A new app set the world on fire earlier this week. Pokémon Go! Yep, it’s that same Pokémon franchise you’ve heard of, possibly played yourself and collected its tazos. Once again this franchise steals the show. From people in the States almost having car accidents to catch Pikachu, to others trying to break into places at night to claim a gym, we can all agree that this app is driving us crazy.


This app is SUPPOSEDLY not yet available in Egypt, but who are you kidding?! We are Egyptians; nothing can stop us. But we still face the following 6 struggles:


1. The Internet Bundle!!!


Internet is a nightmare in Egypt, but we never hated telecommunication companies and their stupid ‘baka’ the way we do when it stops us from catching a Pokémon.

2. Getting Off The Couch


This app requires you to get your feet wet and get off the couch. We are past the ‘brota’ era.

3. Walking Around Egypt’s Street

Pokémon Go is popular, but pointing your camera at a stranger in Egypt is never a tolerant act.

4. It’s Addictive 


Once you download this app, something will take over you and who knows when and how this addiction will go away.

5. Catching A Pokémon Without Wasting A Poké Ball

It requires talent my friend.

6. The Heat

Nobody –unless forced- will walk down Cairo’s street in this blazing heat.

 But that’s not the case anymore folks.
