    I just downloaded the game today (July 18th, 2018) and I have a problem.

    After catching my starter Pokemon, I was thrown into the wide world of the game by professor Willow. In the bottom right corner of my phone, I can see that there are 3 Pokemon "nearby."
    This is where my trouble is. I have walked all the way around my 3 acre property twice and never seen anything on the map except my little avatar walking around. There are no Pokemon! What does the game consider "nearby?" After walking around aimlessly all over my property for about half an hour I realized there must be more to it than just wandering around hoping a Pokemon pops onto the screen.
    Does it actually mean within a mile or so, do I need to get in my car and drive to play this game? There are no footprints on my "nearby" pokemon. Only grass behind the shaded silhouettes of them. And when I tap them it only says "Find these pokemon in the wild!"
    Hoping someone can help me. Thanks!
