We learned during E3, courtesy of Shigeru Miyamoto seemingly jumping ahead with an announcement for its Plus add-on, that Pokémon Go should be arriving in July. As a result the field tests are heading to the end of the line as developer Niantic makes, presumably, final preparations for the app's launch.
Those that have been taking part in the US have now been notified that the field test will end on 30th June. In addition to the field test ending all save data will be wiped, and Niantic's message expresses thanks to testers for the feedback and data that their efforts have provided.
There's little doubt that this will be a significant release for The Pokémon Company and Nintendo. The app has generated plenty of interest online, and is sure to be a key part of the mobile strategy for both companies.
Are you looking forward to the full release of Pokémon Go in the coming weeks?
With thanks to all that sent this in.
I'm super excited for the game; I just wish that the Pokemon GO Plus wasn't way overpriced!
It would be amazing if it came out July 1st
@HyrulianOfHyrule That would be amazing.
I am so looking forward to this. Not a big Pokémon fan, but I love the concept of this game. Loved finding Denpa Men out and about. If this game isn't bogged down by too many in app purchases, I can see myself really getting into finding Pokémon out in the real world.
@dragonfire535 We can only hope
@LegendOfPokemon At least we don't need the extra device to actually play it.
@DarkmarkUnited Well let's hope for everyone sake between July 4-8
@HyrulianOfHyrule that would make an EPIC birthday present for me
So is this a full basic pokemon game then? (by basic i mean no story mode) collect, fight, name, trade, train, and bond with your own personal pokemon?
I wish it doesnt comes in July 31, like Miitomo that was announced for March and was released until March 31
I can't wait for this game to come out my heart is pounding for it to come out!!!!
@ThomasBW84 There's an error in the 3rd paragraph. You wrote:
"The app has generation plenty of interest online"
It should be:
"The app has generated plenty of interest online"
@Dj64Mk7 I'll fix that, thanks!
I'm hoping it will GO out in the field and never come back.
I am so hyped for Sun and Moon, and this!
I was never chosen to play the beta but I'll be sure to download it on the first day it comes out!
What can I say 15 years ago when I was a 7 yr old kid I always wished for something like this to happen 15 years later feels like it's here to bad it's not fully real with real holograms 😂 but anyway close enough maybe one day 😉
