‘Pokémon Go’: 10 Cheats, Tip & Tricks You Need to Know

6. Can’t Move Around? Use Incense

If you want to play the game at work, school, or in some situation where you can’t easily walk around, there is a solution: make use of Incense.

Using Incense items will make Pokémon spawn near you, even when you remain in one place. A single use of Incense will last about 30 minutes and will bring five or six Pokémon to you. Everyone starts the game with two Incense items, and you can purchase more after that with coins (or with real money).

Be advised, though: You probably shouldn’t use your Incense unless the game’s servers appear to be quite stable, as if they go down two minutes after you active your Incense, you’ll lose those remaining 28 minutes.

The other option is to use lures; this is basically the same thing as Incense, except it can be used by everyone in your area, not just by you, and it attaches itself to a Poke Stop.

7. Pay Attention to the Footsteps Graphic

UPDATE: This footsteps feature has been temporarily removed from the game, but now, nearby Pokemon can be tracked via the “sightings” feature.

When a Pokémon is nearby, you’ll notice a graphic in the bottom right of the screen with a Pokémon silhouette. Click that button and it will pull up a menu showing all the Pokémon that are in your immediate area. Each one has a footsteps graphic bellow it, but notice that the number of footsteps varies depending on the creature.

This is actually valuable information about how close any given Pokémon is to you. If there’s only one footstep, it’s pretty close by, whereas three footsteps indicates it’s much further away.

Use this in conjunction with the green leaves, which demonstrates where Pokémon typically spawn, in order to track down that elusive creature in your area.


8. You Can Revive a Pokémon by Evolving It

As you continue to partake in gym battles across the map, you will likely see your Pokémon continuously lose health and need to be healed or revived.

The main way to do this is by using a potion or revive item, which can be obtained by visiting Poké Stops.

But there’s also a workaround: if you were thinking of evolving the injured Pokémon anyway, keep in mind that doing so will restore them to full health, so it may not be worth wasting an item in this situation. To evolve a Pokémon, hit the Pokéball, go to Pokémon, select the Pokémon, and hit evolve.

9. Turn on Power Saver Mode

Pokémon Go players will often have the game open for hours at a time, which can be a real drain on your phone’s battery. Luckily, there is an in-game solution to this problem.

Hit the PokeBall at the bottom of the screen and head over to the settings button in the top right. From there, simply select “battery saver mode.” Now, whenever you have your phone upside-down, i.e. in your pocket while you’re walking, the screen will dim and show only the Pokémon Go logo. This way, you’re saving battery by not having all the game’s graphics loaded at once, but you will still be notified when a Pokemon or Poke Stop is nearby.

In addition, turning off Augmented Reality mode will help save battery. If you plan to play the game quite regularly, investing in a portable battery also wouldn’t hurt. Find more tips for saving battery life in Pokémon Go here:


10. Use Lucky Eggs Wisely

When activated, Lucky Eggs give players double XP and make leveling up much easier. (Niantic/IGN)

If you want to gain a lot of XP quickly, Lucky Eggs are your best friend. Once you activate this item, you will get an XP boost over the course of the following 30 minutes.

The game doesn’t really give you much of an explanation about what the heck the Lucky Eggs are, though, and so new players might accidentally waste them. You’ll want to use these strategically; for example, you could make use of your Lucky Egg and an Incense item at the same time, or perhaps activating your Lucky Egg while near several Poke Stops and then activating a lure. Finally, waiting to evolve a Pokemon until you deploy a Lucky Egg will net players quite a bit of XP.

In addition to the eggs the game gives you after reaching level 9, you can also purchase additional eggs in the store. Learn more about Pokémon Go Lucky Eggs here:

Using the GPS app did not work. It caused the game to have an error message that my GPS location could not be found. Had to fix everything and took me a while. Was praying I didn’t get banned. :/

Best way to level is mathing out the exp needed to comple the level need (see example)make sure your stocked up on wheedle,caterpillar, and pigy candies. When you use a lucky egg it doubles evolution bonus… And with pidgy and caterpie/ weedle only costing 12 candy and giving 1k exp it’s a quick way to level
Example at level 19 you need 25000 exp to get to level 20
25000 so you need 25 combination of the 3 weedle caterpie and pidgy

When I read, “One of youtubers recommended this website:” I’m like, “that sounds legit!”.
Anybody who actually falls for that shit, is basically insinuating that they want malware vomited all over them secretly in the night..

A several years back, the property intercom systems were only helping us to own voice communication. Home is where your loved ones is, and this alone makes this concern severe.
Home security uk For this reason, one in the best
actions it is possible to take in relation to security
would be to never follow exactly the same routine.

If, however, your property was built several years ago,
this is probably not the case. Imagine smart controlling
of all your house electrical appliances from place with all the touch of
the button.
