Interesting new game where you capture Pokemon in the "real world" using your smart device (via GPS).

Started playing today. Anyone else tried it?

Zack Fair
Its everywhere in FB -_-

Kazenji
Yeah same...i've seen it everywhere on FB

I haven't touch mainly because i can't use the App.

Zack Fair
i tried it and its kindda cool. But I wont be going out of my way to walk around town looking for pokemons.

Kazenji
Been reading people have been walking into Police Station's just to find a Pokemon, They're asking people to stop wandering inside them now

well here in Australia they have not sure about the rest of the world.

Zack Fair
Someone's bound to get shot.

Just started today. I bought some lure modules and just threw one up. There's like 30 people at the pokestop in the park behind my backyard.

Just found out about it now. (Sure, heard of it, but didn't know what it was.)

Yes, I DO live under a rock. Switched off of social media in the Livejournal/AIM days and never looked back.

Anyways, it sounds interesting. Have a feeling it'll end up a passing fad, once people get sick of actually going places instead of sitting down and playing..

Wonder if Nintendo will have a super rare Pokemon you can only get at a convention.. By traveling to Japan?

Okay so I caught a pokemon but then the pokeball just sat on my screen for minutes. Does that happen often? I had to close the app to get it going again and now I lost that pokemon and the pokeballs I used.

Doesn't happen often though

Quincy
K I won't stress it

cdtm
Tbh, the Pokestop system needs work.

The local post office, the firehouse, these are pokestops. You really want to attract hordes of people to these places, potentially interfering with legitimate business?

Something like the world war II memorial on the town green is more like it. Greens are made for people congregating.

Quincy
I get why people have been so hooked

When that happens, try counting 10-15 seconds before you close the app. In my experience, i manage to catch the poke more often than not, as it appears in my list and in the journal when i open the app again.

Zack Fair
Can't play it here in Puerto Rico.

*CRIS*

Zack Fair
Oh and Team Valor are scumbags

Me too.

This might be this generations Wii craze.

Inhuman
What's the best team to join? And whats the difference?

Quincy
Depends, Mystic is the most popular, followed by Valor, then Instinct.

cdtm
Close Pokemon are supposed to have less footprints, right?

All I ever see are three prints. Still catching them, but never seeing less footprints.

Also gets people to play with each other during a game, Which this generation of current games are lacking on consoles unless its a online game.

cdtm
Caught Psyduck!

Pretty much no reason to play now, any other capture is jumping the shark. smile

Looking at those gyms, I wonder how many people pay money to compete?

That super rare evolved pokemon is useless without a steady supply of candies to buff it up with. This is why I quit Marvel Puzzle Quest, the three-four star cards just take up space, while the single star Iron Man and Hawkeyes come in non stop..

Nemesis X
Oh boy...

I shouldn't laugh at this. Totally am, but I shouldn't.

Nintendo's stock up 50% or more.

Think they're reconsidering abandoning legacy consoles for software and mobile app? I know they've been adamantly against that in the past, but there's sticking to tradition, and thers's burying your head in the sand.

Ridley_Prime
Well if they cater to the casuals through the mobile stuff, while catering to the real gamers/fans through consoles/handhelds, then everyone wins. Just stop trying to chase a ghost (attempting to recapture the Wii's success) and they'll be fine.

cdtm
Don't really play much, but it's interesting having it running and seeing all the gym factions change overnight, or pass by the town green and see a lure running.

Lot of activity, pretty much everywhere.

Nemesis X
Suppose it should be obvious but you can find ghost pokemon at churches and cemeteries. Walked by a church yesterday and caught a Gastly.

Zack Fair
We found a Gengar in a church.

In Puerto Rico the hype, craze and race to catch them all is real. Incredibly hard not to get invested when our island has so much cultural stops and monuments. El Viejo San Juan(one of our biggest tourist attractions) is literally overloaded with Pokestops. And as a result there is an army of people playing with dozens of lures at any given time.

Its kind of great.

Then their stock dropped when people found out that Nintendo doesn't own Pokemon Go.

Jmanghan
Mystic sounds the coolest and has the coolest name, so yeah.

Ridley_Prime
I figured their stock would go back down at some point but didn't think it'd be that soon. Reason for it's kinda poetic.

Inhuman
Instinct master race reporting in

Hail Valor.
