Thanks to our friend Atish91 @thedreamer91, we can offer you this quick guide to the world of Pokémon Go, for all those who are not accustomed to the "ingress" mechanics will definitely come back very useful!
The guide is constantly updated, you can download the latest version from this link
1. Where do I download the game?

2. How do I move on the map?
The game is based on GPS location, so in order to move you have to walk in reality. The points of interest of the game are buildings, sculptures, murals or other elements actually present in the cities;
3. How do I catch pokemon?
As you walk, some pokemon will appear randomly on the map. Tapping the pokemon will enter "capture" mode. Hold the pokeball until the circle on the pokemon is small enough (the smaller it is, the more likely the pokemon will not come out of the pokeball) and drag the pokeball towards the pokemon you want to catch. After a few "shakes" the pokemon will be caught or will come out and you will have to repeat the process.
ATTENTION: after a few attempts, the pokemon may even run away and not be captured.
4. Can I use other objects on wild pokemon beyond normal pokeball?
There are berries that pokestops drop upon reaching a certain level. For example, reached level 8 it is possible to use the Baccalampon, a special berry that makes it easier to catch that pokemon on the next attempt. To use these tools tap the backpack icon to the right of the pokeball and select what you want to use. Then drag the tool towards the pokemon as if it were a pokeball;
5. When and how do you choose the Team?
The team to belong to is chosen once level 5 is reached. Opening a gym, the doctor will present the 3 leaders and, after a description of the teams, you can choose which team to join. The teams are 3:
Wisdom -> Blue
Instinct -> Yellow
Courage -> Red
6. How do gyms work?
Some points of interest on the map are the gyms. A gym can be free (gray) or already belong to a team (and therefore have the relative color). If the gym is free you can conquer it by depositing a pokemon, if the gym belongs to a team you can challenge the pokemon present or deposit pokemon in the gyms of your team. If you challenge an opposing team's gym and win that gym's prestige decreases. Once the prestige of a gym has been reset (by winning one or more times) i pokemon present return to their coaches and the gym is free. If you lose the challenge, the prestige of the gym increases. Once a certain prestige is reached, the level of the gym goes up and the trainers of that team can deposit more pokemon (one pokemon per trainer). So if the gym is level 4, four trainers from that team will be able to deposit pokemon in it making it more difficult to beat it.
7. Can I challenge my team or team?
Yes, but when you attack your or your team's gym, you can only choose one of your pokemon for battle. This way you "train" your pokemon. In case of victory, the prestige of the alestra increases, the trained pokemon is upgraded and you get experience points. In case of defeat nothing happens.
9. Can I defend myself from enemy pokemon attacks?
Yes, to do this you have to "swipe" (drag your pokemon left or right) while the enemy pokemon attacks you.
10. Attacking fills a heavenly bar on the top left. What does it represent?
Each pokemon has 2 different attacks. The light blue bar allows you to use the second attack (generally stronger than the first). The bar can be made up of several “pieces”, each piece allows you to use the special attack once. When at least one piece is complete press and hold your pokemon to launch the attack.
11. How do I get pokeball and other tools?
Approaching the pokestops (those celestial "cubes" on the map) they open. By touching the pokestop the image of the point of interest is shown and by swiping (by dragging your finger from right to left or from left to right) the image turns on itself and the pokestop releases objects. By touching the objects they end up in the backpack.
12. How many items can I carry with me?
350 objects and 250 pokemon can be packed in the backpack
13. How do I evolve pokemon?
Every time you catch a pokemon or hatch an egg you get some "candy" from that pokemon. To evolve a pokemon it is necessary to collect the necessary candies and then press the "evolve" button on the pokemon card
14. Graphic interface
Under the level of my pokemon, if you make a case, there is an icon with a man next to a 2 and behind pinsir there is a twin. This means that besides me a second trainer was challenging at that time that gym. The time available (timer on top) is smaller but the enemy pokemon gets much more damage (I think the damage done by allthe coaches present)
In the shop, on the top right, there is a shield with a number. The number represents the Pokemon of the player deposited in a gym. By touching the shield you will receive 10 coins for each pokemon. Once you have withdrawn the prize, however, you will have to wait 21h before requesting it again
Approaching a gym an animation shows if other coaches are fighting at that time
At 10 level, superpositions are unlocked (if used on a pokemon they return it to 50ps) and fortunuova (if you use double the acquired experience points for 30 min)
When challenging a gym in your team, prestige rises even if you do not beat all the pokemons present. For example, these are the experience and the prestige obtained after battling 2 pokemon on 3 of the gym.
As you capture a Pokémon, if you hold down the Ball you can notice a circle that expands and narrows around the lens to see the difficulty of capturing:
finanacing - Easy to capture, probably will not come out of Poké Ball
Orange - Pretty easy to capture, it could get out of Poké Ball
Red - Hard to capture, it will probably come out of Poké Ball
If you center the colored circle you get a bonus, but the smaller the bonus is
