玩家在這款遊戲中將成為神奇寶貝訓練師，利用地理定位資訊，在現實世界中移動、探索、捕捉神奇寶貝，也要與其他陣營（共 3 個陣營）互相爭奪道館，可說是活用了《Ingress 虛擬入口》平台架構的作品。 捕捉神奇寶貝所需的「寶貝球」可在地圖上的「PokéStops」取得。PokéStops 中除了寶貝球之外，也可以獲得各種像是「神奇寶貝的蛋」等道具。找出許多神奇寶貝並成功捕捉之後，就會提升神奇寶貝訓練師等級。神奇寶貝訓練師等級提升的話就可以遭遇到更強的神奇寶貝，在 PokéStops 裡面也可以獲得更好的道具。在神奇寶貝當中也存在著可以「進化」的品種。若玩家捕捉到許多相同種類的進化前神奇寶貝，就可以收集到「進化的碎片」。當進化的碎片存到一定數量時，就可以讓該神奇寶貝進化。
