Thanks to Jason Burrows for the tip.

This information comes from Niantic’s blog…

Our team has been making the most of the sunny California weather by walking long distances and enthusiastically testing all of the refinement and new features in Pokémon GO. Many of these refinements have been inspired by feedback received from our field testers in Australia, New Zealand, Japan and United States. Thank you for testing the app and for giving us such great feedback.

We have a few exciting updates to share. We’ve added a new Camera feature that enables Trainers to take photographs of their wild Pokémon encounters. Now you can take a photo of Squirtle next to that scenic lake or Ivysaur hanging out by the park. The photos will be saved to your phone’s camera roll to share with whomever you’d like. We can’t wait to see the varied environments in which trainers will find wild Pokémon.

We’re also thrilled to announce that Pokémon GO’s all-new music track is composed by GAME FREAK’s Junichi Masuda. We’ve been working closely with Masuda-san on several of the core game design elements of Pokémon GO and feel very fortunate to also have drawn from his decades of experience composing original music for the Pokémon games.

We enjoyed participating in Nintendo’s Treehouse Live Pokémon GO developer Q&A session at E3 today. With each day, we’re getting closer to launch and we can’t wait to share this game with everyone. Stay tuned for more details.


As revealed by Game Freak’s Junichi Masuda during today’s Treehouse stream, there are plans for Pokemon GO to connect with the main Pokemon games in the future. This won’t be at launch though, as the developers want players to focus on catching Pokemon in real life. The same stream also reconfirmed that trading will be coming to Pokemon GO at some point.

During today’s Nintendo Treehouse stream hosted at E3, it was announced that the Pokemon GO Plus device for Pokemon GO is planned for release at the end of July. It will be priced at $34.99.

Pokemon GO is only going to have the first generation of Pokemon to start out. However, in the future, there are plans for future generations to be added. This tidbit was shared during today’s E3 Treehouse stream.

Pokemon GO will be featured during tomorrow’s Treehouse stream in the form of a developer Q&A. We now know that Shigeru Miyamoto will be in attendance. Furthermore, he’ll be sharing something new about the app. Make sure you tune in!


Various members of the media were recently given the opportunity to go hands-on with Pokemon GO. One such outlet was GamesBeat, who has now written up a comprehensive report on the game. The site has information about the different aspects of gameplay, microtransactions, Pokemon GO Plus device, and more.

We’ve rounded up all of the details in summary form below. You can also read GamesBeat’s full piece here.


– Same data sets as Ingress are used: monuments, parks, and other local areas of intrigue
– Combination of the real world and the digital

“If you said, ‘What’s the core essence of the game?’ it is that trying to mimic what the world would be like if Pokémon really lived in it. That’s the fundamental mission of the game. They’re out there and you have to discover them and capture them.” – Niantic CEO John Hanke

– Customizable avatar
– Have your own level
– Your level goes up as you do tasks like catching Pokémon or battling at gyms
– Achievements included for things like how long you have walked, how many Pokémon you’ve caught, and even some for different-sized critters
– One achievement example” Big Magikarp achievement
– Map screen is the main interface
– This shows your real-world location and points of interest across the map
– PokeStops: blue cubes where you can collect items, Pokemon show up on the map as icons of each Pokemon
– Gyms show up initially as white icons, and then change based on which team is in control
– Catch Pokemon or collect items from PokeStops by walking close to those locations on the map

“To me … the heart of the game is integrating that sort of discovery and fun of the video game with the fun of being outside and exploring new places. I just think that’s a great combo and I hope players are into it.” – Hanke

– Pokemon GO will vibrate when you get close to a location of interest
– This is only when the app is open and on-screen
– Also has a low-power screen mode if you turn your phone upside down while walking to help conserve battery life
– Pokemon GO will still work and have places for people to visit even if you aren’t living in a major metropolitan city

Another round of Pokemon GO beta invites have been distributed to those who registered their interest in the United States. If you haven’t received a notice, you’ll need to wait for more invites to be sent out. We’ll let you know if that happens.
