Pokemon GO Game Guide

The Pokemon GO game guide contains all the information required for understanding this complex game. You will find many practical advice concerning all the mechanics of the game – the tracking, catching, training and evolving of the Pokemons, taking control over Gyms, or moving around the game world. Apart from that, this guide contains a list of hints useful for advanced and beginning players. There also are chapters devoted to obtaining items without paying for them, ways of quickly gaining experience and the awards for reaching higher XP levels, as well as descriptions of all the Pokemons available in the game. The elements that can be found on the map are also explained (Pokestop, Gym).

This guide is based on the Android edition of the game.

Pokemon GO is a mobile RPG that supports augmented reality technology, created by Niantic studio in cooperation with The Pokemon Company. The application uses smartphones’ and tablets’ cameras to register the surrounding reality, then include additional, three-dimensional objects on it. The players are searching for Pokemon by following the instructions from our GPS.

The guide to Pokemon GO contains, among others:

  • Practical advice concerning gameplay
  • Description of the mechanics of tracking, catching, training and evolving of the Pokemons
  • Information about Gyms and fights with other Pokemons
  • A list of all available pokemons

Pokemon GO is a mobile RPG featuring the support of augmented reality technology. It has been developed by Niantic studio. The game is employs a free-to-play model with microtranscantions.

Pokemon GO is based on Augmented Reality (AR) technology, which means that the application makes use of smartphones’ and tablets’ cameras do register the surrounding reality, and then the game’s engine includes additional, three-dimensional objects in it. This novelty leads to what the Pokemon series is known for: finding, catching, and training the Pokemon to let them face off against creatures trained by other players. All of this takes place in our world, which is nice change compared to other mobile RPGs. To find the most interesting cases, players must walk a lot while following directions given by their GPS.

Pokemon GO Review � Poor game, but a social phenomenon

Pokemon GO needs a lot of improvements. Many things are altogether missing from the game. But it�s already obvious that it will be one of the greatest successes not only in mobile gaming, but also in the whole video game industry.

Pokemon GO tops US gaming charts; overly fascinated players tend to get themselves in danger

Pokemon GO has quickly become one of the most popular mobile apps, causing Nintendo’s shares to skyrocket. The massive popularity has also got some downsides, as overly fascinated players tend to get themselves in danger.

Since Pokemon GO is much different from regular games from the series of Pokemon, and since probably not all of you have played this game, it’s worth to get familiar with the information below. This chapter contains information that will be useful mostly to beginners, but the advanced players will also find something of interest.

  • General
  • How to gain experience quickly in Pokemon GO?
  • Saving energy and data

General

1. Catch all the pokemons you encounter. Pay no mind to the limited amount of slots (you can enhance it later on) – useless Pokemons can be sent to Professor, which will grant you Candy linked to the given Pokemon. Every pokemon caught means more XP. Pokeballs can be collected easily in Pokestops.

2. Don’t waste stardust for any Pokemons. Stardust is needed to augmenting them (it raises their CP – Combat Power, and health). The best way is to collect a substantial amount of the dust and upgrade a few of the best Pokemons used for fighting as much as possible.

3. Use Stardust on Pokemons that already have high CP. There’s no point using it on Pdgeyu with 10CP, if you’d caught a Pidgeot with 130CP. It’s also good to keep a surplus of the dust in case you catch a rare and powerful Pokemon – you can then quickly upgrade it.

4. CP (Combat Power). It substitutes all the combat stats from a “regular” Pokemon game (such as attack, defense, special attacks, speed, etc.). The higher this value the stronger the Pokemon.

5. Appropriate choice of Pokemons is as important as the CP. If you send your strongest fire Pokemon to face a water opponent, you will most probably loose, even if your CP was higher. Check out your opponent beforehand and respond with an appropriate Pokemon.

6. If you’re living in a very small town or in the country (where there’s less than 2000 players), you will unfortunately not find any challenge. At the current stage the game’s in, you won’t find any Pokestops, let alone the Gyms. If you’re playing just for fun, however, or don’t mind spending some money, you can easily play.

7. Choosing the team (5th XP level) does not influence the game – that’s purely cosmetic. If you have some friends with one team, go with them – you’ll have more control over the Gyms.

8. Don’t try cheats allowing to fake your position on the map, or driving a car around the city. First of all, it will get you a quick ban, second, it kills the whole point of the game, which is going out to the world and interacting with other people.

9. You can buy Pokemons for real money, but also by maintaining control over the Gyms. Every Pokemon in the Gym will grant you 10 Pokepoints every 21 hours real time.

10. Don’t spend your Pokecoin lightly – save them and spend for useful items. Pokeballs can be obtained for free in Pokestops, same as Lucky Egg.

11. If any of you friends are playing, join their team. It will be easier to resolve the matter of using the Lure Module, which can be placed in a Pokestop, resulting in a much greater number of Pokemons in the vicinity. Lure Module can also be used by other players from the same team.

How to gain experience quickly in Pokemon GO?

1. When evolving Pokemons, it’s good to focus on those “weak”, such as Pidgey, Caterpie, Weedle. Each of those requires only 12 Candy to get to the highest form – XP growth will be identical.

2. If you’re planning to evolve Pokemons to get some XP, hold on with that for some time. Accumulate the required amount of Candy first, and then get a Lucky Egg – either in a Pokestop or by buying it for Pokecoin. Activate the item and evolve the all the Pokemons – you will get 1000XP instead of regular 500 for each (boosted by the Lucky Egg). The best way is to accumulate the right number of Pokemons first (those “weak ones” I mentioned – Pidgeys, Caterpies, etc.) and the right amount of Candy. This way allows you to get couple of thousand XP in half an hour!

3. If you’re living in a big city or have access to city center (where are many Pokestops and Gyms), go there (in the real world). Getting from one spot to another and fighting a trainer in the Gym, catching Pokemons, and hatching them from eggs can get you from 2000 to 5000 XP in an hour. And all that while enjoying a walk with your dog on a sunny afternoon.

Saving energy and data

1. Turn off the augmented reality (AR), the camera of the device used for placing the creature in the real world. It is just a visual feature which you don’t need, which quickly becomes boring and which makes it harder to capture Pokemons. It also consumes great amount of energy from the device’s battery.

2. Invest in a Powerbank. These devices are very cheap and even the least expensive models should be enough for charging a smartphone. A better Powerbank with bigger capacity will cost more than a dozen of dollars but you can use it for other things as well (for example for charging digital camera). It’s pointless to play the game without having additional power source – the phone will lose energy in about a hour.

3. Don’t even think about using Google maps in offline mode in order to reduce energy and data consumption of your phone. Pokemon GO doesn’t use Google maps and you will only waste time and space on your phone.

4. Allow your phone to rest from time to time from the game. Pokemon GO increases the temperature of the smartphones and as everyone knows high temperature isn’t good for electric devices. If the phone has temporarily high temperature nothing bad should happen, but if it is hot for a few hours a day then your smartphone can quickly break.

1. The trainer level cap a player can achieve is 40. However, this is time-consuming, as it requires 5,000,000 experience points.

2. The level of Pokemons that you catch on the map may go up to 30. This means that after you reach level 30, you find Pokemons of the same CP as when you are, e.g. at level 35. Of course, you can keep training such Pokemons.

3. Pokemons that hatch from eggs may reach experience level no higher than 20 – the ones that have been hatched by the trainer at level 20 will have their CP similar to that of those hatched by a trainer at a higher level. Of course, you can still train such Pokemons.

4. The higher the experience level of the player’s trainer, the more difficult it becomes to catch Pokemons – they will escape from Pokeballs more often and they will earlier flee from battle.

5. Pokeballs thrown with a spin, as well as the ones thrown with a bonus (Nice Throw, Great Throw, Excellent Throw) increase your chances of catching a Pokemon.

6. Mr. Mime, Kangashkan, Tauros and Farfetch’d are Pokemons exclusive for specific continents – you can catch them in Europe, Australia, North America and Asia, respectively. There has been a rumor that these Pokemons can be hatched from “10 kilometer eggs”, but the chance to do that is unknown (and probably not too high).

7. Each attack of a Pokemon has a base chance of critical hit.

8. Pokemons that launch attacks of their own type (e.g. a Grass Pokemon using a Grass attack) deal 25% ore damage.

9. The Pokemon special attack meter charges by 0.5 seconds per each health point that you manage to damage the enemy creature for. This means that the super-effective attacks (e.g. lightning attack against a water Pokemon) charge the special attack much faster than regular attacks.

10. Pokemons that you fight against in the Hall attack every 1.5 seconds.

Their function is twofold: those are place where you can get different items for free, as well as (after placing there the right module) catch a whole bunch of Pokemons. Below, you’ll find a list explaining both these mechanisms.

  • What are Pokestops and how to find them?
  • Luring Pokemons to Pokestops

What are Pokestops and how to find them?

Pokestops are simply places where you can obtain items, as well as hunt Pokemons (about that – a bit later). They are marked on the map with blue icons – however, they only appear on the map if you’re within the radius of 1-1.5 km away; to be able to interact with it, you need to be at least 150m from it. You of course don’t have to approach the building directly: that’s sort of useful if it’s a court or police HQ.

If your within the right distance (if you’re too far, you will be informed by the game about it) the Pokestop will become active, and it’s icon will change – now, it will remind a disc. Taping on this icon will bring a screen telling you what is this building in reality (church, monument, morgue, etc.), and (most importantly) it will allow you to obtain items.

In order to do so, just slide your finger from left to right (simulating a coin spin) of the object’s picture to set it in motion. The building will be spinning and throwing out items – just tap on them to collect. The number and quality of the items is random – sometimes you won’t get anything nice, other times you will get a loads of cool stuff. After the drawing, the building will be inactive for 5 minutes – its icon will turn purple; when it gets active again, it will become blue.

The items that (currently) can be obtained there are:

  • Pokeballs – used to catch the Pokemons. It’s the most typical award.
  • Potion – used to regenerate Pokemons’ HP.
  • Revive – allows to get your Pokemon back on its feat when it fails while fighting an enemy’s Gym.
  • Razz Berry – allows weakening Pokemons before trying to catch them – it makes catching them easier: a strong Pokemon can run from your Pokeball several times – using the berry decreases the number of times they attempt to get free.
  • Egg – Pokemon’s egg that can be placed in an incubator and, after walking the right distance for this egg (can be 2, 5 or even 10km), the egg will hatch.
  • Lucky Egg – single use item. It allows to double the amount of HP you get for 30 minutes.

Pokestops can be found (usually) in areas full of big buildings: churches, police stations, or big malls. Sometimes these can be monuments, or even small shops. All the Pokestops in the radius of about 2km from your location can be seen on the world map.

Luring Pokemons to Pokestops

Another important, yet expensive, function of the Pokestops is the ability to lure Pokemons near them. Each Pokestop can be equipped with a Lure Module. When you, or some other team member will do it, many Pokemons will approach the Pokestop. The Lure Module is effective for 30mins. Additionally, the item can be used by other players – you can temporarily join somebody or arrange it with your friends.

The biggest disadvantage of this item is the fact that it can only be (at least for now) bought for Pokecoins (premium in-game currency), or obtained for reaching a certain XP level (more on that in the chapter titled “Getting XP”). The main source of the Pokecoins is the store, where they can be bought for real money, but they also can be obtained for free.

It can be done in Gym (more about it in another chapter), which are the counterpart of the leaders’ gyms from the animated series. Here, however, you don’t get badges, and don’t fight leaders, but you can take over a gym. After successfully doing that, you can leave one Pokemon there, which will defend the gym against other teams. Every Pokemon left in the Gym will give you 10 Pokecoin every 21 hours. Not much, but with more gyms, you can get around 50 Pokecoins a day (if you manage to hold the Gyms).

During the tutorial, you can easily reach level 1, maybe 2. But soon, reaching higher levels will become a very time consuming task. The most important thing is to get to level 5 as fast as possible, to be able to use the mechanics of the Gym. Below, you will find advice on getting more levels more quickly in Pokemon GO.

  • Catching Pokemons
  • Getting to Pokestops
  • Fighting other Pokemons in Gyms
  • Evolving the Pokemons
  • Awards for experience levels
  • How to gain experience fast

Catching Pokemons

The most obvious way is to catch Pokemons, and it’s the most certain and generally main source of XP in the game. For each Pokemon you will get 100XP. But there’s more: a Pokemon caught for the first time is worth an additional 500XP (600 total). Remember that a good throw with a Pokeball will give you some XP too – “Nice Throw” gives 10XP, “Great” -50, and “Excellent” – 100. The kind of throw is determined by a Pokemon, so it’s not always possible to get this bonus.

Getting to Pokestops

One of the easiest ways of getting experience at the first few hours of the game, especially if you live in a big city, or at least have access to the main square of one, where there usually is a lot of Pokestops. Every time you get to a Pokestop and “toss a coin” (i.e. slide the finger from left to right on the icon of the building), you will get 50 experience.

It’s not an exorbitant amount of experience, but bear in mind a few things: one – Pokestop can be used every 5 minutes. Two – There might be even 10 Pokestops in your vicinity. Third – along with the experience, you will get many different items, including the Lucky Egg, which will boos the experience you get by 100% for 30 minutes after activation. Hence, you can get couple of thousand of XP just by sauntering from one Pokestop to another

Fighting other Pokemons in Gyms

Available for players with 5 level of experience or higher. Every fight you complete in a Gym will grant you 100 points. This can be combined with visiting Pokestops, and catching Pokemons on the way – it will make sure that you don’t stand before a church with people in it like an idiot, grinding the experience (although there’s nothing stopping you).

Evolving the Pokemons

Apart from fighting, the Pokemons can be used to gain experience for their trainer. Every time a Pokemon evolves to its higher form, the player will get 500XP. While the evolvements aren’t widely available at the beginning of the game, in time you will be able to launch a “chain” of evolutions, getting thousands of XP.

In order to be able to evolve a Pokemon, you need Candies appropriate for a given Pokemon. 3 Candies are awarded for catching a Pokemon, and one more can be obtained for giving a Pokemon to the professor. Hence, it’s a good idea to catch every Pokemon you find, and then send the weaker ones (with lower CP) to the Professor. Remember that every Pokemon has it’s own, unique Candy ascribed to it (for example Charmander Candy for Charmander, and so on).

Awards for experience levels

Getting experience means getting many awards. The first levels give only Pokeballs, but the process soon becomes more profitable – higher levels allow you to save a lot of time (and money, if he doesn’t have the time). Below, you’ll find a table containing the bonuses for each level. Since getting the highest levels requires a lot of time, the table will be updated regularly. For now, we’ve prepared 25 levels.

How to gain experience fast

Since experience (and the level of his trainer player) has a direct effect on the strength of Pokemons that you may have (maximum CP statistics that a creature can achieve goes up alongside the trainer’s level), achieving sufficiently high level is a priority. In several chapters of this guide, you may learn that for virtually any activity that you perform, you receive experience points. However, this chapter focuses on the fastest, and (to the extent possible) free way to gain experience.

This method focuses on evolving your Pokemons. You may already know that each evolution (regardless of whether you are evolving Pidgey into Pigeotto, or Pikachu into Raichu) rewards you with 500 experience points. Although this may not be a dizzying amount, you can double it by using Lucky Egg. You can obtain them as a reward (see the table in this chapter), or buy them at a shop for Pokecoins (this option is for the less patient that do not shirk from spending real cash in F2P games, or for those who have already gathered enough Pokecoins). Each Lucky Egg doubles experience that you receive from any source, for the duration of 30 minutes – instead of 100 points, you receive 200, instead of 500 – 1000 and so on.

Since Lucky Eggs are items that you ill quite rarely come by, it is a good idea to get prepared before you use it – there is not much point in using it, if you will not be able to take advantage of the bonus for the next 30 minutes. With the Lucky Egg active, it is possible to perform as many as 40, or even 60 evolutions – it all depends on the server workload (although this problem is not that severe anymore). Performance of 40 evolutions, for which you receive 1000 EXP (thanks to the Lucky Egg), will provide you with a total of 40.000 EXP, which translates into several additional experience levels.

However, to perform that many evolutions, you require enough Candy and Pokemons. Therefore, it is a good idea to spend several (or more) hours of real time on catching all of the Pokemons that you can. In this case, the “weak” Pokemons are the best, such as Pidgey or Caterpie, because they require the least Candy (12) to evolve. Also, remember that catching each Pokemon provides you with 3 Candy of a given type, and for sending it away to the professor, you receive another Candy. Therefore, catching, and sending away, e.g. 3 will allow you to evolve that Pokemon (and after the evolution itself, you receive another Candy). Other Pokemons can also be used for that, so do not ignore them when you meet them.

After you have collected enough Candy and Pokemons to perform, at least, 30 evolutions, use Lucky Egg and get to work. Activate evolutions of Pokemons, one after another and your EXP will skyrocket. After that, your character should receive several experience levels (probably, this will provide you with another Lucky Egg that you can use in the same way).

Remember that evolutions are not the only way to gain experience. While preparing for the above method, you will also receive lots of experience (and a chance of catching a rare Pokemon). A good thing to do is find a spot, where there are more than one Pokestop within close distance of each other and place Lure Module in them. This way, Pokemons will start flocking your way. Each one of the creatures that you catch provides you with experience, increases the strength of your team and also speeds up the abovementioned process of evolving. As you can see, there is a simple (and completely free of charge) way to gain a lot of experience – you only have to spend some more time and you will soon see the results.

During the game you can obtain Pok�mon eggs by visiting one of the Pokestops. Then the egg can be placed in an Incubator. Once it is done, a distance which you must travel through in real life will be displayed. Once you do it, a Pok�mon will hatch from the egg (the more distance you had to travel, the rarer the Pok�mon). It is a good way for obtaining rare Pok�mons. For each hatching you will receive 200 experience points.

At the beginning of the game you can use only one incubator simultaneously. However, you can buy additional incubators in the shop or you can receive them for reaching specific experience level. Additional incubators can be used only three times. After that they disappear from your inventory.

Below you can find a list of Pok�mons hatching from specific eggs. You must remember that lower level Pok�mons can hatch from higher level eggs (the ones that require longer distance), but it doesn’t work like that in both ways. Bulbasaur can hatch from 5km egg, but Onix won’t hatch from a 2km egg.

PokeGyms are a much different mechanism that those known from other Pokemon games. Here, you can take control over such a Gym, which will mean that the Gym will be controlled by one of the three teams. There are couple of different features of the Gyms, which are described further on in this chapter.

  • How to take a neutral Gym
  • Maintaining control over the Gym
  • Taking a Gym from another team

How to take a neutral Gym

Find the Gym first. The Gyms look like high towers, their color renders the team they belong to (red, blue, yellow, or grey – neutral). Much like the Pokestops, the Gym has to be approached first, before it can be interacted with.

If you manage to find a neutral Gym (grey), you have to defeat it’s whole crew. Repeat this process several times, and the Gym will be available for you to capture. Now, you have to place a Pokemon there, and the Gym will belong to your team. Whether you become the Gym’s leader and how difficult will it be to take over the Gym for your enemies, depends on the CP of that Pokemon.

Maintaining control over the Gym

Conquering the Gym is but a beginning. Now you need to hold it. Every gym has its own prestige level. Every prestige level allows to add another Pokemon to the Gym. Gym level 5 allow to place five protecting Pokemons within it. The prestige can be raised by defending the Gym (failed attempts of the enemies to capture your Gym), and by training Pokemons inside it.

The prestige degrades when the enemy (or a group of them) manages to defeat all the Pokemons inside. Should the level of prestige drop by one point, the “garrison” will lost the Pokemon with the lowest CP. When the prestige drops to 0, the team that had controlled the Gym loses it, and control can be taken over that Gym.

One of the most important factor of maintaining control over the Gym is the fact that every Pokemon inside a Gym produces Pokecoins – the game’s currency. Every Pokemon provides 10 Pokecoins every 21 hours. Having 5 Pokemons in a Gym will give you 50 Pokecoins every 21 hours.

Taking a Gym from another team

As I’ve mentioned above, every Gym has its prestige level, which renders the number of Pokemons that can guard the Gym. If a Gym that interests you belongs to another team, you will be able to attack the “garrison” of Pokemons the Gym contains. Moreover, players from two different teams can attack a Gym belonging to the third team at the same time. However, the Gym can then be controlled by only one of the two teams (should they win the battle).

Fighting for control is about getting the Gym’s prestige down to 0. Every time someone wins with the Pokemons from the Gym – it will lose an amount of prestige (most of the times enough to lose one prestige level). The process has to be repeated enough times as to drop the prestige level to 0, rendering the Gym neutral, and able to be captured.

A simple award system based on medals of three colors is available in Pok�mon. By completing various activities you will receive bronze, silver and gold medals. Obtaining them doesn’t give you any profits, but you can show them to your friends. In order to see all obtained medals and the ones waiting to be unlocked you must open your character window (the button in the bottom right corner of the screen) and then scroll the screen down. There you will find a list of all achievements. Below you can see the table with specific medals and conditions for obtaining them.

One of the most important novelties introduced in Pok�mon GO is the combat system - Fighting other players - General information - Pokemon GO Game Guide

One of the most important novelties introduced in Pok�mon GO is the combat system. It doesn’t work like in other Pok�mon games where it was turn-based and the Pok�mons acted one after another. In this game the battle is played in real time which means that there were some changes.

First thing – the number of available attacks. Instead of four, only two attacks – regular and special one – are available. The first one is usually a simple hit while the second one is related to Pok�mon type (this means that it deals more or less damage depending on with who you’re fighting). Regular attacks are triggered with a single tap of the screen. Special attacks are activated by holding the finger on the screen for the required amount of time.

In addition to attacking, you will have to avoid attacks performed by the enemy. In order to do it you must swing your finger on the screen at the right time. If you succeed, the enemy will miss you. The battle is fought until one of the Pok�mons loses all health points.

During the battle (and before starting it) you should remember about a few things:

  • Before fighting, check what Pok�mon will you face and select correct creature against it. Using a Pok�mon that has advantage over the opponent (Water Pok�mon against fire one, fire against ice and so on) will be much easier – your creature will deal much more damage and receive less from the enemy.
  • Remember that Pok�mon type isn’t always the same as the type of the attack he will use. It might happen that a flying Pok�mon will use fire, ice or electric attack. It’s the type of attack (not the type of the Pok�mon) that determines the number of damage dealt.
  • Keep attention to the health of the Pok�mon – his wounds can be healed only after the duel. During the fight you can’t use potions.

At the beginning of Pok�mon GO each player will play tutorial during which he will have to catch one of three starting Pok�mons - Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbasaur - How to get Pikachu as the starting Pokemon? - Pokemons - Pokemon GO Game Guide

At the beginning of Pok�mon GO each player will play tutorial during which he will have to catch one of three starting Pok�mons – Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbasaur. Fans of the animated series and the ones that years ago played Pok�mon Yellow can also try catching the fourth, hidden starting Pok�mon – Pikachu.

Once you reach the tutorial in which the previously mentioned three starting Pok�mons will appear on the map, don’t fight any of them. Instead of that, go in any direction you want (in the real life) in order to move away from the place where the mentioned Pok�mons were. Once you move enough away, the three starting Pok�mons will appear in your area again.

After repeating the process a few times, Pikachu will appear among the three. Now you must only start the fight with him and catch him. The selection of starting Pok�mon isn’t actually important – all 4 starters can be obtained in regular way (however, they are rather rare) and the differences between Pok�mons in Pok�mon GO are limited to their type and CP. You won’t feel much difference no matter if you play as Pikachu or as Charmander.

Important – if you want to use this method, you will have to start playing the game from the beginning since you must return to the starting Pok�mon selection screen. If you already played the game for a few hours, you can ignore this method – sooner or later you will get Pikachu, and as mentioned before, it isn’t very important what type of Pok�mon you have.

The majority of the game focuses on catching Pok�mons. In Pok�mon GO player can catch each Pok�mon type without being forced to trade them with other players or hack the console. The process is split into two phases – Pok�mon tracking and Pok�mon catching.

  • Tracking Pok�mons on your own
  • Tracking Pok�mons by using items
  • Catching Pok�mons

Tracking Pok�mons on your own

Pok�mons can be tracked on your own or you can use one of two items (more about it further in the guide). If you don’t want to use any items, you must learn to use the menu available in the bottom right corner. After clicking the small icon a screen will be displayed. On it you will find silhouettes of up to 9 Pok�mons (there might be less of them).

Under the photo of each Pok�mon you will find icons similar to hands. These icons can have 3 forms:

  • 3 hands – it means that the Pok�mon is far from you and that you must walk for a long time to get it.
  • 2 hands – Pok�mon is much closer to your current location.
  • 1 hand – Pok�mon is very close to your current location. Very frequently Pok�mons with one hand under their portrait are simply visible on your map.

You must remember that the number of hands changes in real time. If, for example, you were tracking a Pok�mon and the number of hands under its portrait changed from 2 to 3, it means that you are traveling in wrong direction – you must simply turn around and observe the state of the pawns. However, if the number dropped, for example, from 3 to 2, it means that you are going in correct direction and soon you will see the Pok�mon.

When using this mechanism you should remember about following things:

  • There might be much more Pok�mons in your area than 9. Keep monitoring the screen in the right bottom corner, a much more valuable creature than the one you are currently hunting can appear there.
  • Position of Pok�mons in the window isn’t random. The one in the upper left corner is closest to your current location. The one in the right bottom corner is the most far away one.
  • While searching for Pok�mons you should keep constantly having the window with Pok�mons available in the area open. You should keep monitoring all changes. If the number of hands under a few of them drops from 3 to 2, it means that soon you can find a group of Pok�mons and there will be even a few of them to catch.

Tracking Pok�mons by using items

In this case its hard to call it tracking (since the Pok�mons will be going towards you on their own), but one can call it like that - How to find and catch Pokemons in Pokemon GO? - Pokemons - Pokemon GO Game Guide

In this case it’s hard to call it tracking (since the Pok�mons will be going towards you on their own), but one can call it like that. Two items in the game allow you to find the Pok�mons easier, with no action needed from you. These items are Incense and Lure Module.

Incense is bait which is placed on your trainer. It works for 30 minutes. During this time a pink aura will appear around you and much more Pok�mons will appear in your area. You must remember about a few things:

  • Pok�mons will appear more or less every 5 minutes – one Incense will allow you to catch about 6 random Pok�mons.
  • It doesn’t matter whether you use this item in a very crowded area or in the garden of your own house – the effect will be equally effective.
  • There is no sense in running around the city after using this item – you won’t lure any additional Pok�mons. Incense works in such way that the Pok�mon simply appears next to your character – the creatures won’t be marching through the streets.

The second item you can use is Lure Module. The item (similarly as Incense which was described above) is available for buying in in-game shop (for Pokecoins). You will also receive a few Lure Modules when reaching new experience levels. Lure Module is bait used on Pokestops. Only one Lure Module can be used on each such object and the effect always lasts for 30 minutes. There will be much more Pok�mons around such Pokestop, but the item has some limitations:

  • Other players can also use the Lure Module (Incense works only on the player that used the item). All players in the area will see the changed icon of the Pokestop on the map. It will symbolize the Lure Module.
  • Only players from same team can use the Lure Module. If, for example, the player from yellow team uses the item, only other players from yellow team can gain profits from it and catch more Pok�mons in that area.

Catching Pok�mons

Once the process of tracking Pok�mons is over, it is time for the most important part – catching the creatures. People that know the series of games available on Nintendo consoles will be greatly disappointed – there is no fighting the encountered creatures, one doesn’t have to weaken them before trying to catch them. All that needs to be done is throw the Pokeballs at them until they are captured.

On one hand, the process is simple (there are no additional features – except for the possibility to use Razz Berry about which more will be told in a moment), and on the other, it can be very frustrating since the Pokeball throwing mechanism requires the player to correctly swing the finger through the screen. The trajectory of the Pokeball is based on the movement of the finger on the screen – if the swing is longer, then the Pokeball will fall further. If the movement is tweaked, the Pokeball will be tweaked as well.

The trouble starts when the Pok�mon you are trying to catch is small or/and he is jumping through the whole screen – hitting such target can take much time, frustrate and end in you losing even 30 Pokeballs. What makes things even more difficult is the fact that many Pok�mons are “stronger” than others and require even a few hits to be captured – he will fly back from the ball after you hit him. The previously mentioned Razz Berry can be helpful in such cases – it weakens a Pok�mon, allowing you to capture him after less hits (for example, you can reduce the number of required hits from 3 to 1).

A few things are related to Pok�mon catching:

  • In order to throw the Pokeball you must click it with your finger, move it through the screen and release the finger at right time – the Pokeball will move through the same track as the finger on the screen.
  • After clicking the Pokeball, a ring will appear around the touched area. It can have two colors – green, which means that the Pok�mon is easy to capture (usually one Pokeball), and red, which means that it is harder to catch (it might, for example, require 3 Pokeball hits).
  • The above mentioned ring can have various size. The size will changed based on how long you are holding the Pokeball before you decide to throw it. The smaller the ring, the greater chance for catching the creature (useful when capturing stronger Pok�mons).

What’s also important is how you hit the Pok�mon with the Pokeball. For the capturing process to start, the Pokeball must hit the target directly, without touching the ground. It cannot, for example, bounce three times from the ground and reach the creature after that – this won’t allow you to catch him. How you throw the ball will also impact how much experience you will receive. It goes as follows:

  • Nice Throw – 10 additional experience points.
  • Curve ball – 10 additional experience points. In order to curve the ball you must hold the Pokeball, create a few small circles on the screen and then throw the ball at the creature.
  • Great Throw – 50 additional experience points. In order to perform a Great Throw you must hold the finger on the Pokeball until the circle on the Pok�mon becomes smaller by hand and then hit the center of the target.
  • Excellent Throw – 100 additional experience points. Performing an excellent throw is similar to performing great throw, except that the circle must be as small as possible.

Despite the fact that the experience bonuses are small, they can make a difference.

Pok�mon GO lacks advanced Pok�mon statistics – there is no speed, defense, regular and special attack and so on. Instead, there is only one value, CP (Combat Power) – the higher it is, the stronger the Pok�mon is. Similarly as in the animated series and the games, it is possible to evolve the Pok�mon to higher form. Below you can read about both processes.

  • Increasing the CP value of a Pok�mon
  • Evolution of Pok�mons

Increasing the CP value of a Pok�mon

Each Pok�mon is characterized by CP (Combat Power) value. This value determines the overall strength of a Pok�mon in combat – if two same Pok�mons face each other on the battleground, then the one with higher CP value will win. It is a simple mechanism which partially limits the development possibilities of a Pok�mon and which gives advantage to players who are playing the game longer than others.

Each Pok�mon you capture starts with a random CP value and has an upper CP limit which he can reach. The maximum CP value is shown on the Pok�mon presentation screen – above his portrait you can see an indicator which will be partially filled depending on CP of your Pok�mon. If Pok�mon’s maximum CP is 500 and your monster has 200 CP, then the bar will be filled in 40%. The maximum CP of each Pok�mon depends on the level of your character. Once the Pok�mon reaches the maximum value of the indicator and you will obtain a new level, the upper CP limit will increase and your Pok�mon will be once more able to be strengthened.

In order to increase Pok�mon’s CP you must use the POWER UP option available on Pok�mon screen. Two things are required for it: correct Candy and the required number of Stardust. Candy related to a Pok�mon (Charmander Candy, Pikachu Candy and so on) can be obtained when catching a Pok�mon (1 piece) and when sending a creature to professor (also 1 piece). Stardust is mostly obtained by catching Pok�mons – each captured creature will give you 100 pieces of the resource.

After clicking the POWER UP button CP of a creature will increase by a few percent and his health by a few points. Every a few upgrades (after reaching certain high level of CP) the Candy cost will increase by 1. Once CP value of a Pok�mon reaches the maximum (the previously mentioned bar will be filled), you won’t be able to strengthen it anymore. Once you gain higher level, the meter will drop to ~90% and you will be able to strengthen the creature more.

Remember not to strengthen Pok�mons with very low CP. It is better to wait (and use resources to upgrade a different Pok�mon) until you catch a stronger version of the creature. This will allow you to save many Candies and Stardust.

Evolution of Pok�mons

Pok�mon evolution is a simple process during which the creature reaches “higher form” – Pikachu transforms into Raichu, Charmander into Charmeleon (and then into Charizard) and so on. Higher Pok�mon evolutions doesn’t change only the looks – it also (and most of all) means higher CP level. After the evolution the CP value can be even multiplied a few times.

In order to evolve a Pok�mon you must open the window with the creature (the one where you strengthened it) and select the Evolve option. In order to complete the process you will need to have enough Candy related to the Pok�mon (similarly as above – Charmander Candy, Pikachu Candy etc). The higher the evolution and the more dramatic the change (like Magicarp into Gyardos), the more Candy will be needed.

You should remember that Pok�mons keep their current percentage of maximum CP value after the evolution. If, for example, Pikachu had 300CP and his meter was filled in 80%, then after his evolution (as Raichu) his CP can be multiplied even a few times and his CP meter will remain filled in 80%. This can allow you to save great number of Stardust – strengthening higher forms of Pok�mons is much more expensive than their lower version.

Pok�mon GO has the same rules as other Pok�mon games released on Nintendo handheld consoles. Each Pok�mon has its own type (fire, water, flying and so on) thanks to which he is effective against some Pok�mons and is vulnerable to other ones.

Above you will find a table with all Pok�mon types (some of them might still not be available in the game) and information about from which Pok�mon types they receive less damage and from which ones they receive more damage. It also contains information about to whom they deal more and to whom they deal less damage.

Important – remember that the Pok�mon type alone matters only for the creature that is attacked (“the defender”). In case of the aggressor the attack type is more important than the Pok�mon type. There are Pok�mons in the game which, for example, are flying type, but have fire, ice or electric attacks – these attacks will determine how much damage the enemy will receive.

Below you can find a list of strongest Pokemons ordered by three statistics: attack, defense and stamina. Additionally, you will find here Pokemons with highest sum of all three statistics. Pokemons from the list below should be upgraded and used in the battle for the Gym.

  • Strongest Pokemons – Attack, Defense, Stamina
  • Strongest Pokemons – Attack

The frequency of appearance of a type of Pokemons differs depending on place in which you currently are. Because of that it is impossible to precisely determine the rarity of Pokemons. In one area Drowzee can be one of the most popular Pokemons while in other area it might be the rarest Pokemon. Because of that below you can only find Pokemons which are very rare in most places or which have special appearance location. It might happen that in area near your house a very rare Pokemon will appear very frequently. The below list consist only of basic versions of Pokemons, not their evolutions.

  • Not popular Pokemons
  • Rare Pokemons
  • Very rare Pokemons
  • Rarest Pokemons
  • Pokemons unique for specific area
  • Secret or unavailable Pokemons

People familiar with other Pokemon games and with the animated series know that Eevee has a few different evolutions. Three of them are available in Pokemon GO – Jolteon, Vaporeon and Flareon. Normally in order to obtain one of the evolutions you must count on luck – causing the transformation will end in one of three possible versions. However, there is a way to change that.

In order to receive a specific version you are interested in, you must change the name of your creature (before starting the evolution) to one of three unique ones. Then the evolution will have a specific effect. In order to change the name of the Pokemon you must select it from the list of available Pokemons, then press the pencil icon located on the right from the name of the creature. The names are as follows:

  • Sparky – Eevee will evolve into Jolteon
  • Rainer – Eevee will evolve into Vaporeon
  • Pyro – Eevee will evolve into Flareon

After the evolution you can change the name of the Pokemon to any you want.

Important – the game probably has a bug due to which the method cannot be used two times in a row. If you, for example, try evolving Eevee named Rainer twice, during the first time you will receive Vaporeon but during the second attempt you will receive a random creature from 3 available evolutions. Some players also claim that it can be bypassed by not making two same evolutions in a row – for example first evolving Eevee named Sparky and then Rainer. However, for now these claims aren’t confirmed.

Important – out of three available evolutions, for now Vaporeon seems to be the best choice due to large number of health points and unmatched damage.
