I’ve seen a lot of “how to stay safe when playing Pokemon Go!” posts out there from avid players. But, one thing that REALLY needs to be discussed is staying HYDRATED while playing the game–because it’s a hot summer, there’s a lot of walking going on. And, well, let’s be honest, the tasty notes of a Pokeball Fruit Punch would be SOOOOO nice when cruising around my neighborhood stalking my local reappearing-disappearing Snorlax…
Well, ok. We can admit that the Pokeball Fruit Punch may not be the MOST hydrating drink, since, you know, it’s not water–which is the best ever hydrator. But the coconut water and guava juice work to offset that and give you some highly-desirable electrolytes (read: yummy stuff in the drink) that help keep you going. And I want to go. A lot.
And it’s hot here in Texas. We’ve entered the second wave of heat and…well, let’s just say that it feels like Charmander is breathing heavy down my spine when I’m out trying to hatch eggs. Heh.
