Pokémon Go

This is a huge craze at the moment. What are your thoughts about it? Is it safe? How has it changed gaming? What other game will follow the same mix of real life and computing? Is augmented reality the future?

Here is a link to a Newsround report all about the new game:

      1. Well in order to play it you have to walk around with your phone out which is dangerous because someone might try and steal it. This doesn’t stop me from loving it though.

          1. Don’t walk around with out an adult or someone that can protect you and don’t go waving your phone around in front of everyone.

      1. Well this is the 20th year since Pokémon came out with their first games for the Game-boy and since then they have been trying to make Pokémon become part of our world and this is the closest they have ever got. It feels like you are a Pokémon trainer out in the real world trying to be the very best like no-one ever was .

  1. I think that Pokémon Go is not that safe. Although lots of people play it, some people have got hurt by playing it.

  2. I think that this new app is not safe because it asks you when your date of birth is. You do not know who could be where it tells you to go.

  3. Pokémon go can be a dangerous game. People have been walking into roads, walking into lamp posts and more. Yet it can also be extremely fun. It gets people outside and lets them have so much fun at the same time.

  4. Think it really good because it makes people get out of the house when some people would not normally get out of the house. My mum think it’s good because it get me out of the house.

  5. This game is amazing , I own it along with approximately half the world [including news reporter] I have over 30 Pokémon

  6. This Pokémon Go game can be extremely dangerous towards children and many others. The reasons are very unpleasant so I will not say them.

  7. Pokémon Go can be dangerous. Some YouTube videos have shown people playing whilst driving, either starting traffic or crashing.

    1. I agree. I’ve seen a YouTuber get pulled over by the police because he was driving too slow. He was playing Pokémon Go whilst driving therefore he drove slow to make sure he didn’t die in a car crash. Pokémon Go is definitely dangerous.

      1. I do agree Rhys but if you are with and adult or even just at home (because you can find them at home) it might make it more safe!

  8. I think it is a fabulous game! It influences people to exercise whilst they play an exciting game! This game is an awesome invention!

    1. I agree. It’s one of the first games that gets people active instead of staying at home playing video-games.

  9. I love this game! It is so fun because although it is a game on a phone/tablet you are out of the house and you are exploring! Pokémon Go is really fun however as Tomas said above it could be dangerous but as long as people stay safe it is amazing.
