Anyone get this game yet? It seems to be EVERYWHERE. I was in dt Montreal today and saw a half dozen ppl playing in in a 3 block walk, and it's not even out in Canada yet.

This game seems significant enough for its own thread... What say u? Have u caught as many zubats as me? (no, it's all I catch)

there is a nearby park i love to walk my dog in and it was nice to get accosted by strangers about pokemon, rather than about signing petitions (which was par for the course 3 weeks ago)

a woman with a shiba inu talked to me...after some chitchat abt our catches (and our dogs) she said, "my dog is like a real life vulpix" ~ oh brother!

i was a fan of ingress (it got me to know my neighborhood a lot better!) and played pokemon for 17+ years so yeah i am all about this

So many people in parks and just walking down the street playing. Often find myself surrounded by like 30 other players.

what a crazy phenomenon. i'm trying this out, no idea what to do w/ anything yet. there's a few landmarks in my block and wouldn't you know it there were people strolling around them with their phones out just a few minutes ago.

how do teams work? I haven't battled anyone yet.

and i really wonder where they're pulling these images from and assigning spots; about half were really out of date.

i go out running with an old phone, just for safety's sake, in case I get caught in some rain or something. i might have to get out there with my actual phone to get these eggs hatched.

I downloaded this and then deleted it before going through with signup. I'm really averse to anything involving sharing location data, esp with others.

this game is probably the second or third best thing to happen to me this year. totally engrossed. i've walked 17,000 steps /13.5 km today and it's only 2 pm.

played it with my partner in a park, she isn't into pokemon but she has an S7 and i have a measly S3 so i've been sad

it's a lot of fun but i worry about glued-to-phone-while-walking, we are definitely going to drown in a lake

her battery was maybe 25% gone after 45ish minutes? apparently keeping the camera off saves a lot of battery i think

Park near my house flooded with doofuses including yrs truly and partner looking for pokemon, ppl walking the sidewalks slightly too slowly staring at their phones, this is a real phenomenon

I kinda want to just go sit in some public place for a while and watch players bump into one another.

This is pretty much all that the two dudes nearest me at work talked about last week.
