The long wait is over! The Philippines is finally included in the latest roll out of Niantic’s phenomenal augmented reality game – Pokemon GO. The Filipino fans who have been patiently waiting for this day to come could not contain their excitement. Everyone’s just out and catching all the Pokemons that they can catch.
On Twitter, Pokemon Go is the top trending topic as of this writing with Pikachu, Charmander and Bulbasaur on 7th, 8th and 9th spots respectively.
Facebook is also flooded with Pokemon Go photos and statuses. This game is obviously taking us all by storm!
Not all though are impressed with the game. Some critics are saying that this would just make us all unproductive and that the game in itself is dangerous as it would require you to go out and haunt for Pokemons. Still, there’s no sign that the fans are slowing down. Everyone’s just hyper like a kid.
Earlier in July, Filipinos got an initial taste in playing Pokemon Go but was later on shut down by Niantic due to make way for authorized users.
Aside from the Philippines, Pokemon Go has been officially released today in Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Solomon Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, and Palau.
