Pokémon GO just dropped in Japan, and it doesn't get much more creative, in terms of trying to level up quickly as possible, than this!

Amidst all the Pokémon GO madness, it's heartwarming, bittersweet moments like this that can really strike a chord of positivity in an otherwise mad and wild circus.

So, when a Japanese Pokémon GO player tweeted that he found his deceased younger brother's favorite pokémon beside his headstone, it's a nice bit of serendipity.

Which one would you guys opt for? The black one featuring Pokémon Sun and Moon's two legendaries, Lunala and Solgaleo is looking pretty sweet...if only these bad boys came with Sun and Moon, right?

Niantic set out to break down the barrier between purely handheld Pokemon gaming, and actually being able to train and battle, and capture Pokemon IRL, with their real world gaming platform Pokemon GO.

If these three images are any indication of what we might be able to expect from Pokemon GO and the platforms unique mobile location tech. / augmented reality gaming effectiveness; well then we are in for a mighty fine treat, indeed. 

Just like the game players can only catch certain wild Pokemon in certain native environments. You're not about to find a Wailord straight chillin' in a sandbox at your nearest park. And much like how the game works, you'll have to get those steps in to hatch any eggs you acquire.

I just can't wait for the battles to start up. Come at me bro. An early user field test hits Japan soon and there's no release date, so realistically it's probably time to cruise over there.

And just in case your juices were't already flowing, here is some footage from the SXSW Gaming Panel to give you a better look at Pokemon GO in action.
