It’s fair to say that Pokemon Go has taken the world by storm. Whenever it releases in a new region, it spreads like wildfire. Parks, malls, and other public spaces have suddenly become packed to the fences and walls with trainers. But with so many of us focused on the task of catching them all and being the very best, accidents are bound the happen. Reports are already flooding in about various injuries and other mishaps aided by the app. From broken bones to robberies, is Pokemon GO worth the trouble? Or has it already led to situations of outright violence?
Honestly, you have to take these reports with a grain of salt and a sense of humor. There are hundreds of millions of accounts active on Pokemon GO. And true, there may be some incidents that wouldn’t have occurred without the game. But can’t that be said about anything? You can’t choke if you don’t eat food. You can’t have a wreck if you don’t drive. I have personally witnessed acts of kindness, bonding, charity, and friendship directly related to Pokemon GO. It’s exciting and fun. Statistically, the worst thing you’ll encounter is an unresponsive server. So go out there, have a good time, and catch some Pokemon. Keep your wits about you, and you’ll do just fine. Because in the end, there’s absolutely nothing to worry about.
