Pokemon GO!

Post by Phazed » Fri Jul 15, 2016 3:35 am

Let's have another go at this, shall we?

This thread is for all things Pokemon GO.
Topics of discussion include, but are not limited to:
1. Progress pictures
2. Rare catch gloating
3. Complaining about bugs (darn you 1HP gym bug)
4. Stuff you want to see in future updates

I don't want to see any harassing (which includes all forms of personal attacks) unless it's banter between teams (btw valor sucks).
We already had our warning, so let's not throw that away :3

I'm not sure I follow the whole teams thing, it looks like people are just getting really passionate about their favourite colour being blue

NAH THERE FAVOURITE COLOUR IS RED!

I don't get why it needs teams to begin with, but hey, I haven't even played it.
It's funny how people are getting hit by cars because of this yet they still blame the traffic.

I don't even have the game, but I'm team Mystic. :D
Oddly enough, my favorite color is blue anyway.

They missed a trick with that whole team thing.
No Team Rocket?
You have a Pokemon app game that uses teams, and they failed to have a Team Rocket?!
That is some critical fail.
That should have been a given.
An open net penalty shot and they missed.

Game isn't as huge as people are saying, kinda disappointed in this. The attack / levelling / battle system feels really rigid, and gyms are pretty much impossible if you have a job or any real commitments. Nice idea though, maybe it will grow on me
:oops:

The only bugs I want them to fix are the slow loading screen and the frozen Pokeball glitch. So many high level CP Pokemon lost due to this

Don't think it's going to have a particularly long shell life, but good for the people right now i guess.

Yeah Ive had a few friends quit because they can only catch birds, rats and Weedles in towns and smaller cities. My friend lives at the Capitol and he only gets rats and birds while in the eastern states they have literally every Pokemon available which is stupid.

Well catching pidgeys isn't all too bad. I'm hoarding mines so I can pop a lucky egg and evolve all of them at once to level fast :3

That's essentially what I would've done but it would take a long time to collect them and level up since I'm at 15

I really can't stand the gym mechanics.
I'm one of the strongest players in my area in terms of level and average CP, yet I can't hold gyms for longer than a day because almost anyone can take them on it seems.
Also have a group of Mystic players taking over gyms in my area anywhere from 2-6am. It's actually really dumb.

There are almost no pokemon to collect at my house and not too many if I walk the nearby neighborhood. If I go to the city main street though, there are 10 or so pokestops in a few square blocks. I did a round over there today since i had to go to the post office anyway. There are a few gyms nearby - but I am not anywhere near the level of the folk that already control them. I've only been playing a few days and not that much.

Interestingly, there are a lot of pokemon to collect at my desk at work. I don't even need to leave my chair to collect 50 a day at whatever random times I happen to check the game. There are no pokestops anywhere near the office though so I've already run out of poke balls twice. I have determined that, with my other commitments, it is not feasible for me to play entirely free. I would constantly be out of poke balls and would miss out on lots of capture opportunities. The only thing I see myself every buying in app is balls though.

It is debatable if I should even be playing this game at all. But it is entertaining for now. Also, since I recently got a FitBit, playing has made meeting my daily walking goals and challenges with friends a bit more amusing.

This seems to be the case for me as well. Pokemon are apparently attracted to more populated areas like schools and cities in comparison to the suburbs and other urban areas.
