Default Pokemon GO (Android/ios) | 2016

I'm actually kind of hyped. I hope it isn't bogged down with micotransactions but it probably will.

theres also this lil thing (being developed by nintendo) called pokemon GO plus, can be used to allow you to continue playing without looking at your phone, it lights with an LED light and vibrates to alert you a pokemon or event is nearby

The collecting aspect is pretty cool since it's basically geocaching with a ton of people.

I have a feeling the battling will be very underwhelming though so I'm not really interested until we get more details on that.

Im super hyped. The only thing that worries me is the fact that microtransactions are confirmed. No more healing your pokemon for free, *****.

I'll admit, this actually does look pretty cool. I probably won't play it, though. The trailor really makes it seem like they are directing it towards more of an older audience. It also seems like a good way to get people outside and moving. Although in theory it seems like a good way to unite people in realtime and to have fun, I kind of get the feeling that it will actually just be a bunch of people staring at their phones and pokeball watches, which isn't really totally exciting. For those of you who are interested in this though, I remain optimistic that it will be fun.
Currently playing: Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, Story of Seasons, Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright, RF4.

Niantic, the developer, in a press release said that they're getting about $20 million in investment money for this. Wow.
