I chose Mystic because Articuno is my favorite of the three Legendary Birds (it's one of my all time favorite Pokemons ever) and it matches me.

I still don't dare to challenge the gyms though.

Moltres is actually my least favorite of the birds, I somehow didn't realize that the teams were represented by them. I only picked Valor since I like the color red, like the way the word sounds, and the team leader silhouette looked coolest.

Now everybody is biting each other's heads off and getting competitive for gyms. Meanwhile, I'm just trying to catch a Clefairy.

I just saw that the requirements involve Android 4.4 or higher.... My phone only supports officially up to Android 4.3 Either I get a new phone, root my phone or just skip Pokemon Go....

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Last time I went for a bit of a Gym drive (as a passenger, don't Pokemon Go and drive) I went past 10 Gyms in total. 7 were Blue, 1 was Yellow, 2 were Red. One of the Red ones was too strong for me to easily reinforce, it had 3 on it and the weakest guy had a CP of 700, so I didn't bother. The other one had a free slot and a couple of decent Pokemans on it but by the time I got to it Blue had claimed it.

I could have taken the Yellow Gym but didn't because there aren't many Yellow Gyms. Also most of the Blue Gyms have 4+ guys on it with the top guys at around CP 1000. Blue is basically locking down the entire area. I know it's a contest and just a game but still. If your team owns pretty much all of the gyms in an area? Don't go attacking other gyms! Defend the ones you've already claimed.

Pokemon Go is available on iOS and Android devices but not Windows Phone/Windows 10 Mobile due to lack of popularity in comparison. I have a WinPhone but can live with that. What I can't live with, what I can't comprehend is why Pokémon Go isn't available on the eShop on 3/DS. Windows phones aren't as popular, 3/DSs are but still aren't given what they should have gotten before any phone. Nintendo makes games for consoles, not phones, logically the software should be available for download on Nintendo consoles.

As for location tracking, it isn't necessary. Dream Radar for example can make Pokémon appear without location tracking, it has an odometer and can recognise passerbys or friends with 3/DSs.

You could always connect with your phone via hotspot for online play too, as I do in the main games.

@DPSP491 Location tracking is required for Pokemon Go. There is no way to have the same experience without it.

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

Everything that happens in Pokemon Go is tied to your location. Without the GPS it would not work. This is a game that is built for and well suited to mobile devices. Pokemon Go wouldn't really work on the 3DS.

That said, it also goes the other way. A traditional Pokemon game wouldn't work well on mobile either. These are two different platforms which require two different types of content. There's a space in the middle where games can work on both but there's also content that could only work on one or the other.

@skywake I guess since I haven't been able to play, I wouldn't know. It just doesn't seem like it would be a difficult thing to put into a 3/DS platform to me.

As I said, everything in the game is tied to your location. It's also a fairly dynamic game with stuff on the map changing by the minute. It's not like a pedometer where the game will make a Pokemon randomly appear for every few hundred metres you walk. It's a game where there are literally things on the map changing by the minute that you have to walk up to and interact with.

Short of them releasing a Newer New 3DS that has GPS and 4G this game would not work on the 3DS. And there's no reason why it should exist on portables either. It's a game built for the features that are standard on mobile devices. Just like games on the 3DS are built for the features of that platform.

Been waiting to score a Poke I'd not seen anyone carrying locally and finally my dream came true.

I just want a Meowth. (Though something tells me ground and water Pokemon will be predominant around here...)

Hopefully this game will come out here soon.

Considering people are already organizing events and even people on tv shows are playing it.

I have it. I love it. I've only walked about 50m and haven't caught a Pokémon yet, but I love it

You guys had me at blood and semen.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

Looks like a museum is having some sort of new pests infesting their area.

Apparently someone found a koffing in the Holocaust museum... yeah....

On a more touching story, a person found a Pikachu over the grave of his little brother, who loved Pikachu so much his gravestone is a picture of him.

Does anyone else here feel like 10 km is too much of a distance to hatch an egg? Like, I love doing exercise and stuff,and I run a few miles each day, but man, 10 km just seems like too much. 6 bloody miles!!!

@-Red- I think its alright so long as the pokemon inside is worth it. Just ride a bike around the block everyday and you'll have it within a few days. I was thinking about getting a bike just for that purpose while I was walking around my local park when I realized there was an actual bike shop near there. Like, it was literally just the bike shop in a pokemon game. Pokemon is real you guys!
