    Cool Pokemon Go! Are you playing it?

    Alright peeps, are u playing the game that’s sweeping the nation? Who’s getting out there in the real world and catching all the cute Pokemon’s?

    I didn’t have much to do as the work day was winding down last Friday so I downloaded the game to see what all the buzz was about.

    And look! Right away I find a Squirtle on my desk!


    And 2 more Pokemon!
    Lol how many are hiding in my desk.


    Leaving work, I find Magikarp. I reached level 3 after this. Lol I’ve only been playing like 30minutes.



    I went Pokemon hunting during my morning run yesterday. Look Magikarp again!


    I ran to this checkpoint on a lil island:


    Another checkpoint. I was just at the check point on that lil island:


    Found a gym and tried to get in it but I guess I’m not level 5 yet so I can’t. I wasted time here and lost out on that Psyduck. It was gone by the time I gave up on trying to access the gym.


    This mushroom crab thing was hard to catch. I think it took my 4 throws.
    (Yeah, my aim is bad lol. Whatever.)


    This was the second Poliwag I caught on my run and my phone immediately died after this. My phone had 46minutes on a 41% charge.


    At some point after this I charged my phone, caught more Pokemons including my first Eevee (so cute!) and reached Level 5 and joined the Red Team - Valor, took a nap, had lunch and went out again to catch some more lol.

    I found this flower Pokemon outside of another gym (a temple IRL).

    The gym was controlled by the yellow team – Instinct.

    I don’t’ even know what I’m doing in battle.



    I died, lost or whatever. Lmao ZERO points.



    Here’s one of the Eevee’s I caught. They’re like baby fox Pokemon’s. I caught 4 so far!!



    Here’s my album of pix - http://imgur.com/a/uDr1u that’s not all of my Pokemon’s tho. Imma update this thread and album with more pix as I catch some more.

    Add your pix and stories. Go!

    Someone is going to get killed playing that game if they haven't already. It appears to be very addictive. I honestly don't get it. I catch real animals. I already had to ban that game in my house and my car.

    Re: Pokemon Go! Are you playing it?

    I've got it but haven't got super intrigued in playing it taking care of the wife fresh off surgery, work, and the animals and yard work takes most of my time but the premise of getting kids out of the house and not glued to a tv and getting a little exercise is something I highly promote.

    I have been playing the game a lot. I grew up playing it on the gameboy and nintendo and i really like the concept. I think the game is great socially, I have met a few people on my team and I have gone grinding with a bunch of friends to gain levels. I also really like the motivation for walking and exercising it has for people. As a computer engineer i sit at my desk all day so it is nice to get up and walk around capping gyms and pokemon. As a computer engineer i also cringe super hard at their release and the amount of game ending bugs they put it out with (see 1hp gym bug, servers, logging out bug, sound bug, etc.). I also wonder how they will handle things like the learning curve and gyms for new players when people start to have insanely leveled pokemon (around me there are gyms with power level 1200 pokemon and many of my less hardcore friends only have power level 300-400). It will be interesting to see how it develops but for now its been interesting and very fun when it works

    an example on how much it gets people moving is that my friends and i got 13,000-15,000 steps on sunday because we spent a ton of time playing. This is not including our normal steps for the day on top of that

    Re: Pokemon Go! Are you playing it?

    I was actually a beta tester for the game. You will not believe how crazy evolving was then lol. 314 candies to evolve pidgeotto and you only got one a catch. It's not nearly as good as I'd hoped and they replaced the number of meters a pokemon is from you with those little footsteps, which I find inconvenient. And they don't seem to actually have taken much input from beta testers even though they did ask for suggestions, they could have at least given some indicator of a direction. But overall its not too bad, my boyfriend loves it.
    Now, I'm a pretty extreme introvert, I actually may have social anxiety, so I don't really like it too much anymore. I like having walk arounds but I can't really deal with people coming up to me and talking about it or shouting out to me about it. I really preferred when it was in beta and only like three people nearby had it and no one really talked about it. The whole social aspect is kinda ruining it for me.

    just set parameters for kids, where and when it's appropriate to play. combine that with some supervision when out in public and reinforce safety rules like look both ways before crossing the street, don't talk to strangers, etc. and it will be fine and fun.

    (on a separate note, a teen girl in Wisconsin did find a body while playing the game and hunting Pokemon along a river but that was unrelated to the game.)

    basically the game uses a map and GSP. u search for and catch Pokemon's around u. it encourages peeps to go outside, explore and look for them. u might find Pokemon at the park, the store, downtown, etc. u might meet other peeps along the way. when u are near or discover a Pokemon, u tap in on the map and u see Pokemon imposed on the landscape on your phone. throw balls to catch'em. there are stops along the way (i.e landmarks) to resupply and gyms (more landmarks or prominent buildings) to train your Pokemon and battle other teams. it's really cool and fun.

    yep, go outside kids. it's summer and full of Pokemon's.

    just play at your own pace. u don't even have to battle and get your butt kicked like me. u can just have fun collecting. the game encourages peeps to go outside, but u don't have to for the purpose of playing. play when u are on a run, walking the dog, grocery shopping, before u meet up with friends and u don't want them to know that u collect virtual Pokemon's.

    it is buggy. OMG i open the game last night before bed to admire all the Pokemon i caught and my inventory was empty.



    i was SOOO MAD!! but i closed the game and went back on 5 minutes later and everything was cool.

    awww. maybe u can play super early in the morning or really late at night or very deep in the woods or something. or have your BF be a buffer between your Pokemon catching and other players.
