[BGR] Even after the update, Pokemon Go still collects info from your phone - Page 2

post #11 of 120
Not sure if srs. I went to my local college a few nights ago at 1:30 am to find pokestops, found +100 people still walking around catching pokemon. Also went last night at 10:30 pm, easily +300 people. Probably the friendliest crowd and helpful people, all going outside looking for Pokémon.

Dont understand the overwhelming hate at the start of this thread.

Me either, if you not into, you just not into it. I know of some other peeps at the Uni playing it.

It looks interesting, but I can't play it since I have no smartphone. So, waiting on Pokemon Sun/Moon to drop for the 3DS instead. But by what I understand, Pokemon Go is no where near in depth with the battle system as the main games which I have been playing since Blue all the way to OmegaRuby. Still got Blue at that and it still works. biggrin.gif


Though, I understand peoples concern about the data collection. Hopefully they can fix that. Then again, I think the majority really don't give one piece of crap about if the game is doing it or not.

They both live and work in places with no Pokestops, and thus can't get a good supply of pokeballs, and as a result are mad at Nintendo. biggrin.gif

I can't wait till they start banning people for using GPS spoofers. Then I won't play anymore from my couch while I'm also in downtown phoenix. I won't give them a dime of my money, but I also won't kill myself trying to catch stuff.

It's barely amusing. I just screw with it when I'm bored and see how much I can push using my rooted gps spoofer before they ban me for it.

then I can root my gf's phone, make her spoof, and get her banned since she's a stay at home mom and I can't stand how annoyed she is about needing more pokeballs. She needs to be banned from this game. I'll make sure it happens.

They're really catching people into playing this game off nostalgia and the fact that all of them already have a smart phone. From what I've read the game is racking in tons of money already.

Whether you love or hate Pokemon GO, it's done more to unite this country than anything in the past 10 years. It's helping out businesses-restuarants as well to bring in customers who otherwise would never have visited due to Pokestops. If you didn't like Pokemon much growing up of course you wouldn't understand the craze.

Never played a Pokemon game. Got into Pokemon go walked 8 kilometers in one day. It makes exetcise not so crappy.

People wi be unhappy no mattet what. If everyone suddenly discovered a love for Doom or something, the people in this thread would probably hate on that with equal ferver. Some people just want to be mad at something, even if it is nothing more than impotent rage.

ITT: Stop liking what I don't like!

Let everyone have their fun as long as people stay safe and don't trepass or put others in danger. Pokemon Go is doing wonders for people's health just by getting them off the couch.

Somebody suggested that PokemonGo and Ingress are primarily wardriving applications. Not sure what other information they might be interested in.
