Pokémon Go Tips, Tricks: Catching Rare Pokémon
Pokemon Go Niantic Official Blog

Pokémon Go is finally out, and now, it’s a matter of playing the game right and making the most out of it. So how do you catch a rare Pokémon and revive your monsters?


Healing and Reviving Pokémon

It’s all about knowing how to play the game. Now that Pokémon Go is out, the next question is, how can you catch, train, fight and heal your Pokémon?

For healing or reviving a pocket monster, try these steps:

  • Click on the Poke Ball icon at the bottom of the map screen.
  • Choose Items:
    • If your Pokémon has 0 HP left, select Revive.
    • If your Pokémon has 1 or more HP, select Potion.

The following screen should reveal which of the Pokémon are fainted or injured. Choose the monster to heal and repeal the same steps for all fainted and injured Pokémon.

According to iDigitalTimes, revives can bring back fainted Pokémon but cannot heal the monsters. Likewise, Basic Potions only offer healing abilities up to 20 HP. Pokémon with higher levels may need more than one potion to heal completely.

For players without Revives or Potions, they can go to PokeStops. Give the icons a spin to get some. Although most PokeStops come with Poke Balls, there are also chances for Eggs, Revives or Potions. 

Finding Rare Pokémon

For players who want to catch other kinds of Pokémon, they may need to travel. According to Digg, users can look through patches of rustling grass to find some wild or rare Pokémon. Players increase their chances of getting them if they walk towards them.

“We’ve noticed that these patches are more commonly found in parks and wooded areas, so if there are any of those near you, try heading there first. You can also try looking for Pokémon near sources of water,” said Digg.

If there are no Pokémon popping out, players can tap the lower right hand bar on the main screen to see a “nearby menu.” This should reveal the Pokémon in the specified area.
