8 Featured Characters in Pokémon GO

When you have Pokémon GO on your cell phone, get on your feet and step outside to find and catch wild Pokémon. Explore cities and towns where you live - and even around the globe - to capture as many Pokémon as you can. As you walk through the real world, your smartphone will vibrate to let you know you're near a Pokémon, and then you can follow the GPS map to find PokéStops, Gyms, the location of nearby Pokémon, and more! During process, to ensure that you can quickly find out Pokémon, we have listed some tricks and cheats in the guide about Pokémon GO tricks and cheats.

When you start to play Pokémon GO, it’s most effective to look for Pokémon at habitats that match where they're most likely to live. For example, if you’re on the beach or at a pier, you’re more likely to find Water-type Pokémon. However, if you are in a desert climate, you would be much less likely to find Water-type Pokémon. Here we will introduce 8 featured characters in Pokémon GO to make it abundantly clear.
