Pokemon GO! (Now available in the UK on iTunes/Google Play - links in first comment!!)

The mobile game is out (but not really in the UK) (but now it is!)

Who is playing it? Level 6 at the moment, yet to fight at a Gym yet!

What team are you? Red, Yellow, Blue?

Don't really fancy walking around in the hunt for mystery pokeymen.

I have been playing it all afternoon rank 3 and have a gym at end of my road it is a little strange that I keep walking around the block trying to find Pokemon lol

I got it on iOS by setting up an aus account then downloading it to my phone

Yeh I have one by my house but far enough away that I actually have to leave the house.. Servers so flakey at the moment though!

Just went out to a pokestop and then the servers went down just as I got there. Tried reloading a few times but nothing. Annoying. I also caught an Eevee but then everything froze and when I force quit and reloaded, I had no eevee

Servers are up and down constantly. Keep having to re-login with Google.

Got mine from the US Apple Store

Took down my first Gym leader today as I was moving through a train station. Didn't get a chance to claim it as it zoomed on through

Servers so flakey still. How is everyone levels ?

I've got a walking route planned on my area, just waiting for my phone to fully charge before I leave on my poké adventure.

Am currently level 6. Walked 2 miles to my nearest gym last night, didn't realise you needed to be level 5 though, and I was only 4 at the time

The GPS tracking thing isnt really working for me...

Just going out for a walk to claim a few gyms and about 20 pokestops and hope to hatch 1 egg

Went out this morning and caught a pretty good Fearow; going to attack and join one of the two gyms near me today.

Wandering around St Albans shopping with the Mrs yesterday and saw a Squirtle so had to catch that in the middle of a busy street.

Level 6, been using it on and off for the past 3 days; found a good guide here.

Not sure how to get your level up quicker though, I just keep catching pretty much everything I see and either transferring it or using the candies/stardust thing on them to get their levels up.

God the game release has some glaring helpful omissions doesn't it haha. Fought my first Gym battle and won, but didn't want to assign my highest ranked Pokemon to it as it stays there forever. Like the Nights Watch or something.

I didn't realise it stayed there.
No way to get them back? Even after the gym gets defeated?

Yeah once defeated it comes back but most have the hp glitch

I should probably stop transferring all my doubles then.....

Most of the gyms near me have pokemon in the 400+ range, the ones I'm currently holding are all under 200 so far:

Was going to wait for the official release on iOS store but it hasn't arrived yet apparently server issues are really bad, considering Niantic are a subsidiary of Google Alphabet it's a serious cockup on their end)

Servers are great for us in the UK up until the late afternoon when all the Yanks wake up.

Argh. Ffs. I'm a grown up. Why can't I put this stupid game down?

The Tesco in Leigh is actually a pokemon gym spot, which i find funny. Can imagine a Snorlax eating all the food there

My two local Gyms are actually Pokemon Gyms as wells as two Churches (Can imagine their Weekend Mass will get a bit of a boost).

I've seen about 8 near me and a stupid amount of Pokestops on the way and around work in Zone 1.

I can imagine that the Gyms and other Pokestops are just the most active/biggest areas on Google maps.

Be careful if it sends you to a natural water source....

you may find more than you bargained for !

I've just been out for an hour with the kids. Caught quite a few. I was pretty surprised to bump into two separate 20-something couples (no kids in sight) hunting too!

Someone trying to take down my local Gym, 25 metre away... So just paused the game to go out and make sure they know this is my turf haha.

So glad I have a dog as an excuse to wander around at night.

there is a gym in my local primary school, which is fine on a sunday but worried about how it will look on a school day with all the adults hanging around with their phones pointed at the school.
Here is my deck at the moment

Thanks. I gave up trying to scroll past the big ass image in comment #20.

I will remove my previous comment.

Doubt I'll bother registering a new US Apple ID but I'll be grabbing this when it gets released here!

My best one is a CP460 Pidgeot. I have an Eevee that is 2 candies away from an evolution which will be interesting.

I'm level 7 but haven't fought a gym yet as none nearby. All my pokestops are a drive away too. Bit frustrating.

It is really simple. But Yeh I would love to think a release is imminent considering its been out for almost a week everywhere else.

HI,

I have OCD so the thought of running 2 itunes accounts hurts my brain.

If i download from the US apple store, when the UK version is released can i continue my progress (is the account linked to something?) or is it all linked to the itunes account?

just missed a Hitmonlee 355 CP recalimed 2 gyms
