"If nothing else, Pokemon Go has shown that there are "dormant" Nintendo fans eager to trial its content for smartphones", writes Kim. I checked the version of Pokémon GO I downloaded in the original 'How to.' post linked to above and it doesn't use any of the permissions highlighted above. Pokemon Go is displayed on a cell phone in Los Angeles on Friday, July 8, 2016.

In-game shots of how Pokemon Go looks. After launching in Australia, New Zealand and the United States, the staggering popularity of the game appeared to catch Niantic off-guard, which had to make the decision to temporarily pause the worldwide rollout.

It has already generated headlines from armed robbers using it to lure gamers into a trap, to a person discovering a dead body in a river while searching for a Pokemon character. You only need to throw Poke Balls directly and capture them. Once you catch a Pokemon, you can take them to a gym where they can battle other Pokemon.

According to some calculations, Pokemon Go will have to generate between $140 and $196 million each month in order to have a significant impact on profits. Augmented Reality has been defined as a direct or indirect view of a physical and real-world environment whose elements, however, are extrapolated (augmented) with the help of a computer.

The more Pokemon you catch, the more Experience Points you can earn.

It's also worth noting that Pokemon Go fever is being exploited by criminals at least in one state. The newly released game had also claimed the top spot in Apple's iTunes store, both in the free app category, as well as the highest-grossing category.

The official Pokemon GO app was first launched in Australia and New Zealand on July 4th, and later on July 6th in the US, but the malicious app was first uploaded to an online malware detection repository on July 7. The game isn't without its pitfalls, however. It uses the player's phone's Global Positioning System and clock to detect when and where you are in the said game and make those "Pokemon" appear around you so you can catch them.
