    Pokémon Go

    AKA Sloth ruins her life

    (kidding)

    (I hope)

    Anyway, I decided to give the new craze a try for three reasons:

    1. It seems interesting and fun. Though I don't care about pokemon at all, it's still a cool concept.
    2. It'll make good water cooler talk. A lot of people I know are already hooked (can't say I'm surprised film people are into this).
    3. I'll probably get more exercise playing this game than I normally would.

    I've been playing less than 24 hours and I already find myself laughing over some of the things this game has caused me to experience:
    -A Ryhorn followed me out of a hardware store this morning.
    -A Sandshrew jumped into my car while I was at a red light.
    -I actually had the thought "I don't like all these snake pokemon right outside my apartment..."

    ^I caught both the Ryhorn and Sandshrew btw.


    I imagine there's more of you that are trying/want to try the game so I thought I'd make a thread about it (plus I need somewhere to share these ridiculous experiences).

    Thankfully, this isn't compatible with my phone.

    Another waste of my youth narrowly avoided?!

    Waaaagh!

    My cellphone is old and bloated with updates I couldn't roll back if I wanted to. I can't download new programs, even by offloading everything to an SD card that's mostly empty. For some reason, I can't download directly to the SD card either.

    So I'll observe vicariously, and take amusement that people are now going to churches for purpose of getting Pokeballs.
    For some, "how", not "why", is the fundamental unit of measure for curiosity. This divergence is neither parallel, nor straight. Where one might have a "why?-5" problem, it might only be a "how?-2" question. But then, there are also many things where the "why?" is immediately obvious but the "how?" is best measured in centuries of perpetual wonder. Both approaches have their drawbacks.

    If one is superior, the other is unaware of it.

    installing as we speak, planning on being too lazy to actually play it.

    I haven't been able to play much. The server is down. That said, I'm on team blue. Biggest regret is watching a charmander get away.

    I installed it and then felt silly. But it got me to play Ingress, which I became heavily addicted to.

    I'll get back into Pokemon again since the name Go is catchy and stand alone. God damn Japan is a genius at marketing (I was just watching the chinpokomon episode last night.)

    I'll post more later when I have time, but for now I can't contain:

    I caught a Ponyta!

    Also there's a very stubborn Growlithe that keeps going on top of my friend's TV stand.

    And Pigey's keep walking on the sidewalk. How Pigey-destrian.



    Also I picked team blue as well.

    The augmented reality bit makes it pretty irresistible.
