...said no one ever.
Honestly though, I need to hear what this scene thinks about it as I'm sure you haven't been able to escape from it (especially in media) like myself. I tried it and the only things that appear are Pidgeys and Spearows, which is probably very fitting for me. I kind of feel like it makes you look SUPER sad in public, so I tried to avoid doing anything in it while people were around. I walked 3 miles at 10pm and only caught some crappy bird Pokemon, which was very disappointing. I did find a lone gym near me and it was really boring because you literally do not need any skill to battle and beat the other players that have Pokemon there.
So I always say don't knock it until you try it, but I tried it and it was just an empty experience. If you have yet to try it, please do and tell us what you think. If you live in a large city you will have a better time than me I'm sure; if I was in a city it would PROBABLY make walks slightly less boring, but at the same time, I might get hit by a bus while looking at my phone.
I think Jim Sterling summed my experience up:
I'm sure this game will be very popular here!
