Loads of groups of people down Southend seafront last night, all looking at their phones. This game has really taken off, hasn't it?

So is it worth only keeping one of each Pokemon and transferring duplicates do you think?

Not entirely sure, you also can send them to a gym controlled by your faction, to defend it from other factions and if you have ones in gyms, they seem to earn you money. I get rid of all the very low CP ones I have in abundance.

I think you have a limit on how many items and how many pokemon you can hold, as the shop sells bags to hold extra stuff. So you need to do something with them

I'm far too old to use technology to look for mythical cartoon characters, in odd locations, for no purpose whatsoever. ridiculous.

Went to Gullivers world today with the kids, quite a few stops in there, and actually quite a good place to use a gym since the only way you can get in is by paying. Got a couple of new Pokemon as well!

This is a proper battery killer. I went out for a run earlier and grabbed some Pokemon along the way. Down from 90% to below 20% in about 45 minutes on a 6s!

I've been out for 2 1/5 hours with my son collecting Pokemon this morning, lots of fun for the both of us (good exercise for me too).

When you have multiples is the idea to 'transfer' the least powerful ones? Game could do with a tutorial!

Had a fruitfull time at my local park, caught six Pokemon (beat a small child to one), but had several app freezes and GPS problems.

Saw many groups of people just standing around various statues staring a their phones, like Pokezombies.

I had a walk round my local area, I can see why it would be good if you wanted to abduct kids as they kept coming over to me and asking me how to play it properly. It really needs a decent tutorial, I now understand the gyms I think

But the constant crashes are getting tedious, especially when you use an item, I'm glad I didn't pay for them.

Problem is you don't know it has crashed necessarily, as it keeps tracking you, just not letting you click anything. Means you can't really walk with it in your pocket.

My LG G4 has had a godawful time trying to log in connect to GPS for the game, I'll keep going for next week, but if it's always like this, the game is not worth keeping with (for me).

Bluewater shopping centre is mental. There are so many pokestops and gyms and today there were several lures attached to the numerous pokestops. However Pokemon were appearing and disappearing at will and the game crashed every other capture or pokestop interaction

It's a pretty poor game really.

I'll give it a week or so but if it continues as it was today it's a total waste of time (well, more of a waste of time than it already is). It hung every other time I tried to catch one, if not more often.
