ANyone else getting it? Launched tonight, but a rolling launch, so keep your eyes out for it.
Android: Pokémon GO - Android Apps on Google Play
iOS: HERE

I liked Ingress for what it was worth, but got in too late. I like the AR angle, and flashbacks to the GBA and the only Pokemon game I ever played.

Search for the APK and sideload. THat's what I, and many others, did.

So far it's fun. It's basically Ingress with Pokemon, which is cool.

Just cut a bloody swath through downtown Chicago, converting 3gyms to Team Blue.
Many a small, furry corpse was left behind.

The game is a train wreck i donno i feel there should have been more to it and that is is still very much beta... also you should get infinite pokeballs or at least explain in a tutorial fashion how not to suck on the throws... i hope the poke stops drop tons of stuff not digging the micro transactions i saw...

I had a hard time figuring out the throw. Considering there were no instructions.

I like the fact they let you choose from the original starter pokemon or you can hold out for a pikachu lol, at lv 4 so far but I find so few pokemon right now, there's next to nothin on highways or rural areas so unless I'm in a town/city not much pops up

There is a gym at the entrance to a park by me. At the entrance there is like a small paved area that could maybe fit three cars before you enter in the park.

I went today and 10 cars were all piled in at that spot :D:D:D

From what I've read it is basically in Alpha right now. Version 0.29 I think? There is no friends list or trading yet. You also can't battle someone you meet in real life.

I'm guessing thats in the pipeline though?

At level 5 you can go to gyms and either join one that is your same color and begin training or battle a gym that is a different color.

Found a pokestop last night and someone had set a lure.
Saw a couple dudes playing and more arrived as we were leaving.

Game is already huge. Buggy but huge and fun.

I know. So many people are out rhere playing this ot is crazy.

Definitely going to be the biggest mobile game ever.

I mean games like candy crush are fine for brainless distraction but this has people driving around and stuff. I have never seen anything like it.

This game actually looks neat, but I have a Windows phone.
So did I. But, the game came out the same day I got an iPhone! :) I wanted another Windows Phone, but the lack of apps and lack of support from Microsoft pushed me away. Plus, I'm on Verizon. The phone I currently have (Nokia 928) is the same exact phone I can upgrade to. 3 years later. W10 on Windows Phone was fine, but I can't get any new builds because my phone was excluded. :(

The game is awesome. i'm loving it. So many people out playing it. My wife even got in on it. It's nice to see young people, old people, hipsters, rednecks, everybody playing it. I've heard of people sparking up conversations with others just from this game. I have talked to strangers that were playing it, too. It's a real good social game. :)

dropped a 1050 jolteon and fucked a local gym lol
How do you get one that high? I just got a Joltean and he is only at like 460. Even if I power him all the way up I'm not sure he'll be that high... I'm also only lvl 8

Any reason I can't get the option to log in via google for this? All I get is the Pokemon Trainer Club at startup and they aren't letting new trainer club accounts.

*edit* Ok you can't put your age at 10 or under (so far) and be able to log in via Google.
