Be cautious of where the game may take you...

... A Pokeball right on the live train track oO
that's a pokeball that would have been "thrown", and there's no reason why you'd walk towards it. pointless.
Thanks.
That's the end of that craze for me then, "This item is not compatible with your Device"

Anyone know why this is not compatible?

looking on the internet, you can put it on there if you install the APK from somewhere else (make sure it isn't one of the ones with malware first though) and apparently it runs well, i am going to have to install it on my daughters when i get in so i should be able to confirm then.
the AR bit doesn't work on it though so you would have to keep that off (you will see in the game)

I thought Pokemon was some obsolete relic from the 90s, then suddenly this appears and it's all the rage again. Shows what adding a bit of augmented reality will do to a franchise.
Caught about 7 Pokemon today in an hour walking to the pharmacy, but I saw a Raticate thinking "YES!", and as soon as it was in the pokeball and the "nice one!" appeared the game froze
At least you can switch AR off and just tap the Pokemon to make it catchable, to avoid the embarrassment of running and swinging your phone around looking like a pillock
the game freezes when you lose internet which is really annoying when you finally find something to catch.
I have 4G but the outside world doesnt seem to have it
The protip about walking around four times in the beginning to get a Pikachu was too late for me maybe others will do better?
I cannot create an account - how can I start the game as the only option I see is to signup or signin?
Go away
I can reach 2 Pokespots from my home. Hehe, that's the life
Well looks like there will be lots of people getting their phones stolen as they walk about with the phone in full view.

The only things children should have are muddy hands and grazed knees, not £500 smart phones. Not that they deserve to have anything stolen, but y'know... Maybe it's a good thing.... Those phones are stealing their childhood!

Well my 6 year old is on a 2g phone so won't be out there tracking Pokemon creatures as yet.
I suppose its a great way for children and parents to go for supervised walks together tracking down these Pokemon. Some excercise is better then none!

Do you have to catch them all ?



​Yes, it's a legal requirement, you gotta accept when you open the app and it can't be deleted until the pokédex is full. Good luck chuck.

Just keep it in your pocket! It vibrates when you're near, failing that just be a rock 'ard Pokemon trainer!
Thanks op, been waiting patiently for this, haven't actually been able to get it working yet. read some horror stories about malware infected APK files. Thanks again
