    It's more location based, bug types in parks, water types by water, etc. just as you would assume to find if Pokmon were real creatures in the real world. You wouldn't expect to find a bird swimming on the ocean floor or cat flying in the air. Same concept.

    Gotcha. I'm impressed that there was that much thought put into it from the developers.

    Yeah, it's all part of the making it more real world and making people get up and go places to find Pokmon ha ha. Eggs had thought too. In the Nintendo games you have to walk around, usually riding a bike endlessly, to hatch eggs. They brought that to real world too. You can pick up eggs and they range from either 2km, 5km, or 10km, I haven't seen any other distances, you physically have to walk those distances with the egg in an incubator to hatch it.

    I can see why this game is getting so popular. You can play without having to really leave your neighborhood (most areas in my neighborhood are common areas, so anyone is welcome to walk/sit/play there). You cannot do that with Ingress.... gas was getting entirely too expensive to play that game any more.

    I'm just edging into the game, so apologies if that's a stupid question but... are we talking large bodies of water? I.e. if there isn't any large rivers/lakes in the area, does it mean you will likely not encounter any water types?

    I didn't read the ignore part.. Can I catch another one even though I have been playing for a few days? I never see him in my tracker box?

    Yup, I found several at the base of a Gym. One of them was Pikachu, and I got him and the others too.

    I caught Pikachu first by ignoring four or five others that initially popped up!

    Exactly. I was a year 1 day 1 ingress player also for the resistance. I've been to plenty of downtown Chicago meetings and u right gas was getting to much to play. Not with pokemon go. U can be an active player just playing on your daily routines. No out the way needed.

    I've seen a few pop up in the last few days but haven't been close enough.

    Pok Radar shows some have been caught not far from me too. So maybe someday!
