Ok, I've been playing it a bit of late and have discovered my local police department really doesn't understand the concept. I pulled a team rocket and stole the krabby they caught right out of their holding cell Laughing


On a different note, Why are we not talking about this guys?

Probably nobody's talking about it because all of the remaining active members are older, non-gamers.

I think it's pretty awesome, and I get a kick out of watching the people walk down my street with their phones up, clearly looking for Pokemon. Sadly, I don't have a smartphone myself, so I'll just have to stick to playing my 3DS.

I did follow my sister in law around and help her catch an Eevee on the side of the road. :3

Myself, I barely have time for gaming. When I finally have some, I'm into RPGs and strategies for PC; somehow Pokemon never attracted me.

I don't have a phone either. The concept does seem kind of intriguing, but....

Our local Family Dollar branch has been seeing a rise in sales of lower level phones capable of supporting the game. It is not only drawing in non pokemon players taking up the game but also pushing up phone sales. It is also pushing up foot traffic at a number of locations such as museums and churches.

I don't have a lot of time either anymore but I do walk just about everywhere so it is simply a matter of bringing the game up on the phone every time I go some place. It is kinda fun but niantic really needs to resolve the bugs that have cropped up before they loose players.

I think it's a fun concept, but I was never really a Pokemon girl, and I'm not expecting to invest the time to get into it just for this. Some folks seem to be getting reckless with their playing, but some folks are doing cool things with it - I've seen articles on a dog shelter getting their dogs walked by Pokemon Go players, and some young people in my area had a Pokemon Go & Litter Cleanup day.
