    Hold your finger down when youve got the pokeball ready and there will be a colored circle (green/orange/red) that shrinks in size. When it's large, throw the pokeball and aim right for the pokemon's head.
    you throw when it's big? i thought it was when the inside circle was at its smallest? according to the help center that the app itself directly links to you have the best chance of capturing when the target circle is at its smalleat diameter.

    I always throw when it's large and I've down pretty well. Maybe cause it hits when it's smaller

    The circle changes size? I thought it was just a target circle to indicate the bonus spot for extra points for a nice/great/excellent throw?

    Just had my first run in with a cop over this. It was inevitable. It was still daylight out and I was run off by a blue light special who told me "the park is closed after dark". Yeah and right up until now that wasn't an enforced law. The gate doesnt even get locked at night. I mean somewhere in the town charter I'm sure there is a 200 year old law banning people named "Kevin" from owning a cheese sandwhich but that doesn't get enforced either.

    This was one thing when I was a kid. But I'm in my 30s and still getting harassed for trying to play a cell phone game while sitting in a parked car in a parking lot that is generally full until dark. And one I've been at during the night several times and never had one word said to me.

    My guess, the locals have bought in to a facebook clickbait story about Pokemon Go being a secret recruitment device for ISIS.

    I actually started up Ingress(the precursor to pokemon) today. When traveling around when you see clusters of white dots (exotic matter),that's a good indicator there are Pokemon there. I like Ingress. I've never been a Pokemon guy, but the collecting bug on it has its claws in me.

    Never played a geo game, and this week I've tried 3. Wish I'd gotten in on Parallel Kingdoms when it was active. It's cool to see all of the stuff people did on there.

    One of my friends works for EMS and they had to call the cops on a ton of people. Said there was 21 people in their parking between 9 cars blocking pretty much everything in the building. They refused to leave so they had to get the police involved.

    It's only a matter of time before something happens with this game before a mob comes after it.

    I had a banner day today. I caught a Pikachu, captured four gyms (though I lost one before I got home), and moved up two levels. The server problems are extremely frustrating though. The app lost connectivity while I was attempting to take a fifth gym and there was a Charmeleon on the nearby screen that I lost when I had to restart at one point. I'm kind of excited for this weekend, as it's my town's annual festival. It's the busiest day of the year for my tiny corner of the world, and the heart of the festival is a park that has two gyms. I'm going to try to level my strongest fighters up as much as I can tomorrow in preparation for Saturday.

    It is so hard to maintain gyms around here without fellow yellow team members. Everyone is fucking red or blue.

    That because anyone who picked yellow is stupid. To be fair, anyone who picked blue is stupid too.

    Got back from a show tonight and was walking from the train when a couple of terribly drunk guys were going on about how, "Pokemon is bringing everyone together, man, it's beautiful."

    Just caught a 'Hypno'. Does that mean anything? I'm almost at level 5. So will eventually get to go to a gym. If it's shit, I'm deleting the app.

    I caught an Aerodactyl.

    But his stats are shit. CP61

    How am I supposed to level him up with only 2 Aerodactyl Candy?

    And the only way to get Candy is to get more Aerodactyls? I hate how that is the only way in getting Candy to level up/evolve.

    Are there any tips to getting higher level Pokemons? Most of my shits are lower than 100CP.

    Same goes with my Dratini... I want to evolve him but I have no candy. I need to catch 40 fucking Dratinis to evolve the FUCK to a Dragonite???

    Hypno is CP154, which is the highest CP I have at the moment. What does any of this mean?

    it means he is shit, but what it actually means in terms of gameplay I don't know

    because once you go into a gym all of the gimps have pokemon cunts with CP of like 800+

    but all of my pokemon have the same CP or less than your Hypno so fuck me

    they need to add a lot of shit. just catching pokemon and battling at gyms will get old

    like trading, battling friends, maybe seeing other people walking around on the GPS, obviously more pokemon, more strategically placed locations

    I shouldn't be able to find a Dratini in the middle of a city... it should be by water only IMO

    but it is what it is

    I really shouldn't have picked Charmander.

    Millions of Bulbasaurs around me, a bunch of Squirtles, but I haven't run into a single Charmander.

    I have never ran into either of the 3 in the wild.

    Oh my god... I walked around the city on my lunch break and it was easier to find someone NOT playing Pokemon Go than playing.

    Literally people of all ages were outside walking around downtown Charlotte in 90+ degree weather catching Pokemon. All of the Poke Stops had the hearts around it (which I assume is the Lure) and people were just sitting there.

    I must have caught like 30 Zubats... a 400CP Pinsir, and a couple other random shits.

    Are Zubats so fucking common at Lure Poke Stops? I wish other more random shit would appear. I was hoping for a Growlithe or whatever.

    But anyway, my point is this Pokemon Go fad is insane that people who work in corporate (such as myself, but I am an immature fuck) are all playing this in the masses.

    I was walking around, and some little kid asks me if I am playing Pokemon Go. I embarassingly say yes... to which he points and says "there is an Articuno over there." I walk over and obviously found nothing. Was he taking a piss? Articuno isn't even in the game right?

    he didn't even say it in a dickish manner

    he literally in an innocent way said: "there is an articuno over there"

    I had to dig deep to even remember which one was Articuno

    little cunt, he shouldn't even know who Articuno is. The original 151 Pokemon are before his time

    Your level in the game directly influences the cp strength of the pokemon you catch. I'm at 14 and I regularly catch oddishes at +300 and Pidgeys at +200. And it makes an exponential amount of difference when evolving. I evolved a pokemon with only one more cp point than the previous one I evolved of the same type. Yet the evolved version was over 30 cp points higher. So it really matters. Just keep leveling up by catching every last one you can.

    rancid's post is making me think about changing mystrategy. I have been looking for different species and only occasionally picking up the same ones. Now I am going to make the world empty of pidgeon and rat pokemon.

    so basically no point in using your Stardust/powering Pokemon until you are a high level? since thats when you catch level 300-400+CP pokemon anyway? what is a good level to start powering pokes?

    Yeah you need to catch all you can and level up as fast as possible. Once you get to level 12 you will really start to see stronger pokemon. Also you get these things called "great balls" that are supposedly better at catching things.

    Did the pidgey + lucky egg combo and evolved about 15 pidgeys. Almost level 15!

    pidgeys only take 12 candies to evolve and give you 500xp each time. If you use a lucky egg to double xp, you can get 1000xp points per pidgey. So you just catch a metric fuck ton of pidgeys and then do it all at once. Took me up a few levels. I got all the pidgeys throughout the week and a bunch today at the park as people threw down lures.

    How long do you need to hold a gym before you can earn stuff off it?

    Never played a geo game, and this week I've tried 3. Wish I'd gotten in on Parallel Kingdoms when it was active. It's cool to see all of the stuff people did on there.

    It happens right away.

    Go to the shop and in the top right corner you can get your stuff.

    You can only get stuff once every 21 hours, so take more gyms or stick your guys into ones with open slots.

    It now won't let me access any Pokestops or gyms at all. Piece of shit.

    Also, what happens if you try to battle a gym and someone else is in the middle of doing it?

    I wonder if during the next few years, to keep things fresh, they release each generation of Pokemon every year or so. Instead of old Pokemon disappearing, however, they are integrated. That would be a shitload of Pokemon.

    There's just so much potential there with this game, my only concern is that surely they'd have to hold things back to prevent this from overshadowing the main series on the Nintendo handhelds.

    Like you said, if they add new generations every few years, maybe add trading, battles, etc, you wouldn't be far off from completely replacing the main series.

    For all my moaning, they seem to have finally sorted the server. It still crashes occasionally but the app's loading up almost every time and all the stops and gyms seem to be working fine.

    I got my Magmar up to 1100+ CP and now it says I am too low of a trainer level (I am 16) to power it anymore

    what level do you have to be to level it past that?

    I'm wondering if they'll bring in the mission system from Ingress.

    I'm calling bullshit. You don't need to break into a fucking house to catch a Pokemon, that's not how it works. They were probably breaking in for the usual reasons and then blamed PGO.

    The police should not have to tell people to not go onto private property and to pay attention to your surroundings, etc. Yet they are having to do so. You don't need to go into people's yards or anything to get the pokemon. That is what is killing me right now is the people that are not using their fucking heads.

    Getting really fucking tired of the game going down. Found a spot with 15 stops and the game crashes for the third time today. Stop opening it up to other countries if the US still can't handle it.

    Two of my friends who work in car insurance have seen a decent number of pokemon go related car accidents lately...

    The other night while I was riding from stop to stop with a soup van to feed some of the homeless in the city, we could even see police men in their cars playing it on their phones (one while driving, the others as passengers)...

    It's a bit nuts hey...

    Watched a video yesterday where a Guy playing Pokemon behind the wheel crashes into a parked police car. Tough luck.

    It's dangerous as hell playing this game while driving. It is so much worse than texting while driving. You are literally playing a game while driving but because it's not constant buttons people don't perceive it as much. Then people who have their camera thing on will angle themselves in weird ways while driving and swiping to catch the Poke.

    Police should have more cops on bikes that do this:



    It would be a massive money maker if they issued fines and would put a lot of people off using their phones whilst driving.

    This is getting better and better:
    http://www.expressen.se/nyheter/skul...t-genom-laret/

    It's in Swedish but you'll understand from the video and pics. Some moron chasing Pokemons tried to jump over the fence to the Stockholm Stadium and impaled himself doing so. The fence (it's the kind of fence you really shouldn't try to jump or climb) penetrated his thigh and left him hanging there. Ouch. No Pokemon for you lad.

    As of right now still at the gym. Someone from my team left higher cp pokemon last night so I didn't have the top pokemon but we still have the gym. the gym is in my neighborhood. some of them change a lot and some of them do not. My snorlax has not been returned yet. The gyms here on campus change all the time though.

    I don't even try to hold two gyms for the extra stuff. It's impossible to get to another before the first is taken.

    So, why are these people acting like lobotomised lemmings?

    A "porygon" appears in Sydney Australia..



    And a "Vaporeon" pops up in Central Park, NY..



    Is this some kind of leftover programme from Project MKUltra or something?

    So, I don't know much about this aside from what I heard on the MMA Hour, I know everyone can catch the same "figure". But I'm just wondering, what if they limited the amount of Pokemons that were available in the same place, would we have riots and people killing each other over them?

    yeah I probably wouldn't even bother with the Vaporean depending on the CP/level (obviously I would catch it but I wouldn't fuss if I found one)

    the Porygon I would definitely try to catch though

    A player claims to be the first in the UK to catch all 143 (so which ones are missing?)

    So there are 142 currently available to everyone. There is one exclusive to the US which he says he hatched. Interesting. There is also one exclusive to Europe, Asia, and Australia/New Zealand. Then there are legendary ones that are not out in the wild and will be part of the game later. Interesting he was able to hatch the US one. I wonder if the same can happen to the others. I wonder if we could hatch the ones not available here.

    I currently have 77.

    I got one with a lure. I finally took a gym today... Only to lose it five minutes later. Hard to compete when I finally got a 500+ pokemon.

    My wife and I are on team mystic. My kids are team valor. Yesterday we were out catching pokemon. My wife and I decided to take a gym. My kids are a little behind us and don't have anything real strong yet. We take the gym and before we could put our pokemon in it our kids put pokemon in the gym and made us take it again. Little punks.

    I had 3 pokemon in gyms at one point this morning but two are back already. The one that is still out there is at a pretty isolated gym actually so I expect it to be there a while.

    How is everyone doing? I am up to 104 in my pokedex. I do go days here and there where I am not really playing though. We have had some fun as family going out and catching pokemon here and there. School started up though and that is taking a lot of our time up. Kids have homework and so do I.

    I have yet to catch enough magicarp to evolve one. My wife and I are racing to see who can evolve it first. I think she has a slight lead in candy.

    Honestly only reason I try to get in a gym or take a gym is for coins so I can buy egg incubators without actually spending money on this game because honestly I just want to get all the pokemon and not worried about the cp and all that of the ones I have.

    Pretty much the same, my kids had great fun with it over the summer, picked up a Mr Mime on the last day which was one of the highlights of the summer for my big lad.

    I have no idea what to do beyond collecting them. So that's what I do when I know I am walking somewhere.
