    anyone playing this?

    lately everyone i've seen out with a phone is catching pokemon not to mention my facebook feed full of pokemon related posts

    seems to be a popular game with both kids and 25-30 year olds

    On Friday it had 50,000 downloads then 2 days later it's at 5 million. I'm sure it's gonna go way higher.

    It's not in Norway atm, but it will blow up as soon this game is published in our country. Pokemon is so popular here!

    Saw kids walking around at 10pm playing it

    The only issue i see arising from it is people calling cops on suscipous people loitering as they walk around playing it

    That and someone getting bashed if they are not paying attention to the there surroundings

    I've seen two near traffic accidents as a result of the game. It's not something that interests me, as I guess I was a little old for Pokemon, but it seems popular amongst the 25-30 year olds in my area.

    I think it might be an interesting augmented reality game to play, and I honestly don't know anything about pokemon other than my cousin used to play it, and there's a pikachu in the game.

    The only thing I'm wondering is if/how they keep them off private property. I can only imagine explaining to my wife that the kids from the school next door are harassing the dog because there's a squirtle behind the shed in our back yard.

    In york, pa...down the road from me a couple kids got mugged by the perpetrator who used a "lure" in the game. I can see more of this happening.

    These stories are hilarious. Now I can't wait to get the hose out once this game comes to Canada

    Never been a pokemon fan, hated it when it first came out, brother was into it, called him a nerd and fag for playing it.

    Still have the same opinion this time around, though i have kids and they are enjoying it and it gets them out the house.

    Pokecrap go = servers are worse than EA games, always down.

    Read a bit about this.
    Apparently some teens in the US (of course) were shot at because the owner of the house they went to thought they were trying to break in! They didn't know they were being shot at til they got home and their mum saw bullet holes in the flat tire of their car..

    People are going crasy here in Norway. Some people from Mo I Rana (a city in north Norway) were climbing on buildings to catch pokemons!

    residents in a sururb which has the most popular pokemon go spot just got the spot removed by complaining enough to the company

    apparently there was 300+ people every night blocking traffic etc (the same spot i mentioned above)
