If it was the 8-bit era and someone told me we'd go from eating pills and chasing ghosts in a dark maze-like room to literally seeing pocket monsters projected into reality I'd need a moment to sit down.
Anyway, I have a Lumia and my ancient iPod stopped updating at 6.x, so for the moment I'll continue with awful touchscreen Street Fighter on dodgy marketplace emulators.
Kid: Oi mister, are you playing Pokémon? Me: Er, yes. Kid: Aren't you too old for games? Me: <10 minute rant about growing up with games and how owning every console ever made gives me more right to be a gamer than a 12 year old n00b.> Kid: Weirdo .... walks away
Also, I'm 30 candies away from evolving a Magikarp. Oh fuck yes.
A slight majority of a statistically worthless sample size agree.
From this point onwards I understand I'm basically into endgame territory - wherein the XP requirements for each subsequent level increase exponentially - so my interest in the game will likely shift from XP grinding to whatever new features are on the horizon.
Oooh I'm not far behind you, only another few thousand XP to go on lvl 19
My interest has died since they bollocksed up the Pokemon nearby stuff. If they release the new way to the rest of us then I'll get back into it hardcore, but for now I'm just a bit more casual about it. Still go for a Pokewalk every evening after work though
