Tips and Tricks to be ahead on Pokemon Go (Be a Pokemon Master) – Since Pokemon Go is so happening around the world, you have to do several things so you can be ahead in this addictive game. Here are tips and tricks you can follow.
Catch Pikachu as your starter Pokemon
When you sign up Pokemon Go, you only offered three options of Pokemon, Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle. However if you walk away from these trio Pokemon for about 4 to 5 times, Pikachu will appear for you to catch as Pokemon starter.
Master your capture skills
When you see rustling leaves, it means there is wild Pokemon near you. Once you see it, tap Poke Ball so your camera phone will launch into AR or augmented reality which you catch Pokemon with real landmark as a background. Focus the camera on your target, and you will see the white ring surrounding Pokemon will change the colors and size. The smaller the ring, the bigger the chance for you to catch Pokemon. Remember green ring means it is easy to catch Pokemon, the yellow ring means it is a little harder to catch Pokemon but you may have a chance, and red ring means it is very hard to catch Pokemon unless you have more Poke Ball or upgrade the power of Poke Ball. To increase your catch rates, it is better if you shut down the AR camera.
Use your Poke Coins for rare items
Pokemon Go allows you to use real-world currency buy the items. This real-world currency will dub as Poke Coin. Instead of buying Poke Ball which you can get it for free in every Poke Stop you visit, use your Poke Coin for rare items like lure patch or incense. So you can use those items when you don’t have a time walking around to hunt Pokemon. Click here to learn How to get free poke coins for Pokemon GO
