GO Stops

Goodale Park is the highest concentration of stops I've seen. There are around 20 stops in the park as well as a gym. I walked around there after work last night for 40 minutes and there were around half a dozen active lure modules and the gym changed hands several times. It is a very active spot, with groups of trainers wandering all over the park or sitting in the benches.

The rest of the Short North and the Arena district look pretty good. Easton has a high concentration as well as downtown Worthington.

I've heard campus is good as well, but with no classes in session I haven't been down there much.

German village looked barren, not sure if I was having issues, I reset and it still looked the same. I had two separate riders tell me Schiller park down there was really good though.

Now if there was only something closer to my condo...

Apparently, you're supposed to take your captured creatures and upgrade them with candies and take them to the gym for practice and XP to build them up. If you are strong enough to take over a gym, your little buddy defends it against all comers and gets credit for fighting them.

I only know this because of the fanatics around me who play it. I don't actually play it myself. :rolleyes:

Currently you can only fight with your Pokémon at gyms. Outside of gyms the game is entirely catching, walking, and hitting Pokestops for more supplies.

If you want advice on how to be good at the game let me know and I'll make a lengthy strategy post. Otherwise if you are just catching them for fun then have at it.

Advice?

I got in some fares earlier today and then took my wife to a movie.

On the way home, a kid staring deeply into a cell phone RAN into the street in front of my car, leaped up onto the opposite curb and, I can only imagine, caught another pokemon. I don't think he even realized I was there. After bringing the car to a sudden stop and avoiding any vehicles behind me, my wife and I looked at each other as if we were about two seconds away from being on the evening news.

I want some advice on how to make THAT stop.

The game doesn't work that way, contrary to popular belief you aren't encouraged to run into traffic to find that Pokémon. If you know exactly where one is, then you are already close enough to capture it. The exception is if someone else finds it and you move to them to get it as well. There is a tracking system in the game, but it was 95% broken by their first patch, maybe when they get that fixed.

There are other reasons kids run blindly into traffic while staring at their phones, Snapchat, porn, Netflix, Facespace, Twigger, and all those other social media thingamabobs...oh, and good ol music player as well. Phone distracted kids walking into poles, manholes, and traffic was an issue long before Pokémon Go ever existed.

Otherwise my suggestion is just run 'em over, you know, Darwinism.:wink:
