Pokemon Go players look for better disability options and snag a companion app

Bah, it was just a bird.

Have you ever suffered from depression? Not just being sad, but full-blown clinical depression? It’s pretty horrible, and it prevents you from doing much of anything. Pokémon Go players are finding that the game helps out quite a bit, though; just having that motivation to get up, get dressed, and head out in the world can make a difference. So that’s all good, and it sheds more light on why the community is requesting more options to support disabled players such as those with muscle disorders and vision issues.

Of course, you might have no disabilities but just want an easier time finding where various pokémon are hiding, in which case the new Poke Radar map will provide you with exactly what you need by tracking where you can catch various monsters, assuming that you’re not being struck by the latest glitch to affect the game. (No word about Onix in the Caspian Sea.) You can also pick up a thematically appropriate Pokédex case for your phone.

Also worth noting is that the game is finally launching in Japan tomorrow with the game’s first sponsored location. So you won’t have to stop playing just because you’ve left the country, not that much of anything would stop fans at this point.
