Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

I was telling my wife this might be the master plan for someone to kill off everyone like Sam Jackson tried to do in Kingsmen.

Everyone is playing it. Everyone will be affected.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

We met some people walking around the neighborhood. It's easy to see who plays.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

Does anyone know why sometimes when trying to capture with a pokeball or great ball, sometimes when you throw it straight on, it has stars on it and veers off to the left or right? I know I'm not swiping in that direction it just flies off to the side. I've had it happen with and without giving them berries.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

I think its a form of defense they use. This happens to me alot when they are red or yellow. In this case I will throw a razjzberry to calm them down.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

Does anyone know if raspberry effects stack?

I ended up using multiples last night on a Tauros I was trying to catch as he popped out of the pokeball at least 5-7 times. While I can't say they made him easier to catch they did seem to keep him from running away.

I think throwing balls works like tablet and phone app bowling.
The ball will go straight only if you roll/throw straight. Any fluctuation will cause the ball to curve or spin to a side.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

If I throw a few that curve to the right, I try and compensate by starting my throw to the left side. It usually works.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

You can also "spin" the pokeball before you throw it to throw a curveball (which is worth additional XP if you capture the Pokémon)

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

The lack of servers or inability to manage the amount of hits this game is generating is ridiculous. I spend more time with "our servers are down we're humbled crap" than actually playing

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

I've been playing daily since it came out and haven't had any issues logging in ever. I've had it freeze a couple times each night when we're out playing but I just restart it.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

There have been issues preventing me from playing for large parts of the day EVERY day since I started. I kind of wish I had joined with my Google account because I suspect most of the problems stem from the trainers club. And when are they going to fix the damn radar?

I've been using my Google account and have had a a bunch of server issues, so I don't think the Trainer Club is to blame here.

The servers were down until like 7PM EST yesterday. I am assuming you play later at night so you may just be missing out on all the server downtime.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

I guess it was just a matter of time.

A real-life dating site has created an app called PokéDates

Yes, you can now chase after those characters with a date!

I played it multiple times yesterday during the day as did a couple other people at my work. I caught 6 pokemon during my lunch and hit up multiple stops with no issues.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

Not sure if related but the Pokemon section of my local target was absolutely ransacked the other day (and they usually have a bunch of stock). Extremely smart to release this prior to Sun and moon even if there's only a residual affect. Plus all the money it's making them. That projection about this game making apple alone 3 billion over the next year is ridiculous.

I actually thought Nintendo got hosed making only that hardware peripheral (which isn't even out yet) but even that should sell like hot cakes at least early on.

Yeah, it died at like 2 or 3PM EST. I spun a pokestop, caught something and then dead.

Re: Pokemon GO (IOS/Android)

I've barely played this week but my wife is into this more than I ever will be. She's so mad about that. She doesn't usually want anything to do with these sorts of things and now, boom, she's telling me all about her latest captures. She even called me on my way home from work to tell me there's a Pikachu lurking around our neighborhood, I should go get it.
