5 Tips and tricks To Play Pokémon Go

Pokemon is a Nintendo franchise. Players go everywhere to catch monsters called Pokemon which could be rats, dragons, snakes or any other creature and use these animals to fight each other. The goal is to catch them all.

However, Pokemon Go is not for Nintendo’s handheld consoles. It is a free download for Android and iOS devices and is different from previous Pokemon games as it mixes real-world elements with the game. However, the goal remains the same, i.e. to catch them all.

Pokemon Go uses your phone’s GPS and clock to decide which Pokemon will appear in the game. If you are in a park, bugs and grasshoppers will appear. If you are near a water body, water animals will appear. Players have to navigate the real world to catch them.
