I don't know if you guys know about the new Pokemon app, but it allows you (with the use of GPS and Internet and your device's camera) to capture Pokemon in real life!! I caught my starter, a Bulbasaur, not too long ago and I'm hooked
I want a prequel on DK's life where we find out tht he used to be a salesclerk at Best Buy.

I think there was a thread already, but I can't bother to find it so you're fine.

I can't get this because I have a Windows Phone and that just pisses me off.

One of the PokeStops I passed by was a Giant tooth. Too bad it was too far from where I was in the car.

I can't catch the fossil pokemon like Metapod and Kukuna.

The things that are stops and gyms here are lowkey ridiculous, like a park, a K-Mart, a church, and oddly my friend's house

Why does this game only have a user score of 5.7 on Metacritic?

probably because the servers have been down a lot lately due to so many people downloading and using the app at once

I can't really blame nintendo though. this is their first time doing something like this and only their second mobile app overall. it was bound to be buggy in the beginning, but it'll get better soon.

Alright so my dad got this on his tablet for me and that is why he is the greatest dad ever.

My current Pokemon are as follows:
Squirtle
Zubat
Caterpie
Weedle
Venonat
Pidgey

And there also appears to be a Nidoran Male and a Slowpoke in my backyard, but I didn't go looking because it's midnight.
