Pokémon Go: Tips and Tricks


You all know the game that took the whole world by storm…you’ve guessed it. Pokémon Go is a game which is an obvious craze in Singapore. To help you become a pro in this great game, I’m sharing you some tips.

I’m in the average range as a Pokémon hunter. My highest CP (Combat Power) Pokémon is a 1572-CP Snorlax which has Lick and Hyper Beam as its attacks.  I’m at level 21 at the moment and my name is Puncher Albert. Fortunately, I don’t do all the work to catch Pokémons in the wild as my dad helps me too. Besides, it’s his phone so he could do what he wants. The good thing is, rare Pokémons sometimes appear at his workplace, Bras Basah.

Firstly, if you just started the game, you have a choice whether to log in via your Google account or you could also make your own Pokémon trainer account. Once that is done, the starting screen will tell you to be aware of your surroundings which is very important as there had been cases of people getting injured like being hit by cars while looking at their phones. Once the screen loads, you have finally began your career as a Pokémon trainer!

Tips for 1-5 level Trainers

1: Ignore the three starter Pokémon (Bulbasour, Squirtle and Charmander) and continue walking. Soon enough you will come across Pikachu which you could catch.

2: On the bottom right hand corner, you would see a sightings list. That means Pokémon included in the list are 700 to 1000 feet away from you.

3: To incubate eggs, go to the menu and click the Pokémon button. After, that swipe to the left and you could see all the eggs you have.

4: You could not battle in Gyms until level 5. So, try to catch as many Pokémons as you could before you reach that level.

Tips for 5-12 level Trainers

1: You have a choice of joining three teams, named Instinct, Valor and Mystic. I suggest you join the best team, Mystic led by Blanche. (Unfortunately, I joined Team Instinct!)

2: If you have enough Eevee candies name it! If you want to evolve your Eevee into a Jolteon, name it sparky. If you want Flareon, name it Pyro and if you prefer Vaporeon, call it Rainer! (Does not work always)

3: Use lucky eggs when you are halfway through a level or about to hatch or evolve Pokemons.

4: It is best to battle in gyms once you get 1000 CP+ Pokémon.

5: You could get water type Pokémon in parks and grass type Pokémon in parks!

Tips for 12-20 level Trainers

1: You finally have Great Balls! Use them to catch rarer Pokemon!

2: If you battle in a gym, use your weaker Pokemon first so that when you’re facing the gym boss, you’d have strong Pokemon ready to thrash that guy down!

3: When fighting, dodge for every 2 hits you make. (It really works as I can beat 1800 CP+ Pokémon with that method!)

4: You will only get ultra balls once you reach level 20.

That’s all the tips I know for now. I will update you when I reach level 30!
