    Hey gang! With the advent of this crazy fun game, I thought we needed a post where we can share our pics from the augmented reality picture feature on the app! :3 Funny or exciting! Post away!

    My trip to the beach was awesome!

    The AR function keeps crashing the game when I use it while taking pictures or catching pokemon, so I've had to turn it off. But I did get some photos early on.

    Yeah, the AR is a battery suck too. But I pop it on if I think it'll make a good pic. XD

    There was a Wartortle that showed up on my radar today, and I walked for 30 minutes trying to track it down! Then the game glitched and I lost it :( (sorry it's not a photo, but I needed somewhere to convey my frustration)

    And the beach seems like a wonderful place!!

    I just sent out some pin mail, and found out that my post office is a gym! So naturally I named my vaporeon Stamp and took it over. Now we are the guardians of the mail!

    Nice! A friend loaned me a phone I can use on wifi at work - there are two pokestops but no gyms on my campus - so I've been playing for day or two and just found this big baddie:

    I'm still looking for a phone I can actually use on my network (Verizon - this one is ATT) if anyone has any leads!

    Man! Those are some great catches! With all the MagiKarp you're getting you'll have a Gyarados in no time!

    I've not been playing it myself, but I've been SUPER enjoying people's photos, videos & stories.

    My girlfriend teaches at a local college and it turns out there is a Pokemon gym in the college's actual gym. :D

    Another friend has a certain drawer where she keeps all her weed (it's legal here) and that's where she found a Weedle. :rofl:


    In another town, an animal shelter is letting kids walk dogs for free while they catch Pokemon:

    And something very cute: kids in a park scrawled chalk maps to tell other kids where they found Pokemon:

    I'm definitely enjoying everyone's stories and the pictures are beyond super cute!

    At the risk of asking a really silly question, how exactly does one play this? I've been hearing a lot about it from numerous sources including here, on the news, and my friends discussing it, but I can't quite work out what the objective is or how to play. I know what Pokemon is, but I never played it so I would say I don't have anything more than a passing familiarity with it (and that comes from listening to my friends who do - or did - play). I'm considering downloading the app/game, but I'd like to know more about it before I commit myself to another electronic-based hobby/habit.

    It's very easy to learn how to play! All the game really involves at this point is looking at a map to find Pokemon that might be in your area. When one shows up, you tap on it and "throw" (flick on the screen) a poke ball to catch it. You can then power up and/or evolve your Pokemon to your liking. Everyone has their own goal in the game, wether it be to "Catch them all" or become the strongest trainer in the area - aka being in control of the local gym - but there's no requirement to do that. At its base, it's just a very fun companion app to when you are walking or exploring the area!

    Yup! The game is what you make it. I mostly just enjoy finding Pokemon out and about. It's so satisfying. Hahaha!

    I just unlocked a Verizon phone today to use on the AT&T network. There are a lot of guides on how to do it online. If you need any help or tips you can PM me.

    It's not the unlocking that I need, that's not too hard. The problem is that not all phones will actually work on GSM and CDMA. The network I use is CDMA only, and the phone is GSM.

    I would love it if this one did! I did find a Galaxy S5 for wicked cheap because it has a terribly cracked screen. Anyone know how to fix em? ;)

    Just as soon as I can get my phone back from the kids and figure out how to take pictures at the same time I am playing I will send pics as well. Enjoyed looking at everybody's pics.

    With that being said I shouldn't complain too much. Just figured out a way to have them take the dog on long walks...lol

    Hatched my first 10K egg today, and here's what I got (he's been powered up):

    :D

    Also, if anyone has any authentic Samsung chargers for an S5 and/or an S3 I could buy, I would love you forever.
