The hype is real, people. Confession: I was never a fan of Pokemon. Never watched the show. Never collected the cards. Never played any of the games. What little I know about it is from overhearing about it from people, reading about it, and from watching a few online videos referencing about Pokemon.
But here I am enthusiastically waiting for Pokemon GO to be released in the Philippines. Not because I’m a fan but the game seems interesting enough. And it is too much of a global phenomenon to ignore.
Pokemon GO is a location-based mobile app of the Nintendo affiliate The Pokemon Company. It is developed by Niantic Labs. Pokemon GO allows players to be Pokemon Masters and “Catch ‘me all.” Using the GPS and camera of their smartphones, players can catch and train Pokemons. The good thing about this is players are encouraged to go out and explore. The bad thing? It’s highly addictive.
I am one of the many Filipinos who check the App store every now and then so I could quickly download and play Pokemon Go once it reaches the tropical shores of the Philippines.
Here’s the good news: freenet and PayMaya are all set to help us be the very best and maximize the potential of Pokemon Go.
