So recently, PokemonGo is the one thing nobody can stop talking about – or playing. While some of us have quit Facebook to get away from the madness, the majority of us just want to catch them all.


As I was playing PokemonGo in bed – I can reach about two Pokestops from there – I realised just how much we resemble one another. I mean, just take a look at these.

That’s all the funny Pokemons I’ve caught so far. As you might be able to tell, I haven’t really been active in catching or evolving them. They are still cute to collect though. Anyhow, if you haven’t, do follow me on Facebook and Instagram for more updates. I mean, I did catch a real-life squirtle after all.
