Pokemon Go at the moment is mainly walking around collecting them. Eventually you are going to be able to trade them and battle with other people I believe.

At the moment the cast is just the original 151 Pokemon, but eventually it will likely expand to the 700+ we have in the series to date.
But how do you collect them?

Think of it like Corbyn selecting a shadow cabinet.

I downloaded it after watching someone stream it to 50,000 people on Twitch.

So much shit in Canary Wharf, saw like 5 lures on my walk to lunch. Remember it's a kids game though.

Nope, this game is crap if you don't live in an area that has a decent signal. Just did a half hour walk to the actual gym, was checking the "nearby" pokemon on the way, one was 2 paws away from me, then all of a sudden disappeared and never even showed on the map which direction I had to walk. Everything else was 3 paws away from me (which I assume is 300 metres) but never appeared on the map so I didn't know where I had to walk in order to capture them.

Am I doing something wrong? Also, can I just switch my phone to standby and leave it in my pocket in the hope that it will sound an alert when I'm near one?

The app has to be open. Putting it on standby shuts off the GPS and app interaction (at least on my phone).

It's creepy. I don't like it. I have a vision of a world in a few months time where all everyone does is hunt virtual pokemon on their phones.

What happens if you go somewhere to capture one and someone is already there? Can you both capture it, or do you have to grab their phone and throw it to the floor in some post brexit apocalyptic madness?

I wondered this, whether or not they are spawned globally and their locations stored on a server, or just spawned on your device and if someone else was there they wouldn't see it on theirs.

I have no idea but due to not having the luxury of 3g or 4g in Tiptree, I just did another half hour round trip walk to pick my youngest son up from school, on route my phone bleeped and told me there was a Pidgey or whatever it's called, I threw a pokeball at it, then the phone began to load, and load and load......ended up shutting down the app, reloading, eventually logging in and low and behold, didn't capture it.

Waste of time!

Pro tips:

If you're sitting at your desk, leave the phone on and your avatar should move around still and accumulate distance travelled. In 4 hours I have travelled 0.6km without moving.

This is especially handy if you are incubating an egg. Got three on the go at the moment, 2 x 2km and one 5km one.

Also, let off an incense bomb and pick up any strays that pop up. Captured a 170 CP Fearow (took 6 pokeballs to capture), a Spearow, Paras, Bellsprout and Pidgeotto.

All without moving from your desk.

It does bring back memories of pokemon red when I was 7.

No doubt they'll add more generations soon and companies like Starbucks will be paying to make all their shops Pokestops.

I think the plan is to eventually expand beyond the original 151 Pokemon. I don't think you can catch the legendaries yet though. They are being saved for "events".
