MMDA releases safety tips for playing Pokemon Go

PSA: Remember to look both ways before crossing the street!


( It seems even the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority has caught the Pokemon Go fever. On their Facebook page, they posted some tips and guidelines for Pokemon Go players so they could avoid accidents while hunting for Pokemon.



Huwag maglaro ng Pokemon Go habang tumatawid. Ituon ang mga mata sa kalsada at ugaliing lumingon sa kaliwa’t kanan.

It’s always a bad idea to cross the street while doing something else. Do yourself and passing motorists a favor by focusing on crossing the street instead of multitasking.


Kung ‘di mapigilang maglaro, tumawid gamit ang designated pedestrian footbridges ngunit siguraduhing alisto sa paligid habang naglalakad.

Just make sure not to trip while looking at your mobile phone.


Bawal ang trespassing! Manatili lamang sa mga pampublikong lugar. Kung sakaling may Pokemon sa pribadong lugar, magpaalam muna sa may-ari bago pumasok.

If you don’t want to risk being reported to authorities or being mistaken as a thief then don’t trespass.



Maging alisto sa mga snatchers!

Unfortunately, you can’t roam the streets without fearing for your phone whether it’s day or night. We wonder if we'll start seeing people with their phones strapped to their hands soon...


Huwag mag Pokemon Go habang nagmamaneho ng sasakyan.

Yes, there's a fine under the Anti-Distracted Driving Act, but really, isn't the fear of getting in a terrible accident enough to make you think twice?


Pokemon Go, a mobile game which launched locally on August 6, makes players go out and hunt “pocket monsters” in various locations.
