Well, lately the latest craze is this harmless looking app. In general... In the world of pokemon, there is; Pokémon, trainers, pokeballs (to capture and keep pokemon) and so on. Nevertheless, instead of restricting yourself to a table to play this via "trading card game" (old fashioned?) why not use your AR on your smartphone?

 

      So walk around, use your AR, capture pokemon, meet others, play against them etc...

 

        Not a player pokemon player myself, but it has managed one way to catch my attention...

 

 

 

        Kibitz?

They are updating the game every 2 weeks. I hope we get a trading system :P.

I tried it, but I think there are ways it could be improved. Its kinda boring a bit, to be honest. Also to say, I do not really feel like walking around outdoors. I think are a lot of ways they can make it more interesting, since its the new 'craze' at the moment and since many people have hopped on-boards with the game even though that are not really original Pokemon fans but playing the game just to experience it and see what its like. So I feel to keep those people around, they need to add more components to the game, otherwise it will not be long before another game is released and that will be the new 'craze'. Also, I am on level 2 or 3 I think, but I haven't opened the app in awhile after I've tried it out.

 

I do admit though, that it can be a good way to encourage exercise if the player is very into it. I think that's what had caught my attention in the beginning.

the whole point of the game is to walk around and catch Pokémon, ofcourse you're supposed to be moving around...but there are some improvements needed..it might be just that im using an apk,but the servers need to be fixed and all the games freezes..other than that the game is fine. i do have some friends that have jumpped on the Pokémon band wagon, i my self have been a Pokémon nerd my whole life :3

If you download the application directly from Google Play, it is still an APK-file, just as if you download it from the internet.


Sorry i meant to say, a bad apk*

Yep, I know. Is why I decided to try it out, to see if it would help me to start going outdoors a bit more. But it didn't really hold my attention for too long. I had a couple of problems with it, also.  Like when I walked would around, my avatar would only stay in one place. But I was able to fix that. The other problem was that when I would flick on the real life camera before you are about to capture one, I couldn't see the Pokemon. So I could only stay in the game perspective instead of mines. (All of my location services, GPS, Wi-FI, Mobile Networks, was turned on high accuracy, so I believe it was an issue with the game) I gave it a try though.

What does a "bad" APK-file has to do with the game's servers?

 

Maybe the APK File might have been sloppily put together, so there could be a few issues that are present in the game.

Pokémon GO never got my attention. It didn't implement the real components of the original Pokémon games, which where choose your starter Pokémon and simply go and cath more powerful Pokémons as you advanced through the city in the dream to become a Pokémon tmrainer.

This game on other hand simply took die hard fans like me, disappointed. Expected more from it. I do get the concept of the game, make gamers and unactive people go out and exercise, but where's the fun when 80% of the times I see my brother play, the servers are down. To make it worst, there is no sort of fighting rather than just catching Pokémons which isn't solely Pokémon games' main objective.

Just one word, disappointed. Not going to try this game at all. Just my opinion about this.

Bow down to my dank memes.

Actually, can we get a "Tanktastic Go" app? Drive around in tanks and shoot things? Or would we just be collecting tanks and upgrading them?

i didnt say the server problem and the apk had anything to do with each other did i error?....that 'bad apk' was talking about the needed improvements like a said it might be a bad apk because the game runs poorly. Sorry if i didnt make it clear enough.

Yep, I know. Is why I decided to try it out, to see if it would help me to start going outdoors a bit more. But it didn't really hold my attention for too long. I had a couple of problems with it, also.  Like when I walked would around, my avatar would only stay in one place. But I was able to fix that.

did you try looking around for the Pokémon? sometimes when i use the AR mode the Pokémon is over my head ._.
