How to catch a Pokémon with Gumtree

Gumtree How To Catch A Pokemon Go Sydney Map NEW

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard or read about the phenomenon that is Pokémon Go. The revival of the original game made popular by Nintendo just over 20 years ago is even more popular today. The basic premise is the same: catch and collect these little monsters and become the Pokémon master.

If you’re wondering how to catch a Pokémon GO, the game has an added element that gets people out and about exploring the world in search of the creatures with their smartphones.
Here are some tips on how to catch a Pokémon Go:

  1. With your GPS switched on and your phone screen visible, walk around until the game buzzes to tell you that there is a Pokémon nearby.
  2. As you’re traveling, you will have the opportunity to collect Poké Balls from Pokéstops along the way. These are essential for catching Pokémon.
  3. Keep your eye on the little leaves on your screen. They’ll tell you if there are Pokémon nearby.
  4. If you’re armed with Poké Balls, your map will show you the location of the Pokémon and you can tap your screen to go into catch mode.
  5. Swipe your screen to flick the Ball at your Pokémon, aim to hit inside the circle. The smaller the circle, the higher chance you will catch the Pokémon.
  6. Once your Pokémon is in sight, it will have a green, yellow or red target. The red circle is the most difficult to catch, with higher combat power and rarer species.

If you’re like most players, you’ll soon expand your knowledge of Pokémon GO and terms like Stardust, Candies, and Hatching will be a part of your new vocabulary. At a basic level though, the fun is in collecting as many creatures as you can.

The best way to do that is to expand your search area beyond your immediate home or work neighbourhood. Populated areas such as tourist attractions/landmarks, parks, sculptures and shopping centres are a bustling hive of Pokémons.  Some creatures only frequent certain areas while others may only come out at night.
