There’s no denying that Filipinos are some of the wittiest people when it comes to creating puns. Since the launch of Pokémon Go last week, netizens have already created the hashtag #PokemonhuGOt, made numerous memes, and shared first-hand experiences related to the game. Here’s a roundup of some lines, both cheesy and heartwrenching.
