“Pokémon GO” Startles Homeowners in Brazil

The Brazil Police Department is informing citizens of a new trend called “Pokémon GO”, a fitness app designed to get people moving around outside. Officers have received calls to residents reporting strangers gathering in backyards because of a Pokémon icon location. Brazil PD reminds citizens to off private properties, do not stand in the middle of roadways, and when playing this new game craze, stay vigilant of your surroundings. Though most use the game for physical activity, there have already been cases across the country of people being lured to locations to be robbed or taken advantage of, so always think Safety First, and don’t Pokémon and drive.
