We have the largest collection of new and old Pokemon GO Tips for Advanced Trainers and Beginners alike. Without further ado:

Egg tips

  • Cruise boats go slow enough to receive candies and hatch eggs!
  • You can tap the “Oh?” screen with two fingers to skip the hatch animation (thanks u/Robdog777 and u/Fuzati)


  • Tapping on the “transfer succeeded” banner dismisses it

Gym and Battle tips

  • Swiping up during a gym battle brings up the switch Pokemon screen
  • Tapping multiple Pokemon at once in the heal/revive screens heals/revives every Pokemon tapped, so you don’t have to heal/revive individually (thanks u/johnsmusicbox)

General tips

  • Clicking on the compass aligns the view with north, clicking again dynamically moves the view to align with where your phone is facing
  • There is a slider at the side of the Pokemon screen that allows you to scroll through the entire list without dragging up multiple times (thanks u/DynamoPro)
  • Press and hold the Pokeball menu button then drag and release on whichever thing you want to open, saving an extra tap (thanks u/Handtuch1)
  • If you tap to the left or right of a Pokemon’s CP number when looking at its details, you will navigate to the previous or next Pokemon in the list (thanks u/Nriqg)
  • On the map screen tap once then quickly press and hold to zoom in and out by moving your finger up and down (during the hold), an alternative to pinch to zoom. (thanks u/chrissulli13)
  • Clicking the Candy icon in the buddy screen allows you to see your buddy’s CP/Moves/Total Candy Count. (Thanks u/maulpets)
  • When you delete a Pokémon’s name a press “OK” it will revert to its default name (Thanks u/Fuzati)

Appraisal and Evolution

  • If you tap the appraisal screen with 1, 2, or 3 fingers, it’ll skip that many screens. Caps at 3 fingers. (thanks u/pppeeepppsssiii)
  • Evolving a Pokemon awards you with one candy. So if you have a Squirtle and 124 candy, you’ll have the 100 for a Blastoise after evolving to Wartortle. (thanks u/iliketoast714)
