Pokemon loves places like public parks and recreation areas. Look for Pokemon at habitats that match where they're most likely to live.
Visit PokeStops, found at popular landmarks like museums, art installations, historical markers, and monuments, to stock up on Poke Balls and helpful items.
When you encounter a wild Pokemon on the map, throw Poke Balls to catch the Pokemon using your touch screen. Your chances of catching a Pokemon is affected by the type of Poke Ball you used, your throwing technique and other factors.

As you level up, you'll be able to catch more-powerful Pokemon to complete your Pokedex. You can add to your collection by hatching Pokemon Eggs based on the distances you walk.

Teams and Gym Battles
You may be asked to join a team where you'll can assign Pokemon you've caught to open Gym locations or to a location where a team member has placed one of this or her Pokemon.
