    Psyduck and Meowth are top of my list. Oh and the pink one that sings (Jigglypuff?).

    I chose Charmander (old habits die hard).

    But there are no fucking Pokemon. In the CENTRE OF OSAKA. What the hell?? It's not available in Japan yet but you lot had Pokemon before it was out in England. I wonder if I'll get anything with a LURE

    I think the App generates them randomly, just keep it open as you stroll around.

    I have a Squirtle but apparently everything else is about a mile away, so sod that.

    I live near a park so was lucky enough to catch a few there on my way home today.

    I also caught a Zubat in the wall (?) as I went to collect my post. And a Vulpix just appeared randomly in the lounge.

    I think my favourite thing about it though is the fact that it's a REALLY good app for pointing out local points of interest. There is a Poké Stop at the side of the local gay bar (obviously) but it's actually a plaque that I had never noticed before. Stuff like that is quite a neat use of the technology.

    Apparently my nearest Pokestop is a working mens club. Those Pokemon certainly hang out in odd places.

    WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK.

    I've just opened the app, it made me log in, then said verify your account, and then I got a screen saying they were limited signups. I've been playing all week!

    Are there any instructions to this game? I'm tired of not knowing what to do.

    Who named all the Poke Stops though?

    How did they find ELEPHANT SIGN on PUB or CLOCK on LOCAL BRANCH of HALIFAX or WEIRD MURAL on LOCAL UNDERPASS.

    Well it seems that while I am free to roam the empty maps, they haven't unlocked Japan as a spawning area (:gross:) yet.

    I guess I'm the de facto leader of Osaka at the moment then.

    We have 'PEACE MONKEY PAINTING' which is graffiti on a bridge of a monkey smoking weed.

    It's based on a pre existing app that's been building its database for a while.

    Twice now this game has frozen when I've been on the verge of catching something decent. :evil:

    You're probably already doing it. Collect and take over gyms.

    Ingress players submit "places of interest" in their area. These are sued as Pokestops & Gyms

    I've so far only been to a gym once and one of my pokemons almost instantly died so I left.
