Here’s how to read the tracker — If you click on a Pokéstop representing the Pokémon you want, the game will point out where it is on the map. Next to the Pokéstop, you will see a little bubble with some footprints. The number of footprints determines how close the Pokémon is to the Pokéstop.
To catch the Pokémon — go to the Pokéstop and walk around. The Pokémon you are tracking should appear. You will need to hurl Pokéballs at it to capture it.
