Pokemon GO now available in the U.S., Australia and New Zealand

Pokemon Go, the augmented reality mobile game from Nintendo and Niantic Labs is available for download in Australia and New Zealand.

For those who haven’t been listening to the buzz, Pokemon Go uses your phone’s camera and location to put Pokémon in the real world.

The game uses your phone’s GPS system to locate monuments and various local landmarks from which you can pick up inventory such as pokéballs and potions. The game calls these Pokéstop’s. Pokémon then emerge from the ‘tall grass’ and you have to catch ’em all.

That way, as you travel around to landmarks and notable locations in your city, you can catch the creatures and then train and battle them at gyms. The game was created by Niantic, the maker of a similar AR mobile game called Ingress, in collaboration with Nintendo and The Pokémon Company. While it’s a free app, Pokémon Go does contain microtransactions costing $0.99 to $99.99. You can also purchase a $35 wrist-worn wearable, due out some time this month, that lets you play the game without having to unlock your phone.

“Certain Pokémon appear near their native environment – look for Water-type Pokémon by lakes and oceans,” the developer hinted. “Visit PokéStops, found at interesting places like museums, art installations, historical markers, and monuments, to stock up on Poké Balls and helpful items.”
