Pokémon GO Field Testing Hits U.S. This Month

Pokémon GO Field Testing Hits U.S. This Month

Niantic Labs is now inviting fans in the U.S. to participate in Pokémon GO field testing, with access to the beta version coming later this month.

“Eligible players in the United States are currently being invited to participate in a field test for Pokémon GO,” reads a post on the official Pokémon website. “The Pokémon GO field test will give users the opportunity to share early feedback and help improve the Pokémon GO experience.

U.S. Trainers can register by visiting Niantic’s official website.

Last month, Android and iOS users in Australia and New Zealand were offered a chance to field test the augmented reality mobile game; one person who received early access even leaked nine minutes of gameplay footage. That person was banned shortly after and the video content was removed.

Players in Japan were the first to participate in field testing, with invites being offered to to that audience in March.

Niantic Labs has not announced what region will be next in queue for testing, however. Fans in Europe eagerly await.

Will you be registering for a chance to try out Pokémon GO ahead of its release later this year? Feel free to let us know in the comments section below or on our social media channels.

  1. I got in, but now I’m having issues getting my Google Play app to realize that I should be able to access the beta. I HATE MY LIFE.
