Pokemon GO coming out today



  • Not sure how I feel but I have added 9 to the pokedex and caught 13. Not sure how I feel about catching 50 clefairy's to evolve it though. That seems insane

    You actually just need 50 candy to evolve it, which is a little over 13 jigglypuffs. You get 3 candy for catching one and 1 candy for transferring it to the professor.

    Right, gotcha. That is still quite a bit though. I will mess it for a while and see how it goes



  • Made the mistake of registering with a Pokemon Trainer Club account instead of Google, and apparently the servers have been down for over 24 hours. I haven't been able to play since early yesterday morning :pensive:



  • Server issues and having to do the using a new iTunes Account workaround for iOS in the UK aside. I have really enjoyed messing around with Pokémon GO today!

    I caught a bunch of Pokémon on my way into work this morning. Then on my lunch break I wandered through the streets of Soho in London catching more Pokémon, hitting up loads of PokéStops and getting my ass kicked by the ridiculously powerful Pokémon have put in the Gyms I went to. The implementation of AR is perfect and the simplicity of the catching gameplay means you can quickly move onto the next location or goal you set for yourself.

    I also really like the randomness and variety to the PokéStops. I've been to a couple that are just popular landmarks and signs. But there has been a few really weird ones, like a sculpture of a mask protruding out of the side of a building. I feel like I am taking in more of my surroundings because of it which is really cool.



  • I found it hilarious that one of the pokestops is in my work building. Why it is so funny is that someone took a photo of a statue in there, but we are under strict order not to take photos in our building (Fortune 50 Company that has a government component, though not in my particular building).

    Ran across a Dragonair today but it ran away sadly
