I'm not really impressed with Pokemon Go for a few reasons.
1: It's heats up my phone and eats up my battery, even in battery saver mode.
2: It doesn't explain how to play it. I had to watch videos online to learn the game.
3: I drove around Greenville the other day to get out of the house and find some Pokemon. I found none. Apparently Poke don't appear in parking lots. Found two gyms, but no wild poke. All the pokemon I have caught so far has been sitting at home. Except for a Scyther I caught at my real life gym. Apparently they expect people to hike into to the woods with real life beasties to find the Pokemon.
4: Kind of glitchy. Sometimes it freeze right after I catch a poke and I lose them. I tried to challenge one of the gyms, but my char kept running all over the place even though I was standing still, and it kept telling me "too far from gym".
5: This is likely intentional, but the amount of Pokeballs you have won't keep up with your level and you'll will have to pay real money for them eventually. Especially if you can't find any new Pokemon
Maybe I'm just doing something wrong. Once, I think the game was designed for use in Japan just like StreetPass. It's a small country and most people walk everywhere, whereas in America, unless you live in a big city, you'll probably have to drive to get around.
