If you've noticed an increase in pedestrian activity these last few days, thank Pokemon Go

Recommended Posts

Haha.  My gf told me she downloaded it because her daughter wanted to play(uh huh) then I admitted had downloaded it too.  There aren't any Pokemon in the gulf of mexico but I'm sure I'll play with them when I get home.

I finally caved and downloaded it. Went for a jog around the neighborhood last night. All the other introverts were out too. Amazing how many people stay home on a Friday night.

 

There's a ton of gyms in my area. Also caught 3 water types in my pool! Ha! Contemplated ubering a couple miles away, but decided it was best to go home and try again today.

 

edit: also interested in going to the ship channel to see if any of the nasty wheezing/coughing & electric types are there.

I wonder if this will negatively affect programming at Discovery Green?

 

 


If DiscoGreen plays their cards right, it can boost programing attendance. Host specific days/events like "Trainer Tuesday/Thursday", and Battles or "Gym Takeover" events on the weekends. The grass will be completely destroyed with all the activity. Haha..

Looks like Discovery green doesn't like the increased traffic.  I wonder how bad it is getting if they are requesting this - last time I was there it just seemed like a busy day at the park

Totally makes sense, right?  The park can host a concert every 3 hours and a bunch of corporate events -- both of which kill the grass for much of the summer and leave trash all over the place -- heck, the park can even CLOSE COMPLETELY for private events and concerts --- but, some nerds chasing mythic monsters is just intolerable.

 

yep, perfect sense.

I've heard of people getting hit by cars and on a less macabre note, falling into rivers or throwing their phones against a wall while trying to 'swipe' and these stories didn't seem real to me until now. I guess some people really committed huh?

In typical Houston fashion, we drive around to play.  Well, I drive and the wife and kids play.  Can't get into the game myself.

I was sort of into the game when it first came out because of all the hype. I couldn't help myself and I didn't want to feel 'left out' but now that the buzz has died down I've lost interest and now I'm back to playing my all time fave game Civ VI
