Pokemon GO!

In this episode:

  • Pokemon Go launched this week, and like everyone else in the world, we  went crazy for it. However, despite our nerdlove for the app, there is a decided lack of documentation and tutorials, so we want to help other people make sense of what we’ve learned this week.
  • We discuss how the game works
    • How do to use pokestops and why you need them
    • How to fight/train in gyms and the rules for it
      • You can fight alongside other players on your team at the same time!
    • What does battery-saver mode actually do?
    • What good is evolving and how does transferring work?
    • Why are there so many Pidgeys?
  • We also take on the role of armchair developers and discuss what we think will make the app much more robust and likely to keep our attention.
    • Quests or a small storyline
    • Real documentation
    • Friends lists
    • Pokemon trading
    • Friend battles
    • Background mode!
    • Public events and legendary Pokemon hunts!
