Gotta catch 'em all
Haven't seen a thread on this - I KNOW SOME OF YOU ARE PLAYING, 'FESS UP. I should start by saying I am a moderately responsible 50 year old man, not a 12 year old, just in case you were wondering.
I missed out o the whole Pokemon thing in the 90's as I was a bit too old, my 11 yo son really loves the whole franchise, so although he doesn't have a phone yet I loaded the game up on an old Samsung S4 and we tried it. Some weird stuff happened :
- Within 24 hours the whole family, wife included, were cruising around Hereford in the car scanning for Pokemon (apart from me who had to drive, grrr)
- My son, who normally has to be forcibly removed from the virtual world started saying : "Can I go for a walk" and also "I need to get some extra kilometers in today"
- I hate exercise, but a couple of times I have had to go for a little 'walk' when something interesting appeared nearby in PG
I work for long periods in North Africa, in Egypt, there are no gyms or Pokestops in the Eastern Desert but there are Pokemon here! I have caught only 31 out of 132 Pokemon so far. It's interesting there seem to be a lot of snake-type here - I wonder if the distribution of Pokemon is location sensitive (no idea!) Best catch so far is my CP282 Primeape :
Install it and have a go, there might be a Meowth right next to wherever you are now - its a good laugh!
