    Default Pokemon Go

    Well, it's here lol.

    Has anyone downloaded this and started playing yet?

    I have my reservations with this game as if people aren't already glued to their phones enough but it looks kinda entertaining-ish...

    meh. I hit level 5 on it tonight, but it is kinda lame so far.

    Its kinda funny though, you can totally tell who else is playing it and hitting up the same locations, and everyone just greets each other with a smirk and a nod....It's really uncomfortable. You don't usually see the real person that you kill, just their COD avatar...

    I get more of the server issues screen than actual gameplay...

    Only at level 3 and my battery is draining at like 1%/minute.

    Yeah I jumped on. My buddy has everything he needs in the same block as his office, I have nothing nearby. Where are some of the more active parts to go?

    And I'm eager to see some of the more hilarious (and not tragic) incidents arising from people wandering around trying to ketch the pokemans.

    If you like Pokemon go it's based off a game called ingress that you can also check out.

    Started playing last night. Tons of fun, I went along the river and explored a bunch of chinatown I'd never been through before. Really neat how alot of the pokestops are landmarks. As weird as it sounds, in a scenic place (like princess island) it would actually make a good date app. It basically gives markers to walk between so you could just walk & chat aimlessly and see cool things.

    So far Level 7, the servers are definitely overloaded but its already better this morning versus yesterday.

    Some tips i learned:
    Battery pack - Almost a must if you're gonna play a while. GPS + Screen on demolishes batteries

    Throwing pokeballs, the smaller the green circle the higher the bonus but only if you throw it through the circle (i.e. harder to do but higher xp reward)

    Battling, fuck I wish it was turn based

    Gyms & Team you get to choose at level 5. YELLOW FTW

    Leveling up pokemon, better to start with a higher CP one than a lower one, but they appear to have the same max (you'll just spend more items on a lower CP to get it to an equivalent max). Doesn't appear to make any difference in cost or max CP whether you level then evolve, or evolve then level. Both hit similar caps that is based on your player level.

    There's no poke-centres, need to use potions/revives after battle so be leary about wasting time on a gym thats too strong. Also if your team controls a gym you can A) insert a pokemon to help defend it and B) train against a pokemon inside the gym for XP (though you need to heal after battles so # of potions limits this).

    It's not released in Canada yet. For android you need to sideload it, for IOS you can make a US apple account and sign in with that and download it.

    That being said like any big online release, the servers took a huge shit today and can't get on to play so maybe its best to wait a bit anyways. Buggy AF when the servers are overloaded.

    Mini update though: Claimed 4 gyms and hoping they hold until I can claim some coins.

    Sounds like a lot of this overlaps with Ingress (also made by Niantic) as there has been a large increase in new Ingress players this week. A lot of portals in Ingress are gyms in Pokemon Go, but it's easier to use Ingress to find them from what I can gather in some chats.

    Is that a bad thing? I've gone up to lots of random people and just said, hey are you also playing Pokemon? And started chatting. Met a cute girl named Sky on the peace bridge and then a couple from Australia that were road tripping across North America, and a bunch of others today.

    It's a great game for getting out and getting some exercise and meeting new people. Once it gets properly released in Canada I'm thinking about posting a meetup online, dropping a few lure modules and maybe bring freezies or something.

    Hit level 10 walking back from the (real) gym. Have half a dozen cp400's but nothing stronger yet. Servers were fucked during the day so didn't play much at lunch. Trying to score a bunch more nidaran for the second evolution but having issues

    Pokemon is made by Niantic who made Ingress.
    PokeStops and Gyms are portals that were created from Ingress.

    Servers are taking a massive hit due to the side loads and other means to play the game in non allowed countries.

    Other than that its a pretty shallow game with not a whole lot to offer at this minute... Lots of hype... But its a big let down.

    And yes.. if you plan to play for any lengths of time you are going to need a battery pack.
