    so basically I have to pay as I can't level up my Pokemon without buying them candy?*
    If you transfer the pokemon you catch to the professor then you get candy from them

    You can gain candy by caputring the same pokemon as the one you caught. There may be lots in the wild. This gives candy which contributes to the leveling up and evolutions. You gain stardust by capturing random pokemon so that shouldn't be a worry. By transferring them, you gain candy to level pokemon up to make them stronger.

    Anyone else struggling with the 'GPS not found' error?

    When it works this game is amazing. However, when it doesn't - which for me feels like most of the time - it's annoying beyond all means.

    Loads of problems with the servers today. To be expected I guess with the game releasing. Didn't have too many problems earlier today, but after around 5pm the game was struggling to even sign in.

    Still, I ventured into my town's centre for the first time. Saw loads of people playing, loads of lures being put down. So I spent my day wandering between Pokestops and gyms, with a couple of pub stops in between :lol: Managed to level up a couple of levels. I'm now level 11.

    Although, I thought I understood how the gyms worked. But I visited a few that were controlled by yellow (my team) and wasn't able to leave a Pokemon there. Do I have to battle it and build it's prestige to say, level 3, before I can leave a 3rd Pokemon there? As before now I thought the gym's level increased with each Pokemon that was left, but now i'm not sure :dontknow:

    Never really done any Pokemon stuff before but I downloaded this since it's just THAT popular.

    Managed to sign in using Google but it crashed just as it looked like it was getting somewhere; reopened, now it's stuck on the loading screen with about 75% left to go, and it hasn't gone up and just comes up with errors. It's also taken about 15% of my battery up already.

    Q1) What does the random grass thing that pops up on your map mean?

    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.

    I want a Jigglypuff and a Eeve that would bloody evolve into a flareon. :heart: got the stupid water Eeve. :mad:
    + a Charizard (if that's not too much to ask. :puppyeyes: )
    Dunno about 1. But 2 for two I know that if you see one footstep it means you're far from it, two means you're getting closer and three means you're pretty close to it. Those footsteps help you find your way towards a pokemon.

    This is basically me. :cry2: I don't think I'd be confident enough to battle anyone.

    Central London has a pokestop at almost every turn! It's sick.

    I've picked Squirtle ... when I used to play the old Game Boy cartridge in 98 I was always a Squirtle kid!

    My app seems to have trouble loading - GPS signal not found, could not find player data and so on.

    Was at a shopping centre this evening, tried playing a bit but the internet was playing up. Also felt awkward wandering about trying to catch flipping Rattata's.
