Stuff like Elastic Load Balancing is definitely a thing though. You don't have to buy a fuck ton of servers to support load spokes any more.
Like you said though, nothing is ever simple in software engineering. If they weren't already using something like AWS, it's not the easiest to move.
From the page I linked:
>Elastic Load Balancing automatically scales its request handling capacity to meet the demands of application traffic. Additionally, Elastic Load Balancing offers integration with Auto Scaling to ensure that you have back-end capacity to meet varying levels of traffic levels without requiring manual intervention.
If you play the game on Android you can use this app to keep it running on background with the screen turned off(screen is off while you keep the phone in your pocket or in a position that covers the proximity sensor).

I ordered the skin from Shirt Punch a week before Christmas and arrived soon after. Installing it was fairly simple and the quality is pretty nice.
The band I ordered off of Amazon as part of a set of bands designed for the Misfit Shine, they fit very well on the Plus and I decided to go with the white one as I felt it looked the best with the skin I have.
This is an iOS feature learning your app habits. For me around 9:45 at night audible is on the bottom on my screen as a suggestions. It's your phone that knows you are at work and that you play Pokémon go when you get there.
You can shut off the suggestions.
Amazon already saved me. Let me get a $60 phone to play on

Download Google Opinion Rewards. Google sends you surveys every so often and they pay $0.10-1.00 per survey and its added to your Google Wallet™ which can in turn use for in-app payments.
Ok, you find a bull to ride while carrying this. The rest of us will ride a bike.
You can get the APK from apkmirror.com. They are a legit site and their APKs are all signed by the actual company they come from so you know they aren't tampered with.
If you're on Android, there are apps that let you use gifs as your Daydream/Screensaver. Random one found in search
The settings to turn it on are probably under the Display section, and called Daydream or Screensaver.

EDIT: I lied and I am an idiot. Name was on the image. Hacked the mainframe and found it
There's a app called Proximity Service (free, https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ss.proximityservice) which uses the proximity sensor on the front to turn off the screen without locking the phone. It should do the same thing as Battery GO, but free.

Google Opinion Rewards is an Android app where you answer surveys for Play Store credit. It is unique from other survey programs in that the surveys are short (longest I've seen had 7 questions) and rewards seem better than others (I got 59¢ for about a minute of my time once). Link
Not strictly true, cloud servers usually have multiple pricing options, and the longer the lease you sign, the cheaper the server.
See https://aws.amazon.com/ec2/pricing/ - scroll down to 'reserved instances'
Sorry to disappoint you, but its only in the Google Store. Its very hard to make a convenient overlay App for iOS and up to now, we were busy adding features to the android version.
Thanks a lot, been looking for something like this for a while, going to try it out!
For those of you who don't want to search for it, here's the link to the app on Play Store.
Looks like it can auto-catch Pokemon, but only if you've caught one of that type before:
>Once a Pokémon is close, press the button on the Pokémon GO Plus to throw a Poké Ball. You'll only be able to throw a Poké Ball using Pokémon GO Plus if you've caught the Pokémon before. The Pokémon GO Plus will flash and vibrate to let you know if you were successful in catching the Pokémon.
Sign up and take surveys. Most questions are based on where you've been before and shopping experiences at stores you've visited and it could depend on your demographic as well, so your mileage may vary.
Sorry for hijacking top comment.
Hey OP, it'd be nice if you credited Steven Crosby and John Schlemmer for these, who created them last year.
Google Opinion Rewards gives you Google Play money for answering survey questions. It's great for getting a little spending money for games. The only downside that I know of is that you are limited by your demographic. For example: my wife gets waaaaaay more surveys than I do and therefore has made a lot more money. Apparently businesses are way more willing to pay for her opinion than my own.
I used AZ Screen Recorder, literally the first suggestion when looking for screen recorders on Google Play.
No idea if it exist for iPhone, or if it's even possible to record your screen on iOS. It might be worth it just searching in the App Store :)
That's not what the Plus is though (well, at least based on what's been said so far?). It's basically just a Bluetooth device that allows you to do a few limited actions without needing to pull your phone out. http://www.pokemongo.com/en-us/pokemon-go-plus/
here's hoping google doesn't delete all the reviews.
Title of article translates to,Community day in Japan postponed due to Heavy Rain.
Here is the twitter post from Niantic
Translated: 【Important】 We are postponing the "community day" in Japan which we planned tomorrow in consideration of everyone's safety, in response to the heavy rain warnings issued in some areas. We will inform you about the date again. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you to stop immediately before the event starts.
I was looking for squirtle for an hour before realizing it was postponed...
Edit:: Not raining in Tokyo and northern japan, but there is flooding and deaths in southern Japan I am glad Niantic postponed.
>Guy goes outside once
>Game literally saves life
This is honestly ridiculous, like I get that you're probably suffering from depression or another mental illness but if it's so bad that you associate a video game that hasn't even been out for 24 hours for saving your life that you need to seek serious help.
>I haven't seen a doctor so I won't say I have anything wrong with me.
I get that we're all just congratulating OP but this just allows the problem to fester.
Stop ignoring the problem, being a loner, feeling gloomy, and being afraid to talk to people is incredibly wrong. I don't think you should just ignore it, People are Animals who are social beings, we are naturally drawn to others. The fact that you even hesitated to do the extremely normal activity of just going outside should send many red flags in the air.
Please talk to a psychiatrist and I highly recommend these books

I've done a couple of events in Ingress and my 20kmAh has always served me well. Anything that can charge your phone 2 or 3 times is generally good enough. Also knowing how to lower your phone's power consumption is good; disable wifi (even though it may help with position, it eats battery), turn on power saver, lower screen brightness, disable background apps etc.
Also, if you're on Android, GPS Status and Toolbox is a great tool for increasing your phones accuracy without wifi.
Google Opinion Rewards is an android app that gives you google play store credit for surveys you answer. Keep in mind this is dependent on where you live and what stores you visit, BUT if you're playing pokemon go you'll probably get a lot of surveys.
I ended up getting $5 dollars yesterday from all the stores I visited because of the pokestops and gyms. Also answer the surveys truthfully, you'll only screw yourself over if you lie.
Full disclosure: I am the author of the app I'm about to recommend. The link is below.
Wakey is an Android app that is built to keep your screen on, on your terms. I've worked very hard to make it work well and be simple to use, and gives you lots of options which may improve battery life while using Pokemon Go. It works better than the "Battery Saver" mode included in Pokemon Go, which only really works when the screen is upside down. Wakey works in any orientation.
You can choose a mode that will allow the best combination of screen and battery - you can choose CPU only (this allows the screen to shut off, but the phone stays awake. I'm not 100% sure this is compatible with Pokemon Go, but if not...), or you can choose "Minimal Brightness" mode, which lowers your screen to the lowest brightness, but keeps it on. Finally, there's "Allow Dimming" mode, which lets the screen go partially dim, but not fully dim or off. I would recommend trying the modes in that order, as they are listed in the order of most battery saving.
With Wakey, you can set it to keep your screen on manually, or as long as Pokemon Go is on screen (or any app or apps you choose), or as long as the device is charging (the Auto features require in-app upgrade to Premium, but everything else I'm talking about here is free).
Android users can download it here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.doublep.wakey&referrer=utm_source%3Dreddit%26utm_medium%3Dcomment%26utm_term%3Dpokemon%252Bgo
Trainers, the Pikachu outbreak is larger than we anticipated!
A giant Pikachu was spotted at the historic Alamo Square park today, allegedly riding on a wave of lures all the way from Yokohama!

Posting again for OP: OP, it'd be nice if you credited Steven Crosby and John Schlemmer for these, who created them last year.
There's a quote I like relevant to this that goes something like "it's easy to criticize, hard to create". Sure, OP created a cool mockup in photoshop. But actually putting the pieces together and making it into an interactive video game is a lot more challenging. Also, you say you wonder what Niantic is doing, but consider that just because you like something a certain way doesn't mean everyone in their audience likes it that way too, or that all of the proposed improvements are considered acceptable to all members of the company.
I also think a big part of why this is so appealing is because of its presentation. OP did a really good job assembling the imagery and text layout to complement his artistic creations. However, presentation can sometimes impact our perceptions of a product more than we anticipate. Here's a lecture on how presentation can impact perception of how food tastes, for instance. Using catch phrases like "new" and "more" and "better" can also influence perception. My point isn't that OP's work is bad, not in the slightest, just that it's a little unfair to say 'what is niantic doing??' when it's so easy to sell a superior product on ideals and by focusing on simple psychological undertones.
I'll just leave this right here.
This turns your screen off when the proximity sensor is triggered, meaning your screen is off, while keeping your screen "active" as far as apps are concerned. It works much better than most of these other apps that are recommended here and it's FREE.
It's more like a tower defense game... You don't play matches like in starcraft, but you build your base over time (with features like "wait 24 real time hours while this building is being upgraded, or pay $5 to skip it") and you have units to attack other players' bases (in a reverse tower defense style - they don't actively defend themselves, you choose where to deploy units and opponents' buildings try to kill them).
It's all very "mobile-friendly", where you can play in short 5-minute bursts (aka toilet breaks) and everything else is done for you while you're offline, which is why people play it (since it requires basically no effort, just inactive time and/or money). Like other mobile games, it makes most money on "whales", which are people who spend tens of thousands of dollars (seriously) on it, trying to be #1...
Source: I briefly played a Star Wars themed clone of it. It felt nice to stomp enemies with AT-ATs, but ultimately, it was kinda pointless and there was very little satisfaction spread over way too much time.
I think this is a genius idea. I found an app that works for Android.
It requires a computer to install some files via command line/terminal, but it doesn't need root access. Most other Android apps require root access for control like this.
I tested it with simple menu commands and it works great. I'll update when I'm able to test with pokeballs.
EDIT: Full Field Report
This works! I'll do a field report at lunch with screenshots (maybe make a new post?) Initial downsides: need multiple recordings for throws (near, medium or far) and it may not fully solve curveball issues.
I don't think this will run it. It requires 2GB RAM, and this only has 1GB. Slow processor too, 1.2GHz 400 Quad core - doesn't cut it these days.
Do you have Amazon Prime? You can score a BLU R1 that will run it decently for $60

My first stab at making an app game. Gave myself the challenge to take an existing script and turn it into a unique game in under 24 hours. Lack of sleep, and plenty of coffee lead to this monstrosity. Squish birds, get candy. Kind of like some other professors we know :P
It's built in Unity and in C#, as mentioned its based on an existing game but with a bunch of modifications and since before I started I didn't know C# or Unity I'm pretty pleased it happened.
Currently only on Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hemlockcandy.crusherandroid
(It also ended up taking waaay longer than 24 hours to debug it all and get it built, but hey it exists so I'm pretty happy about that :))
I downloaded an app called rotation control. If you pull down the notification bar an hit the shield button and the landscape button it works. http://imgur.com/XG1t422

Download Poke Genie app, it's a guaranteed way to raid. You can also use it to scan your highest CP pokemon, then use their "Top Counters" options to select highest dps team for the raid boss.
After downloading, click on the menu at the upper left corner and then select Raid.
agree w/ Ok_Progress202, just use free incubator, egg selection is garbaggio .... or get one of those phone cradles that "walks" egg for you
Have you tried any of these with parallax?
What we'd need for a really good parallax background would be 3 layers. Using the Yellow background with the mountain climber in it as an example, we'd need something like the hiker image as the base layer, the yellowish overlay on that as the middle layer (2048x2048 png with nothing but the overlay on the image), and the white overlay as the top layer (also 2048x2048 png with no background). Then we can use something like 3D Parallax background to compile them together and make a really sweet background. I'm thinking of doing something like that right now actually!
Calcy IV. It's similar to how Poke Genie works but it can directly look at what's on the screen (something iOS can't do) removing the need for taking a screenshot.
I have a portion of my terminal open, dedicate to watching the Google Play Store Pokemon GO version. If you're running linux (or maybe OSX?), you can run this. As soon as it changes to 0.37.0 I'm clear to snag the update :-)
curl -s https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nianticlabs.pokemongo | grep -o '0.3[0-9].0'
I'm beginning to wonder if Niantic or Google messed something up.
Checking the play store via my andriod phone I see version 0.35.0 and last update of August 22nd, 2016.
Checking the play store via my desktop web browser I see version still at 0.35.0, but the update date shifted to September 10th.
I hope whomever uploaded the new version to the play store didn't fumble finger the version number and leave it the same.
Don't even risk it, because Calcy IV works without you signing into anything.
> It's been several years since I've dealt with any kind of rooting, and have no clue how to unroot it.
Of course everyone's setup may be different, but for me it was as easy as opening SuperSU and choosing the full unroot option: http://i.imgur.com/OdhFJ4z.png

You probably dont have 2gb ram. That was the sole reason I couldn't download it on my Galaxy Note 2. Although apkmirror worked and after installing it all was fine. Or check this page on why you cant install it. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nianticlabs.pokemongo&hl=en
~~Just to add to the topic, users logging in with Google credentials on an Android system need NOT worry, as it does NOT even show up in "Connected sites and Apps" in your Google Account. Instead, the app is put in check by the permissions it asks from you, and they do not require full access~~. Even if you're an Android user, check your Google Account page at https://myaccount.google.com - I use a Moto X and the app does not show anywhere in that page, but people reported otherwise for other phones. You can check the permissions yourself in Pokemon GO's Google Play page: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nianticlabs.pokemongo
EDIT: from the comment below, I see that this is not always the case.
If you plug your iPhone into your computer and open QuickTime you can select "New movie recording" from the File menu. In the window it opens up you can select your iPhone as the device at the bottom of the screen.
AFAIK that only works on OSX Yosemite but you can use LonelyScreen if running Windows.
Cemeteries were one of the things that the Silph Road research team collected data about, and they didn't notice any statistical differences. I'm not sure how big their sample size was, but one of the things they said was that they found 0 Ghost Pokemon. It may be that cemeteries are only differentiated from other biomes so that ghosts dont spawn there, as that could cause some controversy over disrespect (like the koffing in the holocaust museum).
This is my source for the list by the way, though I'm not sure the original source of the datamine.

If you're on Android you can use Caffeine app (free) to automatically prevent your device from locking when Pokemon Go is in the foreground. Used it tonight and it worked great.
why I've been raiding via Poke Genie lately - it won't let players join a raid lobby if they can't do at least 20% damage, meaning that if they're coming with a full team of Aggrons saving on their revives they don't get to raid and waste other people's raid passes
The Google opinion rewards app sends you surveys based on your location history and gives you play store credit for answering them. Usually it's something like "when did you last visit local grocery store? How was the experience? Did you pay with cash or card?" Or I sometimes get screenshots from YouTube videos asking if it looks like something I'd be interested and why or why not in order to help improve their recommendations for users. Basically they're paying you to help them gather data.
I mean, you know they're already tracking your location history and all that just by using their services. Might as well get paid for it.
I get about a dollar and some change per week from ten second surveys.
It's not a lot of money but it does add up, so I use it on games mostly.
Each pokemon species has three base statistics, attack/defense/stamina, from which things like CP and HP and actual damage per attack are derived. On top of these base statistics, each individual pokemon has "individual values" (or IVs) for each stat, which get added to the base stat. IVs can each range from 0-15, completely independently from each other.
For example, for Vaporeon, the base stats are 205/177/260, so Vaporeons can range from 205/177/260 (the worst) to 220/192/275 (the best), and any possible combination anywhere in between.
Under non-boosted circumstances, each IV triple is equally likely - it is just as likely you'll catch a 15/15/15 as it is 0/0/0 or 8/4/10 ... but most people don't think 8/4/10 is special... However, when it is rainy outside, wild-caught Vaporeon will have IVs ranging from 4-15. Pokemon hatched from eggs will have IVs in the 10-15 range... and there are other boosts as well.
As for how to see the IVs, you have to use a separate app to analyze them. Niantic bans apps that directly interact with the main PoGo app or contact their servers; this leaves apps that can analyze screenshots. On Android the most popular seems to be Calcy IV, and on iOS I recommend Poke Genie.

It's actually really not that bad. "On-Demand instances let you pay for compute capacity by the hour with no long-term commitments."
> thanks for ruining the game by forcing all these security measures
Except that these security measures such as preventing rooted phones were implented to stop cheaters. (It didn't)
> trying to go against Niantic's vision.
And what is that vision exactly? Is it this one? Where they basically tell you which direction to go in? Just like a tracker?
Before you argue "hurr durr its a trailer of course it wont be 100% true" then why does the webpage explicitly state that you can determine the location of nearby Pokemon? The specific quote is "Use it to find PokéStops, Gyms, the location of nearby Pokémon, and more!"
>If you dont like the game: stop playing it, stop talking about it, move on.
Who said that they don't like the game? Everyone is saying that they don't like what Niantic is doing to the game.
> I love the game without trackers, so boring to B-line to every pokemon you want.
Good for you. Thing is, not everyone uses trackers 24/7. In fact, the majority of people probably only use them to track down the elusive Snorlax or Dragonite they saw in their sightings.
> It's good for 2-3 full chargers
Does that mean you'll have to buy a new one after that? I'm currently shopping for one myself and found one over at amazon for sale
Most of the manga (up to BW2, including FRLF and HGSS remakes) have been translated into English and are avaliable on Amazon as physical prints. For the US release, the earlier regions/games are split up into box-sets containing all the books of their respective arc.
Here's the first set: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1421550067
EDIT: XY series is currently being released as individual volumes in the US, with Vol. 8 coming in October. You can either buy them individually for ~$5 each or wait for the eventual box-set.
A lot of versions of Android didn't handle the leap second that was added on January 1st properly. This wrecks havoc with GPS, you can fix this by updating to the latest verison of Android or go get GPS Status & Toolbox and reset your A-GPS XTRA Data. Either method should fix it.
It will also likely fix itself as eventually it will clear the incorrect data but it could take a week or two, depends how often you actually have your GPS in use.
The same thing is happening to me as well (Samsung S5). I've decided to not even bother with the in game battery saver option since it keeps freezing the game.
I do have a temporary work around though, but it requres Tasker (if you have it). I made a task where everytime my phone is oriented in a certain (upside down, left and right side, and face down) tasker will basically put up a black screen over my phone. My phone hasn't frozen since I've been using this.

It may even edge on discrimination. It may have nothing to do with sex, race, religion, or sexuality. But by definition:
> Treatment or consideration of, or making a distinction in favor of or against, a person or thing based on the group, class, or category to which that person or thing belongs rather than on individual merit. http://www.dictionary.com/browse/discrimination
But again, it's on an edge case, but is still rife for abuse.
I would kill for a PokeWalker v2 type of thing. Literally just re-release the old PokeWalkers, but have them Bluetooth based instead of IR based. Charge like $20 a pop and let it record the data for things like eggs. This would be much cheaper than a fitbit (iirc they're like $100+), and much more reasonable as an add-on. Either way, I do feel like they need to figure something out with how the tracking works, because as it is right now, it kills phones like crazy.
EDIT: Wow they're already on it, though it doesn't mention anything about egg hatching or things like that. I need one, lol.
Just a little background…the dratini badge was a redraw from an existing icon created by icons8. Link here: https://icons8.com/icon/45480/dratini for credit.
I really liked the style, but the dragon was more air than tini so I redrew the snout, ears, added a few more personal touches and changed the colours to make it more dratiniesque.
As for the other badges the bulbasaur and mareep are my own illustrations. I kept the same 2D vector style to keep the aesthetics consistent with the series.

Sounds like a 64-bit phone running a 32-bit OS. As far as we understand, it will not be supported unless you can get a 64-bit OS on it. But Niantic really needs to clarify if not totally rethink this, because there are a LOT of phones released just in the past few years that are 64-bit but the manufacturers put 32-bit OS on them.
The phone type is simple enough to google, but the OS information might not be readily available. For anyone unsure, this is a very simple and quick app that will tell you which type of OS you have:

As a Pokemon GO trainer, you should know that Ditto can actually transform into any Pokemon. Amazing, right? With the transformation, the Ditto’s CP also changes!
With this app, you can easily simulate what CP value will your Ditto have in battle. Hope you like it!
Tell us if your Ditto is really powerful or if could be better ;)
I've been using Go Extender for weeks: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.dferreira.gopikapi
It turns the screen black when upside down and prevents unwanted touches. It also turns off the backlight when in your pocket (proximity sensor). Works great! I find the game's battery saver mode started causing bugs around 2 weeks after launch so I never have it enabled anymore.
Andriod in Arizona here,
Anyone know why it says updated Sept.10 here https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nianticlabs.pokemongo&hl=en but the current version is still 0.35
and then if I check the "app" version of the store it says last update was Aug.22?
According to my Android version of the app I'm on 0.29 which seems to match what's on the Android store at the moment.
EDIT: Woke up this morning to find that the store has 0.29.2 in. Hopefully this has stability improvements. Now if you excuse me, my phone apparently doesn't have enough storage to download this update, because apparently phones ignore SD cards entirely.
Yes... But when they say "down 12 million active daily users." it isn't based on a single day's active users. That's not how data sets work. I don't know how better to explain it to you...
Its aggregate data for "daily" users. Its data collected over an extended time and on average they're down 12 million daily players overall.
You don't view data sets as a single unit. That's just not how it works.
I'm also going to just go ahead and define aggregate.
My point being that pokestops are not what a geocacher would refer to as a virtual geocache.
The object of getting to a pokestop is not to log that you were there by taking a selfie and posting it online.
Perhaps a better comparison would be the biking/running app "Strava" where you can upload your favorite route and other peoples times on that route will populate. Other people can then see your route on their app and go there specifically to get listed on the leader board. It behaves more similarly to a virtual geocache than anything pokemon go has to offer yet nobody is claiming them as virtual geocaches. https://www.strava.com/segments/1134565 (here's one in Lake Park, Milwaukee WI)
Holy fuck, you're right. That's some bullshit right there. If you're in an urban area, it's no big deal, but I've done a lot of travel through rural areas where there's 100 miles between towns, and those patch kits wouldn't cut it if you popped your tire out there.

Your definition was "Something you see that makes you smile because you understand the reference." Your definition is not close to either of those. This is why you're getting downvoted.
I guess I said it wrong. You have to create your original address and use whatever domain they have from the list, and then use these steps to turn on the alias pm.me. https://protonmail.com/support/knowledge-base/pm-me-addresses
Uh, hello. Thank you for welcoming me, but I'm a long-time resident here. I do appreciate very much that you ignored my posts though.
Yeah... anywhere from a few pennies to a handful of dollars per day.

The issue isn't server cost, it's poor engineering
Okay here it is https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zgS60ri8Vv1o.kFhJ6yaGRjOs&usp=sharing
everyone feel free to add in pokemon anywhere on the map. I'll make sure to login and check on it regularly.

I'm going to disagree with you on this, yes you could possibly fit all the data into that size of database but you're missing the load balancing, regional redundancy, api calls, stats, error logging, caching and a bunch of other architectural design scenarios.
Let's take another company that might not be a good comparison but I think they do a great job at optimization, Stackoverflow.
Since Pokémon Go has 20 million daily active users and serving a ton of API calls to the mobile apps I think the load size are comparable.
Just caching and database just for Stackoverflow are around 3TB
With apps that perform as fast as Pokémon Go and the user base it's much more then the 20 or 60GB your suggesting
But as for the question on the ability to increase to item or backpack capacity, it would take no/minimal additional storage as most likely it's just a value in a database that already is allocated to store a 4 digit number, they could increase the capacity to 9999 with very minimal changes
Maybe you could also create a matching function.
I have Tauros and I am looking for Khangaskhan
Someone has Khangaskhan and this person looking for Tauros
We live nearby
So the app could show all (or some) matching results.
Once you also have the location where the person is, I could set a radius up to 100km, for example.
Just for your information, some tools like Elastic Search can make these types of queries really fast.
Even if this is not a thing and there is no animation for it I will use my imagination and pretend it is happening. In fact I will do this with the battling to, even if it is automated I will imagine I was there with my Pokemon battling the enemy trainer.
I honestly didn't expect this to blow up so much. Today was my sleeping in day lol.
The person who made this was /u/nrekkern.
Here is a link to the building process.
He also gives out these little stickers for free.
I've been to Bellevue Square Park quite a few times and this was the 1st time spotting him and his Pokecenter. Though I'm usually there during the week and not weekend. If you do spot him, give him a thanks for such an amazing product / charging station. He's a nice guy.
I bought this on Amazon:
Slapped on a metal key ring and it's now on my keys so I never lose it! Would highly recommend if you have 10 bucks to spare.
