HOLY SHIT BOYS IT'S LIVE

Walked the block for an hour, here were my results:

Reached level 3
Caught a Bulbasaur, 2 Ratatta, a Zubat and a Weedle
Found like 60 Pokeballs and 2 eggs
2 Gyms in a 5 block radius

So hyped, this was literally the first time in my life where I exercised for an hour without once thinking to myself "I wish I was back home already" LOL

Might catch some heat for this admission, but if i never liked the pokemon gameboy games as a kid and never collected the cards, will I enjoy this app/game? Im getting a minor case of FOMO but don't want to commit the time if I'll just be lost.

If you can't get into normal Pokemon I don't know how you could get into this, but I also can't figure out how someone can't dig normal Pokemon.

Do your Pokemon fight the wild Pokemon? Or do you just throw balls at the wild ones until they go in?

Do I have to keep the app open or will it work just running in the background? I've only circled my block once at 2am so far but the lack of instruction is not helpful

The Poke Stop thing is legitimately fucking nuts. Is it just integrated with Google Maps and it auto populates little landmarks and stuff like that? The fact that this might might be a beta for a world domination mapping tool for Google is freaking me out.

But anyway, I caught a ponyta, ratata, mankey, ekans, bulbasaur, and sandshrew. Game is tight.

So this isn't live in Canada yet but I downloaded the APK anyway and it still works here, albeit poorly. But yeah the maps with all the landmarks are still in place in Canada even though you cant DL the game here legally.

All of the locations and stuff were apparently ported over from a game called Ingress. They were planning on letting people add/request new ones but were so overloaded with requests they nixed that.

Downloading now.

Is it just original 150?

Will I get more water pokemon since I live near a beach?

I have so many questions, but I'm stoked.

It's not even the full 151 right now. But it only OG Pokemon.

I got a Goldeen in the middle of a busy street, so I don't know, but maybe that'll be a better place for them.


I'm going to a cemetery tonight to hopefully find a Ghastly or Haunter.

so far i just got ratas, pigis, weedles, and zbats. i got that weedle in the middle of the produce isle at whole foods though, so that was cool.

my shit has been mad buggy though. i've had to stop the app 5 times already today, and it will do this thing where it continues to work, but doesn't except any interactions from me (pressing my phone with my fingers in the app does nothing, i have to lock my phone to get out of it).

tomorrow i'll be out and about more, so i hope to find some cooler stuff.

it's done this a couple times to me, and the first time it let me keep the pokemon. however, this just happened to me last time, and the game hasn't loaded for me in like a couple hours, so i can't check to see if i got the nidoran i was catching mid crash.
