The main tool of a Pokemon trainer is a Pokeball which can be used to try and catch a wild Pokemon that appears around you. You get 50 Pokeballs at the start of the game and you can get more Pokeballs by going to a nearby PokeStop and interacting with it by flipping the circle. You can also get some Pokeballs as rewards if you level up or you can purchase them through the Shop using the Pokecoins.

PokeStops are the places where you can get free Pokeballs, Revive, Potions and other such items for free daily. There are numerous PokeStops everywhere in the world, so make sure you stop by at one daily to keep it going.
You must have noticed that when you go to a PokeStop, you might get some Pokemon eggs along with the Pokeballs, revive and other items. Pokemon eggs are of three types 2km type, 5km type and 10km type. In order to hatch a Pokemon egg, you need to walk the distance depending on the type of Pokemon. We have shared some killer tricks to hatch eggs faster in Pokemon Go previously.
When an Egg is placed in an Egg Incubator, the player must travel a certain distance tracked by the phone’s GPS before the egg will hatch. Only one incubator is given at the start of the game and can be used as many times as needed, but more fragile versions to incubate multiple eggs can be bought in the Store or gained from levelling that will break after 3 uses.
Incense is a smelly thing which when used, lures all the Pokemons hiding in your area and increases the rate at which you are finding Pokemons for at least 30 minutes. You get 2 Incense to use at the start of the game for free but you can buy more from the Shop in a batch of either 1, 8 or 25 by using the PokeCoins. The incense can allow only the player who has used it to discover the Pokemons unlike the Lure Module, explained below.
Lucky Eggs, unlike regular Pokemon Eggs, are used as consumables that increase your overall experience gain by double the amount for a period of 30 minutes. You can purchase them on the Shop in batches of 1, 8, or 25 in exchange for PokeCoins.
A Lure Module is similar to incense and can attract Pokemon to a particular PokeStop for a period of 30 minutes. Not only is it more effective, but it also targets the PokeStop not just for the player, but all players interacting with the PokeStop during that period! It can be bought from the Shop in groups of either 1 or 8 in exchange for PokeCoins.
Restore your Pokemon back to health after battling at the gyms with Potions. Each potion type is unlocked at a different level. Potions can start being found in PokeStops after level 5. You will be awarded potions when you level up as well. Super Potions will start appearing in PokeStops after level 10.
- Potion – Restores HP by 20 points.
- Super Potion – Restores HP by 50 points.
- Hyper Potion – Restores HP by 200 Points.
Revive will help a fainted Pokemon recover with half of its maximum HP. If you talk about a Max Revive the Pokemon will get all of its HP back. Note that Pokemon can only faint in Gym Battles againt opposing gym teams. Training against your own will never result in fainted Pokemon. You can find Revives after reaching to Level 5 at the Pokestops and also win them when you level up.
GREAT BALLS and ULTRA BALLS
After reaching to a certain level, you will unlock the Great balls and Ultra balls. Though you cannot buy these balls at a PokeStop but you can earn them as rewards when you level up or getting them by stopping by at PokeStops randomly.
How To Join a Team in Pokemon Go
As users acquire and strengthen more Pokemon by catching more and more of them, they will have to use them to battle other players to take over the leadership at Pokemon Gyms. These can be found at different locations in the whole world. You can focus on building a very strong Pokemon team and when you reach level 5, you will have to join one of the three teams — Team Instinct, Mystic or Valor — and aim to claim a Gym as it helps to increase the overall global rankings of your team.
