Stupid question time.
Does the phone screen need to be on for the ap to tell me when pokemon is nearby? Or will the notifications for pokemons only pop up when the screen is on?
What do you do / how do you use the pokestops? When I went to one it didn't do anything, and I was trying to click pretty much everything but nothing would happen. It takes a while to get there for me, I have to go in a car with someone else driving, I didn't wanna make them stay parked there until I figured out what to do x.x
Also when I handed my friend my phone to take a look at what I meant by "There are now pokemon stops ANYWHERE" (I guess he thought I didn't know what the icon's looked like) he was in shock when he saw how far I would had to go for a pokecenter compared to them, as they live in the USA where everything is a lot closer and has a higher population. While I live in Canada, in the middle of a rural area that has been very slowly over the past 15 years been getting absorbed by the city expanding. (this is mostly the reason I would like to know how to use those stops, because they are ALL out of the way and I need someone to take to me to them. So I don't want to make them take me there for nothing =/)
