This screen is probably where most people will spend the majority of their time. From here you can see Gyms, Pokéspots, and wild Pokémon. All 3 of those things must be within the circle that pulsates around your avatar for you to be able to interact with them.
Gyms – There are 4 kinds of Gyms: Gray (unclaimed), Yellow, Red, and Blue. Before you can interact with gyms, you’ll be asked to join one of three teams: these teams correspond with the gym colors: YRB. While you can lay claim to gray gyms with no resistance, colored gyms are a little different.
For example, if you’re a member of the yellow team and go to a blue gym, you’ll have to defeat the gym members to take control of it. If you’re on the blue team and go to a blue gym, however, you can add your own Pokémon to it to make it more powerful.
Pokéspots – These are the blue pillars spread across the overworld. They give you items such as Pokéballs, Eggs, Revives, etc. They are almost always landmarks such as a monument or big business. To interact with them, you must get close enough so that the blue cube turns into a Pokéball icon. Then you spin the image in the middle.
Wild Pokémon – This is where things get a little more confusing. The rustling grass that can be seen usually indicates that there is a wild Pokémon nearby. If you see a Pokémon appear in the overworld, simply tap it to begin the catching process.
#9 – Trainer Info
Red – Name
Green – Current Level and XP
Black – Journal
Orange – Coins (we’ll cover this more later)
Blue – Team
Name – Your name is pretty self-explanitory: it’s your name.
Level – Your level is displayed here, as well as your progress towards your next level.
Journal – Your journal keeps tracks of Pokémon you capture and Pokéstops you interact with.
Coins – You can buy things such as Pokéballs and Incense with these.
Team – The team you sided with. This dictates which gyms you can help or battle against.
#10 – Journal
Not much to say about this that hasn’t been said already: it keeps track of your catches and Pokéstops.
#11 – Medals
#12 – Nearby Pokémon
This is the aspect of the game that I’m the least familiar with: this menu displays nearby Pokémon and footprints that tell you how close you are to them. I’m not sure how many meters each footprint represents or how tracking a Pokémon actually affects your search for them.
If you have any info on this part of the game, please leave a comment so I can add the information to this post. I’ll make sure to give you credit.
#13 – Menu
You can select sub-menus from here. There’s some pretty lackluster tips offered in the top right corner, as well as your settings.
#14 – Captured Pokémons
This is relatively self-explanitory: you can see your captured Pokémon displayed here. By clicking the icon in the bottom right hand corner, you can sort them alphabetically, by number, combat power, etc.
#15 – Details
By clicking on one of your Pokémon, you’re able to see more detailed information about them. You can check their combat power, health, attacks, where they were caught, and see the transfer button that lets you exchange them for candies.
