What you need to do in Pokemon Go
You will find Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokémon that have been discovered on planet Earth.
You need to discover and capture the Pokémon all around you. You’ll join one of three teams and battle for the prestige and ownership of Gyms with your Pokémon at your side.
So that means Pokémon are out there, and you need to find them. As you walk around a neighborhood, your smartphone will vibrate when there’s a Pokémon nearby. Take aim and throw a Poké Ball. You need to be attentive or might lose it
Certain Pokémon appear near their native environment. You can look for Water-type Pokémon by lakes and oceans. Visit PokéStops, found at interesting places like museums, art installations, historical markers, and monuments, to stock up on Poké Balls and helpful items.
PokéStops are important or iconic places around your area: They may be special benches with dedication plaques, permanent art installations, or historic landmarks. They’ll never be something as mundane as a stop sign, nor will they be in a location that is not accessible to the public — like something inside a private building, or beyond a locked gate.
PokéStops are an easy way to collect items, experience, and Poké Eggs . They’re indicated on your map by tall poles with blue cube atop them: You can tap one even if you’re not in range to find out which landmark they’re associated with, but you won’t be able to check in until you’re close to the PokéStop.
When a PokéStop is within range, the blue cube will transform into a spinning disc, which you can tap on to visit. Inside, you’ll see the PokéStop symbol with a disc in the middle that displays the location’s photo; you may also get some historical information about the monument, if you’re into that sort of thing.
Swipe the disc to spin it, and you’ll be rewarded with a variety of items. Items can include Poké Eggs, Poké Balls, healing potions, and more. As you increase in levels, you unlock new items to collect.
After you visit a PokéStop, the blue pole will change to purple, and you’ll be unable to visit for at least 10 minutes.
Levels you need to attain
There are levels in this app for you to attain. As you level up, you’ll be able to catch more-powerful Pokémon to complete your Pokédex. You can add to your collection by hatching Pokémon Eggs based on the distances you walk. Help your Pokémon evolve by catching many of the same kind.
As your Charmander evolves to Charmeleon and then Charizard, you can battle together to defeat a Gym and assign your Pokémon to defend it against all comers.
To have the adventure get set go you need to start walking and getting ready to explore.
You need Poké Balls to capture Pokémon, Incense to lure them, and potions and revives to heal them after Gym battles.
Like many games of this era, you can purchase many of these items with real-world currency as transformed into PokéCoins. You can stock up on most items just by visiting PokéStops. You never know what you’re going to come across at a PokéStop, but it’s almost always helpful. Each item has a specific use in the game; most fall into either the “capture” or “recovery” category, helping you capture new Pokémon or aiding your current Pokémon in healing after Gym battles.
You can also find incense, which lures Pokémon to you; Lucky Eggs, which grant you double experience for 30 minutes; Lure Patches, which draw Pokémon to a PokéStop; Razz Berries, which make it easier to catch more of the same species of Pokémon; and Poké Eggs, which can hatch into new Pokémon.
There are in app purchases in this game. So if you need more coins to play you will find certain packs and their costs like 100 poke coins can cost you $1.49 and maximum 14,500 poke coins can cost you $159.9
