Pokemon Go Tips

How to catch Pokemon without leaving home

What we all really want to know:

How can I catch Pokemon from my couch? Incense is pretty handy for fulfilling all your Pokemon master dreams from home. These are purchasable from the store, and can be consumed to draw Pokemon to your location for 30 minutes.

How to take over gyms and become a gym leader

Each gym has a prestige number that represents the cp of the Pokemon stationing it. By battling gyms and winning, the prestige will drop. If it hits zero, you will successfully take over the gym for your team and need to place Pokemon there to defend it. If other members of your team drop by, they can also leave Pokemon. If your Pokemon has the highest cp, you will be deemed the gym leader.

How to get and hatch eggs

There’s no breeding mechanic in Pokemon go, so you’ll be getting your eggs from Pokestops. Once you’re in possession of one, head to your Pokemon menu and flip over to the eggs page on the right. You’ll need to tap on the egg and place it in an incubator, and then walk a certain distance for it to hatch. Most importantly, the Pokemon go app has to be active while you’re walking, and won’t register your steps at higher, car-like speeds.
The game also has lucky eggs, which don’t make Pokemon at all. These can be bought from the store and can be consumed to grant 30 minutes of double xp.

Rare Pokemon and rings

You can find rarer Pokemon at higher trainer levels, and the rings around them indicate difficulty. Green rings signal an easy catch, yellow will be slightly more difficult, orange harder still, and Pokemon with red rings will be very hard to catch, prone to busting out of poke balls or running away entirely.

Pokestop modules

If you’ve randomly tapped on the pokestop screen enough, you may have noticed they come with a module slot. If you purchase a lure module from the store, you can place it here and attract Pokemon to the stop for 30 minutes. Unlike incense, anyone will be able to benefit from the lure. It seems as though additional modules may be added in the future, but lure is all we have for now.

How to get pokecoins

Pokecoins are Pokemon go’s currency, and can be used to purchase all kinds of fun stuff from the in-game store, like modules or larger collection bags. You can either buy them with real money or earn them by dominating gyms. You’ll get 10 pokecoins a day for every Pokemon you have defending a gym of your team’s color, and can earn up to 100 per day through this.

How to get candy

Candy’s crucial for powering up and evolving your Pokemon, but Pokemon go never really specifies

How to get it. On rare occasions, you can get them as loot at Pokestops, but more commonly they’re acquired by catching Pokemon, transferring Pokemon to professor willow, and hatching eggs.

How to get stardust

Continuing the trend of unexplained currency acquisition, Pokemon go is pretty silent on stardust. You can get it by catching Pokemon or as reward for defending a gym for a day.

How to turn on power saver mode

Pokemon go sucks a lot of battery, so feel free to click on the poke ball menu button, hit settings in the top right corner, and active battery saver. Maybe now I only have to buy two external chargers.

Eevee Evolution

You can evolve your eevee in Pokemon go, but you won’t get to choose what eevee evolution you get. Whether you get a flareon, vaporeon, or jolteon is all up to chance.

Rustling leaves

Rustling leaves aren’t the most confusing feature Pokemon go doesn’t explain, but here’s the lowdown anyways: they signal nearby Pokemon, and walking near them will often trigger and encounter. Sometimes rarer than average Pokemon can be found in rustling grass, but you could always just end up with another pidgey.

What to do with your extra Pokemon (aka what the hell is transferring)

Toss ’em. Unless you particularly enjoy carrying around a personal pidgey army, the best thing to do with duplicate Pokemon is to transfer them to professor willow from their stat page. This is basically a less sinister way to dump them, while also collecting candy from the professor in return.

XS and XL

Notice any xs or xl symbols on your Pokemon’s stat page? These indicate your Pokemon’s height or weight is smaller or larger than the average for that species. Larger Pokemon aren’t necessarily stronger, so it’s generally useless information outside of the youngster medal, which tasks you with catching rattata weighing under 1kg.

Those tiny footprints

In the bottom right of your screen, you’ll see a little box of Pokemon silhouettes. Tap that, and it’ll open up a screen s

Having nearby Pokemon, each with a set of footprints beneath them. One footprint (or none) means the Pokemon is right under your nose. Two means it’s a little farther away. Three footprints means it’s quite a ways off. You can tap on of the Pokemon listed here, and that’ll keep it in the lower right of your screen so you can track its distance.

How to add friends, trade, change your appearance, change your username, or change your team

You can’t. Maybe one day we’ll be able to play with friends and reverse our terrible decisions, but not today.


Cp, or combat points, signify the strength of your Pokemon. Basically, high cp = beat the crap out of all the weaker Pokemon. You can raise it using Pokemon candy and stardust.

How to name your Pokemon

If you click on your Pokemon in your menu and bring up its stat page, you’ll spot a light grey pencil icon to the right of their name. Hit that to give your Pokemon a nickname.

How to get poke balls, great balls, and ultra balls

You can always buy poke balls using pokecoins in the store, but if you want them the cheap way, you can get them by visiting pokestops and collecting their random loot.

How to battle

Battle’s aren’t much like they are in traditional Pokemon games. You can only do battle at an enemy gym, where you’ll challenge its defending Pokemon with a chosen team of six. Swipe left and right to dodge attacks from the enemy, and tap on the screen to use normal attacks. Type still matters, so keep in mind the strengths and weaknesses of your Pokemon and moves.

How to use special attacks in battle

Your Pokemon each have two attacks, a normal one and a special one. The latter is stronger, and can only be used once your special bar is filled in combat. Keep using normal attacks until this blue meter is full, then hold down
