Preview the gym's lineup and arrange yours accordingly. Research the different types. Water > Fire, Fire > Grass, Water > Rock, Electric > Water, etc etc etc.



Also, a single tap uses their first move.
Swipe your pokemon left/right to dodge the opponent's attack if you can.
There's a blue bar by your pokemon's status bar, once it fills up, long-press the screen to use your pokemon's special move.

I downloaded it to see what the fuss was all about, and I really just don't get it. Glad it's getting people out and about, but it's not for me.

Are people seriously happy that the way to get kids out and about is by having them chase around a video game?

And by the way, walking is NOT exercise--it's an activity of daily living. We shouldn't be happy that ten year olds are walking a mile or two to catch an effing pokemon; we should be disgusted out ourselves.

Calm down. Step away from the ledge.


Also, walking is definitely exercise, according to science.

Emery does not simply step away from the ledge, he is always over it in his posts.

Also walking burns around 2x the calories depending on how fast you are going ,as much as siting at the same time. This is between 2-3 MPH, so nothing really exhilarating. So would you rather sit for 8 hours to burn 1500 Calories, or walk for 4 and burn 1500 calories. You can also run, keep the app on and have a ear bud in your ear to alert you when a Pokemon appears. So you burn even more calories, heck you can be at the gym, pump iron with an incense on your character to attract Pokemon, and in between sets catch Pokemon. This app is geared to get people moving, and I think it has achieved that, this is people who would most likely be inside playing video games, while sitting.

Great post, a lot of people don't realize how much the app can do and how it can tell what activities you are in. You can't just drive around town to the nearest park and get as many pokemon as you would if you just walked to the nearest park.

I'm choosing to believe you're trolling, but it's okay. By the way, if a person doesn't usually walk a mile in a day, then it would definitely be considered a significant increase in activity.

The alternative is to have them do nothing like they usually do. Would that be better?

I had to explain this whole thing to my non-tech wife and the only thing that made it real to her was to explain that we are in the middle of the PokeApocalypse! Kind of like the Zombie Apocalypse but with Pokemon and Nerds coming out of house for the first time in years..
But it may teach them some social skills and Darwin may take care of some as well..
