Urban-enviroment

anonymous asked:

What does your second to last point on the pokemon go list mean? The one about client and server side pokemon

Pokemon spawns are determined by the server, meaning their same for everyone.

It also means that Pokemon are spawned more densely in high-populated areas to reduce server strainl.

Except

This completely fucks over players who don’t live in cities. Like either the game’s practically unplayable or you’re tripping over Dragonites every 5 seconds. 

It’s mind-boggling how unbalanced it is.

My suggestion would be that, in the first example, a player playing Pokemon GO in that area would have the game start spawning in Pokemon client-side (as in, not registered on the servers) in order to bring their expierience more in line with somebody who lives in an urban enviroment.
