    Default How do footprints work in Pokemon Go?

    What do footprints accomplish in Pokemon GO? I am not understanding how they work?
  2. Best Answer

    Foot prints accomplish nothing. What they tell you is how far away that Pokmon is from you. 3 foot prints is the furthest away, and no foot prints is in your immediate vicinity and will pop up for you to catch.

    Lol. I agree that they don't really help bc it doesn't tell you which direction. You just know they are near(ish) and it's frustrating. But I'm not that serious about the game, so I don't care a ton. I just bring up the game when I'm walking around and if it buzzes, I look to see if I can catch one.

    Pretty much walking around staring at the screen doesn't do you any good. It'll vibrate when it's time to look!

    I'm wondering if it's the latest updates. I can't remember seeing anything less than 3 since we got 1.0.1 and 1.0.2.
