I know “Pokémon Go” is unbelievably popular and by far the best among the lot. However, I have already started hunting for some of the similar augmented-reality games as my hunger for catching Pokémon seems to have calmed down a bit.
When it comes to gaming, I never settle down with one for far too long. To me, variety is the real spice that never lets the gaming spirit down in me. Therefore, I have found out the five appealing augmented-reality games that can give Pokémon Go a long run for its own money. Let’s catch ’em all!
Best Alternative to Pokemon Go for iPhone and iPad in 2019
#1. Dragons: Rise of Berk
With this wonderful game, you will get a chance to discover DreamWorks Dragons from the movies like Toothless, Stormfly, Hookfang, and Skullcrusher. There are 350 different Dragon species including deadly nadders, monstrous nightmares, and typhoomerangs. You need to rescue, hatch and train DreamWorks dragons to help you win the battles.

Boasting great visual and audio effects with 3D animations, Dragons: Rise of Berk is extremely addictive and you’d love to play it. Highly recommendable!
#2. Pokémon: Magikarp Jump
I have found “Magikarp Jump” simple yet pretty good game. You have to fish a variety of Magikarp having different patterns. If you catch something out of the box, give your best to help it grow. And share how it looks with your friends.
Want to help your Magikarp live life king size? Decorate the pond using special items so that your pet enjoys living there. Plus, you can also offer yummy food to your endearing fish so that it becomes fatter!
#3. Pokémon Duel
Pokémon Duel is an intriguing strategy board game. You have to create a deck with your favorite Pokemon figures and kick-start a league match to showcase your skill.
You have to lock horns with players from around the world in real-time to enter top League rankings in League Matches. Win maximum duels to bolster your chance to be the ultimate leader. Make the most of power-up to strengthen your stronger. One of the best ways you can dominate the competitions is by creating a lethal strategy and blocking your opponents’ path smartly.
In duels, your deck is made of 6 Pokémon figures, which must be strong enough to win you fights. Therefore, pick them based on their different skill and ability.
#4. Neko Atsume
What about trapping nice cats? Neko Atsume is all about attracting cats with food. There are as many as 40 varieties of cats such as black, white, tabby and calico.
Even though this game is a no-brainer, you would enjoy being a champion Kitty collector. What has charmed me about this game is the real street-smartness required to ensnare the cats. You guessed it, right?
#5. Haypi Monster: The Lost Tower
Haypi Monster: The Lost Tower is a fascinating cartoon style EDU game where you have to feed, breed and train monsters. It has about 200 different monsters. Your task is to collect a lot of beasts and empower them so that they can help you win epic battles.
Form the strongest to challenge the lost tower. As you have a number of levels to conquer, you have to play astutely to remain in the hunt and collect as many coins as possible.
What’s more, the game supports multiple languages including English, Arabic, Dutch, Filipino, French, German, Indonesian, Italian and Japanese.
#6. Draconius GO
Draconius GO is very much identical to Pokemon Go. It is also based on augmented reality where you roam around freely in the real world, while creating a collection of winged horses, vampires, unicorns and other magical creatures. All creatures in the game evolve and change frequently, which makes taming them harder.
There are more than 200 creatures in the game each of them can be improved. The game is available for free to play, but there are optional in-app purchases to move ahead a little faster.
Price: Free with optional in-app purchases
