Pokémon Go Tips: Before You Arrive
- Update your app. Do you have the most current version of the Pokémon app? Update at home in case your signal isn’t as strong at Six Flags Over Georgia. The newer version is more secure and crashes less often.
- Bring a mobile charger. Let’s face it. Pokémon Go can be a drain on your battery life. Just pop in a mobile charger to give you a boost and get you through the whole day!
- Preserve your battery. Do what you can to limit the apps and system programs that will drain your phone battery during your day at Six Flags Over Georgia. Try out your phone’s built-in power-saving mode, if it has one. Though you might want to test it with Pokémon Go before you arrive. It might interfere with the app. If the power-saving mode doesn’t work or you don’t have one consider lowering your screen brightness, muting the volume, disabling background apps, and turn off Bluetooth and wi-fi.
- Use the game’s built-in power saving mode. When in the game, click the Pokéball, click Settings, then check the box next to “Battery Saver.” This will dim the screen on your phone whenever it is upside down (or in your pocket).
- Wear sunscreen. You’re outside. And in the South. And probably will be near water during the day. Protect your skin! Nobody will be impressed with your skills as a trainer if you come home looking like Crawdaunt or a Corphish.
- Stock up on Poké-supplies. Make sure you bring plenty of Pokéballs, Great Balls, Master Balls, Incense, Lures and a (virtual) bag big enough to carry everything.
Pokémon Go Tips: While At The Park
- Turn off augmented reality. Though this feature can make the game more fun, it also makes it harder to hit the Pokémon with your Pokéballs. And it uses up more battery.
- Visit every Pokéstop you see. Did you know you get 50XP for every PokéStop you visit, even if you don’t pick up any items? Do it!
- Don’t waste time at PokéStops. After you spin the sign you don’t have to click all of the bubbles to claim your loot — just click the (X) at the bottom to collect the items.
- Keep only the Pokémon with the highest CP. Depending on how much you play, you will collect dozens of Pokémon during your visit. If you are running out of room, save only the Pokémon with the highest CP. Transfer the rest to the Professor.
Pokémon Go Tips: Make the Most of Your Visit
- Look for floating leaves. That’s where you can find the closest Pokémon.
- Keep an eye on the tracker. It’s in the lower right corner of your app. It tells you how close nearby Pokémon are. Each footprint is approximately 100 meters.
- Showering petals at a Pokéstop means that someone has activated a Lure! Head over to benefit from their generosity. Conversely, activate a Lure of your own at a Pokéstop and you’ll be surprised at how many friends you make.
- Use good Poké-targeting skills. The last thing you want to do when you’re far away from home is waste valuable Pokéball. Always until the green, yellow or red target circle is at its smallest before you throw.
- Did you miss? Grab that Pokéball! If you get it before it disappears it will be returned to your inventory.
- Ride the roller coasters. You are at Six Flags Over Georgia, remember?
Pokémon Go Tips: Exercise Safe Training Practices
- Don’t go into unauthorized areas. Under no circumstances should you go into any areas that aren’t clearly open to the public. Don’t go backstage, don’t crawl past any barriers. Just don’t.
- Don’t try to collect Pokémon on rides. Besides the fact that it is really dangerous, you could lose your phone and that will be the end of your training for the day. Plus, if a Team Member sees you doing it you will be asked to leave the park.
- Be aware of your surroundings! Look up from your screen once in awhile. And be safe.
