Three years ago, when the Pokémon GO craze first arrived in Singapore, the augmented reality smartphone game started taking over the lives of pretty much everyone who downloaded it.

It was no surprise to see people glued to their phones 24/7, and wandering around public places trying to “catch” Pikachus, Squirtles, and Bulbasaurs.

This obsession to catch as many Pokémon as possible even led to a bunch of accidents and unfortunately, even deaths.

Although the craze has faded quite a bit over the last three years, old people loyal fans are still playing it eagerly and Pokémon GO is still raking in quite a lot of money.

Man Steps Into Dog Poop While Pokémon Hunting

One avid Pokémon fan, in particular, Chan Kit Leong, had an interesting story to share about one of his many Pokémon GO adventures.

The Malaysian man told World Of Buzz about how he was out hunting pokémons at night after a day of work. Since it was dark, he was not able to see where exactly he was headed. At one point, his foot landed in something soft.

I think we all know what’s coming next. 

Yep, he had landed in dog poop.

Although it was a pretty gross situation, his friend encouraged him to go on and to look at the accident on a positive note. Ever heard of the Chinese superstition “step on dog poop and luck will be with you”?

I haven’t, but apparently it exists.

The friend even speculated that maybe, just maybe, he might be able to catch a Shiny Mewtwo that night. (These are pretty rare and hard to come by.)

He Catches A Shiny Mewtwo Right After

Turns out his friend was right, because luck was indeed on his side that night, and Kit Leong managed to capture a Shiny Mewtwo!

Crazy coincidence?

I’m pretty sure his friend was psychic.

Obviously overjoyed at how the night turned out in the end, he shared the story on his own Facebook page and also to the Pokémon Go [Malaysia] page.

A lot of the other Pokémon fans in the group were impressed, and they also reinforced the dog-poop-giving-you-good-luck superstition.

So next time you really want life to go your way, make sure you find a pile of dog poop to step into I guess. You never know how great it might turn out!

Pokémon GO Is Still Popular

Although the Pokémon GO craze has died down quite a lot among young people (rumours have it that they’re now interested in the Goody Feed app instead), I still spot a number of aunties and uncles playing it on public transport and also in shopping malls.

There’s also an active Pokémon GO Singapore Facebook group, where gamers share their latest finds and tips and tricks to each other. They also use it to trade Pokémons among each other.

I guess what makes this game so exciting to many isn’t just the game itself, but also the team spirit that it fosters – meeting new people, chatting with them online and going pokemon hunting together etc.

How much can you earn from delivering food with foodpanda in Singapore? We tried it out for you, and the amount is apparently not what we’ve expected:

Who knows, maybe we’ll still see people going around trying to catch Pokémon 10 years down the road.

After all, we can’t deny the fact that it is definitely an iconic game.
