Pay Attention to the Pokemon Event

You will be happy to know that a brand new event is live in Pokemon Go. In this event, you'll get the chance to catch this sleeping Snorlax. Also, if you are successful in catching this lazy Pokemon during this special event, then you'll get a very special exclusive move "Yawn". At the 2019 Pokemon Press conference, this latest mobile game known as Pokemon Sleep was announced.

Now, let's see how you shall encounter the sleeping Snorlax. First of all, you will be required to find a Poke Flute. For obtaining the flute, you need to move to the Pokemon Tower, then after reaching the top of this tower, you'll encounter "Team Rocket", after fighting with it and winning the battle, Mr Fuji will provide you with the Poke Flute. With the help of this Poke Flute, you can conveniently catch Snorlax.

You have to wake up the Snorlax (note that you'll encounter Snorlax blocking your passage).

In pursuit of obtaining Snorlax, you will be required to visit different locations. It might not be possible for you to go to these places, especially during the night time or the weather may not be suitable for you to go outside.

In such situations, Dr. Fone is a very helpful virtual location software. Also, Dr Fone offers a location spoofing feature. Simulating a movement along a route is made possible with the help of the location spoofing feature. You can also make use of a Joystick for flexible GPS controls.

Since Pokemon Go is a location-based app, you will find this software really effective.

With the help of this software, you can teleport to any location in the whole world.

The first step involves downloading Dr Fone Virtual Location. When you have completed the installation process, you need to launch the program.
