Pokemon GO April Fools: Experience Pokemon GO With 8-Bit Graphics

The team over at Niantic have kicked off April Fools Day a little early with Pokemon GO. The team says that gamers can now experience the popular augmented reality game with breakthrough 8-bit visuals with twice the visual definition of 4K. Amazing!

We always want to bring you the most immersive graphics experience possible, and we’re excited to share our latest breakthrough with millions of Pokémon GO Trainers around the world. Starting later today, you can be one of the first to experience this all-new graphics engine.

Experience Pokémon GO like never before with cutting-edge 8-BIT GRAPHICS! Registering approximately twice the definition of 4K, the chunky squares of each pixel provide realistic detail and unbelievable definition. Your Pokédex will feel lifelike in ways previously unimagined on any handheld device ever created.

We feel 100% confident in saying that you’ve never seen Pokémon like this in Pokémon GO! We’re looking forward to your feedback on this brand-new feature. Tell us your thoughts on our latest update with #PokemonGO, and be sure to include a picture of your favorite Pokémon!




  1. I hate Niantic so much for not understanding their own product and the fans. For them this is a joke, but I would bet many would actually like to see an actual “8-bit” (or rather 16-bit) option.


    1. From the way they’re wording it, it sounds like it could be a permanent optional feature to use these menu sprites


      1. I doubt it, and I don’t see an option yet. But even if this became an option it would be half-assed, because it would only be menu sprites, not world, battles, items, etc. Although, half-assing this *would* fit their MO =|


    1. It’s April Fools. It doesn’t need to be 8bit for them to day 8bit. I say untrue things on April Fools and people know it’s not serious.
