Talking to POKEMONGO players.

PokemonGo. You surely noticed your feed and entire life has been literally taken over by Pokemon for a couple of days now. It seems after the release of PokemonGo  the world will never be the same again.  People hunting around at night, traffic accidents, couch potatoes walking forever to hatch an egg. With some countries in Pokemon fever and others anticipating just as eagerly, we asked a few PokemonGo players to answers to 3 questions.

Pokemon Go is a pretty new type of game, how difficult is it to play?

Pokemon Go is not too hard to play but it is broadly explained and many features of the game you have to find out on your own when you are actually playing it out in the real world.

There s been some incidents/ accidents reported, have you experienced anything of that type while playing?

Well I was actually walking near a lake near my house here in Florida and I saw an alligator swimming near by. If I wasn’t paying attention that could definitely be a dangerous situation.  Also while driving I once saw a Pokemon I wanted so I tried to catch it while driving ( bulbasaur ) haha never doing that again.

Have you always been a pokemon fan and whats your favourite pokemon?

ive been a fan of Pokemon since I was a kid but stopped keeping up with the games  after the first 251 Pokemon. So being able to play a game that includes so far only the original ones is really cool and nostalgic for me and everyone born in the 90s also. It’s very strange to see so many people in the real world playing this game everywhere I go.  My favorite Pokemon is Suicune

Pokemon go is not a difficult game to play, I would say anyone that can flick a finger can play it.

There s been some incidents/ accidents reported, have you experienced anything of that type while playing?

I have not experienced any accidents while playing this new game, but I have been aware of my surroundings but it can be distracting in high foot traffic areas because people want you to move and not be catching Pokemon.

Have you always been a pokemon fan and whats your favourite pokemon?

I started playing Pokemon at a young age and I always liked the style of the game and graphics, the designs and story I thought were cool, now that I’m older (23) it’s just like revisiting my childhood ha

But it’s interesting concept that cards are irreverent and you catch virtual things, much less reading. My favorite is Squirtle.

Pokemon Go is a pretty new type of game, how difficult is it to play?

It’s not difficult at all. The hardest thing has been getting on and staying connected to the servers. Beyond that, I only imagine it being hard to play if you have trouble being mobile.

There s been some incidents/ accidents reported, have you experienced anything of that type while playing?

I had to talk with my husband about how we can’t play while driving. He first downloaded it in the car and almost killed us driving around. It’s really fun to keep it open while moving through the city; to see where all the pokestops and gyms are, so that’s a bit of a problem.

Have you always been a pokemon fan and whats your favourite pokemon?

I’d completely avoided Pokemon all my life and never understood it. I’m a bit outside the age group of when it was popular. I mostly downloaded Pokemon Go because a lot of my slightly younger friends started playing and I was curious. If the game features of a superimposed world and actual real life movement weren’t involved I doubt I’d be playing it. I don’t have a favorite Pokemon yet. It’s more like,  “Oh, hey, there is a furry purple thing by that lamp post, I’ll be right back!” Twice I’ve disappeared on my husband chasing Pokemon. The first time he searched the house for me and started to imagine I turned invisible. He was talking to invisible me when I returned. There was an Eevee outside! I heard they are worth scaring your husband for. 🙂

it’s pretty easy. All u have to do is walk around and wait for a Pokemon to appear.

No. I’m not so fanatic to risk my life so as to catch a Pokemon.

Pokemon Go is a pretty new type of game, how difficult is it to play?

In my opinion it is not hard do play but difficult to become good in it. Because most of the game mechanics are not explained, yet. Like how to properly fight or what’s the best way to train the Pokemon.

There s been some incidents/ accidents reported, have you experienced anything of that type while playing?

I didn’t hear about severe accidents, only a girl who stumbled. I personally didn’t experienced anything like that.

Have you always been a pokemon fan and whats your favourite pokemon?

Yes, I was a fan from the very beginning and played most of the gameboy games, beginning with blue. My favorite is Totodile (Karnimani in German).
