Pokemon Go was at peak popularity in 2016, and everyone was playing it. The game promised to give everyone a chance to ”catch them all,” and all you had to do was wander around town or your neighborhood.
Since the last two years, the developer Niantic has brought in a lot of new content and new features to the game. It doesn’t matter if you are playing the game the first time, or you already have played, because we are going to tell you about the best tips and tricks for catching them all.
How to find the best Pokemon
The core of the game is to encourage players to get up on their feet and venture around the world, which is pretty much the story of Pokemon. The game spreads around different types of Pokemon, based on where you live and real-life location. Usually, grass and normal types of Pokemon will appear around town. If you’re near water, then usually a water type Pokemon, however, if you’re at night than chances are you will encounter psychic Pokemon. There is always the off chance that some type of Pokemon will appear some place not originated with the type, for an example, a water-based Pokemon can appear somewhere where there is no water.
The developers used parks as nesting grounds for specific types of Pokemon, meaning they will appear more frequently on those locations. Nests rotate over time, meaning another Pokemon will nest there for some time, and you never know when a Zubat nest might turn into a Pikachu nest.
We’ve covered now the basics of the game, it’s time to learn about how to find Pokemon.
Before we list all the tips and tricks, it’s important to know that you can always use Pokemon Go promo codes for all sort of items, coins, and Pokemon, that can boost you a little further in the race.
- Did you know that when a Pokemon appears, as long as it’s on your screen, you can tap on it and begin the catching process, no matter how far away you are from the Pokemon.
- If you’ve failed to catch a stronger level Pokemon, don’t give up because there is still a chance for it to reappear.
- Some of the consumables the game offers you every time you level up are Incense and Lure modules. Upon using the Incense module, more Pokemon will be attracted to you. This increases the chances of finding a rare Pokemon, and it also increases your chances of catching a Pokemon. Lure modules work like Incense, in a sense that it increases your chances of spotting and catching a Pokemon, but instead of you, it’s applied to Poke stops. This module lasts for 30 minutes, and it benefits all players in that area. They appear like pink confetti on the map, and you will usually see a lot of players in that area catching Pokemon. Lure and Incense can be bought from the Pokemon shop on your app.
- Keep an eye out for monthly community days and other events by Niantic. You can always find these events in your Pokemon Go app. These events usually focus on a specific Pokemon from a specific region, and it serves as a great tool for spotting rarer Pokemon. Playing these events will give you a head start in the race to catch them all.
