I caught one yesterday in real life. I think it was a pokemon, anyway. It had a furry tail and was trying to run up trees. There's loads in the park. They just run about, eating nuts. Don't do well in air tight balls, though.

Candy Crush is, at face value, a kids game but it rakes in hundreds of millions for King and is played by people of all ages.

The good old game of Bingo at face value is a pretty childish game played by old people.

Etc.

Even so, you'd think that with a game this popular they would look at growing the interest of the brand with the younger generation and offer them a similar game that doesn't require the use of mobile data.

I can see what's going to happen, my wife and I are both going to have to hand over our phone's so they can go on the hunt for Pikachu!

Indeed its not aimed at kids, its aimed at people looking for nostalgia that have a bank card. Its a unique concept with an established market from decades, share prices have rocketed and the micro transactions will be mad. Nintendo and whoever did well.

Yeah I get what you're saying. My 10 year old wants my old handset for this reason... he has a tablet etc. but nothing with mobile data on it and I wasn't planning on giving him that at his age for reasons other than paying for loads of data each month which is reason enough on its own as it is

I think it's just one of those things that the younger children are going to have to accept, like not being able to play GTA V at ten years old, or watch horror movies, but an interesting point and one that may well be quite different in a few years time when we look back on it.

I had my first really awkward moment earlier, when I used a lure at a stop. Within minutes, a bunch of people had showed up.

Fortunately, none of us had any social skills, so we just stood around staring at our phones.

About 10 people, couple of youngsters, couple of people older than me, majority late 20s early 30s. A good few in suits, having dashed out of the office opposite (I work from home, used my lunch break).

Unsure if strange or not, but exclusively male!

Interesting social experiment, though - sitting on a street corner for a half hour, watching everyone walking around on their phones. I don't think this will be the world changing thing that everyone expects it to be, because ultimately we are all too lazy for this nonsense.
