    Pokemon Go is the hottest game to hit the market in quite some time. You can download and play it for free, and it will not allow you to just sit and tap buttons. It ig going to make up get up and go hunting, which is the main appeal of the game. Did you know that you have Pokemon perhaps living in your house or your yard? You can't see them, but when you are playing Pokemon Go, your phone or tablet turns into a GPS enabled Pokemon Detector and you can find them.

    If you dare, download this game (for iPhone and Android). It's quite addicting!

    There is a station for Pokemon right in front of my house and one is sitting right beside my computer . Little bugger watches me all day . It just sits there looking at me . Kinda creepy if you ask me ...
    The first week there were hoards of zombie pokemon people catching them in the park ... Don't see anyone anymore . Also a pokemon station was right on the main 4 lane road down from my house . Lot's of horn blowing the first week as zombie Pokemon hunters walked out into traffic to do battle with there Pokemon's ...

    ;) ;) ;)

    Not sure I like this kind of game, as the real trap in it is the in-app purchases.

    But it is so addicting! I found my first one on the front lawn. Since then they have been inside the house and in parking lots at the market. They are even inside stores.

    have you consulted the casualty reports for pokemon go? quite a few wounded and even some dead as well as multiple muggings from crooks stalking Pokemon "hiding spots"

    my son said a lot of players are stopping becasue of some glitches, and then when you download something to go around the glitch-you sometimes get your acct banned

    You'd lose - anyone over 18 is legally an adult. and I've heard about adults walking off cliffs, into traffic, etc....

    are you wearing a Pikachu hat right now? :smiley-laughing021:


    but seriously--all things in moderation; just that most americans seem to have never heard of "moderation" unless it is someone online to complain to

    my son-when he was playing it- was starting to use a dupe map

    there is someway to download an app that allows you to falsify your location

    he was sitting here in central pa and "walking" through NYC playing PkGO

    something that used google maps ground level

    that got him banned too :)

    I think I'll play the original 1996 version this one looks worse than the graphics in the 1996 version. I haven't played it because my phone is not compatible with it :P

    Some guy got chased out of a neighbor's garage recently because he was going for one inside. You should just catch the one next to your computer and he should go away. :) The one on the front lawn (my first one) was the only one I have caught there. There was one inside the hardware store, and one in the parking lot at Costco. Some kid also saw it and was going for it. So, I did not know if everyone playing sees the same Pokemon as I do. Are they connected to everyone's game?

    when my son was downtown with his friends, they would see the same P-mon at the same time. Seems another kid came along and joined them and he signed in (or whatever) after they did and he was seeing different characters

    about the only thing i find cool about it is one-it gets kids out and about again, around here, they even need to go into the woods a bit while hunting the P-mon
    2-it causes kids and other ppl to interact with one another again personally instead of through the internet

    the thing reminds me of the GPS landnav course we as surveyors would lay in for trng purposes (trng ppl on the new (at the time) PLGR gps receivers) or what the kids now call "geocaching"
