Similar to other Pokemon video games, you must throw a Poke Ball towards a Pokemon in order to catch it, but this works a bit differently than previous titles in the series. Don’t worry! We’ll tell you the best way to catch Pokemon in the game.
The best part? Your phone will buzz whenever a Pokemon is nearby!
While viewing the world map, wild Pokemon will appear next to your custom Trainer. Walk in the creature’s general direction and then tap the Pokemon. This causes Pokemon Go to transition from the virtual world to using your phone’s camera, giving the illusion of Eevee, Psyduck and Weedle appearing in the real world!
Adjust your phone screen so you see the Pokemon you wish to catch, and make note of the Poke Ball icon at the bottom of the screen. Place a finger on the Poke Ball and hold. See the white targeting circle? When you press and hold your finger on the Poke Ball icon, you’ll see a green circle appear inside of the white one. This green circle will slowly contract, growing smaller and smaller. Wait until this green circle is as small as possible and then flick your finger towards the Pokemon, sending the Poke Ball in its direction. Based on our experience, this is the easiest way to increase the odds of catching Pokemon in Pokemon Go. If you want an even greater challenge and some exercise, we’ll tell you how to hatch eggs in Pokemon Go to get all sorts of cool stuff.
There’s no guarantee this will work the first try! You may have to throw several Poke Balls until you catch the Pokemon. Even if you trap a Pokemon inside of a Poke Ball, it may escape!
After catching a Pokemon, you’ll see a red light in the center of the Poke Ball. If this light fades, congratulations! You captured the Pokemon.
Pokemon Go Tip: If you see some green leaves swirling about on the virtual map, there’s a wild Pokemon nearby. In fact, the game lets you know which Pokemon you’re likely to encounter. Tap the rectangular bar on the bottom right corner of the screen to view these critters.
