Pokémon GO – Use your radar ring to discover Pokémon

As you wander the world, your avatar has a small pulsing ring that glows around them. This ring is your personal radar in the game: It’s what determines whether you’re close enough to a PokéStop or Gym to use it, and it’s also what pulls zero-footprint Pokémon out of hiding. Once you’ve tracked a Pokémon to zero steps, that means it’s in your immediate vicinity: If you stand still for a few moments, your radar field should bring it out of hiding.

So no, you don’t have to try and jump your neighbor’s fence or run through graveyards to find wandering Pokémon — your radar should reveal them without any extra work on your part.
