More about Pokémon Go

Pokémon is an augmented reality game in which players can access odd creatures from screen of their smartphones as they move about or guided by the Map on their phone. The game is filled with fun and excitement and has attracted many downloads within a few days of its launch.


It is possible you have been seeing smartphone owners gathering and glued to their devices in restaurants, churches, parks, and other land mark locations around you, these could be playing Pokémon.

The popularity of this game has been a huge discussion online and offline. If you have an online business, you may want to know how this augmented reality game impacts on your business. This short piece will shed some light into how Pokémon Go can truly impact on your business.

How Pokémon Go is played

First off, it would be important to discuss how this game is actually played.

The aim of the game is that you capture creatures or pocket monsters, train them and use them to battle other Pokémons for rewards.

You make the capture by looking through your smartphone as you navigate your surroundings with your device.

It will interest you to know that as you keep navigating your vicinity with your smartphone the Pokémons of various kinds will appear to you.

To collect or capture these creatures, you will have to use a special Pokéball that will encircle the creature that has appeared on a spot.

The fun of the game is not limited to you just scanning and capturing virtual pocket monsters in your environment. You can leverage Pokéstops and Poke Gym in this game.


Pokéstops are destinations of interest or landmarks in your town, city where you can collect items to power-up your captured Pokémons.

Pokéstops could be popular business places and places of interests (Public Libraries, Restaurants, Hotels, Recreational Parks, Art Galleries, etc.) as detected by the GPS of your phone.



From  Pokéstops you can access Lure Modules, Lucky eggs, Pokéballs, Great Balls, Ultra Balls,  Razz Berries, Portions, Revive and Incense.

These and other items help to lure, hatch, heal, feed, and increase the strength of the Pokémon you have collected at one level or the other.

Your ability to access more Pokémons and refresh them with items collected from Pokéstops will increase of your chances of training powerful Pokémons that can be used as dogfight in Poke Gym.

The Poke Gym

The Poke Gym is a virtual gym detected by the app.

They are large buildings you will see on the phone and where you will have to choose a team according to their color – Yellow (Instinct), Red (Valor) or Blue (Mystic).

You can test the strength of your team by battling with friends or by battling with opposing teams.

The more wins you have in Pokémon fight earns your Pokécoins – which is in-game currency that can be used in micro transactions to get better hold of the game.
