Pokémon Go is taking the world by storm. Every single day, you can see people – children and adults – walk through parks, neighbourhoods and even shopping centres trying to find new Pokémon to catch. Below are a few tips that everyone playing the hot new game should know. Grab your  smartphone and follow my suggestions; you'll become a poké-master in no time!

1. Razz Berries help you catch Pokémon! Don’t forget that the  game gives us some great tools to help grab those wild Pokémon. Throwing a Razz Berry at a critter before tossing your Pokeball can increase your chances of a secure catch. 
  
2. Turn off AR when catching Pokémon. It’s fun to see Pokémon pop up on your driveway, car dashboard, or best friend’s shoulder, but it can make it harder to catch the wild ones. Simply toggle AR off during a capture to have a static grassy area that’s much easier to see.

3. Add Lure Modules on Pokestops. When you are driving around looking for a good place to catch some Pokémon, pay attention to the Pokestops that look like they have confetti sprinkled on them. These have a lure module added, a handy  tool that attracts more Pokémon to the area. If you have any in your bag, add one to a nearby Pokestop. 
  
4. Hit up parks and places with lots of historic landmarks. The more Pokestops in the area, the better! There is a local park here with 8 Pokestops, thanks to dedication markers on several of the trees there. Anytime we venture to the park, we generally catch 20+ wild Pokémon within 45 minutes of being there. Plus, those Pokestops reset every 5 minutes, so we fill up our bags too!

5. Use a Lucky Egg when evolving. XP is needed to increase your trainer’s level, which will unlock more incubators and other goodies. When you stock up your evolution and use a lucky egg – which doubles the XP you earn for 30 minutes, you will level up much faster. I tend to do this in a specific area, like the park I mentioned. That way, I can double the XP received for catches as well as evolution. 
  
6. Find more Pokémon with the Nearby feature. To help you “catch em all”, the app has a Nearby popup in the bottom right corner. Tap this to see up to 9 wild Pokémon in the area. Selecting one will help increase the odds that you will find it. The footprints beneath each Pokémon shows you the distance it is from you . . . the fewer footprints means you are getting closer! 
 
7. Catch them all – even the Pidgeys and Ratattas! It can get boring seeing the same common  Pokémon, but they will help you gain more XP once you start evolving. Pidgeys and Ratattas only need 12 candies to evolve, so save them until you are ready to use a lucky egg (as mentioned in Tip 5) to maximum effect.
