I’m sure everyone has heard of the worldwide sensation Pokemon and its most recent incarnation Pokemon GO. The mobile game allows players to walk around in the real world while hunting and battling Pokemon on their phone. With most games, it can be hard to learn the basics, especially when it comes to such a long-running game series. This book introduces players to the basics while providing tips and tricks to help you on your journey.

Starting with the very basics, including how to download the app and set up your avatar, to the more integral details of which Type of Pokemon is stronger or weaker when battling. They cover numerous tips, my favourite of which was using a Roomba to ‘walk’ more steps to hatch an egg quickly. Very creative!

Overall, the book was simple and easy to read with a few grammatical errors that make me think a native English speaker might not have written it. It taught me a lot about the game, and I would recommend it to anyone interested in getting started with Pokemon GO. I give it 4/5.
