    I'm loving Pokemon Go. I'm nearly level 5 due to servers being constantly offline and the fact i live in the sticks :|

    Pokemon GO is tremendous! My friend came over (as if it were the olden days) and we went on a walk to the Transport Museum (multiple Poke Stops in there) and tried taking a gym but we saw a fat nerd also there who seemed to be holding the gym down well.

    This has been a huge success so far. I'll probably get it whenever I bother to get a new phone.

    There was a DROWZEE outside the FISH AND CHIP SHOP

    There were lots of geeky types brandishing phones and tablets outside the shopping centre :david:

    I find the app to be super buggy which puts me off playing. SUPER fun when it works though.

    Is everyone just playing with a dodgy copy now? Or did I miss the official release?

    I used a SIDELOADING BODY BELT or something to get it. It hasn't been officially released yet

    I've just set my region to Australia and created an Australian Apple ID just so I can get Pokémon Go. I feel like a sham of a thirty year old.

    I can confirm that playing this while driving is not a good idea.

    No but erratic driving as I try to catch a Pokemon is not clever (I don't even like Pokemon).

    I also shamefully went to the effort of creating a US account to download this at the age of 34.

    I've caught Ratatta, Squirtle and Pidgey.

    I have no idea what I'm doing to be honest.

    And it took Pokemon Go to help you reach this visionary revelation? Praise be to Nintendo.

    The spawn has this and the school where she works is a gym. I have no idea what that means because I zoned out after the first five minutes of explanation.

    An oriental teen walked into me today trying to find something on his phone. I gave him a stern glare before wishing I could have a go.

    Is it a free ap that will become available in the UK at some point?

    Yes - it's only in a few countries at the moment because of "server issues".

    There was a wild rumour going around last week that everyone downloading a non-legit copy was going to get device-level banned but so far, that doesn't seem to have transpired - plus, there's no easy way of doing that on Android.

    I spent today wandering Manchester's canalways catching Pokémon. I risked the wrath of The Pusher, and for little more than a collection of Magikarps. I did get a Dratini in Picadilly gardens however.
