Pokemon Go has become a sensation is quite a short period of time. You can see Pokemon fans moving in the park or in the streets catching Pokemon on their Pokemon Go app. People are competing to get rare Pokemon and to get more number of Pokemon.
But now you can also become the Pokemon master by acquiring enough number of characters in Pokemon Go and train them enough to go to the battle and win the Pokemon master race. There are some hidden tips and tricks for Pokemon Go and if you got to know them then you will be ahead of everyone in this game.
If you are playing the game, you might see or know the basics of gameplay and terminology down but there are so many tricks and tips out there without which you won’t be able to be the Pokemon master. I have shared some tips and tricks to play with the best Pokemon and how to acquire more and powerful Pokemon. Let’s have a look.
1. Catch Pikachu as a Starter Pokemon
Initially, you will be offered one of the three main starters Pokemon named Pikachu, Charmander and Bulbasaur. When you notice them, don’t trap them or walk towards them. Just walk away from them until your phone vibrates for nearby Pokemon.
2. Catch them all
Whenever you encounter a Pokemon in your neighbor, park, water areas, mountains, temples, capture them in your Pokeball even if they are similar or same breed. This is actually good thing for your Pokemon to evolve with the same kind of Pokemon.
If you want to strengthen your Pokemon up quickly, catching a lot of same Pokemon breed guarantees to provide all the necessary supplies to toughen up you Pokemon for all the gym battles.
3. Best place to find the Pokemon
The best places to find Pokemon is not the road outside but the green lands, parks, gardens, waterways like rivers, lakes, oceans, mountains, temples and more. Keep an eye out for rusting leaves, as you will walk nearer, your smartphone will vibrate when there is Pokemon nearby. Just aim and throw your Pokeball.
Hunting at the right time also increases the chance of encounter. You will find psychic, ghost type Pokemon in the evening or at night. So, go and figure out.
4. While catching Pokemon, turn off AR
Pokemon Go app makes use of Internet or Wi-Fi and GPS setting when you hunt for Pokemon. This can drain your battery too. So, always turn off Augmented Reality (AR) as it actually makes more difficult to catch Pokemon. Keep your smartphone steady and ready for anything and turn AR off as you can always turn it on whenever you find a Pokemon at any particular hilarious location.
5. Use Lucky eggs before evolving Pokemon
Lucky eggs is a level reward that you get, this doubles your personal trainer XP that you collect for 30 minutes. You can use this effectively to grind up your level while catching your Pokemon creatures but the best time to use lucky eggs is when you are evolving a Pokemon.
6. Name your Pokemon
One of the best features provided by Pokemon GO is that you can still name your Pokemon. You can do it as soon as you catch a new Pokemon or go to the Pokemon section from menu and edit your pocket monsters name from there.
7. Master the art of capture
Pokemon Go includes a special capture mode whenever you are about to capture a new Pokemon. Just focus on the camera of your Pokeball before you throw it. If the color changes to green, it means easy, yellow means moderate and red means tough.
8. Each Pokemon has different strength
Each Pokemon comes with different strength so always make sure you are keeping the most powerful version in your pocket. Every Pokemon has CP score and don’t forget to trade in the ones with the lower Cp score otherwise you will vastly outranked with hit the gym. You can also make use of candies to boost your Pokemon CP score.
9. Pick your Pokemon Go team
When you will hit the level 5, you will be asked to pick a team, it includes three options team Instinct, team Valour and team Mystic but once you have chosen there is no turning back. Before joining any team, make sure how competitive your opponent is and also take in consideration of the popular team in your area.
10. Check the footprints
The distance between you and the brand new Poke creature can be seen in terms of footprints that is Poke paw prints, the more accurate. One paw print suggests that Pokemon is very close while two paw prints suggests it is little further away.
