Just within the first week of its launch, Pokémon GO has already become an online sensation. The location-based, augmented reality mobile game was one of the most downloaded smartphone apps upon its release and has become the most active mobile game ever in the United States with more than 22 million players. According to Independent, the game has been credited with improving the mental and physical health of players who are suffering from social anxiety and depression. However, there are few things about Pokémon GO that cannot be avoided if one intends to play this game for a long time.
1. If You Want To Avoid Accidents.
Ever since the launch of the game, there are reports that players forgot their surrounding and reportedly fell into potholes, twisted their ankles, and even walked into lampposts. Redditor Amalthea took to Reddit to explain how just 30 minutes after downloading the game, they had managed to slip and fall into a ditch and fractured one of the bones in their foot. Amalthea is expecting a full recovery in six to eight weeks.
