Pokemon Go!!

Postby Ashlene » Sat Jul 09, 2016 8:29 pm

Ok guys, who else is completely obsessed with this glorious game. Yes, it is buggy and has poor servers right now. Give it time to have more updates and I think it will be great. I just went with my husband down to a local park and lake and spent all afternoon playing. We bumped into so many other people playing, as well, which was super funny to see. All I can say is where were all of these Pokemon fans before?? It has been so much fun and is quite addicting. I was in the hospital all week and managed to catch a bunch of pokemon from my bed. Definitely helped lift my spirits. :pika

Me, and probably all gamers over 25. :)

Indoors, playing on Game Boys and DSs! It was a really long, drawn out conspiracy...I will illustrate:

I went walking yesterday and today, really enjoying this game! I'm trying to hatch eggs, spotty GPS is the ban of my life at the moment.

My sister alerted me of a meme going around, that Nintendo accomplished in 24 hours what Michelle Obama tried to accomplish in 8 years: getting kids outside. The terrifying fact is how true it is xD I think it's fantastic that they've only got it using the original generation, so a lot of the first Pokemon players won't feel left out. Though I've been a Pokemon fan for all the generations, I'm super pumped to see fans of the original getting back into it.

As for the game itself, I'm in love. I get to catch Pokemon while gassing up the car, and I can catch some while waiting the last couple minutes before I can clock in for work. A number of the server glitches seem to have cleared up for me, although my sister couldn't log in when we tried to walk up to church to hit the pokestop/gyms there.

I've been enjoying playing at lunch times. Catch is the GPS location cannot deal with movement so I can walk for eggs OR hunt pokemon :pika I'm not sure why its so bad - google can tell me what room I'm in while Pokemon guesses a different city block every 3 seconds unless I'm in the same centre of the city location without moving for at least half an hour. then it just jumps around the same city block :P

Its a game with amazing promise sabotaged by server issues and lack of stable GPS processing.

@BMH - Your graphic actually brought tears to my eyes I giggled so much. An excellent summary.

I'm So Glad That It's Now Here!!!!
It's so much fun! In my town we have made a facebook group for it and we plan events where people drop lures. For example on Sunday night there was about 150 people hanging out in the field beside the museum, since there are 3 pokestops right around it so you can hit all three in the field.

I hope you are all having positive experiences as well :grin:
