Twirling your finger causes you to throw a curve ball. While I haven't seen it curve on its own I have certainly intentionally done it.

What makes me mad is feeding them the raspberries and they still escape and run away.
I've done curve balls, but they don't generally have funky sparkles around them when they curve. First time i've seen that happen, and it was after a razzberry. maybe that caused it, I dont know. but it pissed me off >:(
<Zapata Prime> I smell Stanley... And he smells good!!!

When you spin the curve ball to the max it sparkles... When my hands get sweaty my accuracy goes all over because it messes with the touch sensor.. Also if you have you phone plugged in to a cheap charger the interference can really mess with the sensor as well .

I've never, ever seen it do that before. I was throwing like I was before. I don't think my fingers or screen were covered in anything..

Hmm, others have reported similar things.. so it could be just crap game mechanics.. Does it happen with specific pokemon? maybe they can deflect them at higher levels?

It was a rather high level Eevee. Maybe. I don't know. But I have seen pokemon actually knock a pokeball away, as well as dodge. I don't know why they'd add another mechanic for pokemon to escape capture.

So...  It's just about collecting, right?  You don't actually do anything with them once you've collected them?

Chicken For Lunch has been buying lures I believe, they posted about it on FB yesterday

There were so many people out yesterday playing Go it was surprising, even at the bar. Nintendo's share price doubled after the launch -> http://www.cnet.com/news/nintendo-shares-more-than-doubled-since-pokemon-go-launch/


My kids been playing since CDN launch, but ^ this kind of thing is something I only heard about today -- businesses using this viral game for advertising. SMRT!

Some cafe in the US figured out the ROI on buying lures and it turns out it's actually pretty good. I'll see if I can find the article, they crunched the numbers for other business owners.

McDonalds is buying its own Stops and Gyms..

From what I've heard, its very worth it for most business.

Chicken for Lunch is doing it down town, but I think we might have mentioned that already.

I think they are just using existing stops/gyms. Mcdicks has made a deal with the Pokemon company to make all restaurants stops and/or gyms.

Walked a few km to hatch some egg, used a lucky egg to double XP and evolved a bunch of Pokemon.

I should note that the walk is a about 6km and something I was doing before Pokemon.  Just have been slacking lately. Felt good.

So many other players out there this game really connected with a lot of people.
