Also, both the field names can also be seen in the name of this game as well. Before the start you can also specify the speed of the ball, that you have to hit repeatedly to stay in the game longer, there are two options available for this, slow and normal.

Caught Different Pokemon Creatures:

There are many ways to catch the Pokemon in this game and among them, one of my favorites is via Pokemon Nest, which is available in the field if you manage to throw the Pokeball in it a new unique Pokemon creature will appear on the screen that keeps moving from one place to other. 

So, now you have to hit that Pokemon with the same Pokeball and you capture it. This way you can catch multiple different Pokemon creatures. The other ways of capturing the Pokemon are by hitting the shark, revolving Pokemon, and other things on the field.
