Pokemon GO

by Manijure » Wed Jul 06, 2016 1:38 pm

So I heard Pokemon GO just got released for Android and iOS... Once I'm done with my internship for the day (can't use my phone during then), I'll download it and give it a go, because I can never say no to Pokemon.

Have any of you guys tried it yet? If so, what are your thoughts and critique?

Huh.
It is?
I guess I'll try it later, depending on its size.

Actually, checking the App Store shows no Pokemon GO.

Huh. I saw on Facebook that one of my friends already got it. I guess it's only available on Android in the U.S.

Fingers crossed that I can evolve my Zubat all the way to Crobat...

Put up a poll regarding which team you picked. I figure now that many of you have access to the game (aside from those in Canada, Great Britain, and the Philippines, my condolences).

Yeah, I realized... I think they are going to add Gen 2 Pokemon in a future update, so my fingers are still crossed. Golbat will do for now. :)

cp585 magmar ftw

FYI, university campuses are amazing for playing this game. A ton of modern art = a ton of pokestops; and college students seem intent on having at least one Lure Module in range of you at any given time.

The University of Maryland campus, which is two minutes away from where I intern), has a lot of Poke Stops and a couple of gyms. I'm planning on going there to get lunch, so I'll certainly get stocked up on Poke Balls.

My highest CP Pokemon is Pidgeot with about 400. I am in no shape to challenge any of the gyms now. :P

You need wifi for GPS right? (I know nothing about mobile phones and such)

Because if so, I probably won't even be able to play the game since I don't have wifi everywhere...

Anyway, my friend said that he instinctively chose team yellow, which is funny because he is colour blind.

Hmmm... I wonder why he picked yellow... ;)

If you have cell phone data, then you don't need wi-fi. You're going to be outside 99% of the time, and wi-fi usually only has a strong signal inside buildings and homes. Of course, if you use the app long enough, your data will eventually drain out (unless you have an unlimited data plan), but it doesn't use as much data as you expect. Use wi-fi if you're at home, obviously.

My friend and I double-teamed a gym, and it works very well.

I picked yellow solely because Zapdos (and the Electric Type) is my favorite legendary bird.

Is this a good or bad time to state that my favourite Pokemon is Arcanine? If anyone has an Arc/Growlithe please tell me

It's adorable :D
I hope it gets a Mega at some point, although idk if I want an offensive or defensive one. Fur Coat would make it a physically defensive behemoth, and with investment in SpDef and Will O Wisp it would be an amazing multi-purpose wall
Alternatively a fire equivalent to Pixilate/Refrigerate/Aerialate would be awesome for an offensive mon. Stab boosted Extreme Speed makes it a lethal revenge killer, Stab boosted Return would be a viable alternative to Flare Blitz and it wouldnt take much to give it a great speed tier.

Arcanine has like base 550 stats already, but they're spread so evenly it's multipurpose, which isn't the best in pokemon, but add those 100 stars anywhere and add the right ability and you could have a behemoth.

Sorry about that

Pepe deleted Pokemon GO because the game lost all of her progress and she doesn't know why. It happened when she cleared the tab by flicking it up.
