Donald Trump would like to catch 'em all.

But he's busy running for president.

In an interview with the Washington Examiner on Thursday, the Republican nominee said he wishes he could join in the craze over the new smartphone game "Pokemon Go."

"I don't, but people are playing it. No question about it," he said. "I do not. I wish I had time."

What kind of dank meme response do you think Hillary will hit Trump with?

I'm so excited to see it.

Can't believe they made politics great again.

This is the town I work in (and where my ex is from). It's a dumpy town but not to the point where I'd expected there would be a robbery over this:

CP 379 Pikachu escaped from a great ball and then two raspberry-boosted ultra balls. Then fled. This shit is absurd. That's a pretty average CP for where I am level-wise. The escape rate on the 3 starters and Pikachu really needs to be cut. No one is playing the game to track a Charmander for 15 minutes only to see it escape an ultra ball.

Indeed. :lol Seriously, between VC release of the 90s era games and a week old mobile game, the latter sure invoked more nostalgia somehow.

I still have Red, Blue and Yellow. Somehow I never knew there was a Green. It makes sense to me now but for some reason I always thought the original games were only Red and Blue.

Green was Japan only.

The original release was Red and Green. The Japanese Blue was released later in 1996 and was the Crystal/Emerald/Platinum-like "third version" which fixed some bugs, rebalanced things and changed all the Pokemon sprites. The international Red and Blue in 1998 are based on the Japanese Blue.

Sprite comparison here: http://orig04.deviantart.net/3e75/f/2012/296/0/e/pokemon_green___red_blue_comparison_sprite_sheet_by_fimxscootaloo-d5iqjvd.jpg

Hence why the remakes were FireRed and LeafGreen (although I still think they should have renamed it for America.)

Really shitty. I liked seeing a rare Poke in my tracker then hunting it down. The only way you can play the game at the moment is squatting on lures and catching everything you see like an MMO Chinese gold farmer. Lame.

I think I've been getting the 3 steps thing too, but I never used the distance tracker anyways because for some reason my phone refreshes more slowly than everyone else's  :( I don't see new pokemon until a minute or two after they show up for others, coupled with the still shitty servers it makes the game nearly unplayable a lot of the time

You can't actually search for anything anymore. It's all blind luck.

This shit has been going on since Friday. Niantic is a bunch of incompetent fuckwits.

Broken shit is shitty, for sure. But as someone who works in tech I have nothing but sympathy for their engineers and IT people tbh. This is the biggest mobile game of all time, plus they got DDOS'd last Saturday on top of it.

They get a pass from me for now.

I would have dropped this shit like hot garbage a week ago if not for the fact that 90% of my friends are playing it. It's objectively hot garbage at least 50% of the time.

The steps were kinda useless anyways. It's more useful to track their position in the list in order to triangulate their whereabouts.

It's more useful to have both. Especially because the list refresh rate is totally fucked. I had a Charmander stay in my top left corner for an entire mile one time. I did a hard reset of the game, and he wasn't even on the nearby list anymore. Plus trash Pokemon like Rattatas and Mankeys will always just spawn in regardless of their position on the list.

You cannot track Pokemon outside for shit right now. I just go to hotspots where people throw down lures and hang out there if I want to play.

Not you Cats, Andy.

Andy: I get that and totally agree, but a game this size should really have some line of communication with its audience (ie a community manager). Acknowledging issues and keeping people in the loop goes a long long way. This isn't a tiny start up, and this isn't a tiny independent mobile game.
