It released last night and the servers are taking a bigger dump than a game on the PC. If you've downloaded and managed to get in, how many Pokemans have you caught? Moreso, how many times have you walked out into oncoming traffic to catch a Bulbasaur?

This game seems like a ripoff. And yes, it will be hilarious when someone gets run over trying to catch a Charizard in the middle of the street.

Although I wonder if I have a Zubat in my toilet or an Alakazam in my closet...

PIKACHU, MEET THE THE REAL WORLD.

Nintendo is developing a companion smartwatch device called Pokémon Go Plus, designed to help you take part in the Pokémon world without having to stare at your phone all day. (http://t.umblr.com/redirect?z=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.theverge.com%2F2015%2F 9%2F10%2F9300101%2Fpokemon-go-nintendo-mobile-games%3Futm_medium%3Dsocial%26utm_source%3Dtumblr% 26utm_campaign%3Dtheverge&t=YjI1YTdmYjU5MmI0MmY3YTNiYjAyMjM5YzJjNzlmMDQ0NzNm NmI0Yyx1VnczQnJabQ%3D%3D)The Pokéball-shaped device will vibrate and light up when you get near to a Pokémon in your daily environment.
Tsunekazu Ishihara, the CEO of The Pokémon Company, says that he had been working on Pokémon Go with late Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata for around two years.

That's because its developed by the same company. Nintendo partnered with them because of Ingress' success.

The game and servers crashed a lot in the beginning when I started playing it earlier this week. Although it's been much better today. I've mostly caught Rattata's and Pidgey's, but did manage to catch a few gems like two Eevee's, a Nidoqueen, and a Gastly. :tgrin:

I ended up joining Team Mystic. What teams did you all join?

I have it, but unfortunately, it doesn't work here since the game system hasn't been fully set up here in Japan yet. I'm curious what the deal is with the game, which is why I decided to download it.

The only Pokemon I do have is the starter. If I use the app, there are no Pokestops or Pokemon anyplace. Just a wide open map.

I had no interest in this game until I read more about the app this game is based on ingress and that one seemed far more interesting to me. I had no plans to download the game to even check it out until I saw how this thing exploded all over. Not only is it all over the mainstream outlets just like Pokemon was in 1999 but I also had School friends who never admitted into liking Pokemon back when we were kids tweeting about catching a flippin' geodude.

I never expected it to be this huge and I finally downloaded the game to see what I'm missing out on.

Since she can't have her phone turned on during exams, she's letting me have it during the day so I can go catch Pokemon. Me and my brother are going to go to the lake tomorrow to check things out.

I wonder if all these casuals will continue playing once they start adding Johto, Hoenn, etc. pokemon to the game. It seems these are the type of people who only know or like the original 151 pokemon.

Once they start adding new pokemon that went beyond their childhood nostalgia stage they'll probably drop the app. As expected of casuals, they're only playing because its something they remember as kids, once it goes on past that the casuals will move on just like they did when the new gens of the games came out.

Its basically a walking app where you see pokemon and try to capture it.

The actual games on Gameboy and DS are turn-based RPG's with actual strategy involved. Its Nintendo's second best selling franchise after Mario.

I might be into Pokémon Go, if they had a trainer battle system in stand of fighting just in the gym.

It would be like if Pokémon go, if I can challenge other people. What's Pokémon with out a old fashion Pokémon battle? 2 people just walking on the street meet, and than face each other.

Oh yeah, Pokémon is the 2nd biggest franchise of all time, right after Mario of course. Nintendo just happens to own both copy writes.

Any basic tips for getting high level pokemon would be appreciated :ohwell:

Best way to get higher CP Pokemon is to be a higher level trainer. Fastest way to do that is catch a bunch of the common Pokemon (pidgey, Rattata, weedle), use a lucky egg (if you have one), and then evolve them all to their next evolution. Each evolution gives you 500 XP, or 1000 if you used the lucky egg.
Used this trick a few weeks ago, and flew from like level 10 to level 12 in the 30 minute period of using the lucky egg.

Once you're higher, the evolutions can go higher and you're more likely to find higher level first evolutions. For example, I find eevees that are around 500-600 cp all the time, and evolving an Eevee with 600 cp into a Jolteon will basically give you 1000+ Jolteon, even though it's the weakest of the 3 eeveelutions


Loving this game. Now that I'm level 21, in starting to see and get a lot of better Pokemon. Have plenty of 1000+ mons, and a few of them are pretty awesome (Charizard, Ninetales, Nidoking/Queen, Dewgong, Dragonair, Snorlax, Electabuzz, and Magmar, to name just a few)

However, I really do hope that they include trading and battling soon, so it's more interactive with those around you than just fighting gyms

I gave up on this **** pretty quick. It rewards people who do nothing but play the game. I didn't find time to play much for a few days and suddenly I was a dozen levels behind everyone in my area and without the ability to battle gyms there's pretty much nothing else to do. The novelty of just catching Pokemon has worn off. If I'm honest, even if the playing field was level I find everything outside of catching Pokemon awful, so I probably would have quit sooner or later anyways.

Now I'm just playing proper Pokemon instead.

Pokemon Go Updated!

Niantic Is Testing A New 'Nearby' System For Pokémon Go [UPDATES]


http://kotaku.com/niantic-is-testing-a-new-nearby-system-for-pokemon-go-1785001335
http://www.themarysue.com/pokemon-go-update-tracking-test/

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/pokemon-go-updated-with-these-changes-new-sighting/1100-6442450/

The biggest and most interesting change has to be the new Nearby system, which is now named ‘Sightings:”

UPDATE 11:56PM: Actually, this image from neoGAFFer Toki767 seems to be the real new Nearby system. It actually shows you a picture of the Pokestop where you can find a creature! Very useful.

And here it is in action [click here]. It tells you where to go!

For most players who don’t have the new Nearby system, ‘Sightings’ only highlights Pokémon in the immediate general area, rather than teasing you with critters that aren’t actually nearby at all (previously, these monsters were marked as three footprints away). Also, now there’s grass. Yay?
This new system showcases fewer monsters than before, though as commenter Professor Dog pointed out to me, it does get rid of duplicate creatures. That’s a plus. Reports online also indicate that this new system update its monster list more often than the older one, which is good. It means that, while you will have to do some wandering to capture something specific, hypothetically you aren’t flying blind for as long as before.

Despite some improvements, I’m in disbelief that they’ve kept the system this vague considering that nobody could figure out the previous one. But hey, this isn’t permanent. It sounds like Niantic is still fiddling with finding a new system to replace the old ‘Nearby’ one, and that eventually they’ll settle on something better. In the meantime, this test will give them lots of feedback to work with.

Also fixed: battery saver is back, and the game is now awarding the appropriate amount of XP. Hooray!

Pokemon Go Facing Class-Action Lawsuit (http://www.gamespot.com/articles/pokemon-go-facing-class-action-lawsuit/1100-6442673/)

Irritated by how Pokemon Go draws people to a park near their home, a metro Detroit couple has filed a class-action lawsuit against the creators of the massively popular mobile game.

The Detroit Free Press reports that the couple, Scott and Jayme Dodich of St. Clair Shores, sued developer Niantic, Nintendo, as well as partners The Pokemon Company in California federal court.

The Dodiches are suing to try to stop Niantic from putting Pokemon on or near private properties, unless they have an owner's blessing. Additionally, the lawsuit asks that a share of Pokemon Go's revenue be given to residents whose properties are claimed to have fueled the game's wild popularity.

In the lawsuit, it's stated that Pokemon Go had reached 30 million downloads and brought in more than $35 million. The actual numbers may be higher, however, as Niantic told the Los Angeles Times this month that the game has been downloaded close to 100 million times. Though official revenue figures have not been shared, a report claimed Pokemon Go brought in $200 million in its first month.

The Dodiches explain in the lawsuit that they are fed up with Pokemon Go players walking on their lawn, looking into their windows, and even swearing at them in some cases. They live across the street from Wahby Park, which is a Pokemon Go gym, while seven PokeStops are in the nearby area. "Hundreds" of people come by on any given day, the lawsuit says.

"Nobody gets sleep anymore," the lawsuit says. "How is this acceptable? ... They hang out on our lawns, trample landscaping, look in vehicles ... We don't feel safe ... I don't feel safe sitting on our porch."

"Defendants have shown a flagrant disregard for the foreseeable consequences of populating the real world with virtual Pokemon without seeking the permission of property owners," it goes on.

Niantic has not commented on the lawsuit as of yet. We have reached out to the company and will update this post with anything we hear back.

Pokemon Go Facing Class-Action Lawsuit (http://www.gamespot.com/articles/pokemon-go-facing-class-action-lawsuit/1100-6442673/)

Hopefully they will be counter sued for this "cash grab" I have a feeling the stories are exaggerated or even made up, but then again it is Detroit :lol:

seriously though this seems like a frivolous lawsuit. I wonder if these people are related to Ryan Lochte ???? :lol:

Hey, so uhh, I got my first phone a couple days ago and immediately download Pokemon go.

There's a glitch that I got though that I can't find anything on. It says to catch a Pokemon, so my character is standing there, then the starters pop up at my feet and are glitched through each other like some fusion that went horribly wrong.

Weird, for sure! But it looks like it's having trouble getting a GPS signal? I'd check your phone settings to try to troubleshoot that.

Don't know where you've been, but this isn't the first incident.
