Pokémon GO Releases!
« on: July 06, 2016, 10:59 »
heck yeah my mans Pokémon GO finally came out last night (in Australia/New Zealand) which means if you want to, you can download and play it right now. I've been playing it for like 20 minutes in my room and I've caught Bulbasaur, Pidgey, Tentacool, and 3 Weedles (and in the time I spent writing this I caught another Pidgey). I don't think Pokémon usually occur on your position this easily, but I used an incense which draws Pokémon to my location for 30 minutes so it's been pretty easy for me.

Capturing Pokémon is fairly easy, you just have to throw the ball at them, and it seems like there are a lot of PokéStops and Gyms all over the place. I don't know what either of them do since I haven't been outside to a PokéStop yet, and you need to be Level 5 to access a Gym, but that's cool.

Right now, they only have Kanto Pokémon available, but I'm sure they want to expand the Pokémon you can catch in the future, considering there are 731 (?) Pokémon as of X/Y.

I'm excited to go and take a shower then go outside and catch me some more Pokémon!

My current haul:

if you have an iPhone you can make an iTunes account with an American address and download from the American App Store

It's fun when it's not having server troubles. Caught a spearow in Tesco earlier.

i went downtown and there were SO many people playing PGO around town! i ended up setting up a lure and literally like 50 people ended up swarming around it and we ended up freaking the cops out. they came up to our car and shined flashlights at us and were like "oh you guys are playing that new pokemon game? that's fine but you all can't be here and gotta leave" and i'm like damn i spent that money on a lure. but what a time to be alive.

BTW guys, how i got the lures is download google play surveys, they give you like 20 cents for one question surveys, 90% of which are "are you hispanic or latino". it's sick and i've got like $30 from it

The servers always have problems so I don't get to play it very much.

its kind of illegal
At most it's against Apple's TOS to use a US/AUS/NZ account outside of those regions, so they'll probably ban that account after a while (which won't be an issue because by then you can just download the UK one, and your progress will be tied to a separate Google account), but it's hardly illegal.

people are getting banned for it so im gonna play it safe
The only people that have been banned are people using modified apps, which are obviously going to get you banned because that's cheating. Sideloading an app hasn't gotten anyone banned and anyone who tells you that is lying.

Anyway, been having a lot of fun with GO this week, my Pokédex is coming along nicely too, at 48/151. Strongest Pokémon is a 832 Magmar. Was sat down in the city centre yesterday near a Gym and it was fascinating watching how many people walked past playing the game catching Pokémon or approaching the gym. When it releases officially here it's going to be huge, I'm so excited.

Join up Team Valor! We rule, let's take over the world! My town first ;p

I've been having a lot of fun, my friends and I were running all around town from 2 pm to 11 pm today catching pokemon and meeting other trainers. It is INSANE how many people are out playing it in my town. Friday night we had a crowd of 60 but average crowds are like 40 people. The police stopped by again and one of the officers downloaded the app and was asking us for tips and we helped her get started! I love this game, it's so cool, it's really nice to get out and walk around town, meet likeminded people, and then steamroll your enemies' gyms.

yeah its like barely illegal at all... i dont even think apple cares that much? ive been using the different account thing for months to play pazumatsu which is only available in japanese app stores.

most people i see getting banned are android users downloading the .apk from sites. modified or not, it seems to just be an issue there.

but apple barely care.

Finally have a day off work so I could spend a bit of time wandering about town with this! Got my ass handed to me at a gym but I did manage to find a Clefairy. Also I've learned more about this town through Pokespots that I have from living here for the past 31 years.

Team Valour ftw!
