The colored icons reveal the drawing of a creature. You have already encountered these Pokémons in the previous game.

The grayed out icons indicate the Pokémons which you are yet to encounter. You need to tap on the box.

  • There will be little footprint markings under each Pokémon. The number of footprints suggests how far away a Pokémon is.
  • If you see a single footprint or no footprints, it will indicate that the Pokémon is close to you.
  • If there are little bursts of leaves on the map, it hints at the place where the nearby Pokémon could be hidden.
  • If there are two or three footprints under any Pokémon, the creature is away, and you will have to walk around a bit more to catch it.
