Key in EpicSGPokemon (POKEMON1 OR POKEMON2 OR POKEMON3) ("Location 1" OR "Location 2" OR "Location 3").
Put as many Pokémon names/locations as you like. Remember to put "OR" in between or it won't work.
For location names, monitor the Twitter feed to get a sense of it. We can't provide the boundary for them. If pokémon name or location name has space, remember to quote them "".
Find "If notifications" then tap on it
Select "Send a notification"
Leave it as is, unless you know what you're doing.
Tap on "Create Recipe". You're done. Now you wait.
If it doesn't work, delete the recipe and repeat the substeps. Do NOT email us.
You can setup as many recipes as you want and on/off them when you move around.
