Amazing / Weird Facts About Pokemon Go
« on: July 16, 2016, 05:44:45 PM »


Pokemon Go was released earlier this month and the game already has more active users than Twitter.


Pokémon Go took over the planet this past weekend and inspired millions of people to get out and be active (while still staring at their mobile phone screens).


One reason why i love this game is that it's getting people to go outside, interact with their surroundings and other same-minded individuals. So go ahead! Get your "Pokémon Go" on. Just make sure you keep these creepy happenings in the back of your mind while you're at it ... they might just come in handy somehow.

Below are some weird * that has happened to Pokémon Go gammers worldwide

A TEENAGER DISCOVERED A d*ad BODY.

On July 8, A 19-year-old girl (Shayla Wiggins) in Wyoming got way more than she bargained for when she was searching for wild Pokemon and found a d*ad body instead
Wiggins discovered what turned out to be a body floating in the water and called 911. Wiggins told Kotaku that because she quit playing to dial 911, she never did find the Pokémon she was looking for.

PEOPLE USE THE GAME TO PLAN ROBBERIES
Pokémon Go encourages people to meet in designated areas with other players so that they can catch wild Pokémon together.
"Using the geolocation feature of the Pokemon Go app, the robbers were able to anticipate the location and level of seclusion of unwitting victims." Four suspects were arrested on Sunday in connection with the crimes and charged with first-degree robbery and armed criminal action.

A Teenage Girl Was Struck By a Car While Tracking a Pokemon
This happened in Pennsylvania a mother named Tracy Nolan is on a mission to educated other Parents on safety measures of the game.
Nolan's 15-year-old daughter, Autumn, was hit by a car just after pinpointing a Pokemon near a busy highway. The teen required hospitalization after suffering a collarbone injury, a foot injury, and a bevy of bruises and cuts. Note to players: Do not track Pokemon on busy roads. Don't do it while you're driving. Don't do it near a highway. Just keep it far, far away from anywhere cars might be.

THE GAME IS FREE, BUT STILL MAKES TONS OF MONEY FOR NINTENDO.


Pokémon Go is actually free to download, but the app is already paying off for Nintendo. According to Forbes, the company’s stock price began to climb in the days following the game’s launch, and it climbed another 25 percent on July 11, adding $7 billion to the company's market value.

Two Players Fell Off a Cliff During the Game
This might sound funny, but it's not if you are the one actually playing this game.

Two men in Encinitas, California suffered moderate injures when they fell off a cliff while playing "Pokemon Go." The men, who had disregarded warning signs posted in the area, admitted to taking the tumble due to the augmented reality game. One fell about 50 feet and his friend fell 80 to 90 feet, requiring assistance from the local fire department for rescue. They're both being treated at the Scripps La Jolla Trauma Center.
