If there is one thing that has caught up A LOT in the past week, it is Pokémon Go. Not only is it a revival of old Pokémon memories, is also packs some unique Augmented Reality (AR) features. This Ingress style game has captivated millions, making it the #1 free app on both AppStore and Google Play in the few countries it is available in. In fact, new reports suggest that Pokémon Go, within a week of its release, has more active users than Tinder!
But the game hasn’t been all fancy for some players. From finding dead bodies to surviving road accidents, players of Pokémon Go have faced it all - and this is just the beginning.
From a collection of different sources, I’ve quoted some seriously scary (or hilarious) incidents that have occurred to the players.
And the list goes on!
But no, this won’t discourage Pokémon Go players, and it shouldn’t. As long as you are aware of your surroundings, as Niantic (the creator of the game) says, you are safe. The intention of the game is to get people moving, allowing them to explore the world and find new friends - all while trying to catch ‘em all. By all means, this game is a tremendous success.
