The release date for "Pokémon GO" is 2016. As of December 2015, the developers have not announced an exact release date for the game. Niantic, Inc, the Pokémon Company and Nintento Co., Ltd. all contribute to the development.
"Pokémon GO" is expected to use real location information and allow players to search the real world to find Pokémons. Players are also expected to be able to trade and battle their Pokémons. As of 2015, the developers plan to release the game for free on the App Store and the Google Play Store.
Developers are working on a small device called Pokémon GO Plus. It is a wristwear product that sends notifications to the player even when he's not looking at his phone. The device communicates with the phone via Bluetooth and vibrates when an event takes place near the player's location in the real world.
