We’ve all been obsessed with Pokemon Go, and the game has brought some unique challenges to our everyday lives. Apart from the startlingly brief lives of our cell phone batteries while playing—and the startlingly high data bills we’ve all received—the total immersion demanded from Pokemon Go in order to be successful has also started introducing other unique societal and safety problems for the modern Pokemon trainer. From people stumbling across actual dead bodies, literally walking off cliffs, playing while driving, or playing in disrespectful locations like the Holocaust memorial museum (c’mon guys…), Pokemon Go is really transforming modern society.
Like anything, it’s just going to take some time for us to slip back into a normal rhythm of life with this game, so we won’t be dealing with socially unaware Pokemon trainers for the rest of eternity. Proof that we’re getting past that awkward phase of a new, immersive, revolutionary game like this is that we’re starting to see ways that you can use Pokemon Go to do good in the world. However, as we adapt to life with this game, it’s good to point out those places that aspiring trainers should avoid. Thankfully the team at Rooster Teeth has provided us with a helpful video highlighting several places you should definitely avoid catching ’em all like dark alleys, your own proposal, the shower, and in the middle of a bank robbery (although you probably shouldn’t be robbing banks to begin with, but you know, whatever).
The video is hilarious and right on the money. It’s even funnier because if we’re all honest, we’ve all got a story of a stupid place we’ve all played Pokemon Go–even though we all know better. So be careful out there, trainers. Get out there and hunt for Pokemon, but be safe!
