Several fans have been patiently waiting for the release of the upcoming "Pokémon Go" game. Now, new reports are claiming that some VR gameplay was uploaded by one of the field testers of the game.

'Pokémon Go' VR reveals Machop on the street

A gameplay video shared on Reddit showed a player trying to catch a wild Machop. A lot of fans who were able to watch the video were startled seeing Machop alongside the "Pokémon Go" AR setting that appears really interesting.

Aside from that, the most-recent "Pokémon Go" video also suggested that players should be precise in throwing a Pokéball. As a matter of fact, the player on the video missed catching a Pokémon due to his poor calculations.

Previous reports claimed that Pokémons could fight back, which makes the upcoming "Pokémon Go" more exciting. Interestingly, this did not happen to the player in the video; otherwise, he would not have jammed the fight-type Pokémon.

Avid players think that "Pokémon Go" will be more exciting than the previous Pokémon games. Gamers of the upcoming game will likely see Pokémons in the wild through their Android or iOS-runned smartphones, which the first "Pokémon Go" trailer suggested.

Gamers in United States, Europe to try 'Pokémon Go' beta soon

At present, Niantic and The Pokémon Company is currently holding a beta version testing program in Australia and New Zealand. In fact, another "Pokémon Go" footage was leaked by an Australian gamer who was a part of the beta testing phase.

The said "Pokémon Go" clip revealed some details about the upcoming game such as the character creation feature and the actual gameplay. Before its official release this year, the beta testing for the "Pokémon Go" game has already been rolled out in Japan, New Zealand and Australia. Rumor has it that players in the United States and Europe should prepare for the arrival of the Niantic game's beta version.

Do you think Machop's presence is one obvious indication that "Pokémon Go" will be much more fun and exciting than the previous Pokémon games? What are the things you expect in the upcoming "Pokémon Go" game? Share to us your thoughts in the comment section below.
