Default Pokemon Go

Anyone playing this?

I downloaded it and have played it a bit. Something completely different from any other game I have played. Merging the real and virtual worlds. Not sure if this has been done before. But looks like Pokemania is about to take off again.

Time will tell if this is a solid game or just a fad. I have enjoyed it but I don't think I have the time to devote to play it often to get any good at it.

Default Re: Pokemon Go

I'm usually very open minded when it comes to technology, but I've been wondering if I should expect random people to roam through my back yard. That's not a thing, is it? Like, is that happening or does the game know better than that? If it is, I'm seriously not okay with people hunting Pokemon on my property.

I also would have never thought in a million years that I'd type the above sentence and mean it without a hint of humor.

I download it and I love it. Granted I spent my entire childhood playing it so that helps, but I think the whole concept is great. I've never seen so many kids walking around outside. I live downtown, which is great because there are a tons of pokestops and gyms around. I think this game is the best thing since sliced bread.

Nah, kids only need to get within a certain distance from the pokemon to catch it, not be right on top of it. So they'll be able to catch it from the sidewalk or street outside your house. Hell, I play it in the car.

As long as I don't have anyone on my property, I'm good, and the game is fine by me. I just don't want to have to post a bunch of trespassing signs with Poke balls with Xs drawn over them. I was a little concerned when I heard about people roaming all over the place hunting for them. It is a cool idea, but my property is about the most "grumpy old man" aspect of my character. Other than that, have at it, folks. Glad to know they don't have be in my yard to get them.

its fun. My girlfriend has been explaining it and she seems to be having fun playing it. Had to drive her to a "lure module" last night and other nerds were there. This was around 10:30 last night.

But yeah, it's going to explode.

Definitely hooked on it. Was obsessed with Pokemon for a decent part of my childhood. App is very good for fitness and exercise. Ran/walked over 15 miles this past weekend. Also met some folks playing it as well.

Westboro fires back as only they can (and by that I mean in an offensive, horrifying manner), calling Clefairy a "sodomite" and posting this:


I wonder if that's grounds for Nintendo to sue the pants off that awful "church" (copyright infringement)?

It's ok, not something I would play for a long time though. At least it gets the kids outside for once, just hope they don't walk out in traffic and get hit by a car.

Same. Servers have been atrocious since it released, but it was better today... so maybe Niantic has done some major upgrading. I don't mind the level system for the player, but the evolution system can suck a big one. I mean, yeah, it's good there's so much work so you don't gain new pokemon so easily. However... I'm going to have to catch 101 Magikarp and trade off 100 if I want a Gyrados, unless I somehow hatch one from one of the eggs I'll get. That's a bit ridiculous. I am looking forward to trading once it's brought into the mix, and mainly just seeing how it's implemented.

Yes, it's probably immature, and yes it cements you to your phone/tablet for hours on end. But... I'm outside walking around and exploring different places around here while I'm looking for different pokemon. That beats the hell out of sitting on my ass all day watching netflix or staring at facebook. And as far as immaturity, it's a nostalgia factor, of course it's gonna be popular. And EVERYBODY has their time-killing vice, no matter WHAT it is. This might be a bit nerdy, but it's legal, and it has many more positives than negatives.
