11 Reasons I Love Playing Pokemon Go

Yes, I have jumped on the bandwagon and yes, I am one of those sad people that wanders around glued to their phone trying to 'catch them all'.

Read this tweet

Am I the only one who has no idea what this whole Pokemon thing going on at the moment is?!

I was a little bit judgey (ok, a l o t) and vowed I would never play it.. Now, a month on, I'm completely addicted and I'm on level 14..
So, here are some of the reasons why I am obsessed.
  1. I am the biggest collector of things you'll ever meet, so the fact I can collect cute little Pokemon characters is a m a z i n g.
  2. It gets you out and about so secretly you're exercising but it doesn't really feel like you are, and isn't that just the best form of exercise?
  3. You normally go out 'catching' with your boyfriend/girlfriend or friends and that = being social (unless you go out playing on your own and then you really a r e addicted my friend..).
  4. Playing Pokemon makes you feel like you've actually d o n e something that particular day, rather than sitting in your room being bored waiting for the next day to arrive.
  5. Going past Pokestops and collecting Pokeballs feeds your Pokemon addiction and woah, I have 50 POKEBALLS?!
  6. You can eat chocolate whilst you're walking and then look, calorie intake + calories you're burning = no calories consumed #win.
  7. I actually feel g o o d at something when OMG I'VE CAUGHT A GROWLITHE and OMG LOOK AWW A CUTE JIGGLYPUFF!
  8. Walking 2km, 5km or 10km and hatching an egg so you get that 'ohmygoodness what is it going to be?! This is too exciting - like opening a Christmas cracker and wondering what awesome (shit) gift you'll get this time?!' feeling.
  9. I l o o o v e how much the app drains my battery (lol jk, it sucks - I lost 20% battery in how many seconds?!)
  10. You know you've accomplished life when you catch Pikachu, even if it is only CP 14..
  11. You're just as cool as all of the 13 year old's playing it, so just remember that - you're a kid at heart really.

Do you play Pokemon Go?xoxo

  1. My dad actually bought me a cheap android phone so i could play pokemon go, ive been playing pokemon since i was a child and play it all the time on my ds anyway. Pokemon go is rubbish in my area so it gets me further than i usually venture so thats a positive.

    1. That's amazing! I never played it as a child but I'm loving collecting all of the characters - I'm not too interested in fighting them etc. but so far I'm having fun :) Yes, I literally love that you're basically exercising at the same time and exploring different places and getting out and about xo

  2. Hahaha, I completely love this post!! It's such a total gem of a game & so stupidly addicting!!

    1. Thank you! So glad you do! I know, I wish it wasn't so addictive! It's so funny going for a walk and seeing the amount of people who play it haha xo

  3. I was on the pokemon go bandwagon but got bored and deleted the app - I think you've now convinced me to back and re download it and actually get out there and start catching again haha!

    1. Oops, sorry if I've re-ignited your addiction again! I have been out soo many times this week catching different characters haha - it sounds so sad but it's just so fun!xo

  4. Haha love this post sweet girl! I know its a game that has been making headlines for maybe not always the best reasons, BUT I love the good things that come out of it. I heard that a animal shelter started having Pokemon players walk dogs and they had a record number of dogs adopted. Love that you found the positive as well :) (Aside from your battery life! lol)

    1. I'm so glad! Yes.. Some of the stories you hear are horrible but I don't understand how kids are getting themselves into that sort of trouble!? That is such a lovely story - I love that! Yes, the phone battery runs down super quickly but nothing a portable charger can't fix haha!xo

  5. I am not playing Pokemon Go and I am not planning to anytime soon :) I am afraid that if I start, I will get addicted and do nothing more than just trying to catch pokemons and so on, that's why I better stay away from it :) x

    1. It is waaay too addictive! I wasn't planning on playing it at all because I knew I'd get addicted and look where I am now.. haha! So good choice :) xo
