    Default What is a PokeStop?

    I arrive at a pokestop and tap on it, but nothing happens? Am I supposed to get something when I arrive at a pokestop? It's really not clear what you're supposed to do.

    If you spin the center circle at a pokestop, and you are within the footprint of that pokestop, it should give you some pokemon balls and other goodies. you can keep coming back to that stop every 15 minutes?? or so to get for free stuff. You can also attach lures to the pokestop to attract additional pokemon to that stop.

    You have to spin the center (swipe fast to the right or left) and it'll drop goodies for you. You can visit the same Pokestop every 10 minutes. If you see pink animated hearts floating around a Pokestop that means someone has dropped a Lure, so stick around for extra Pokemon to catch while the Lure is active (30 minutes if I memory serves).

    Running low on Pokballs, then a PokStop is your friend. But as my luck finds I'm getting 2 balls and a bunch of other stuff. Finally hit one that gave me 5!

    Pokemon Go guide explains that PokeStop is a location where Trainers can win items such as Pok Balls, Potions, and/or Eggs. Only At level 12, you can shake out the more powerful Great Balls, which increase the likelihood of capturing a wild Pokmon.
