I hate Pokemon. Always have. I’m 30 years old; I grew up with kids around me playing it. Pokemon has been revived now with Pokemon Go. Those same kids, all grown up, but with hair on their balls now are playing with Pokemon.
I don’t know why I hated Pokemon players so much? Or maybe I don’t? Maybe I’m just jealous of that fact that I was never brought into the Pokemon world when I was a kid. I’m sure I would have liked it. I mean I did like a lot of stupid shit when I was a kid.
Seeing these Pokemon Go players running around Singapore catching Pokemon got me thinking. I thought of an app that is designed using the same reward system. But instead of finding Pokemon, people would find missing children or pets. Is this a stupid idea? Probably. I don’t know. What do I know?
But if possible we can finally put these players to good use. Yeah, I know that missing children and pets do not have a GPS tracker on them, and this will make it hard to find them, but maybe we can reward Pokemon players with fake gold coins via the app, or maybe real gold coins? Again, what do I know? Win-win for all, The world will be a better place, less grieving mothers, and pet owners worldwide.
Ps. If you decide to run with this idea and make such as an app, do get me on board.
