My daughter ( 7 ) was nuts over it when it came out. But you walk around, try to catch Pokemon, not by battling them and weakening them first, but by just throwing a limited resource (Pokeballs) until you catch one. Then you run out of Pokeballs and there's not much to do unless you are already high level and have spent a lot of time and/or money building a team for gyms. That's the only kind of Pokemon Battle in the game currently, and it's kinda really dull, no real strategy to it at all.

She has no interest in it anymore... I imagine among older Pokemon fans, they're also seeing the game is dull and lacks what made Pokemon interesting in the first place...
