Pretty cool idea. Would probably work better with bookers, though.

An Augmented Reality Pokémon game, where you go out into the world to catch Pokémon using your phone. It's considered to be the best way to  get a Pokémon fan to go outside, actually.

When the day comes that I can use superpowered animals as personal mafia drones to one-man goldfarm millions from the hands of eager children, then I'll be excited. Until then, the prospect of paying in order to wait an hour to look for shitty pokemon that may or may not actually be in reach or even in walking range for the sake of possibly battling the two other people in town who're actually into this shit does not interest me.

So then it'll be full of ads and shit encouraging you to pay forever while you wait hours instead? Still really not my idea of a good time. I can get a Pokemon game that people around me actually play for free too.

I have basic info. I've seen the game. You can make in-app purchases of smelly jelly, which I can only imagine Farks over people with less money, but I've never seen it used with other players within 3 square miles. And you can also purchase more balls, which allow you to keep playing the game, basically, because there's nothing else to do but catch shit when no one else plays.

Apparently, this is how it works, from my experience.
>Friend comes over, says PG is awesome.
>Spend an eternity waiting for connection with GPS.
>Play MTG.
>Finally starts, his phone needs to be recharged.
>Charge phone, continue doing other things.
>Walk outside. Follow vague non-directions because pokemon are supposedly in the area.
>Walk for an hour throughout massive rural landscape.
>Apparently Pidgey, my least favorite pokemon in all of ever, spawns in a corner of my yard once every 3 hours. Zubat, my other least favorite pokemon, lives in my neighbor's woods somewhere. Next time I go that way, I'll have to bring a flamethrower. Obnoxious bastards.
>Another hour. The only creature that was remotely interesting was a purple dildo snake.
>Spend another hour walking to town, because, my friend assures me, town is where all the Pokemons go!... Because Pokemon are the opposite of real animals, apparently!
>We are greeted by a long list of repettitive D-Listers in alleyways and streetcorners, not unlike town in real life.
>Friend has to go home now. It was an afternoon poorly wasted.

But, I guess, if you live in a city, or a settlement of reasonable bigness, shit will show up in your house, judging from the amount of "Wait a tick, this isn't right..." vibes I've been getting from my friend. The number of pokemon per acre drops to ridiculous levels whenever there's free acres to run around in, and I could have infinitely more success playing inside pokemon, and actually playing a game, rather than walking around in public poking this embarrassing app. (And it is embarrassing, when you're the only ones doing it. I pity the fools in small towns who do this shit.) So, in my case, and probably the case of hundreds of other people, there's no point in having the game. The only thing you can do is incredibly slow, un-rewarding, and boring without money enhancements, and there's nothing you can do with these pokemon unless you go out, move to some building or other, and then challenge a bunch of people who've been at it longer than you to a battle. Not even directly, you just throw critters at the building, and any critters they've stuck to it will fight back, supposedly. How wonderful that the only gyms available are miles away. Woo hoo.

Charmander here! Also, my house has a rat infestation, so i've got three ratata and a weedle so far.

I'm getting a data plan tomorrow so I can go hunting. I'm surrounded by pokestops, including a mosque right outside my house that, in the 10 years i've lived in this house, I have not visited once.

There is a bunch of stuff right by my house I can walk to in under 200 steps :) living opposite a park helps lol

My gps is having a hard time singing right now as it starts on my wifi, wifi extends right across to a few feet into the park (I don't mess around with Internet stuff, I have a good wireless router) but once it looses that and switches over to phone signal it twitches me back to my house. Gonna try with wireless turned off tomorrow as I (currently) have an actual day off!

Hokay, so two things, lures are awesome, put one down int my house and caught a cp 40 snorlax, 28 catterpie and a freezing pigiotto. To compare I only had my starter at cp12 and one xp 10 pidgi before that. (Also got a few others but not high lvl or evolved)

Second issue, I might need a new phone. It cannot track gps signal... Seriously I'm on a freezing plateau 2000 feet above sea level and was in a park with nothing higher than me for 500metres in any direction and it couldn't find a satellite for 5 mins, even then just 1 and I gave up. It is a,so CONSTANTLY searching for them and failing so battery drains almost visibly.

Tried clearing stuff, resetting gps settings etc. but nothing works. Luckily my contract can upgrade me but I was gonna change contract hmmmm.

I captured enough rats to evolve two raticates! I have two 200 CP Evees I'll eventually evolve! I caught an Abra! A Tauros! A Magikarp (it takes 500 Magikarp candies to evolve a Gyarados D:), I caught a pidgeotto and one more pidgey will give me enough to evolve it into a pidgeot!

I also caught a ton of spearrows, enough weedlec for a beedrill, I almost have a butterfree, caught a venonat in a mosque, caught a squirtle and got a second squirtle from an egg, caught a parapas from a different egg, a few nidoran and nidorano, and a single oddish.

Wait, are there no items in the game? Like, do you have to buy (at a pokestop) one of the items needed to evolve Eevee? (Because, as my memory serves, I'm pretty sure you need an item to evolve a few evolutions of her/him.)

My gps also doesn't works but it is seemingly my phone not Pokemon go that is the issue as my God is currently not working on anything else either. Gonna get a new phone...

On a better note though, we had to run to the shops to grab a few missing ingredients for home made pizza and my wife jumped in the driver seat. My phone isn't working on the go so I grab hers. On the way there I catch her 7 more Pokemon. That is literally 1 per min. of driving!
