Default Pokemon Go For IOS/Android

Haven't see a thread yet

Been waiting for a while for this, I played ingress for a while but i'm a massive pokemon fan so this is as close to having pokemon as i can get. Although i'm not too ecstatic that you cant battle other people, this is at least a start.

At work i have picked up a bulbasaur and a caterpie right in the shop. I think its going to be very interesting to see how it goes.

Anyone else going to have a go?

Funny timing. I told a work colleague that it was due out this morning, then a couple of hours later another colleague told me it's out.

I've submitted 2 bugs so far:
- On iPhone 5, SETTINGS and TIPS almost never respond to touch. It just reverts back to gameplay screen.
- All 3 Starter Pokemon don't seem to always be visible. I saw only Bulbasaur, and Charmander only briefly appeared AFTER I caught Bulbasaur. Didn't even see Squirtle.

Typical of day 1 things, it had already experienced its first service overload outage briefly a couple of hours ago.

Interesting that it's compatible with tablets. I was able to get it running on my Galaxy note tab 2014 model.

note2's not exactly a tab, more a phone/phablet category.

but yeah, I was surprised when it didnt appear on the play store, but know the note2's gpu is good enough, i was pleasantly surprised that a direct apk installed and worked.



so far it seems quite awesome.

I'm finding it's not short-listing properly just yet in Play store. I was told by my work colleague to add "niantic" to the search string.

Using the apk i could get to the playstore page, its just hidden if i try to search pokemon go.




It's playing fine fortunately, I'll just need to perform app updates manually for it when they release. (up until if its ever classed as compatible for me)

Servers don't seem to really handle load. Was working for a bit this morning, then the point of interest type things which give you items stopped working. Restarted game and servers once again not available. Le sigh..

had an issue with the "servers are busy" this morning but managed to catch a clefairy while waiting for the shower and an eevee while on the shitter last night haha. 12 pokemon so far 4 being doubles. Strangely the wife is mad keen on it too. Might have to go for a drive up into town to do an ingress walk to stock up on pokeballs.
