Pokémon Go by Niantic is a global phenomena, not just a game. After its release in 2016, this mobile exclusive game caught the eye of people and celebrities alike because of its unique augmented reality-based game play to capture creatures in real time anywhere and anytime: bedrooms, parks, subways, malls and more.
Thus, to keep trainers engrossed, Niantic releases limited time daily or hourly surprises like enrichment berries and Poké Balls for low prices available in the game Shop, or even a rear creature Spotting, or other surprise rewards. Therefore, it is important that trainers enable notifications on their iPhones to ‘stay alert of their surroundings’ at all time. We have jotted down easily to follow steps for you to turn Pokémon Go alerts on your iOS device.
Enable Pokémon Go Push Notifications
To get the best results, make sure that your smartphone and Pokémon Go are updated to the latest software and game version respectively.
- Go to Settings > Pokémon Go
- Tap on Notifications and turn the toggle on to receive daily or hourly surprises or alerts of nearby rear Pokémon
- Customize alert settings by selecting lock screen and/or notification center to view alerts, the mode to display the alerts preview (always, when unlocked or never), and set notification grouping options. Trainers can also select the notifications banner style, sounds, and badges.
Besides the mobile alerts, Niantic has Pokémon Go Plus wearable device which is designed to alert trainers of nearby PokéStops and Pokémon without looking at their mobile’s screens. Worn as a wrist band or used as a pin, when paired with an iPhone via Bluetooth, the Plus device vibrates and flashes its LED light to notify trainers. It retails for $34.99 and can also be worn as pride badge by Pokémon Go community members.
