Preliminary information

Pokemon GO Get moving

Before going into the details of how to get around on Pokémon GO , I think you might be interested to know more about this special title of the video game series originally created by Nintendo.

Well, Pokémon GO is a game very different from the other video games dedicated to Pikachu and companions. In fact, it is a chapter designed for smartphones and tablets, which has a rather different vision of fun from the traditional titles of the series, both as regards the game mechanics and speaking of the imagery offered by the title.

The reason behind the many differences with the traditional chapters of Pokémon is therefore to be found in the different nature of the Pokémon GO project, which tries to be a more “engaging” title than the others in many ways.

The most important novelty introduced by Pokémon GO compared to the other games in the series is that related to the way the user moves within the game world.

In fact, Pokémon GO uses GPS and other geolocation systems to understand the user’s position and position him within the game world, built through the use of augmented reality.

This means that in order to move, the player must enable geolocation of their device and start walking in the real world : to activate this feature, all you have to do is then press on the Allow item  when the game asks you to enable geolocation and start moving in the real world. In short, nothing simpler!

As for the places in Pokémon GO, the main structures to refer to are the PokéStops and the Gyms. The former are nothing more than meeting places in which to obtain objects and spend time in the company of other trainers, perhaps using some Bait Module to attract Pokémon to be captured. In the real world, PokéStops are usually places of historical / artistic interest, while in the game they are marked with blue circles .

Pokémon GO gyms

As for the Gyms , the latter are nothing more than a place where the trainers battle with their Pokémon to become the “owners” of a specific place.

In Pokémon GO, gyms are high- rise  structures . As for the early stages of the game, my advice is to start taking items and empower yourself through the PokéStops, as Gyms are often very difficult to defeat.

Of course, don’t miss out on the best Pokémon you will encounter on the street: you can see which Pokémon are nearby through the tab at the bottom right of the screen. Also, to get more chances, I suggest you get help from your friends or other players you meet during your adventure. For more details, I invite you to take a look at my guide on  how Pokémon GO works .

How to improve geolocation in Pokémon GO

High Geolocation precision

In some cases, Pokémon GO may have trouble detecting your location. Usually this is due to the common margin of error inherent in GPS. However, there is a method for improving the accuracy of geolocation through a native functionality offered by most mobile devices.

If you are using an Android device , to improve the accuracy of the GPS, you need to go to the Settings and look for the item Geolocation / Location . After that, you have to tap on the item High Accuracy / Geolocation Accuracy and activate the relative lever . Unfortunately, I can’t be more precise with my indications, as each version of Android has a slightly different procedure.

If, on the other hand, you have an iPhone or iPad, I simply recommend you activate  BluetoothGPS and  Wi-Fi / cellular data , so that the smartphone has all the sensors necessary to correctly carry out geolocation in Pokémon GO.

Many players have not yet gotten used to the method used to move in Pokémon GO and would like to play the title of Niantic without having to walk in the real world.

In this sense, the Web is full of information related to hacks and tricks that allow you to do this, but my advice is to leave it alone. In fact, this method is not well-liked neither by the community of Pokémon GO enthusiasts nor by the developers of the title. To have fun and have a healthy gaming experience, I therefore advise you not to listen to those who propose to teach you how to move standing still on Pokémon GO.

However, I can give you some advice to make the time you are at home useful for the game: buy and keep many Aromas aside . In fact, these consumables are able to make Pokémon appear near your home and the movement you need to do to catch them will be minimal or zero.

In short, following this suggestion you can play a little Pokémon GO even when you are at home, but you will clearly have to alternate sessions outside to be able to continue. For more details on the game of Niantic, I recommend you check out my tutorial on how to play Pokémon GO .
