I got a 43 y/o at work to start playing with me.
He just texted to say he joined the red team to be in my gyms.

Pretty damn cool.


The closest poke center is the dilapidated old truck outside of the bar down the road.

It uses the game engine from the game Ingress.
It also uses all or some of their "special places of interest" in pokemon

The wife showed that game to my kids yesterday.  While visiting The Alamo this morning, I had to get them to turn it off.  Kind of dissapointed it would have spots around there, but without knowing the engine specifics no point in worrying about it.

Downloading it now.



I've played all the Pokemon games except the last 3 or so, the new Pokemon have been pretty lame.



Thinking about getting the new one

The wife downloaded the game and it looked fun so I grabbed it.  I'm 40 and still have a soft spot for Pokemon...  Waaaaay back in the late 90s, when I got out of the Army the first time, I worked overnights.  I'd stop by the store on the way home, grab a 40 or two of Mickey's and unwind by watching Pokemon, Histeria! and Queen Latifah's talk show before bed.

Still loved the looks the daywalkers gave me when I was buying malt liquor and a hotdog at 0800...

I noticed that driving around the loading icon was always going.

I think the travel is too fast and that's why walking or biking is better.

I noticed the same.  Over about 20 MPH it's constantly refreshing and very few if any Pokemon will spawn.

My boys are playing it. Took them to Stone Mountian park yesterday and they were wandering around "catching" stuff.

No clue how or what it is. But they seem to enjoy it.

I have a young guy who works for me that I took onto the Air Force Base today and he was fucking around with that shit while we were driving.

All the sudden he screams, "STOP!!!"

I'm like, WTF?!?

He jumps out of the truck and goes running to a spot near billeting (They have a metal moose outside that he ran up to) then he yelled, "Fuck yeah!"

He told me that it is a spot where you can get a unique item or animal or some shit. Never was interested in it, but it's ironic that the only place to get your very own unique thingy is on a military base.

When he got back in the truck I about fucking choked that idiot out.

Probably too new for a lot of the crowd, but a Yu Gi Oh game like this would be awesome. Wear the VR and play like how they duel on the show with a duel disc.

I remember taking my Gameboy to school and hooking up to classmates Gameboys with a cable so we could fight and possibly steal Pokemon's from each other. I remember an epic fist fight when a Charizard got captured during a lunchtime battle.

The game uses landmarks and the like as locations for "gyms" where you "battle" pokemon that other people leave there as well as caches for free supplies. There's like 10 on the VA I work at.

I just got it yesterday. I loved the games as a kid and rediscovered them a few months ago. This thing is pretty cool, a neat idea to bring the games into the modern era.

Saw a post that said something along the lines of, "When it comes to getting people to go outside, what took Michelle Obama 8 years took Pokemon one day."

I've been playing quite a bit, at level 8 and have hatched a couple of eggs. I live in a historical town and a lot of markers are PokeStops so if I walk around the square they reset by the time I get back to each one.

I had not played Pokemon since Gold/Silver but Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire renewed my interest. I honestly thought Pokemon GO would be stupid as fuck but I'm liking it quite well.

I was a huge Pokemon fan as a kid but can't get into this. I still think it's really cool, though.

I have been seeing a LOT more people and kids out walking around with their phones out. Go walk around a mall or landmarks in your area and you will see them. People like the stuff they did when they were kids, and Pokemon has been very popular since it was introduced in the mid 90s. That's a big potential fan base.

Daughter wasn't going down last night, so I took her for a drive in the country.

Might have pulled over and snagged a few, including an Exeggcute.

Fun.

Also, only the original 151 Pokemon are canon
