Pokemon GO: Buddy update first look
Game Pokemon GO is available for free download in Google Play Market and Apple Store. App of Corporation Niantic this summer has made a revolution in the world of games with adjustable reality and can be one of the most popular online games for smartphones this year.
This article will help you to find out about Pokemon GO’s tricks and secrets, the knowledge of which is essential for anyone hunting pocket monsters.
If you think that Pokemon GO is just a pointless quest with monsters and special effects, you are quite wrong. In fact the game has a quite elaborate and well thought-out gameplay seasoned with Easter eggs, tricks and unexpected surprises. Here’s what we’ve learned for the time being.
Finding and capturing pokemon
Rustling green leaves mean that pokemon are hiding somewhere nearby.
The bottom right-hand corner of the screen displays the pokemon that are hiding nearby. You can calculate the approximate distance between you and a pokemon judging by the number of footprints next to the pokemon’s icon. Experience has shown that one footprint equals approximately 40 metres.
The colour and size of the circle around the monster on the capture screen matters. The smaller it is, the better your throw will be. Green colour means easy game, yellow means you have some work to do and red colour marks the pokemon that are almost impossible to catch.
If you’ve missed but your Pokeball hasn’t disappeared from the screen, tap on it fast. This way you can have a second try and save the discs.
You can throw curveballs. In order to do it press on the Pokeball and move your finger around a couple of times before actually throwing the ball. A curveball will bring you extra points.
The higher your level is, the rarer and stronger pokemon will come your way.
Pokemon act differently depending on the time of day. If you take a walk in the evening, you might happen to catch rare night monsters.
Even if you’ve caught a lot of monsters of the same kind, don’t stop doing it. You get Experience, Candy and Stardust for that. Spare pokemon can always be given to the Professor for a reward.
Gyms and Pokestops
In order to join a faction and get into a gym you need to reach at least level 5.
Your choice of faction doesn’t really matter. Anyhow, no functional differences have been revealed between factions for the time being.
Empty gyms are marked with grey colour. You can take any of them and leave one of your pokemon there. But only one pokemon!
Battles in your faction’s gym boost your pokemon and raise the prestige level of the gym. Battles in other faction’s gyms lowers the prestige level. When it is close to zero, the faction will lose control of the gym and you’ll be able to take over.
You get bonuses from every gym where you’ve left your pokemon. The bonuses are 500 Stardust points and 10 coins per day.
Pokestops recharge every 5 minutes.
You don’t have to tap on each prize to pick it up from a Pokestop. Just close this screen and the bonuses will be automatically stored in your inventory.
You can use several different techniques in battles. A quick tap on the enemy causes a quick attack. A long tap allows you to strike a super blow. A swipe to the left or to the right is a way of avoiding attacks.
Your pokemon can’t be destroyed in a battle that takes place in your faction’s gym. And if you win, you get Experience points.
A defeat in another faction’s gym destroys your monsters. You can revive them and restore their powers only with the help of special tools from your backpack – Potion and Revive.
Eggs sometimes fall out of Pokestops. The monsters from a hatched egg are usually the rarest and strongest.
To hatch a pokemon you need to put an egg in the Egg Incubator (there is always one in your inventory). Then you have to walk the distance indicated near each egg.
Only walking on foot counts, so no bicycle or car. While walking you must keep the Pokemon GO app activated.
Tips for saving your traffic and battery
Pokemon GO uses Google Maps API to track your location and this gives us an opportunity to greatly reduce the use of mobile traffic. Just open the Google Maps app on your phone and save the map of your city to use it offline. Now Pokemon GO can load maps from cash, which will not only reduce the data transmission but also speed up the game.
Some users complain of the game’s draining the battery too fast. However, there’s nothing to be surprised about: Pokemon GO constantly keeps the screen on, tracks your location, transmits and receives data, uses camera and the phone’s sensors. In order to reduce energy consumption, activate Battery Saver in the game’s settings. Then your phone’s screen will be automatically switched off when you turn the phone over. You can also switch off the music right there in the settings as it also plays a role in draining the battery.
Besides, you might want to turn off the Augmented Reality (AR) to save the battery. You can do it while catching pokemon – there’ll be an indicator in the top right-hand corner. Well, it does make the playing process a little less fascinating but significantly reduces energy consumption.
And what interesting discoveries have you made while playing Pokemon GO? Share your experience in the comments!
Surely, you want to know where the most rare pokemon hide in Pokemon GO. All players want to know that. What will help you is a special map that indicates pokemon locations all over the world.
Poke Radar is an online map and a mobile app for iOS that will help you locate pokemons’ hiding places. If you’re tired of coming across the same monsters and if you want to add some rare specimens to your collection, then Poke Radar is exactly what you’re looking for.
The map of pokemon locations is being created by the players themselves and indicates the spots where they managed to find the most rare monsters. You can filter the results in the dropdown menu in the top left-hand corner. It means that Poke Radar allows you to hunt those pokemon that you actually need.
Certainly, the app doesn’t guarantee people won’t use it to deliberately post false information. However, these fakes are very easy to trace. Just click on the spot needed and look at the tooltip that contains additional information. You’ll see the player who has added this spot and its current rating according to other player’s votes. The higher the rating is, the more likely you are to find a rare pokemon on that spot.
The Poke Radar app for iOS functions in the same manner and you can use it outdoors while playing. Developers promise to release the Android version of the app soon.
Note that due to Poke Radar’s enormous popularity (Poke Radar became second in App Store’s top free apps in a few days’ notice) the developers’ servers are overloaded and they have a hard time handling all the requests fast. So be patient and just try again.

Resident Evil HD Remaster: Make on rotten
Those who are “classic” Jill Valentine and Chris Redfield not like skins can choose from more recent Resident Evil. Although we do not really imagine how you can voluntarily give up this cute beret.
What’s good: Classic gameplay, improved graphics, and (even more importantly) the management, the ability to back (or last) experience what fans have experienced the first Resident Evil in 1996.
What is bad: In these times the first part of the series seems too old-fashioned and clunky, and most importantly – absolutely not terrible. Famous zombies and mutants rather laugh and control, even after the reform, annoying.
What is the result: Not a bad game for those who enjoy the history of the industry, or wants to remember the past. Mossy stuff for everyone else.
