Pokémon GO: First Impressions

I’m a level 6 member of Team Valor, the red team. Valor is one of three possible teams to support. The other two being Instinct, Team Yellow, and Blue, Team Mystic. You can only join one of these teams by going to a gym once you hit Trainer Level 5. It’s not too difficult to reach and there are Gyms in a lot of  places. You can pay for in game items like Pokéballs (That is to say, you can when the store decides to work.) In some places you can not yet access the store or even the game just yet.

But to those with the game you can easily farm up more Pokéballs and other items from the store for free by leveling up or traveling to a PokéStop. The PokéStop is a random landmark on the map that gives you random items such as Pokéballs, Eggs, Incense, Lures, Potions, and other in-game items, all for free. They reset every few minutes so you can literally go to a PokéStop and farm for items by staying there. Or you can travel about to different PokéStops and catch Pokémon while you farm the items.

I know that at certain levels you can catch Pokémon of a higher CP (Combat Points) and even get better items to catch the higher CP of Pokemon. So you don’t have to worry about trying to catch Mew with a regular red and white Pokéball. That said, right now only the Pokémon from Gen One are in the game, great for people who like that, but sad for Umbreon fans.

That’s all I can really say for a First Impression, but I do have some tips and tricks for gameplay if anyone would like that in a later post, but you have to ask for it.

Overall I rate the current edition of Pokémon GO 1.75 Pokéballs out of 5. Mainly due to all the technical issues and that the game is not officially available globally. My friends from the UK want to catch Pokémon too. I will update the rating later when there are more updates to the app. But for now there’s a lot of issues, but the game is great the 30% of the time that it works.

Until next time, make sure to comment on what you think my next post should be. Bye guys 🙂

For those who don’t know, whatsgood is a Paid to Post forum. I myself am not a member, but I know many who are. However I will not be joining after hearing what they’d had to say, and hearing what the admin had to say. The main problem being, you earn points for posting which you can cashout into paypal money and I believe other gift cards as well. But, members have the ability to steal hard earned points from other members, and this is legal by site rules to do! When members didn’t like this feature, they complained, as I believe they should have. But the Admin refuses to listen to reason and gave a rather childish response blaming the members for not reading up on how to use the bank to protect their money.

Here’s a screenshot of the post:whatsgood 300x225 - Reviewing whatsgood.us

 

Sounds to me like this is not a good earning site, with a not very intelligent admin. I visited the forum in question and found in the very post that he wrote telling members that they should read the reception, a number of grammatical errors. Now, I don’t claim to be the best at spelling or grammar in any language, not even my own. But if you run a forum that speaks a certain language, you should be able to write in that language with some level of professionalism and proficiency. I say professionalism because I saw triple exclamation marks as if yelling at the members.

According to the admin in another post, the stealing feature had been removed due to complaints, but some members still complain about stolen points. It is unclear to me if the feature had really been removed or if they are still talking about before the supposed “removal.” Before the supposed removal of the stealing feature he gifted only a fraction of the points stolen back to the victimized users. I have received no confirmation on the forum in question or any other about the stealing feature’s removal. But either way I’m personally not joining, and I recommend that you don’t either. The admin’s attitude alone makes that earning site not worth the money. I give no support to this site and even had adblocker on to take the screenshots, I don’t want to help pay thieves who don’t deserve the money they cashout.

Overall Rating: I give this site 2 $WG out of 5.

Until next time, comment what I should review next! Bye now 🙂

Update: It has been confirmed that the stealing feature has been removed and I have updated my rating accordingly.
