Pokémon Go Footage Leaks from Australia

It comes from a land down under.

Almost nine minutes of Pokemon Go footage has been uploaded by beta tester and YouTube user Darkathion.

The video shows off character customization, the overworld map, catching Pokemon with and without the AR camera, gyms, replenishing items, and hatching Pokemon eggs. This footage comes shortly after the beta version was made available in Australia.

It seems that catching a Pokemon requires users to throw the Pokeball inside a size-changing ring. Items replenish by spinning the image of a Pokestop location, a real-world location given in-game representation.

YouTube commenters warned Darkathion that Niantic, the developers of Pokemon Go, have been taking down leaks and banning users.

Did Lucario leak this?

I can't decide if this looks good or bad.

I kinda think it looks really boring...but then I also see some of the core elements of Pokemon are there. 

I can definitely see the Ingress influence here, but it's different enough to get me excited. Ingress changed a ton through updates, so don't think that this will be the same game we'll be playing in a year or two!

I dont think it looks very good. But I dont really care about Pokemon, so...

If he didn't have permission to upload this footage, he can pretty much say goodbye to ever getting to beta test Nintendo products again.

It's pretty fun, if only for 10 mins at a time.
