Nope I don't have it yet but a lot of people I know have it. I'll try it out this weekend but since it's my day off today, might get it today. I would call myself a somewhat mediocre fan as I've played Leaf Green a few years back and enjoyed it.

From what I've heard, it chews up a lot of battery due to GPS also that the server goes down a lot, I would suspect flooding/overloading handling too many users

Has anyone here got it? What's your take on it?

Pfffft....grrrr... can't download it anyway [Mad] lol [Laugh] My phone has an Intel processor which renders it incompatible. Oh well, I usually upgrade around October so hopefully it's bigger and better by then [Roll Eyes] *Sound effect - wah wah waaaaaa... *

Ok so the app updated and now my phone can run it. Only had it for a couple hours so will give my feedback in a couple days [Smile]

I love it, been playing it in the UK since it was released elsewhere with the Android work-around. Great way to meet people - I work near the centre of town and every lunch I'm always meeting new people.
Also as a FF side note, great way to get unexpected glimpses of girls in their flip-flops as you're pretty much always looking down at the screen!

Ok, so my take on it. Of course by the international hype it IS highly addictive.

First off I wasn't a huge Pokémon fan as I was in my teens when the cartoon series aired in NZ but was only watching it because I used to babysit my 4-5yr old nephew who loved it. (That and Barney & Friends [Big Grin] ), I was more into Ninja Turtles and Transformers [Woot] . I've already stated that I've played Leaf Green and know a fair amount of 1st Gen monsters.

The game itself is Awesome, 1st week I played it constantly all the spare time I had. A few workmates downloaded it a week before me and were having alot of fun with it whilst I was sitting on the back burner/starting-blocks 'ready-to-go', contemplating on a new phone. After a week I started I caught up to them and in two weeks blitzed so far ahead they saw my dust over the horizon [Nana] lol . But I didn't play to try to beat them, I just enjoyed the game overall where at one point, I played close to 3hrs straight walking/driving around 6 Poké-stops which where in a 2km radius and 3 of them you could hit standing in one spot. The only reason I stopped was because my battery was at 5% . It doesn't use much mobile-data but it does chew through battery life like pacman coming off of a famine. For those who don't know, POKE-STOPS are places where you collect pokeballs and other useful goodies to use in the game.

I'm only at Level 19 with my highest Pokémon Vaporeon @ 1109CP (Combat Points). My enthusiasm isn't what it use to be and might slow after reaching my goal of level 20. Visiting gyms seeing a Dragonite over 2500CP same with an Arcnine well over 2k and seeing a Garados too just blows my mind [Thud] with trainers well into their 20s (level-wise)

I've just bought a power-bank 6600mAh but haven't used it to its capacity yet, however knowing that its there relieves the stress of battery life trying to find a wall socket to charge stuck in one spot.

Anyone else playing?

I play Pokémon Go for a couple hours everyday. Helps me to go outside, be more social (mostly for Raid Battles), and get some much needed exercise. The game does get very tedious and repetitive quickly.
