Pokémon Go on Android

Pokémon Go is a mobile augmented reality game by Niantic in which the player catches and collects Pokémon that "spawn" at locations all over the map. The game was released for Android and Apple's iOS in July 2016. Niantic switched the base map from Google Maps data to OpenStreetMap data in December 2017. [2][3] There is also some speculation that certain kinds of features in OpenStreetMap may influence where certain Pokémon species spawn. [4] For example, water Pokémon are said to spawn near bodies of water.

Since its initial release, many Pokémon Go players have edited OpenStreetMap in an attempt to improve their gameplay. Many players have made good-faith edits to OpenStreetMap, such as adding buildings and roads that reflect reality on the ground. On the other hand, there have also been many cases of Pokémon Go players adding spurious parks or deleting schools in an attempt to essentially tag for the renderer. Pokémon Go players are strongly encouraged to improve the map but are expected to follow good practice like any other mappers.

Pokémon Go is powered by the Unity game engine.
