‘Pokemon Go’ Tips, Tricks: How To Use Nearby Feature Through PokeStops; ‘Pokemon Prism’ Leaks Online

"Pokemon Go" Nearby feature provides the players with an idea where to find the Pokemon and gives the direction as well. Learning where to find the Pokemon allows them to focus on catching the better creatures, which is the initial step in becoming a master trainer in the game.

PokeStops are the key to "Pokemon Go" Nearby feature

In the "Pokemon Go" map, there is a white bar found at the bottom of the right-hand corner that can be tapped to bring up the Nearby feature menu. This menu displays the PokeStop photo disc images, along with pictures of Pokemon.

According to reports, each photo disc will correspond to a local PokeStop. The "Pokemon Go" players will only need to click on one of these photo disc images in order to go back to the "Pokemon Go" map, and find the PokeStop being asked, which will be highlighted with a pink footprint icon.

"Pokemon Go" still has the footprint system within its game to represent a relative system. However,  reports claim that it is unclear what exactly the distance those footprints represent, Tech.Mic reported.

"Pokemon Prism" ROM leaks online

"Pokemon Prism" has reportedly been in development for the past eight years by Adam Koolboyman. Based on reviews, the game appears largely the same with "Pokemon Crystal", except for the new protagonist, two new types of creatures - Sound and Gas - and includes 252 Pokemon over four generations of the game.

The said features, based on the reports,  are what would have been allowed if Nintendo did not ask the developer to end the development of the project. In spite of this, the "Pokemon Prism" remains to spread online. A group of leakers reportedly took to PasteBin to reveal who they were and shared how players could still play the game following reports that "Pokemon Prism" was cancelled, according  to Tech.Mic.
