The only reason this game is popular, besides being a pokemon game, is because it DOESN'T relly on microtransaction.

1) If a game gets a popular as uncontrollably popular with normies as Pokemon Go, theres a good chance its shit. Sturgeon's Law.

I don't get butthurt by someone elses opinion, unlike you.

It's ok to not like something, but at least try to give a valid reason as to why you think its "trash". Again, consider posting on a thread about a game you like, or at least try to give valid points that start a coherent argument instead of throwing buzzwords left and right.

Oh and by the way, I don't even have the game installed, you're just making a fool out of yourself here.

Lack of content outside competing for gyms and collecting pokemon, which the game encourages you to train and put in a gym.
The game heavily favours the people who specifically put time and money aside for it. You spend money, you get more pokemon, your pokemon get stronger, you level up and find stronger pokemon, you get more of your pokemon into gyms, you get more stardust/pokecoins in return. If you didn't get to the top during the first week of launch, you'll never make it.
Normally I wouldn't mind, but there is literally shit all else to do other than collect pokemon and challenge gyms, and the collecting pokemon part is getting pretty boring.

>>345495456
>why aren't you playing pokemon go?
I only still play Pokemon for PvP. Even if they did implement it it'd be more of a chore grinding for teams than it is in a mainline game. Also anyone who's been playing on a simulator for more than a year would be in the top 99% of players. Since most normies don't play comp so it wouldn't be fun stomping them.
>>
>>345495456
Because I'm already tired of it, first few days of playing has shown me all that there is to see with the game. It all feels like a grindfest and going to capture gyms is pointless considering they switch hands every few minutes to every few hours. Not to mention that any semblance of combat and team building is shit at best, which is why I even care about the franchise to begin with.

Played it for ~2-3 days and got bored with it. The gameplay, if you can even call what's there that, is so fucking shallow, gyms aren't fun because the combat system is trash. The AR novelty wore off pretty quick.

Does anyone else suffer from the game breaking "perma 3 footprints" bug? Because I'm getting real fucking tired of it.

If you can't track Pokemon and have to hope you stumble upon them, what the fuck is the point of the game?

I played it a little bit and I think the popularity will be short-lived. Unless you live in the middle of a huge city (and not even in dense suburbs), there isn't a lot of close Pokemon stuff like gyms or stops that doesn't require a ton of walking or driving to get to.

You mostly catch the same pokemon in your local area, and after you've seen 10 rattatas and pidgeys, it just isn't that cool.

Couple that with the fact that you are competing with the biggest, most autistic, poop-socking fanbase in existence, as a casual player you will never come close to owning a gym or any of the crap like that.

The game is a really fun idea, but lacking in execution unless you are fanatically devoted to it.

I very rarely see the footprints drop below 3, but it has happened. Sometimes pokemon sneak up on me even though the list still claims that they're all 300+m away.

I am a 308 pounds male who works from home and doesn't have any friends so never have any reason to go outside. Pokemon Go has given me a reason to get out of my chair and go out into the world.

It's even worse than that. High levels still see nothing but hordes of Pidgeys and Rattatta.

As far as Pokemon nostalgia, there are plenty of other options with varying amounts of depth so I think i'm good there.

Personally for the social aspect I would rather hang out and play some console games or go to the arcade with friends than walk around looking for Pokemon. If it had to be somewhat active then I'd rather just go further and casually play some sports.

Lots of rare pokemon are from eggs
After playing with a group of friends for a while, from levels 1 up to 12, we all found the same pokemon in the exact same spots

Because they're not autists. They can actually appreciate that not all games need to be Dorf Fort and that different games offer different experiences to the player, in this case, a largely social experience.
>>
>>345499891
It means that there is no adventure, you're stuck catching the same low level pokemon until the developers think they've got enough figures to announce that they're popular.
Of course, the rabid pokemon fanbase would gladly consume fresh shit if it means they get to catch more pokemon.

What's even the purpose of a map like this? I'd like a map of Pokestops, please.
>>
>>345499627
That map looks familiar. Where was that screenshot taken?

Because I'm not driving out to a location that has 3-4 pokestops and farming them for several hours just to catch up and actually win gym battles.

You're welcome.

>>345500324
I use it to see if there's any rare pokemon nearby before I head out
You can find the location of every single pokestop by looking at the ingress intel map
>>
>>345499891
It's just not worth it. The pokemon catching has ground to a halt. If the devs are withholding pokemon from the game until a later date, then there's just no point in excitedly checking your phone, only to see another rattata or pidgey.

I dont play pokemon go because I honestly didn't like gen 1
There have been team based gps games for smart phones before, and this is just a pokemon skin of that.
I get that manually getting random encounters is more realistic and very nostalgic, but the actual game is more shallow than a fucking gameboy game
I also got over pokemon a year ago. every game is way too similar and I beat them all the same way because so many pokemon are just better than others.
Its babies first rpg with useless party characters.

I have like a thousand pokestops in my city

if you could improve CP by battling wild shitmons or trainers it would make it much better

>>345500804
>what is incense
>what is lucky egg
You do realise that the more pokemon you catch, the further you are in the game, right?
>>
>>345500165
Because Pokemon Go is a great way to get outside and meet new people. I like to go for walks, but being able to catch pokemon and chat with fellow trainers while I'm walking makes the whole experience that much better. I've gotten into the habit of getting up early to go for a morning hunt and then going out again around 9 or 10 at night for my second hunt to catch the pokemon that only spawn at night. I've only been doing this for a week and I already feel a lot better physically than I did before. Exercise and fresh air are good for you.
>>
>>345500536
My brother has a lot of fucking Eevees too. I thought that our hometown was basically Eevee-fuck-central but I guess I'm wrong, I guess the shitty Niantic devs just thought Eevee were supercommon as fuck

It just doesnt interest me, ive been off the pokemon train since gen 3, sure I bought the games after that, but I just didnt have the same interest in them, and with Pokemon Go, I just didnt care

Also too many normies play it who dont know shit about pokemon, they just play it because its popular
>>
>>345501076
>meet new people
Have you seen the 20-30 year old playerbase for this game? They're all awkwardly shuffling around parks staring at their phones. If this wasn't a global phenomenon, people would be getting arrested for suspicious activity.
>>
>>345501052
You do realize that you don't need either of those items to catch Pokemon, right? That lures act as incense and you can find them all over the place, right? That lucky eggs are given out free, right?
>>
>>345501052
But that's just wrong. There is no "further in the game" because there isn't really an end point.
>>
Because my life is already being consumed enough by other shitty mobile games
>>
>>345500814
It's the original, it's what was relevant back when the series was at the peak of it's popularity, it's what everyone is most familiar with. You may as well be asking "why are people so obsessed with the same old original trilogy shit??? um it's 2016, there's the prequels AND the new trilogy with a strong female!"

Like what? Go ahead post those epic shitty games you play than you think are better than Pokémon.
>>
>>345501267
Both of those reasons are chance and location based. Buying them is 100% guaranteed, and is a more efficient way of obtaining them.
>>
>>345501230
I'm 30, and I've seen people of all ages playing this game. Everyone I've seen has been friendly and outgoing, at the very least asking what team you're on, while others actually make conversation. Hell, this morning a guy tapped me on the shoulder while I was doing a gym battle and asked what team I was on. When I told him "blue" he got hyped up and gave me a high five, and then said he and the group he was with would have the gym on lock down all day because they were doing something at the church where the gym was located.

Little interactions like that are fun.
>>
>>345498849
CP doesnt really matter, and you can rack up coins by just taking a few gyms, leaving shit pokes and collecting the reward. who cares if you hold the gym for a long time? you still get to farm coins.
>>
>>345501459
Not him but I'm wrapped up in playing some shitty college football simulator. Taking the ultimate challenge and trying to turn American Samoa into a winning school on Hard difficulty.
>>
>>345501428
And? You can still catch pokemon without incense, you know. Go stand by a boosted pokestop for a few minutes and you'll get more than any incense would give you.

Face it man, no matter how you twist your logic, the game is not pay 2 win.
>>
>>345501459
>that you think are better than Pokémon.
Nobody said that, anon
>>
>No friends

Do people really just pick up and play with others? I'm not TOO socially inept or unattractive, I just don't have the opportunity to meet people outside of work. Honestly considering going to the park to see what happens.
>>
>>345501428
With the current state of the game you could easily piggyback off of lures for hours on end

The other day I went to campus to register for next semester's classes and nobody was around 'cuz it's summer. Afterwards was wandering around exploring the twenty something pokestops and two gyms on campus. A security guy was playing on his phone right next to a statue that was one of the gyms so I walked up, checked it on my phone and said 'Oh, the gym is blue. Are you team mystic?' and he was like 'Heck yeah man' and then I rode shotgun in his vehicle collecting pokestops while he showed me the best routes to take.

It's alright.
>>
Do lures and incense stack? Do you get swarmed?
asking for a friend haha
>>
>>345501734
I got a gf thanks to this game. You can do it.

Just chit chat a bit, ask for number in case of rare pepes. Then just talk to her from time to time and invite her to hunt pokeys with you.

Fun dates.
>>
>>345495456
Because every time I throw a pokeball the game crashes.
>>
>>345501773
It's so simulator that it barely even qualifies as football, just choose the players with the best stats and throw them at other teams. Considering the 'recruiting' process it doesn't really qualify as college either.

>>345501856
They do stack, but what helps more than incense is having more trainers around. The more people near a boosted pokestop, the more pokemon show up. Having friends with you is far more valuable than incense.
>>
>>345495456
Because if I wanted to play Pokemon I would dust off my 3DS.

idk, was never into pokemon so got bored with it after the first night might try it again after some big updates

I installed it to see what is all thos fuss about.

Found out its a cookie clicker with no actual gameplay just the typical be online to gain scores in our game that has no end.

Basically you could play Desert Bus and have the same features.

I dont hate the game tho. It has its place and audience. Doesnt hurt me.
