Pokémon Go!

Who is playing? What do you think of it?

I think it's really interesting that the game forces you to go out and explore your community, especially public parks, public art, cultural institutions, etc. I've already run into others outside who are playing the game, and at least one person I know has gotten a date from meeting a fellow Pokémon trainer.

I love it!! I did have a recent weird experience at a gym though. I was trying to reinforce my team gym and put a pokemon on it but I peeled out of there pretty quick when I saw a man stroll by with a gun in his pocket aND the handle sticking out... No more playing in strange neighborhoods.

I'm definitely sticking to my usual haunts: walks through the neighborhood, parks, shops, and such I always visit. It's a great incentive to get out and walk!

Mural on my office building is a pokestop. 18 floors of nerds dropping lures on it all day long. I'm getting rewarded for sitting around!

pokemon no.

You know what else gets kids to go outside? Slapping their stupid phones out of their hands.

They get bored indoors and then it's time to meet up with friends and go ride bikes or something. At least that's how I remember we all used to do it. Lol fuck that shit! Last I heard, what those kids are doing was called "loitering." Get the fuck outta here! lol

Walk out into traffic staring at your phone for fukn Blastoise lol

In the airport a few days ago I got a Ditto and a Pikachu with a Santa hat on. It's still fun!

I'm loving the new gym update. Plus the game gets me out in the summer a lot more.
