 How to Download Pokémon Go

When you have launched Pokémon Go, customize your avatar’s clothing. From the three Pokémon given to you, use one to catch other Pokémon near to you using your camera app. When you find a Pokémon closer to you, try to catch them using PokéBall at an aimed angle over its head like that when you play aiming games.

Note, the smaller the circle the easier to  easier to catch Pokémon. Here is the take, when the circle turns green, it shows that the Pokémon is almost easier to catch and when it turns orange, the farther to be caught and red is no go area.
