So, I Tried Playing Pokémon Go In a Moving Car. Yes, In Lagos Nigeria.

If you have not heard about Pokémon Go in the past week or days, please, what village are you from, again? The game which has captivated the attention of millions has been on an upward spiral. However, it isn’t available in Nigeria yet. But did I let that stop me? ……. Of course not.

I used a VPN and cleared my Google play cache to download it, but honestly, you can just go ahead to APK mirror (A very reliable APK archive). It is harmless and malware-free  (I used that method for my other device). Anyway, after downloading, I couldn’t find any Pokemon to capture at home or the office.

Is this life?

They were around me, alright, but far from where I stayed which meant I had to walk a long mile. Yes, I know that the game is all about walking and finding Pokemon, but I couldn’t let one game make me lose all the flesh I struggled to gain. So, I chilled till I was invited to a press event at Lekki and yup I found them while in the car.

My Joy after seeing Pokemon in Lagos.

The only problem was, it was either the car was moving too fast thereby making me miss a Pokemon or it was too slow, but I caught two Pokemon around Civic Center and Lekki Toll Gate.

Another thing that made me almost pull my braids out was when I saw potential Pokestops at places that were so far away, there was one at Tafewa Balewa Square

Pokemon go Nigeria 2

 

At Muri Okunola Park

Pokemon go Nigeria 5

To name a few.

Unfortunately, the car wasn’t headed towards those directions 🙁

Would I have seen all these without being in a moving car? I don’t know cos I didn’t find out because I can’t go for long walks because I would become slimmer if I did.

(Hey, don’t you dare give me this? look ?)

Was this frustrating as hell? You bet it was.

Would I play it again?

Sadly, this shii is addicting, you would always want to see if there is a Pokemon around you. So yeah for every time I go out, Pokemon Go it is.

I really can’t wait for it to be OFFICIALLY available in Nigeria, so we can have more Pokemon to capture. However, something tells me it’s going to take a while to get here. #Fingerscrossed.
