Now Playing: Pokemon GO - Explore Your Town and Catch Pokemon!

The AR game is free with microtransactions, though if you want to catch Pokemon without unlocking your phone, you can buy a $35 optional accessory. The accessory vibrates when a Pokemon is nearby, at which point you'll have to press a button to catch the creature.
