[Android/iOS] Pokémon GO
With its recent release, people have been more social than ever. Over the past few days, we ran into people who were also hunting the elusive eevee, and people who wanted to defeat the same gym.


As seen on Reddit, using a lure at a pokéstop not only attracts wild pokémon, but dozens of other players.

Also of note is that pokémon stock (Niantic) is up 8.8% since launch day.
We knew it would be big, just not THIS big.

-Microtransactions
-Battery drain
-Server crashes due to player overload

+Fun
+Gives reason to travel more
+Very social


Thoughts?

RE: [Android/iOS] Pokémon GO
I spent over an hour walking around looking for pokemons and found none. I know the game ain't supposed to be out where I live (Norway), but pokestops and gyms are all in place already. I still don't get what the social aspect of it is. Am I supposed to be able to fight with my pokemons? Do I fight with other people? How the F am I supposed to get to level 5 to challenge a gym if I can't find pokemons? I don't even like pokemon. Why am I so upset about this?!

I play too many games at once.

1. Battles are all done at gyms.
2. Trading isn't implemented yet.
3. If you don't see any pokémon in the "nearby" bar, reboot the app.

EDIT: Also, you can still hatch new pokémon from eggs you get from pokéstops, which also gives XP.
EDIT2: Be sure you got it from the app store, as there was a keylogger passed around as a semi-legit .apk file.

Couldn't tell if sarcastic or not.
Not a drinking bar; it's a box on the bottom right of the screen.

Oh. Well I'm stupid. There was 1 pokemon with three footprints before I uninstalled it.

RE: [Android/iOS] Pokémon GO
Someone already found a way to hatch their eggs without leaving home. The trick is as easy as taping your phone to a turntable/record player, and letting it go around for a while.
