    Its fun to find things you didn’t expect to see. Its like a treasure hunt. I never gave my daughter a map to locate Easter eggs. I am a grandma, I didn’t know anything about Pokémon before this game. I am walking more, having fun with my kids and grandkids.
    I’ve heard people say it’s not fun anymore since the maps were removed. I say learn to enjoy working for what you want!

    I only used Fly GPS to stop my avatar from drifting during gym battles, so I wouldn’t get kicked out with an error and not be allowed in. Now I’m too afraid to try to take down or build up gyms, because I don’t want to go out only to waste my time….
