'Pokemon Go' Hacks, Guide: 5 Most Believed, Yet FALSE Tricks Gamers Should Stop Doing

"Pokemon Go" tips do not come helpful all the time as some of the tips over the web are just fiction. So, here is a list of some of the widespread tips which are considered to be merely myths.

"Pokemon Go" charts that identify which Pokemons could be hatched from 2 km, 5 km and 10 km are reportedly useless. While it is more likely that a player could hatch a rare Pokemon from a 10 km egg, some players claimed that they were able to hatch rare Pokemons from 2 km eggs. It is also suggested that 10 km eggs produce more common Pokemons while 2 km eggs and 5 km eggs give out more rare Pokemons.

Another tip that seems to be a myth is the presence of legendary Pokemons. This can be classified as a myth for now as "Pokemon Go" has not released any of the rumored legendary Pokemon yet. Though it was previously reported that some players were able to catch such Pokemon, Niantic admitted that it was  a mistake and such Pokemon were revoked.

Players who try to shoot their Pokeballs in the hoop to capture Pokemon can now stop doing it as "Pokemon Go" does not require players to let the ball pass through the ring. Some players claimed that the ball needs to get through the colored ring to make a capture but this is just a myth.

An interesting "Pokemon Go" tip usually seen in forums is that incense will not work unless the player walks around. This can be considered half true as incense still attracts Pokemon even when the player is in stationary. However, if the player starts to move, incense gets better as more Pokemon in the vicinity get easily attracted, the more the player gets near to it.

"Pokemon Go" creatures Weedle, Pidgey, Caterpie and Rattata, on the other hand, are believed to be useless as they are impractical for battle. While this is true, these Pokemon could still be used to level up quickly in the game. Since it will only take 12 candies to evolve them, players can do more evolutions to get massive XP.
