Pokemon GO Walkthrough and Guide

Using Items


Without items, including the all important PokeBalls, a player cannot succeed in Pokemon GO. Items aren't just a luxury, but a necessity in the success of a Trainer within the game. Just about every item in the game can be obtained for free through PokeStops and Leveling Up, but a trainer can still buy a number of them from the Shop that aren't or when in need.

Some of these items - such as PokeBalls, Berries and the Camera - are used when in an Encounter with a Wild Pokemon. While other items like Healing Items, Eggs, Egg Incubators, Lucky Eggs and Incenses are used during regular gameplay. Yet even a few items have special uses: Lure Modules are used by connecting to a PokeStop to increase Pokemon Spawns, Evolution Items help a select few Pokemon Evolve, and the Bag and Pokemon Storage Upgrades happen automatically to their given areas after Purchase. (Always be wise when choosing exactly when and where to use a given item.)

Some items, truthfully, aren't needed, but they do increase a Trainer's chances at success in their own given ways. However, a number of items, such as PokeBalls and Healing Items, are absolutely needed if a player expects to win often in Pokemon GO.
