MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles/iReporter Eboy Soledad contributed to this report) – As part of its ongoing war on drugs in the Philippines, the Duterte administration today announced that it will soon launch the “Pushermon Go” app for Apple and Android phones.
Patterned after the mobile game sensation, “Pokéman Go,” the Malacañang app will be rolled out for free to all Filipino mobile phone users who are 21 years old and above. Duterte hopes that this will help his administration to weed out undesirable Filipino and other citizens who are involved in the illegal drug trade.
“Be a pushermon hunter and ‘killect’ them all,” the app promo says.
App users who kill pushermons will earn Digong coins which can be traded for checkered polo shirts in participating outlets. Consolation prices and points can also be earned to redeem for free tsinelas (flip flops), courtesy of Vice President Leni Robredo.
