Hi Guys,

As some of you may already know, Nintendo and Niantic are creating a new Pokemon game called "Pokemon Go".
Long story short, an augmented reality game on Android/iOS using GPS technology to locate and catch Pokemon in the "real world".

For those who have not seen the trailer or read about it, please see below:

When I first saw it I was like "Wow, this is going to be awesome, kids will be running blind into traffic!"
But seriously, they made the game look "too good" in the trailer, I will have high expectations for the game. (which i know I shouldn't as it probably would not be what I expected)
I am very keen to play it and cannot wait till next year.

Just wondering what is everyone else's expectations/opinions are and what you think about the game?

Might be fun for a bit but overall not my cup of tea.

I'd rather see a full fledged Pokemon RPG on Wii U but that will probably never happen

Wii U using camera to scan the area and make areas XP like this size and texture makes this building 4031 placed to this spot from the footage and connect online with others near by using either ones area.
or tries to use google map to create a area of it and the textures from the scene and mash it up in how the levels mostly are.

It looks pretty awesome, but I could see all kinds of problems arising...

I'm not too thrilled about it.

I'm a huge Pokemon fan, but this seems kind of pointless to me. Just my opinion, it looks like it's getting way more hyped than necessary.

imo I think itll be great if they work hard.
No way is it going to be anything like the trailer buut imagine getting up 1 mourning, packing a bag with things you need for the day then setting out on foot, public transport or even a Bike
Exploring new places and gathering Pokémon while actually trading and battling
maybe in the future if Pokémon Go really takes off they while have some sort of Gym system put in throughout certain countries I highly doubt I just like having a good imagination :)

But see what im getting at here ??
This could really be a dream for some people, it only takes 1 dream chaser and a lot of motivation and this could go really far (which id love to see)

Me giving up everything to be a virtual Pokémon trainer in real life ahaha...
Don't temp me game :|

It would be a great or probably the greatest distraction while your waiting for the bus to get back home from wrk if your like me and u don't drive u would probably play the hell out of this in the hot hot heat! But the 2016 window is the biggest bitchslap in the whole trailer! What if it turns out to be some shitty remake of the most boring Pokemon game ever! ...Pokemon Snap.

Seems like an awesome idea, would love to see how it would work e.g. do Pokémon spawn in my room? Or in my school? In the street?
Hope it's not too expensive. Would love to maybe see some sort of game features (maybe bringing your own Pokémon to the real world?)

I love Pokemon and can't wait to get it. I'm just worried it won't live up to my expectations.
