I mean I expected it being a new game and all, especially as big a one as this.

I'll try hunting around my house later on.  Since I can only barely get it working on my tablet, I'm really limited to where I can go.  Most of my away hunting will be done on the Square in Gettysburg.

Yeah same here since I can't drive, and I'm on a shared Data Plan with my family.  I can probably look around my Abuela's house next time I go there since she has Wi-Fi.  But yeah I do find them in my house on occasion.  I hope I can find more Bulbasaurs, my first Bulbasaur has Power Whip.

The Square has wifi, so it's my only outdoor option.  Everywhere else will be a house.

Yeah both of us may need to shell out $40 for the Pokemon GO plus bluetooth devices eventually.

A really weak Ekans showed up in my house and I am at lv 4.  Just one more step before I get to level 5 and must choose what Team I will support. 

The closest Gym to me has been claimed by Team Valour, even though I'm really not the biggest fan of Moltres I may just go for Team Valour......

Unfortunately the game does put you in that mind set because of the Mechanics, resources are limited and you get Pokemon Candies for every Pokemon you send to Professor Willow which are needed to Power Up and Evolve Pokemon.  Not only that but in order to actually Power Up Pokemon you also need Star Dust which you get when you catch Pokemon as well as more Candies.

It's a resource Management Game, and you litterally have to pick which Pokemon you want to spend your Resources on.

Doesn't help that all these Pokemon get different Moves as well.  I mean I'll be honest I knew the game was going to be complex, but this is insane.

Yeah unfortunately the game is not optimized very well for Tablets, that and the first few days will be buggy as all get out.

It doesn't even work at all on my phone!

One half of Pokemon GO users: This game is great!  I'm catching so many Pokemon!  I just joined a Team!

Other half of Pokemon GO users: Please... stop crashing... stop glitching... Please just work on my device without five hundred restarts... I just wanna plaaaayyyyy...

Not to sound harsh but the reality is that you really need a Phone that's supported by a Major Network and not a pre paid one you get at the store. 

Or at least you need a Pre Paid phone that's at least an iPhone 5 with ios 8 or an Android Phone that at least has Android Kit Kat. And they will not support an iPhone that is Jail Broken it seems.

And again it's expected for it to be buggy as all hell in the first few days.

I'll look into upgrading to a better phone on my plan, but I really don't have the luxury to afford an iPhone or a Nexus, or whatever.

Yeah I suggest looking into cheap Android Based Phones, with at least the specs mentioned above.  That and Android will have more variety.

I hope they expand support for Windows Phones too, I haven't seen anything that indicates Windows Phones are supported just yet.  It also seems it hasn't hit Canada yet either.

I imagine that it's ironically hard to develope for unlike PC games.  Are the Windows Phones Closed Source?

Ooh yeah Windows is a Closed Source Platform for their phones as well, and doesn't have the benefit as being as popular as the iPhone which is the other Closed Source Mobile Network. 

Not to mention since it's owned by Microsoft that will be definitely be difficult to bring over.
