thats why we are playing as a team , its only available on the phone as of now

I downloaded it yesterday for about 30 minutes. Lol. Just to see what all the hubub was about. Its cool in concept but very unstable and buggy. I gave up and deleted it after it froze multiple times while trying to catch a couple. Sad i wish it did work, i probably would play it if it worked better. The park near me is a large area for soccer, football, and baseball fields and there are lots of ‘wild’ pokemon over there along with pokestore and a gym, also many up the main street outside my neighborhood. I just got fed up having to restart as it kept freezing as soon as a pokemon would suck into the pokeball itd just stop working and lose connection ect…

Thought itd be something fun for my girlfriend and i to do when we go for walks and such but it isnt compatible with her straighttalk galaxy S4 (android 4.3, game requires 4.4+) so that idea didnt work out either.

I’m seeing this all over FB, I think my kids would have fun with it. I might have to give into the craze and check it out. I would have never imagined that I would ever consider playing a pokemon game… Lol!

My step daughter just “disappeared” for about 15 minutes, when she walked back in the door, I asked her where she had gone off to… she told me about the game, and she had just gone out to find one of the items, and was showing me what it looked like on her phone… looks interesting. I already geocache and she was saying it was a little similar to it. I remembered reading this thread earlier today and kinda just shrugged it off… but thought I would come back here and re-read it.
I’ll probably d/l it shortly, might be interesting if I do some more traveling. But it doesn’t look like I’ll be going anywhere for a few weeks.

I’ve been playing with my girlfriend and daughter. Pretty fun times. Gets you out of the house, gets you moving around and you get to run strategies against other people and their “gyms”.
I’ve given my 17 yr old daughter the speech about her surroundings and she often goes out with our dogs…80lb pit bull and 150lb presa canario…
I highly recommend this game to people who wanna get out of the house and need a good reason.
Fun stuff…:slight_smile:

That is the world we live in it seems.Just about anything can be used for evil if someone wants it bad enough and if we don’t pay attention to our surroundings.I think the game sounds like fun and I would have no reservations playing at all!
Definitely not trying to scare anyone, just making people aware that some punks could use it as well.

I;ve given it a go, it’s more a walk aimlessly about your area than an interactive game. I didn’t feel any thrill when I found a rat-a-tat or pidgey at least, lol … You’d have to be dense to begin with to wander off down dark alleyways just to try catch some virtual monster.
