Pokémon Go is a location-based game which is very addictive and is available on both Android and iOS. The game allows the users to use Google Maps and turn places into Poké Stops where you can collect Poké Balls. It has a simple gameplay, but it is full of challenges and hidden objects that make it exciting. Many players find it difficult to find Pokémon, and they are eager to learn about some tips and tricks to excel in the game. We have gathered some useful Pokémon Go tips and tricks so that it is easier for you to succeed in the game.
Pick Your Pokémon
Picking Pokémon also affects your gameplay which is ignored by most of the players. When you start the game, you have to choose a Pokémon and start catching other Pokémon by walking. You will face three classic starter Pokémon, among which you will have to choose one. However, if you want Pikachu as your starter, you have to ignore these Pokémon and walk away. Your phone will vibrate, and you will come across those three Pokémon again. You have to ignore them again until you find Pikachu. Then, you can catch it and use it as your starter Pokémon.
Learn How to Capture Pokémon
Capturing Pokémon in this game is an art. To capture a Pokémon efficiently, use the ‘Capture’ mode where your camera will switch to the AR mode. Focus the camera on the Pokémon you want to catch and notice the ring color and size to capture. If the ring size is smaller, you will be able to easily capture it. Similarly, the colors of the ring will tell you the level of difficulty to catch a Pokémon where red is tough, yellow is moderate, and green is easy.
Know About the Sightings
Pokémon Go allows the user to catch Pokémon in different vicinities. You can find Poké Stops where different Pokémon hang out, while Pokémon can also be hiding in different places ready to be spawned. When the Pokémon tab is showing around two to three Pokémon on the travel screen, tap it, and you will get to see more Pokémon that are hiding around that you aren’t able to see.
Know About the Nests
Pokémon have nests where similar Pokémon spawn regularly. However, not all Pokémon have nests. You can catch some Pokémon by detecting their nests. This is where your friends can also help you. If they have found a Pokémon that you want to catch, go the place where they found it and you will usually find it there again.
Don’t Worry About Getting the Same Pokémon
Even if you catch the same Pokémon again, you don’t have to worry because they are useful too. You can transfer the extra Pokémon which help improve the stats of the best Pokémon and help them evolve. The trick is to transfer the Pokémon to Professor Willow to make the best use of it.
