    No & No, was never into Pokemon so not going to get sucked into the hype, I'm not really one for following trends anyway.

    The way this thing has taken over in such a short amount of time is truly unbelievable. It is getting people outside but I don't know if a big crowd of people with their premium smartphones all being gathered together is such a great idea. Outwith the safety notion though, this thing is absolutely brilliant in its simplicity and the way it has literally captured the world is amazing!

    Nope, I'm planning on using my Vita for remote play so I can still explore while I'm exploring on my bike or on a run. :nods:

    I heard you like exploration, so I put some exploration in your exploration so you can explore while you explore. Or something along those lines.

    I don't see the problem? They're having fun and it's doing no harm is it? :p

    All cool, but isn't it even the slightest bit weird view? More than 20 people in a very small area looking at their mobile phones and not really aware of their (real) surroundings?

    Considering it's already causing traffic accidents, massive gatherings and people running into hospitals and onto rooftops and graveyards to catch that stuff... I'll pass. The less I can be a part of this, the better.

    Sitting on benches in a park, how aware do they need to be? And how do you know they aren't?

    Considering the money spent on parks it's good to see them used.

    Millions of people play, don't assume because of ten idiots the entire user base is a bunch of morons. Crappy people play video games too, they even bully others, are you not going to play them so you're "not a part of it"?

    People have been trying to trespass on my offices grounds because it somehow turned into a pokemon gym. Cameras are not allowed to be used on site so people walking around looking through their cameras did not go down well with security at all. :lol:

    Never mind the fact that I nearly got knocked off my bike yesterday by a kid suddenly moving sideways right in front of me.

    Have seen plenty of people playing it without being tools but from experience so far, it's 50:50 and productivity at work does seem to have gone down... Made Nintendo billions but how much has it cost in lost productivity to other companies. :lol:

    No, I just wanted to give a bad reason I don't play it.

    I just don't like pokemon, never followed it, and I just find it silly to see people chase em all over the place. And like that, I'll have my things people will wonder wtf. Balanced :D

    The people who are causing trouble were going to cause trouble anyway, if they're stupid enough to not obey some simple rules and aren't able to cross the road, it isn't Pokemon's fault they get ran over. They'd probably get hit by a car anyway sooner or later lol. Also this app makes people walk and socialise more.

    It's not silly when people chase them, take my experience for example today, went to the park and I see near enough 150 people in this park playing pokemon go weird? No, the amount of socialising and chatting to random people is amazing. It's not as if they're mindlessly staring at their phones like they normally do with say WhatsApp or some form of social websites people were actually comparing pokemon, talking and what not.

    It's getting people into accidents because they are stupid. There are lot of ppl playing here (I'm in San Francisco right now), I'm playing it too, however, I turn it on when I get somewhere and have nothing to do/see. I mean, I can't even walk and send messages, let alone play a game.
    Things happen because people use it irresponsibly, same as a car... You are not going to ban cars because a couple of morons Street race, right?

    Saw a video of someone abandoning their car in the road to go and chase a Pokemon in New York I think. Quite funny.
