    I theorise that the max is always the same for the same pokemon.
    Just had a look through mine, and that seems to be the case. I hadn't noticed before now.

    I presumed that the higher CP Pokemon that appeared as you levelled up were actually stronger, or had the potential to be, but it seems they're just closer to hitting their max and don't need as much stardust spent on them to do it.

    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.*
    Turns out you don't have to use your camera. So far I'm liking it, it's obviously quite different and new from the other Pokemon 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.
    My area is a bit meh as well, I'm just glad I work in the city centre, so I get access to all these pokestops :ahee:

    I would like the game too, if it is possible to play Pokemon GO! as I am used to - so catching, training and fighting with them, but in reality.

    Here's a guide for getting it from the Google store.
    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=4210692

    You can just Google Pokemon Go apk file but you risk downloading one with malware and it doesn't update or properly link to your account.

    They cluster around populated places. I think the algorithm they use is related to number of players that have passed through the area.

    It's not available in UK so you either need to fool your phone into thinking you're in US, Germany or Australia or wait until it's released. If you know anyone from those countries you can just use their ID. Or you need to Google different ways to change yours. I have android so can't really give you specific information for that.

    Q2) When I click on the pokemon in my nearby area (the grey shadow ones) I see some feet thing on it ... what
    do they represent as I bleeming spent ages trying to find any and gave up.

    Remember you can use 6 pokemon to attack the gym. So you can take on powerful ones.
