How to get Pikachu in Pokemon Go

Top Mistakes to Avoid Before You Start Playing Pokemon Go

Mistakes I made when I first started playing Pokémon go.

Here are some newb mistakes I made in the past that you can avoid.

Learn the secret to getting Pikachu when you first register. Don't pick one of the first three Pokémon they offer you after registering. Keep walking until those three Pokémon disappear and reappear 4 times, then Pikachu will appear for you to choose as your first first Pokémon.

Stop throwing the pokeball directly at the circle around the Pokémon. When you first start playing it looks like you can just throw the ball directly at the Pokémon. In actuality, it looks more like you are lobbing the ball over the Pokémon's head when you throw it. If you are continuously missing, try throwing the ball higher up.

Don't start evolving your Pokémon right away. Save them all up and evolve all of all of them at the same time the next time you use a lucky egg. This is the fastest way to level up. I probably evolved around 14 Pokémon before figuring this out. The lucky egg gives you double the XP for each evolve allowing you to level up faster.

Remember that some Pokémon can be evolved twice. Don't make the same mistake I did and evolve two lower Pokémon when you could have taken one Pokémon and Evolved it twice.

Make sure the clothes of your character match the team color you are on.

Should you evolve Pokémon first or power up first?
I like to evolve Pokémon first before powering them up but that is a personal preference and you will get different advice from different people.

Don't be intimidated of battling at or training at gyms. Even if you lose, you won't lose any Pokémon, you will be able to bring them back using revive and potions that you get from pokestops.

Finally, join red team. I am not biased, it's just a coincidence.

What team should I join in Pokémon go?

What is the best team to join in Pokémon go?

The best team to join is a valor. End of article.

Just kidding. There are three teams in Pokémon go. Mystic blue, instinct yellow, valor red.

Mystic is the most popular followed by valor and the least popular there is instinct. If you are in a populated city you will find that a lot of the gyms will be dominated by blue team, Mystic.

You might think that joining Mystic is the obvious choice being the largest. You are wrong. If every Gym is blue, then you'll end up training nonstop and won't have the opportunity to battle. Your revive item will accumulate in your bag filling it up forcing you to either dump the unused revive items or paying money to expand your item bag.

If you are team instinct, it will be very difficult for you to find team members to help you take down strong Gyms. Also, who wants to be a loner by them self on a team with nobody in it.

Team valor has the coolest logo and team color. Don't be basic and pick the same color everyone else is picking. Finally, yellow is an ugly color.

I'm not biased, it's just a coincidence I happened to have picked Red.
