Why I don’t like Pokemon Go?

I’ve been reading a lot of not so good news about Pokemon Go so I already told my son that we will not download this game even it is already available in the Philippines. Last Saturday, I’ve been seeing a lot of Pokemon Go in my newsfeed but I did not pay attention. 

Out of curiosity, my husband asked me to download the app because the Pokemon Go app is not compatible with his phone. #choosy So I downloaded it and tried it, I just look for monsters within our house and I was able to catch two monsters and yun pa lang napagod na ko. Hehehe! I downloaded the game in our Ipad too. 

Last weekend, my son was not allowed to use the Ipad so Sunday afternoon came, he was convincing his daddy to play Pokemon Go. I said no, but my husband said, “sige na, bonding na namin”. I’m not sure if that is really for my son or dahil gusto din niya magplay. Hehehe! So after church, they drove around the village to catch monsters but they did not find any. Hehehe! 

Last Monday, my son asked me to play Pokemon Go. I tried again to look for monsters within our house and I found one. But the following day, I already deleted the app on my phone and my son asked me, why mommy? 

Why I don’t like Pokemon Go?


1. The game is not for me, you need to move just to look and catch the monsters. Knowing me, I’m so lazy to move and I don’t want to go out of the house just to play the game. 

2. I don’t think it is a safe game because your focus is on your phone.

3. You need to be online just to play the game so it means additional cost if I will play it outside because I don’t have wifi connection. 

4. The snatchers are very happy because they see a lot of people playing Pokemon Go, madami sila mabibiktima. Madaling masnatch na ang mga magagandang phone. 

Well, the good thing about Pokemon Go, it makes you move so nakakaexercise ka na rin. A good bonding with your friends or family kung sabay-sabay kayo na maghunt. 

Let see this weekend, if my husband and son will play the Pokemon Go since I haven’t deleted the app in our Ipad.

  1. Me too! I don't mind if I'm not 'in'.. But I don't see any use or value of that game to me.. It's just for fun or I think out of curiosity. I really don't want to start because I don't wanna get hooked. Same with the farm ville or candy crush. I choose not to try out those games because I think there's really no use playing it... It's not about being kill joy but I'd rather spend my time doing things that matters the most. Kanya kanya namang trip yan. If others prefer it, for me hindi ko sya type. So to each his own lang talaga.

    1. I played farmville several years ago but I stopped because I don't want to plant anymore. hehehe! I still have candy crush app on my phone because I can play that game when I'm out and I need to kill time, it doesn't need internet. But Pokemon game is not for me. Agree, to each his own. :)

  2. I too don't like this game as I also find it a waste of time and not beneficial. I ban the kids from playing it as I rather they focus on other more enriching games like Chess or sports.

  3. I've seen a lot of funny videos about people falling everywhere because the were too focused on playing Pokemon Go, makes me not want to try it out. I think this game really requires a lot of time.

  5. I did try Pokemon Go out curiosity, then, I deleted the app. First, because it drained my phone battery, second the app crashes a lot due to high in demand, third it just not fun for me as to my kids. So, no Pokemon Go na sa house namin. I agree Sis, ayoko ko din maglakad lakad na kong saan saan just to get pokemon.

  6. Hello sis! I don't like this game too because sometimes it will affects on our family communication, sometimes naka focus nalang sa phone pag may gagawin di na nagagawa ng maayos. So it's better not to download the apps nalang :) Kahit sabihin na bitter hahahah!
