Pokémon Go looks set to be the next gaming craze that is already creating a viral buzz online.
The game, which is a free app for iPhones and Android devices was recently launched in the US, Australia and New Zealand. The UK release has been delayed due to the unexpected popularity of the game causing repeated server failure issues.
Pokémon Go is an augmented reality game that encourages you to explore your surroundings in the hunt for Pokémon to capture.
Although currently unavailable in the UK, UK android users can get access to the app through third party site, APKMirror.
