There are many ways to get exercise and enjoy the outdoors, but it was not until the release of Pokémon GO that players were able to actually walk around while playing! Here is a step by step guide on how to turn on Motion and Fitness, so you can get in shape while playing the game.
Step 1 : Download Pokémon GO and sign in using your Google account.
Step 2: On the Pokémon GO main menu, touch the PokéBall icon and then touch Settings.
Step 3: Touch on “Pokémon Go Plus” and turn on “Bluetooth”. If you do not have a Pokémon GO Plus, continue to Step 4. If you have a Pokémon GO Plus, go back to Step 2.
Step 4: Touch on “Pokémon Go Plus” again and slide “Notifications” all the way up.
(This will allow you to see and respond to notifications, just like on your phone. However, you can also enable the features on your phone without the GO Plus)
Step 5: Go back up to “Pokémon GO Plus” and touch “Alter Notification Settings”. A new page will appear, slide “Motions and Fitness” all the way up.
How to Play Pokémon Go Without GPS
If you have not installed the app Pokémon GO, you will have to download it to your phone’s app store (this is the same for iOS and Android). The game is free and worth trying, although it seems that most players are spending more time than expected playing the game. Once it is installed on your phone, go out into your surroundings and explore! Please note that as of this writing, there aren’t any bot collectible monsters anywhere near my town. I hope this changes soon so I can play some real Pokémon GO!
First, you must use WIFI to connect to the app. There are computers out in the world that have the app and will allow you to connect. If those locations no longer exist or are only available during daylight hours, try finding a place with a simpler internet connection for a better chance of being connected. You may need access to wifi if you want to add friends and start tracking your progress. The setting to allow this is on the main menu.
Get a free Pokéball if you can! [HINT]When you are in your home, check the computer that has your bank account information on it (if possible) and see if you have any Pokéballs for free. It may be a computer that is not connected to the internet or something else, but it will most likely have Pokémon Go on it. You can use the application to scan a QR code off of any business near where the computer is located. This will help you to connect and get Pokéballs for free.
How to Play Pokémon Go Without Data Connection
If you do not have an Internet connection, you can still play Pokémon Go! You will only be able to see other trainers nearby and perhaps catch some Pokémon. If you are in a location with no data coverage, with or without a WiFi hotspot, try waving your phone to show other Pokémon players that you are available for a match. You will not be able to send your Pokémon or trade them with other players. You can still see the map and make it appear on your screen as if there was a signal, though. With no data coverage, you might need to look at the map more often to make sure you’re staying within your friend’s vicinity, but it’s still fun. And while it might not be realistic to not have Internet, these tips will help!
Here is how to play without data:
1.Enable flight mode.
2.Enable do not disturb.
3.Turn off Bluetooth and Wifi.
How to Turn On Motion Sensor & Fitness in Pokémon Go
If you have been playing the game, you might have noticed that it asks you to turn on the “Fitness” and “Move” component. To do so, open your phone’s settings app by going to your phone’s home screen and selecting it from the app drawer. In the settings, scroll down until you see Pokémon Go in the list of all apps. This is where you need to tap on the app’s name. Now locate and tap on “Motion & Fitness” in the settings. A pop-up will appear, asking if you would like to turn motion and fitness on or off. Please select “on” and follow the instructions to complete the process. When the process is done, go to your Pokémon Go app and you will notice that motion and fitness are turned on. Enjoy the game!
