[Pokemon Go Crucial Tips] Wanna Be The Very Best? You've Got To Know These!

It’s official. Pokemon Go is EVERYWHERE. And you’re going to need some Pokemon Go crucial tips to be the very best! Over this past week or so, you’d be more likely than not to run into someone staring intently at their phone screens. They walk, abruptly stop, and may even exclaim in excitement. All these in the name of catching virtual creatures and battling gyms.

However, getting to the top is never easy. With the sheer number of people playing this game so intensely, competition is stiff and very, very real. Especially in Singapore.

So, if you’re one of those striving very hard to be the best, fret not! Team Discover SG is here to help! There’s more to Pokemon Go than simply catching ’em all. Read on for Pokemon Go crucial tips.

1. How To Meet Stronger Pokemon

In order to meet stronger Pokemon, you’ll first need to level up. While you can power up your Pokemon with some stardust and their respective candies, there’s no point in doing so. Especially if your level isn’t high.

2. How To Level Up Quickly

After all, you’re definitely going to meet (and catch) stronger Pokemon out there. Focus on increasing your level and the stronger Pokemon will come.

If you’re looking to level up as quickly as possible, then evolution is your best bet: for every Pokemon you evolve, you get 500XP (experience points).

3. Which Pokemon To Evolve For More XP

Now comes the question. Which Pokemon to evolve?

Answer: Caterpie, Weedle, and Pidgey. Why?

Because these Pokemon are incredibly common. Not only that, you also only need 12 candies (3 catches) to evolve these Pokemon. Since you get the same amount of XP regardless of the Pokemon you evolve, this is the easiest and fastest method to level up!

Plus, these Pokemon are practically everywhere. So, just collect as many and evolve them when you can! Don’t worry about having multiple useless Pokemon – simply transfer them for the candy.

You’ll soon see your level climbing steadily in no time!

4. Getting Vaporeon, Jolteon, and Flareon

When in the original games, you had to obtain Water, Thunder or Fire Stones to evolve Eevee to whichever Pokemon you want. In Pokemon Go, it all really depends on luck, meaning you’ll need to hope for the best.

However, there’s a trick to making sure you’ll get what you want all the time. It’s really simple – all you have to do is give the correct nickname to your Eevee before evolution.

To get a Vaporeon, rename your Eevee to Rainer. For Jolteon, Sparky. If you’d like a Flareon, rename your Eevee to Pyro. That’s all there is to it!

Also, for some reason, Jolteon seems to have the lowest Combat Power (CP) of the three, while Vaporeon tends to be the strongest.

5. Fighting Gyms Gives You Benefits

If you’ve noticed, there’s intense competition in battling for gym leadership. That’s because becoming a gym leader gives you benefits. When you take over a gym, you can assign any one of your Pokemon to the gym, making you a gym leader.

You get 10 coins per day for each Pokemon you have in the gym, and all you need to do is simply collect your coins from the shop. Just refer to the top right-hand corner of the screen to see the number of Pokemon you have in gyms!

You can then exchange these coins for in-game items such as Poke Balls, lure modules, lucky eggs and even bag upgrades. All without having to spend real cash on these items!

So there you have it – Pokemon Go crucial tips so you can be the very best. Of course, we hope all you trainers out there can enjoy the game to the fullest. If there are any issues, feel free to feedback on the Niantic webpage.
