Which Pokémon Go team should you pick?

67

Instinct, Mystic and Valor. Three teams from which you'll choose. And you'll want to choose wisely.

So you've finally reached Level 5 in Pokémon Go. That opens up an entire new world of gameplay. Gyms are now a huge deal. You can actually do things with them.

But more important is that you can now join one of three teams. (Remember factions from Ingress? Same sort of thing.) And once you're on a team, it's time to do team stuff. Like get jackets made, come up with a theme song and learn a cool dap. (That's a secret handshake, boys and girls.)

Here's what you need to know about the three teams in Pokémon Go:

Does it matter which Pokémon Go team you choose?

Yes! It matters a great deal! It's everything, really! Only, no. It doesn't matter at all. That is, gameplay is the same for each of the teams. One isn't inherently better than another. It's when a team is acting as a group that things get interesting. It's the makeup of the entire team itself — the individual levels and items from each player — that makes a difference.

So you'll probably want to pair up with people you know. Or, if you prefer confrontation, play on a different team than someone you're actively playing with.

Team Instinct

This team is yellow. So if you don't like yellow, you'll want to look elsewhere. And it's led by Spark. And Spark thinks that you should trust your instincts. (Thus the name of the team. Instinct.)

The Instinct logo is, of course, none other than that beautiful bird Zapdos.

Team Mystic

Mystic is blue, with Articuno (that's another legendary bird, if you're just getting into the Pokémon world), leading the way. Blanche leads Mystic and employs that sort of calm analysis you'd expect from someone who chases Pokémon while wearing boots.

Team Valor

Candela leads Valor — the red team. And Candela's bird is Moltres. If you think Valor projects an air of power, well, you're right. Training and strength are at the top of this team's playbook.

Can you change your team?

Nope. Currently you're not allowed to change your team on Pokémon Go, and for the obvious reasons. (Ingress allowed a change, for what that's worth.) So maybe ask your friends before deciding which team you want to join. See who's picked what.

And choose wisely.

How much mobile data does Pokémon Go use?

How much mobile data does Pokémon Go use?

How much of my monthly mobile data is being used up by Pokémon Go?

Pokémon Go is a really fun game, and part of what makes it so interesting is the fact that you need to go outside and move around to play it effectively. That of course means you'll be out of the range of your home Wi-Fi network, using up mobile data as you walk around. Some "tricks" like downloading offline maps in Google Maps won't actually save you any data usage (though it's a great feature for Maps!), and unfortunately the Pokémon Go app itself can't really limit data usage much.

But if you're looking to cut down on the amount of data you're using overall when out-and-about playing Pokémon Go, we're here to help!

How to play Pokémon Go

14

Here's how to download, install, and quickly begin playing Pokémon Go!

Pokémon Go is everywhere, and that's no accident! It's a fun, free game that's accessible to anyone, in any city. But getting started with the game takes a bit of setup, so here's what you need to know.

How to download and install Pokémon Go from the Play Store

Downloading Pokémon Go is easy! Some Android phones may see different login options or icon placements depending on the type of device, but these instructions should apply to most people.

Note: If you're on a computer, you can skip steps 1-3 by downloading Pokémon Go directly from the Google Play Store in your browser.

  1. Tap on Play Store icon. This will be on your home page or in your app drawer.
  2. Tap the search bar. Type pokemon go.
  3. Tap Install button.

  4. Once download, tap Pokémon Go icon on home screen or app drawer.
  5. Tap accept on four permissions (Android 6.0+ only).
  6. Tap Sign up with Google. If there is more than one account, choose primary account.
  7. Enter birth date (if applicable).

  8. Accept terms and conditions.
  9. Proceed through style selection.

How to get started playing

Once you've chosen your character and style, you have to choose your first Pokémon! There are three choices: Bulbasaur, Squirtle, or Charmander (or Pikachu, if you're deft).

  1. Tap on your starter Pokémon.
  2. Enable camera for AR.
  3. Flick PokéBall towards Pokémon.
  4. Capture Pokemon. Celebrate!

That's it! Now you're ready to start walking around and levelling up your character.

How to level up your trainer in Pokémon Go

How to level up your trainer in Pokémon Go

How do I level up my trainer in Pokémon Go?

You can't expect to be the best trainer in your city — let alone the world — if you're stuck at level one! In Pokémon Go it's not only important to raise the Combat Power (CP) of your Pokémon, but you also need to raise the level of your trainer.

Why is my trainer level important?

Raising your trainer level enables you to find stronger and rarer Pokémon in the wild, which means as you level up, you should stop running into low level Rattatas everywhere you go.

On top of finding better wild Pokémon, raising your trainer level also allows you to increase your Pokémon's (CP) even more. What does that boil down to? The higher your trainer level, the stronger you can make your Pokémon.

How do I increase my trainer level in Pokémon Go?

In order to level up your trainer, you need to collect experience points (XP). There are various tasks in the game that grant you XP towards your trainer level, and all of them are fairly straightforward.

  1. Catching Pokémon: The amount of XP you gain catching Pokémon varies based on a few factors, like how you throw your Pokéball and how many times you have caught that same Pokémon before.
  2. Evolving Pokémon: Whenever you have enough Candies to evolve any Pokémon you own, you will get 500 XP.
  3. Hatching a Pokémon: Any time one of your Pokémon eggs hatch, you will receive 200 XP. You hatch eggs by walking (distance, not steps), so get moving!
  4. Visiting a PokéStop: Stopping by a PokéStop will earn you 50 XP.
  5. Battling at a Gym: Whether it's a friendly Gym or one of a rival team, you will earn XP for battling. The amount of XP will vary based on how many Pokémon are stationed at the Gym and how difficult they are to defeat.

What level are you?

Are you top trainer in your city? What level are you and what's your favorite way to level up?

How to add your Dropbox to the Files app on your Chromebook

2

Cloud computing means you can have your files anywhere. If you use Dropbox and a Chromebook, this one's for you.

Here's a handy little trick that adds your Dropbox files to the Files app on your Chromebook. It's done through a third-party extension called File System for Dropbox, and it's far better than Dropbox's official Chrome app.

What it does is mount your Dropbox as a remote drive so it appears in the Files app the same way your Google Drive does. It doesn't sync anything like the official Dropbox desktop app, so you won't have to worry about eating away all of your storage. It's a Chrome OS-only app, so don't try to install it on your Windows or Mac computer.

If you have any shared directories on your computer at work or at home, you know how this works. It's the same thing — you get a listing and preview of all the files and folders in Dropbox, and if you want to open or share one it has to pull a copy from the cloud. You can download the file to your Chromebook by copying it and pasting it somewhere on your local storage, or share it directly.

The sharing directly part can be a bit limited. If the app or web page you're uploading a file to calls for the file manager to pick your file, it will work. It pulls a copy down to your local cache, then uploads it. If the app or web page uses its own uploading tool, you'll have to manually copy the file from Dropbox to your Downloads folder before you can upload it. Even then, it's still easier than going to Dropbox's website to grab a copy, so you win either way.

It's not a perfect solution — those are hard to come by. But it's the best way to integrate Dropbox with your Chromebook. As a bonus, the developer also has apps for Chrome that do the same thing with OneDrive, any Windows or Samba shared folder(s) and any SFTP server.

If you're like us and have a ton of stuff in your Dropbox (and are too lazy to move it to Google Drive) give this one a try.

19

You might have noticed that Pokémon GO is sort of popular. Like a gajillion people are playing it, and the demand is such that the servers themselves are being crushed. Seems like most everyone wants to catch them all ...
