Learn to perform the “L Throw” to capture Pokemon more easily

If you are in the earth and you use the Internet, you must know Pokemon Go. It’s a a free-to-play, location-based augmented reality game. In the game, players use a mobile device’s GPS capability to locate, capture, battle, and train virtual creatures, called Pokémon, who appear on the screen as if they were in the same real-world location as the player. Maybe that’s why so many people addict in the game. The game brings people back in the real world. It is breaking download records with over 20 million downloads since it was announced on July 6.

It quickly became a global phenomenon and was one of the most used mobile apps, reportedly having been downloaded by more than 100 million people worldwide.  The game encourage people go outside and enjoy the real world. At the beginning of this month, Nitantic has updated the game for some reasons. After the update, we found that PokeVision tracking system has gone and it’s more difficult to catch Pokemon by throwing Poke balls. The players become angry.

They have to waste their balls to throw, throw, and throw but get nothing. Especially in the rare Pokemon appears case, they always have no ball to throw. They must get balls in Pokestops but it’s set in public area and not convenient to get Pokeballs and items. Also the disappear of tracking system let people angry, but this thing makes players annoying. It’s gotta be the despondent feeling of anger that a missed Pokeball throw. Fortunately, a Redditor by the name of homu has developed a new throwing technique that will not only increase your Pokéball accuracy significantly, but also virtually take the hassle out of catching ’em all.

To perform the crafty throw, simply drag the Pokéball to the left side of the screen of your smartphone and release it once you reach the height of the Pokémon. The handy technique also has a variation for curveballs. It’s similar to the regular “L Throw”, but instead you need to curve the ball before pulling it to the side of your screen: As other Redditors remark, the “L Throw” can similarly be successfully performed from the right side of the screen, depending on which hand you use to throw Pokéballs with.

Still, don’t get too mad if you struggle to capture Pokémon successfully with the “L Throw”. Creator Niantic Labs recently confirmed there’s a bug that is affecting your chances to catch Pokémon and a slew of vexed Go players have already voiced their frustrations with the game’s janky capturing mechanism. Before they fixed this bug, maybe you should learn how to perform the “L Throw” in more detail. Hopefully, it makes the hunting experience a lot more enjoyable.
