Techdirt Podcast Episode 136: Pokémon Gone?

from the checking-in dept

Just over a year ago, when Pokémon Go was taking the world by storm, we dedicated an episode of the podcast to discussing what made it so successful, and ended up with some differing predictions about what its future would be. Now, with the hype long and truly over but the game still far from dead (though just how far is up for debate), it’s time to revisit the subject and figure out who, if anyone, was right about the future of Pokémon Go.

I stopped playing it; they killed what made it fun when it launched.

It became clear that the game was less and less what I signed up for when it became public.

Less /hunting for Pokemon/ and drawing users to new and interesting areas.

More ‘gym battle type blah’ with their crappy battle system and pay to easily win items.
