Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokémon have been discovered on planet Earth!
Now’s your chance to discover and capture the Pokémon all around you—so get your shoes on, step outside, and explore the world. You’ll join one of three teams and battle for the prestige and ownership of Gyms with your Pokémon at your side.
Pokémon are out there, and you need to find them. As you walk around a neighborhood, your smartphone will vibrate when there’s a Pokémon nearby. Take aim and throw a Poké Ball… You’ll have to stay alert, or it might get away!
Grass Animation, What is it All About?
In the Pokémon GO world, where we wander around looking for Pokémon, most of us will use the “Nearby” function for their hunt. But many forget that the Pokémon are everywhere in this world. In addition to using the “Nearby” feature, you should pay attention to the grass animations around you.
Just like in the original game series, the grass animation (which looks like green confetti) in Pokémon GO hints you that there are Pokémon hiding at that specific location. In other words, if you follow the animation, you may find some more Pokémon. This allows you to maximize your Pokémon finding ability. So next time when you’re out hunting, make sure to check out the Grass Animations in your area, as you might find some of your favorite Pokémon hiding in there.
