How do I make my Pokemon track my walk?

Answered by Willie Powers

To make your Pokemon track your walk, you can enable the Adventure Sync feature in the Pokemon Go app. Adventure Sync allows the game to track your walking distance even when the app is closed, which can be helpful for hatching eggs and earning buddy candy. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to turn on Adventure Sync:

1. Open the Pokemon Go app on your smartphone.
2. Look for the Poke Ball icon at the bottom center of the screen and tap on it.
3. This will open the main menu. From there, tap on “Settings,” which is represented by a gear icon.
4. In the Settings menu, you’ll see various options. Look for the “Adventure Sync” option and tap on the circle next to it to enable it.
5. Once you tap on the circle, a confirmation message will pop up. It will explain that Adventure Sync allows Pokemon Go to track your walking distance using your phone’s built-in fitness tracking capabilities. Tap on “Turn It On” to proceed.
6. Another pop-up message will appear, asking for permission to access your device’s motion and fitness activity. This is necessary for Adventure Sync to work properly. Tap on “OK” to grant permission.
7. After tapping “OK,” Adventure Sync will be enabled in Pokemon Go. You can now close the Settings menu and start walking. The app will track your distance in the background, even if you’re not actively playing the game.

It’s worth noting that Adventure Sync relies on your phone’s fitness tracking capabilities, such as the built-in step counter or connected fitness apps (e.g., Apple Health or Google Fit). Make sure you have these features enabled and set up on your device for accurate tracking.

Additionally, Adventure Sync can be customized further in the Settings menu. You can choose to receive a weekly summary of your walking distance, enable notifications for reaching milestones, and even sync your adventure data with other fitness apps.

By enabling Adventure Sync, you can make your Pokemon track your walk even when you’re not actively playing the game. It’s a convenient feature that helps you progress in Pokemon Go while going about your daily activities. So get out there, explore, and let your Pokemon accompany you on your adventures!
