I envy all of these people that can capture Pokemon in their houses. My house is sort of out in the boonies so I can't really get anything XD

If Gen 3 and 4 pokemon like Gardevoir and Lopunny are found in Strip clubs, I will laugh even harder then Arceus being found in churches, because its as if the Pokemon Company realizes how sexualized those two are on the internet.

[up][up][up]I can't seem to get a GPS signal and I'm in a rather populated college town (well, "populated" for the current summer anyway). It really bugs me since the Map My Walk app can pin point me with pretty good accuracy as long as I'm not deep inside some building.

Hopefully Blaziken, Infernape, and Emboar are found at fire stations.

So I managed to catch a Pikachu while walking my dogs, and an Eevee in my house. Oh, and I evolved a Pidgey.

So, how do you get candies again?

You either buy them or capture multiple of the same Pokemon.

How do you buy candies? I don't see an option for them in the shop.

The only microtransactions there are deal with the coins, which are used to buy other items. Candy's not one of them, I think.

It probably be a pain for them to sell candies since each line has a different one.

Ha! I was looking at the game's map for my apartment area and there seems to be a gym right on top of the apartment complex's main office building. [lol]

Edit: Wait, no. It's actually on the nearby bank.

Wasn't expecting the game to explode like this. Hope Nintendo don't abandon their handhelds altogether in favour of mobile because of this.

Oh please. Go is nice, but it can never hope to compare to a classic handheld title. T Hink of Go as a super interactive Dream World from 5th gen.

Ain't going to happen, they make too much off hardware. Plus they can't design the specs of your phone, unlike their handhelds.

Add in that the server issues have stopped worldwide rollout and what is amounting to dashed faith in it, then you start to see too many issues with the idea.

Actually, I think Niantic's the ones handling the servers. But honestly, when everyone and their mother is trying to play the game I don't think you could have accurately gauged how the servers would handle that kind of traffic.
