Visit PokéStops

Visiting a PokéStop will allow you to gather items such as Poké Balls, Potions, Eggs, and Revives. To interact with a PokéStop, you’ll first need to get in range of it before it’ll become active. Once you are close enough, it’ll change shape and become active. At this point you are ready to tap on it.

Pro tip: You can tap X and it’ll auto collect the items for you!

Cool down / XP

You gain 50 XP and the PokéStop will turn slightly pink indicating the 5 minute cool down you need to wait before obtaining items from that PokéStop again. The color of the PokéStop will slowly turn to blue during the cool down period, returning back to it’s normal color when it’s ready to be visited again. There is no limit to how many times you may visit a PokéStop.
