Nintendo shares up as Pokemon Go heads toward global launch

The title is now the No. 1 free app in Apple Inc's USA iTunes store, according to a chart maintained by the company.

Once players have signed up using that Google account, the app appears to give itself full access to their Google account - emails, calendars, personal documents, location history and all.

We've been hard at work to bring you plenty of Pokemon GO coverage, including 20 important features the game doesn't explain, as well as a comprehensive wiki guide for all of your other unanswered questions.

The mobile game was developed by Niantic Labs and Pokemon Company, which is one-third owned by Nintendo. In the game, in order to find new Pokemons or battle with other players, you have to physically walk (or ride or drive) to these different locations.

Trainer progress resets to Level 1: This can happen if you inadvertently create two Pokemon Go accounts - one using Google and another using the Pokemon Trainer Club. Stay tuned.

To play, you fire up the game and then start trekking to prominent local landmarks - represented in the game as "Pokestops" - where you can gather supplies such as Pokeballs.

Nintendo is best known for its gaming franchise Super Mario Brothers and its console the Wii U, which it launched in America in November 2012.

While everyone is hurriedly joining the Pokémon Go craze they may not be aware of what they're giving up in return for playing the game. The first Nintendo mobile game, Miitomo (released in March) was considered a disappointment.

O'Fallon Police said the perpetrators of the robberies used the game by adding "a beacon to a PokeStop", referring to an aspect of the game that enables users to lure additional players.
