    Reddit had a thread or something about this. Some good ideas in there. Hopefully Niantic will update to give more pokemon in rural areas.
    Thanks puddles!

    It annoys me that the gym team colours on this poll don't match up with their actual colours.

    You basically just flick the pokeball towards the pokemon (like paper toss). I struggled a bit trying to catch Zubat, it doesn't stay still like the other pokemon. Also if the pokemon has a yellow or red circle on it, it's more difficulty to catch, if it's green it's easy to catch, at least that's what I've read.

    This is why I downloaded it early. *

    Plus I'm back at work today after being off since Friday, so I'd have been super annoyed if it wasn't available when I was actually able to play.

    Quote as promised... Pokemon Go has now been officially released in the UK.

    If you've downloaded the APK file you should be able to install the app from the play store and log in as usual

    Thanks for the shout-out, but after two days of playing on it fairly obsessively I cleared the data and uninstalled the app.

    I've been interested over the past week or so to see what the play value (is that the right term?) is - it feels like it might be a bit of a gimmick which gets boring after a while :beard:

    Found a hotspot area in my city, theres a fountain with three pokestops around it and when you sit down you can get all 3, amd they constantly have lures on them so I caught tons whilst having lunch!

    Some guy in a suit ran through shouting "You sad Poke****ers!" though lmao. The fact he knew that it was a pokestop is what makes it funnier.
