    Dan dude, having a gym across the street is a blessing. Im struggling to get to level 5 since im stuck at work or home. This weekend we are going on a vacation. We were supposed to go to dallas, but due to current events we decided not to. Instead we are going to the science museum and take our girls shopping. So hopefully the museum provides some nice pokemon and maybe even a gym.

    Not really, how old were you when you got into Pokemon? I was 8 so makes sense.

    I mean I don't want parents thinking that a 29 year old bearded dude is taking pictures of their children. No reason for a dude like me to be at a kids playground if I don't have a kid ya know?

    I've been trying to play this game. It has a lot of potential. However, I think it's pretty unacceptable how fuckin buggy this service is. The servers being CONSTANTLY overloaded is somewhat understandable, but they really should have expected this much hype. But goddamn, the game is more buggy than it's not. GPS fucking up, freezing the entire phone, gym battle 1HP glitches, etc. It's kinda amateur and it runs like a beta.

    Regardless, I'm going to keep trying to power through it. I hope the developers iron out all the issues sooner rather than later because I'm still pretty excited about it. My real concern though is how many casual people are going to try this game out, get the "servers overloaded" message a few times or some other combination or bugs or glitches, then just uninstall the game and never try it again because they're not hardcore hyped fans. I feel like Niantic needs to get their together QUICKLY.

    Of course but I expect they meant game was gonna be played by kids mostly (8-12). So playground isn't out of bounds.

    I deadass just stood on a street corner for a few minutes trying to catch one of these motherfuckers. I probably looked like I was having a seizure while trying to take pictures of my surroundings or something.

    Fuck this game.

    It happens to me too.

    Now if it froze during the pokeball catch animation. Wait till the loading icon stops flashing then reset. It should be in your possession.

    There are, like, zero Pokemon around me. The joys of living in the sticks/a region where the game isn't officially released yet. Time for a walk tomorrow to catch me some critters.

    Any reports of people getting legendary Pokemon yet?

    Found this on twitter. The caption was "This week in a single photograph."



    I started playing this morning, can't wait to go downtown after work. My wife works in a hospital and she found a bunch of cool stuff there.

    None have been released yet. reddit.com/r/pokemongo is a good resource for info and hysterical memes though.

    It has already. Pretty sure I read something where someone was hit by a car while fucking with it and ended up losing their life. Unsure if it was real as I didn't investigate it further but I wouldn't be too surprised.

    I just installed it and caught a Charmander.

    Then I walked outside and came back in and my fiance asked me why I went out. I said BECAUSE THERES A ZUBAT NEARBY!!



    update: caught 5 Zubats, an Aerodactyl and a Nidoran!

    and 2 Weedles. And a Bulbasaur. And a Goldeen. And a Poliwag.


    lol, and I've just been laying here with that perfume thing on and they're all coming to me.

    Now I'm on level 3...

    I've been walking around seeing people playing Pokemon Go, and I feel like I'm watching an episode of Black Mirror
