ArcticuKitsu Posted July 8, 2016 Report Share Posted July 8, 2016 Alright, who's having fun with this new hyped game for both android & iOS. I'm on the android, and in Canada, that I'm simply using the unofficial APK because of how screwy the developer team behind this are. So much conflict behind the scene that I'm even hearing about it, and Nintendo forcing it out on Niantic. That, and whomever controlled the Twitter social network assumed USA makes up the whole North America that they forgot both Canada & Mexico in there that there was a massive Canadian uproar. Oddly no Mexican rage, yet us Canadians being upset that we joked about #brexit from North America that we're no longer part of it. ---------- - Pokemon GO Homepage: http://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-video-games/pokemon-go/ North American Trailer (American only): The purpose of Pokemon GO is to use the GPS function & the back-facing camera to capture Pokemon, power them up, and to gym battle. The way you move in the real world influences how you Pokemon in the Pokemon GO world, as well as what Pokemon you encounter. Water Pokemon should appear near water (rivers & lakes), as well as flying in open fields, and similar. Lots of traveling to be had that even hatching eggs requires you to burn actual km/miles to hatch those eggs to hatch into actual Pokemon which then you can either give to the Professor for pokemon specific candy, or to raise as your own for PVP battles. Micro-transaction is indeed a thing, yet it's a convenience thing. You would pay for more Pokeballs, incense (Pokemon come to you), lucky eggs, lure modules, incubators, bag upgrades, Pokemon storage upgrades, and coins to buy all these things. It's similar to KanColle where you can pay for such if you want, yet it's already free enough that you don't need to pay for their goods. This is if you don't have access to Pokestops & leashed to your own internet. Later, you should be able to trade your Pokemon, as with actual PVP. As of release there are 117 Pokemon, more being added by the year, or eventually. --------- My Experiences: Even when leashed by the internet (no data plan on my phone) I can basically play being stationary where I live. I won't get Pokeballs & such because I can't get close enough to a Pokestop, yet they're dotted in a circle around my area, about 7, that I can simply get tons of Pokeballs and eggs as needed. Even at home, the incense is just something to boost spawning all that much more slightly (roughly 10% more), yet pokemon still reach me. My area is basically route 1 from the red/blue/yellow area that I can get get those love levels where I'm at. A Pidgeot & Seadra appeared, yet they're oddities in my area. Seadra came to me from a 'pond' area while Pidgeot came from a parkling lot area. The Pokemon you can reach tend to be as far as a 5 minute walk across the street. Anything you can reach within 5 minutes is within your reach. Basically from here to many the next 5 houses over. I have two Pokemon gyms I can reach from my room, yet you need to be level 5. My trainer is level 4. I also wish I could get the stupid AR mode working so I can see Pokemon interacting around me. It's that small novelty I'm missing that's making this all the more enjoyable. It hates my phone, or Pokemon GO is still just that unpolished. It's frustrating. I want AR Mode to work on my phone! My Pidgey is back! I can now raise it up to be my long-term. Pidgey used to be my flying & heavy attack Pokemon in the original three Pokemon games, then in Crystal, and then in the X&Y game. Never failed me. Pokemon I caught when I posted this game. You can also send any extra Pokemon back to the Professor for them candy to power up your Pokemon. As amused as I was when reading Americans & 1 Dutch going out to have their exercise (I wasn't tuned into Australia & others) that I laughed a lot at their silliness. I can now see why, and I want to do so myself, yet stuck leashed to my internet. I can only stay within my room, or home, yet still able to grab Pokemon. It's an awesome game which can even be so much more, if Niantic keep adding onto it. I laughed at people going into parks, their apartment parking lot, going into other people's backyards, and such. It's so silly, yet I can see why. It's even got people driving their cars, going cycling, and simply going out. People have done very silly things. It's a simple game, yet it's quite addictive for how simple it is, yet it obviously needs more. We shall have more PVP options, yet hoping we also encounter PVE related trainers. Just something for the fun of it, immersion, and such. Imagine if Victory Belles had a phone app which made you look around for blueprints, spies, or something in your area. Imagine how those groups of people would be going about, if a third of what Pokemon influenced people to do. It be gimmicky, yet be amusing with whatever they can brainstorming to do with it. I now need to find out where Vulpix roams around so I can pamper my Vulpix in my "Kitsune curiousity" manner for my love of Japanese kitsune (fox girls) heh. Vulpix, Ninetails, Zoroark, & Fennekin. They shall be ones I shall be seeking from this day onward. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
