Pinoy players have been searching high and low to catch those little critters after Pokémon GO officially launched in the country over the weekend.
Despite the excitement and fandom from old and new Pokémon fans, not all establishments have been welcoming to players looking to hunt inside their premises.
One of them is Xavier School in San Juan City, which had to remind its student body, faculty, and even outsiders of their campus policies.
The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority also had one of its buildings in Makati City designated as the Wallflowers Pokémon Gym.
But the government agency had more lenient regulations, allowing outsiders to enter provided they met entry conditions.
The augmented-reality game, which makes players go out and literally hunt these pocket monsters in various locations, has become the new craze among mobile users.
It is a tribute to the hit TV series that aired locally in the late '90s.
