    I am actually still playing Pokemon Go. I wasn't playing it for the hype, I was playing it because I actually enjoyed it.

    I'm still playing and enjoying the game, Pokemon Go makes my commute to and from work a lot more interesting also.

    I currently only need a Dragonite to have everything it's currently possible to obtain in GEN 1, minus the exclusive regional and unreleased legendary Pokemon. I have enough candy for a Kabutops, just need to find a good Kabuto to evolve.

    I'm currently making good progress on GEN 2, however its going to be a long while before that's anywhere near complete.

    In our big local park theirs often a lot of people still playing, especially when a good nest appears there. I've joined a Facebook group for players in my town, theirs easily a couple of hundred people still active in my area.

    People still playing but I never met any of them. Most accounts are bots but who cares.

    I forgot
    Active players dropped significantly after like a month or two when it came out. I think even when Gen 2 released there wasn't really a giant surge like everyone thought there'd be.

    I'd probably still play it, if they didn't just blanket block anyone who so much as says the word "root" on their Android phone. Since my phone doesn't like Magisk there's basically nothing I can do.

    Ugh my coworker still plays, but I think it might be because he never really played a real pokemon game. Me? I would rather just play a real pokemon game on my phone. I can play up to Black/White2 thanks to Drastic. Go is just so... boring.

    I live in a hole, and I have no car to travel. There's literally nothing but ratatas and pidgeys. Also the closest pokéstop requires like 30 minutes of walk, and that's only one.
