This Is Not Pokemon GO

Any agent who is asked if they are playing Pokemon, should (a) Be ashamed of their poor spycraft at being mistaken for an apokealypse zombie, and (b) Explain that Ingress is the real AR game, Pokemon Go is just the simplified version for children version.

I don't know, this isn't really a rule.

Perhaps this could be extended to say any agent who is asked if they are playing Pokemon, should (a) be immensely ashamed of their poor spycraft at being mistaken for an apokealypse zombie and (b) Explain that Ingress is the real AR game, Pokemon Go is just the simplified children's version.

I don't know. I'd rather be mistaken for playing PoGo when I'm hanging around late at night in a cemetery, rather than being chased off by security while they yell, "stop with your damn seances you weirdo!"

I like to have Ingress up to confuse the PoGoers

I play both. I tell people who ask that pokego is a beach read and ingress is a hard scifi novel. Both awesome- if that's what you're into.

I've been wondering... doesn't pokemon go give us an excellent cover story for wandering in remote areas or zig zaging in the city?

the constant questions about pokiemon from the pokie ppl do get rather annoying, especially sice i never intend on creating a pokie acct

I look on all the attention that Pokemon has garnered as an opportunity to proselytize/recruit. I play both, but definitely much more Ingress. I also refer to Ingress as Hipster PoGo, as in https://goo.gl/images/AhWKP4
