3. Exploring the world

3.1 Points of Interest 

If you look at your map, you will see different points of interest to include Pokémon, Pokéstops, and gyms. Each can be interacted with in a different way, but we will get to them all in a minute.

3.2 Finding Pokémon


If you walk near a Pokémon, it will appear on your screen, and you may tap on it to bring yourself to a closer view so you may attempt to catch it with your Pokéballs. You may turn the AR (augmented reality) on or off for this experience. Pokémon are easier to catch when AR is off because this centers the Pokémon in the middle of your screen. In the bottom right hand corner of your screen, there is a menu that displays up to 9 Pokémon near you.
