    Okay since I know many are playing this I thought I'd start a thread.

    Here's me so after only a small amount of time: (halfway through lvl 3)
    [​IMG]

    Here's what I've learned so far about the game:
    1. Catch Everything
      Every pokemon is useful. Even multiples of ones you already have can be "transfered" to the professor for candies for that type of pokemon. Enough candies for that type of pokemon and you can evolve it. Also every catch nets you 100 stardust.
    2. You can't do **** until you hit level 5 basically. If you manage to find an incense item at some point, use it. This gives you 30 minutes of pokemon coming to you. If you dont have a full 30 minutes to play don't waste it. You will catch quite a few pokemon during this time.
    3. Go to pokestops. These are pre-determined locations on your map with a blue box over it. Go there, spin the thing at the location and you get free pokeballs/items.
    4. Once you hit level 5 you are asked to join one of 3 teams. I believe the choices are red/blue/yellow. This team determines who you will be teamed up with to defend gyms, which you will now be able to see on your maps. Go to the gym, and you can drop a pokemon there to defend it for your team. Don't drop your best one there just yet, the gyms are still pretty weak as the game has just started, but also don't drop your weakest one, you do want to win. If your team holds a gym for 24 hours you get a "defense bonus". (I have no idea what this gives you)
    Okay that's pretty much all I know.
    Share what you've learned/what you've caught.

    I saw people running around the building at work playing this today. It's something I would have enjoyed when I was like 8-13, but not now.

    Game is the ****.

    Eston should play it so he walk his fat ass off in the Arizona heat looking for a Pikachu.

    Download it and see

    I heard about this game this morning and didn't think twice about it, but then XO told me you actually get off your ass and seek these fxckers out. That's a totally different concept to me so I tried it and actually enjoyed it.

    My 7 year old tagged along and we explored the neighborhood at 11pm and he REALLY had a good time with it.

    The other cool thing is the gyms near me seem to be in public places like museums and coffee shops, so there's some chance I learn something along the way
