The unbelievable madness for Pokémon Go seems to have completely driven the gaming fanatics. It’s like “The more you play, the hungrier you get.” Everyone– from school going kids to workaholic aunties-is enjoying every bit of this superb augmented reality game, don’t they?
I’m also after catching bonuses which give you bonus Trainer XP. Whenever you catch a Pokémon after throwing the Poké Ball in the center of the Pokémon’s surrounding big, medium, or small radar rings, you win XP.
As you toss the Poke Ball, a particular throw is accidentally invoked the Curve Ball. It may be slightly tricky, but you can master it. Moreover, curving your Poké Balls cannot just offer you more advantage for catching Pokemon but also a much better chance for cashing-in-on the higher-XP catch bonuses.
There are many ways to throw a curveball. While one way is just to bend your throw on the screen before releasing, the other is to only make small circles on the screen with the Pokéball before releasing it.
You can combine a curveball with the closing circle above for better execution. Since it’s a bit difficult to hit the Pokémon with a curveball, make sure you have lots of Pokéballs to hand before giving this trick shot.
There are as many as four catch bonuses:
“Nice!” happens when your ball can land at the time when the radar circle is at its widest. If you succeed in making the catch, you will get 10XP (experience point)
“Great!” happens when the ball lands about half the size of the white circle. It will give 50 XP.
“Excellent!” is when you can land the ball in the smallest radar circle. It gives you 100 XP.
“Curve- Happens when” your ball curves. It gives you both 10XP and a much better chance of catching the Pokémon.
