Tips for locating Pokémon

The most basic way to find Pokémon near you is to wander the vicinity and use the locator map. The “nearby” function often works well to alert you when Pokémon are within catching distance. If there aren’t any Pokémon nearby, you have three obvious and easy options:

 
  • Visit a nearby PokéStop. PokéStops are the blue markers that show you where to go in the real world to get to your next Pokémon sighting. They also are kind of like supply depots for the game, where you can pick up more Poké Balls and eggs for hatching.
  • Use an incense item in your location. This will draw out nearby Pokémon like a moth to a flame.
  • Visit a nearby PokéStop and either piggyback off someone else’s lure or attach your own lure to the PokéStop. The lure is designed to, er, lure nearby Pokémon to the stop for the following 15 minutes — though it might also lure nearby Pokémon Goplayers looking to take advantage of your lure.

If you really want to find rare Pokémon, however, you’re going to have to travel. Luckily, there are ways to expedite your road trips to make your Pokémon hunt count.

Tip: Get more Poké Balls and find more Pokémon at gas stations.

If you’re stuck and need more Poké Balls, one easy answer is to buy them. But if you can’t afford to buy more Poké Balls, you can also get more by going to a PokéStop.

However, rural areas often don’t have a lot of PokéStops. This can obviously be a problem not only because of the lack of Pokémon but because of the lack of Pokémon resources that PokéStops bring.

One easy solution? Gas stations. When you stop by to refill your tank, fire up thePokémon Go app. You’ll likely find a number of Pokémon and people setting lures there. Gas stations are particularly good places for rural players because they tend to draw a steady stream of people to one small location, meaning you’re likely to encounter multiple people on cellphones who are playing while they fill ‘er up.

 

Tip: Use the Ingress map.

You can find Pokémon anywhere in the wild, but they’re most likely going to be near PokéStops. So your real goal as a Pokémon Go trainer is to find all the PokéStops. Here, Pokémon fans are in luck because the PokéStops aren’t just PokéStops; they’re the leftover remnants of “portals” in an entirely different game called Ingress.

Ingress is the game developer Niantic built as a precursor to Pokémon Go. The functionality is similar, and the real-world maps of the two games are identical. Ingressplayers have already scouted out and tagged all the “portal” locations for Ingress. And when developer Niantic converted the Ingress “Intel” map into the new Pokémon Go map, it converted all of Ingress’s existing portals into brand new PokéStops.

That means all you have to do to find portals — I mean PokéStops — is sign up to play Ingress. Do this by downloading and installing the Ingress app on your phone and signing up for an Ingress account. Then log in and use the still-live Ingress Intel map that already helpfully has all the stops mapped. If you want to see the map from your desktop, you can also download a browser extension for Chrome and Firefox that modifies theIngress map with more Pokémon-specific details.

Tip: Check to see if your local team is mapping your area.

Local Pokémon trainers around the world have been marking PokéStops and gyms in their area using Google Maps. At times this has turned into something of an intense social project, but the result is that players wanting to hunt for rare Pokémon in their areas don’t have to hunt blindly in the urban wilderness.

While some websites like Pokecrew have been springing up to offer more detailed local map searching, the info on them is still spotty; your best bet is probably just to find a map in your area. Some known maps:

  • This team-sourced map of more than 4,000 Pokémon gyms and locations lets you search by location and type of Pokémon to find what’s near you. View the Reddit thread the players made for more info.
  • Melbourne, Australia (the detail here is jaw-dropping)
  • Arizona (mainly Phoenix and Scottsdale)
  • Brussels, Belgium
  • Toronto, Canada
  • Boston, Massachusetts
  • Butte, Montana
  • Charlotte, North Carolina
  • San Antonio, Texas (and a few other Texas hot spots)

Tip: Use the bus.

Many have tried to catch Pokémon while driving or biking, which is not actually safe. And since the game doesn’t reward you for traveling faster than 20 miles per hour or so,paying someone else to drive you around isn’t really practical.

The bus, however, is useful for a few Pokémon-related functions: locating new Pokémon and hatching eggs. Keep the Pokémon Go app running during your normal bus route and accomplish the dual job of finding new Pokémon at a slow, steady pace and keeping your eggs incubated.

If you must have someone drive you around, try to keep your car speed between 10 and 15 mph. This is to prevent the game from continually refreshing every 100 feet or so, which makes it kind of a pointless exercise otherwise.

While the app Game is still freshly new people are discovering all kinds of different mechanics and tricks to help you out. check out the other tips to become a Pokemon Master. How Does the Pokemon Go Nearby System Works.
