Pokemon GO has taken the world by storm. The augmented reality game let users move around and catch Pokemons on the go. While the game may have led to quite a few mishaps, users aren’t ready to stop at anything.

Pokemon is a Nintendo franchise that launched in the 1990s. In its world, “trainers” travel the world to catch varied monsters called Pokemon — rats, dragons, swordlike creatures, and more — and use these critters to fight each other. The trainer’s goal is to “catch ’em all,” as the franchise’s slogan suggests, and become a Pokémon master by defeating prestigious trainers known as gym leaders and Elite Four. Pokemon Go is the latest iteration of this franchise. But unlike previous games, it’s not for Nintendo’s handheld consoles; it’s a free download for Android and iOS devices. Here are the steps to install Pokemon Go on your iOS devices:

1. Installing Pokemon GO for iOS is easy. All you need to do is open the website ios.hipestore.mobi on your device, and just search for Pokemon GO.

2. After selecting download now, you need to select the 1.0 version under the “Non Jailbreak” sub head – and then just press download.

3. Now click on “Open in App Store” and then press install when it flashes, and you are there! You now have Pokemon GO downloading on your phone.

Android users can download the APK on their smartphones and then install the same from Settings. The game, however, doesn’t work on Android N just yet.
