Pokemon GO now live in the PHL

The hit augmented reality game Pokemon GO is now live in the Philippines, both for Android and iOS devices.

The game went live on Saturday morning, following the roll out in Central and South America.

Pokemon GO has made headlines since the first week of its release, first for its surprising popularity and second for the unexpected effects it had on communities. Although mainly a virtual game, Pokemon GO has encouraged players to go outdoors and explore.

It has, however, caused physical injuries to a few gamers and exposed some to scamming and theft. Authorities from across the globe, including the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), has issued a public service announcement to the public to exercise caution when playing.
