    Default What does shaking grass mean in Pokemon Go?

    I keep seeing this as I'm moving about. What does it mean? I keep tapping on it when I see it but nothing seems to happen.

    Some people claim that it means there's a Pokmon either at the spot or nearby.

    Yeah. If you walk to that point a wild Pokemon will appear and you should be able to capture it.

    as it's been said, like in the original games it indicates Pokemon nearby, however you can't bank on that alone - also keep an eye on the 'nearby' tab in the bottom corner, they'll work in concert to guide you to wild Pokemon.

    That doesn't seem to work for me..... do I need to hang out near the leaves? I've even turned on an incense and nothing happens!

    I think that was something that happened by luck but haven't been able to get consistent results from it lately.

    From what I have figured out so far, the grass leads you to Pokemon generally, but is not a given. The foot prints and "nearby" bar are much better to use. 1 foot step is closest, 2 in middle, 3 furthest. The box will flash green if you are walking in the right direction, and the foot prints should get lower.

    Could be an earthquake. The only logical explanation.

    There are zero earthquakes in Pokmon Go. As indicated in this thread, the waving grass most likely signals a Pokmon nearby.

    Earlier versions weren't like that, it happened in one of the updates. Hopefully fixed soon

    When grass appear, it means that a Pokemon is near you. Although Pokemon move too, so you might not find the Pokemon in the same spot as the grass. Just move around that area and you will find a Pokemon.
