I don’t know about you, but walking to work, around my neighborhood, or running errands doesn’t elicit much excitement. In less than a week, Pokemon Go has become the number one mobile game with over 7 million downloads (you can download it for your iPhone or Droid). Just trying to find all the different Pokemon in the game will take you quite some time (there are 151), and players are rewarded for exploring new areas of their town or city, as different Pokemon appear in different locations.
Pokemon Go is a great reminder that exercise can be enjoyable and automatic, fueled by fun instead of by that nagging feeling in our heads. More than that, you hatch the eggs you find at Poke Stops into Pokemon by… wait for it… walking! Pokemon Go is easy and fun to work into a day exploring your city or hanging in the park, but you can also integrate your Pokemon training with some more advanced physical training! Spend some time walking and hatching eggs, and when you’re ready to take things up a notch, try the Pokemon Go Workout! If you catch a Pokemon around anything that you could safely do a chin-up from (playground equipment, most likely), then do chin-ups or jumping chin-ups!
Some of you might find yourself saying, “I don’t have kids to take around or friends who are interested in this stuff, what do I do?” We all know workout buddies can add accountability to any exercise routine.
I was at a concert this week and the employee at Will Call had his phone lying on the table with Pokemon Go running.
With Pokemon Go being a brand new game, we’ve assembled some pro-tips to arm you with the knowledge you need to become a master trainer in no time.
If you’re totally new, be sure to open up your game menu and in the upper right click on “tips”.
Finding Pokemon hot spots: Pokemon tend to congregate around high traffic areas (malls, bus stops, restaurants) as well as points of interests (statues, parks). Throwing Technique, Bonuses, and Power Ups: For less immersiveness but a slight in-game advantage, turn off your AR (switch in upper right corner) when throwing Pokeballs. Curveball bonus: We’ve tried a lot of these techniques and found a tenuous connection at best. Nice, Great, and Excellent Throw Bonus: At an extra 10, 50, and 100 XP bonus respectively, these are the ones to go after! Looking to level up FAST? A lucky egg doubles your experience bonus from all actions for 30 minutes. Your catch bonus will also be doubled, and you should be reeling ‘em in quickly thanks to the lure and incense. Now spend the next 30 minutes catching swarms of Pokemon and frantically evolving everything you can.
Time of day makes a difference: Did you know that some different Pokemon can come out at night! Gyms and Battles: There is no inherent advantage to any team color, pick whichever one you want. Just an FYI, the tracking seems to be glitched at the moment (please comment and let me know if this has been fixed tho! I once saw a grown man in downtown Brooklyn, NY so intent upon his phone that he stepped into the street in front of an ambulance, which had both lights and sirens running. I’m as nerdy as the next nerd, but I guess I’m old, how about just enjoying being outside?
Good point on practicing curveballs, but many beginners will still want to go straight ball for a while. Good point on mastering a curveball, the tips was in regards to trying to chase after the bonus points associated with them.
We’ll keep updating the PGo wiki page that Alek has linked to below as everyone here at NF develops into awesome trainers! The zero, one, and two footprints seem to have disappeared from the radar for now, but I still think the placement of the Pokemon on your radar (upper left being the closest) can help you find nearby ones for now.
Great article and tips, but I think you may be mistaken about the compass for tracking: As near as I can tell, tapping the compass just switches between pointing the camera North and whichever direction your phone is facing. In fact, I might go and download it now, just to check it out and get a better feel for the concept.
I play it at the gym (3 pokestops and a poke gym), but I’m not about to walk around in the 95 degree heat this summer.
Pokemon Go has turned walking around our communities into a half scavenger hunt, half RPG game that is incredibly engaging. The rub is that you actually have to physically get out and walk around to find these creatures. Those aren’t just buildings: Now they’re refueling stops (Poke Stops) with sick l00t on the quest to catch em all. As you level up and your trainer level increases, you’ll need to do more and more reps of each exercise. A natural conversation started on what Pokemon were running around the area, and he clued me in as to where nearby Poke Stops were.
Keep the radar open and if the Pokemon you’re tracking moves to the left or up on the grid, that means you’re getting closer! Make sure you transfer the weaker Pokemon in for candies, but save enough that you can evolve them. Or you can find one someone else has used (the Poke Stop will be spouting a pink-purple confetti).
You’ll double your EXP bonus to +2000 for a Pokemon you didn’t have before and to +1000 for one you already had. We think incubators are your best bet: the more incubators you have, the more benefit you get when you walk around. When training or battling at a gym, pick your Pokemon based on the other Pokemon weaknesses.
Even if you’re not, I hope we rekindled some sense of curiosity and imagination in you… that exercise doesn’t have to be a chore, but it can be a pleasant side effect of just getting out and having fun. Wouldn’t you rather get outside and play a game, instead of staying inside and pounding away on a treadmill? Yesterday while hunting I was constantly having to close and reopen my app because the radar would freeze. And even if a Pokestop or gym is a church or other private establishment, there’s a wide enough radius provided around you where they can be activated that you can be located on the sidewalk outside, or even on the road if driving. Each Poke Stop has a brief refresh period before you can use it again, so it pays to walk around and hit up as many as you can find! We want to be careful not to integrate the game into our existing habits, but to use it as a means to build a healthier life.
There are also a TON of local Pokemon Go groups popping up on Facebook, Meetup, and other social media hubs. Find one in your area and get out there! Some gamers also find throwing a Pokeball with their index finger instead of their thumb to be more accurate.
And sure, Pokemon Go might not replace your current workout regimen anytime soon, but it can be an excellent (and fun!) addition.
I on my way home and ended up walking another 90 minutes trying to track down a Blastiose that popped up near me (unfortunately the servers crashed right when I found him!!!) I was out alone but ended up having a troupe of about 10 people running around everywhere trying to find this rare pokemon! This is something we shouldn’t ignore just because we see through white privilege lenses. I’ve never seen a cop while playing Pokemon and I doubt that they care about a girl staring at her phone on the sidewalk.
I usually go to my local park Pokestop during my nightly walk, but it gets activated merely by me standing on the sidewalk next to it. Find a Pokemon you’re interested in catching & check out the countdown time until it disappears, run to it, catch it, repeat!
Whereas most video games keep us inside and sedentary, Pokemon Go integrates a physical and social dynamic. Generally, you’ll want to evolve your Pokemon first, as they get an enormous, permanent boost in strength. Getting in more steps everyday is always recommended for improved physical health, and keeping a sense of kid-like wonder is sure to improve your mental health too.
I’m not saying give it up, but PLEASE realise that this is a luxury in which some people do not get to partake.
I live in a college town and taking a run to the popular park I met college, high school and middle school kids, Parents playing with their kids or just pushing their babies in strollers, Men, Women, some more fit other not as fit. If you don’t have someone to play with going out alone and meeting people is extremely easy!

    Post camera work and boring in your samsung clearly cranks up the saturation and sharpening.
