    I know this isn't for everybody but Pokemon was massive for me when I was growing up as I played it on the Gameboy Colour so have downloaded it to see what the fuss is about.

    Anybody else going to give it a go?

    Is it just in the play store or do you have to download from somewhere specific?

    I'd love to know if it is the same over there in the UK, but currently here in Germany you cann see hundreds of people gathering on those Pokemon hotspots.
    Been around for a walk at around 11PM yesterday and saw roughly 150 people crammed on one tiny bridge, all of them with their mobiles in their hands.
    Insane.

    I was riding through Coombe on my mountain bike and there were a middle aged couple pissing about with their phones. I reckon they were playing it.

    Riding my bike through Memorial Park yesterday, passed 7 or 8 'youths' in a row all of whom were walking looking at their poxy phones, including group of 3 together. Sign of the times, not a good one.

    All we need to do now is to lure them all to the edge of cliff.

    Pokemon Go servers down AGAIN leaving fans furious
    Pokémon fans have been left furious after the game appeared to crash less than 24 hours after it was reportedly hacked by Poodlecorp .
    The game, which has taken the internet by storm since its release earlier this week, has already been the target of criticism after its overwhelming popularity caused errors for many users.
    Earlier today, the game's official Twitter account posted : "The issues causing the server problems have been identified.
    "Trainers should once again be able to search for Pokémon in the real world."
    However many users on Twitter are being greeted with "failed login" messages.
    And those who can access the app are also experiencing errors while exploring the game's world.
    Twitter user Michael James claimed he had 'wasted' a lure power-up (an in-game item that attracts pokemon,) after his game crashed after catching a pokemon.

    I genuinely don't see why people have a problem with it. Ignorance if anything. It is getting people more active than watching a screen indoors all day.

    I was in Stony Stratford yesterday and as I walked past two young girls on their phone they said he has just walked on it or something I assume it was one of these Pokemon things as I had no shit on my shoe.
