'Pokemon Go's new AR+ mode will make wild encounters even more realistic

Even so, it had its limitations. 'This feature brings us one step closer to truly realising pokémon the way they are supposed to be represented in the real world'.

If you have an iPhone 6s or above and play Pokemon Go, there's a new mode coming to the game for you to take advantage of called AR+. AR+ changes that, by letting you do things like sneaking up on the Pokemon as they hide in Tall Grass. Like the standard AR mode, AR+ uses your camera to show a Pokemon as if it were physically in front of you. There also appears to be some sort of variable distance that players have to travel to catch a Pokemon - perhaps as a way to increase difficulty of the AR Plus mode for certain types of rare Pokemon. If you walk up to a large Pokemon like Charizard or Gyarados, it'll fill your screen - you may need to tilt your head back a bit to see all of it. Walk up to something small like a Weedle, and you may be tempted to try and squish it with your shoe. Plus, if you capture the Pokemon at close range, you will receive an Expert Handler bonus that provides additional XP and Stardust.

Like Pokemon Go's existing AR mode, AR+ will be available when catching Pokemon and adds depth perception and scaling improvements. Keep in mind though that Pokemon will now run away if they become aware of the players getting too close to them. Pokemon have awareness, meaning quick movement can startle them and cause them to flee. There is no word yet on when or if the feature will come to Android, so this is an Apple exclusive for now.
