The much-anticipated “Pokemon Go” is scheduled for release sometime next year and series fans and gamers alike are excited to see at how the unique “Pokemon” game will play out. Developer Niantic recently revealed more details about the promising mobile game and it looks to simulate a true “Pokemon” experience for fans.

To provide a genuine “Pokemon” experience, Niantic is looking to fill the world with virtual “Pokemon.” Aside from this, the developer is also looking to create “Pokemon Gyms,” but they will, of course, be harder to find. These gyms will serve as an excellent area for players to level up their “Pokemon,” so a little effort is required to reach these gyms.

In an interview with VentureBeat, chief executive of Niantic, John Hanke explained that finding “Pokemon” is an authentic experience as each of the creatures will be found in their natural habitats. For example, the water type “Pokemon” like Gyrados, Staryu and Squirtle will be found on beaches.

"Pokemon will live in different parts of the world depending on what type of Pokémon they are. Water Pokémon will live near the water. It may be that certain Pokémon will only exist in certain parts of the world." 

Seeing as how “Pokemon” will vary from area to area, some players worry that it’ll be troublesome to capture some of the creatures especially if they are far from certain locations. Hanke explained that trading will play a big part in “Pokemon Go” as it will allow players to get “Pokemon” they have no access to. Hanke added that events will also be held wherein players can trade and battle with each other.

The “Pokemon Go” announcement trailer showcased a lot of the gameplay features of the game, one of which is a special event wherein players battle against Mewtwo. Still, it isn’t sure how the game will look like on launch day.
