Pokemon Go still has negative impressions to some lawmakers and religious institutions.

Albay solon blames players of the latest location-based augmented reality game (Pokemon Go) for worsening the traffic situation in Metro Manila A congressman has blamed Pokemon Go players for worsening the already horrendous traffic situation in Metro Manila.

“Why pick on our pobreng provincianos to solve Metro Manila traffic? Pokemon-playing is a greater aggravation of Metro Manila traffic,” Albay Rep. Joey Salceda said in a statement released on Tuesday.

As per Salceda, Pokemon Go players who are playing inside their vehicles should be blamed for horrendous traffic experience.

“Pokemon-playing in private cars pose more threat of aggravation to Metro Manila traffic than provincial buses,” Salceda said.

He also compares the number of private cars and provincial buses in which 2.5 million private vehicles roam in Metro Manila while provincial buses are only at a smaller digits of 3,300.

He further discussed that this game app makes the drivers to go slow so that they could catch Pokemons. They can also go on standby on the areas that believed to be hot spots for catching those pocket monsters.

“‘Dahan-dahan, may Pikachu dito. Itabi mo sandali, may Lures dito.’ If you are rich enough to maintain a private car, you must be rich enough to (afford for) yourself and your kids an Android, iPad or iPhone. Multiply that by the 2.5 million cars in Metro Manila,” Salceda said.

Oligarchs continue to embrace the latest free-to-play location-based augmented reality game despite being banned by churches and some government officials. They also create "lugar parties" during weekends. Smart and Globe telecommunications offer free data to Pokemon Go players as well.
