This game is an unplayable POS.

shut-ins (Image removed from quote.)

Yesterday, after I purposely went out for a long walk to hunt Pokemon, the game froze on me probably 100 times in a couple hours. I spent more time closing and restarting the app than I did playing. There were at least a dozen instances, probably closer to 20 or 25, when the game froze right after I had caught a Pokemon. The screen just froze with the pokeball sitting there. Restarted the app, and guess what? No Pokemon. If you add up all the pokeballs I wasted on those encounters, it's probably over 100. Are they going to reimburse me 500 coins to buy those back? Probably not, though I may try to request it. I had probably a dozen pokestops fail to give me anything. Just spun the icon and got "Try again later."

Also got a couple "Your item bag is full." Of course they sell you a larger bag for real money. Of course they set an item limit that anyone who doesn't battle constantly is going to hit really quickly. Of course the game doesn't default to giving you pokeballs, which don't count towards the limit, if you can't carry any more potions and shit.

The curve mechanic is stupid as fuck. There are a large percentage of phone screens, mine included, that can't deal very well with the input sensitivity that determines whether the ball goes straight or veers off at the last second like some trolling telepath pushed it away. Good fucking luck if you're using a screen protector. Absolutely no one would mourn the curve mechanic if they removed it. It's very obviously there to make you miss more.

You have Pokemon that aren't even that strong escape multiple times even if you're using a raspberry and upgraded pokeball.

Then they have the balls to sell you 20 for a dollar. This when a shitty Pikachu can easily make you go through 20+ with multiple escapes. Should be 100 for a dollar at a minimum.

I'm probably done in a couple days if they don't at least fix the freezing and the pokestop errors. Simple fix: if the game freezes, you either get the Pokemon, or you get every item you used in the encounter back as though there had been no encounter.

As it is, the whole thing is set up in an incredibly mean-spirited way to get you to buy shit for real money at what are frankly pretty ridiculous prices.

For the record this is false. Or at least wildly inaccurate.

https://gist.github.com/arirubinstein/fd5453537436a8757266f908c3e41538

Essentially Pokemon GO is using an out of date API that causes Google to lie and say the app has "full access" when really all it has is your email and OpenID/OAuth access. Surprise surprise, everyone freaked out about nothing before all the facts came to light.

Only virgins read github. Try explaining this to Dufus. Not happening.

My desk is right next to two Pokestops which means free items and +100 XP every five minutes lol:

Went out to the Santa Monica pier last night, and the shit was a fucking party. That place is a Pokemon safari. Probably 2/3rds of the people on the pier were playing. Found a Dratini and a Dragonair. Tons of Magikarp too. I might actually be able to get the 400 Magikarp candies if I farm for a couple hours.

I'm going again tonight with some extra batteries.

We went to the big park downtown last night and there were lures popping off everywhere and pretty much every second person was playing the game.

And this is in Canada where the game hasn't even officially launched yet. This might be the most "pirated" game of all time.

Javier Soch and Seth Ortega went to downtown Fullerton on Tuesday hoping to hunt monsters on the new "Pokemon Go” smartphone game.

Instead, the Marine Corps veterans helped police in the Orange County city catch a man who was bothering children at a playground. Investigators later learned the man, identified as Jacob Kells, was wanted for attempted murder by authorities in Monterey County.

“It’s not what we were expecting our day to turn out with,” said Ortega, who is pursuing his associate’s degree in automotive technology at nearby Fullerton College.

“The game, when it loads up on the screen, says to be cautious of your surroundings. Strongly follow that advice.”

Ortega, 24, and Soch, 26, who are roommates in Placentia, arrived downtown about 9 a.m. and played the smartphone game for an hour.

Soch said the experience has not diminished his enjoyment of the “Pokemon Go” game.

Some of the Pokestops are inside buildings so this doesn't make sense. And again, I'm talking about restricted areas that Street View wouldn't have access too. It's puzzling.

Tried this last night.  Took the dog for a walk and we saw something that ended up being a gym nearby.  As we walked towards it (a church), we saw a car come very slowly around the corner and keep stopping.  There was a dude in there with his phone out right near where the gym marker was.  We go into the church parking lot and a cop car starts coming towards us.  There's a landmark where you can get stuff and he stops right in front of it for a minute, then speeds off.   :lol

Anyway, I really don't "get" this game.  It's more fun watching other people try to find this shit.

Street View has gone inside many buildings, actually. Mostly shops and malls though.

It's possible the people inside the locations you're talking about were big Ingress players though, and they petitioned to Niantic to add portals there or whatever.

The Pokestop thing is really puzzling. How are there Pokestops on military bases and other restricted areas?

Most of it was automated from Google Maps.

They've gotten the locations from a mix of ways it seems:

Quote
Whether it's your local church, an art installation, a public library, or just a big ol' water tower, Pokemon Go has chosen some … interesting locations for its Pokestops and gyms. They're not random, but they're also somewhat scattershot in their placement. One neighborhood could be bursting at the seams with Pokestops and gyms, while another could be a desolate wasteland. So what's the deal? It turns out, a lot of Pokemon Go's designs can be traced back to Google.

While Pokemon Go may be the first time many players have heard of developer Niantic Labs, it's a studio that traces its lineage back to Google (whose parent company is now known as "Alphabet"). Niantic was once part of Google, and its founder and CEO, John Hanke, worked on the technology that powers Google Maps. That tech was used in Niantic's previous game, Ingress. And Ingress, much like a Metapod becoming Butterfree, has evolved - in its own way - to become Pokemon Go.

Much like Pokemon Go, Ingress is a game of geolocation. Players must travel to specific locations to capture portals, which link with other captured sites to form zones controlled by whichever faction holds those points. Hanke and his team chose some of the first portals based on sites with historical or cultural significance, such as The Washington Monument, Big Ben, or longstanding museums.

Other locations were chosen based on geo-tagged photos from Google. For example, you might not have much interest in, or even know about, the world's largest ball of twine (located in Cawker City, Kansas by the way) but the fact that so many tourists take pictures of it and upload those pictures to Google would make it a prime candidate for an Ingress portal.

Many more portals were submitted as suggestions by Ingress players. Hanke recently told Mashable that there are approximately 15 million player-submitted portal locations, 5 million of which have been approved.

Ingress player data has revealed the most popular of these portal locations, and Niantic has turned those into gyms. The less popular (but still active and approved) locations have become Pokestops. "The Pokestops are submitted by users, so obviously they're based on places people go," Hanke said. "We had essentially two and a half years of people going to all the places where they thought they should be able to play Ingress, so it's some pretty remote places."

It can lead to some interesting situations where the landscape has changed over time. I can personally tell you of two stories, each revolving around water towers (look, I live in central Iowa, we don't have a lot of super cool landmarks, okay?).

One nearby Pokestop is assigned to an old water tower that existed during Ingress' launch window, but was torn down by the time Pokemon Go was released. So down the street is a Pokestop pointing me to something that no longer exists.

Meanwhile in Des Moines, a gym is assigned to a water tower stationed outside a nearby mall. That makes sense - the mall is a popular area, and the water tower is an easy-to-see landmark - however, the water tower is surrounded by a tall chain-link fence with barbed wire around the top, and a big "NO TRESPASSING" warning on the gate. Because of this, it's not possible to get close enough to actually interact with the gym.

That is, unless you fool the app by closing it and re-opening it, hoping the GPS signal will think you're on the other side of the fence - a trick I definitely did not do, and do not suggest any central Iowa players reading this try. Unless you are Team Mystic, in which case: we cool.

So if you're wondering why Pokemon Go seems to be telling you to go to church, or the local art installation, odds are that it's actually following in the footsteps of a tourist whose picture is circulating on Google or an Ingress player who suggested it. Maybe they were distracting themselves from a lengthy sermon, maybe it was a good place to meet up with fellow players, or maybe the world has changed since those days, closing off what once was.

I say, make up your own stories for these places. And good luck catching 'em all.

I wish there was more I can do with the game when I'm not out and about. I know the point of the game is to go out and catch Pokemon, but I wish there was a more I can do with the Pokemon after I've caught them. Right now you can only transfer them, power them up, or evolve them. I'd like more things I can tinker with when I'm just sitting at my desk at work.

I also hope there are some "event" style scenarios like maybe a rare Pokemon shows up for a limited time in specific locations. Or a Pokemon trainer pops up randomly and whoever beats him gets a cool reward.

Considering this was in the original trailer (Mewtwo) I'm sure this will be the case.

It'd be cool if they added something like Pokemon-amie. I wouldn't use it, but it'd be something to do when there's no Pokemon around.

I'd like some kind of friends list and social feed that aggregates everyone's journals. It'd be a good incentive if I saw that so-and-so caught an Electabuzz yesterday at X location to go there myself.

I assume it's about 50/50, sometimes the Pokemon move or it isn't the right time of day to catch them, but I do think it's likely that they're tied to an area in a certain way.

Got to level 20 and acquired master balls. They only show up at like 1 out of every 20 pokestops so far, and you only ever get one at a time.

I had a 987 CP Kingler escape from 4 consecutive raspberry-buffed ultra balls ranging between nice and excellent throws. Niantic needs to fix that shit. Flat out unacceptable.

I feel like if you get an excellent throw with an ultra ball, that should be an auto-win against anything but a special event type like Mewtwo.

Hitting it in the circle = Nice!, Excellent!, etc. are just XP bonuses I think

The only thing that increases catch rate is making the inner circle as small as possible.

The fact that they had the balls to put the game out at all in this state is only slightly less astounding than the fact that they had the balls to set up a system where they charge you real-world money for items that don't work a lot of the time. I dropped an incense on my lunch break and couldn't catch a single Pokemon due to the game freezing during every encounter. That's 80 coins right there. A couple dozen pokeballs gone during that same break - that's another couple hundred coins.

There needs to be a petition to get Niantic to make things right with their consumers. Otherwise, a class-action is probably in the cards.
