Recommended Posts

 

Seems to be working on my phone. Can't find any in the UK though, they all seem to be in Fance. :p

I thought you'd have to go around the city looking for these to actually catch them. Turns out you just find them on the map and tap them. It's cool enough, found a few in Dublin, London and France.

You were beaten by Gaf, Joe. I hereby strip you of the Pokemon Professor title. :D

By mere minutes :(

 

I'm still the Pokémon Master.

For the very first time, I can say that I've caught 'em all.

Yes, this is the very first Pokémon game that I've actually completed.

Oh, and this is almost certainly done with proper permission from Nintendo. The thing is...this seems like a bit too much effort. They've done crazy stuff before, but this just seems like there's going to be more. It works the other way round, too - would Nintendo/Game Freak give permission for just this thing, or is it part of something bigger?

 

I think that Nintendo may actually be working with Google on some kind of official apps, and this is just some fun to break the ice. It would make sense for Nintendo to lump the work with someone like Google, too, as Google would make it for both Android and iOS.

They did the Dragon Quest themed maps the other year, I wouldn't read much into it.

How do you people have the patience to find them all?

 

I'm not sure patience is the right word. :p

 

People, try CERN institute.

CERN is where I was brought to at the start. Where are the other pokemon labs?

It's just like how Gary beat Ash to becoming Pokemon Master, but then Ash beats Gary to become the new Champion.

Cube is the Pokémon Master! Winner!

 

Well, 14 years ago I was able to name every single Pokémon in order.

I have only managed to get to 26. How sad.

 

I was also hoping that it'd be more active in the sense that you'd have to walk around your area / the world finding these pokemon (like how the add portrayed). Maybe one day.

Today, I can do that :P It's even more impressive seeing as there's now 721 Pokémon, not 251

 

People also throw numbers at me and I can give them the Pokémon.

151 in the UK at that time. And I hadn't even played the game.
