Welp, Its out now! Its glitchy and laggy, but an is it still fun. Pokemon Go, an international AR Pokemon experience where you go out and about to catch pokemon like a real trainer!
So, how's everyone experience with it so far? Even with the bugs, I'm hooked to it. Just caught a wild Pidgeot with a huge power level, going to take out some gyms tomorrow.
i can't use it
it doesn't work
this is suffering
I'm still starting out with the bare minimum (so many Rattatas) and the AR doesn't work for me, but otherwise it's great. It's really fun to see what areas in town are gyms and who runs them. I hope the reception is good enough to warrant adding the later gens.

My friend has Eevees in her house.
it is the best house.
I got on finally by signing on with Google; so far have a Charmander with Flamethrower, a Pidgey with Twister, and a Paras with Seed Bomb.
My dog helped me catch an Eevee:
I still can't log in thru the Trainer Club, and j don't want to reset the progress I have by switching to google
Went for a haircut, and there happened to be a Pokestop across the street. Got 3 Pokeballs and caught a Pidgey and Weedle.
I took 3 gyms and found a Dratini. Today was a good day.
I'm without a phone right now but do want this. ;.;
Also, you know your game's doing something right when the CTO of Amazon offers his expertise because the servers went down when he was trying to play...
My dog helps me catch another one!
Just kind of a weird hobby I've developed: taking pictures of my dog in poses that make her look like she's interacting with pokemon. I think I'll use Nerf guns next.

finally did something- though it stinks that some people are far ahead of me simply because i couldn't access the darn game
managed to catch a raticate which is the biggest thing i did today- the rest were just a few venonats and weedles. and an eevee.
i wish there was a better way to get the orbs- having to catch, like, 30 of the same pokemon is annoying.
i can't wait until i hit level 5 and i can start taking gyms.
This game's went viral:
http://squeewentthefangirl.tumblr.com/post/147105405249/thefingerfuckingfemalefury has a few jpegs of worldwide reaction.
http://www.pocket-lint.com/news/138183-can-t-get-pokemon-go-in-your-country-yet-here-s-how-to-download-it-now is pretty self-explanatory.
Which is funny, especially if the players are atheists.
Just took a gym from Blue team. Suck it, you dirty blues!
Apparently, a little girl found a dead body as result of following the map of pokemon go.
She found a ghastly near it, I think.
Once the fourth Gen Gets patched in, if all the people going to Churches find Arceus, I will lol at how clever the programmers are.

Sounds like a really good creepypasta. Did she catch it?
They should have ghastlies spawn in cemeteries.

Supposedly, that's actually a thing.
Well once I get the game I guess I'm taking a trip to Green-Wood Cemetery.
Well one of the first Reddit pictures of the game had a guy in a hospital see a Gastly.
I wish they made the game operate in widescreen.
Link to that article. She caught a Water Pokemon and ended up seeing a dead body near it.
Also, server fixes are coming. The rest of the world won't get it until the issues are resolved.

Pokemon GO made me run for the first time in months.
Thank god server issues are coming. I know someone here has already said it, but it's irksome seeing so many other people able to play the game when you can't even log in
Speaking of which, is there a special reason to use a Pokemon Trainer Club account over a Google one? Is it to carry over beta/other region progress? With the game launching while the account service was already under planned maintenance, then the subsequent mass of people trying to log in, a Google account seems a bit faster to use.
