17 Essential Tips For Pokemon Go That Many People Don't Know Yet. Wow!
If your aim is bad, then you will no doubt drop more than a few Poke Balls. So if your Poke Ball misses the target and falls to the ground, you can pick them back. All you have to do is tap on that Poke Ball and it will recover.
This way you can avoid wasting tons of Poke Balls on one single pokemon!
#16 Make Pikachu your first Pokemon.
At the very start, you are offered the usual trio of Squirtle, Charmander and Bulbasaur, but if you walk away from them, there is a chance that you will have the opportunity to catch a Pikachu.
So well start in style!
#15 Save that battery.
With the game requiring you to have your screen, internet, and GPS turned on at all times, Pokemon Go proves to be a major battery hog, something that trainers cannot afford.
Luckily, the game comes with an in built battery saver to prevent your phone from losing juice too quickly. Find it in the game's settings menu.
#14 The footprints show you how far away a Pokemon is.
Every footprint indicates 50 meters of distance. A pokemon with one footprint underneath is between 50 and 100 meters away from you. Three footprints show that the pokemon is less than 200 meters away.
#13 Pokemon close by can be summoned.
When on the map, in the bottom right corner you can find a tab that lists any nearby Pokemon. Most of these Pokemon should have a number of 1 to 3 footprints under them. However, sometimes you may find that a Pokemon listed has no footprints, if this is the case, track that Pokemon by tapping on it, and it should pop up on the map in a few seconds.
#12 Battles are not turn based.
Unlike the old games, battles are not turn-based. You can dodge the enemy Pokemon atttack, just swiping left or right when they launch an attack will make your life so much easier.
To deal a special attack, you will need to hold down on the screen and release. In order to perform a special attack, you will need to charge the meter below a pokemon's health until a bar is full. Different special attacks have different meters.
#11 Power up your Pokemon after they're fully evolved.
By doing so it will give you more Combat Power or CP.
#10 Hit PokeStops faster with the X.
When you've hit a PokeStop and spun the sign you can just hit the X at the bottom to collect the items, you don't have to burst each bubble to grab them. You don't have to wait for the animation to stop.
#9 Get free items for defending gyms.
You can store your Pokemon in the gym and become a Gym Defender. Immediately thereafter you can check the Shop tab and click on the shield icon to access your Defender Bonus for free PokeCoins and Stardust. Check back every 20 hours as long as your pokemon have not been dethroned, and to recieve more. The amount may vary depending on how many Pokemon you have in the gym, or their CP.
#8 That rustling grass animation on your map indicates something.
It does not mean there will be pokemon there, but apparently it means there is only a chance something will appear if you hang out in that area long enough.
#7 The 'game world' is layered over our own.
So, the fields and rivers in the game means fields and rivers in our real world. So if you're looking for something specific try to go where you think you would find it in real life.
#6 Some Pokemon only come out at night.
Pokemon such as Gastly and Clefairy will only come out mainly during the late night hours, in keeping with their lore.
#5 Some Pokemon can only be found in certain areas of the world.
It might seem obvious with "catch 'em all" as the strap line for the game, but in order to truly "catch 'em all" you'll have to literally travel the world.
#4 Check your ring.
The colour of the ring around the Pokémon will indicate the difficulty of catching it so pay attention to it. If it is green it means it is super easy to catch that Pokemon. If red then it is a huge challenge.
#3 The eggs will only hatch while you are walking.
The eggs will only hatch while you are walking, so if you are tempted to take a car or bus everywhere, think again. Not only will you reduce your carbon footprint, but more importantly, your eggs will hatch faster if you walk it instead.
#2 How to capture a Pokemon with high CP.
Once you're about to throw a Poké Ball, press it and hold it and you should see a coloured ring around the Pokémon that will begin to shrink. Once it's at its smallest, your chance of capturing a high CP is highest.
#1 Pokemon with ??? as combat points.
It means that Pokemon will not recognize you as a trainer, and it will give it a high chance escape. You should definitely use items if you have them.
