Are you Ash, Brock or Misty? Which Pokémon do you desire? The new game that has hit the world by storm: Pokémon Go. A childhood fad has come to life thanks to technology and smart phones/devices.
What is this new game that has people running through parks and into malls like crazy people? Those people are about to become Pokémon masters because they are capturing all the Pokémon that you aren’t.
PokéStops are there to provide eggs, pokeballs, potions and lure modules for luring wild Pokémon to you. Gyms are where trainers battle it out to see who is the better trainer and once beaten you take on their Pokémon and raise or lower the level of their gym.
As you move in the real world so too does your avatar on the game. You will be able to search for the various Pokémon using the map. Many of the Pokémon are specific to areas based on their type e.g. water Pokémon are found close to water.
Once you encounter a Pokémon, you may throw a pokéball at it by flicking it from the bottom of your screen towards the Pokémon. If successfully caught, based on what pokéball you use or what force you use, the Pokémon Go cheats then comes under your ownership. You’re on your way to becoming Ash.
There are currencies in the game that you can use: candies and stardust. You receive candies when you capture one and these candies depend on what evolution your Pokémon belongs to. Candies plus stardust, raise a Pokémon’s combat power (CP) which is displayed when you come into contact with one.
Candies are used to evolve or level up your Pokémon. Once you’re on track with your capturing you can do what Ash was famous for, send Pokémon to the professor to explain your new catches or free up some poké-space for new ones. Your end goal is to become the ultimate Pokémon master and collect and evolve all Pokémon to obtain the original 151 in the pokedex.
