Pokémon GO, the Augmented Reality Smartphone Game, Is Now Available

After a relatively short beta-testing period, Pokémon Go is now rolling out to Android and iOS devices right now. If you want to catch 'em all in the real world, your wait is over.

By now most of us know the details of the highly-anticipated, real-world Pokémon adventure, but if you've yet to learn, check out the video above for a quick overview (courtesy of CNET). Basically, you use your phone to seek out and capture Pokémon in the real world. You don't battle to capture them, but you can battle with friends and other players all over the globe.

The app is free to use, but there may be in-app purchases and a $35 watch accessory can help you detect new Pokémon without relying on smartphone notifications. The watch isn't available quite yet, but that app is. If you want to download it now, grab a copy on Google Play or the iTunes App Store.
