Ok, here's something I just now realized. Rowlet isn't just a Grass-type Pokemon that happens to be based on an owl. It's actually based on a grass owl: a relative of the barn owl found in Japan. Clever!
Life can seem a challenge. Life can seem impossible. It's never easy when so much is on the line.

Is anybody else playing the Pokemon Go mobile game? It's taking over my life.

I'm not, but my nephews are really into it. I, they, and my brother walked around the neighborhood looking for Pokemon on it and caught a few. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that capturing requires some actual skill, but nothing prohibitive -- even my littlest nephew (eventually) performed a successful catch.

I've been playing on and off when I have time. It's quite fun I do have to say though I am a bit behind most other people I know playing. Getting better Pokemon though now so that helps. Caught a nice Venomoth at the park across from my house this afternoon and nearly got a Tauros but no matter how good the throw, he would break out and ran off after a few tries.

All in all it's good fun, though I'm finding the increasing insults I've been on the receiving end of from friends of mine that are Team Valor are becoming quite distasteful. (I'm Team Mystic) It's one thing to joke around, but it's another thing to be a complete jerk over it. It's just a dang game.

I don't have a phone that's compatible, so I don't have the game personally, but considering what I've been hearing on the news, about the car crashes and various other problems, I think I stick with the console games at the moment, in preparation for Sun and Moon.

Lord knows I have enough games I haven't completed all the way. :)

I tried, but it proved to be extremely buggy and it crashed at the drop of a hat, even when I had no other apps open. The whole "full and complete access to my gmail account, including read/write privileges and the ability to edit, delete, compose and send mail" thing was also a deal breaker (yes, you can revoke those permissions, but in my case that made the game non-functional).

Same in my country, but many people had already downloaded it illegally anyway and been playing it a lot, lol.

Is it really that good?

Apart from it being buggy as hell I can never seem to get the servers to work for me. I also heard all the stories of people running into incoming traffic because they didn’t pay enough attention to their suroundings.

I’m actually impressed with how far the game’s influence is felt the National Basketball Assositation is even backing it.

Well, apparently it's dominating social media to a degree, so I'll admit I'm a bit jealous, but I don't see the point of trying to collect 151 pokemon all over again when I already have done the same thing for 721 pokemon, except the events that haven't been released yet like Volcanion.

Plus, the only pokemon I would really want out of the 151 are Mewtwo and Porygon, and I already have them. :)

I mean I’ll probably end up just going back to the DS games at some point anyway.Apperantly there have been a lot of security concerns brought up about the game as well, I’ve also read sevral articals about pedofiles using the game to attract children to ”play with them”.  :uhh:

Teens shot while playing Pokemon Go

Sex offender caught after using Pokemon Go to target child

Plus the Chinese military are afraid Go-ing soldiers will reveal military secrets, and if my experience today was anything to go by it won't be long before the first Go player end up under a truck (they're even worse than other mobile phone addicts walking on the street).

Yeah, my whole Gym is playing Pokemon GO LMAO. These buff dudes are using it! It's amazing. Although it seems there are a lot of incidents associated with the app. You gotta watch where you go.

Well, because of bugs I haven't been playing much. Have met some pretty cool people randomly out walking around playing as well which is nice.

My friends have toned down their insults since i called them out on them, now it's just lighthearted joking.

Locally however we are having incidents of Team Valor people tagging structures that are near gyms. (Graffiti) There was a ton found at the stadium of my former High School and more found covering a sidewalk intersection elsewhere. I do not care what team people are on, but engaging in destruction of property is not ok.

I have a Windows Phone (don't ask...), so I wouldn't be able to play Pokemon Go unless I upgraded to an Android or iPhone. My boyfriend thinks I should, since it would get me walking and all. I guess if I'm going to be addicted to phone games anyway, I might as well be walking, too. I just have to come to terms with the idea of losing all progress on the titles I've been playing, since I don't think that sort of thing can transfer across OSes.

Kinda random but, do we think the Diamond and Pearl remakes will happen after Sun/Moon on the 3DS - or most definitely on the next handheld? I am tempted to sell my 3DS this summer (but really wanna play those remakes)
