The World Reacts to Pokémon Go

It’s official: Pokémon Go is finally out in the world and fans are sharing their experiences with the game so far. GS are taking a look at the best and most hilarious situations trainers are finding themselves in, in their quest to be the ultimate Pokémon Master!

Turns out, Pokémon Go is getting people to be more active than they were before. Wait, what? I have to go outside? Ugh, fine.

But some of those pocket monsters turn up in the weirdest of places.

And how legit some of the gyms are is questionable.

The servers went down a fair few times and fans were NOT happy.

And then there’s that pesky temperamental GPS signal.

Visiting people becomes really difficult when Snorlax problems are very real.

Sure, there are probs more important things happening around you, but that Pidgey ain’t gonna catch itself.

Not everyone cares about Pokémon Go being the bestest thing ever. But the emergency services approve, so long as you wear your common sense hat.

I think we can all agree that Pokémon Go is a buttload of fun, but please, please, PLEASE, be careful out there, trainers. Use your noggin and don’t be trying to catch pokémon while your driving or meant to be focusing your attention on something else. Is it really worth walking into traffic to catch that Caterpie? Didn’t think so. You won’t be the best like no one ever was if you’re not around to catch em all. Be sensible.

Seriousness aside, what do you think of the game so far? Has it lived up to your expectations? Is it your new weight loss app? Is it easier to become a Pokémon Master by actually travelling across the land, searching far and wide, or from the comfort of your couch like the old days? Let us know in the comments below.
