Initially I had thought I would just ignore gyms. However, I found as an item hoarder who cannot just trash/delete items, I quickly reached the point where my inventory was full of healing potions and I had to use some in order to store more pokeballs. The only reason to use healing potions is if you've been doing gym battles and so I started. I find it quite fun learning all the strategy involved. Looking at the team you're going to fight, figuring out which of your pokemon will do best against it and seeing if you can win. I also enjoy the animations of the special powers.
And its got me going out for walks and runs again which in turn makes me feel less stressed and happier. Win/Win!
I'd like to commend the majority of the participants in this thread for your civil discussion on what can often be a highly divisive subject and one that people can get really passionate and heated over.
I have removed a couple posts and replies to them and I'd like to make a couple quick notes before I reopen the thread:
Keep meta-commentary how you think the thread will go to yourself. Adding "I wonder how long until the inevitable flame war locks this up. Worth it," to the very first post invites the conversation to go downhill.
Political threads on paizo.com can and do go just fine, especially when we all come to the thread in good faith, looking for discussion or debate rather than an argument.
If you really and truly believe that a thread you are about to post is going to end in flames or locking, then you need to rewrite your post, or post it somewhere other than paizo.com.
The paizo.com and gamer community draws people from so many different backgrounds and beliefs and a very diverse set of opinions is par for the course. Remain polite, take deep breathes and step away from the thread if you feel you are getting fighty about something, flag if needed and move on.
Labeling an entire political party as "rednecks" is inappropriate. There is no need for name-calling when having a discussion.
I debated leaving this thread locked due to the inflammatory natures of the first post, but the community has done a bang up job of keeping the ongoing discussion on topic and in a manner that encourages calm, respectful discussion, so I'm going to go ahead and leave it open for now.
Additionally, if you feel like something has not been removed that should be, you can contact email@example.com. Thanks!
In the immortal words of Daniel Tiger:
Find a way to play together
And find a way to share with each other
Playing is great
Playing together is so much better
Find a way to play together
Each one of us brings our own special gifts
I've been playing over the weekend and I can recognize when the app has frozen and I'm pretty good at restarting it very quickly :P
I've been having quite a bit of fun with it so far and have already found a good running route that hits up a bunch of pokestops.
Currently: Level 12
I've checked in on breaks today and noticed that the post office across the street has changed hands several times already today. I tried one battle at our local park, and lost horribly. I didn't realize that the pokemon they showed you was not the only thing you might be fighting. So I quickly went from "Oh I can take that monster" to "... Well looks like I've lost quite a few HP..."
I have never played any iteration of Pokemon before. This is incredibly fun.
Praise Sara Marie, because the 3rd Party spell [summon horror] list includes 1 neutral monster, not affected by protecion from evil. :D
Blessed are those that support 3rd Party Publishers, for 3PP's are a cornerstone of our industry, and shoring up one part of our hobby's foundations, helps ensure the stability of the community.
May your neutral monsters never seek alignment advice online and may you always be protected from evil.
Blessed are those sow seeds of friendness into online communities for the harvest of favorites is mighty and occasionally manifests tangibly.
May you remember your tears of joy when you need it most and may forum surprises always delight you.
May your PaizoCon seminar expieriances always be so positive and may your nerdgasams always leave you giddy.

Jeff, Tonya and I discussed several ideas to help support GM's at Gen Con with some kind of pick up system, but the scenarios for Gen Con will not use the map releasing in July and the logistics are too complex at this time, so it will not be happening for 2016. It is something we continue to consider for the future, but we have no announced plans at this time (i.e.: maybe in the future, but no promises or guarantees).
As a heads up, Customer Service is scheduled to drop Gen Con store credit onto GM accounts the week of July 25th- 29th. If you haven't seen it by August 1st, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org and Tonya and we can make sure its on your account before the 4th.
Folks, we've moved the July auth back to July 21st. This also moves the last day for opt-in for picking up at Gen Con to July 21st at 10am PST. However, to assist us in packing our trucks for the show, if you know you will be opting in, please make that selection as soon as possible.
TL;DR looks like that "one of these years" trip to PaizoCon isn't going to happen for me. Not after I hear about how one of my friends was treated by its attendees, and not after I hear that PaizoCon staff basically blew it off. No, I'm not going into specifics--that isn't the point. This is b~~@#$#!, and I want no part of it.
Encourage your friend to contact myself, Chris Lambertz or Jeff Alvarez as soon as possible. Jeff's contact number is in the program book, Chris and myself can be contacted via email (email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org or our personal emails listed in the contact section) or by heading to the PaiozCon store. The three of us are the PaizoCon staff that would be contact points for this and none of us have been informed of any issues. Paizo takes harassment and the safety of our attendees very seriously and we would appreciate a chance to resolve this with your friend.

Yeah, I always leave a lanyard in my backpack since a lot of cons use pins or flimsy string holders.
The default badge for PaizoCon is of the white string nature. We do have the Pathfinder lanyards in the convention store though!
