    looking for some suggestions. it's a bit different from the general vibe of this forum but the creativity around here is abundant. some things i've considered:

    - offering egg hatching. basically some guys in china walking around on your account to get eggs hatched. high level players would like this i think

    - pokestop farming. simple. walk from stop to stop as soon as their cooldowns reset...

    - sell pokeballs. basically a version of the above, but in this case we just discard whatever is not a pokeball. we could even sell ultra balls etc. just discard everything but these balls when farming pokestops. or would such a service basically not get ordered since everyone will just buy pokestop farming and discard unwanted stuff themselves?

    SEO-wise we're doing a mix of sarkar kumar and will very soon do a round of leith's pbn... targeting "pokemon go accounts" to begin with

    Can't you just use bots to level up the character?

    yes I have something called pokemon go++ which so many high level players use.

    I can't see this being viable, did you check this with a focus group?

    In my opinion it was a really dumb move for you to show this niche on BHW. You'll get some help and a lot of competition from some people that will know what they are doing with it. Would be better to find a couple people you trust and work out ideas with instead!

    Metapod for €4.20? Way too expensive. Also, the weedle is a picture of a metapod.
    €14.11 for a Pikachu? It's not even good.



    Everyone knows about this niche already.

    Everyone knows about Pokemon Go, not everyone would know or think about setting up a Pokemon Go shop like this. Now those people have a blueprint of what to build.

    im interested about your seo approach and how it will get you if you don't resign within 2 months, because thats one of the most competetive niches righ now

    >> seo will not be the primary sales method. when a game niche is very new, people don't actually know what they want to buy in a game yet. they know when they reach certain bottleneck levels. right now people arent highlevel enough yet to have very specific needs(services) excepts accounts. i did identity egg hatching as a service to people who are pretty much maxed out. if it will last longer than 2 months? i hope so. i will be here for those 2 months for sure

    I'm interested in Pokemon Go account.

    >> you mean fresh, bot-ready accounts? they cost about one cent each on taobao.com. if you know chinese you can buy it. i have no interest in reselling this B2B

    Can't you just use bots to level up the character?

    >> they are indeed botted. until today anyway. this morning all bots stopped working due to a game update. we are now buying accounts from actual players. the sell to us section is being updated for this purpose

    extremely difficult niche to be involved in right now, but wish you all the best nonetheless

    >> there are only 2-3 other people with shops like this. though i know 2 others who will launch soon

    You price is really high you know random pokemon 17€ and normal pokemon not even rare 4€ who will buy them?

    Metapod for €4.20? Way too expensive. Also, the weedle is a picture of a metapod.
    €14.11 for a Pikachu? It's not even good.

    >> pokemon locations change around all the time. what is common (thus cheap) for you may be a seldom find to someone else (thus worth the cost). we take a bit of an average and the accounts are leveled in new zealand so NZ common/rare rules would apply.... we have more sea monsters for example

    >> picture updated. thank you


    In my opinion it was a really dumb move for you to show this niche on BHW. You'll get some help and a lot of competition from some people that will know what they are doing with it. Would be better to find a couple people you trust and work out ideas with instead!

    >> i know all people on BHW who would be capable of cloning my niche and i am confident none of them can clone my niche. they have not been able to for the past 11 years and i talk to them daily on skype

    C&D comes in 1, 2, 3...

    >> ive survived takedowns by paypal and the worldbank http://www.geek.com/games/paypal-gives-notice-to-wow-gold-sellers-after-blizzard-complains-1309751/ http://www.mmoshift.com/blog/2011/0...-wow-included-done-by-infodev-the-world-bank/

    Very cool! I actually dont see that many people taking advantage of this craze..

    >> there's plenty but very few launched these kind of ecommerce services

    Looks nice - would be better with custom domain name

    If I may remark that half circle of yellow under the pokemon should be other color

    The rest is good,

    Cheers

    The first problem i see is there was a ban wave from people using gps spoofing on their phones to "teleport" across the nation. The game has a check to see if you move an obscene distance in a short period. So if someone shoots you their info, and you log in while physically in china and walk around there is a chance the whole account gets banned. Accounts getting banned would be bad for business. Other than that there are always nerds around with fat wallets and no time.
