    What level is everyone?

    I just became 10
    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I got up to level 10 this morning!

    I'm currently on my way to Star Wars Celebration. Wonder whether people will judge me if I play Pokemon there...

    (I'm volunteering so won't actually be able to play anyway, but you know...)

    Can anyone who's played it, answer me something?

    I'm going around my neighbourhood and only after walking past a few pokestops I read on google, you have to swipe the picture to get pokeballs.

    Just that on the nearby list which is on the bottom right, it has 2 - 3 shaded figures, I clicked one then it just has that in the bottom right with 3 footprints beside it.

    How do I know where it is? It's quite irritating.

    You have to click on a gym that you can see on your map, then Prof. Willow will explain how gyms work.

    The footprints represent how far away the Pokemon is, the more footprints then the further away the Pokemon is. 0 means it is in your immediate vicinity although the exact distance each footprint represents is a bit iffy atm. Some sites are saying 1 footprint = 20m, 2 = 100m and 3 = 1km (which is completely incorrect imo) whereas others say each footprint represents 50m, which doesn't really work either. I've have Pokemon drop from 3 footprints to 1 footprint in the space of 10m, so it is all a bit wibbly wobbly atm. You can't find out which direction the Pokemon is in, so you need to explore a bit first.

    Every now and again, there's a burst of leaves I see on the map, is that a hint as to where it is?

    still only 3 haven't really had enough time to get any exp.The most action I got was when I was driving around earlier and pulled over a few times. Managed to catch about 4 Pokemon and visit 2 stops. Other than that I've had no GPS signal when I'm inside.*

    Can't be 1km, way too far to be realistic based on my riding around and periodically checking

    The rustling of leaves signifies that there might be a Pokemon over there, yeah. It doesn't always work though.

    No, I completely agree. 1km is far too wide a radius for it to be useful anyways.

    * I haven't seen Charmander yet 😟. I picked Squirtle to start with, and have seen a few of him around but have only seen one Bulbasaur.

    * Caught a Jigglypuff during lunch though 😄

    Yeah, it's a bit weird like that. The "Nearby" feature doesn't always work too well. I know that my friends and I usually have completely different Pokemon nearby despite being 1 ft apart .
