What has been your Pokemon Go experience?

Have any interesting personal Go stories?

Found any dead bodies, drove into a tree, mugged or got mixed up in a drug deal bust?

Do those Pidgeys keep catching you with your pants down on the throne?

Are all your local Policemen also Team Mystic?

Some of my supervisors on traffic control play it. So it's quite handy for them finding new things.
As for me, my phone is too full for it. Though I likely wouldn't get it anyway; only Kanto pokemon and I'm a gen3-4 bloke.

Never thought I'd be driving around at 2 AM looking for pokemon, on the upside I found a Nine Tails and Rapidash, sadly they both had horrible CP (200-400)

This sucks, it only brings feud to the people.

Continient Exclusive.

But that's only towards wild encounters. Anyone can still have a chance at hatching them from eggs no matter what continent you are on.

Plus, Continent Exclusives suggests Niantic has Global Trading on their agenda.

You can tell that whomever was in charge of that decision had a sense of humor.

North America: We got a bull. Pretty sure the stereotype of cowboys and all that is largely on our heads.
Europe: The commedia dell'arte was a largely European invention, by comparison.
Japan: Of course they would get the spring onion samurai bird.
Australia: It goes without saying where the humor lies in them getting the 'mon with a pouch.

I still think Tauros should be available in Mexico and Spain as well. Just think, this year, they could all run TOWARD the bulls in the streets.

Even Kazuki Takahashi plays Pokémon GO now. Here is an illustration of him.

All eight Battle City finalists plus Mokuba.
From left to right: Mokuba, Kaiba, Jounouchi, Atem, Dark Malik, Dark Bakura, Rishid, Mai, Ishizu.
For those who don't get the reference why Dark Bakura says Satoshi/Ash's catchphrase, I recommend you to google "Rica Matsumoto".


I personally don't play Pokémon GO for following reasons:
-I'm always in one place. I'm working about 11~13 hours every day with no break. And when I'm finished, I go home. I don't walk 2.5km from home to my workplace.
-There are only Pokémon of the first generation. And there aren't even 151 in there.
-You can't catch all 721+ Pokémon (yet).
-My favorite Pokémon isn't even there.
-I don't like smartphone games in general.
-I'm more busy with grinding, breeding and catching Pokémon in the regular games.

They already announced that they would be introducing more Pokemon later and Trading in a major update. Legendary Pokemon will likely be events similar to how Niantic makes events in Ingress. My favorite Pokemon is from Gen 4 but I'm still having fun with the first generation. This is one of only three games I have ever played on my phone. It's a long few months waiting for Sun and Moon's release and this game feels fresher than treading water in previous Gen games right now. I have never felt more like an NPC in a Pokemon game than playing this game. And I like it. I don't know why. But I like it.
