    When will the Pokemon Go hype die down? I kean you just do the same things over and over again, no real battle mechanic, you catch the same 4-5 pokemon depending where you are at any given time and not much else is there to do, some gyms are taken over by people location spoofing via android emulators like Bluestacks.

    There’s no Pokemon trading, no random encounters with battling wild poke mon, no real PvP with other trainers passing you by and no real worth while pokemon leveling system in place. Why collect stardust and candies.

    And that’s where future updates will come in handy..

    Not sure what Telus did this week, but if you live in the Greater Toronto Area, you can not log onto Pokémon Go on their network. WiFi has no issues, but telus network freezes on the login page.
