Yes, I have joined the bandwagon. I have pokemon go on my phone. I haven't joined a team yet, and I only have one critter in my collection. And no pokestops in sight.
It's a bulbasaur and I have zero idea what to do with it because my last pokemon adventure went thus:
- Play the game for two hours on an emulator on my old PC
- Get stuck with no idea what to do next
- Google strategy guides
- PC flatlines forever
This time, I have it linked to my Google account, so the odds of my data/game dying forever are remote in the extreme.
As are my chances of seeing a pokestop, any other pokemon, or any other players in my predictable lifetime. That doesn't mean I won't stop trying though.
...anything you get for free is worth exactly what you paid for it...
Meh. As long as I'm having fun.
