Essential Tools Every Pokémon Go Player Needs To Succeed

We all want to be the best that we can be when it comes to Pokémon Go. But since the game came with very little in the way of instructions, many trainers are figuring out tricks as they go along. Luckily, there are also several tools that have popped up to help catch em all. Check them out below and get hunting!

Poké Radar

First of all, finding those pesky missing Pokémon in the first place is half of the battle. Luckily, Poké Radar is here to make your Pokémon hunting slightly easier. Poké Radar is essentially Google Maps for a Pokémon trainer. Type in an address and voila, easily see which Pokémon are around. This info is provided by trainers and can be upvoted or downvoted if you don’t see the Pokémon where they’ve been reported.

Pidgey Spam

Okay. So you’ve got your Pokémon, you’re ready to evolve them, but you need to figure out exactly how many to transfer before activating your Lucky Egg. Pidgey Spam has exactly what you need. Use Pidgey Spam “to find the optimal amount of Pokémon to transfer and reap for Candy” before you start your Lucky Egg and evolve as many as you can in 30 minutes. So now, you don’t even have to do the math yourself!
