In Pokémon GO, players follow a map that tells them where to find Pokémon, but usually, they catch different types of creatures that appear depending on the environment players are in. However, rare Pokémon appear from time to time and many struggle to find them, but the Ingress map is very useful and comes to their aid.
Pokémon Go was released exactly ten days ago and it’s already played by millions people all over the world. Niantic has experienced servers issues after releasing the game in the US and it had to delay the launch in Europe, but now, it seems that some of the problems have been fixed and people from many European countries have taken streets by assault in pursuit of Pokémon to catch.
Players have either an iOS or Android compatible device and using the GPS and camera, they are able to capture Pokémon. They must follow a map that tells them if a Pokémon is far from them or nearby and they must get to them before other players are catching them. But it’s frustrating to hunt rare Pokémon and to not be able to catch them because other players move quicker and get their hands on these creatures.
But, with the help of Ingress, players can use the map to identify rare Pokémon easier. The Ingress map offers two important features: Portals (many being converted to Pokéstops and gyms) and XM fields (here can be found Pokémon spawn points) that appear as white dots, marking areas where there’s more cellular usage. This way, players will know which the most crowded areas are, so they’ll avoid them in order to save battery life and they will go to less circulated areas to search for rare Pokémon.
These are the rare Pokémon that players have captured so far: Charizard, Ditto, Omastar, Charmeleon, Dragonair, Muk, Vaporeon, Machamp, Ivysaur, Venusaur, Blastoise, Nidoqueen, Nidoking, Vileplume, Poliwrath, Alakazam, Weepinbell, Victreebel, Slowbro, Marowak, Lickitung, Weezing, Magmar, Tauros, Gyrados, Lapras, Dragonite and Sandslash.
