"Pokemon GO" being a worldwide hit in just a really short span of time, there is still a lot to be learned and discovered about the game. And so, here are some myths debunked about "Pokemon GO."

Tapping on your used Pokeball?

There is a rumor that has been circulating around Facebook, Twitter and in all forms of social media about "Pokemon GO." Rumor has it that if you tap a Pokeball that you have already thrown or used to capture a Pokemon, you can use that Pokeball over and over again.

Apparently this is totally wrong, it just gives an illusion that the "Pokemon GO" is picking up the Pokeball. If you'd take a look at the number of Pokeballs you have, it would not add any to your items bag.

Nearby Tab's distance miscalculation in "Pokemon GO"

As you play "Pokemon GO," you can see a tab on the lower-right corner of the screen a button or tab that shows different Pokemons nearby and the distance from the "Pokemon GO" trainer. Now supposedly it should show the exact distance of the Pokemon however, it looks like by default it shows all Pokemons are just 3 feet away from the "Pokemon GO" trainer.

Which also makes the list of Pokemons that are near the "Pokemon GO" inaccurate. Niantic has not provided any solutions for this in game bug but we can expect an update for "Pokemon GO" soon.

After all "Pokemon GO" is still at its baby stages so we can for sure expect more improvements in the game in the future.

That is just a couple of "Pokemon GO" myths that we're going to solve. Stay tuned to GamenGuide for more "Pokemon GO" news.
