Pokémon Go! (Android/iOS)

Thing is, the things people like about the game aren't really pertaining to the game itself. The game itself is shallow.

 

Plus, if you're not travelling, you will get bored of the game quite fast.

 

It may be shallow but the game is the gateway to people doing these actions and enjoying themselves.

You can't even play the game if you don't go out somewhere.

The game's appeal doesn't really lie in the gameplay mechanics themselves, but rather in the experience it provides as a whole with how it encourages you to go explore the real world to catch Pokemon and claim territory.

 

It's also a great social icebreaker of sorts as well. You've already got people organising Pokemon Go walks and groups and the game isn't even out proper yet!

 

Yeah, the mechanics of catching and "battling" Pokemon are dead simple, but that's all they need to be here. If there's any failing to be called out here, it's the need to have your phone out and active at all times while playing... (which of course is where the Pokemon Go Plus accessory comes into play ;) )

Yeah but it doesn't take long for you to own all the species in the town

I popped over to the office earlier and one lad was sitting catching a Pidgey. He then came over to the lab and found a Pinsir. :D

Lucky bastard. Best I got today was a Poliwrath.

 

Evolving is a good source of EXP. :)

So I just downloaded it and...I don't seem to be near any pokemon.

 

Do I just...walk around? And they turn up?

Pretty much. Pay attention to the Nearby tab in the bottom right :)

Look for rustling grass, if you go near it you're more likely to see them. They also pop up randomly as you're walking, or if you're near water (water Pokemon). There seem to be more the closer you are to a lot of Poke stops (e.g. London). I bump into far more walking about in central London than near my house.

 

Got an Electabuzz before...so it's safe to say...I'm buzzing.

Ooooo, how exciting. I think I'll be going for a long walk this weekend.

 

 

Even more old-school is that I'll probably need a battery pack for my phone. Ha!
