Pokemon is perfect for mobile devices. It's always been Nintendo's 'get out there' social franchise, kinda, sorta.
Well, it made perfect sense for old Pokemon games when you needed to be facing a friend to exchange Pokemons with a cable, and it makes perfect sense with Pokemon Go for obvious reasons.
But modern and "regular" Pokemon games nowadays don't have a real reason to be on handheld. Exchanging Pokemons can happen online and stuff...
Though yeah, as I said, I feel like they belong on handhelds only, just like they always did, but I really have no argument to defend that.

Well Pokémon is more comfy on a handheld. Gives you something to do during car trips. :P

aeTIos

But you need to walk or bike for Pokemon Go. Unless you're in a jam, then you could check out some pokestops while switching lanes. :P

But if they switch to mobile, they need to make controls intuitive, unlike those Square Enix RPG ports. Make it you can click the destination you want to go to, like MMORPGs

All my classmates play now. I, as usually don't though.
Haven't thought that it would be so hyped.

DJ Omnimaga

My issue with Pokemon Go is that sometimes you might not be willing to have the entire neighborhood to look at you with weird looks because you are spending 3-4 minutes starring at their houses or yard. If the game did not take so long to load on startup or had a shorter animation when catching creatures then that would not be a problem.

aeTIos

I'm sure they will be no less busy catching their own pokemon.

Nah, my neighborhood is full of old people who spend their entire days stalking other people for extra newspaper item submissions :P

Question: Why aren't our e-mail inboxes getting flooded with   spam that contains fake Pokémon Go account banning threats and asking us to login via a fake form if we don't want to lose our account? I was sure I would start getting those e-mails 17 seconds after the game came out.

Also I hope there isn't any landmarks in the northeast end of my city, because a newspaper once posted a Quebec child molester map that contained past and present ones and that part of the city had the bulk of it >.<

gmail probably filters em out.

But but freedom of speech D:

Kidding aside, I guess it's a good thing seeing how easy it can be to impress or influence kids. But yeah I was still surprised

Unicorn

Talking about kids, it could be a real problem with 8 year olds or so. They see this really awesome pokemon pop up or something and they sneak out of their house to get it, not thinking of the danger, and then the parents get super worried.



??? ??? ??? ??? ???

DJ Omnimaga

Yeah that's a serious issue. What I noticed is that sometimes you can catch the pokemon from several feet away, but kids don't think about that trick all the time.

Also servers were down earlier.

You say that as if it's a new thing.

And for me, they're still down.
Also Niantic is going to add trading and Trainer battles, and that'll be cool when it happens.
