    Default Pokemon Go

    Has anyone downloaded Pokemon Go? What do you think of it? I downloaded it and I think it is a great way to exercise and make friends!

    To be fair Pokemon are far more important than any silly job lol. I don't have smartphone that can handle it so I can't play. I probably would but it might get in the way of reading and writing if I'm looking for pokemon all the time.

    I let my Daughter play, if she's outside I go with her because she's only 9, but she seems to enjoy it. It's fun for her when we walk the dog. She does look up because I've warned her not to bump into stuff. She's not addicted, but it seems okay.

    No one is ever addicted to anything at first. I have noticed a number of reports of accidents caused by people not wanting to park and get out of their cars to play.

    I haven't downloaded it yet. Because it's not available yet where I am (it should be available in a few weeks). I love pokemon and I played the gameboy versions and watched the anime when I was younger. My brother is like a walking pokedex. xD

    I will definitely download it and play some. People in my town are already choosing their teams lol. And I'm hoping to join Mystic (Articuno) or Valor (Moltres).

    I gotta catch them all!

    I understand people are already being arrested for trespassing and "prowling" because of this game.

    With the mood in America, it may not be long before one of them is shot... maybe killed.

    Don't be surprised if Google is using this app to track your moving habits and your live location. Playing this game requires you to be giving your location away to the game app. That is one reason I don't play games that require you to have your location on.

    That's sad. It's true though. This game can easily be addicting, and anything that's addicting is dangerous.

    I was riding my bicycle to the grocery store and I saw a Pokemon gym pop up on my map. I followed it to see where it was and it's somebody's house.... lucky for them if they play the game

    Wisdom is the best tactic in battle. You have to know your opponent after all Plus, yeah Articuno is a boss!!!

    Games in general are addictive. I've been known to waste an entire day playing Final Fantasy

    Yes! I chose Team Mystic. It's obviously the best.

    It doesn't matter if the world is made of marshmallows, or you just think the world is made of marshmallows. Either way, you're happy.

    That's all well and good, but you still need to turn Location on if you want to use your phone's GPS.

    It's really not that far fetched (and the game does require use of GPS, I think).

    I'm really not into it, and honestly, the whole "it's good exercise" routine comes off as a way to justify playing the game, not as genuine interest in exercising. But! If people really are moving around more, that's still something positive. I'd rather see someone burn calories imitating the walking dead than burn brains cells watching The Walking Dead. Lol. (Just teasing.)

    I love it, team valor!!! (: pretty funny when I go to the park and I see like 20 people I haven't seen in 5+ years walking around catching Pokemon. But you just have to be smart, and safe. Watch what your doing and not walk out in the middle of the street lol. But I'm a pretty big Pokemon fan, so it really appeals to me.
