Pokemon Go discussion thread

...you guessed it. Any posts that don't fit in the other categories - or any discussions about gaming hardware (including Steam Machines!) - should go in here.

Changed my outfit. Very exciting. Hope they fix the footprints at some stage.

Also took the 9 year old for his first poke hunt with his new bitthday tablet. He caught enough pidgeys to make a pidgeot. He was very happy with himself and didn't complain ince that walking around westfield was boring :)

Niantic used UPDATE
It wasn't very effective.

I'm nearly at my wits end with this game. It's all well and good to go after the Pokemon tracking websites but ffs, fix the in-game tracking first before you claim they're ruining the spirit of the game. People wouldn't be using them if the system in-game actually worked.

But hey, I can change my clothes now...

Lvl 19 at the moment and I've been saving all my stardust, haven't evolved anything except for about 40 rats and 40 pidgeys which I evolved after I popped a lucky egg, getting me from mid lvl 17 to early 19.

I think I might just leave the game there for a while, at least until Niantic get their shit sorted with tracking. As it stands now it's literally a giant game of hide and seek in a 1km zone where you have anywhere between 2 and 14 minutes to find the Pokemon on your nearby list without so much as a directional hint.

On the iOS version they removed the battery saving mode in the update for some reason, however you HAVE to have the app open to hatch eggs or get notifications if pokemon are in the area.

Probably removed it because it was buggy, could make phone unable to accept any inputs after "waking". I gave up on it because of that. :(

Yeah, happened to me on android quite a bit too. Shame this is kind of going downhill so quick because I enjoyed running around with my kids catching stuff.

Gen 2 is out, if that's of interest to anyone who previously played and wants new things to catch for a bit

I've been trying to remember to hit the Pokestops up because I kept running out of Pokeballs. :(
Won't have any idea which are the new Pokemons when I try and catch some, I'm not sure I even had half of the old ones. :D
