Why Pokemon Go is a Scam
Pokemon Go recently decided to release an update to the mobile game in which it removed some broken features, updated others and improved the UI slightly. All in all it was your standard update until you start playing and realize that it’s now become significantly harder to play. Before the update I noticed that the higher I rose in rank, the more Pokemon would escape from balls, which made sense because I was encountering more challenging monsters with Combat Power in the triple digits.
Where it became problematic was when the same thing was happening with Pokemon at level 10 and 60. Technically speaking as I get stronger, these weaker Pokemon should not be a challenge but they are, and after this update they are even harder resulting in the need to buy more Pokeballs in order to be prepared for a rare Pokemon that might pop up. In addition to all of this, as you grow in rank free Pokeballs that you get from Pokestops populate WAY less often. Coincidence? Don’t make me laugh.

How to Fix Pokemon Go on the next Update
You have to commend the programmers for both being smart and dumb at the same time. It’s genius to get us to spend money this way but also dumb because they have so many ways to get us to take out our wallets that won’t insight nerd rage. It makes more sense to me that STRONG Pokemon would escape, not Pokemon at levels I used to catch casually. How about making the rare Pokemon more challenging or just have more rare Pokemon pop up more regularly giving us something waste balls on that not only makes sense but fulfills the need to “catch them all”. There are almost 1,000 Pokemon at this point, you have no real excuses.
Making low level Pokemon stronger is not the way to repay the people that made this game a hit.
