TPCi sent me this when I enquired about an ETA
It's focused on Pokémon TCGO though
Put on an incense and a lure on a nearby pokestop, and sat down for 30 minutes with some coffee. I only caught 1 or 2 new Pokemon, but the sheer amount of Zubats, Rattatas, and Pidgeys is nice for leveling:
Same here (beside the jiggly). It was working so smooth for the past few hours and with absolutely nothing near me now I decided fuck it and use incense. One minute later server crash.Just when I used my Incense the servers went down. And before that my network connection died when I encountered a Jigglypuff. What a day.
Actually it's good news! Go to the Shop page and you'll see a shield icon in the top-right corner of the screen. You can press that once every 24 hours to get free Stardust and Pokecoins. You get 500 Stardust and 10 Coins for every Pokemon you currently have defending a gym, up to a max of 10 (so 5000 Stardust and 100 Coins).
If your area is stacked with well defended gyms and you can get your own Pokemon in there defending with them, it's like guaranteed daily bonuses from that shield icon =)
I was at a bar last night and when the bartender asked what my boyfriend and I were doing we told him about Pokémon. Turned out he had already downloaded based solely on its similarity to geocaching.Holy shit. I had a conversation with a barista and customer at Starbucks about this game. It's going to be huge. Just caught 4 Pokémon before servers died.
I used incense and in 20 mins 2 rattatas have shown up, kinda disappointing.
So I downloaded this yesterday, and the servers were shitting the bed for most of the afternoon. I picked it back up later and got through some sort of intro where I create my character and then caught my first pokeman (Charmander). Is there something I can do to train him, or is this just a "walk around and collect stuff" game?
This reminds me of Google Ingress, which I believe was also developed by Niantic.
Anyways, I have never played a pokemon game, so I'm not really sure what to expect out of this, but it seems to be popular among my friends and on the internet, so I thought it'd give it a shot. I always take walks on my breaks at work, so I'm hoping to run into something while I'm out and about.
