Safety First Before Your Kids "Pokemon Go" Out Into the World!

After a recent stampede in Taiwan, "Pokémon Go" continues to come under attack for its style of gameplay, namely putting users at risk for danger as they move about town to various Pokéstops. As you battle, trap and capture, it is important to keep in mind that you still exist in the real world! These tips are important for both for parents and players:

  • Be alert at all times.
  • Stay aware of your surroundings.
  • Play in pairs or a group to ensure your safety.
  • Do not drive or ride a bike, skateboard or engage in any other mobility device while interacting with "Pokémon Go." One cannot possibly do both safely.
  • Do not trespass onto private property.
