So who else out there plays Pokémon Go? For that matter, who plays any of the other Pokémon games? What got you started? Why do you keep playing? Do you want to be Friends? (I need one more Friend to advance in the Celebi Special Research quest. Cheesy)

Why did I start? Curiosity. After reading repeated Pokémon references in several webcomics, and hearing the early hype around Pokémon Go, I just wanted to see what all the excitement was about. I have kept playing because, as I mentioned somewhere else, the game allows me to indulge my compulsion to collect things without clogging up my closets. Wink

Anyone else?

(I'm posting this in Off-Topic rather than Meta-Clubs because I just can't figure out how to make Pokémon relevant to Steampunk. Anyone willing to prove me wrong?)

Anybody? I know there's at least two of you out there, so there must be more.

My coglet started to watch Pokemon on TV. Saw that there was the game available to down load on posh phones etc. I got the game to get some exercise, and that's about it really.





I think that might be a couple of steamy ones

The magnetic one
The sphere (Voltorb?)

Oh...my old war wound? I got that at The Battle of Dorking. Very nasty affair that was, I can tell you.

I play Pokemon Go.
Tell us more. How did you start? Why do you continue to play? Which Pokémon is your favourite, or most Steampunk, or most coveted?

Also, may I PM you my trainer code?

That would be Magnemite/Magneton? I hadn't really thought about it, but I see your point. There's also Milotic, which has a lovely Art Nouveau flair, and the Alolan Golem looks like it has a missile launcher on its back.

Anyone interested in trading? I have a spare Mewtwo I could let go for the right offer.

My Dear Von Corax -

Mrs Marvel and I are avid anime fans
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

and we are also amatuer students of  yurei, onni, tengu, and other youkai, which are taken very seriously in Japan,
but without rugrats  we have only a passing familiarity with the pokemon franchise and the synthesized pocket monsters ....

I was casually aware of the pokemon go cellphone app that allowed users to hunt and find various pocket monsters in real-world places.

The positive side was getting lethargic folks outside and leading to getting some exercise (and sore legs lol )
    vs
the highly publicized but not often occurances of  the occasional "unintended consequences"  of tresspass and blindly walking into less than pleasant "stuff"

https://www.cnbc.com/2016/07/11/pokemon-gos-unintended-consequences.html
http://www.startribune.com/five-unintended-consequences-of-pok-xe9-mon-go/386496921/

I do actually wonder about how often folks were "lured into a mugging" , however....

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

so, what exotic places have you found these little beasties? are any hanging out under bridges or on top
of walls or roofs?

When Niantic released PokemonGO was a problem with this, but now not. Exotic places no need anymore to catch them. Around so many pokemons that I do not have time to catch them all.

My wife plays. She thought it was funny catching someone with a phone.

Luckily my smartphone phone will not pull this game. I'm very impressionable.

I , on the other hand , hunt Pokemon Hunters.

I usually use a net , but sometimes a mere tap on the shoulder and a polite
"did you know, you are trespassing on posted private property?"
is sufficient

Sorry for the indiscreet question.

And what a person threatens to stay in a foreign land?

Do you have the right to shoot him a little?
