Top 5 Pokemon Go tips everyone should knowHere are some pointers to help you play smart...and safe.
[MUSIC] Let's talk about the top five Pokemon Go tips that everybody should know. [SOUND] At number five, watch where you're going. Apparently this is a problem. People are no longer used to being outside. Two Two teenagers playing the game got stuck in caves 100 feet under ground. Another person was involved in a huge highway crash because he was trying to catch a Pikachu. A 15 year old girl was hit by a car while playing Pokemon Go. Don't be like these people. Play Pokemon Go responsibly. At number four, avoid Squirtle. Now hear me out on this one. The first time you play Pokemon Go, you can capture a few starter Pokemon really easily. There are Squirtle, Bulbasaur, and Charmander. But why capture them when you can capture Pikachu instead? When you see the started Pokemon, ignore them and keep walking around. After ignoring them around four times the started Pokemon will have Pikachu in tow At number three. Naming EEVEE. You can control the evolution of EEVEE. All you have to do is capture one and edit the name. If you write sparky you'll get your EEVEE to evolve into a Jolteon. Type in rainer to get a Vaporeon. Typing in pyro evolves EEVEE into Aquareon. At number two catch them all. Okay no one needs forty Pidgeys. However, capture as many Pokemon as you can. When you catch a Pokemon, you can stardust and candy. Stardust is usually empowering up your Pokemon. Candy helps evolved them. You can offload unneeded Pokemon to the professor. Let him handle it. [SOUND] I ask you on Twitter for your best Pokemon Go tips. Here's what you had to say. Patrick says if you want to know which areas have more Pokemon. Load up Ingress. The small white dots are XM and coincidentally show Pokemon availability. Mark said don't download it, take the dog for a walk instead. And I say to Mark My dog has been walked so much more since you can hunt for Pokemon and walk a dog at the same time. On to number one. AR is a battery killer. The augmented reality mode is really cool. It overlays the [UNKNOWN] immortal Pokemon on whatever your camera's seeing. However, it eats up your battery life like a fiend. On top of that Captain Pokemon is more difficult. Did you see it? Keep your Pokemon in view. Without AR mode on, you will see a Pokemon dead center. Turn it off to save battery. But remember tip number five, watch where you're going. For more top fives, check out top5.cnet.com. I'm Iyaz Akhtar and I'll see you online.
