The game itself is described by their website as, "Travel between the real world and the virtual world of Pokémon with Pokémon GO for iPhone and Android devices.

Pokémon GO is built on Niantic’s Real World Gaming Platform and will use real locations to encourage players to search far and wide in the real world to discover Pokémon. Pokémon GO allows you to find and catch more than a hundred species of Pokémon as you explore your surroundings."
