I’m glad i don’t have a mobile phone…
The game just became available too in my country a few days ago. Seeing how popular it is, in the beginning I wanted to install it too, but I’ve changed my mind in the last minute and I resisted the temptation
When I heard of it for the first time, I thought it could be funny. People going out from their houses and from their Nintendo and sitting on the couch…at least they walk and run and go out. But seeing those recent viral videos where people go crazy with their phones in their hands in the parks or on roads… not seeing anything else around, this is indeed scary
Not interested in this crap in the slightest.
When you are wondering why your (Envato) sales go down, take a look why:

You can’t walk the streets of my country with your cellphone in your face looking for pokemons, they would steal you right away.
Where are you from? For information purpose safety travel
Brazil most likely.
Its a great game to play. But be advised its highly addictive
Hi John I am from Argentina. I was talking in a joking tone
Perhaps this won’t happen to you if you are in a tourist area in the Capital city on any of our States/ Province. But surely would happen in the suburban areas. My country is beautiful and pretty big.
Not all the places are safe or dangerous.Let me know if you ever come here, I ll let you know where to visit
You guys are hilarious!! I’m glad I’m not the only one puzzled by the craze!!
I caught this the other day. Those folks at Nintendo must be having a wonderful time right now
I’m already seeing that many people will die because of this. Running in front of cars and whatnot, because all they do is to look at the screen because it’s augmented reality. As if people crossing roads with their eyes at the screen texting and tweeting and Facebooking or whatever wasn’t enough. Sigh.
I don’t know if I need to laugh or to cry…
Oh nooo :(( You drive and hunt pokemons in the same time? That’s dangerous:
Argentina is on my wish list. Thank for information i’ll be in touch when i’ll be there
I know right?
Pretty accurate if you ask me.
I’ve found some article reflecting some of my thoughts about this global mania: https://vk.com/indy_vid?w=wall-83394484_28952
Personally my latest digital game addiction was Tetris of Spectrum era (ah, and Bomberman of Sega era, yes, it was! ). I never was interesting of pokemen meaning them just as a virtual sublimatic offspring of the culture where most people are not allowed to have real pets.
So I cannot judge about which part of described are true facts and which are conspirology insinuations.
I just translate a few quotes:
" - The developer of game is Niantic Labs, the inner start-up of Google.
- Niantic was built up by John Hanke, who also has founded Keyhole, Ink - the mapping project, bought by Google as a base to create Google-maps, Google-Earth, Google-streets.
- Keyhole, Ink was sponsored by In-Q-Tel venture fund, which is the fund of CIA officially founded at 1999,
By those Google applications was solved the full refreshing mapping of the whole planet, including roads, military bases, our towns, streets, cars, faces…
Only one “problem” was still not solved: how to look inside, into our houses, flats, rooms, undergrounds, hidden in leaves, caserns, state departments and so on…"
“Niantic officially warn you in game agreement: “We are collaborating with state structures and private companies and we are able to share with them any info about you and your children”…”
“Point 6: “our application is not able to make the “Do not track” request of your brouser”. So everything is tracking.”
“So if someone will be interesting in what is going on at any place of the Earth, it’s enough to set Pikachu somewhere near…”
I didn’t recheck the facts above, as I said, I never pet any monsters in my pocket (and in my balls) to grow.
But it’s not a bad food for boiling from that side of view, isn’t it?
Oh yes, exactly!
