Surely you can download your local area in Google Maps and play this game which will stop GPS from draining your battery? 

Does it run directly from Google Maps then?

I read somewhere that it uses the Google maps API.

What do people do with duplicated pokemon?

I've been keeping the higher CP one and "transferring" the lower one, mainly because I like having just one of everything,

That the done thing or is there a better approach? (I've never played Pokemon before by the way, so apologies if that's an obvious question)

I read somewhere (apologies for hte Forbes article) that you can also hold onto a few easily captured Pokemon (Zubat, Spearow, Pidgey etc) and evolve them for super quick XP (especially when combined with a lucky egg for 2x XP).

 

Turns out that you can also get Pikachu as a starter instead of the three usual suspects.

I didn't get any starter. I started with nothing.

I've evolved a couple of things already.

Aaah, that's why you didn't get my moto joke! There's a rare pokemon called mewtwo, you see. Very clever pun.

Thank god, I was thinking I wasn't very funny anymore..

In all fairness, I got the joke, I just didn't realise it was a play on the word Mewtwo :)

A friend got one out of an Egg, I've just had endless Bulbasaurs from mine:(

Not seen one in the wild yet, Cardiff seems covered with everything else though.

I've got 20 unique i think.

There are shit loads around my office. Everytime I open the app I get one or two pokemon. 

Just got an egg and stuck it in an incubator. "Walk 10km to hatch!". See you in about a week then :D

You'll never be a Pokemon master with that attitude :P 43 types here.  Apparently I've walked 20km already.
