If you’re a fan of enslaving small animals and getting them to attack each other for your personal pleasure, and happen to be in Bombay on the 23rd of July, ‘Pokewalk Mumbai’ is something you might be interested in.
The Pokewalk 2016 will begin at 5:00pm right outside Chuchgate station on a Saturday and will undoubtedly congest the area to levels only comparable to Churchgate station on a Saturday. The entire point of this march is to presumably generate sympathy for Pokemon fans who have long been persecuted for their alternate lifestyle and unnatural ways, so be prepared to find scores of people who grew up in the 90s but never quite grew out of them.
All attendees are required to have a smartphone with the Pokemon Go app installed, so Windows phone users, I’m sorry. Regardless of your feelings towards this game I strongly suggest you attend the Pokewalk, it might be a once in a lifetime opportunity to see hundreds of millennials fall off the embankment at Marine Drive because someone spotted a Kyogre in the water.
For those of you, who don’t know, Pokemon Go is a new Japanese phenomenon that’s taken the world by storm; it just officially hit the US, is making significant gains in Australia & the UK, and is expected to arrive in India sometime soon, despite having several security and ethical discrepancies. Pokemon Go did in one week what thousands of years of PT classes, the Winter Olympics and competitive Quidditch tournaments all failed to do, it made going outside nerdy. But hey, at least it’s not Candy Crush.
Fuck Candy Crush.
When: 23rd July, 5pm-7pm
Where: Churchgate Burger King
