    Niantic Labs on twitter recently announced that the Field Test will be coming to Australia/NZ later this month. To be in the Field Test you will need to sign up HERE and selected people will be able to use the Field Test. Will you be able to do this Field Test?
    Here is some information from the site to keep in mind.

    I just hope that not that many people sign up so I will be accepted but that's unlikely.

    Would totally sign up for this, however after reading my only choices for mobile OS are ios or Android I'm a bit annoyed as I own a Windows phone but what can I do. Good luck & I hope you get selected!

    AFAIK, it uses your actual location (just like Ingress) so running the app outside of Australia would not work and could result in a ban just like what happened to two redditors

    If we get banned for that. That would probably mean we would get banned if we hacked poke balls in.

    Oh and to those who are wondering how this field test works, they'll ask for your email and they'll send you an invite later on, at least that's what the folks over at reddit saysAFAIK, he Japan field test was only for Android devices.

    Oh and you don't battle wild Pokemon at all. You only capture them

    I heard you only capture wild pokemon but you can battle trainers, however, pokemon can learn up to 2 moves at a time.

    Step 1) Leave America
    Step 2) Move to Australia or Japan
    Step 3) Profit from getting all the kool kids stuff

    It's true, millions of Aussies suffer from buffer desese.

    Anyway let's get back on topic, Do you guys think maybe they will bring more generations of Pokemon in future updates?
