Japan will be Pokemon Go’s first Asia release, its likely that others in the region such as India should see a release this week or the next. That hasn’t stopped eager Indian fans playing it though.
Before you dive in to Pokémon Go, you’ll want to get the hang of how the game works. That means knowing the world, its mechanics, and how to access your Pokédex, Items, and more.
To sign up for the game, you’ll need to use your Google account or sign up for a Pokémon Trainer Club account. Pokémon Go stores all your information on its servers, so you’ll need to use one of these two methods to link your Pokémon data to your device.
After signing up, you’ll want to customize your digital avatar. You can choose your gender, eye color, hair color, shirt, hat, pants, shoes, and the style of your backpack. Once you’ve done so, you’ll enter the main area of the game: The Pokémon Go map.
Essentially, the main area of the game is a brightly-animated version of Google Maps. You’ll see (unmarked) roads, rustling grass (marking Pokémon in the area), and local landmarks disguised as PokéStops and Pokémon Gyms. As you move in the real world, your avatar does too. Pokémon will pop up on the map with a small vibration as you walk along, and if you tap on them, you can try to capture them.
- Player icon: Your player icon is at the bottom left corner of the screen. Tap on this to view your character’s information, as well as a list of in-game achievements.
- Backpack: This is where all the items you pick up on your journey are stored.
- Pokédex: Your index of Pokémon, complete with information on all the species you’ve already caught.
- Pokémon: Here, you can see all the Pokémon that are in your possession.
- Nearby Pokémon: Tap on the bottom right corner of the screen to see which Pokémon are nearby.
