On the heels of the news that Pokemon Go could potentially drop in Asia within the next few days, we found ourselves wondering: is the Philippines really ready for this insane online phenomenon?

What about Manila Bay or Manila Ocean Park? Is it ready for the influx of swarming Pokemon trainers searching for Staryus and Poliwags? LA's Santa Monica pier certainly wasn't.

On a more personal note, what about our relationships? Are we strong enough not to get into a fight with our boyfriend/girlfriend over who gets to catch the Pikachu that shows up in the middle of a movie? Or low-key quick enough not to turn an anniversary date into a break up?

And by that we mean next-level obsessed with catching them all.

Despite the risks involved.

Although some people are luckier than others.

Ultimately, if Pokemon Go can get people to go out, explore the world, and engage with one another more, what's the harm? Especially if the search for imaginary monsters could potentially lead to more situations like this:
