    New Mobile pokemon game, will update with details as they are revealed on the live stream. You can catch Pokemon in the "real world" and battle and trade with other people with the game.
    • 2016 Release.
    • Mobile (iOS and Android) "real life" Pokémon collecting, battling and trading.
    • Takes inspiration from the mobile game Ingress.
    • Collaboration with Niantic, Nintendo and The Pokemon Company.
    • Trade and battle Pokemon with other mobile users.
    • Go to places in the real world and catch Pokemon. Example given is "Imagine a Squirtle hiding near the water front in San Francisco"
    • Changing up the series instead of completely holding to the conventions of the series.
    • "Pokemon Go Plus" - a Bluetooth enabled wristband that uses a led light and vibration function to notify the wearer of things going on in the game. Such as a nearby Pikachu in the real world.
    • Has a button in the center to throw a Pokemon ball.
    • No screen. Just a simple device for being notified if a Pokemon is nearby.
    • Pokemon Go Plus is not needed to play the game. Just an extra peripheral.
    Yupp. This is life now. I will battle the shit out of every 6-year-old with this on their phone/tablet.

    New info and pics

    http://nianticlabs.com/blog/pokemon-go-first-look/

    We’re thrilled to provide a peek into Pokémon GO.Pokémon GO represents the next generation of Niantic’s “Real World Gaming” platform. This platform combines mobile location technology and augmented reality to create a unique game experience that motivates players to go outside and explore the world around them.
    Players will explore their surroundings to find and catch wild Pokémon. Certain wild Pokémon only appear in their native environments; for example, Water-type Pokémon may only appear near lakes and oceans.

    Players will walk to hatch previously-acquired eggs that might reveal new Pokémon. Eggs and other special items such as Poké Balls can be acquired at PokéStops - located at interesting places such as public art installations, historical markers, museums and monuments.
    Yes, there will be battles. Players will be encouraged to join one of three teams in order to compete over the ownership and prestige of Gyms. They will do this by placing their captured Pokémon in a friendly Gym or by battling with an opponent’s Pokémon in another team’s Gym. Gyms - just like PokéStops - are also found at real world locations.
    As previously shared with you here, an early user field test will soon begin in Japan while the game is still in active development. Features, available languages, design and overall appearance are not final.
    We’re excited to reveal more in the days to come.
    — The Pokémon GO Development Team



    and here's some gameplay footage from sxsw



    Sounds like battling will be a part of the game, but it will be as set "Gym" locations. Odd. Well, we'll see. I still wanna play the fuck outta this.

    We'll see if I get anything on the way to work or my gfs house tomorrow.

    My mate managed to get this on android and it told him to go below a specific statue that's on top of a random building in some shithole near where he is in Glasgow. It's not even a well known statue, you barely even notice it if you walk past. These cunts have done their research. Mental.

    Did he change his country in the app store or something? That's something i've heard that people are doing, which is putting a strain on the servers elsewhere.

    Took a look around here at work and there are no pokemon here, damnit. I may have also walked around the parking lot a bit looking for some, but there was nothing there either. The GPS mapping is insane, though. The building I work in is secluded off a main road and has a bunch of small roads leading to our other buildings and the whole thing is mapped out nicely. I'm gonna take some time later tonight to see if I can find a Gym set up in my city.

    Also, for all my foreign brothers:

    Only NZ, AUS, and US so far, but I think it'll be fully rolled out in major countries within a few days.

    Walked around for 20minutes to catch a bastard nidoran in my neighborhood then I come home and my fiancée told me she'd just caught one in the living room. Hers was stronger.

    Thanks

    Can I challenge other people around me to fights? And do I win their phone if I beat them?

    I saw a person who had to be using the app today, and it seems like a no brainer for it to tell you other people are playing around you for that very purpose but I dunno if it does.

    I saw that on Wednesday but part of me doesn't want to install the apk and keep it "official".

    I can't "take it to the man" Beebs. I can't do it.

    NO Reech. You're not allowed this or any game until you've finished Planet Coaster. This is the rules.

    Dropped my missus at work this morning and realized that there are 2 pokespots right next to her job and 5 (!!!) gyms within 150 ft of the place. Fucking JACKPOT. I stayed in the parking lot after dropping her off and caught 2 seals, an eevee, and a nidoran within 2 minutes.

    My university is swarming with spots. I am going for a walk later. Also my neighborhood has several spots as well. This will be fun for a while.

    I gave this a try and found a park that was loaded with Pokespots. Found a bunch of Pokemon and managed to take control of a gym there.

    They need to work on the server issues. They should have know that tons of people would want this app and want to play.

    What I have so far:


    I decided I'd rather save up to evolve rather than leveling them now.

    So Pokemon pop up when you're out and about? Is that not a bit annoying? Can you save a battle for later if you come across something?

    damn son!! That's good shit. Now that it's the weekend, I'm gonna really dig into this. Went for a nice 2-mile walk after dinner and finally hit level 5.

    No, you basically walk about with the app open and it lets you know what's near. You initiate contact, but the Pokemon don't stick around so you either catch them then or they're gone.

    I think that's only partly true. I saw an Evee pulling into work at a stop sign yesterday and initiated contact but didn't want to try to catch it while driving so I waited until I parked and caught it. That was only maybe 100ft or so away.

    I probably missed out on some because I was already in an encounter though.

    The church near my house is a pokestop so I went over there after work and there was another guy driving around the parking lot trying to get it so it would read him as close enough to activate it. I rolled down my window and was like you too huh? He was like yeah and held up his phone, and then I told him I thought you probably had to be in front of the church so I drove up there, and got an egg. Now I have 3 but only 2 incubators.

    Why is this shit in KM anyway? Where's the MURICA setting?

    All the gyms near me are blue or yellow and they're too high level for me to take on now, but their time will come.

    You go to pokestops to get pokeballs, eggs, incubators (for the eggs to hatch them), and incense (to attract them)

    There's also other stuff like great balls and super potions when you're a higher level.

    There's also gyms around which are represented by 3 colors you choose from when you reach level 5.

    6 trainers with 6 pokemon of the same color can hold a gym. Or you can beat them and take it for yourself. Obviously easier to hold with more people.

    You get shield power every day for holding each gym which gives you stardust (used for leveling the pokemon) and pokecoins which you can use to buy shit in the shop instead of spending real money.

    You get 3 of x Candy when you catch x Pokemon and 1 when you transfer duplicates back to Professor Willow.

    It takes a significant amount of candy to evolve a pokemon so you need a bunch of dupes. I currently have 22 Rattatta candy and I need 25 to evolve it to a Raticate.

    If you don't want to have to wave your phone around (and possibly look dumb) when in an encounter there's an AR switch in the top right which changes the battlefield to a generic background.

    Or did you just mean you don't know why anyone does anything other than just catch pokemon?

    Those Pokemon defend the gyms. If you want to claim a gym, you have to fight those Pokemon. If you win, then you pick one of your Pokemon to defend your gym.

    I thought the gyms are defended by six Pokemon from the team, though. So are you fighting your own teammate if your team runs that gym to show your dick is the biggest to everyone?

    My neighborhood is just a sea of kids (and me) walking up and down the block, burning pokemon incense and trying to lure a big one to our street.

    This is the best thing in the history of things that have been the best at being things.

    Six pokemon from Six different trainers.

    I went to my college campus with my friend because we had nothing better to do and we walked around for about an hour and a half and I scored pretty big.

    There was a red gym but I didn't feel like I had anything powerful enough to add to help us hold it.

    Caught this as I was leaving the parking lot though.


    I haven't sold all my dupes and seen what I can evolve yet but I caught so many pidgeys and rattata's I'm pretty confident I'll have a pideot and raticate.

    There are pokestops all over campus so I have 50 pokeballs still. Best place I've found in my area for hunting.

    Hatched the first egg I got and it was a fucking caterpie. :angry:

    After walking 2km I was hoping for a Geodude at least.

    So my realization you have to flick the picture on PokeStop places (including my favorite on my corner, Large Pizza Mural) to get stuff is going to be a real game changer for me, I think.

    Haha, I was so confused at first too. Now I have a shit ton of supplies form poke stops. You can go back every 10 mins or so & I'm waiting for my brakes to be done and there's a stop right in the parking lot. I just keep heading out there every bit to grab more pokeballs.

    Almost 10 KM of walking today. Not too shabby. Caught a shit ton of Pokemon and hit up loads of spots. There's a library near me that's has 9 spots on its grounds.

    Nope. Although I need to try driving slow and shaking my phone to simulate walking. I'm not exercising for this game anymore. I walked two fucking kms and all I got was a motherfucking Pidgey.

    My gf has something wrong with her car where if it's in drive it moves about 5mph without you pushing on the gas at all. Turned out to be perfect for cruising around the empty school parking lot.

    Servers went down a few times but I hatched a geodude and a bellsprout. Evolved the bellsprout into a weepinbell.

    She only downloaded it because she found out if you kept walking away from the original 3 starters you could pick pikachu instead.

    I got an egg and it hatched into a totally fucking badass Magikarp.

    I caught a Golbat and a Pidgeotto. That was neat.

    Picked my team:

    I drove my car in the lake while looking for pokethings and caught two of those orange fish ones. I think the ends justifies the means.

    What's the deal with this game? Seems like it's the new phenomenon

    Are you familiar with things like geocaching or Munzee type games? It's basically that but with a hugely popular IP thrown on top. You wander around, find a location and instead of filling out a log book/adding a trinket to a hidden cache/scanning a QR code, you swipe your finger on your phone and catch Pokemon.

    That's cool. I'm familiar with geocaching but I've never done it. I'm gonna download this and give it a shot. Seems to be doing my Nintendo stock a world of good.

    Update: I downloaded it and caught a Pokemon in my room. Good thing Bulbasaur was hanging out next to my closet.

    all the starter pokemon are there wherever you start the app, since you need to pick one as your starter right away.

    I've been geocaching for fourteen years and have found thousands of them all over the country. You would find more satisfaction doing that than Pokemon. But the great thing about geocaching is that you can do it along with this Pokemon thing, and kayaking, vacationing, hiking, or just screwing around. I love it.

    Had a few hours to kill before dinner tonight so me and my gf went up and down the main street in town which had like 10 pokestops and 2 lures next door to each other.

    Caught a metric ton of Dodou and was able to get a Dodrio.

    I fucked up when it came to evolving my Beedrill and my Butterfree from the Metapod will also be low level but oh well I already have a Pinsir and a Venomoth, I'm not trying to be Bug Catcher Bert.

    Bert = Blood? All this talk of "my gf" is disturbing.


    One of my former work colleagues picked up a 1200 Dragonite. No idea what that means but 1200 CP is nearly 8x more than my current best.

    So I should just say "I" even if I wasn't alone? I would say me and my friends if I was with my friends.

    I haven't said "missus" or "better half" at least.

    We spend a lot of time together.

    Going back to the college campus tomorrow to do some hunting with my friend.

    I bet there will be other groups of people there too. Hopefully with some lures.

    1200 cp means they're probably like level 14 or 15. CP of the pokemon increases as your level increases.

    If you run away from that battle 3 times, then you can get a Pikachu as a starter. Fun fact.
