Ah sorry. I was switching terms in and out at will so I could have made it easier to understand.

Sounds like a very similar situation to your disgusting ATM charges and general bank ****ery. Talking to Americans about cellphone coverage is just sad.

For the country that created the "customer is always right" phenomenon you sure don't have decent consumer advocacy. Probably because that's basically socialism and consumer advocacy on the capitalist model is filing nuisance lawsuits, the benefits mostly being felt by the corporation which owns the lawyers which won the suit.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

So someone on Reddit realized that just like the PokeStops and Gyms, Pokemon spawn points are directly taken from Ingress. In fact, you can see them clearly in Ingress. The structures, whatever they're called, were automatically generated by activity in an area. Essentially this means Pokemon are more likely to spawn in places of high cell phone activity like cities and shopping centers. Just earlier I was in my local shopping center and there were so many Pokemon, guys.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

On the one hand I can see people being dumb and falling off cliffs or into holes, and I understand that the wilderness doesn't usually have good cellphone coverage, but you'd think it wouldn't kill them to fudge some numbers so pohkey-maaahns can be found out in the wilds,

I have a proper classic pallet town where I live. Outside of the com mons which helps give that starter town feel it doesn't get much more exciting than jigglypuff and clafairy if anything I live in the patch of grass just south of mt moon.

Today I got that new phone I wanted for non Pokego reasons and decided to give it a try. Of course the servers were down all day but I just got muh bulbasaur and caught a pidgey on my kitchen countertop. I'll probably go for a walk or take my bike out tomorrow since the weather forecast is good and see what sort of pokermons Oxford has to offer.

After running some errands today I went by the trendy open air mall up the road.  Ten shops, two gyms, and people swarming everywhere obviously playing the game.  There were losers like me alone or in pairs, some couples camped out at gyms, and then packs of 20 something dudes roaming around.  I could hear cheering and people singing gotta catch em all echoing through the mall.

I also caught a Venusaur in the parking lot.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Ew, lurk. That's disgusting. Vile. Reprehensible.

Everyone knows Gardevoir hentai is where it's at.

Today I got that new phone I wanted for non Pokego reasons

YEH RITTTTTE

Sure you may have wanted it for non-Pokemon reasons, but you got it for Pokego.

Now praise the Pokelord for your new phone.

If only I could catch more than just com min. All the local gyms are filled with 1000 CP plus mons of different types all I can get are a couple of decent pidgeot.

The game really punishes you if you don't go to shops or more heavily trafficked areas.
Probably not a Goat, either.

You also find rarer pokemon as your trainer level goes up.
