Pokémon Go has taken the world by storm, with more and more countries joining the fray every week – this week, Singapore happens to be the lucky victim.

People everywhere are seemingly running around aimlessly; even couch potatoes are out and about, looking at their phones for a sole purpose: to catch ’em all.

We’ve put together a list of 5 tricks to aid in your quest to beat the daily grind (Pokemon Go-wise, at least).

1. When using incense, walk around to attract more Pokemon

This might seem like something duh-worthy, but hear me out – according to the game’s code, incense will spawn Pokemon every 5 minutes if you’re standing still. But if you walk over 200 metres per minute, you can expect to see a Pokemon every 60 seconds.

2. Activate a Lucky Egg before mass-evolving low level Pokemon

Pidgeys and Caterpies are everywhere, and only require 12 candies to evolve.

Evolving a bunch of these is a great way to quickly level up your trainer profile – but your first course of business should be to activate a Lucky Egg.

Evolving a Pokemon gives you 500 XP, but a Lucky Egg doubles that, helping you earn a whopping 1000 XP instead.

3. Walk in a straight line to hatch eggs more efficiently

The game checks your location once every few minutes, which means if you walk 1km in a straight line, you’ll get credit for the full 1km. But if you choose to walk around a bend, you might only get credit for the diagonal distance – in this case, 0.71km.

4. You can choose which Pokemon to evolve Eevee into 

Every Pokemon fan knows that Gen 1 Eevee has three possible evolutions – Flareon, Vaporeon, or Jolteon.

But what newbies might not know is when it comes to Pokemon Go, which evolution it ends up having doesn’t have to depend on luck; as long as you make use of this… Hack.

By clicking on the pencil next to its name and changing it to either Sparky (Jolteon), Pyro (Flareon), or Rainer (Vaporeon), you can be the master of your own fate and dictate your Eevee’s final evolution.

5. Don’t take the MRT; take the bus

Public transport might be a good way to make your way around various Pokestops in the vicinity, but some might be better suited to your Pokemon Go-oriented needs than others.

Buses stop at bus stops and traffic lights – which have a relatively high concentration of Pokestops nearby. Also, they travel relatively slowly, giving you a decent chance at getting loot from any Stops you pass by.

MRTs, on the other hand, have a one-track mind of getting you to your destination as quickly as possible, leaving no room for the aspiring Pokemon master to be the very best.
