Scroll up? I think I covered the most basic basics.
1. Walk around with your phone out and the game on.
2. Random encounters give you opportunity to catch pokémon in an augmented-reality mode using your camera and gyroscope!
3. Visit persistent "pokéstop" landmarks to get loot (more pokéballs and items to lure pokémon).
4. Visit other persistent "gym" landmarks that let players compete for temporary control. Controlling a gym for ~21 hours gives you in-game currency that you otherwise have to pay real moneys for.
GOTTA CATCH EM ALL
