The Makers Of Pokémon GO Are Looking For Game Testers In The United States

There are only a few months left (probably) before the young and young at heart will be able to live out their Pokémon fantasies in glorious augmented reality with the upcoming Pokémon GO game. But a select few will get an early ticket to Kanto (or wherever you set a Pokémon game with an entire planet's worth of playing surface). Today The Pokémon Company announced that it was looking for participants for the game's "Field Test," and registration is open on the US site. (It may be open to others, but we can't verify that.)

The Pokemon Trading Card Game Online Has A New Beta Version For Android Tablets, And Everyone's Invited

If you're around the same age as me, you fondly remember playing the Pokemon Trading Card Game (TCG for short) for hours in middle school. Or more accurately, you remember watching all the other kids play it because your parents couldn't afford to buy 10,000 licensed pieces of cardboard just so you could get a shiny Blastoise. (It's OK, I played the Game Boy Color version for vicarious thrills.) As it turns out, the Pokemon card game is still rolling along with a huge following, and now there's even an online digital version. Yes, that's a video game based on a card game based on a video game - try to keep up.

[Wubba-Lubba-Dub-Dub] Pocket Mortys Takes Adult Swim's Rick & Morty To The Pokemon Dimension

If you haven't yet checked out Rick & Morty, Adult Swim's delightfully foul science fiction cartoon, you're missing out - and not just on obscure Android Police posts. The show is only two seasons old, but it's taken the Internet by storm, filling the irreverent, high-concept, mean-spirited place that Futurama used to hold. For those of you who are already addicted and waiting patiently for season three, take a portal ride over to the Play Store: Adult Swim Games just released a licensed game that drops Rick & Morty into a tongue-in-cheek version of Pokemon.

Pokémon GO From Niantic Labs Lets You Find And Fight Pokémon In The Real World, Coming To Android In 2016

Now that Niantic Labs has left Google behind, we've all been wondering what its next big game will be. Ingress has managed more than 12 million downloads, but dare I say the just announced Pokémon GO will have even more. This game (coming in 2016) will have a similar augmented reality premise to Ingress, but instead of capturing portals you're capturing Pokémon.

Pokémon Shuffle Is Now Available To All After Geo-Restricted Beta Phase

There's finally an official Pokémon game on a mobile device, and that's great. It's just... well, it's not the game that everyone really wants. Pokémon Shuffle is a matching puzzle game with hefty in-app purchases and a timer system. It was released in geo-restricted beta a week or two ago, but now it's live for everyone. Maybe if we give them enough money they'll release a proper Pokémon game?

If you remember Google's April Fools Day promotion that scattered digital Pokemon in maps all over the globe, you'll remember that it was awesome. Google also allowed those who had found all 150 Pokemon (with or without #151, Mew) to submit a form for a special prize. It looks like the prizes are finally making their way to the winners. Reddit user "tinygrump" got one and kindly posted a photo.

[New Game] SEGA's Dragon Coins Combines Pokemon With A Weird Coin-Shooting Arcade Game, For Some Reason

Google's recent foray into Maps-based monster catching has proven that even full-grown Android users love them some Pokemon. Maybe that's why storied publisher SEGA has decided to make its own entry in the monster-catching genre. But why, oh why, is the core mechanic in Dragon Coins based around those little quasi-gambling quarter-shooter arcade games?

Try to follow along here: in Dragon Coins, your party of anime-style monsters is represented by little drawers in a shelf. Tap on the shelf to drop coins at strategic spots, where a moving wall will push them all forward into the drawers. When one of your monsters gets enough coins it attacks the enemy, another monster hanging out at the top of the screen.
