Pokemon GO

Parent Category: Pokemon
Pokemon GO is a Pokemon game where you can hunt Pokemon in the real world, as well as catching, battling (solo and group battles), collecting, and trading Pokemon all using the GPS on your phone. It was developed by Niantic Labs in a Partnership with the Pokemon company.
According to a USA Today article, as of 13 July 2016, 15 millions  people have downloaded the game in the US alone, but these numbers  are always changing.
Not by themselves, but you can get more from visiting PokéStops,  which are usually located at local landmarks or popular locales.  Here you can not only get pokeballs, but also potions, razz  berries, revives, and other useful items, all for free.
No. But since you have given permissions to the app, a 3rd party  hacker could get in. But it's very unlikely as it only access's  simple mechanics.
You do not need wifi in order to play, but having it turned on on  your device can help increase location accuracy.
Not at the moment. Pokemon GO currently contains only Generation 1  Pokemon, and Mudkip is in Gen 3, so it may be a while before they  add it.
Your Pokemon should return to you automatically once it is deposed  from the gym it defended.
You might be able to, though the game certainly works better on  newer devices. Make sure your OS is as up-to-date as your device  can handle before downloading.
They seem to appear randomly on the map. Less frequently than  Rattata and Pidgey, for example, but not impossible to find. You  can also probably hatch them from eggs, if you are lucky enough.
Very unlikely. It only partially works on an iPhone 4S, so an  iPhone 4 would probably be unable to play.
Once you reach level 5, you may choose a team: Instinct, Mystic,  and Valor. Your personal choice will probably be influenced by what  team your friends are on, the team's ideology, or your favorite  color.
It's hard to find a unique name for Pokemon GO, since you have to  find one that is different than millions of other people. Try  "Illuminutty." That might not be taken. If it is, try something you  like with some numbers after it. :) For example Sunshine34. Keep  making the number higher until...
You can earn coins by either adding your Pokemon to a gym your team  controls and then tapping on the shield symbol on the upper  righthand corner of the "Shop" screen, or by purchasing the coins  with real money.
Some estimates say Nintendo is making $1.6 million dollars every  day from the game. The revenue has probably increased since that  statistic, since it is now available in more countries.
The numbers may have rounded up to 5km without fully reaching it.  Walk around some more and your egg should hatch if it's still in  its incubator.
You can get Pikachu candy by either hatching one from an egg,  catching one in the wild, or transferring it to the Professor. The  same goes for any type of Pokemon.
Tap on a pokemon, then throw a pokeball at it until you catch it.
That depends on what item you are referring to. In general, if you  have your account open on two different devices, it could be  throwing errors like that, or maybe you used up all of your potions  but clicked one twice there at the end or something?
No, you do not need WiFi for Pokemon Go to work. But, you do need  cellular data to play, and it does use much of your cell data plan  monthly.
Don't hack. It against Niantic's rules.
Yes you do get Pokémon go on iPad Pro
Your phone may not have enough power to generate the image. Just  turn off AR
You can get them by adding your Pokémon to a gym your team  controls, then going to the Shop screen and tapping the shield icon  in the upper righthand corner. This, however, only gives you a few  at a time, and only every 21 hours or so. You have to pay real  money to get Pokécoins in greater...
You should be able to rename a Pokemon any number of times in the  game.
App Store or Google Play Store?
The camera only turns on during the event you are capturing a wild  Pokemon. Sometimes the artificial background is on so you will need  to his on the right right a little switch that says "AR". Once you  select that your camera should turn on.
This can sometimes be a problem if you live in a rural area or have  an older phone. If Pokemon GO is never checking your location go to  the settings page and hit "Report a problem" and let the developers  know. In the future they may be able to see what is happening and  find a way to solve it...
Well the thing is I have a feeling that the exploding leaves in  Pokemon go mean that there is a new Pokemon being made. I could be  wrong that was just a thought.
When walking around on Pokemon Go you might notice some green or  black leaves on your map. This just means Pokemon are spawning in  that general area. It does not mean they are at the source of the  leaves, but about 100 feet around there.
When you are in Pokemon go look at the bottom left corner. Right by  your experience bar and level will be your nickname for your  account. If you don't see it try clicking your EXP bar to open your  profile.
What base (question mark)
According to Silphroad.com, it looks like Mewtwo has the highest  stats.
No, unfortunately you can't currently. The creator of Pokemon GO  has not made the app compatible with Windows Phones.
Pokemon Go is developed and managed by multiple companies. The main  companies are: Niantic, Inc and The Pokemon Company. Nintendo also  happens to own a great share of the cooperation.
No it has been determined that an hour of use on Pokemon GO uses  about 12 MB of data. Compared to GB this is a very minimal use of  your data. It is said that your phone battery will go quicker than  your data plan.
Sometimes when you hit level 5 is does not automatically ask you to  join a team. To fix this, go to the gym closest to you and click on  it. When trying to enter instead of being told to come back later  you should be asked to join one of the 3 teams.
Not yet, as the game is still in its beta phase, but this is a  feature the developers plan to add in the future.
when you go back they usually aren't there if they're rare. But if  its pidgey then he'll probably be there and everywhere else.
Each Pokémon knows two moves, and sometimes the second move varies  between two of the same Pokémon. When added up, there's probably a  few hundred moves available in PoGo. This pales in comparison to  the number of moves present in standard Pokémon games, but for a  mobile game that is...
Best team all depends on your area and how many people there are on  a certain team. No one team is better than the other. It just might  be easier if you know your location and gyms around you are a  certain team.
People are obsessed with Pokemon Go because it is the first game in  Pokemon history where you can go out and catch Pokemon yourself and  be your own trainer. Not to mention it uses the old original 150  Pokemon from the beginning of the Pokemon company.
Team Mystic is the most popular one.
There is no prize. Sorry, buddy.
New York city is known as the highest spawning ground for Pokemonin Pokemon GO. The most common Pokemon you will see are Pidgey,Spearow, Zubat, Rattata, Machop, Machoke, Oddish, Gloom, Magnemite,and Weedle.
You can, actually, but it takes patience and persistence. You have  to walk past all of the starters three or four or five times in a  row, and if you do, then a Pikachu should appear.
All the pokemons can come to you with incense
Pokemon Go is popular you have access to playing online and  catching Pokemons!
You will most likely never find 1000 CP Pokemon in the wild. You  will be able to start powering them up to that level once your  trainer level hits around 20.
Collect eggs at pokestops.
If you rename your Eevee Rainer, it will turn into a Vaporeon, and  then you can rename it something else if you prefer.    Sparky=Jolteon   Rainer=Vaporeon   Pyro=Flareon    Be sure to correctly spell the name and capitalize the first  letter.    Also, if you evolve...
I mean you just say Pokemon Go nothing special, just like when yousay the word "huh?" it is pronounced the same in every language(butI don't know about spelling) so yeah, as far as I know, there is notranslation for Pokemon GO in Spanish mindblown :0
You have to go to pokestops and spin it. You have a chance to get an egg
I think it is mostly people who 1. Think Pokemon is stupid and  juvenile, and 2. People who think that cell phones are ruining the  world and that Pokemon GO is making it worse. In my opinion,  Pokemon is fun and enjoyable even for adults. I love playing with  my brothers and nieces and nephews....

That's what usually happens when the game can't connect to the GPS.  If that signal is lost, then it doesn't know where you are, and it  can't display what is around you. Make sure you are allowing the  game to connect with your phone's GPS, and if it already can, try  checking your internet...
Yes, but the game isn't really built for the iPad, so it might be  glitchy. I was having problems with it quitting a lot on me, but I  was using an older iPad. Newer ones might work better.
You can't get back things that you delete, but you can go to  pokestops and get new things.
You can use incense. Sometimes they just spawn where you are if youare not moving.
When you see a Pokemon on your screen nearby or in your location,  tap on the Pokemon, then flick your finger upwards on the screen to  throw the Poke Ball when you are in a "battle" with it. Sometimes,  the Poke Ball can miss, but it'll allow you to try again. When the  Poke Ball absorbs the...
There are a lot of fan theories about this. Some people think that Ditto is hiding out in the form of other Pokemon, or that there is some trick in the game that we haven't found to get a Ditto (or to get Ditto to reveal himself). Ditto is supposedly in the game's code, so it is there, but so far...
Although both Pokemon GO and the main series of video games have  many similar features, there are also some significant differences.  Here are some of them:    In the main series of games, Pokemon may be traded with other  trainers and between games.    There are no teams for trainers...
I think that the reason Pokemon GO is super popular is that it is a mixture of quirky and new, super accessible, inexpensive, happy memory, and fun. It is also something that appeals to all ages, and is easy to play. Although Niantic's previous game (Ingress) incorporated similar gameplay, as well...
From the main menu (click the Pokeball from the main screen),  choose Items, then choose a potion. One you do that, it will  display any of your Pokemon that are hurt, and if you click on one  it will apply the potion you selected. If you need to heal more  than one, you can just click on...
Good question. Many people try to use it the same way you use  incense, from the items area. However, lures are used in a  different way.   To place a lure, you need to tap on the PokeStop, and then (before  spinning to get items), you will see a little white  oval/pill-shaped area. This is...
If you are having trouble finding a gym, try playing near urban  areas.
Cause of pokemon people died they are coming to places that aredangerous they will focus on their phones not caring where theyare. some people are kidnapped and the POKEMON GO stopped.
There's only one way to get Pokecoins for free: put your pokemon in  gyms and collect from the gym defender bonus in the shop.
You can, but it doesn't work very well. It blows up a lot and the  app will just quit when you try to do complicated things.
They're rare, so you just have to find one by chance.
After you reach level 5, you just have to enter a gym, and you will  trigger the encounter where you choose a team.    Make sure you think about what team you want to join ahead of time,  and check with family and friends, so that you can play together if  you want to. Choosing a team is...
First, you have to reach level 5. Get in range of a gym, tap on it,  and there should be a button on the bottom right that lets you  battle.
Unfortunately, you can't. Once you choose a team, that is your team  forever.    Make sure that you think about which team you want to join before  you make the decision. You might want to get with your friends and  family and decide together, so that you can support the same team.
Your choices are Team Mystic, Team Valor, or Team Instinct.    As far as hunting, your team doesn't really matter.    Teams come into play when it comes to controlling gyms. Each team  is supposed to have a different philosophy on how to train, but in  the end, it usually comes down to...
You can choose a team after you reach level 5. You will have a  choice between Team Valor, Team Instinct, and Team Mystic.  Professor Willow will lead you through the rest. Just be sure you  pick the team you want the most, because you won't be able to  change it later.
Evolution in Pokemon GO is dependent on candy. You slowly collect  candy of different types as you catch Pokemon of that type (if  Pokemon are evolutions of each other, the candy will be named after  the lowest evolution).    On the screen for an individual Pokemon, it will show the cost of ...
If you are trying to transfer and you cannot, it might just be a  bug in the game, or you are using an older phone that can't handle  the game very well.    In general, the game does allow you to transfer Pokemon, but only  to the Professor.    To do so, first tap to view the Pokemon...
You basically throw Pokeballs at Pokemon to collect them, and themore you do that, the more you level up and are able to get betterPokemon and better Pokeballs. You can also evolve your Pokemon the more you catch the same type,and you can battle at local gyms to take them over for your team.There...
If it causes traffic problems or a public nuisance, yes.

The game is a collaboration between companies mainly in the United  States and in Japan. However, Pokemon is a game that is famous all  over the world, so people all over the world have something to do  with it, as far as translating, localizing, promoting, etc.
No, Pokemon GO itself is not dangerous. Paying attention to your  phone instead of your surroundings is dangerous, especially while  driving. Going to dangerous places and trespassing is dangerous,  and you shouldn't do either one, even if you might be able to catch  a cool Pokemon. As long as...
Not really. The game needs to know where you are so that it can  show you the Pokemon around you and track your steps, but it  doesn't use any of that information to spy on your or do anything  with it outside of the game itself.
With such a big, popular game, it is going to be harder to stop the  cheating, so the Pokemon Company and Niantic are taking a harder  line now.    Instead of soft-banning people and then allowing them back after  they play nicely for a period of time, they are hard-banning them  and not...
According to Niantic's FAQ page, these are some things that can get  you banned:    "Falsifying your location, using emulators, modified or unofficial  software and/or accessing Pokémon GO clients or backends in an  unauthorized manner including through the use of third party  software." ...
We looked through several sites for the answer to this, and the  best one that we can find is one that Eurogamer.net tested. It was  a Oukitel K4000, which they got for less than $100 on eBay. Pokemon  GO seems to play really well on it, and it is very durable with a  lot of other cool features,...

It's all about opinion. I personally am on Team Mystic.  Statistically, Team Mystic is the most popular team.
There are currently 28 badges available in Pokémon GO. They are  each available at three levels (Bronze, Silver, and Gold). Here is  a list of all the badge names, and requirements for the different  levels:    Ace Trainer Badge:    Bronze: Train 10 times at a friendly Gym  Silver:...
In actual gameplay, there is no difference (at least so far), but  in philosophy and the team leaders and symbols they are different:    Team Instinct (Yellow):    Philosophy: Pokemon are creatures with excellent intuition. I  bet the secret to their intuition is related to how they're ...
Here are the items you can get in Pokemon GO:    Camera (For taking pictures of Pokemon. You get it  automatically.)     Great Ball (For catching Pokemon. Better than a Poke Ball, but  not as good as an Ultra Ball.)   Hyper Potion (For healing Pokemon. Better than a Super Potion, ...
