Here's how the Pokemon Go trailer compares to real life

In a perfect world Pokemon Go would be exactly like the trailer - lots of happy pretty people having fun with their fighting pets. While it's so much fun and we absolutely love it - need some Pokemon Go tips? -  the reality is sometimes a little different. There's just a bit more crashing, waiting for things to load or the always fun unspinnable pokéstops. With that in mind lets compare and contrast the actual trailer with the harsh and uncaring real world.
