In 2013, I started my Ziff Davis career as an intern on"s Software team. Now, I’m an Analyst on the Apps & Gaming team, and I really just want to use my fancy Northwestern University journalism degree to lớn write about đoạn phim games. I host The Pop-Off,"s đoạn phim game show. I was previously the Senior Editor for I’ve also written for The A.V. Club, Kotaku, and Paste Magazine. I’m currently working on a book about the history of đoạn phim games, and I’m the reason everything you think you know about Street Sharks is a lie.

2. Get Swole With Mega Evolutions


3. Pokemon Stay Indoors


Pokemon Go"s appeal is its fantasy of catching Pokemon in the real world. Unfortunately, if you go out into the real world these days, you might also catch a deadly virus. If you can, you should not only work from home, but trò chơi from home. Lớn keep its players safe and healthy, Niantic has responsibly introduced alternative ways to lớn play the Pokemon Go at home.

In the shop, you can buy Remote Raid Passes for 100 PokeCoins each. These let you virtually team up with other players lớn take down and capture impressive legendary Pokemon, most recently Giratina.

To join a Remote Raid, tap the Nearby button on the bản đồ and then the Raid button. You’ll see various Raid lobbies. Select whichever one you want, use your Remote Raid Pass, & forget about the real-world danger.

4. Pokemon Go Home


Pokemon home is Nintendo’s latest cloud-based service for storing all of your Pokemon và moving them across games. If you’re really committed, you can take a creature you caught during the game Boy Advance era and move it all the way into Pokemon Sword và Shield.

The process is much simpler for Pokemon Go players. Connecting khổng lồ Pokemon trang chủ is as easy as going into Settings, và wirelessly connecting your game to your Nintendo Switch. Then launch the Pokemon trang chủ app on Switch & transfer your monsters between devices.

There’s also a Pokemon trang chủ app for sản phẩm điện thoại where you can trade Pokemon, receive gifts, và read news.

Pokemon trang chủ lets you store 30 monsters for free. For $16 per year that number shoots up khổng lồ 6,000. Your Pokemon don’t get deleted if you stop paying but you won’t be able khổng lồ access them until you renew your subscription.

5. Turn Off AR to lớn Make Capturing Easier


Capturing Pokemon with AR on is part of the fun, especially when the pocket monsters pop up ininappropriate places, but it"s way easier to capture Pokemon without worrying about aiming your phone camera. Plus, strangers, for the most part, don"t lượt thích having phones pointed at them. Why not turn off AR & relieve them of social anxiety?You can vị that by tapping the AR toggle when you"re capturing wild Pokemon. Pokemon will then sit still on a grassy field, though they will occasionally hop or gyrate to lớn make capturing difficult. But at least this way you can focus on just the Pokemon, và not worry about reorienting the camera or suffering the death stares of real-life NPCs.

When capturing wild Pokemon, you can throw a curveball to lớn gain more XP. All you have to vì chưng is jiggle the ball! Jiggle it good! Basically, you tap the ball, hold it, & spin it around clock- or counterclockwise until it sparkles. Once it"s shining up, toss it and boom! If you capture the critter you"ll get a curveball XP bonus.But wait, there"s more: Where you throw the curveball depends on how you throw after the spin. Apparently, it helps khổng lồ throw the ball in the opposite direction of the initial spin. So, if you"re spinning it clockwise, you"ll want to lớn toss the ball to the left. How the ball moves after a spin seems pretty random, though.Supposedly, if you botch a toss you can tap the Pokeball when it bounces or rolls away in order lớn retrieve it. But staffers here have been tapping away and trying this out for a while, with no real indication that it works. But some people online have say it works for them. Huge, if true.

CP simply means Combat Power, and it"s the number above each wild Pokemon. It indicates their battle prowess, và as you gain more experience points (or XP) and level up as a Trainer, the CP of the Pokemon you find will become higher.In an individual Pokemon"s stat screen, you"ll see a semi-circle at the top. The part that"s bold with a dot at the kết thúc indicates that Pokemon"s current maximum Combat Point potential. Some Pokemon have higher maximum CP than others. For example, an intimidating, spiky Pinsir will likely be stronger than a tiny, wormy Caterpie. But, if you find a 50 CP Pikachu, that doesn"t mean it"s stronger than a trăng tròn CP one. For efficiency"s sake, though, you"ll probably want to Power Up the 50 CP Pikachu with Candies.Whether you power nguồn Up or Evolve a Pokemon first is up to lớn you. Some believe powering up a "Mon before evolving it results in even higher CP, but there"s no confirmation of that yet. But, your Pokemon"s max CP rises along with your Trainer level, so don"t neglect those curve balls (more on that shortly) và be sure lớn visit Pokestops whenever you can! Get dat XP!Extra Note: It looks like your Pokemon"s weight/size (XL or XS) could affect their stats, like CP, HP, and dodge speed. Again, there"s a lot of rumor mongering & unconfirmed info out there at the moment, so that could be a bunch of Bouffalant hockey.

You might catch a few different Staryus that are all around the same CP, but take a look at the two moves each Pokemon has when you catch it, và the power màn chơi of each move. If you catch a 98CP Staryu & a 105 CP Staryu, và the slightly weaker one has Water Gun và Psybeam, while the stronger one only knows how khổng lồ Tackle and toàn thân Slam, go for the better move set.Next to each move you"ll also see how much damage it does, along with a blue power meter for the second (more powerful) move, which indicates when your Pokemon"s power nguồn move is ready khổng lồ rock in a battle. Better moves, more power, better Pokemon. You can always biến hóa some CP points later.

While visiting Pokestops, you"ll probably pick up some eggs, from which Pokemon hatch. But first, you need khổng lồ incubate them, & then walk around. To bởi vì that, go to your Pokemon collection, and in the upper-right you"ll see an Eggs tab. Tap that, choose an egg, then an incubator. Then you walk around & wait for the hatch.Here"s some advice: Don"t waste your time incubating the 2K (kilometer) eggs unless you really want more low-level Pokemon (though that isn"t a bad way to get a starter you missed or snag yourself a Pikachu). The 5K eggs can net you some decent monsters, such as Cubone, Porygon, Machops, or Sandshrew. The 10K eggs get you more powerful, uncommon ones lượt thích Snorlax. Take a look atthis handy infographic(Opens in a new window)for a more in-depth egg breakdown, courtesy of Reddit.

You can hatch eggs if you"re on a bicycle, bus, or train. The tiện ích just registers that you"re moving; it won"t actually care that you"re not walking. So, you can hop on your bike và keep the app open to not only get some exercise, but hatch some sweet Snorlax bros, as well. Another great way lớn incubate và hatch eggs is khổng lồ go for a run!To pick up more incubators, you can either buy them outright in the real-money shop or by getting lucky at Pokestops, though they are rare. You also gain more incubators and other rarer items as you cấp độ up. And remember: Pokestops replenish every 10 to 15 minutes, which is remarkably fast for a free-to-play mobile game!By the way, 5 kilometers is about equal to lớn 3.1 miles. Pokemon Go, not only does it bring us together, it educates.

We explained inour primerthat razz berries are items you can feed a Pokemon khổng lồ slow it down before you capture it. Updates have introduced multiple types of berries that each have different effects.Nanab Berries: Use these berries to slow down a wild Pokemon"s movements. Strategic use of these can be key to capturing a particularly elusive "Mon.Pinap Berries: These double the amount of Candy you get as a reward if your next attempt lớn capture a Pokemon succeeds. It"s a bit of a risk though, because if you fail khổng lồ capture your next target the berry goes lớn waste.Razz Berries: Mechanics haven"t changed here. Razz Berries can still be fed to lớn a wild Pokemon to lớn make it easier to catch.Golden Razz Berries: lượt thích their less shiny cousins, the Golden Razz Berries have the same function of making it easy lớn capture wild Pokemon, but are much more powerful.You can use berries in tandem with a stronger Pokeball (especially once you start leveling up and unlocking Great Balls and Ultra Balls) lớn catch particularly feisty or extremely rare Pokemon that cross your path. However, don"t use multiple berries at a time since their effects don"t stack.One of the aspiring trainers right here in the Labs caught themselves a Dragonair doing just that. Feed the Pokemon a razz berry, take out a Great Ball, give it some good arc on your throw, và catching just got a whole lot easier.

The best way to grind XP is to capture multiple low-level Pokemon, pay attention lớn the number of candy they require to lớn evolve, & wait until you have enough Candy for multiple evolutions at the same time. By capturing the same type of Pokémon over & over you gain more Stardust & Candy. So, don"t think ill of all those Doduos, Caterpies, và Weedles! They"re potentially useful because you can transfer duplicates, which will earn you 1 candy of that Pokemon type. Then, use a Lucky Egg và evolve all of the Pokemon at the same time lớn gain double the amount of XP. Pidgeys are especially pretty good for this.Some words of wisdom on Stardust & Candy, though: think carefully about what Pokemon you want khổng lồ power up now, and which ones you want lớn save for after you evolve. The more you power up a Pokemon you eventually plan on evolving, the longer it"ll take you to collect the 25, 50, or 100 candies you need to lớn evolve that little guy and see the Pokemon"s CP skyrocket anyway. Pro tip: evolve the Pokemon first, then power it up. Better khổng lồ use your stardust on Pokemon that are finished evolving or only have one khung to optimize your battle lineup, with a bunch of even stronger Pokemon waiting in the wings, piling up candies to lớn take your squad to lớn the next level once they evolve.Also khổng lồ consider is that with the recent update, you get more Stardust and Candy when the Pokemon is higher in the evolution chain. The rewards are as follows:First: 100 Stardust, 3 CandySecond: 300 Stardust, 5 CandyThird: 500 Stardust, 10 Candy

Capture a Pokemon: 100 XPCapture Bonuses:Nice: 10 XPGreat: 100 XPExcellent: 100 XPCurveball: 10 XPHatch a Pokemon:2K: 200 XP5K: 500 XP10K: 1000 XPEvolve a Pokemon: 500 XPRegister a new Pokemon in your Pokedex: 500 XPCheck a Pokestop: 50 XP or 100 XP (if six or more items)Training at a Gym: Depends on successBattle Pokemon at a Gym: Depends on successUsing a Lucky Egg doubles the XP in the aforementioned activities for 30 minutes. It can be paired with a Double XP sự kiện to get a maximum of four times your usual XP if you really want to max out your bonuses.So far, it looks lượt thích the maximum màn chơi you can reach in Pokemon Go is 50. You gain numerous rewards for each level gain, including Potions, Incense, Revives, Egg Incubators, and, eventually, Super Potions, Razz Berries, Hyper Potions, Great Balls, và Ultra Balls. The elusive Master Ball has yet lớn be glimpsed, but if you fulfill your destiny of finding and beating the Elite 4, maybe you can be the chosen one who"s granted the ultimate Pokemon power and enters Cerulean Cave to lớn find your Mewtwo.

Wily Reddit users found a way into the game’s code to lớn figure out how Incense works. In case you need a reminder, Incense covers your Trainer in a pink, fluffy fragrance that attracts wild Pokemon to your location for 30 minutes. But you can’t just be complacent & sit there waiting for Pokemon. If you stay still, you’ll only see one Pokemon every five minutes, which isn’t a great way to lớn spend your time. Instead, take a walk & you’ll lure one Pokemon every 200 meters.

If you want khổng lồ rest on your laurels, then the Lunar Module is the thắng lợi you want. It acts the same as the incense, except it attracts Pokemon khổng lồ your position. A nice option for those who don’t feel lượt thích huffing down the block on a hot summer day.

Just like in the core, handheld Pokemon games (or real-life animals) certain Pokemon types only dwell in certain locations. Bởi vì you want to lớn collect a lot of Magikarps lớn evolve one of them into a fearsome Gyrados? Or fetch yourself a Squirtle? Then head down lớn the river, lake, or reservoir, because that"s where Water-type Pokemon will appear! Want to lớn catch Beedrill, Bulbasaur, or other Bug- & Plant-type critters? Take a stroll through the woods. & big-city dwellers may wonder why there are so many Electric-type Pokemon like Magnemite and Voltorb around. That"s because they lượt thích to hang around electric billboards (maybe).

If you remember the original Pokemon cartoon, you may recall the three Eevee Brothers, who each owned one of Eevee"s evolutions: a Flareon, Jolteon, và Vaporeon. If you nickname your Eevee one of the brothers" punny names, then it will evolve into your desired evolution!

Want a Flareon? Then name it Pyro.

Want a Jolteon? Name it Sparky!

Jonesing for a Vaporeon? Then điện thoại tư vấn it Rainer.

This only works once per evolution type, however. Still, it"s an almost-guaranteed way to lớn evolve one of your Eevees. Be sure you check Eevee"s silhouette before you confirm the transformation khổng lồ ensure you get the evolution you want.

Niantic has since added this unique name trick to lớn all other Eevee evolution types:

Linnea evolves Eevee into leaf-type Leafeon.

Rea evolves Eevee into ice-type Glaceon.

Sakura evolves Eevee into psychic-type Espeon.

Tamao evolves Eevee into dark-type Umbreon.

Kira evolves Eevee into fairy-type Sylveon

If you"re anything like us, you shoot from the hip và let Pokeballs fly where they may. And, if you"re anything lượt thích us, eventually, you"re going to lớn run out of Pokeballs that way. And if you stroll by a Pokestop, chances are your bag will be full and you will be unable lớn collect more Pokeballs! Well, don"t let that stop you. Just xuất hiện your inventory và chuck some potions. Chances are you don"t need 99 of every Potion type, so get rid of some and you"ll get your Pokeballs back in no time…so long as you stroll by more Pokestops, or wait around for them to lớn refresh.

That"s right. This is some advanced stuff. Just lượt thích in the chip core games, there are hidden stats called Individual Values, or IVs, that affect a Pokemon"s strength. Wild Pokemon IVs are randomly determined, so that Pikachu with high CP và HP that you caught may actually—ultimately!—evolve into a weaker Raichu than a Pikachu with lower CP và HP, but higher IVs. That"s why it"s important lớn catch as many Pokemon as you can, so you can whittle them down to lớn thebest of the best(Opens in a new window).If this all sounds confusing, don"t worry about it. Just plug in your Pokemon"s CP, HP, và the Stardust needed lớn evolve it into thisIV Calculator(Opens in a new window). With that, you can figure out exactly which of your Pokemon to lớn evolve. This is especially helpful if you have multiple candidates khổng lồ evolve but a limited amount of Candy. It"s like the Eugenics Wars of the 1990s, but with Snorlax!

If you"re just starting out, you may notice gyms that are blue, red, or yellow. & you"ve probably figured out that you can"t vì chưng anything with gyms yet! That"s because you need lớn be at màn chơi 5. Once you are, visit a gym & join one of three teams: Team Mystic (blue), Team Valor (red), or Team Instinct (yellow). Each team has a leader: Blanche for blue, Candela for red, & Spark for yellow. Not only that, each team represents one of the three Legendary Birds: Articuno for blue, Moltres for red, and Zapdos for yellow.

Once you reach level 5, visit a gym, and choose a team, you can do a few things, like battle other Pokemon from other Trainers. If the thể hình is the same màu sắc as you, you can battle the Pokemon stored there & replace it with yours so you can become a Defender (more on that soon). Or, if you visit an opposing thể hình claimed by another team, you can battle for supremacy.First, you can pick six Pokemon lớn take into battle. Then, you"ll face off against the weakest creature at the gym & work your way to the strongest. If you beat the gym, you take it over for your team! If not, you faint. Then, you have lớn go into your inventory and heal your Pokemon with Revives và Potions. You need lớn heal them, otherwise fainted Pokemon can"t participate in battle.

Fighting in Pokemon Go is a bigger mess than Brock"s love life. You"re supposed to be able to lớn swipe left and right khổng lồ dodge the incoming attacks of opposing Pokemon. You can time the dodge by watching the opponent"s attack animation. If you have decent cell service, và a bit of luck, you should even be able lớn dodge special attacks. You"re also supposed khổng lồ tap your opponent over and over to lớn attack. Attacks" effectiveness is based on the rock-paper-scissors system of strengths và weaknesses found in the core Pokemon games. That means fire is weak against water, grass is weak against fire, water is weak against grass. You can kiểm tra what type your Pokemon is in its bio, or refer to thishandy-dandy chart(Opens in a new window).But, the Pokemon Go app"s performance issues turn fights into random kerfuffles. Your best bet is to lớn have a ton of potions and revives at the ready in case you need lớn revive và heal fainted Pokemon, & just tap away, và tap & hold once in a while lớn unleash your Pokemon"s special attacks, which consumes some special meter (which you can also check up on in that creature"s bio).

When you come across a vacant gym, or a gym claimed by your team, you can showroom your Pokemon lớn the roster by tapping the gym, and then tapping the icon on the bottom left. However, once you assign a Pokemon to lớn a gym, you are genuinely leaving it there. You won"t be able to vày battle with it at other gyms. For that reason, it"s a good idea khổng lồ leave your second-strongest Pokemon defending a gym, while you keep your most powerful thể hình for attacking rival gyms. An easy way khổng lồ figure out who"s your strongest is by resorting your roster by highest CP. Just go into your Pokemon collection, tap the lower right icon (it may be an A-Z, heart icon, or a clock), then tap Combat Power.

So you’ve captured the gym & put your best team in it. You’re set, right? There’s no way someone is going lớn take it from you. That used khổng lồ be the case, but with the latest update things have changed. Now you have to lớn take into account motivation, which is your Pokemon’s willingness lớn fight translated in combat power. Every day you hold a gym, the CP of your Pokemon drops. Once it hits zero, your Pokemon get kicked out of the thể hình unless you feed berries to lớn each one holding it. Lớn make matters worse, Pokemon with CP above 3,000 thua kém motivation faster. This ensures a more dynamic map, but also makes it harder to lớn hold gyms. That’s why you’ll want to lớn keep yourself well stocked with berries so you can keep your Pokemon in fighting shape.

Now that you"ve got a Pokemon defending a gym, go to the in-game Shop, tap the Shield icon & get không lấy phí Coins và Stardust. Coins are in-game currency that you can use to lớn buy items lượt thích Pokeballs, Potions, và even bigger thành quả bags. You can also buy coins with real-world money! What, did you think there were no micro-transactions in innocent little Pokémon Go? Of course, the only real way to play for không lấy phí is to acquire Coins by assigning a Pokemon to defend a gym. Pressing the Shield will get you 10 coins & 500 Stardust per each Pokemon of yours defending that gym. However, you need to wait 21 hours before you can tap the Shield again! So be sure to lớn defend the gym, or place Pokemon in multiple gyms! Ah, don"t you love Energy mechanics in điện thoại games?

Battling at a gym can change that gym"s prestige level. Basically, the higher the gym"s prestige level , the more Pokemon can stay there. Alternatively, you need to take down an opposing team"s gym prestige màn chơi down lớn zero before you can claim it for your team. If your team claims, or has claimed a gym, you can battle the Pokemon stationed there to lớn increase that gym"s prestige level. Raise the prestige high enough, và you can leave up to lớn 6 Pokemon at that gym as long as they"re not of the same type. So if you want to, but can"t leave a Pokemon at a friendly gym, you"ll have to fight khổng lồ raise the level. You"ll want khổng lồ fight all the time, because you gain XP for each fracas, even if you lose!

You can select a Pokemon to lớn travel alongside you. Does it actually walk with you on the main screen? No, but it does stand next lớn you in the profile screen and a little icon displaying your chosen Pokemon shows up next khổng lồ your avatar icon on the field.To actually select a buddy Pokemon, you need khổng lồ tap on the picture of your Trainer in the lower left corner of the main screen. Then tap on the menu button on the lower left. Tap on the Buddy icon between the Journal and Customize options. Then, tap on the Pokemon you want as your Buddy.Note: On the Pokemon screen, you"ll see a speech bubble icon next lớn the Pokemon you chose as your Buddy, so you can keep track of what you"re Pokemon are up to.

Go for walks! No, really, now that you have a designated Buddy you should go on strolls. Similar to lớn egg-hatching, you can gain Candy for your buddy the more kilometers you rack up. Interestingly, different Pokemon require you walk different distances. For example, you need to walk 3 kilometers before you get a Candy for Slowpoke. You only get one candy after walking that specific distance, though.You can find out more about your Buddy"s progress by tapping the Trainer profile icon, then tapping the vị trí cao nhất of the screen, where your Trainer and Buddy are hanging out. At the vị trí cao nhất of the screen you"ll see the total distance traveled. In the middle, you"ll see your Buddy (tap him for a yell!). At the bottom, there"s a gauge that shows how far you still need lớn walk for a Candy.

To replace your Buddy, click on the Trainer avatar picture on the main screen, then tap the Pokemon Buddy on the Trainer profile screen. After that, tap the Swap icon on the lower right. You"ll get a message that asks if you"re absolutely sure you want to lớn swap buddies. Tap Yes, if you"re a fair weather friend. But beware; you"ll thua trận any progress you have made if with your Buddy if you swap too soon! You"ll want lớn swap Pokemon Buddies out after walking the full distance for a Candy.Also, you should not evolve your Buddy, at least not until after you"re done walking & collecting Candy for it. When you evolve your Pokemon, that creature"s Candy resets. So, to repeat: Do. Not. Evolve. Your. Buddy. Wait until you got enough Candy, then evolve.

Raid battles are arguably Pokemon Go’s biggest feature. Once you hit màn chơi 20, you can access raid events in which a powerful boss khủng Pokemon appears at certain times of the day. If there"s a raid happening close lớn you, you get a notification & have the chance to lớn join. But if you walk right up lớn a gym, you’ll be disappointed when the bouncer at the door asks for a Raid Pass or Premium Raid Pass and you don"t have one. These can be gotten by going khổng lồ a gym and spinning the photo disc. Only one raid pass can be used per day, otherwise, you need to purchase a Premium Raid Pass from the siêu thị to participate in raid battles more often.

Victory. You & your team have done the hard work & taken down the trùm cuối Pokemon. Balloons fall from the ceiling, the fireworks go off, và the credits roll. Not so fast. There are more rewards lớn be had. Once you beat the Boss, you & your group are rewarded with potions, revives, and coins. You also get Premier Balls, which are the only kind of Pokeball you can use lớn capture the Boss. The amount of Premier Balls awarded depends on how well you did in the battle, và they disappear after your attempt to lớn capture the quái vật is over, so you want lớn be careful and take your time. Make sure to use lots of berries lớn improve your chances. Once all the Premier Balls run out, the trùm cuối Pokemon flees.

Like location, weather plays a role on the kinds of Pokemon you encounter. On certain days, you"re more likely lớn encounter particular types. For instance, a rainy day will result in more spawns of water-type Pokemon & also increase their strength. Plus, when you capture them you get bonus Stardust.Here"s a breakdown of what each weather type boosts:

Clear/Sunny: Fire, Grass, and Ground

Partly Cloud: Normal and Rock

Cloudy: Fairy, Fighting, & Poison

Rain: Water, Electric, & Bug

Snow: Ice and Steel

Fog: Dark & Ghost

Windy: Dragon, Flying, & Psychic

Field research tasks are essentially a các mục of quests given to you when you spin a Pokestop, like, "Use 5 Berries khổng lồ help catch Pokemon," or, "Catch 10 Pokemon with Weather Boost." Completing them successfully gives you various bonuses including Stardust, items, và encounters with rare Pokemon lượt thích Jynx.There are currently three kinds of tasks:

Field Research: These are basic goals with a single objective. You get one of these a day và they"re usually something simple lượt thích spinning a Pokestop.

Special Research: These tasks are more story-based và give you multiple goals that require several steps to lớn complete, lượt thích catching và transferring a Pokemon.

Research Breakthrough: These tasks are based on collecting stamps & give you rewards lượt thích Stardust, items, và rare Pokemon encounters.

You can only have up to lớn three tasks at a time, but don"t worry, you can trash a task if you think you can"t complete it successfully. Clearing a task allows you to pick up a new one.
