Watch: Six lessons we learned playing Pokémon Go

Seaking wisdom.

Pokémon Go has been out officially in the UK for what, two days now? And yet it's hard to remember a time when it wasn't draining the life from my phone and reacquainting me with that thing healthy people do - walking, I think they call it.

In recognition of the explosive ubiquity of this rather curious mobile game, I did a bit of soul searching and come up with six lessons we've learned playing Pokémon Go. Watch the video below for disparaging remarks about Zubats, strangely named Pokéstops and a neat trick to get yourself blocked from playing the game altogether.

If there's anything you've learned playing Pokémon Go this week, why not let us know in the comments? And if anyone knows where I can get my hands on a Growlithe, that would be extremely useful.
