Save me from myself

Jul 21, 2016 6:01 PM

I need someone to save me from myself. I downloaded pokemon go just to see what the hype was about. And today I did almost 13000 steps just looking for pokemon and pokestops in my neighborhood. Great concept to get people out and moving with a video game. I have to go 2 more kilometers to get my egg to hatch. Which means I went 3 after I picked it up which means my walk was at least 6 kilometers.

Lol!😂😂 I play this with my kid's every day! After dinner is done and dishes are are done we grab our phone's and start walking around the neighborhood and we even have the neighborhood kid's show up at the house at odd ball times and ask if I can come out and play!😂 It's sad when you are a higher level than your kid's are! Lmbo! Well I can't say I don't get my exercise in!😂

I'm sad that there really isn't anything in my area. I have to get to the stop 3k away to get anything. The whole walk home not a single one. And nothing at work. I'll have to go further next time i guess. Or go park somewhere and then walk from there. That's awsome that you are at a higher lever than your kids. I started last night so I'm really no where yet.

My area there really isn't much in the way of pokestops either I have to drive to the park as well, but it is fun lol!😂

I back on to a park and there are 5 nearby. It's just a newer neighborhood so there isn't much there.

Jul 21, 2016 6:51 PM

5 parks, no pokestops

I don't play but the news had a story that Verizon gives free data on Tuesdays to play it. I couldn't do the walking. I do good to get 15_20 minutes in, at a slow 1.4 mph pace. Lol 🐢

No.. gotobef you drsnk the Pokemon kool- aid.. lol put the phone down and walk to a recliner and rest. Don't put yourself in a flare over a Pokemon. lol

Apparently if you drive slow enough it counts towards hatching your eggs. 😁
I'm at work and there are no pokemon here so I am kinda taking a forced physical break from it.

Because of driving with game a guy ran into a police car because he was playing thst game.lol

Jul 21, 2016 10:17 PM

People can be so stupid. At least he didn't hit a pedestrian. I like being the passanger. Then i can play games

I think the game is a good idea it's just that the users don't use common sense. I think it's funny when they run into something. Shoes then right..

Jul 22, 2016 7:22 AM

Yeah alot of people don't have alot of common sense when it comes to this game, it even says when the game is loading BEWARE OF YOUR SOURNDINGS! Lol!

This week alone I have hatched like 4 egg's! Working on 4 more lol! Because it's been so hot here this week I have driven the kids around the neighborhood very slowly (live off back in the country) looking for Pokémon lol, maybe that is why I have hatched so many egg's this week. Our temperature has been in the triple digits so I didn't want anyone to get a heat stroke catching any Pokémon lol!

Ok..so I've got a few friends playing this game and I was gonna stir clear of it. But how is it for you guys . If u have to move around does it mean u can't play it when ur in a flare?

Jul 22, 2016 7:37 AM

Very easy for me put the game down when in a flair, as matter of fact all my doctor's appointment's this week that I have had and the traveling to Florida put me in a flair not to mention all the walking I did we while I was down thier house hunting and the hospital my dad was in, today is not a day I will be playing.

Jul 22, 2016 7:40 AM

I guess that's the common sense part..ha..sorry I blame the fog..lol...i think I'll still hold off a minute. But I must say I'm intrigued.

Jul 22, 2016 7:41 AM

Oh, I might add that they have what they call incense that you can use that will last for 30 Min's that will draw the Pokémon to you, so you don't have to go walking around to find them, they come to you. Sometimes you get a lot and sometimes none and sometimes a few. My daughter caught a slowpoke on one before! I couldn't believe it!

Jul 22, 2016 7:48 AM

The waking around is more for the egg hatching. Really busy areas like malls and high traffic parks will get you more pokemon if you just sit there. I haven't had a chance to go out yet but a coworker caught 50 at the mall yesterday

Jul 22, 2016 7:57 AM

You will especially if someone is using a lure module and the way you can tell that is by the a pokestop, is if thier is like pink like leaves falling all around it, those last for a half hour as well and you can only use those at a pokestop. It draws all nearby Pokémon to that pokestop.

I asked my granddaughter to tell her great grandfather (my dad) about their vacation trip to the coast. Mind you she is 10 and loves games & such. She looked at my dad's and said, "It was nothing special. It was just really boring because all we did was walk the trails looking for Pokémon." Lol my dad had absolutely no idea what she was talking about! Apparently she is not fascinated with this game. 😱
