If you’re brand new and have never played Pokémon Go before, getting started is easy. All you have to do is create an account. You can use a Pokémon account or you can sign in with a Google Account. If you don’t want to share your primary Google Account — including your Gmail, Google Docs, and more — with Pokémon Go, you can make a secondary account exclusively to use with the game.
