Default Pokemon Go!

For those Pokemon fans: If you guys have a smart phone, you should download Pokemon Go. I just caught a squirtle for my first Pokemon. :')

Actually, it just got released in Australia so I'm not sure if you guys will have it yet. (Since most of you are across the other side of the planet to me).

In case you have no idea what I'm talking about refer to this: https://youtu.be/2sj2iQyBTQs

It's doesn't surprise me that much. EVERYONE is going to want to download pokemon go, and it could very easily overload their servers.it could be that they want to let in people in waves so that they won't suddenly go down.

True. We usually get everything last here though, so it's a nice surprise.

It's so much fun you guys! Every building/restaurant/Park is a pokemon gym, or place to collect items, etc.

Update: just caught a ratata in my room! XD alright, promise I won't spam you all.

not everyone. You need a massive data plan to play the game. It's an MMO that requires travelling afaik.

That immediately ix-nays me from it.

You can get it in any country on Android by googling "Pokemon GO apk" and downloading it. You might have to change security settings on your phone in order to do so, but works great around my location in Massachusetts! I got to level 5 and was heading towards a gym to try before the servers went down and I had to go into work. They are still not working for me but it is so much fun!

That would be cool if it changed what pokemon spawn depending on the weather, time of day, and location.
Pokemon is about adventure after all.

And OH SHIT. Reach a certain elevation and more flying types appear! Climb mountains and shit!
Go to the top of Mt. Everest and battle Red. o.o
Go to the ocean.

Hit up major landmarks to get legendaries!
Each wonder of the world has some crazy event HOLY BALLS THE POSSIBILITIES


CAN YOU BATTLE FRIENDS??!!!

God damn im so hyped by the sheer opportunities i could come across i wish i had a damn phone

Apparently my phone isn't compatible with the game and it's only 3-4 years old, is Pokemon Go really that hard to run?

EDIT: Thanks to Tarrik for helping me download the APK and install it on my phone manually, game runs absolutely fine.

Sister got it, but she can't get any pokemon cause they're all in deep ravines or on the side of a cliff. Plus all we got are Zubat and Ekans, so she's not so thrilled.

Yes, so buggy! It's on and off saying my gps isn't working, but for some reason I've caught a million ratatattatas in my area. Was hoping my workplace would be a pokecentre. Haha.

There's also an eevee near my house!
