10 Awesome Reasons Why Marriage Is Like Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go is the hottest craze right now around the world.

After a few hours of the release of Pokemon Go, social media went haywire and all you see from your Facebook newsfeed is about kids and adults playing this crazy game. We, too, installed the app and saw how easy it was to play the game and how everything looked so real because of Augmented Reality technology.

We could not help but notice while playing the game, the funny and seriously astounding similarities of Pokemon Go with Marriage. So we want to share with you our observations and tell us what you think about it.


Here are the Top 10 Similarities of Marriage & Pokemon Go:

#10 You think your First Pokemon is your best catch.

At one point in our life, we thought our first love will be our last. Some of us are lucky, while the rest of us, it’s a different story.

#9 Like Pokemon Go, you will definitely encounter obstacles.

Obstacles are part of life. They will either make you stronger or they may also discourage you. One thing is for sure, every obstacle in life gives us the experience which makes us wiser and better than before.

Pokemon Go, Marriage

#8 You need to invest to make your marriage stronger.

Just like Pokemon Go, you need to invest a lot of time, do some heavy work and sometimes (most of the time) spend a lot. You can’t expect your marriage to grow without doing anything or just by sitting around.

#7 You wouldn’t know if he’s a good catch if you didn’t get to know your Pokemon very well.

Beforehand, you have to set your negotiables and non negotiables before choosing a partner. Your marriage will most probably work out if you both knew your strengths and weaknesses and use it to your advantage. Imagine playing a game without knowing what the rules are and what you can or cannot do, you’ll end up losing always.

#6 A great catch is hard to find.

Sometimes, you have to climb the highest mountains, swim across the ocean and walk through the desert just to get a rare Pokemon. Chances are, if you did all those things in real life, I’m sure you would still have a hard time getting that great catch. Let’s admit it, finding a great partner is hard to find.

#5 Communities will help make your marriage level-up.

If you’re new to the game, there are experienced people who will give out some tips to help you succeed in the game. Same with marriage, there are communities/groups that will help you and equip you with knowledge and valuable “marriage hacks”. If you’re still just preparing for your wedding, a wedding community will give you valuable “wedding hacks”  to help you avoid failures and disappointments on your big day.

#4 You will experience Wins or Losses, but you must never give up.

Winning or Losing is part of the game. It will always be part of life. These are the spices that makes married life more colorful and interesting. Besides,  you will never truly appreciate the joy of winning when you have not even experienced losing.

#3 Comparing our Pokemon with others, makes us either vain or bitter.

Comparing does not help you nor your marriage. There will always be better and weaker Pokemons than yours.  Just learn to focus on what you have, improve on your strengths, and work on your weaknesses.

#2 We hate cheaters.

No need to explain further. Cheaters ruin the game for everyone!

#1 The Perfect Husband/Wife is like a Pokemon, it doesn’t exist.

Are you still wishing you had the perfect husband/wife? Don’t! They do not exist. No marriages are perfect either. You can only strive for progress but not perfection.

  • The thing is, I continue to believe that the pinnacle of a perfect marriage is the union of two imperfect people. So there, I have said it. It takes two to tango and if one is not willing, able, then the marriage is bound not to be a happy one.


  • Haha, what a fun post to read. I would have never thought of comparing marriage with Pokemon. The truth is, I don’t really play the game so I don’t know about half of the stuff in this list, but I do recognise the statements as valid in a marriage communion. it is true that we can never find the perfect “Pokemon”, but with love and understanding, we can make it our own special one.

    This is such a great post. This is also applicable not only to marriage but also those who are in a committed relationship. This should trend it’s way too awesome. I love this the best. “You will experience wins or losses, but never give up.” Shared this post to my significant other. – Me-An Clemente

    hahahhaah! this is so much true. aside from marriage life it can also be connected to some daily activities or relationship with friends and family. It made me laugh and nod while reading this. So timely as well since a lot are into POKEMON

  • Carola

    Haha the title already made me laugh. Made me curious to read! I have to admit I know little of both, lol. But I enjoyed reading your comparison. It’s very funny!

  • I’m not married, but this was pretty funny. I guess marriage and Pokemon Go are pretty similar to me because I don’t know much about either. But people get pretty obsessed with talking about both marriage and Pokemon Go. So I guess that’s something else they have in common.

  • Wow! I never thought of looking at Pokemon Go this way. This is a great analogy. But I actually remember our Ingress walkathon days, haha! When I got to the Pokemon Gym in the Parish, I told Ralph, it was either yours or Ana’s portal. LOL!

  • Milton Coyne

    haha that’s a great and unexpected analogical comparison haha but I enjoyed it and they are all on point.. I am not yet married nor in a relationship right now but I’m sure I can apply these to myself someday haha
    thanks for sharing, it’s really fun to read

  • I love the insights on this! <3 I do believe there will never be a perfect marriage nor a perfect person to marry for we are all sinners and are flawed to begin with. Only the presence of Christ in the lives of the woman and man, and the presence of God in their marriage will make the union perfect — this is only possible under the grace of God. 🙂

    P.S. I so love your website! <3 As a soon-to-be bride, the ideas and guidelines here are very much appreciated. :')

    Very brainy! Love the post, though I don’t play pokemon hahaha. This is still very nice insight. Love the number 1 on the list – nobody’s perfect 🙂

  • Fiona Simmonds

    Haha! This is an excellent post – true and yet so funny! I especially like your point that we shouldn’t compare ourselves to others but should instead concentrate on improving ourselves. Likewise, I believe we should not judge others but should accept them as they are and focus on their strengths. Trying to use a Pokémon example, it is easy to be disappointed in a common Pokémon but at the very least it can provide candy and stardust!!
