We all grew up with Pokemon. Back in 2016, all of our childhood dreams became true when Pokemon Go was released. The app allowed you to become a trainer and walk around your own city in order to catch Pokemon. If you are new to the game, we have prepared a couple of tips that should help you become an expert in no time.
Pokemon Go items explained
In Pokemon Go, you will use certain items. For example, Poke Balls are used to catch the Pokemon that you find in the wild. At first, you will only get Poke Balls. However, as the game goes on you will also be able to use Great Balls and then Ultra Balls.
Wild Pokemon can be hard to find sometimes. If you use incense, more Pokemon will become available in your area for half an hour which should let you catch more Pokemon than you usually do. Razz Berries should also make it easier for you to catch Pokemon. They can be used after level 8 and they will come in handy when you try to catch a powerful Pokemon.
Potions will help you during gym battles and they can be used to heal and revive Pokemon. Pinap Berries will double the amount of candy you get when you catch a Pokemon.
Gyms and PokeStops
You should be able to find PokeStops all over the map. Each time you spin them you should get 50 experience points as well as new items. Gyms don’t look that different from PokeStops, but they serve a different function. You should be able to find them on the map after level 5. There you can enter fights with your Pokemon. If you win you should win PokeCoins as well as experience.
