only reason to pity him is for his choice in music and screen name

#52 3 years ago

I mean, I'd really LOVE to argue further with a misanthropic dickhead, but I'd rather swallow glass.

Enjoy your wonderful life of hating everything.

This Pokemon stuff is actually starting to look kinda interesting....

Ooof. Low Blow! Low Blow!

Quoted from KerryD:

OR I am waiting for the "give me 2$ and you can come in and get a "xx pokemon" advertisements.

already happening sort of...metro area bars/shops are advertising for Pokemon Go and placing lures at their business. Read an article some bar had 30% increase in sales. Hopefully a lot of this will blow over so the servers quit crashing and the actual nerds that like Pokemon can play without the amateurs

Did Dave Mathews ever make it right for that pleasure cruise boat his touring bus dumped sewage on?

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

you truly have unlocked the mystery of how to achieve human happiness and joy in life. Perhaps one day I'll be like you, wandering around in an idiotic stupor trying to catch virtual what-have-yous while spending all day trying to keep up with what the latest fad and all the 12-year olds in a "game" that requires absolutely no skill.
Pure bliss.

There's a local bar that did the same thing and I was SUPER DUPER EXCITED STOKED to be there because I'm a nerd and I have no life [/CrazyLevi] but I was very disappointed that I couldn't catch anything or collect any of the Poke Stop goodies because the game just would not connect.

The only thing worse than getting my feelings hurt by cyberbullies is not being able to play the damn game the way Jah intended!

Someone should make a pokeman pinball machine real quick. Bet it would kill on location.

If someone doesn't capitalize on this phenomenon (ahem - fad), I'd be really surprised. And disappointed.

JJP are you listening??!?!

My kid went with me to Dr. appt and played game along the way. We passed a strip club/marijuana dispensary: both PokeStops.

Hey, I'm not the one going with the "you find no joy in life" angle. Take it up with Corny!

#65 3 years ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

There's a man with joy in his life!
You know how I spent the weekend? hanging out with actual (non virtual) friends, playing pinball, and eating lobster at the Pintastic show. But hey, you win cause you were giggling with teenagers in the park.

How many times are you going to stop wasting time arguing with me? How does that glass taste?

Claiming that someone who thinks Pokemon Go is stupid has no joy in his life is the first refuge of the butthurt.

The real question op is....did you do the Easter egg and start with Pikachu for your starter...???!!!...............Joey

Funny, I could've sworn coming into a thread that you have no interest in just to proclaim how above it all you are was the first refuge of the butthurt.

Looks like they found a sneak peak of a future marketing deal with Mcdonalds

cue levi taking a shot at how shitty mcdonalds food is, because, well it is horrible and horrible for you lol

#70 3 years ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

I keep hearing this. Last I checked there's other ways to get off the couch and get out of the house.
Once this fad is over, is it back to the couch for good?

possibly, or maybe the next fad will come along. The fitbit helped get me off the couch, until 2 of them blew up on me and I won't buy one again. As long as it doesn't become an obsession and you walk into an open manhole, there's no harm in it. Except for the person who figured out to wait in ambush at an isolated location near a rare pokemon to rob people. I said hello to more people in town the other day hunting for pokemon than I have the past 2 months.

Delicious irony of him talking about people wasting time playing a game on a pinball site... and yet he has a dozen+ posts in the thread....
Sounds like someone is a bit jealous he's not been successful with his Pokemon hunting....

copied and pasted from a facebook group on how to evolve your Eevee:

"It would seem that there is in fact a way to force an evolution of your Eevee. The Eevee Brothers from the original anime were named Rainer, Pyro, Sparky and they owned a Vaporeon, Flareon and Jolteon respectively. If you nickname your Eevee either Rainer, Pyro or Sparky, your Eevee will evolve into that desired Eeveelution!
Sparky = Jolteon
Rainer = Vaporeon
Pyro = Flareon
I have tried it on a few Eevees and so have friends, and we've seen a 100% success rate. Feel free to give it a try and post back here with results!

Holy shit, that's awesome! My town is lousy with Eevees!!

I just downloaded this for my kids yesterday evening. They were out in the hot, hot weather hunting 'man. I'm okay with this. I made sure to tell them to 1. don't drop my phone and 2. don't run out in the street in front of cars.

Somerset Patriots To Host Pokemon Go Night, July 19
TD Bank Ballpark​ in Bridgewater has been recognized as an official Pokémon Go gym location​.

our local minor league baseball team has jumped on the bandwagon. someone in marketing is thinking..

#84 3 years ago

I'm loving the enthusiasm for this game. I hope the developers make updates to keep interest alive.

Hopefully they will make it more like the TCG for battles and other things. Looks like this is just the framework. If they make it too detailed they might lose the non-pokemon people I guess, which would decrease the server crashes .

What do hackers have against pokemon? Crazy kids.

#88 3 years ago

I dont always agree with CrazyLevi but he right this is a stupid waste of time chasing these Pokemon things. Full grown men walking around in a daze GEEEEEZ ! Someone is going to get ran over from not paying attention or get butt raped. lol

#89 3 years ago

I've been playing Ingress.. started pg too but haven't spent much time on it yet.
At this moment I still prefer Ingress

#90 3 years ago

I have seen some people playing Pokémon go that almost look like zombies

Pokemon Go = Buttrape.

I also don't always agree with my esteemed colleague Pinbum...but when the man is right, he's right!

I've been hanging out in my tiny suburban park at night this week with local players dropping lures. There are adults, teens, kids, couples, skaterboarders, old people, bikers... over 100 people on weekday nights. People are making friends, sharing food, drawing chalk Pokemon on the sidewalk, racing to anything interesting that spawns, and competing over the nearby gym. It's like a block party every day now. I can't believe how many people are playing this game. The weekends are going to be crazy.

#95 3 years ago
Quoted from DefaultGen:

Formerly creepy activities take on a whole new look with Pokemon...

Side note: How does anyone that does not live in a metro area play this? Without any population density nothing spawns unless you use lures etc. Would be nice if they'd change the spawn to be more even or random but maybe that's a data issue since they'd have to do it over the entire planet instead of "just" where people and their phones are?

#97 3 years ago

What bugs me is people that have the game going in waiting rooms for some damn reason and don't turn the volume off. It is like the normal sound rules with your phone don't apply if you are playing PG.

I walked around Walmart yesterday and every other aisle had a kid playing the game at full blast!

#99 3 years ago

It's Wal Mart, what do you expect? Remember K Mart 25-30 years ago? There was an MDC song in 1982 or so that began: "K-Mart hillbillies, Ignorant and Loud".

I was in new york friday. INSANE!! lures everywhere. At least 500 people in bryant park . People in groups running around chasing pokemon. I think 8 stops in an area the size of a football field. Then went to rockefeller center. Again, lures everywhere. Stood there for an hour and was catching pokemon I've never seen before every 10 seconds. Never made it to central park, which I hear is nuts too. Up to level 21. To get to level 22 is 75,000 points. noticed every starbucks usually had 2 or 3 lures going. Not sure if its a marketing ploy or just lazy people inside.
I don't really care what anyone thinks, I'm having fun, not sitting on couch, and met a few nice people. I watch where I'm walking. I step out of the way when catching one. Its free and I'm not hurting anyone. also lost 3 pounds
