I think this game alone is going to seriously make Nintendo have a long hard think about the mobile market, I do hope they don't move away from consoles though.
Well. It will probably help fund the next one rather than stop hopefully.

Ive found the lack of internet is definotely a killer for this. I have no pokeballs and areas i go to with free wifi have no pokestops to get some so its getting no love from me at the moment. Maybe when my data limit resets itll get a bit more playthrough from me.

I had no interest in this until the wife, who is not a gamer asked what it was and wanted to have a look at it.

That was 10 days ago and I can safely say we're quite addicted to it. I live in Norwich and today we were in the city and just ambled about grabbing Pokestops and Pokemon. I went down streets I haven't been to in years and even down some I've never been down.

The castle gardens were full of people playing it. I mean literally everyone was sitting on the grass or walking around playing it. Adults and children alike. Some people had put lures out and Pokemon were spawning all over the place.

I've never played a Pokemon game before but I may have to borrow one of my sons games to give it a go.

Personally I've got nothing but positive things to say about this game.

I bit the bullet and flicked on my data while walking home, grabbed a few pokestops, got 3 new pokemon though a squirtle ran off :(.

Bit more fun now i get the pokestops thing.

We've been all enjoying it here. I wouldn't say it's a particularly fantastic game but I don't deny that it's an excellent experience. I think it's the impromptu social aspect about it which I like the most. Me, Sam, Luke and Darran all go out 'hunting' at lunchtime, and I've even spotted out team members out in the wild on the weekends. It's nice.

Oh, and it'll never get old hearing a 60 year old grandmother shout out, 'OH MY GOD: IT'S A DRATOONY' in the middle of Bournemouth Gardens.

I do think the pace feature needs to be better implemwnted. Maybe a sonar blip effort rather then the footprints. Ive missed out on a scyther, squirtle and to a lesser extent as im unable to hunt for it right now - a hitmonlee in west london as its a little bit unintuitive.

The pace feature isn't even working for me :( all I ever see is three footprints. Still level 9 at the moment, got a great range of cool pokes but very few with any decent power. Even then, every gym leader seems to be level 25 with seemingly unbeatable monsters :shock:

I only started playing Pokemon Go a couple of weeks ago but I am really enjoying it.

The biggest problem I have is that the rest of my family can't stand it and have a go when I am playing it.

I don't go walking for miles looking for Pokemon (yes I am lazy) but do check out most areas I visit. Not had a go at the Gyms yet as I am unsure how you are supposed to fight.

Any tips would be appreciated ;)

Looks like , in general , the interest has waned by now. Me and my boy are enjoying the walkabouts and I think , if you treat it as lighthearted , then thats what it is.
Its a distraction.
