    Pokemon Go Beginner's Guide

    I can't comment on your game, because I haven't played it. My only relevant comment was to disagree with you when you claimed the shiny new version was not fight based. The whole reason folks capture Pokémon in the new game is so they can build up their combatants, and duke it out.

    Sure, technically, one could wander around, catching Pokémon, without fighting. One could also play Ingress without ever building fields, or play Geocaching without ever actually looking for caches. But in both those examples, those players would be aberrations. Individuals playing outside the primary scope and intent of the game.With Pokémon Go, the primary objective is combat.

    Just to clarify Alistair's answer:In the game Ingress, players could submit locations for portals. In order to get approved, the proposed location had to meet certain guidelines. Specifically, each location had to have either a social value, like a church or mosque, a recreational value, like the entrance to a park, artistic value, like a sculpture or mural, or an historic value, like a pioneer house. These portals should also be in locations which the general public can visit. Part of the Portal submission process involved taking a picture of your suggested location, and submitting a name for the Portal. These pictures and names are identical to those submitted as Portals.When Niantic rolled out Pokémon Go, they used the same locations for Pokestops and Gyms.

I'm guessing they incorporated some sort of proximity regulations, as areas which had Portals every hundred feet or so, don't have the same number of Pokestops. They will still have a bunch, just not as much.

    Pokémon Go is also all about fighting.The difference between this game and all the past ones is that, in order to fight, you need to get off your backside and actually go to a gym.
