Soo... Would you mind helping me out a little? Is it just walking around aimlessly or is there a way to see where the shops and gyms (you can train the Pokémon there? What does "defended" mean?)

Is it merely luck to get Pokémon (and esp. "better" ones)? And can you get all if them or is it somehow limited? How do you fight? :D


I'm waiting for the official release but I haven't played (I'm an avid Pokemon gamer so I play the main DS games much more often), but from what I know you can claim certain places as your gym, and once you've claimed it someone else can challenge you for it. The Pokemon show up at random, for now there are only the first 151 but they do plan on expanding it.

Here's a guide from the best Pokemon site there is.

You can access gyms (and fight) only after you reach level 5 and pick a team. Gyms can be captured by the 3 teams and you can leave one of your pokemon in one of your team's gyms to defend it.

The "nearby" thing in the bottom right of the screen shows you which pokemon are near and the approximate distance (1-3 footprints, each footprint is around 100-200m but you get no indication of the direction). Your location influences how many and which pokemon you find. You can find anything anywhere, but if you're near the sea you're more likely to find water pokemon for example. Also at night you get more fairy pokemon. I think the spawn rate is also influenced by location. If you're among a bunch of houses you'll get less than when you're in a popular place.

There are also lures which are used on pokestops and which spawn loads more pokemon there for 30 minutes (for all players). As far as I know there is no way to check where gyms and pokestops are officially. Someone here is constructing a map for Malta, might want to see whether you find something like that there.

Can you catch all 151 without exchanging? Also the other two starters that you didn't choose?
Thanks for nothing, :pep: !!

Yes, from eggs mostly. Although I haven't heard of the legendaries yet.
