If you haven't kept up with the social medias, this is something that might've flown over your head. Nintendo's newest venture, Pokémon GO, just began rolling out on iOS and Android yesterday.
GO is a bit of a change from their main line-up. It's an Augmented Reality game that runs in the background as you travel about, allowing you to actually locate Pokémon in the world around you. For instance, if you have the app running and you're walking along a beach, it might notify you that a water type is nearby and that you can catch it.
At the time of release, the app only features the original 151 Pokémon, but it's safe to assume more will be added later. It's not available in all regions, but you can check Google Play here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nianticlabs.pokemongo and iTunes here: https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/pokemon-go/id1094591345?mt=8
