Pokemon Go Tracker Update

Pokemon Go Tracker Update

Finally, we got it trainers the Pokemon Go Tracker Update.  This Pokemon Go Tracker Update is phenomenal, yes that’s right, you can now actually play Pokemon Go the way it should be played.  Poke Trainers everywhere cried, and Niantic responded quickly with a great update to the in game Tracker System.  Niantic has taken Pokemon Go to a whole new level, or have they just reverted back to what they gave us all along!  Anyway the Pokemon Go Tracker Update is great, and I am amazed how quickly they were able to roll it out.

With the roll out of the new Pokemon Go Tracker Update we also see some new features.  They new tracker system goes by “Sightings” now.  So maybe we should call it the Pokemon Go Sightings Update.  Anyway what sightings does is replace the old system completely, and given us a new graphic where Pokemon will appear in a swatch of grass.  On top of this the list changes the way it should periodically allowing us to know what Pokemon are actually in the area, or are not in the area.  It is now possible to have nothing on the radar, unlike in the past this does not represent the server being down!  This is great news because we know to now high tail our way out of that area, and go find some Pokemon elsewhere.

Pokemon Go Tracker Update Gameplay

The pulsing system is still in place.  This is what will update, reset, or maintain your sighting list.  This hasn’t changed, and is similar to the old tracker.  The difference is that you can actually use this to track Pokemon close by.  I was able to use it to quickly add another Scyther to my collection along with a few Dratinis while I was testing it out.

Now, that we have the Pokemon Go Tracker Update err I mean Sightings Update, we can track Pokemon on our sightings list.  In order to track the Pokemon you will utilize the old tracker method.  Starting at the top left of the sightings list will be your closest Pokemon.  Then as you work your way horizontally, and diagonally across the list the Pokemon will slowly be further away.  You still will see the nine Pokemon on the list, but the refreshing and accuracy of the sightings system is much better.  You should use the same walking system as before as well.  That walking system is the 90 degree, and 180 degree turn system to locate the Pokemon.  Don’t do what I did to track my Scyther down, and just meander all over because you were so happy there was a new system.

There is one other major notable change in the Pokemon Go Tracker Update which you will quickly notice as I did.  If you are in a vehicle (Do not drive and play Pokemon Go) you will get a screen pop up stating you are going too fast.  You will need to indicate you are a passenger.  It does reset when you exit the game, so it is not some onetime thing.

Pokemon Go Tracker Update

I think Niantic has done a great job in response to the community and swiftly rolled out a great Pokemon Go Tracker Update for players.  I believe this Sightings Update will breathe new life into the game for the community, and help clean up some of the frustration.  On top of that we can get back the thrill of hunting the Pokemon down!  I really enjoy this update, and I hope you do too! Get out there Poke Trainers and prosper!

Pokemon Go How to Level FAST

Pokemon Go How to Level FAST

Pokemon Go How to Level FAST

So, by now everyone has been playing Pokemon Go for a few weeks…The first person to apparently catchem all has come out of the shadows, and we are also seeing the backlash from the game.  You know things like trespassing, violence, and robberies.  However, I want to tell you in Pokemon Go how to level fast!  There literally is no other way to do this.  On top of that I have yet to find someone who has beat my 30 min experience burst…not to toot my own horn…

In Pokemon Go how to level fast is actually fairly simple.  The problem is actually are you patient?  Yes, are you a patient person to store up your Pokemon, and hold those Pokemon in your inventory?  If that answer is “Yeah Buddy!” then you will have a great 30 minute shot in Pokemon Go to boost your experience!  You may power level, and at a minimum at least get a huge chunk of experience.  I will layout the strategy, and the specifications for you in the next few paragraphs so hang with me you patient person you!

Catch those Pokemon

First off, if you are patient like I stated you will accomplish the Pokemon Go how to level fast methodology.  To do this you need to catch every friggen Pidgey, Caterpie, and Weedle possible! No joke my friends.  Seriously though do it.  Each of those three Pokemon represent the fast way to level, mainly because the best way to level is through evolution.  Pidgey, Caterpie, and Weedle each take 12 candies to level.  That means every three that you catch and after a transfer you have enough for one evolution.  However, do not forget to keep some for the evolution process!

Evolving by the Numbers

After you have caught a crap ton of Pokemon the next piece of this Pokemon level guide is to use a lucky egg.  The lucky egg will double your experience for 30 minutes.  Your goal is to have caught enough Pokemon to utilize the full 30 minutes with evolutions.  Yes, no wandering off, and no moving screens from the Pokemon menu! You literally for the full 30 minutes are going to evolve your Pokemon.  Each time you evolve with an egg it’s going to net you a minimum 1,000 experience.  I say minimum because if you do not have the Pokemon in your pokedex yet you will net more!!!!  This is primarily going to pertain to evolutions most likely outside the three Pokemon you are storing up.

To give you some rough estimates on the amount of evolutions you will need here is a breakdown of timelines.  Each evolution takes roughly 20-30 seconds, and a new Pokemon added to the pokedex will take roughly 40-60 seconds.  With those numbers you should be able to evolve roughly 60 Pokemon in 30 minutes!!!

Inconclusion, Pokemon Go how to level fast, there is only one proven method to get there.  If you don’t believe me check out the youtube video above killing the evolution process! I net 71,500 experience in 30 minutes.  See if you can beat that! Second time through I got 68,000 experience.  Now, that you know the trick to the Pokemon go power level get out there and catch those Pokemon! Good luck, and let me know your thoughts below.

Pokemon Go Beginner Guide

Pokemon Go Beginner Guide

Pokemon Go Beginner Guide

Pokemon Go is only a few weeks old, and the out pouring of people to play the game is insane.  Recently we have seen some new patches, and functional changes to the game.  However, today I wanted to take some time and through together a helpful Pokemon Go beginner guide for players that maybe on the sidelines of playing, or slowly making their way through the Pokeverse!

This guide features 10 episodes that help show the gameplay of Pokemon Go.  These are a collection of videos that should help players understand different aspects of the game.  Hopefully it will also help prevent you from making some of the same mistakes that I did.  For example, not taking on a gym with the wrong idea of what would happen.

This Pokemon Go beginner guide will cover the following items: Game Tutorial, Pokedex, Powering up your Pokemon, Lures, Team Pick, Gym Battles, 1k CP Pokemon, Egg Hatches, and using incense.


This video covers the very beginning of Pokemon Go.  Professor Willow is going to show up go over some things with you, and you will get to pick one of three Pokemon: Charmander, Squirtle, or Bulbasaur.

Pokemon Go Pro Tips: If you walk out of range a few times from the Pokemon Pikachu will appear as a choice of starter Pokemon!


This video goes over additional Pokemon that I caught, and increasing your pokedex.

Powering Up Pokemon

Here we power up Pokemon using Star Dust.  You can obtain stardust from capturing new Pokemon, claiming gym rewards, and hatching eggs.

Pokemon Go Pro Tips: Save your Star Dust as it becomes extremely expensive to level up powerful Pokemon later.  The other thing to know is as your account levels, the CP of your Pokemon will also be leveled.  If you max the CP of a Pokemon at current level, after you level you will get the ability to power it up two more times raising its max CP.


Here I do some lure camping.  Testing out sitting around trying to catch some Pokemon, and see if it’s a viable option.

Team Pick

This is the intro to gym battles! Here you will get to pick your team that you will align with in Pokemon Go.  The choices are: Mystic, Instinct, and Valor.  I also, tackle a gym…way too early.  I thought you didn’t have to battle your way all the way to the top.  Make sure you have a good team of six strong Pokemon to help you take the gym for your team!

Pokemon Go Pro Tips: Go Mystic!!! Seriously though.


Trying out incense in this video so I can sit around.  It did not work out real well for me.

Podex Additions!

More Pokemon added to my Pokedex.

Egg Hatch

Here is a collection of 10 km, 5 km, and 2 km eggs that I hatched from walking around.

Gym Leader Take Over

Finally, I built up enough strong Pokemon to take some gyms. I also was able to just place a few at some gyms that were recently taken.

Pokemon Go Pro Tips: Make sure after you take some gyms you navigate to the shop to claim your rewards!  This wasn’t intuitive when I first started playing.  This can be done daily and is one of the only ways to get Pikachu coins.  It is also a good way to get star dust.

1k CP Pokemon

I level up eevee and evolve getting my first 1k CP Pokemon.

Hopefully the collection of video guides, and written tips will help you navigate the world of Pokemon Go.  Some of these tips should also help you later in to the game as well.  Happy Pokemon hunting in Pokemon Go!!!  Feel free to leave questions, comments, or feedback!
