Hints & Secrets
Various Gameplay Tips
- Tip 1: Don't worry about weaker pokemon, however watch on the ring that appears when you preparing to toss a pokeball. Tap and hold, and you should see the ring begin to get smaller sized. Wait up until it is almost to vanish totally, then release to toss. If you have great timing, you should be able to capture pokemon with relative ease. Often, the ring will be red or orange, representing that the pokemon will argue if you try to catch it. You will have to use berries to relieve the pokemon making them all set for capture!
- Tip 2: The very best way to discover new pokemon is to travel to locations you have actually not looked yet, and attempt all over, not just the most apparent popular locations. Make certain to take note of your environments! Be sure to bring a portable battery charger to keep your phone healthy and good if you are in it for the long run.
- Tip 3: To get items such as pokeballs, you will have to drop in a Pokestop. Pokestops are generally positioned right on top of a landmark of some sort-- a monolith, a park, a statue, and so on. They appear worldwide of pokemon as a blue cube. You can tap it on the map to open up its details once you are within range of the pokestop. Upon doing so you will be rewarded with some items, primarily pokeballs. These are important, so get to strolling! Think about taking a journey around to a neighboring park or shopping center if you live in rather of a remote area. At the exact same time, you may even face new pokemon you have actually not seen prior to. Experience waits for!
- Tip 4: You have actually most likely observed by now that the close-by pokemon radar has footprints beneath each pokemon in the list. There can be one footprint, 2, or 3. As a basic guideline, the more footprints there are, the further you are from the pokemon in concern. Start moving around and keep an eye on your map for rustling turf if you are on the hunt. If you see them reducing, keep a close eye on the footprints and see. You are getting warmer if they are!
- Tip 5: You most likely have no problems at all recognizing all of the pokemon just from the shapes alone if you are a veteran Pokémon trainer. If your memory is foggy or if you are just new to the game, then we suggest checking out Pokedream's list of the initial 151 pokemon! This list consists of sprites from the GBA games, so they will be close to the shapes displayed in Pokémon GO. You can refer to the sprites to know which are around you if you know exactly what kind of pokemon you desire.
- Tip 6: If they are strong enough, particular types of pokemon can evolve into new pokemon. To do this, you will have to capture duplicates. If you have a Bulbasaur and capture another one, you can send your additional to Professor Willow. In return, you will get a kind of sweet unique to that pokemon, which are required for it to evolve.
- Tip 7: There is something to bear in mind prior to you dispatch recorded pokemon. CP (Combat Power) is the score of a pokemon's strength. The greater it is, the much better it will perform in battle. When moving pokemon to Professor Willow, remember of its CP. Keep the pokemon that have greater CP!
- Tip 8: If you open the store, you can tap a blue button at the leading. You can secure free pokeballs and incense from this, and you can do it once a day. Once every day so that you equip up on items, be sure to examine in at least!
Catch More Pokemon Tips
- Tip 1: Just wait! For some factor, the game will generate a wild pokemon near you if you are just patient enough. Just leave your app running near you and inspect it from time to time-- you will, eventually, be rewarded with a brand name new pokemon! This appears to take place at regular period, no matter exactly what the "close-by" meter informs you-- so absolutely keep inspecting your app even if you are fixed in an area that appears to have no pokemon.
- Tip 2: The kind of pokemon you get is typically affected by your area. Simply puts, if you are near a water fountain, at the beach or near water in basic (your restroom sink does not count!) your possibilities of finding water pokemon boost. If it's night, the possibilities of discovering nighttime pokemon boost-- so ensure that you do not restrict your play time to a particular kind of day if you wish to capture em all.
- Tip 3: I'll start with something that cannot be most likely used to your case or most cases, however it needs to be stated: it's a smart idea to attempt and start playing the game far from a place you'll invest most time in (like your home or work) in order to increase your possibilities of discovering more Pokemon-- obviously, the additional away you obtain from your beginning place, the more possibilities you have at discovering some. , if you currently began the game-- check out on for other pointers.
- Tip 4: The most convenient locations to discover a lots of Pokestops and pokemon are the basic locations of interest in your city or the area. Believe museums, art galleries, zoos, landmarks or parks. It was like Heaven for Pokemon collectors-- while others reported that check outs to the zoo were even much better when I went to my regional park! Believe about the locations of interest in your city and pay them a go to.
- Tip 5: Eggs can be an excellent source of pokemon. Just ensure you place the Egg in the Incubator and stroll the needed range. Eggs can just be discovered (or a minimum of that was my case up until now) in Pokestops. Check out listed below about Pokestop revitalizes to equip up on your eggs.
- Tip 6: Pokestops revitalize after a provided set of minutes. If you check out a Pokestop and you can invest a number of minutes around, stroll away and return after a brief while-- most likely it will be revitalized and you can visit it once again.
- Tip 7: In order to enhance your possibilities of recording a Pokemon (I would constantly do this when handling a rare one), use Berries. Use a minimum of one berry prior to tossing your ball in order to enhance your possibilities. Do not use the berries for the rare ones, as you will hardly ever miss out on-- however for the rare ones, it's much better to be safe.
- Tip 8: When attempting to record pokemons,-- You can turn off Augmented Reality. This also appears making recording them a lot much easier, so much better opportunities to you. Plus, if you remain in a truly congested place, you will not have all people taking a look at you as if you were a lunatic.
- Tip 1: Pokemon Go gym are marked on the map as large colored towers and it's difficult to miss them as they truly stick out. In order to be able to access the Gym feature in the game, you require to be at least level 5.
- Tip 2: Once you get to that level, you need to select your team: Blue, Red or Yellow and obviously the option you make does not affect the gameplay in any way other than for that you belong to that specific team and you can combat versus teams of the other colors.
- Tip 3: You can communicate with it as you do with Pokestops when you get close to a Gym. You can inspect them out even if you are far from them, however you need to be close in order to in fact use them. You can train your Trainer there or place one of your Pokemon to protect the gym if they're owned by the very same team color. You can just place one Pokemon per player per Gym, so if you wish to make certain that a person is actually well secured, make certain to bring your pals there too and leave the Pokemon in. Have in mind that you will not have access to the pokemon at the gym while it's safeguarding, however it will be returned to you if it is beat by another player.
- Tip 4: It is a smart idea to have as lots of Pokemon protecting Gyms as possible since every 20 hours you are rewarded Pokecoins and Stardust based upon the variety of Gyms you are safeguarding. It's a great concept to do a "Gym run" in the area prior to gathering your bonus in order to optimize gains.
- Tip 5: In order to start assaulting a gym, all you need to do is to in fact go near it and tap it. You will get the option to pick up to 6 of your own Pokemon which will assault the protectors of the offered health club. Want that the Gym menu shows you the WEAKEST pokemon protecting it, so anticipate battles to obtain harder. You can get a clear concept of who's protecting the health club by swiping to the right-- this will reveal you all protectors one by one.
- Tip 6: Tap Fast... This normally works much better than aiming to evade (which does not work well today due to the fact that of the lag, however may get repaired). Tapping rapidly generally offers you the benefit
- Tip 7: Once your blue bar under the Pokemon's health fills,-- Tap and hold to let loose the special attack. It's generally a great idea to wait and release the special attack on a fresh pokemon, not one with diminished health, however if you're refraining from doing well either it's much better to just use it whenever to obtain the ensured high damage hit
- Tip 8: The battles follow rock-paper-scissors mechanics, so it's extremely important to see exactly what kinds of Pokemon are protecting the gym so you can select the very best ones to eliminate them. Select the pokemons with the greatest CP as they are much better in battle, certainly.
- Tip 9: Drain the Prestige of a Gym in order to take control of it. Once the status strikes zero (it may need numerous wins in your corner), it rejects the protecting team and turns grey/white. When you can assert it and end up being that health club's leader, that's. You are not ensured to continue to be leader: if another team member brings a pokemon with much better CP value, they will end up being the Gym's leaders. Right now, being the Gym Leader has no result on the gameplay.
Pikachu as a starter
Decline to recruit the three starters that are in the immediate vicinity when first starting. Keep doing this until an option appears to recruit Pikachu appears.
When Starting Pokemon Go. you can get a Pikachu as your Starter. Just dont pick pokemon and move away until they disappear. they'll pop up again for a 2nd time. Again move away until they disappear, They'll then pop up a 3rd time. Once again move away so they can disappear. this time on the 4th time Pikachu SHOULD pop up with them Giving you, your Pikachu Starter.

Alternate revive method
Wanna revive a pokemon, but dont have, or dont wanna use a revive? Simply level up the pokemon. A level up gives a pokemon 2 more max hp, so the fainted pokemon will now have 2 hp.
Load up Poke Balls, Incense, Lucky Eggs, etc..
- Tip 1: The most standard way to obtain these, is to obtain free Pokécoins and use them to purchase the different items. Each item, depending upon rarity, costs a various amount. The only items that you can not purchase off of the list are Master Balls and Great Balls, a minimum of at the start of the game. You can get all of these items without coins.
- Tip 2: To obtain Poké Balls, Great Balls, Master Balls, Incense, Lucky Eggs, Lure Modules and Egg Incubators without needing to invest anything, you have to discover a Pokéstop. To obtain to a Pokéstop, you can stroll, bike, jog, drive (just do not use the phone while driving), whatever you wish to do. You have to be right beside a Pokéstop in order to use it.
- Tip 3: Go to the Pokéstop and tap it, then spin the coin. Presuming you're not getting a "too far" alert, spin it and you will get items. Discover another Pokéstop and do the same. Return to the very same Pokéstop after a day approximately and you will have the ability to spin it once again, or just discover more of them.
- Tip 4: Exactly what does each item do? Poké Balls, Great Balls, and Master Balls are all used to capture Pokémon-- some are just more efficient than others. A Pokémon will be described in green, red or yellow depending upon how difficult they are to capture at the level that you are at now. Master Balls can capture them all extremely quickly, while Poké Balls are the least reliable. Great Balls are someplace between.
- Tip 5: Incense tempts Pokémon to your present area. Draw Modules lure Pokémon to a particular Pokéstop for half an hour. Fortunate Eggs double your experience points for half an hour. Egg Incubators can hatch approximately 3 eggs prior to they break. All these items are consumable, earnable and renewable.
Catching and finding Pokemons
- Action to discovering some couple of various Pokémon is to go away from where you began the game. The further you are away, the most likely you are to discover Pokémon, so if possible, start the game when you are far from your home, your work, or any place. You might discover more Pokémon that way.
- Think a location that you are at, since the game will show various components of Pokémon depending upon where. You will discover more water types if you are near the water. You will discover more plant types if you are near the lawn. You might discover more fire types or rock types if you are near a fire or in a desert.
- There are different types of population. You'll discover various Pokémon in the city than in the country, or in the areas than you will in the city, and Pokémon will vary from city to city in basic. You can discover various sort of Pokémon in various areas. Attempt stores, shopping centers, skyscrapers, etc..
- Play the game at various times of day. In the evening, Pokémon will come out that are known to be more of the nighttime type, while the day ones sleep. Throughout the day, the nocturnals will be a sleep while the typical daytime Pokémon will be out and about, strolling around.
- Look at various places to use your Incense and your Lure Modules. Both of them work in a different way, however every one works for half an hour and will draw Pokémon to either your area or to a Pokéspot depending upon which item you use. Make certain that you have half an hour to reserve initially so that you can devote your time to capturing these Pokémon.
- At busy locations, opportunities are most likely that if there is a close-by Pokéstop, somebody will have dropped a lure, since people want to drop lures where there is a crowd. When you come up to a congested area, specifically downtown on the weekend, a church service or something, examine the map for a place that currently has actually had a lure dropped.
- Throughout the next upgrade, Niantic has strategies to include Pokémon trading to the game. Use trading to obtain rid of something that you can afford to get rid of, which another player may not have yet however desires, in exchange for among their players. Use the "lure in a crowded place" method to draw more Pokémon GO players to a crowded area, so that you can aim to trade with them.
- Keep a substantial variety of Great Balls, Ultra Balls and Master Balls with you. You are going to require them as you get experience levels since the greater your level, the more rare, epic and famous Pokémon you'll wind up triggering to appear.
- When you encounter a Pokémon that is hard to capture, drop a Razz Berry to obtain them to eat it, which will make them a bit simpler to capture. This will help if you get stuck dealing with a yellow, orange, or specifically a red Pokémon and all you have are Poké balls, without any great balls, master balls or ultra balls to use on them.
- Make sure making room for more Pokémon. No one wishes to keep 50 Pidgeys or Rattatas, so move them to Professor Elm when you do not require them any longer. Once you do that, not just will you make space for some new (and rarer) ones to come around, , but you will earn that Pokémon's candy as well. That candy contributes to evolutions, of course, which expands both your Pokédex and your battle capability.
- Examine the "Nearby" menu and have a look at the steps beside the Pokémon. 3 steps suggests that the Pokémon is close, however not too close. 2 steps is better. One step is extremely close. Double tap the Pokémon in order to summon it if they appear with no steps.
Power Up and Evolve your Pokemon (CP)
- Pokémon Go might not be a Pokémon game in the standard sense, however it is still vital to have a strong team of Pokémon at hand. To do this, you need to increase their CP, or battle points. Power up your Pokémon so that you can go to gyms, battle battles, and win, however you will have to power up and evolve your Pokémon initially using Stardust and Candy. Keep reading to learn ways to have an effective Pokémon team in Pokémon GO!
- To power up a Pokémon, you require Stardust. Stardust is not Pokémon-specific, implying that there is just one kind of Stardust, and it is made whenever you capture a Pokémon. You can power up a Pokémon which levels them up and increases their battle points when you have enough Stardust. Fight points enter into play in the gyms environment, as battles can typically be chosen simply by who has more battle points. This is why it's essential to not just capture new Pokémon, however to capture duplicate Pokémon. Each Pokémon that you capture, whether it be a new one or a duplicate, will offer you Stardust. In addition, they will provide you an item that is just as essential-- perhaps even moreso, which is Candy.
- Candy is needed in order to evolve your Pokémon. You require a lot more candy for evolution than you require stardust for power ups. Candy is also Pokémon-specific, implying that you can just earn more candy by capturing duplicates of a particular Pokémon. Keep capturing duplicates till you have exactly what is had to evolve your Pokémon, presuming that they have a evolution chain (some, such as Mew and Mewtwo, do not).
- After you effectively evolve a Pokémon, they will start back at the initial level. The level of CP will normally be higher than it was to start with, however if they had actually been powered up formerly, then it may be lower to start with. You will use the exact same kind of candy as in the past so you can capture the lower evolutions of your Pokémon and use their candy to power up and (if appropriate) evolve it even more.
- Eventually you are going to need to eliminate a few of your Pokémon in order to include more. Go to the Pokémon's profile page, scroll all the way to the transfer button. This moves a Pokémon to the professor completely, implying that you lose them, however you will earn among that Pokémon's sweets rather. Move away unnecessary Pokémon if you require to get some more candy.
- Eventually you are going to need to eliminate a few of your Pokémon in order to include more. Go to the Pokémon's profile page, scroll all the way to the transfer button. This moves a Pokémon to the professor completely, implying that you lose them, however you will earn among that Pokémon's sweets rather. Move away unnecessary Pokémon if you require to get some more candy.
- Some Pokémon take more stardust than others do to power up. A Pokémon will typically take less if it's CP is lower to start with, and while the needed stardust per power-up will ultimately increase as a Pokémon's CP boosts, start with a low-CP Pokémon and turn them into a high-CP Pokémon to invest less stardust in general.
- When you win a gyms battle, you leave your Pokémon at the gyms to protect it, and it remains at the health club till it ultimately gets beaten. At that point it will go back to your party with one HP left. Make certain that you have a lot of high-CP Pokémon trained up so that you can still have an excellent health club party for battles, after leaving Pokémon behind.
- When you are powering up your Pokémon, make sure to take into account not just their CP, however their HP. Having a higher amount of HP indicates that they will have the ability to last longer in gyms battles, due to the fact that they will have the ability to take more hits. Powering and developing up increase their HP just as they increase their CP.
- Although you can increase the CP level of a non-evolved Pokémon to a relatively high amount, it caps out at a far lower level than it provides for developed or rarer Pokémon. At the top of the Pokémon's profile will be a half-circle shaped bar, and it fills as you power up your Pokémon. Your Pokémon has actually reached its complete CP capacity once it's complete.
- Go to the area where you have actually captured it prior to and you'll likely discover more of it once again if you are on a mission to evolve one Pokémon. This holds true primarily if it is a typical Pokemon; if it's a rare one it might appear a bit more arbitrarily, however it will still has a great chance of happening in the exact same area once again.
- Do not gather numerous exact same pokemon, There's no have to get the exact same pokemon when you currently have one. You can use your duplicate pokemons for trading them to prof. willow in exchange of candy. This benefits progressing your pokemons and getting more effective team.
- Keep your pokemon go app open while not walking or playing the game it will increase the time for hatching an egg. The GPS requirement will make you walk to Pokéstops for more Pokéballs.
- Get some free items by defending gyms, if you reached your trainer level to 5 just go to pokemon gyms and start a battle versus other gym trainers.
Wait for Smaller Circles
In order to maximize your chances of catching a Pokemon and avoid wasting your Pokeballs, look at the size and color. The color of the circles indicates how strong they are — green is weak, yellow is medium and red is strong. Waiting for the circles to shrink will increase your chance at stronger Pokemon staying within a Pokeball.
Great, Ultra and Master Balls
- At the start of the game, you will not have any Great Balls, Ultra Balls or Master Balls readily available to you. Not in the shop, not in the game itself, absolutely nothing. The factor is that particular items are locked up until you increase your experience level high adequate to open them up. Prior to particular levels, you'll barely discover Pokémon that are effective adequate to need the 3 higher-tier balls. As you level up you will discover a larger range of Pokemon.
- Level up to the right experience level to discover the much better balls. You will earn a reward of 20 Great Balls once you hit level 12. At level 20, you'll unlock Ultra Balls, and at a still higher (unidentified) level you will unlock Master Balls. It is presently unidentified exactly what level you need to remain in order to obtain Master Balls. My guess is level 30. Please post the level if somebody gets there prior to I do.
- You will be able to discover these updated balls at the very same Pokéstops as you can discover every other item once you hit the proper level. You'll also start making them as level bonuses, similar to you earn Poké balls as level bonuses at the lower experience levels.
- Use Lucky Eggs as frequently as you can, since they earn you double the experience for half an hour after you use them. Use them so that you can once again levels quickly so that you can not just unlock the Great, Ultra and Master Balls, however so that you can earn them faster as level bonuses.
- Be sure to use Razz Berries in combination with Great Balls for an additional result if you have actually not unlocked Ultra Balls yet. If you have actually not unlocked a Master Ball however you have actually possibly discovered a Legendary Pokemon or something of the ilk, use Ultra Balls in combination with the Razz Berries to make the Pokémon in concern simpler to capture.
- The very best place to discover all these balls is an area with a great deal of Pokéstops. Locations with the most Pokéstops consist of downtown locations, historical or old-town districts of cities, or other locations of note, such as a Chinatown or other historical ethnic territory. Church districts are also excellent. Any area with a lot of murals and memorials works.
- If you do not reside in an area with a lot of Pokéstops, technically, I expect you might use a GPS spoofer to take yourself to a more congested area with more stops. If you do firmly insist on unfaithful, anticipate to potentially get prohibited. Be ethical about it; do not put unnecessary pressure on gyms. Rather, adhere to using the satires to go to Pokéstops for more Great Balls, Ultra Balls and Master Balls.
- And you will have to go to a great deal of Pokéstops to obtain Great, Ultra and Master Balls after you hit the level that you unlock them at. The majority of exactly what you earn at Pokéstops will still be Poké Balls. Reports suggest that the more widely known or well-known a landmark is, the much better the rewards that you will earn from it, although to a high degree, it's also simply a game of opportunity.
- Maximize your Great Balls, Ultra Balls and Master Balls by saving them just till you truly, truly, truly require them. Great Balls should just be used to capture rare Pokemon that you cannot get with a great/nice shot, blended with a Razz Berry, blended with a Poké Ball. Ultra Balls should just be used to capture exceptionally rare Pokémon with a lots of power that even Great Balls and Razz Berries will not work for. When it comes to the Master Balls ... save those for the legendaries.
- Try to find special occasions to be hosted by Nintendo and Niantic. These occasions will offer you with additional opportunities to earn huge rewards, consisting of however not restricted to Master Balls, along with potentially Great Balls and Ultra Balls.
- As the game grows older, too, anticipate future updates to include Great Balls, Ultra Balls and Master Balls to the in-game shop, possibly, enabling you to purchase them with Pokécoins. Till then, and if you lose the Great Balls, use Razz Berries to make harder Pokemon much easier to capture with a lower-tier Poké Ball. Razz Berries can be made at Pokéstops all over.
- Many have actually reported seeing Moltres, particularly. Someone has actually reported seeing Articuno's shape with 3 steps beside it up until now. No one that I know of has actually reported seeing Zapdos or the Mew twins in the wild.
- The biggest Mew twins rumor out there centers around the idea that Mewtwo can be found in Times Square. This comes from an old trailer for Pokémon GO that was launched which included players collecting in Times Square, with Mewtwo generating throughout all their phones. They collaborated to face Mewtwo and after that they all captured him.
- That was just for the trailer. Mewtwo has actually not been generated in the wild yet and according to the designer Niantic, none have. Due to the fact that Niantic has to manually generate the legendaries, that is. The legendaries, unlike the even rare and typical Pokémon that penetrate the remainder of the game, do disappoint up unless they are manually made to appear.
- The way to get the legendaries is to wait for a special occasion to occur, and if Niantic's previous game Ingress is any indicator, there will be loads of special occasions, most likely held regular monthly or whenever there is a new console Pokémon game launched or to commemorate an anniversary of some kind. Bring along a lot of Great Balls, Ultra Balls and Master Balls with you when these special occasions.
- Niantic has formerly, in the game Ingress, arranged occasions where players battle to take control of a city, and a citywide occasion might definitely cause making the legendaries. In addition, players are arranged into 3 teams with Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres as mascots, so an around the world top-team competitors or an intra-team competitors to be the leading trainer might be arranged with those 3 birds as the rewards. Having incredibly high battle power or CP will help.
- When it comes to Ditto, it, like the legendaries, remains in the source code of the game; nevertheless, Ditto has actually not been contributed to the game yet and is up until now the only non-legendary Pokémon that not one bachelor has actually captured. Anticipate Ditto to be contributed to Pokémon GO with a future up to date to the game.
How get more Candy / Rare Candy
- The way to obtain candy for any Pokémon, rare or typical, or a minimum of one of the most fundamental way to do so, is to capture that Pokémon. You get 3 of their candy Whenever you capture a Pokémon. This mkes candy relatively easy to obtain if you are pursuing a typical Pokémon, however if you are choosing a rare, it is still somewhat harder.
- The other main technique of getting candy is to move among your Pokémon to Professor Elm. Due to the fact that you will not be able to get it back after you move it over, make sure that it is a Pokémon that you will not miss out on when it's gone. Once the transfer is complete, you will get one candy for that Pokémon.
- Since the beginners themselves are relatively rare, starter candy can be a little bit harder to get. There are still lots of places where you can capture the beginners, particularly the lowest-evolution beginners. And their candy works for all evolution levels, certainly-- so a Charmander Candy will work for Charmeleon and Charizard. Pikachu also counts as a starter Pokémon, and like the others, it can be discovered relatively arbitrarily-- frequently in downtown locations where a lot of electrical power circulations.
- Rare Pokémon will be harder to obtain however in order to get more rare candy, you'll have to discover more of the rare Pokémon. Aside from capturing them at random areas, make certain to continuously hatch eggs. You can hold up to 9 eggs at a time, and you should constantly be hatching them as you get them. Choose long strolls, runs, and bike trips to obtain the eggs hatching, or like some folks, fly a drone around if you are actually going to run the risk of dropping your phone from high heights. You need to walk/bike/etc with the game open so toss it into Battery Saver mode to make sure that it uses very little juice.
- Since rare Pokémon appear with higher frequency in direct percentage to how high your experience level is, focus on acquiring experience levels. That suggests go to a congested area with a lots of Pokestops and gather items (and experience, because Pokestops offer you experience points). When you see Pokémon, even if you have a lots of them currently (like Pidgey or Rattata), capture them and capture them typically for the experience points (and undoubtedly for the candy). The higher your level gets, the more rares you will discover, so the more rare candy you can get.
Focus on your list near the lower right corner of the screen if you desire a certain Pokémon. It lets you know how close you are getting to the Pokémon that remain in the surrounding area. So keep focus on the the indicator, and if you see the icon of the breed that you desire approaching the upper left position, that indicates you are very close. Less footprints also suggest the very same thing. Naturally, another option is to watch other Trainers. Folow those people gathered around a particular spot, that's a clue that something mat give you cool pokemons.
Catch a Legendary Pokemon
As you can imagine, capturing these pokemon is not easy. Also, you can only capture them in special Raid Battles which require a Legendary Raid Pass in order to participate.
Once you find the special egg and use your Legendary Raid Pass, you have 48 hours to prepare for the big battle. And it's really going to be a big battle!
According to various reports online from trainers who have joined forces to battle the legendary Pokemon, they will have CPs of around 40,000. Most likely, you will need groups of 15 or more people to make them easy to capture.
This is definitely bad news if you don't have many friends playing the game or you live in a very low population areas... but nothing's perfect in the real world and the same goes for Niantic's game, unfortunately.
But even after defeating a Legendary Pokemon in fair battle, chances of actually capturing them are extremely low. Some reports suggest that chances are around 2% - 4%, but you can use Golden Razz Berries to increase your chances and you should do so because you will definitely not get many shots at capturing your own legendary in the game.
If you manage to get one, you won't be able to use it for Gym defense. Fortunately, you will be allowed to use them when attacking other gyms and this basically gives you the ultimate weapon against your opponents.
So catching a legendary Pokemon in Pokemon Go doesn't give you bragging rights only, it also helps tremendously when it comes to winning all your battles.
How to Capture MewTwo
If you didn't get the chance to take part in the Yokohama Stadium event, you still have some chances of capturing the legendary Pokemon!
Niantic, the company behind the game, announced that they're rolling out special raids to special people. There are some requirements to get invited, and here are the details on them, according to Niantic themselves:
"To receive an invitation to participate in an Exclusive Raid Battle, Trainers must have successfully completed a raid recently, by defeating the Raid Boss, at the Gym where the Exclusive Raid Battle will be taking place. The invitations will include advance warning of when the Exclusive Raid will take place, giving them ample time to coordinate with other Trainers before taking on the powerful Raid Boss."
It is unclear right now if any Gym can get this special treatment or - the option I consider to be more likely - Gyms in very popular areas will have higher chances of turning into invite-only raids.
The good news is that during the Yokohama Stadium event in Japan, MewTwo had a capture rate of 100%. Hopefully, the same rates will be in place for future raids (it only seems fair to be like this), so if you meet the legendary, make sure that you defeat it and it's yours!
All 18 Alola Forms
Pokémon GO has added the Alola forms that made their debut in the Generation 7 Pokémon console and handheld games. There are 18 of them total, and all of them are variants on Generation 1 Pokémon but with a new look and different types. All of them can be found in Pokémon GO, but different methods have to be used to get all of them. Read on to find out how to get all of the Alola forms in Pokémon GO!
There are eight of them that can be found via the new 7Km Egg, which can only be earned from gift boxes that your friends give to you. If you hatch a 7Km egg, you'll get one of the following Alola forms: Grimer, Vulpix, Sandshrew and Meowth. You can then evolve them into the Alola versions of Muk, Ninetales, Sandslash and Persian. The evolved forms may also hatch from 7Km eggs, although this is extremely rare.
The Alola forms of Diglett and Geodude are going to be the most common finds, as they are available worldwide beginning on July 14-15, which is the weekend of Pokémon GO Fest 2018. They will be available after the Fest is over, so be on the lookout. Once you catch them, you can evolve them into the Alola forms of Dugtrio, Graveler, and Golem, and they can be evolved using candy that you got from the non-Alola forms, too.
The most hilarious-looking Alola Pokémon, by far, is Exeggutor, as it's so tall that its head won't even fit in the non-AR catch window. This one comes and goes depending on what special events happen in the Pokémon GO world, but this was the first to be released into the wild, beginning in May 2018 when it was extremely common. After that, sightings tend to come and go, but be on the lookout for a tall, ridiculous-looking silhouette in your finder view, or for another event in which they become common again.
So far, what's missing on the list are the Alolan forms of Rattata, Raticate, Marowak, and Raichu. Considering the commonality of Rattata, expect the initial release to be a worldwide release. Marowak and Raichu are far more rare to begin with, so expect them to either be added to 7Km eggs later on, or to be put out in limited-release form. There is also the possibility that they will eventually be able to evolve from Cubone and Pikachu (and that Exeggcute will be able to evolve into Alola Exeggutor), although under what circumstances is still yet unknown.
The Alola forms will not have their own Pokédex entries; instead, like the Castform and Shiny types of Pokémon, they will have sub-entries in the Pokédex under the original type of Pokémon. This will make it VERY easy to evolve the base 7km egg types, or Diglett or Geodude. This article will be updated as soon as future knowledge is released about the unreleased Alola forms.
Friends, Friendship Levels, Trading and Gifts Guide
Pokémon GO has been adding all sorts of new features over the years, and one of the most demanded and requested are friendship, trading Pokémon, and giving gifts back and forth to friends. These features are now live for everyone in Pokémon GO, so you can take advantage of everything that the friendship system has to offer, including trading Pokémon, battle bonuses, and giving gifts, including 7KM eggs containing the rare Alola forms! Read on for a full guide on what friendship can do in Pokémon GO!
When the feature first debuted, it was available only to level 40 players. Since then, the level limit has been dropped to 30, but that's not the final level. Currently, trades are available to level 10 players and above, but you have to be friends with someone to trade with them. That foreshadows a drop to level 10 at the highest (maybe lower in the future) as a requirement to take advantage of friendship features.
So to add a friend, if you are at the required level, tap on your avatar and enter their friendship code. The friendship code is a 12-digit number that someone has to give to you. You'll also find your 12-digit friendship code here, so you can give your code to people. Friend-finding is best done via local Pokémon GO Facebook, Discord, Twitter, Instagram, etc. groups, but can even be utilized in our q&A section.
Once you add a friend, there are five different friendship levels: Friend, Good Friend, Great Friend, Ultra Friend, and Best Friend. Friends can trade non-legendary, non-shiny Pokémon that aren't new to your Pokédex. Good Friends can trade all Pokémon listed above, plus a "special" trade up to once per day, and get one extra Premier Ball for raids. Great Friends get all of the above plus a small stardust cost reduction for trades and a small attack boost in gyms. Ultra Friends get all of the above plus a medium stardust cost reduction for trades and a medium attack boost in gyms. Best Friends get all of the above plus a major stardust cost reduction for trades and a huge attack boost for gyms.
So how to you boost your friendship level, you ask? You need to play together with someone for one day to become Good Friends, 7 days for Great Friends, 30 days for Ultra Friends, and 90 days for Best Friends. To play together with someone, you need to either send a gift, trade a Pokémon, challenge a gym together, or participate in a raid battle together. If you do one of these four things, that counts as one single day.
To trade a Pokémon with a friend, the two of you need to be at a minimum level 10 trainer level each (meaning that eventually, friendship features will be available to level 10 and under). Then, be within 100 meters of where your friend is (you can't trade from far away). Have enough stardust to pull the trade off - some trades cost more stardust than others, depending on things like the rarity of the Pokémon. Go to raids and make friends, and trade with them. Hunt for trades in your area, or join a local group to learn where the meet-ups are going to be.
To give a gift to a friend, you do NOT need to be close to them physically, like with trading. Instead, you have to simply be friends with the person. Go to the Pokéstops and spin until you get gifts. You (obviously) won't be able to open gifts when you get them - instead, gift them to your friends. They'll gift them to you when they get them from their own Pokéstop spins, as well. Gifts contain high-value items, with the highest-value of all being 7Km eggs, but other items can include things such as ultra ball, incubators, and lures.
Eevee evolution choices (Espeon/Umbreon)
- Walk 10KM with Eevee as your partner.
- Evolving it during the day will get you Espeon.
- Evolving it during the night will get you Umbreon.
Premium and Basic battles
You will have the ability to select in between Premium or Standard battles in the new Battle screen, which is on your home Menu along with the Store and your Pokémon. You can enter the Premium battles in exchange for a Premium Raid Pass, and it uses much better rewards - as long as you win.
You'll be matched versus random players online, and fortunately, the community is very active, so you should not have a hard time to find players. Now you can just enter Great League battles online, indicating your Pokémon can have a CP no higher than 1500. Ensure you get some strong mons just listed below that CP level prior to you enter. Thankfully, even when your Pokémon get hurt or faint in this mode, you will not require to use your Revives and Potions on them later on in order to get them approximately battling type once again.
Using attack speed
Among the most essential techniques you can put in place is also among one of the most apparent and standard: type benefits. You will not have the ability to know what 3 Pokémon the enemy is entering into battle with, however you can attempt and guarantee you have a well balanced, strong team to take them down. Normal types like Snorlax and Blissey, for instance, have high HP, and can be troublesome. Which is why you should come equipped with a Pokémon with Fighting type transfers to take them apart rapidly and quickly. Pokémon with higher attack speed will also come in handy and can charge their strong attack faster, however there is no easy way to see your Pokémon attack speed in-game.
When you're up versus a Pokémon with a type benefit versus you, it's time to switch out, however that can trigger it's own concerns. Switching Pokémon will reset your charged attack, which naturally, is the very best way to do damage. Not just that, you will be set with a long swap timer wait up until you can alter Pokémon once again, which can come back to bite you. Of course, if you see the challenger switching Pokémon out, you can use this to your benefit, since you know they'll be locked into using that Pokémon for a duration of time.
Fighting trainer online rewards
As long as you win, you can get huge rewards from fighting trainers online, particularly from the Premium path, which is most definitely the main factor to enter into these battles. The only thing you should bear in mind is that after fighting versus other trainers, you will need to walk for 5km prior to having the ability to battle online once again. This, if absolutely nothing else, is a great way for the game to guarantee you never ever overlook any one element of the game. If you desire Rare Candy, Sinnoh Stones, and numerous more items, you should certainly get fighting as quickly as you can.
