Pokemon Go Tips/Tricks Compilation

Since everyone is playing this game right now, I am playing on behave of my lovely daughter as well.  shhh....

The game itself seems so complex as it does not explain much when you join the game.  As a late comer, I have to google online to look for answers.  Unsurprisingly, there are tons of information on the web and it takes time to go through them all; lots of them are duplicate information anyway.  Here I compiled a list of good source for me to get all things that I need to know.


That's all.  Gotta catch 'em all!

2016-08-03  Pokemon Fever is over?

  • Is it over?  The number of people playing Pokemon Go dropped to dramatically.  I hardly see anyone playing on the street now.
  • Personally, I have leveled up to 21 and now it is stale.  It is not easy to level up further.  Pokemons are much harder to catch than before.  Wasting some many Pokeball just to catch Pidgey, even it is a green circle.  I call it cheating, Nintendo.
  • Powering up Pokemon is basically useless.  Yes, higher CP is easier to take over gyms, but it does not make you easier to secure these gyms.   A newbie with six 800+ CP can easily take up a 2000+ CP Pokemon.
  • What's the goal besides collecting all Pokemons anyway?
  • What's the goal to take over these gyms besides the lousy 10 in-game coins per gym per 21-hour?
  • Nintendo, Pokemon Go introduces a new gaming concept to the whole world.  Don't screw it up.  Come up with new ideas to make this game viable.  Provide chat opton, let winner hold the gyms for a minimum fixed period of time, 1 hour?  don't cheat on the stats, PvP options or even GvG, make different types of gyms that give different rewards, some with coins, some with stardusts, some with Pokeballs, etc.
  • Come on, you are one of the most creative company in the world.  Think of something!
