    By the way I am part of team Valor lol...when the game told me how instinct was battling with that..and mystic was how you use a strategy and intelectual plans to battle. I thought of how when I played the Nintendo games I would level so I was about 10 to 15 above the gym at the time so Ithat did not matter the type nor breading. Just smash your way to victory. So boom might as well stay true to form lol

    5.16 per cent
    According to online tracking service Similar Web, Pokemon Go was installed on 5.16 per cent of all Android devices in the US by Friday 8 July, only 3 days after the app’s release. That's more than Tinder.

    3 per cent
    Over 3 per cent of the entire US Android population have not just downloaded but used the app. According to Similar Web, over 60 per cent of those who have downloaded it are using it daily.

    277 million
    Nintendo has sold more than 277 million Pokemon games to date, over 21.5 billion trading cards in 10 languages, and made 17 feature films over the last 20 years. Time will tell how Pokemon Go matches up to those numbers.

    $57.65 billion
    Pokemon sales and licences alone have resulted in Nintendo earning a whopping $57.65 billion in revenue as of 2015.

    4 million
    Outside of the US, users around the world have been trying to download Pokemon Go using an APK, bypassing the official app store. The main source, apkmirror.com, saw its traffic go from roughly 600,000 visits on 5 July to over four million visits on 6 July alone.

    $9 billion
    The stock market likes Pokemon Go too. Since Wednesday 6 July Nintendo stocks are up. Nintendo has seen more than $9bn (£6.9bn) added to the company's market value as investors see the huge potential.

    4 suspects, 11 victims
    Four suspects in O'Fallon, Missouri allegedly used Pokemon Go to lure at least 11 users into a trap. The suspects set locations on the app where players could find wild Pokemon. They then allegedly mugged them when they arrived at the location, stealing phones and personal belongings. The teens are said to have admitted to using the app as part of their criminal actions.

    1 dead body
    Shayla Wiggins found more than she bargained for when she went hunting for Pokemon near Big Wind River in Fremont County. She spied a genuine dead body in the water. She called the police, who have since stated that "the death appears to be accidental in nature and possible that of a drowning."

    £79.99
    That's the price of 14,500 PokeCoins in Pokemon Go in the UK. It's the most expensive in-app purchase you can get. Coins buy you accessories and things in the game, but sadly cost real money if you want to spend immediately. If you are patient you can save PokeCoins by playing the game.

    362 per cent
    Spotify streams of the Pokemon Theme "Gotta Catch 'Em All" have increased 362 per cent globally in the past week following the enormous success of Pokemon Go. Overall streams of Pokemon songs on Spotify have more than tripled.

    There are currently 197 thousand user-generated "Pokemon" playlists and a further 53 thousand simply titled "Pikachu".

    The top 5 most-streamed tracks on Spotify are...

    1. Pokemon Theme
    2. Pokerap
    3. Pokemon Johto
    4. Go Pokemon Go
    5. I Want To Be A Hero
    350,000
    Although the game is finally available for iOS and Android in the UK, 350,000 EE phone customers in the country were reportedly playing it before the official app was released.

    EE claims that many unique users appeared to be playing Pokemon Go on its UK network in the days after the US release and ahead of the game hitting Britain. That means more than a quarter of a million people managed to download the APK for Android or swap their iTunes accounts for one generated under false pretences.

    Installed it, but not sure exactly what to do :D I will admit that I have not immerse myself in the game, but only catch a few pokemon when waiting for friends. It does look weird when you pointing your cellphone to someone, and sticking your tongue (better chances to catch a pokemon if you stick your tongue out).

    Not sure what to do after catching pokemon, how am I suppose to train them? I need a Pokemon Go guide for noobs.

    You upgrade your Pokemon using stardust (gained from catching Pokemon) and candy (gained from catching and transferring specific Pokemon.)
    You evolve your Pokemon by collecting the aforementioned candy. Upgrading takes an increasingly large amount of stardust, whilst evolving is the same but with regards to candy.

    You gain XP for yourself by catching Pokemon, visiting Pokestops, hatching eggs, and training at gyms. Gaining XP levels you up. The higher your level the higher the chance you have of encountering rare and more powerful Pokemon, and the more items you gain access to. Gyms can only be accessed at Level 5+. Before you start training at gyms you must choose a team (#TEAM_MYSTIC_FTW.)

    Gyms operate on "prestige". Training at gyms owned by your team increases their prestige, whilst fighting at other team's gyms decreases theirs. When a gym's prestige is low enough it can be taken over. When taking over a gym you leave a Pokemon there to defend it, if beaten the Pokemon returns to you. When your Pokemon is defending a gym you can claim defender's points (coins and stardust) from the shop menu, but it can only be done once every 24 hours. Increasing the prestige of your gym can make it level up, meaning other team members can leave their Pokemon there to help defend it.

    Noob no more!
