This game is costly even though it's free on the Play Store, just to go catch one Kadabra I found, I had to use 200MB of data in like, 10 minutes. While it is fun, I don't have the funds for this lmao
This game is fun if you play together with other people, friends, or family.
If you play this single player, then you're playing the wrong game.
This game is such a joke. I deleted it the instant I realized that I actually have to go outside :))
And frankly I find it very fishy with everyone talking about it. It's a surveillance app for sure.
For now, I'm playing only one game: Orborous.
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2016Don't play it and shut up then. I bet young kids are the one that actually replied to this.

I've seen complete overhauls of the entire game through updates. Trading and PvP are apparently coming which will completely change the game and will ignite enough of a fire to keep it going. Plus all the other generations will be added to the roster. What a naive, short sighted mind you have.
Dont worry, nobody will play this game in 2 months, cause the majority of nerdos will die ! yes its called Poke-a-death (u see what i did there ? :)

It'll just enhance the game a bit but it may ultimately die still. It depends on what they actually bring. Just making the game more social, etc, isn't enough. The gameplay itself needs a big change.
I was hoping the gameplay would be closer to pokemon ranger on the ds for example. At least gyms should have different gameplay.
There's only 2 majr things wrong with this game. First being the broken tracker, Second being the fact that you can ONLY buy normal Pokeballs from the store which kills high level players as their pokemon are to powerful to be caught by one. It'll really, really damage returning players if this latter point isnt recified soon.

This game will last for awhile aslong as it gets continuous updates, this game is unique because no other apps has ever used pokemons in this way, and its not easy to copy because of rights from Nintendo.

They can be as asocial as they want. If they only want to interact with their phone and not speak to other people, let them be. At least they'll be healthier and fitter. Who are we to judge them?

"Pokemon fever hits Britain: One child is hit by a motorbike, four others are rescued from a cave and servers crash as desperate fans hurry to download the app". :
I will never play this. Too young to die. If pokemon were real...close enough. And you know it, human are not ready for the real thing.
While i think that this game has captured (see what i did there) the imagination of everyone, and it's now making people want to go out in the world to catch pokemon and also help them interact with other people instead of sat indoors on their games consoles/computers, it only has a limited appeal.
for one thing, once you've caught your pokemon, you level it up with dust and candy, you can get the candy from transferring same type pokemon. But once you've caught it and levelled it up, it's not like you use the pokemon to actually battle others to catch them, it's the luck of the draw you throw a ball and hope it catches it, don't weaken it first, or have a battle, no special pokemon moves to play it. The pokestops reset every 5 minutes (lucky some people who work inside a stop).
If i could improve the game, i'd make it so you could actually battle your pets with other players or pokemon for more interaction, also make it so if you could walk to level up your pets like you do with the eggs.
I think its a good start for a game, but a lot of improvement is needed to keep people interested in it, even to the point of maybe watching videos to earn coins instead of selling them. i mean come on £79.99 for 14,500 coins. Who would in their right mind spend that amount of money for virtual currency

It just takes advantage of nostalgia using the pokemon brand and it has novel gameplay. However the gameplay itself is shallow, so over time people won't still want to play it, especially given the efforts needed to actually play it. It'll die down within a year.
How long can this game be a hit... After some time people will get bored and tired because games like this is difficult to improve and progress in time to keep users invested In them.
Anonymous, 17 Jul 2016youre dead wrong. Its already by far the biggest mobile game. People who werent pokemon fans w... morehe is partly correct, and you are too, i played the old Pokemon versions, the Nintendo products and also the desktop / laptop verisons, it is fun yes but it literally died after a few years, now PokemonGO is undeniably the best mobile game for its genre, it made fans be even more addicted to Pokemon and it made the people that don't know Pokemon to play it and eventually get addicted to it since you will get to know people and go to places you did not go to before
downside is, in it's first week, PokemonGO has got some people end up dead or injured for crossing streets or waters while concentrating on their phones ONLY and not looking around, kids, teens and some adults break in to some places or buildings which they are not allowed to do so, memorial places being disrespected as what the news are displaying, destroying relationships by having less time with family, loved ones, friends etc, having students, employees being late or absent just to catch a Pokemon
you have to balance things up when you do something that you want because you can affect the community and you just can't say that I"M HAPPY AND ENJOYING MY LIFE, WHY WOULD I CARE ABOUT OTHERS OR THE THINGS/PLACES I TRESPASSED/DISRESPECTED, you were not born and allowed to live just for yourseld, you are to help or compliment the things around you
They should increase the rate of Pokemon spawn. I live in a small town, there are some Pokestops in the area, but closer to my house there are none and no Pokemon at all. So basically I can play only in some time I have between my job and dinner. I won't ride 5km just to catch some virtual creature.
