Here are some tips to help those new to the game as well.

So now that Pokemon Go is pretty much out for most of us, anyone playing?

I started and caught some around my house.

Charmander
Venonat
Weedle x2

stuck at this for 12 hours.

When I was trying to get in early (via new Zealand app store )

I was able to load up game on iPad but it kept failing to get a GPS signal so I kept turning location services on and off to get it to work in bursts, turns out there is/was a Koffing literally across the street from my house, but every time I got close the GPS error went bonkers, and now I can't even log in today from my phone.

If someone got that Koffing gonna be pissed.

Apparently someone got hit with a train playing this. Not sure how true it is but the guy that told me is pretty correct on stuff. Which again I can see this happening. It is bad enough people today are so stupid with their selfies. I can imagine people walking off of cliffs or into roads looking for Pokemon. A buddy said he wouldn't be surprised if someone drowns looking for water type.

I got a Rattata today. Sucks cause there was a Gloom and a Bulbasaur close but they never popped up.

Dang there is a Haunter close by!

Pikachu can be chosen from the starters, just walk away from the 3 you are given and come back.


When someone controls a gym right by your house and you take it back


It'll be great to walk down the beach and catch a ton of water Pokemon.

I had the game open while driving to work today. Found a bunch of Pokemon but didn't have time to stop off and catch them. Hopefully I can get a few of those when I am heading home today lol.... I can see this causing wrecks and injuries to people not paying attention though

Works great if you have someone to drive for you, you don't even have to slow down and capture them along the way.

I imagine at some point they will change the functionality of the game, so you don't have to constantly have it open. Maybe send a notification or something, because it's starting to get kinda out of hand.

Pokemon Go’s unexpected side effect: injuries

Yikes.

lol see I knew it was a matter of time. I'm surprised more hasn't happened during the beta unless people just didn't report it.

And man that would be a great Forensic Files episode.

Quick question,

Just how prolific are these supposed to be? I live on an acre and a half piece of property and my son and I walked every inch of our property and down to the end of our street and back, along with inside our house and absolutely nothing turned up. Are actually finding these supposed to be on the rare side? I just figured we'd find them in all kinds of places. My son is 5 years old and the experience wasn't exactly thrilling to him considering we didn't find a single one. Also I can verify that my phone's GPS signal was being detected. In the morning we're going to drive up to where some hiking trails are and walk around to see if we have better luck.

I live out in small town in the sticks and they are come and go. You have incense in your items and that last for 30 minutes and helps to draw them out.
Try using one of those or take a drive. If you still don't find anything maybe try going into town. I know in the bigger city that is about 45 minutes away people are finding like tons of them.
I mean Scythers and other big ones.

I have to use wifi right now since my good cell is down and so far I have only been able to get crappy ones around the house. If you have wifi at the house try connecting to that and walk around the house. Also, I had turned off the camera and more seemed to appear for me. Although not sure if that makes a difference.

Could be an issue with the game. From Forbes:

Quote:
...The list of things that have gone wrong with the launch goes on and on. Players unable to login; players in the US unable to download the game to begin with; game crashes; maps bereft of any and all Pokémon, gyms, etc. Everything from sign-in issues to overwhelmed servers have plagued the game’s launch...
Haven't been able to sign in at all for the past 24 hours.
