How To Sign Up for Pokemon Go

Looking to join in on the action of catching pokemon in the real world, but not sure how to sign up for the game everyone is talking about? Look no further, it's just a few quick steps and soon you'll be joining the ranks of people aspiring to be true pokemon masters!

Step 1)Download the app.
The first thing you are going to need to do is download the app onto your phone, or possibly tablet if you so choose. If it is an apple product then the game will be available in the app store if you perform a search for it. If you use an android device then you will have to go into the google play store to do this search and start the download. In both cases you may need to verify your google account or apple ID in order to initiate the download.



Step 2)Sign in to the game.
Open the app once it has finished installing, and you will be asked to sign in using either google, or a trainer ID. If you have a gmail account then you can go ahead and sign in to that and it will create a profile for you here. If not, then you'll have to register on the pokemon trainer website in order to create your profile. If you register on the pokemon trainer website you'll have to provide an email address where they will send a confirmation email to, and if you don't confirm your address is correct then it will lock you out of the game after going two days without confirming. So make sure you enter your email correctly and go verify this right away, if you provide incorrect information you could lose all your progress over a couple of days.



Step 3)Set up your avatar.
After a brief introduction to the game, you'll be asked to set up your own avatar and a name for yourself. Other people in game will see this name if you take over any gyms, so keep that in mind. Also, you can customize your avatar over again at any time in game so nothing you set up for yourself there is permanent. Check out my guide here on how to customize your avatar after you have already gone past this setup stage.
