Stomp Team and Stompers try out Pokemon Go -- and none of us can stop

Unless you have been living under a rock, you would have heard about Pokemon Go and how it became available for download in Singapore today (Aug 6).

Stomp sent out a request via WhatsApp for users to share their own experiences with the game earlier. Check out their results by browsing the gallery.

Stomper Junhao also said, "Never have I ever walked so much in my life."

According to Stomper Ranjith, "When you make a new Pokemon Go account, they first give you 3 basic Pokemon to catch. Walk away 5 times and Pikachu will appear."

Try this and let us know  if it works! Share more tips and more photos by writing in to or WhatsApping 9384 3761.

In addition, the Stomp Team tried out the game for themselves too, because how could we not? Here are 31 thoughts one of our journalists had while playing Pokemon Go.
