Pokemon Go so far

Well I downloaded the real version this time after its release and I am not sure what I am suppose to do with captured Pokemon other than fight with them. Although it has been a bit of a learning curve, I did manage to evolve one bird before the server crash. Even know I just got to level 5 I haven’t got the chance to fight yet.

I must of spotted around 30 people playing in my local area ranging from 5 to 50. 

I don’t think there are any death traps around here like you see on the news but I figured out that where you capture a Pokemon you will be able to go back to that same spot and capture from there again. 

There doesn’t seem to be any randomisation, in fact it’s using the Ingress overlay, all the hotspots in that are all the same hotspots in Pokemon. Where you capture the little critters seems to be dependant on the XM level in Ingress so you could combine the two games to help you find what you are looking for. 

The downside to this will be a very quick death to your phone. Unless you’re that obsessed to run this way or carry a number of mobile phones your enjoyment will be short lived.

It’s even shorter lived when the server keeps crashing. 

I am sure in the future when they have fixed the issues, there will be those clubs people will be starting up, Pokemon hunting trips, you could go on horse back but the hounds won’t help! 

Well time to go back to charge my phone!

Fake Pokémon Go app tops the Apple charts in the UK.

It seems thousands of people are being duped into a fake version of Pokemon Go simply titled ‘Go Catch Them All’.

Its full of a huge amount of adverts and it’s basically a trap. How many people have downloaded it I don’t know, but over 1,000 people have posted a review, I would times that by 10 to get a true number of downloads.

The app has two screenshots one is a screenshot to one side of what you what you may see when you load the game. But the main screenshot is a copy from the real Pokemon Go and is probably a breach of copyright.

Although it’s free to download from the app store I hate to know how much they charge for the removal of the ads. And that is a huge £7.99 Followed by the referred income by you clicking on the huge amount of ads inbedded Nguyen who made this has probably made a tidy little sum of money by now!

So heed my warning and play safe people. Be patient and wait for the release of the real game.
