    Well guys, I am getting a new phone for my B-Day this year and will finally get something which can play Pokemon Go on! =D

    Will either be an Iphone 5s or an Iphone 6 (parents have said pending on price obviously).
    Any hints or tips for me? =l
    Birthday is in a little over a month but, I will probably get it early.

    It might be level 15 you unlock great and possibly 20 for ultra. I'm only 18 atm.

    I'm so lucky there's 4 gyms in a 10 minute walk for me!
    Great balls are unlocked at level 12 and ultra balls are unlocked at level 20. Apparently there are master balls in the code for the game, but nobody has found them yet. They may only be used for legendaries, it's still not known.

    Does it matter which team you join? Because I'm level 4 after going out for the first time today with Pokemon Go. So I'll have to pick at the next level.

    I went out for the first time today since I downloaded Pokemon Go. I was going with my dad to Sainsbury's for grocery shopping. I caught 16 Pokemon by the time I got home :yeah:. I evolved the Pidgey with the highest CP to Pidgeotto, now Pidgeotto CP is 80. The rarest Pokemon I caught was Ghastly and Poliwag. I saw a Pidgeot when my dad parked outside Sainsbury's :zomg: ! I wasted a lot of Poke balls trying to get it, then ran eventually. There was a few Poke stops and 2 Pokemon gyms on the way to Sainsbury's.

    Overall, a great experience for my first time out with Pokemon Go :proud:.

    I also found a Gastly in Sainsburys today!

    The mural by the door was a pokestop and someone had placed a lure

    When you get a zubat in a 5km egg.

    I've hatched 4 10km eggs and have gotten 3 Eevees. Out of the other 53 eggs I've hatched, only 4 have been new Pokemon, and one of those (Meowth) I managed to catch in the wild less than 5 minutes later anyway.

    Frustrating doesn't even begin to describe it.

    There are no in game changes depending on the team so just chose the one you most agree with.

    But eggs give you loads of candies and if you get a high level eevee that can give you an insane vaporeon - so its not that bad!

    I'm about to go out for at least 30 minutes so I get some exercise :dumbells:. There's a Poke stop only 5 minutes away from where I live. My dad said he wants to drive down to Portsmouth to look at a new van, so I'm excited to get more Pokemon Go time! :yay:

    True, but Eevees are so common that building up the candies really isn't too difficult. I've already evolved 5 or 6 of them. While they can evolve to high CPs (primarily Vaporeon) you really expect more from a 10k egg.

    I evolved a 10k egg 2 days ago and got a Mr. Mime. Since they're available in the 5k eggs, I was slightly disappointed, but still a new Pokemon I guess.

    I hate it when the game gets stuck at the camera screen or just completely freezes!
