Niantic Reboots Ingress Mobile Game; Now Known As Ingress Prime

'Pokemon Go' to Add New Shiny Pokemon to Commemorate Launch of 'Ingress Prime'

You can grab a copy of Ingress Prime on Google Play or the App Store.

While this would be fine if the game had been made better, according to numerous game's fans, the sci-fi massively multiplayer title is now demonstrably worse. Ingress uses similar AR technology to Pokemon Go (the games often use similar real world locations for in-game hubs) but has a vastly different game concept.

U.S. software developer Niantic might be best known for Pokémon GO nowadays, but this wasn't always the case.

Napoli clash a final for PSG says Neymar
Thomas Tuchel has confirmed legendary goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon will make his first Champions League appearance in a PSG shirt. Speaking on PSG's clash with Napoli , Daily Mail quoted Neymar as saying: "It's a very hard match, it will be a final for us".

In Ingress Prime players (dubbed agents) are tasked with visiting virtual portals situated around real-world landmarks in order to collect "Exotic Matter". A Shiny Cubone with green skin will represent Ingress Prime's "Enlightened" faction while the blue-flamed Shiny Ponyta represents the rival "Resistance" faction.

The core gameplay hasn't changed, but with Ingress Prime, Niantic has introduced cleaner visuals, a new UI, and modern graphics. It was received positively and garnered quite the player base, though by the time Pokemon Go came out in 2016, Ingress' player numbers had plummeted drastically. There will also be smaller "Satellite" community events available to players all around the world, much like what we've seen with Pokémon Go's weekend challenges.

In addition to the new Shiny Pokemon, Niantic is also offering players a couple of free customization items for their trainers to commemorate the launch of Ingress Prime.
