    From the datamined files, Zubat and Golbat have the smallest hit boxes in the game :( . It's literally come to the point where I don't even bother trying to catch them just because they're so hard to hit. I caught a Zubat, evolved it to a Golbat just for Pokedex completion and now I'm completely done with that lineage. Kind of unfortunate really.

        Went to assinaboine park last night around 10 30 with the girlfriend and I couldn't believe how many people were out, I'm assuming playing this game as they were all staring at their phones, standing in one spot.

        I've never seen so many people in one area this late at that park. One girl almost walked into us as well, while

            Legit. If someone is staring at their phone constantly refreshing it and they're also in a "hot spot" (Assiniboine Park, or The Forks just to name a few) they're pretty much guaranteed to be playing the game. I went to the Forks last night with a few other TTI members and was quite surprised to see 100+ people still there past midnight lol.

              I was at the forks as well from 930ish till 11. I caught a ton of Pokemon down by those weird rock formations (don't know how else to describe) because there were 3 lures going and if you stood there you got all 3 :banana:

                This game has taken over my free time in the evenings. Just evolved a 1750 Vaporeon PogChamp. I'm level 21.5 for the record and it takes a ridiculous amount of XP to level (75,000 - no that's not a typo).

                  I was walking my dog in Ass Park last night and was shocked at how many people were there around 11PM, that place is normally a ghost town that time of night!

Mine becomes unresponsive to inputs about 2/3 of the time I come out of battery saver, even though the game keep running. It also frequently locks up on the loading/warning screen. This is from the US App Store, on a 5S.

                                delete the US app and get the canadian one. your progress will still be there once you log in again. See if that works.

This is from the US App Store, on a 5S.

                                  Same problem on my 6s except not from the US app store. Having to restart constantly does not make for a great experience.

                                    Re-downloaded from the Canadian App Store but the issues persist. I've also had some issues with response when tapping on a wild Pokemon. Overall, the gameplay is alright, with room for what will hopefully be expansion. The quality of the app itself is pretty **** so far though. Just restarted 5 times unsuccessfully, and gave up. I'm a little surprised, since Niantic is not new to this, and they didn't have to rush this game out the door.

                                    Edit for more gripes: the paw print tracking is a useless mechanic. The radius for 3 paws must be at least half a kilometer, and I've never seen 2 or 1 print even when I'm right on top of a Pokemon. I'm also experiencing issues with Pokestops not generating items, or just not loading at all. I'm also getting errors when trying to power up Pokemon that prevent me from doing that. When I rebooted the game, it had consumed over 1000 stardust despite not powering up the Pokemon because of errors. Earlier today I caught the same Pokemon twice because the first encounter didn't update the map and there was still a Pokemon on that location. It's not "literally unplayable" but it's pretty close. I suspect the stops not loading properly would be a sever issue. Still ruins the game if you put in some time and it's broken so you get nothing. Awesome idea, finally makes GPS scavenger hunts fun for everyone, but it's so sloppy right now. I don't know if people are going easy on it because Pokemon is popular, or if my issues are exceptional, but this is a broken-ass game at the moment.

                                      app runs great on my android. apparently the servers are still really bad though, maybe that's the issue.

                                          Having the same issue with the battery save mode. App is still running just won't respond to any inputs.

                                          Servers still get buggy at times. Especially lunch and 5:00.

                                              If you just downloaded the game, don't expect the servers to be any good as they're launching the game in a new country almost everyday. This should continue until early August when the whole world gets it.

                                                Instinct (yellow). Doesn't seem very popular in my area.

                                                  I chose Instinct because the gym nearest my house is an Instinct gym. I'm way, way too green to take on any gym battles though.
