    I notice some areas are far more Poke heavy. My area is surrounded by Pokestops - living in the town centre has it's perks.

    I don't get any on my walk to work until I get to the city centre. But I think they don't appear near main roads. I may have to make a detour through the graveyard where there are Pokestops and a gym. I went a new way through town today so I went past more Pokestops :shy:

    I downloaded this at lunchtime and went back to the office not realising how to flick the ball thing properly and there was a thing sat on my desk. Literally sat ON my desk.

    I must be on my own as this is fucking SHIT. Constantly freezing and it drained my battery of 50% in less than an hour. I saw SIX people on the bus home transfixed to the screen. It's a fucking EPEDEMIC. I give it a couple of weeks till everyone is bored silly.

    For something fucking shit you must have been been pretty engrossed. We just did a walk to Kelvingrove and back that took 4 hours and I'd lost 90% power.

    It kept freezing every time I managed to catch a Pokemon and I had to restart the app. After catching a bundle I got bored. What else is there to to? Can you fight with people?

    You fight in gyms. There's a few where you live, in Govan.

    I do like it but it gets boring quite quickly. I hope they add more to it soon.
    Also it really needs more of an in game guide. Only by searching online have I found out how everything works.

    I think you'd be good at it because you do so much waking about anyway!

    Yes, but I like looking at my surroundings, not having my face buried in my phone screen at all times.

    Does one only find Jigglypuffs and Clefairys down the bender bars then??? Is this an attempt by the illuminati to save the GAY SCENE and create a new SODOM and GORMORRAH??

    Is the only way to get Lure modules with coins? How do you get coins without paying real money?

    I think I just don't GET the appeal. But I don't like to feel like I'm missing out.

    I've got the day off tomorrow and will be around central Bristol quite a lot, so I'm going to give it a go. It will either irritate the shit out of me, or I'll return hopelessly addicted.

    For some reason Knightsbridge is full of Squirtles and Old Park Lane is all Magikarp. I was mildly disappointed to see that Trafalgar Square isn't full of Pidgeys.

    I think you get one at level 8, then probably start receiving them at pokestops from then on, I've seen people setting them off here, there and everywhere though.

    Yaaas Pipo my Ludicolo sista!

    Meanwhile, I just evolved my Poliwag into Poliwhirl!

    I wonder when they'll introduce the other generations.

    There is a Pokestop next to my house at the university halls so last night every half hour or so I got more balls and eggs from sitting on my sofa.

    I presume this is a good thing?

    Thing is, I still have NO IDEA what I'm doing really but it's SUCH fun. On my walk home from dinner last night, me and my friend put it on for a laugh and bumped into FIVE sets of young'uns doing it. And everyone was really nice and social and blah blah blah. It's fucking BRILLIANT to see, though GRUMPY MR SHEENA thinks it's terrible that now I'll be on my phone instead of looking at what's around me, ignoring the fact I'll actually want to GO OUT of an evening rather than collapsing and dying on the sofa after work which was something else he was MOANING ABOUT.

    Well exactly. Do people even recognise what's around them when they walk about or just let it all gloss over them? Last night when I was hunting I noticed a memorial tree, various painted murals, a ship and various statues because they were all Pokestops.

    You should go on a hunt and then go for a walk with him and point them all out in a SMARMY way.

    It really helps to know how to actually progress in the game. I didn't realise until yesterday (because my girlfriend's flatmate who has progressed RIDICULOUSLY told me) that I needed to keep catching those Pokemon I already had in order to transfer them back to the professor and gain candies to evolve the highest powered one of that Pokemon. Edinburgh is AWASH with Drowzees so i've caught shitloads and sent them back to I can get candies and evolve into a Hypno! I'm on 39 and I need 50.

    Used Incense this morning and caught about 15/20 on my way to work, including two newbies... a Dratini and a 300+ CP Weezing. :disco:

    The slow servers are a HUGE problem though. Playing this last night as I walked to a friends between 6pm and 7pm was impossible to catch stuff without having to restart the app and I lost two catches because it froze. Playing this morning was much easier because most people were at work already, lazy schoolkids on their hols weren't up yet and the Americans are all in bed.

    I also still have an issue where the "shop" and "journal" sections are totally blank when I open them. It's a permanent issue... they have just never appeared for me.

    Edit: Additionally, Shura's album is my Pokemon catching soundtrack of choice.
