This topic is for those fellow CCers who have downloaded this new augmented reality game or those who are interested in knowing more.

I enjoyed playing it for two days but now I'm unable to log in because my account needs to be activated, though I never received the email. :|

Ah yes, the glitchyness of it is quite a bummer still... But I love playing it too! It's not even out officially in my country, so I make do with an .apk file, but so far I've reached level 13 and am the proud owner of the likes of Snorlax, Dratini, Pidgeot and Electabuzz.

Also, I love how it's getting people outside, and facilitating new friendships. There's an article written already (in Dutch, so I guess it would be hard to share with most of you) about how it is more effective at bringing people together than Christmas, new year's eve and Kingsday (a national holiday in which most of Holland turns into one big festival) combined :D

How many of your favourite pokemon have those of you who play managed to catch (or hatch)?

I am in love with this game. The only issue I'm having is that I live no where near pokestops or gyms. I don't live out in the woods, I live in a suburb kind of. And. I ran out of pokeballs xD So I have to find pokestops somewhere! I just evolved my first Eevee last night, very excited! It turned out to be a Jolteon though, I was hoping for a Vaporeon, but maybe the next one will be that!

I'm so jealous of all you guys who can play it! I don't even have a phone to play it myself. And despite my anxiety making me nervous leaving the house for most things I feel like it would be fun if I had a friend to walk around with. Though my area has always been stagnant with everything so I probably wouldn't even have a lot of pokemon to catch or pokestops to visit.

:) You guys be sure to catch loads of pokemon for me.

I've got no job to have an income, so about four or so years ago when my grandparents were getting rid of unnecessary expenses, my phone was the one who got cancelled. Since I don't go out anyway (due to sever anxiety/depression and my friends being all online) I don't really need a phone of my own. I just borrow my grandmother's old cellphone if I ever have to leave the house with one.

My favorite first gen pokemon are Charizard (first ever starter ftw), Machoke, and Clefairy. :3 Though I also love Meowth too.

I got a Meowth :D Haven't found those you mentioned either, tho I do have a charmander, my starter pokemon :)
I think my first gen was Charizard as well. No wait, it was actually pikachu! I had pokemon yellow :D

Ha, awesome! I had blue, brother had red and yellow. Actually I'm pretty sure we still have them. I know I still have my old copy of blue.

Charmander is definitely the starter I'd choose... I'd probably also choose to join team valor if I could play. Moltres is my favorite of the legendary birds.

Apparently you can get pikachu as your starter in Go if you keep walking out of range of the other starters when you get to the point where you can catch one. That's what I read online anyway.

I got mine as well as my other pokemon games.

Hmm I quite like Moltres, but I picked Instinct in the end, which is apparently the least popular team xD

And yes you can, but I picked charmander ^^ Fire and electric types seems to be rather rare =/ I got no electric type and only got 2 fire types, Chamander and Vulpix.

Well it seemed to be the same way in the original games when it came to fire and electric types. Plus with it being the first gen there weren't too many of them to choose from in the first place for the most part.

I bet it'll get exciting if they get around to adding more generations worth of pokemon!

The app has potential to much more. They could add next gen, or allow battles between people, or battle wild pokemons, so much they can do :)

it was released here today for the iphones! So I re-downloaded it and then the servers got all DDOS'd and were down all day while I was going to try and get some more pokeballs at a pokestop :(

At least now I can use the shop xD When it'll work again..

Might just have been to many people on the server and not a DDos attack. They did release it for like 20+ countries today, so yeah XD

I heard it was 16 countries they released it to, and then also saw reports of the DDOS attack, claimed by a group named PoodleCorp or something similiar. But I dunno, it's hard to know what's true and what's not on the internet!

I read you can control the eeveelutions by giving them certain names, you might want to look that up.

I actually never thought about how Eevee evolves in Pokemon Go... o.o

I bet there's a ton of people with one eeveelution just being like "WHY."

...Though I'd be happy with a ton of flareons. :D

My phone can't be updated. My current Android version is 4.2 and Pokemon Go requires at least 4.4 to be installed.

I missed a Cloyster yesterday due to the server-hiccups the game keeps experiencing still. Hopefully that'll smooth itself out soon :D
Going into town tomorrow afternoon, going to be spinning on ALL the pokestops!

People on Tumblr have been talking about catching Mewtwo or some kind of special event or something that's allowing people to catch mewtwo.

I know a lot of pictures of uncaught pokemon nearby are fakes (I've seen enough of Mewtwo's official art to be able to tell that silhouette is not a 3D image guys come on...) but I've seen supposed captures of him too. Anyone got a mewtwo?

When I looked it up I got an indication that it seems to be a hoax, and what eeveelution you get is purely chance and chance alone.

A lot of people are saying the name-trick works. I don't know, I evolved 3 eevees and got 3 different, so I never really needed to use the trick. But the thing is you need to make sure the name sticks before evolving. So close the app down completely after the namechange, and then open it up fresh, check the name and then evolve :)

I think that Mew and other rare Pokemon will be given through special events like ingress's anomalies. What are the best guides out there for a new player?

I finally got someone to loan me their cell phone to try this and I'm stuck on the starters. x.x How do you choose one? I see the three starters and the thing saying 'catch a Pokemon' but nothing I do seems to have any effect.

The best tip I have learned is to Spin the pokestops. I didn't know you had to spin them to get the items, I thought they were just given. So I ran out of pokeballs pretty quickly.

Lurhstaap: You need to touch the starter you want. This can be a little tricky depending on what kind of phone you have and the size of the screen compared to your fingertip. But touch the starter you want, and then swipe your finger upwards to toss the pokeball. If you hit the pokemon, it'll go into the ball and start to wiggle, if you are succesful it will be caught, otherwise you will need to toss another ball at it :)

I did, but nothing happened. Turned out the problem was the phone's GPS stuff was turned off. I was able to get my starter once I fixed that.

Of course, then I discovered a much bigger problem, which is that the person whose phone I was borrowing doesn't actually have a data plan, so it only works within range of our home wifi or public wifi... meaning I basically didn't get to actually play since there's no public wifi within a reasonable walking distance for me (I'm disabled) from my house, and our wifi just doesn't reach far enough for the gameplay to really work. It dies well before I'm even close to any Pokemon. I know they move around, but my only option is basically to sit around and hope one wanders into range, and since it was a borrowed phone and I can't just monopolize it for hours, that's not really feasible.

So I basically did not get to play in any meaningful way - just enough to make me REALLY wish I could! -.- I envy all you guys with smart phones.

Internet should be a staple nowadays! Where's some Wifi-signal towers that work like those cellphone towers?

I can't remember the site now, but I found a site while randomly browsing reddit a few days ago that showed a live feed of pokemon appearing on the map of the world.

...There are eevee, alakazam, charizards, and things like that around where I live. I WANT TO PLAY SO BADLY.

Try your local library, if you can cadge a lift from someone. It should have wifi and Pokemon.

I have days I don't leave my house, I just sit by the computer with the phone up and then drop an incense. The incense lasts for 30 minutes and I can catch a good amount of pokemon before it ends :)

Where do you get the incense though? It sounds like that's the sort of thing you have to work up to rather than being able to do right from the beginning.

I think I got incense from various pokestops, they are really rare however.

I caught a Dragoran with 241 cp o-o outside my house at my parents place

Edit:
I meant Dragonite, pardon me
