Pokemon GO (Pick Team Blue)
Posted by: Nebuchadnezzar on October 21st, 2016 @ 2:45PM

You can join my Google spaces for the latest pokemon news https://goo.gl/spaces/EVqAaV9ABqutwW8C9 (click here) I have 15 free subscribers now.

  • 10/21 - up to level 28 and 1/2. I have 0 fun. It's just business.
  • 9/1 - Says 900 days to level 40. What a rip. I'm seeing a lot fewer players now. My 87 channel cleared out to 4 people. My other 50+ channel cleared out to about 27 people. It's dying. The huge mistake they made is disabling all the methods for FINDING POKEMON which gave people such excitement. + the grind to max level is 3 years.
  • 8/29 - level 26 finally. 15 days at level 25.

  • 8/9 - Level 24.
  • 8/7 - Pokemon Go: The Musical
  • 8/7 - UMD student offered $15K for his Pokemon Go account, eBay blocks sale
  • 8/7 - How ‘Pokemon Go’ is helping kids with autism and Asperger’s
  • 8/7 - FAMILY: MAN FATALLY SHOT WHILE PLAYING POKEMON GO IN SAN FRANCISCO
  • 8/6 - Got my daughter started. She's up to L7.
  • 8/4 - One of their 7 stealth nerfs. They updated the refresh rate (delayed it) so when you play by bike, nothing shows or it shows behind you and you have to turn around sometimes. So lame.
  • 8/3 - Pokémon Go Pisses Players Off Again By Making Pokémon Harder To Catch
  • 8/1 - Even Pokémon Go's Biggest Fans Are Turning Against It Right Now
  • 8/1 - They just hosed the game (on Friday). They increased the chance to runaway by 60%, and increased the miss rate by 20%. Then make the Pokemons dodge, and jump way more. You can't farm enough Pokeballs to keep up with all the misses/runaways. They also messed with spawning (seems like nothing there today vs. Friday). They also messed with lures too apparently.
  • 8/1 - Today in Pokémon Go: Fukushima no-go, paramedics to the rescue, stuck in the mud - read these
  • 8/1 - New York governor bars sex offenders from playing Pokémon Go
  • 7/29 - Level 23. I used an egg. I tried the shut the game down to skip the animation trick. It seemed to save about 5 seconds per evolution but I'm not sure.
  • 7/29 - We went to our first big park location. I counted about 150-200 people. It was so insane. There was a grandpa watching 3 kids on a blanket that were playing on IPADS. The game looked horrible at that big size. It was tons of fun. I hated to leave. I can see why people would sit there for HOURS. People had chairs, coolers, it's way better than the other lame things people go. At some point, something spawned out in baseball field and 50+ people ran out it. That was nuts to see too. They all seemed dumbfounded by my bike and bike mount. They were walking everywhere. haha. I'm on year 4 of that. They're 4 years in the past. People also could not walk and play their phone at the same time. They have horrible situational awareness vs. the ingress players. They're all stumbling around like drunks.
  • 7/27 - Level 22. I did some more calculations. My average is 15k XP a day. Which would be like 3.6 years to level 40. haha. I'm doing both ingress and pokemon. If I just did Pokemon and quit ingress I could squeeze out more. I'm at least 3 levels and a week behind already.
  • 7/24 - Go Team old lady (leaders revealed)
  • 7/24 - 'Pokemon Go': Real PokeStops with Brews & Pikachus Coming Soon

  • I feel like the game is burning out pretty quick. The first 4 days there were insane numbers. Now it's dying down but still way more than ingress. I counted 20 players when driving to a store on Saturday.

    I like how now there's pretty girls at my portals when before there was just fat ugly gravel faced's b's.

    I'm worried the Pokemon Go people are going to f it up for us :

    1. Ingress players. Before, I just pull to the side of the road to get a portal and the cops thing I'm doing something else. Now they can figure out I'm doing it for Pokemon Go/Ingress.
    2. These businesses had no idea they had portals, for 4 years now. Now they're discovering it. I went by a portal I've gone for 4 years, and I was only on it a few mins before a security car came out and was camping me and staring me down. Never had a problem before Pokemon Go.
    3. At the college where I play ingress for almost 4 years, suddenly the campus cops are doing patrols, when before they sat in their building in the middle of nowhere. So far they aren't harassing me yet. I worry about them harassing me over my bike.

    The question is how long will this fad last? Will I be back to being the only one in a dying fad playing the game still? I didn't really want to play it but ingress has had no new content in 2 years and 1 month now. They turned off portal submissions a year ago.

    I really like how this game has got people out of their houses, like Halloween. People who are generally dicks in California are talking to each other for the first time. It's revolutionary. People shoulda bought Nintendo Stock haha.

    This game is just insane in popularity. It's just ingress with some pokemon stuff thrown on top. Even all the Pokestops are just Portals from ingress. But suddenly the game is accepted. haha.

    Video from Irvine

    • 7/29 - George Takei playing Pokemon GO. Oh my!Celebrity (i.imgur.com)
    • 7/28 - It's been out 3 weeks but I got my first chance to go somewhere with a lot of spawns. 2 Pokestops with 2 lures on it. I actually nearly ran out of pokeballs. I still haven't tried the parks with 100s of people yet.
    • 7/28 - Two days ago the light changes and like 4-5 cars didn't go. No one honked or anything because, they were all capping a pokemon on the corner. hahaha.
    • 7/26 - Iowa Police Stop and Point Guns at Student Playing Pokémon Go
    • 7/26 - Pokémon Go is at 75 million downloads as it sets more records - Yet the higher level you get, you can't catch rats, pigeons, and crabs
    • 7/25 - The company that created Pokemon Go is now worth over $3 billion
    • 7/15 - City of Miami Police Department's video - At some point this game might become so lame that we don't want to be associated with it, haha.
    • 7/15 - During the livestream of the Turkey Coupe, the chat room on facebook was talking about Pokemon Go instead.
    • 7/15 - Level 16.
    • 7/14 Level 14 almost L15. Going casual.
    • 7/14 - Yesterday a rare dude spawned, and all the buildings started filtering out people like it was a fire drill. I counted over 150 people trying to capture the pokemon. I lost it. haha. It was a once in a life time moment.
    • 7/13 - As I was going shopping, i saw a dad and his 2 daughters both with the game up and they were carrying a Pikachu. It was cute.
    • 7/13 - Last night I counted 20 people on the way home on my bike portals that are now pokestops. I'm really mad and I want credit with my name on the portals I created in Pokemon Go. They're already in Ingress.
    • 7/13 - A nephew put on 3 lures, and in 5 mins, 25 people showed up
    • 7/12 - Awesome Tip guide
    • Pokémon Go Team Discusses Successes, Challenges, And The Future
    • Pokemon Go: After Robberies ... Players Urged to Use Buddy System
    • 7/11 - I counted 26 people in the courtyard at work after work
    • 7/11 - I went to college and the maintenance staff was talking about all the people the other night at 9pm wandering around playing and happy.
    • 7/11 - iOS version of Pokémon Go is a possible privacy trainwreck
    • Level 9, i'm way behind. I was doing ingress instead.
    • 7/10 - "15 people at the park next to my house playing. Someone put a lure on and we all ran over to leech. Then I saw one work person, and a group of 4 teen boys cheering about the gym. haahhah
    • 7/10 - "there's 30 people at heritage park playing my kid said
      some guy in porsche drives up, says is there any good pokemon here, then they told them which ones, and he goes that's good enough for me, and parks haha"
    • 7/10 - Man searching for Pokémon at 3am caught up in 'drug deal' mix-up
    • 7/9 - "My home gym has been blowing up all day, it doesn't stay the same color for more than 15 minutes at most
      And lures are almost permanent at the bar portals down the street
      Ryan"
    • 7/9 - "Lol, I seriously underestimated the amount of people that would play. I knew it was going to be big but this is ridiculous
      Like I seriously didn't imagine I would have a bunch of co-workers playing it on day one
      Charles
      ">

    • 7/9 - "We went to Vets over in Mission Viejo, and literally ran into 30 people playing the game.
    • Joshua"

    • 7/9 - Here's what's coming next to the smash-hit ‘Pokémon Go’ smartphone game
    • Went out today to do my portals (ingress) at my base, counted 28 people playing Pokemon go at 4pm on a Saturday, at the college. Normally for 4 years there's 0 people! A few times I've ran into 1 person playing ingress or 2 max. Unbelievable.
    • One person called it "trick or treating" cuz there's so many groups out doing it.
    • Going to get Pizza, I saw 1 person foot, 2 girls arguing about levels and their progress in the parking lot. Then 3 people on the street corner on the way home. WTF!
    • Facebook is all Pokemon. In Overwatch someone on voice chat said they had to go collect them.

    I really don`t understand the hate. Or the pride in not doing something that is popular. You guys are hipsters or something right? That`s what hipsters are right?

    Why the fuck do you care what other people do in their spare time? I don`t play Overwatch, but I don`t wear that as a point of pride or complain that other people are wasting their time on their chosen recreational activity. Holy shit.

    I think for Ingress, they messed up by making it closed BETA and invite only. By the time they released it to the public, people probably lost interest. I know I did.

    With Pokemon GO, the fad will fade and numbers will dwindle by quite a bit, but people and the execs will always try and re-capture the magic, like WOW.

    I can't imagine why these types of games would be appealing. I keep picturing people walking into traffic while staring at their phones. Maybe it's for the best.

    The only thing more annoying than all the Pokemon Go content plastering the internet (and it`s really not that annoying) is the people trying to show how great they are because they don`t play it.

    The FB one I`ve seen is something like "I`m not 10 and I have important adult things to do so I`m not playing Pokemon GO."

    Well gee, thanks for taking the time to post that to your FB Mr. Too Important For Pokemon Go But Not For Complaining About It On FB.

    I wonder what would happen if the Pokemon Go players decided to put as much effort into getting a job. It would probably be too awesome for our economy to handle.

    im a big fan of forest queens comment

    because only unemployed people can play pokemon go.

    working people never go outside, or walk to work, or break from work.

    also for those unemployed people using their obama phones, it's like all you have to do is show up at the job distribution centre and say 'hi i'd like to work today instead of playing pokemon go' and they then hand you a shiny career

    Well Shlonglor, I remember you played Ingress and now I see you play its upgrade, Pokémon Go. There`s a lot of bad things about the game. You should read or watch the videos on it:

    I don't have the game, but I see people already burning out at the university. It really isn't a pokemon game. You have no connection to your pokemon and you certainly don't fight or trade them.

    This comic does a great job of laying it out:

    The conspiracies are hilarious. The all powerful CIA somehow gets Nintendo to go through with this pointless extra layer of an app to do all this stuff (and only some people will install the app) instead of just using that CIA power to just get the cell phone companies to do all this dastardly stuff and skip the middle man. Well there`s government bureaucracy for you...

    The crowds of people playing this are insane. I've hit level 15 casually (even though I spent $100 on pokecoins) but unlike Ingress this game has no built in hard caps or burnouts to stop players from playing literally day and night which is exactly what many players are doing around.

    I don't see the large number of casual players playing this lasting. Once the newness of the "Ingress" portion of the game wears off people will quit it the same that they quit Ingress...unless they make some major changes to the game and add interesting things to do. Fighting at Gyms is boring as shit. It's like Ingress + Farmville with some Anime bullshit thrown in for the Asian and Yellow fever crowd.

    He was last seen at a Trump rally. What happened after that is anyone's guess, though rumor on the street is it involved the Hillary Clinton, the Illuminati, a midget, a parrot, and a twinkie. Just connect the dots man!

    A couple weeks back I had the same thought RE: whither RRP? Even the hardest of hardcore true believers must get tired of having 100% of their posts laughed at. As such, I imagine RRP has gone to a more favorable forum and is now in casual lurker mode here are EN.com.

    Biv- I don't see RRP being a fan of either of the major candidates, though I bet he'd go Trump if put to the test.

    Killer, I don't think she is implying that people can show Obama phones and say give me a job. I think she is implying that the hours people spend doing this can be spent on something more constructive.

    I personally wear the "not playing" badge with pride (though I wear the not on FB badge with pride). Except for this time, I don't mention it unless someone asks me.

    This area reserved for saying mean things about players of the game. I had some typed out already, but I removed them for fear of starting a crap slinging fight.

    no, i don't think she's implying that you can just show up after 5 min and say 'hi i'd like a job please gimmie'

    however she is implying that most pokemon players are unemployed freeloaders who are taxing thesystem, which is just a bullshit stereotype

    and it's just so pathetic people ripping onthis game.

    sure just about anything is more constructive than a mobile game.

    but this game gets you outside and walking(hopefully not driving). meanwhile for the last 4-5 years the number 1 game was about crushing imaginary candies while sitting on your couch, and now one said jack shit about it. where's the \oh man i wish insteadof bying 5 donunt candies you'd go buy some stocks with that money! comment

    where's the wow instead of swiping left on that purple thing you wen down to the job office and got a job comment?

    Killer, only a fool would take offense where none was intended. You basically took one little sentence and made up a bunch of assumptions. Are you an avid keyboard warrior on Facebook as well?

    I'm not taking back anything that I said and I won't bother to explain. Take it for what it is..... strangers on the internet are just a bunch of 1's and 0's (as Nebu once said).

    I don't care what people do with their time. Do what you will. But when you ask me what I do, I will wear that badge proudly.

    I have been bumped into by people playing and not watching where they are going. I have side stepped people and tripped people that have been playing (I made it look like an accident). My daughter has also been stepped on.

    I can't say I am proud that I don't play, more of pride that I can avoid the hive mind mentality. Maybe in some way I am a hipster, though I don't follow any thing else that would be hipster like. I am okay with you calling me a hipster, because your opinion really doesn't matter at the end of the day. Hipsters can be in their late 40s, right? I don't think there is an age limit.

    To continue with your line of thinking, Nebu is a hipster, as he refuses to use LOL.

    Yes killer, not sure what circles you hang out in, but yes friends and professionals I work with have made comments (I think the term you used is jack shit) about that candy game. I know some one who's wife has spent over 200 on Candy Crush and got a lot of Crap for it. King itself is a crappy company that tried to trade mark Candy. Not sure where you have been, but plenty "jack shit" has been said about that game.

    Stock market? Really? Too much of a risk, there are more reliable methods for investing, unless you are young and can play fast and loose with your money. Then you might as well go to Vegas or buy lottery tickets.

    All sorts of people playing this game. I saw a guy playing in his lambo the other night. I guarantee he had a job. I've seen a dozen Asians playing in their Mercedes/Porches etc while driving. I was talking to a doctor and his wife in a coffee shop yesterday who was about 60 and interested in playing it. He had no idea what a Pokemon was (neither do I ) but he wanted something to get him out and exercising to occupy his mind.

    This is the primary reason I play, I was walking around at 2AM last night just watching the crowds of people playing while I played unlike Ingress I don't see myself driving around for this game. It's for exercise and physical activity only. If you're going to play it in your car short of commutes to wherever your already going I just dont see the point.

    I'll be the first to admit that I was the one of the first to begin name calling over this game until I tried it. I still think the whole concept is childish and boring....but it is SOMETHING active to do and I'll take doing that and some minor math and such over sitting down at a computer doing something equally mindless for entertainment.
