[Official]POKEMON GO HUNTING GROUP!
« on: August 09, 2016, 10:29:20 am »
~Hello PetalByters~

I created a whatsapp group for us! So we can go pokemon hunting together!

https://goo.gl/forms/SDaSvv9W8LDyXaXG3

It's my 2nd day playing and I've gotten about 76 different pokemons.
Rare ones I've caught/saw:
Omanyte - Near the Singapore ArtScience Musuem
Kabuto - Marina Bay Sands Shoppes
Dragonite - Esplanade Amphitheatre
Aerodactyl - Mcdonalds in Marina Square\

Do contribute to the list too! I haven't gotten my pikachu!

How to play Pokemon Go:
First create your character.

To catch a pokemon: When a pokemon appears on your screen, tap on it to trigger a battle. You will then need to throw your pokeball at it to catch it. Tap on the ball and swipe towards the pokemon and lift off your finger. If it hits the pokemon, it will then enter the pokeball.
However, the pokemon will sometimes swipe your pokeball away or jump, causing you to miss. Different pokemon spawns in different distance, some will require you to throw very far, some very near, some just right about in the centre. Also tougher pokemons will also still to move around your screen making it harder to catch.
Tough pokemons will frequently break free from the pokeball multiple times before submitting. when you're about to throw your pokeball, you can see a circle crosshair that is either green/green-yellow/yellow/orange/red. This indicates how tough it is to catch the pokemon you just encounter.
Tips on making it easier to catch: There are Razz Berry which will make the pokemon easier to catch. When you are level 12 and above, you will also unlock Great Pokeballs which are stronger. They will lower the difficulty of catching the pokemon (red->orange, orange->yellow etc).

How to Move Your Character in the Virtual World?
You move your character by moving yourself! Different areas will spawn different pokemons. Pokemon spawn randomly on the map. So go Catch em' All!

Pokestops/Gym
Pokestops are those blue blocks on the map. As you go closer, it turns into some circular dish. Tap on it to spin it, and it will drop items like pokeballs/potions/eggs/revives. It will then turn purple, and will need about 3-4 minutes before it turns blue again for you to spin it. You can affix module on it, like lure module to attract pokemons to that pokestop. If you see a pokestop will purplish-pink leaves falling, a lure is active. You will see people start crowding that area as pokemon will start appearing every 3-4 minutes.

Gyms are where you fight with other pokemon trainers. There can be up to 3 pokemons in the gym by the same team. And you can use 6 pokemons to compete. If you win, you can takeover the gym, and should you successful defend it, you can earn pokemon coins which can be used to buy items.

Best Tips
Look for areas where there are 2 or more pokestops that are very close to each other. That way you don't have to travel a lot to spin, and also most likely people will place lures in them, so you will see tons of pokemons appearing.

Good spots: Marina Bay Sands, Esplanade, Ion, Singapore ArtScience Musuem. There are 3 or more pokestops in these area. And the lures in these area are almost permanently active.

I thought the aim of the game is to evolve the creatures you caught?  Maybe can crossbreed, I'm not sure..
