An Open Letter to John Hanke & Niantic
Yang Liu

I understand the article, but disagree completely. For me, pokevision is cheating.

I play pokemon less now, because of pokevision. I wanted to be the first person in my circle of friends to have ‘found’ a rare pokemon — that was the big draw for me. But now, everyone has them all already, because of pokevision. Really spoiled it for me.

It’s like having a treasure hunt where everyone already knows where the treasure is.

Yang, personally I think you’re being slightly untruthful. If you wanted to give an interim/non-permanent solution, you wouldn't have shown all pokemon, anywhere, and how long they’d be around. That wasn’t in the spirit of the game.

Like what you read? Give Oliver a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
