Any time the game freezes just as you’re about to catch that Snorlax you’ve been tracking for the last 20 minutes and you’re just so angry you want to throw your phone away, but you’re full of dread that you won’t be able to play Pokémon anymore – Take a deep breath and have three shots…

When you’ve run out of Pokéballs and are pawning off your possessions in a desperate attempt to get one last sweet hit of Poké-action – Being the best there ever was isn’t cheap; take a shot of whatever booze is nearby…

Every time you spot someone walking by, phone in hand, glassy eyed, chasing virtual phantoms as an escape from their dull life, only to realise it’s your own reflection in the glass – Just finish your drink. Finish every drink…
