PokémonGo

Well, the official launch here in Europe hasn't quite happened yet but it has been released in latin america and I've managed to download it myself. I've been playing for just over an hour and I must say it's very addictive indeed, I really want to get out there and visit all the monuments to obtain more items and to be able to catch a wider variety of pokémon.

When you first create your profile you get to choose from the typical three Kanto starters, I chose the vastly superior Charmander (who wouldn't?). From what I've seen the pokémon are all Kanto 'mon and so far I haven't seen that much in variety, they're mainly Rattatta, Spearow, Pidgey, Pidgeotto, Zubat and the odd Koffing every now and then. That said a friend of mine has also got the game and she's caught Venonats, Weedles and Eevees so it all depends on your area. Here are a few screenshots I took:

You may have noticed that I have about fifty Pidgeys, well to evolve your pokémon you need their "candy" so to evolve Pidgeotto I need 50 Pidgey candy and one of the ways of getting these candy is by catching the pokemon. That said, I need to find out how to release pokemon because gooseberry fool having 50 Pidgeys.

Does it drain your phone battery? Also do you actually have to go out your house to churches etc to get more pokeballs?

I haven't noticed any severe battery drainage, yet. And yes, you need to go out and visit monuments to obtain more items and money.

What size is the app? I tend to consider my downloads more for larger apps. I'll probably try it out anyway.

Also, I see you talking to OrangeRackoon, don't try to hide the bribery...

I've not got it and I probably can't because I have a Windows phone and I don't know if my iPod would be compatible. But I've heard it's a massive battery drain though there is a battery saver mode.

Also, gooseberry fool leaving the house.

The app size is 16MB and so far it only works on Androids.

Edit: Upon playing the game for a while now I take back when I said it doesn't drain battery, it does.

I heard that Nintendo are banning people who downloaded it early using the apk.

From the footage I've seen it seems quite easy to actually catch the Pokemon. Watching a stream where a guy caught a Jiggylpuff on his desk for the first time and in this video that PIMPNITE did all the Pokemon he encountered were caught on the first try.

I think that is a rumour, because whilst it was true they banned people who misused the beta I haven't heard a single person say they have been banned yet. Also, catching pokemon is extremely easy; the only time it's difficult is when your fingers are sweaty and you can't move your finger across your phone smoothly. Up to now I've only had a Zubat and a Raticate break out of a pokéball, the rest have all been caught on the first go.

Waiting for more Gens and more stable servers being added before I go anywhere near this. Still hilarious reading tweets about Pokemon GO tho.
Smart move lol.

Some of the stuff I've seen around the internet about this makes me really want to give it a go, luckily I've got a 3G enabled iPad as I severely doubt they'll bring it to Windows Phone anytime soon. Saying that I'll look a right idiot carrying my iPad around like a phone.....

Shouldn't be surprising, this is the reason they've been doing regional roll outs like this on Go. Start with a small player population in Aus and gradually build up to larger player bases, it's why Japan hasn't had a proper release yet, because they know it will destroy the existing servers. Anyone who's been following the release or already gotten it will know server downtime is common place right now and honestly, the fact that we've got multi-national pressure on things like the Aus servers are probably part of the reason. That said, it's an easy enough fix so long as Ninty or the Pokémon Company just put more money into more server capacity, which they'll likely do quickly since it's a whole lot of money lost every day it's not out in EU territories or Japan. Probably a week's delay at the very most.

Part of the downtime is because it's being leaked out unofficially to other countries.

Guilty as charged though.

So, first a girl found a corpse while playing Pokemon Go and now people are using Pokestops as ambushes for armed robbery. It won't be long until someone dies because of this game.

So a nice little easter egg that some of you might not have heard that I guess people might want to know before a UK release. If you want Pikachu as a starter just repeatedly walk away from the starters and after a few times Pikachu will show up if you want that Pokémon Yellow feel.
