    If you've got an android phone you can manually download it onto your computer and then transfer the app onto your device.

      I see, well i have a nexus 5. So that should be easy enough i suppose. Is there actually going to be a legit release for it in canada though?

      Man have I got good news for you my fellow country-man! @Tensa Zangetsu It's available for android devices in all countries (unofficially, but it even already works for Canadian dollars via Google play funds) so you can download here:
      Pokémon GO 0.29.0 APK Download by Niantic, Inc. - APKMirror | http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/niantic-inc/pokemon-go/pokemon-go-0-29-0-release/pokemon-go-0-29-0-android-apk-download/
      And then run it like a normal, non-play store android app! You sign in with a google ID, and there's already some locations prepped for Pokestops and Poke Gyms!

      Just caught an Onix today, so hyped. Level 7 woot! Got over 25+ unique types over the last few days. Pro tip, use incense while walking for better results. Don't waste candies on powering up pokemon as you'll evolve them anyways and gain higher Combat Point variants. If you want a Pikachu, walk away from the starters 3-5 times. @Blue Dragon told me that tip, might be fake.

      I just dled it. I haven't had any time to go wander for some pokemon yet but my adventure to catch them all begins now!!

      Also that tip about pikachu isn't a fake. I saw someone do it on youtube legit. You gotta make them respawn 4 times and then pikachu appears

      The real question that needs answers - What team and starter did you guys pick?

      Also, what Eevee is best?

      Team Mystic all the way baby, and starters don't really matter. I've caught all 3 so far.

      I started with squirtle and I'm not yet level 5. However I plan on choosing team mystic which I think is the blue team if memory serves me. I haven't had too much time to venture yet because of work

      Anybody else longboard/bike rather than walk when you're out looking for pokemans?

      Roads near me aren't that smooth, so I don't own a longboard. I just go on foot. I heard that the game has issues above 10 MPH but maybe that's dependent on a lot of variables like phone, obstructions, ect. Definitely easier eggs!

      Sadly there isn't much in the ways of pokestops near me. So i have to drive to more interesting places to be able to get anything. So for me i tend to just walk once i arrive somewhere

      Churches, Fancy statues/modern art, War mamorials (ie. gunships, plaques), malls, and public parks are your best bet.

      Caught a lot tonight, pretty pumped!
