What is Pokémon Go?
Different types of ‘wild’ Pokémon will appear and users travel around the real world catching them. On Level 5 players can unleash their Pokémon on ‘gyms’ normally located at real-life local places of interest – to do battle with other people’s Pokémon.
Is there an age limit for players?
Concerns for parents
- The general lack of awareness players have for the world around them can lead to accidents.
- You need a Google account to play the game.
- A malicious version of the Android app gives attackers full control over the victim’s phone.
- Once your child starts playing, they probably won’t want to stop. Parents who have concerns over screen time beware!
