Pokemon Go, despite its recent drama, is still one of the most popular game for Android and iOS devices today.
In this article, I will talk about some big Pokemon Go News over the weekend. Let’s start first with the banning of the game in the country of Iran.
The Iranian Government bans the game in their country due to security reasons. The country, as is, is already one of the most hostile environments in the world. Given how this game is played, it is really a security concern for most of its citizens.
Apparently, the Iranian government even contacted Niantic about certain tweaks that should be made in the game to help with the concern but nothing happened from that.
Iran is probably the first ever country to ban the popular game in their premise. Although that seems to be the case, there are already a lot of countries are taking precaution when playing the game.
Indonesia, another Asian country, bars their Policemen from playing the game, especially when they are on duty.
There are also several countries where their officials urged the public to play the game safely by providing some general safety guidelines.
Although the game provides fun for its players, always make it a point to play the game following the safety guidelines.
Some of these important guidelines include always looking at your surroundings, do not play the game while driving, focusing on work rather than playing the game, and spending quality time with your family (without playing the game).
In other news, there is a recent surge in the sales of Battery packs, mainly because of the game.
Pokemon Go’s positive impact on the economy is apparent lately because there were a lot of battery packs being sold out in various retailers; online or otherwise.
This is certainly the case for most people. You see, although the game is great, the game itself uses so much battery life. On top of that, the game will also require mobile data and your GPS feature turned on as well, adding more and more elements that help drain your phone’s battery even faster.
That is why a lot of retailers have their battery packs sold out over the weekend. If you are looking for a battery pack for the game, then you may have a hard time getting one, at least, for now.
Lastly, Pokemon Go has been released in other parts of the globe including Brazil and the Philippines. The game has been officially released in these countries and a lot of people are now enjoying the game.
Again, please do follow safety guidelines laid out by your government to ensure that you not only play the game but you can enjoy it safely as well.
Also, if there are battery packs available in your area, be sure to grab one now because it will surely be sold out in just a few days.
Pokemon Go is a game developed by Niantic Studios and published by Nintendo.
