So I got a pidgy with a dragon attack and I guess I should sacrifice all my other ones to it, right? Or just feed the one that's already strongest?

Basically gonna feed him every ratatatata that I see until he's in the top percentile

And this might be the face of your new god unless I send him to the candy factory and feed him to a slightly better one.

As someone that lives in rural Florida... We ain't got shit out here to catch.
I live in rural Virginia..my town is .93 (that's less than 1, yo) square miles in size, and has like 1200 people. I'm still catching stuff.

Though granted, a lot of that stuff is pidgeys and rattatas

I think he means truly rural, as in middle of nowhere. I'm in the same boat. Nothing at all near my house. I can only play it when I'm in town.

Bah..that should bewhere the most wild pokemon are :)
Yeah, it's kind of a bummer. It's built on ingress though, which is an urban exploration game. I really hope they do expand it to rural areas. It would be fun to play it on hiking trails or in the woods.

So for someone who is out of the loop...This is an app on your android phone that allows Pokemon to show up in camera mode and then you catch them, yes? But you don't battle them or anything?

And there's trespassing involved, potentially?

It's a separate app that uses the camera, and there is fighting (but don't ask me, I'm only level 4 and apparently you can't battle 'till level 5?). You walk around looking for points of interest, where you can pick up pokéballs and assorted stuff, and occasionally you'll get a signal there's a pokemon nearby....which you then go into the camera AR whatever version to try and catch.

You can battle them, but only at gyms I believe. There shouldn't be any trespassing, unless you consider wandering around in public parking lots trespassing.

Some businesses have even caught on and will toss out pokemon lures to get people to spend time there.

I just walked around for about an hour in my neighborhood, and saw one PoI in a closed-off park, one in a pay-to-enter part of the subway. And a few of the pokemon I saw were too far off the street into private property to reach from public ground. I can easily see this leading to people going into yards, hopping fences, whatever.

I've also seen pictures of people finding pokemon inside houses or in a hospital room, and stories about kids knocking on doors to ask if they can go catch the pokemon in the homowner's backyard.

It's actually the most interested I've been in Pokemon, but think it would be a tad weird for a 50 year old due going about town looking for digital monsters. No, not THOSE digital monsters!

So instead of roaming all over town like a weirdo just go to the Pokestop nearest to you and set down some incense. Nothing weird about a 50 year old dude hanging out in a public place and setting out "lures" to attract activity to him, right?

...also, what's the deal with eggs, can you only purchase them, or can you find them at Pokestops and such? I haven't gotten out with it too often yet. This would finally come out when Yoshi doesn't feel like walking so much anymore. :(

Incense follows you around, lures stay in place....Though I don't know how effective Incense is. And it'll only give you the normal types for the area.

On the map, you have a visual animated radius that you can catch pokemon in.

When sitting in my desk, near the front door, my radius covers the neighbors on either side, and the park across the street.

You should never have to ask to go in someone's back yard to catch pokemon unless their back yard is yuuuuge[DOUBLEPOST=1468271065,1468270939][/DOUBLEPOST]

2 kinds of eggs in the game: Lucky eggs, which give a 2x experience boost for 30 minutes, and pokeon eggs, which hatch. You can buy lucky eggs (though I've also gotten them occasionally when leveling up), and you get pokemon eggs from pokestops.[DOUBLEPOST=1468271133][/DOUBLEPOST]

Incense seems to give you a "free" pokemon (one that isn't on the map for everyone to see) every 3-5 mins.[DOUBLEPOST=1468271417][/DOUBLEPOST]Oh, so I'm playing team mystic (blue) and every gym in my town was blue.
Woke up from my nap to see this:


Oh, it's on bitches. Don't you dare bring that yellow shit to my neighborhood.

:D

So will my pokemon get batter if I fight a dude or only from stuffing candy down their dumb faces?

you can't fight people. Only gyms. This does not improve your pokemon, but does give you xp.

If you are the same team as the gym, you can put a pokemon in the gym if there's room. This gives you a daily coin/stardust award. The stardust *can* be used to improve your pokemon, so I guess this is an indirect benefit.
