Someone calculated the exact distance of the footprints in Pokémon Go’s Nearby menu

Within Pokemon Go, there is a nearby menu that shows you which Pokemon are closest to you. There are three different footprints shown, and depending upon on how many you see, gives you a general idea of how close they are.

Well, someone created a YouTube video that goes more in depth as to the distance of each footprint, and came up with the following:

- 1 footprint = 40m (130ft)
- 2 footprints = 60m (200ft)
- 3 footprints = 90m+ (300ft+)
