Same company that does Ingress, right?
Ingress is like geocatching, but int he digital world. Would like a real look at what the pokemon thing will be.

Explain the game. You have to walk around outside while holding your phone up?

It's... interesting. I haven't gotten to level 5 yeat (when you can do gym stuff), but it seems like it is a watered down version of ingress with a different skin. Ingress was more fun, but pokemon is way cooler.

I hope that they have plans to make PvP a thing, or actual battles (apparently the gyms are just a "how fast can you tap the screen?" type thing). Also there is no chat.

I will continue to play though.

This seems dumb. I'll play it for a bit.

No battles to capture, you just throw a ball and its automatic. No battling at gym. It's just based on hp and cp of your pokemon.

You basically go to stops and get free items and collect everything. Still fun, but not what everyone expected

I downloaded it this morning. Haven't had much time to play around with it though.

No battles for pokemon? Well that's disappointing.

Must have been the app's fault. When I finally got connected I saw 3 Pokemon right away. You would think that would have happened at work when I first opened it.

Are you nerds catching them all?
I ended up deleting already. It wouldn't load for me most of the time and I know myself well enough to know I would quit playing it in 2 days (see Pocket Mortys)

I think I might delete it. I like it, but there are no gyms where I live, and my phone doesn't load at work.

I'm in such a secluded town, that I only will ever find the normal grass type pokemon.

I may delete it because it's not that fun.
