What Are Follow Routes In Pokémon Go?
Pokemon Go was launched in 2016 and quickly became a sensation, thanks to its interactive Augmented Reality and millions of worldwide downloads.
The primary objective of Pokémon GO is to capture famous Pokémon creatures that appear superimposed on the real-world environment.
Therefore, the makers recently developed follow routes within the game.
It allows users to access potential routes to find new Pokémon creatures and other activities.
What Makes Pokemon Go Follow Routes Interesting?
Interestingly, these follow routes are embedded into the game, where you can access them to find creatures whenever you are around that area.
For example, water-type Pokémon are often found near bodies of water, while grass-type Pokémon are rampant in parks and forests.
However, follow routes are not the same as PokéStops and Gyms, which provide gathering and battling spots, although they may lead to one.
You may receive extra bonuses for exploring routes and earning Buddy Candy more quickly.
Moreover, you may get a new route badge for completing one for the first time and a Buddy Heart with a friend.
Remember, you are more likely to get the bonus XP, which helps you level the game by exploring new daily routes.
