    Would be great if some super rare one is on Shaun Hill's couch.

    Had to install it for nostalgic purposes and because I do a whole lot of walking to/from the office so I figure I can do some damage. Turns out there's a gym a few hundred yards from my house, and it's surrounded by a tight cluster of PokeStops right along the route we usually take to walk the dog.

    I'm just pissed that I can't play this stupid game on my flight right now.

    so fucking brilliant of Nintendo. and it has already added something like 6 billion to their value.

    catch a whole group of teenage gamers AND capture the nostalgia of the 23-32 year olds who played various pokemon games earlier in life?

    I've been thinking about this a lot. Isn't a pay service the natural answer? $25/mo for all of the same capabilities with no mining, selling, and anonymity. Granted you can make this happen using a wealth of knowledge and tools, but an easy way would be nice that could work across the board.

    I really just hope some girl doesn't meet up for a quick poke & ends up getting raped. I'll probably have to watch the episode on NCIS with the lady about this in a month.

    Do I want to power up these Pokemon first or evolve as soon as I can? I think the former but... maybe not?

    Also, can I only fight other Pokemon at a gym? When do I use a Pokemon to beat another one into submission so I can lock it in its prison for eternity??

    If you have enough candy to evolve you get 500XP for each evolution and a vast amount more power added as well.

    I save my stardust for fully evolved Pokemon.

    Also might have spent an hour PokeWardriving (driving, stopping, catching... Don't PGo and drive) on the way home. Stopped at about 10 Pokestops and picked up a bunch of balls/Pokemon.

    Unfortunately we're kinda in the boonies, so there's really only one Pokestop in walking distance.

    Also found my first Pokestop behind barbed wire, lol. Wasn't crazy enough to venture in.

    Stopped for a quick dinner tonight before heading into work. Sat by a window and watched adolescents and teenagers run rampant around the parking lot and busy driveways with their heads buried in their phones obvlibious to the drivers all around them. Sadly, it won't be long. Somebody's getting run over soon, there's no way around it.
