Pros: GBL just as fun if not more fun battle concept than game, legacy, revolutionism same as rbgy to smartphone gaming a new era will always remember that summer of ’16 closest we’ve ever come to world peace nyc hordes running to catch dragonite pure friendship adventure real world nature madness
Cons: Go Battle Lag poor execution borderline unplayable at times, way too hard to catch sometimes non-legendaries pidgeys and rattats take 7 ultra balls perfect throws and golden razz berries why no one cares aboput them made me pretty much stop catching altogether huge waste of time – legendaries overly difficult too waste of money raid passes cant even catch sometimes, cash-grab, poor planning from start lost cultural revolution people got bored poor execution get that didnt expect THAT big but should’ve known everyone oves pkmn had possibility to be as big a hit every feature built in such a way it benefits niantic financially game has made over 30b when is enough enough feels like cashgrab experience of trying to play a game when the fist of a dictatorial tyrant or board of investors watching your every movement form the next room over omnipotence over gameplay we have no problem with devs making money and good games being compensated but it feels almost like they have a stranglehold on you a classic parable of greed and insatiable hungriness for your pockets
