    I'm going so crazy waiting for an offical app!!
    I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was surprised to see other people playing whilst I was out and to see the gyms in my area claimed, considering the game hasn't released yet, and I don't live in a city and i'm outside of my town's centre. Looking forward to seeing how popular it becomes!

    You can download a version from apk mirror if you're super keen

    Starter pokemon are Squirtle, Bulbasaur and Charmander :ahee:
    :noway: I'm not downloading an apk version don't trust it. I want the official version!

    Damn is that it? I taught there be more pokemon to choose from. I'll probably go for Squirtle in that case



    Is there mega evolution in the game?

    I just caught an Eevee in my living room.

    Also, slightly disconcerting, I looked at my phone when I woke up in the middle of the night, and there was a Rhyhorn next to my bed...

    No mega evolution.

    Yes, keep it official! We just have to wait a bit.

    Also, I saw a guy today playing that game. I was tempted to ask for the phone and just try it out, but I'm not that desperate.

    I just keep on checking the play store every few... Hours.

    They will probably add more variants in the future but we will have to wait few months before it happens.

    Paid application has some drawbacks such as less users would actually get it and some of them would definitely turn into piracy/downloading for free from 3rd party website.

    Of course it would be prevented with some security but this will be another drawback since it only makes it harder for users to play the game.

    Went Tesco today with my mum and on the motorway and in store came across a load of Pokemon, went up 2 levels got a kick ass raticate with hyperbeam that doles out 70 damage and has over 300 cp now that I powered it up. Caught some new Pokemon also; staryu, which was in the freezer food section, ghastly, caterpie and Weedle which happened to be in the fruit and veg itself, and jynx, which was cool! Saw silouettes for rhyhorn and weepinbell in Tesco also. Oh yeah also got a meowth also
