Like many of you, if not most of you, I’ve been crazy addicted to Pokemon Go. Every 27 – 33 year old that has played Pokemon on gameboy back in 1996 is getting so many nostalgic memories. The biggest difference is, this time you play through virtual reality where you have to literally walk miles to catch a Pokemon or fight in a Pokemon gym.
For example, you can get rare eggs that hatch to a Pokemon, in order for the rare egg to hatch, you have to walk 5 kilometers while the game on your phone is open and registering your movement, you can’t do it through driving as it will detect you’re going to fast. The Pokemon above I spotted at Costa while grabbing coffee.
I can’t believe I actually drove super slow around the neighborhood yesterday to fake walking while the app registers my walking, I did for like 5 minutes, the app registered 200 meters, I got bored and went home and figured I’ll just do my normal daily walking activities and it will register everything.
The game revolves around walking and the stories you hear are hilarious, so many end up walking to a Pokemon gym and find several other people standing there too. Instead of guys going out for “Gaz” in Kuwait, they now go drive about to catch Pokemons! What a time to be alive.
This guy literally walks at 8 in the morning from Marina Crescent to Kuwait Scientific Center and back, just to catch some Pokemons. I couldn’t make this stuff up even if I wanted to. Now if this isn’t the best exercise app out there, I don’t know what is.
Pokemon Go is not available in Kuwait yet, but there are means of downloading the game, just ask around you’ll find many who already did and can show you how.
