Earlier today, we posted the pricing of microtransactions for Pokemon GO in the UK and Japan. We now have the same information for the United States.

The prices are as follows:

– 100 PokeMoney = $0.99
– 550 PokéMoney = $4.99
– 1,200 PokéMoney = $9.99
– 2,500 PokéMoney = $19.99
– 5,200 PokéMoney = $39.99
– 14,500 PokéMoney = $99.99

Spending PokeMoney is the same across the board for all territories – there are no differences compared to the UK and Japan. In any case, that list is as follows:

– Pokéballs: 20 = 100 PokéMoney; 100 = 460 PokéMoney; 200 = 800 PokéMoney
– Incense (attracts Pokémon): 1 = 80 PokéMoney; 8 = 500 PokéMoney; 25 = 1250 PokéMoney
– Lucky Eggs: 1 = 80 PokéMoney; 8 = 500 PokéMoney; 25 = 1250 PokéMoney
– 1 Lure Module = 100 PokéMoney; 8 Lure Modules = 680 PokéMoney
– 1 Egg Incubator = 150 PokéMoney
– Bag Upgrade = 200 PokéMoney
– Pokémon Storage Upgrade = 200 PokéMoney

If you’re in the United States, Australia, or New Zealand, you can now download Pokemon GO. But what about other territories? The Pokemon Company says the app “coming soon to Canada, Europe and South America.”

Meanwhile, a new launch trailer is in for Pokemon GO. We’ve included that below.

Pokemon GO’s launch began yesterday having debuted in Australia and New Zealand. Folks in other regions have also been able to get their hands on the game for Android thanks to an APK file floating around.

Unfortunately, early reports are surfacing pertaining to a battery issue. We’re hearing that, in some cases, users are experiencing heavy battery drain. So what can be done?

Niantic does say on an official support page that the team is working on a solution. While you wait, you can try adjusting screen brightness, minimizing in-game actions, and turning the sound off. Pokemon GO also has a battery saver option that can be found in the settings, though the results with using that are unclear currently.

Pokemon GO footage

As people begin to get their hands on the final version of Pokemon GO, footage is starting to come. Start out by watching a few minutes of gameplay below.

Update: Pokemon GO is now live on iOS in Australia here. APK for Android users is located here (via).


Pokemon GO is finally here. Following the game’s announcement last September, it’s now starting to live.

Currently, Pokemon GO is up on the Google Store for Android devices here. Note that it’s not yet live on iOS. Additionally, we’re hearing that the app has not yet been made available in all territories like the United States, but we’ll keep you updated as the situation develops.

Android users now have access to a new version of Miitomo. Earlier today, version 1.3.1 released. We haven’t seen any equivalent on iOS (at least for now), and given the version change, this likely implements some bug fixes.
