Believe it or not people have nothing to do in life and need things like this to stimulate them. We used to be a people of making things with our hands and being out in nature now we are tied to computers and phones and need the next best app to tell us how to have fun. It really is sad if you think about it.

I do not play this game. I do not have time to walk around looking for fictional characters during my day. Not saying that anything is bad about it but it seems like a mindless game.

Has actually become annoying here @ my store . Sure more traffic but more like a zombie apocalypse just there all on there phones generates zero dollars!Before many would see how disconnected kid are these days do to smartphones, social media apps. They've become so socially awkward and now with this Pokemon app it has exacerbated that issue.

Do you have to keep your phone on (which I've been doing) or can you put it to sleep when playing? Like when I'm walking around to hatch an egg, my phone is awake the whole time and I'm wondering if I have to leave it on or can I hit the sleep/wake button to save some battery?

If you are over 20 and play this game, you need to get a life. If you are male over the age of 12, and play this game, I weep for your future.

I hear a lot of people complaining about others going on to privet property. It is new to a lot. My husband did beta testing on this game and we also play ingress. These two games go hand in hand. But I think it is only because then game is so new and exciting to so many. I have never gotten a complaint from anyone when playing ingress. Even the police leave us alone. I feel when the newness is gone no one will even notice we are still playing. Just please remember, Everyone BE SAFE AND AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS!!!!!

But are black people among the millions playing the game? Or, does the recent news of yet more instances of police brutality with the deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling; as well as a polarized political climate which seems to be bringing out the racists from everywhere, make indulging in a past time such as Pokémon Go frivolous, especially for black adults?

I play this game and love it. It helps me to get out of the house and walk. it's entertainment that incorporates physical excercise. I can't see anything wrong with that. Next time you go out to a public place like the mall. Just stop to look at how many people are actually playing the game. It's a cool past time.

Employees of the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA) will have to wait for their work shift to end before playing the popular augmented-reality game Pokemon GO. On its Twitter account on Saturday, the MMDA shared the memorandum issued on August 8, stating that"all employees of this Authority are directed to refrain from playing the said game during office hours or while on duty as this hampers the operation of this office, thus affecting the productivity of the Authority."

Apparently if you are caught cheating on Pokemon Go you can be banned for life. How awful is that? Ive heard of hacks but how do you actually cheat ?

My friends play it and it seems to bring us together. We were not spending much time together before this came out. Now we take walks all the time and we meet up and play Pokemon GO.

I do not play Pokemon Go and cannot find a good reason to start playing. I have actual real life things I do for fun I have no need to live in a virtual world.
