      Is this the first Singaporean guy who has completed his Pokedex with 145 Pokemon?

      Chapman Sim shared his epic Pokemon journey in a Facebook album with screenshots of his catches and snapshots of his plane tickets and travels.

      According to Chapman, he completed his quest to catch 'em all in one month -- completely without cheating or spoofing.

      He wrote:

      "I've been a professional gamer for over a decade and as one of the first few players in the world to complete Pokemon Go (and probably first in Singapore and first in Asia as well).

      "My account is clean and that is another source of pride!"

      He managed to catch region-exclusive Pokemon like Kangaskhan, FarFetch'd, Tauros and Mr. Mime by flying to various countries like Australia and USA.

      He camped at various sites for the exclusive Pokemon. In a Facebook comment, he revealed that he has some days where he spent 12 full hours hunting for Pokemon. 

      True Pokemon master indeed! Check out the gallery to follow him on his Pokemon journey.

       

      There's nothing epic about it.  Too much time on his hands.  Travelling around the world looking at his phone all day.

      I don't think so?  I see lots of people collecting them.

      I never played them - rarely play games on my phone.  I like saving my battery life for important things!

    • 6 employees sacked for playing Pokemon Go during work in Malaysia

       

       

      The Star
      Sep 25, 2016 

      It has fired up gamers all over Malaysia, but now, Pokémon Go has led to some being fired.

      The game has proven to be a huge hit here, but it is game over for some who persistently played it during working hours.

      Six employers have dismissed workers for playing the popular location-based game while at work, reveals a survey by the Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF).

      MEF executive director Datuk Shamsuddin Bardan says the poll on the impact of the game on workers was taken among 150 employers in various sectors.

      "Based on our preliminary findings, six employers, or 4 per cent of the 150 companies, admitted that workers who indulged too much in the game have been dismissed," he tells Sunday Star.

      Other actions taken by employers included advising employees against playing the game during work hours, issuing warning letters and imposing suspensions from work without pay.

      The survey also shows that employers are taking a strong stance against the game with 95 per cent of the respondents saying they do not allow employees to access the app at work.

      "Some 96 per cent also prohibit workers from using the company e-mail address to sign up for the game," Shamsuddin says.

      The survey found that 25 per cent of bosses have caught employees playing the game during work hours.

      “Some 11 per cent of employers also claim that their workers are taking a longer lunch break because of the game,” he says, adding that 50 per cent of poll participants were from the manufacturing sector while the rest were from other industries.

      Employers are also taking it a step further, with 54 per cent wanting to request that game developer Niantic Labs remove PokéStops and Gyms near their offices or work place. PokéStops are spots for players to replenish game items while PokéGyms are where players can go to battle and train their monsters.

      As it continues to “level up” on popularity, the game has spawned a culture of people walking around in search of cyber monsters in their homes, parks, workplaces, commercial areas and even places of worship.The popular game, which requires players to move around in real life to catch not-so-real 'pocket monsters', or Pokémon, has been received with open arms by Malaysians since its launch on Aug 6 here.

      But the addictive, augmented reality game is worrying the MEF to that employees will not be giving their best at work.

      Shamsuddin says 5 per cent of employers also found their workers to be breaching the company’s restricted areas to catch the monsters in the game.

      However, on the flip side, some 19 per cent of employers in the survey — including those in the food and beverage industry — found that the game is good for business.

      "Most employers are still trying to assess the situation. It is too early for us to set a standard policy for all employers on Pokémon Go," says Shamsuddin.

      He says while the hype about the game has fizzled out compared to when it was first launched, employers should adopt a stand that discourages employees from playing on work premises so that it will not affect work performance.

      Event director and Pokémon Go enthusiast Syafiq Nizar Radzi says playing the game during working hours is "extremely unprofessional."

      "Employers should be professional too and strict warnings should been given to the errant worker. But if they refuse to adapt to company policy after that, then a dismissal sounds completely fair," he says.

      Syafiq Nizar says extending lunch hours for any reason is also unprofessional and it is best to keep any recreational activities outside working hours.

      A company executive who wants to be known only as Jean, 31, says employers have every right to ban their employees from playing the game.

      “Some companies have even banned their workers from going on Facebook.

      “However, a dismissal is only fair if the employee has been warned that it is against company policy. They shouldn’t fire at the first shot,” she says.

      Another Pokémon Go player, known only as Simon, says his enjoyment of the game would be affected if employers started removing PokéStops.

      “It is a bit too severe to fire someone just for playing the game. The overall work performance of that person should be considered,” he adds.

    • Dear All,

       

      I need advice on the below on whether this is a civil case or affray?

      Kindly allow me to go into detail on what had happened.

      On 8th Oct, I had embarked the LRT train with a big pack together with my 5 months plus pregnant sister.
      I was kicked from behind for no apparent reason by a man.
      when I turned over to see who kicked me I saw him staring at me and I asked him why did you kick me. He said my bag touches him and then from there I told him that instead of kicking me you should have told me and I will move my bag. I did say one thing to him is why are you so unhappy for? He wanted me to alight at the next stop for further argument Upon alighting, he continues to verbally assault me and my sister. I told him that I am going to make a police report now and he got really angry and hit me in the face. After a long wait for the police to come. During the 30minutes of waiting. I made a fighting gesture in defence since he continuously verbally assaulting my sis and me. CCTV actually captured everything. When he starts to throw punches at me. In my defense, I retaliated with a few punches which only 2 landed.. he didn't admit to hospital. My sister is the one that called the police.( we have waited for about 30mintues before the police arrive) I want to know what is the possible outcome of this situation. I am currently on bail and was asked to report back the police station. Yesterday, I received a call from the IO requesting me and my sister to return to the police station to provide the statement again. According to the IO, the subject statement doesn't match with our statement, therefore, require us to go back again. I'm not sure what is the possible outcome of this issue as this is my very 1st offense. When I called the IO and ask whether will I get myself into trouble, she says probably a fine or a warning. I'm not sure if I will get a jail term. cry.png

      Pokémon GO updated to version 0.41.2 for Android and 1.11.2 for iOS

      Trainers,

      Pokémon GO is in the process of being updated to version 0.41.2 for Android and 1.11.2 for iOS devices. Below are some release notes and comments from our development team.

      • Catch Bonus: Trainers can earn a catch bonus for a Pokémon type as they catch more of a specific type.

      • Updated Gym Training: Trainers can now bring six Pokémon to battle at friendly Gyms. The CP of the Pokémon you are battling may be temporarily adjusted lower for your training session.

      • Egg & Incubator Screens: These will periodically update the distance walked without the Trainer needing to close and reopen the screen.

      • Fixed several audio issues.

      • Decreased the evolution animation time.

      • Minor fixes
