1. Playing while moving.
When you’re playing while on the move, it’s crucial that you be fast on the PokeStops. A common problem is that you end up out of range before you have a chance to spin. When you’re engaged in battle with a Pokemon while you’re moving, you can rest assured that you will always be within range. You will never go out of range so there is no need to panic and hastily do battle with a wild creature if you’re not ready yet.
2. Pokemon have a variety of moves.
Unlike most video games where the characters have fixed capabilities and moves, with Pokemon Go, the Pidgeys have different levels of combat power. They also have different moves. So, keep your mind open to the possibilities and don’t let high CP be the only criteria you deem important.
3. The higher your trainer level, the better.
This is a point many people miss. In order to have a super high CP Pokemon, you absolutely need a high trainer level. Only with this can you boost your chances of finding rare and powerful Pokemon. Do not rely on luck if you want powerful fighters. You MUST level up.
4. PokeStops refresh constantly.
While everyone is running around in a mad rush looking for PokeStops, one secret you should know is that PokeStops refresh once every 5 minutes. So, if you’re in the vicinity of 4 PokeStops, you can just walk one round, hit them all and collect all the special items.
5. Get more candies by transferring your duplicate Pokemon.
If you play the game long enough, you will end up with more Pokemons than you need and you’ll run out of space. You really do not need to keep every single one. Just transfer them to the Professor by clicking on the Transfer button and you’ll remove the duplicate Pokemon and also get a monster candy.
6. Save your battery power
This game seriously drains your phone’s battery power and since your battery power is crucial to keep playing the game, you need to conserve it wisely. You can do that by downloading the maps to your phone. This will mean that you don’t need WiFi to play the game. You’ll save battery power and also cut down on your data usage by playing the game offline.
Remember these 6 secrets and use them to gain an advantage over everyone else playing Pokemon Go.
1. Circles Matter
When trying to catch a Pokémon, hold your finger down on the ball so that circles show up on the target. A green circle means the target will be easier to catch than a yellow or red circle. The circle will shrink and grow. If you hit the Pokémon with the Pokéball when the moving circle is at its smallest, the Pokémon will be easier to capture. Hitting when the ring is at its smallest is particularly important if the ring is a color other than green.
2. Location Matters
Even if you aren't unfortunate enough (relative to this game) to live rural, many housing and subdivisions lack a good frequency of Pokémon spawning. Sometimes this is even true if you're willing to walk a distance. At times like these, getting in your car can be incredibly helpful! While you certainly should NOT play the game and drive, simply driving to a more populated area can greatly improve the variety of Pokémon you find as soon as you start walking. Historic areas of towns, shopping mall parking lots, community parks (particularly ones with lots of historical markers), and your local zoo can all be excellent places to spend your time. Then get ready to evolve a whole lot of them from their first tier to their second tier! (Pidgey is a great one to do this with since it requires fewer candies than most for its first tier evolution.) Want to level up even faster? Hold onto them!
3. Make The Most Of Potential Experience Points
Sometimes, leveling up can make experience seem hard to come by. This is especially true when you keep collecting the same type of Pokemon over and over! Fortunately, collecting a whole lot of the same isn't a bad thing! Turn some of them in to Professor Willow for candy of that Pokemon's type until you have a lucky egg and then evolve a whole bunch!
4. Pack A Spare Mobile Battery Pack
Running the game, the screen, and location data can be incredibly taxing on your phone's battery. Often you will find your battery running out before your feet say it's time to quit. A spare mobile battery or battery pack can give you a LOT more play time and the newer ones aren't particularly expensive. Battery packs are rated in mA (milliamps) and larger ones will give you more play time than smaller ones.
Bonus Tip: Constant use of location data can rapidly chew up your existing data plan. This can leave you with no access or, worse, data overage charges, which will make you sad. Consider either increasing your plan or picking up a prepaid mobile hotspot so you can easily buy a few more gigs of data only when you need them. (If you're hanging out in a parking lot, store, or near a PokéStops, be sure to check for free Wi-Fi nearby!)
