On your mobile device, the Pokemon Go experience consists of a wide range of activities. The game has various aspects, such as collecting Pokemon, spinning Pokestops, and engaging in raid battles.
Sound and music are a part of the experience that goes along with all these distinct gaming features. Tapping on a Pokemon makes a sound, music plays when you play the game, and sound effects appear in other scenarios.
