Pokemon GO® SmartHunt® – Augmented Reality


Pokémon GO is the hottest new craze to hit the augmented reality app market. So of course the Smart Team at SmartHunts has jumped on board and taken it to the next level, creating our own real life version by merging two of the most popular location-based mobile games, Pokemon Go and SmartHunts, into a one-of-a-kind new offering for your organization!

Say hello to the Pokemon Go SmartHunt, where augmented reality interfaces with the real world! Teams of players will roam the playing field attempting to capture, battle and train virtual creatures within the Pokemon Go app. But it doesn’t end there! We also have “real life” Pokemon characters hidden around the playing field that teams must locate and capture as well as Pokemon stops and gyms where teams will battle other teams for prestige points!

After team avatars are created in the SmartHunts app, the app displays numerous photo and video missions for teams to complete to earn combat power as well as access to a map of the team’s current location and immediate surroundings. Features on the map include a number of PokéStops and Pokémon gyms. PokéStops provide players with items, such as eggs, PokeBalls and potions. Teams will also be equipped with items called lures (aka wearable GPS tracking devices), which attract wild Pokémon. Gyms serve as battle locations for team-based king of the hill type matches. These are typically located at places of interest.

Teams that locate a gym first will deposit a creature (aka one of their team members) to defend the gym and await battle against another team. The winner of these head to head battles wins the other player onto their team as well as big bonus points.

Points accumulate throughout and our event culminates with all teams gathering together for a multimedia slideshow of all teams escapades as well as an awards ceremony for the winning team!
