Pokémon ‘Go’ Has Real-Life Dangers You Should Definitely Know About.

Culture |

These days, everyone is all about Pokemon Go.

Maybe your neighbors have started to worry about you, after seeing you book it out of your front door in the middle of the night, simply to stand in your yard and point your phone at something that isn't really there. Then again, given the current trend of playing Pokemon Go, your neighbor might actually not be that worried -- in fact, he might be out there playing, too.

It's a hide and seek game for the new generation, hunting Pokemon in an altered reality smartphone game that involves GPS tracking and spotting the little buggers in real-life locations. However, there might be a reason to put down the Doduos and Charlizards and join the real world -- and it's not just because your boss is sick of you hunting for them in the break room. No, there might be a far more insidious reason to quit playing and protect your privacy. Learn more about this troubling possibility below.


It involves using your smartphone to hunt Pokemon in your neighborhood, and to say it's a craze would be an understatement.
