I think pokemon go shouldn't be banned. People who are getting hurt are just stupid and should be paying more attention in the first place

I would disagree here. I think this is crossing a line over into the region where we are restricting a person's freedom. Pokemon go is a game. if we start banning people from playing certain things, what is to stop us from banning listening to certain things, or reading certain things or saying certain things. Where is the freedom that our country so frequently boats of?
what's more, it has managed to do a task no amount of government funded programmes has succeeded at - getting young people outside and moving about! In a time where obesity is not just a risk, but a cause of death, this should be encouraged. Yes, bad things have happened as a consequence of the game but surely we should work top make it safer instead of banning it?

Secondhand smoke kills more infants through SIDS a year than PokemonGo will ever cause.

If I wanted to go out and catch creatures i could just have a jar and some food for worms and insects.

Pokemon go is not murdering them, criminals are. and the age group in question is old enough to know to be aware of their surroundings and watch their valuables.

this is like blaming apple for the Apple picking epidemic which involves theft (sometimes violently) of the new, expensive, and limited availability iphones. maybe we should have banned iphones?

And the pokemon go game is good for exercises but, robberies, theft, and murder are taking place of pokemon go. Police have already caught the murderers for the pokemon go murder, it's not about the age about murder.

Yes, but it has created a huge major of trouble.

Out of all the things that need government oversight pokemon go might be one. People are going to play this game at cemeterys and holocaust musems.

I know they have full power but how can you prove that they knew that their precious kid would die will playing this game.


I agree that they could cut of the Internet, and if they would know I'd guarantee they'd cut it off. Let's come to the death part Nemiroff.

But it has caused deaths and its a major problem.

2 years, 10 months ago

no I did not get it. and no I would not agree. banning things is usually stupid and never works. especially a silly game.

parents have full power to take away phones, turn off Internet, or block certain apps.

and dalton. I support oversight of government and government regulation of companies. you and your fellow Republicans are the ones who make a habit of regulating people.

And I think Nemiroff agrees to this too...

Pokemon Go should be banned, it is causing major trouble let to the parents. Nowadays 18+ or lower kids go on the streets to play pokemon go.


This game has occurred many deaths to college students, I suppose it should be banned.

omg in gta too?

I was making a joke. Nemiroff would probably be the only one to get it. Anyways, pokemon go should not be banned. I don't like it much but remember in all video games there are trolls and weirdos who follow you.

2 years, 10 months ago

i didnt understand dalton what you saying about?

2 years, 10 months ago

As Nemiroff would say, government oversight is key.
