You didn't pull a gun on somebody and demand "all them right purty pokey-mans" did you?

 

Because if you didn't, you weren't really in it to win it.  

 

Unrelated:  you can find pokemons in jail cells.

Nope no guns.  Though I have had tdhe police called on me.  Evidently stopping across the street to catch Pokemon in some residential areas can me confused with casing houses for robberies.  That and I was getting up 5 minutes early to take gyms and hit pokestops before going to work.  I needed that sleep dang it!.  Though I have enough rebar in my building at work that my GPS freaks out and I'm able to hatch 10 to 20kms worth of eggs sittimg at my desk.

I could have sworn the naming trick still worked for the new eeveelutions that have been come out? 

 

They do, but it is the implications of this that bother me. If they’re willing to start locking pokemon evolutions behind the store, it is just a matter of time before they put more and more behind it to make more money

 

It is annoying enough to have region exclusives and event-only pokemon that I will never get, annoying enough legendary Pokémon are pretty much impossible for me since they A) require a giant group of people to beat and B) have such an absurdly low catch rate I gave up even trying because it was such a waste of time when they run away 15 raids in a row, but now I have to either pay real money or get lucky to find a blue gym in my red-dominated town or spend real money?

 

The game has gone from one I can enjoy alone to one where I am constantly finding myself excluded from the goal of the game ‘catch them all’, due to lack of people thay I know that play to get legendaries, a inability to travel internationally to get event only and exclusive Pokémon,  and now a unwillingness to fork over money and support this awful practice and encourage them to lock more things to the store

 

i think it is best if I just dump the game and walk away, it has been more than a year since I actually had any fun in it. Really I stopped having fun once gen 2 came out

If anyone is out there and playing that's not friends with kangaroorex, I need a new friend for one of the objectives.  PM me if you want to exchange friend numbers.

I stopped playing it most of a year ago when the job search got really busy. I stopped Ingress as well.
I'm not sure if I'll go back or not at this point.  I know the park across from work should have a ton of stuff but I haven't been missing it too much.

I'll probably get back into it in the spring, I suspect.  Too cold and icy to be playing it actively right now. 

 

This. I'm primarily motivated by finding new pokemon, which I can't do unless I walk around outside (gee thanks upate that removed the only spawn point near my house <_<). My lungs emphatically dislike the cold dry air, doubly so right now since I got a cold over the holidays, so I'm essentially stuck indoors until the weather warms up. Sure I could drive around, but not only is that far less fun and efficient, it really defeats the purpose lol. 

 

I was opening presents pretty consistently for awhile, until my bag was constantly overflowing and it became a nuisance to deal with. I really hate throwing out pokeballs since I've spent so long scrounging and saving up for them... :unsure:

 

Huzzah!

I hate throwing them out as well, because your bag gets crammed full, but the Pokeball Plus only uses regular pokeballs for some reason....   Hey, it's a terrible controller for Let's Go Pokémon but it works well enough when you're out and about for a walk... ^_^

In my absense my girlfriend and kids convinced me to play again. I had only played for a couple months after it first came out. I will say it has come a long way since and I finally finally find it enjoyable. To the point that I make sure to check in on it several times a day now.
