Conquer the Gym located at your actual public library or firehouse (public facilities) with your team's combined powered-up Pokémon. "Pokéstops" will have potions and revives to help you achieve this feat.
As you continue your quest to “catch’em all”, make sure to give your Pokémon “Candy” and “Stardust” to increase their strength and evolve them! The extraordinary world of Pokémon has finally been made into a reality, which you can enjoy on your next quest out of the house.
