If you’ve been wondering why a large number of people have been walking around in circles while staring at their smartphones, then the answer is Pokémon Go.

Pokémon Go uses a map based on the real world that allows you to catch various Pokémon that appear frequently near you and visit  real world landmarks known as ‘PokéStops’.

Now that you know the gist of it, you probably have a strong urge to join the ranks and play. Before you head out into the world of Pokémon Go, here are a few tips and tricks from GrabOne that will help you on your journey.


Before hunting

Minx scarfUnless you want an army of Zubats and Pidgeys in your Pokémon team (and trust me, you don’t), you’ll have to spend a lot of time hunting outdoors for something better.

Ensure that you can withstand the gruelling winter chills by wearing this warm and comfy Minx winter spot scarf. Now you’ll be able to battle through the terrains in style.

Prepare for constant battery usage with a 20000mAh portable power bank that’ll keep your phone – and your game – up and running. More battery = more hunting = happy trainer.
