The Pokemon GO craze is on! Nintendo surprised the avid fans yesterday by announcing its availability in Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. However, a police station in Australia warns the players who want to catch ’em all.
The authorities in Northern Australia warn the players situated around Darwin Police Station. According to Engadget, Pokemon GO marks the station as one of its Poke Stops wherein players can buy items like Pokeballs.
However, the website notes that gamers need not walk inside the vicinity to actually purchase. Players can go ahead and avail the items a few feet away from the station.
But then, the Darwin police feel the need to warn the Pokemon hunters about crossing the street. They left a response via Facebook, in which quotes as:
“For those budding Pokemon Trainers out there using Pokemon Go – whilst the Darwin Police Station may feature as a Pokestop, please be advised that you don’t actually have to step inside in order to gain the pokeballs.”
“It’s also a good idea to look up, away from your phone and both ways before crossing the street. That Sandshrew isn’t going anywhere fast. Stay safe and catch ’em all!”
On the other hand, Tech Crunch wants to impart some lessons and realizations while playing the exciting augmented reality game. One of the funny observations is the Pokemon Professor’s shoes.
According to the tech website, the professor is a real suave, but his shoes are “terrible.” The website also found out that players must walk at least more than a kilometer so a Pokemon egg would hatch.
More than that, the tech outlet also pointed out buying Pokemon coins with real cash. Furthermore, the gamers may want to put a headset on while catching Pokemon within the premises.
Also, players may encounter and catch Pokemon in unexpected places like a busy intersection and beside and empty dog bowl. Lastly, the game might drain the device’s battery.
Otherwise, Pokemon GO is indeed a fun and new way to enjoy a mobile game. Those who would want to experience to craze may download the game via iOS App Store and Android’s Google Play. Nintendo will announce the worldwide release soon.
