Just a few days after its release, a lot of Pokemon fans all over the world have been yearning for the game to be available in their country.

In a previous article, we helped you with the basics of Pokemon Go and in this article, we will be aiding you with the most helpful tips and tricks with the game we have gathered out there.
Pikachu as your starting Pokemon
All fans know that the basic Pokemon is made up of three cute little Pokemon which are Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Charmander. A lot of people do not know this but you can actually get Pikachu as your starting Pokemon in Pokemon Go. When you sign up into the game, you will be asked to personalize your character, right? After that, you will be asked by the Professor to catch a Pokemon which can be one of the three mentioned above.
So what do you need to do to have Pikachu as your starting Pokemon? It’s really simple, all you have to do is walk away (in real life) until your phone vibrates which signifies that you have a new notification. Oftentimes, it will give you the same three starter Pokemon but repeat walking away 4-5 times and you will get Pikachu.
Catch a Pokemon easier
The game offers AR which is Augmented Reality and it is when you see Pokemon through the lens of your camera’s smartphones. Did you know that catching a Pokemon in this mode is harder? Swap the AR to the real virtual world because you will have an easier and a better catching experience. Yes, it doesn’t look cooler than that of the AR mode but this can greatly increase your chances of catching the Pokemon you just spotted.
Razz Berries with Pokeballs
In your Pokemon lifetime, you will surely encounter a rare or a not-so-easy-to-catch Pokemon and not being able to catch it can make you feel less of a Poke Master. Here in Pokemon Go, there is an item called Razz Berries and its effect is to slow down or to tranquilize wild Pokemon.
To use a Razz Berry, tap on your backpack during catching phase and it will send it to the wild Pokemon and from then on, you have a better and greater chances of catching the wild Pokemon.
Attract and Lure Pokemon
Oh of course, the times when you can’t go out due to many reasons are the times you won’t be able to go outside to explore and maybe, catch Pokemon. No worries, because Pokemon Go has its own tricks and one of them is bound to an item. There is an item called the”incense” and its use is to lure Pokemon when you are stagnant. When you are just at home, sitting on your desk or lying in your bed, you can use incense to attract Pokemon to come to you.
To use this, go to the Pokeball icon at the bottom of the screen and select Items and then select Incense to draw and attract wild Pokemon straight to where you are. You will know that the incense is doing its magic when you see a purple ring around your avatar.
