Does anyone here have this app on their phone? I downloaded it last night after hearing about it and woke up this morning to a bunch of teenagers in front of my house, all furiously swiping at their phones. Apparently my house is a fucking gym. My road is pretty busy and these kids almost got hit a few times because they were so oblivious to anything outside their phone. I had to yell at them, telling them there was another gym a couple of blocks away and to get out of in front of my house because I don't want to have dead kids in my front yard. Fucking technology, man...

Three days in and I haven't seen a single Pokémon since the first one I was given for free. I don't get this game.


I'm not a bad enough dude, but I am an edgy little shit. I'll do what I can.

I found a Pokemon in my bedroom, lol. They are all over the place where I live for some reason.

Got to catch them all.

[Edit]An update to the story says she didn't get the Pokémon that led her there due to her police interviews. Looks like she couldn't catch them all!

A lot of people on my Facebook news feed are going apeshit with this thing. All day long, pictures of Pokemon. Nobody I know has found a dead body yet though, that would be cool.


Shake it, Quake it, Space Kaboom.

I watched some YouTube videos to see what this was all about. Yeah, someone is gonna die from doing this.

There was a couple outside my house earlier today having a heated argument over purchasing Pokeballs to catch the Pokemon in my neighborhood. Dude called his GF a bitch and got slapped. It was pretty damn funny.

I'm waiting for it to die out in hopes that Digimon will find resurgence in popularity and we'll get Digimon Go.

My power went out earlier today so I decided to take the hint and go down to the Virginia Beach Oceanfront and Pokémon. Ha ha ha destroy me now please.

Anyway which team is going to have a mass murder dedicated to them first?

In my area, probably yellow. They seem to do nothing but drive around to all the gyms and harass people. I have seen some very heated arguments. I'm just trying to get powerful enough Pokemon to take permanent control of the gym right next to my house so people stop coming around at all hours driving me fucking insane.

I don't even like Pokemon in general but I have been playing a lot with my Girlfriend. She gets pissed off at me because I don't know any of their names.

"Hey Chelsea, there's a fat pink thingy over here and a cat thingy too..."

I think the concept is pretty neat but yeah, there are people everywhere. It's funny seeing dozens of people wandering around almost getting themselves killed.

I played a little too much last weekend. I logged 45 km in three days, so yeah...

Level 20 now. Helps that my place sits between two towers in range that are consistently lit up.

Around my hometown, I'm starting to see folks in Pokemon attire wandering alongside roads.

We have a used car dealer who advertises fairly wacky, easy tasks as a way of getting $100 off your down. At the moment it's "Catch a Pokemon here". Cute!

It's cool how my office building isolates against GPS slightly, which causes my phone to not get an exact lock which makes my character to fidget while the phone isn't moving. I can hatch eggs at work without ever getting up when the fidgeting gets particularly bad.

My wife downloaded it on day 1. She tried to get me to get it. I told her I wasn't playing that shit. But every time she drove and I was the passenger, she passed me her damn phone and told me to catch the pokemon. I was actually enjoying it, and I figured, if I'm playing, I might as well be playing for myself. So I downloaded it. Then I realized everyone in the fucking world is playing it.

Now I'm on level 23, and I'm enjoying it. I live in a small town in the midwest, though. So other than hatching eggs, there isn't as much incentive to walk around town like there would be in a bigger city. There are 4 pokestops on the town square, and 1 just off the square. So that is pretty much where everyone was going. It's died down a lot here, though. Some nights, there is a decent turn out. Other nights, there isn't many people at all. So I'd like to see it updated to make the game a little more enjoyable for rural areas. The game should make me want to get out and walk and explore, not drive over an hour to the city just to get pokemon.
