‘Pokemon Go’ Release Date Looming; Beta Testers Reportedly Said Gym Battles Are Different

"Pokemon Go" is heavily anticipated by gamers and fans of the franchise, and rumors suggest that a release date may be announced during the upcoming E3 2016 event.

In a report by Jobs N Hire, a source claimed that the release "is rapidly approaching" and everyone just couldn't wait to hear any news about the video game that involves real life. According to the website, beta tests have been already conducted and it happened in Japan, Australia and New Zealand. Furthermore, more testings are expected to happen in the United States.

According to a report by the Ecumenical News, citizens from the United States are being asked to sign in at Niantic Labs to be part of the testing team. The site claimed that there will only be limited slots while they try to develop "Pokemon Go" as it comes near its release date.

"The Pokemon Company and Niantic invite users to field test Pokémon GO in the United States of America," the blog post revealed. "Please note that sign up doesn't guarantee access to the field test."

As for the actual gameplay, Parent Herald revealed how some testers find the gym battles to be different. According to the testers, gym battles are very much different from the regular battles, especially with regular trainers.

As stated, battles differ with the use of dodging by swiping the screen during battles. In addition to that, Pokemons are to be defeated within 120 seconds. Experience boost and points are collected during the game to upgrade gadgets and the monsters.

Pokemons that will be present in the game are said to be just the first 150 monsters introduced in the series. Although the release date for "Pokemon Go" hasn't been really confirmed yet, speculations and rumors are circling around that the one-of-a-kind gaming title would arrive early next year or late this year.
