  1. Check your Nearby and Sightings

First, check your nearby Pokemon Means Pokémon Go has to includes two distinct forms of detecting the Pokémon in your immediate vicinity.

The first is Nearby, which shows you Pokémon hanging around the PokéStops in your area. And the second is Sightings, which shows you the Pokémon hiding anywhere close by, ready to spawn.

So now the Pokémon tab at the bottom right of your travel screen shows you up to three Pokémon’s. Tap on it, and you’ll see up to nine. Depending on what’s is your area, they’ll be all Nearby and all Sightings, or a mix of both.

Nearby squashes Sightings

If there are a lot of PokéStops in your area and a lot of Pokémon loitering at those Stops, nearby will only show you one or two from each Stop.

  1. Know your nests

Best Pokémon Go tips and tricks    Gen 2

Now the second one is “nests”, so what are nests? Nests consistent places where one to four of the same Pokémon will spawn regularly, sometimes even hourly. Sadly, very rare Pokémon like Tyranitar, Mareep, Dragonite, Snorlax, Lapras, and even Grimer don’t have any known nests, but others like Electabuzz, Magmar, and Jinx do.

 How nests and migrations work

Nests currently “migrate” every two weeks. These migrations occur at 12 a.m. GMT. (4 p.m. PT / 7 p.m. ET) every second Thursday. That’s good, because it gives you a couple weeks to stock up on any good Pokémon at your local nests, but also changes things up fairly quickly if you get stuck with a bad nest. So, over the course of a few months, your Charmander nest might become Slowpoke, Charmander again, Diglett, Drowzee, Paras, then Growlith, and so on. Nest migrations are seemingly random, though, so you never really know what you’ll get.


So spawn has a two type one is Regular spawns and the second one is cluster spawns. And what is the different between two spawns. Here, some nests only spawn one Pokémon type or only one interesting type along with some commons like Pidgey and Rattata. Others spawn multiple interesting Pokémon. For example, Staryu, Slowpoke, Polywag, Psyduck, and Magikarp often all spawn at the same water-side points.

  1. Always throw Curve Balls

Now you can play auto throw curve balls to catch the Pokemon. And also throwing a Curve Ball in Pokémon Go is believed to give you a 1.7x bonus to catch a Pokémon.  Here are the Pokémon Go berries and what they do.

Razz Berry: Increases capture chance by 1.5 times
Bluk Berry: Pokémon does not jump or move
Nanab Berry: Pokémon is unable to attack
Pinap Berry: Double the number of Candies dropped
Wepar Berry: Target capture circle is made bigger

The 1.7x bonus for a Curve Ball is higher than the 1.5x bonus you get for using a Razz Berry or switching to a Great Ball, and it consumes no resources. It’s also cumulative, so if you do use a Razz Berry or Great or Ultra Ball, you still get a 1.7x bonus for curving. It’s basically free bonus. All you have to do is get good at throwing it.

So if you use a Razz Berry then throw a Curve Ultra Ball at a Pokémon you have Gold Medal for, and hit the Excellent Bonus, you catch rate multiplies through the roof.

  • Poké Ball: x1.
  • Curve Poké Ball: x1.7.
  • Curve Ultra Ball: x3.4.
  • Curve Ultra Ball + Razz Berry: x5.1.
  • Curve Ultra Ball + Razz Berry + Excellent: x10.2.
  • Curve Ultra Ball + Razz Berry + Excellent + Gold Medal: x13.26.

  1. Stardust for catching Pokémon

You will need the candies for power up your Pokémon. Stardust, though, can come from any Pokémon you catch or hatch, among other ways.  Now, evolved Pokémon give more of a bonus – 5 Candies for second evolution and 10 Candies for a final evolution. So a Pidgeot gives you 10 Candies, while Pidgeotto gives you 5, allowing you to reach evolutions and improve your Pokémon faster.

Stardust is most plentiful from eggs, with 2km providing between 500 and 1,500, between 1,000 and 2,100 for 5km eggs and 1,600 and 3,200 for a 10km egg.

Candies are also given generously from hatched eggs. 2km can net you between 5 and 15, 5km between 10 and 21 and 10km between 16 and 32 Candies.

Catching as many Pokémon as possible means you have as much Stardust as possible to power up.

  1. New Avatars and an expanded wardrobe

How do I customise my Pokémon Go avatar? It’s new updates to you can buy items using Gold and which can be bought using money or earned through holding Gyms. It is possible to spend quite a few British pounds on a mask or blazer, which would be better spent on Incubators for eggs.

  1. Gen 2 Pokémon hatch all eggs

It is possible that you might not be able to use any of your current eggs with Gen 2 Pokémon, so it is better to hatch them while you can. If you have a Lucky Egg, a bunch of Pidgey, Caterpie, Weedle, and Rattata you want to mass-evolve for leveling, and a slew of Pokémon Eggs available to hatch, start your 10 KM eggs incubating.

  1. Clear storage slots
