Pokemon GO has dominated the charts and for good reason. Being able to walk around and make new friends, catch some of your favourite Pokemon from the series and even do battle against players is just brilliant. But that has also come with it’s fair share of troubles. A recent incident for example has used one of the games functions as a way to prey on unsuspecting gamers.
Pokemon GO allows you to use Lures in order to attract more Pokemon to your location or to a nearby Poke Stop. However some individuals over in the states used this function to lure unsuspecting players of the game to certain Poke Stops in order to rob them of their expensive smart phones. Of course this is disgusting but it has raised more awareness for trainers exploring the world.
We for example are not here to tell you that you cannot have fun. In fact we encourage you to go out there and catch em all! But we do encourage you to heed safety. If there is a suspicious area nearby or a group of individuals at a Poke Stop that don’t seem too friendly, then maybe give it a miss if you are running solo. Stay safe, stay strong in numbers and remember to have fun responsibly. We don’t want to hear anyone dying over Pokemon GO.
We hope you are enjoying the mobile game and are staying safe. Have any fun stories you wish to share with us? Pop them down in the comments below and have a look at our guide and a look at what Pokemon GO does for you.
