It is 1AM here and I just got back form a rigorous bout of pokemoning. I haven't had that much fun since the game was released.
Tad bummed by the crowds... in that there were none. I was walking around, but there were a handful of cars darting about the small city. Weeeeak! Also, leveled up 5 level 5 gyms and added 'mons. By the time I got home they were all booted already. Meh.
I got a weird catch animation once with 3 wavy yellow streaks rising from the ball. No clue what that was. Haven't found an explanation yet.
