Pokémon GO gives you a free stash of PokeBalls early on, but for you to keep getting items for free, you've got to track down a PokeStop. PokeStops randomly surface on your map automatically. When you're near them, their marker will change, allowing you to spin it and collect all the treasures that it offers. Take note: PokeStops are usually local landmarks.

PokeRadar users report from the players that already live in your area to help you locate where specific creatures in the game are found around your neighborhood.
