    Got this today, turns out TSR Towers is right next to a gym. No idea what I'm doing yet though…
    I was disappointed when TSR HQ turned out to not be a gym :cry:

    Well the pub next door is almost TSR HQ, given how much time we all spend in there :p:

    Yup. Or something right next to it at least, it doesn't let me see the gym details 'cause I'm not lv5 yet

    I've used 25mb data over the course of 2 days going outside omw shopping and back etc. It barely uses data ... though do note it uses gps/camera etc ....
    just make sure u have full battery b4 heading out.
    Ahh right, that's really good. The battery shouldn't be much of an issue. What are portable chargers for? :ahee:

    That moment you spend ages tracking a new Pokemon only for it to disappear and be replaced by a Rattata by the time you find it 😟🙄😠

    It's already out in the US and Aus/NZ but the UK release date has been delayed because of server issues. Should be hitting the UK in the next few days or so
    Fine. Another question again: Is it true that Pokemons in this game can be captured without weaken them in a fight? what about fights against wild pokemons, trainers and gym leaders?

    Because you are not used to do that in the pokemon games, as it was not possible catching pokemons in cities?

    It's not that. It's the fact you have to lift up your phone to towards the Pokemon, to others it looks like you're taking a picture. Sometimes the Pokemon is sat there next to a group of people, or in my case some kids, I couldn't really point my camera towards them without looking dodgy :indiff:

    If you turn off AR (camera) you don't need to do that.

    That is an argument. This is another aspect of this game which may improved.

    After reading some posted comments, I am still not convinced that Pokemon GO! should be better than the edition games.*

    The closest Pokestop to my house is a children's play park. The second closest..... is a children's play park :ninja:

    I've been playing in quite a localised area the last couple of days, between my house and work, which contains 5 gyms, and a similar amount of Pokestops. I've got a day off work tomorrow so I might walk into the town centre and see what the situation's like there.
