Tutorial: How to Play 'Pokemon Go' Mobile Game

"Pokemon Go" is a new mobile game that asks players to wander their real-world neighborhoods on the hunt for the animated monsters made famous years ago by cartoons, video games and trading cards. Players build their collections, make their Pokemons more powerful and do battle with those held by other players. The set up is relatively quick. You customise your avatar — choosing the color of its hair and style of clothing - then set off on your adventures.

The app displays your avatar amid a grid of streets and other bits of geography, such as rivers and parks. It's like a bare-bones version of Google Maps with a pretty sky above it. You can see in all directions by spinning your character around. But it takes a little getting used to.
