Your guide to playing Pokémon GO at home is coming soon
There’s adventure everywhere! Even when you’re playing from the comfort of your home, there’s plenty to do in the world of Pokémon GO. The upcoming Play at Home section in the Poké Ball menu will soon be your go-to source for info on all the features that let you play the game in individual settings, wherever you are. Before Play at Home is released in the app, it will be available on the Pokémon GO website.
Play at Home will initially cover six categories: Catch, Gift, Battle, Research, Buddy, and Style. Take a quick refresher course on long-standing features, such as using Incense and dressing up your Trainer avatar with items from the Style Shop. You can also learn all about recent updates, such as how to get a daily bonus Field Research task without spinning a PokéStop and how to initiate a Trainer Battle via QR Code.
You can use all features detailed in Play at Home wherever you can play. We hope this guide will help you continue your Pokémon GO adventures.
