Cheats, codes, tips, hacks, how to's, and walkthroughs

Cheats/Hacks: How to Get Pikachu (Bonus Starter)

To unlock Pikachu easily, start a new game and begin walking around. You'll see three starter Pokemon pop up. Walk around and ignore them. You should see the Pokemon Go starters pop-up at least 4 times before Pikachu will pop-up as a bonus starter Pokemon. Simply don't catch any other Pokemon until you catch Pikachu.

Cheat Codes: Control Eevee's Evolution

In the menu, select the Eevee you wish to evolve (typically the one with the highest CP), click the edit button and rename to the below name that corresponds to the desired Pokemon you want to evolve, and then click "Evolve":

  • Unlock Flareon: Rename your Eevee to Pyro and then press Evolve.
  • Unlock Jolteon: Rename your Eevee to Sparky and then press Evolve.
  • Unlock Vaporeon: Rename your Eevee to Rainer and then press Evolve.

Tips/Hints: Finding Pokemon

First, your phone will buzz whenever a Pokemon is nearby. If it's not buzzing, use your world map and look for green leaves swirling around for a rough indication of where you can look. Typically you will have to walk around outside to find them, but you will sometimes find them in your house.

Tips/Hints: Summon Pokemon

Use the tab in the lower-right corner of your map to see nearby Pokemon and tap on the Pokemon you want to encounter to increase your chances of running into it.

Tips/Hints: Incubating Eggs

To incubate an egg, tap on the egg, choose an incubator, and walk around to get it to hatch. Don't spend time incubating the 2km eggs as these are low-level, and instead focus on 5km or 10km eggs.

Tips/Hints: Easier Capture of Pokemon

If you come across rare or difficult Pokemon to catch, you can use Razz Berries to slow it down and a more powerful Pokeball.

Tips/Hints: Turn off AR for Easier Capturing

Turn off AR to make capturing easier and to not have to worry about pointing your camera awkwardly at other people.

Tips/Hints: Getting Poke Balls without spending PokeCoins

On the World Map, find the floating blue diamonds and walk to these PokeStops. When you're in range the blue diamonds will become circular and let you interact with them. Spin the Photo Disc with your finger and you'll get free Poke Balls and other items.

Tips/Hints: Building XP (Leveling-Up)

The easiest way to build XP in Pokemon Go is to capture Pokemon. Practice a "nice throw" for bonus XP. If you capture the same Pokemon, trade it to the Professor for candy.
