Prohibit access to Pokémon GO players in Japan area

Players have affected the insect population in the Tottori Dunes

Although Pokémon GO has been an experience that has been liked by millions of players worldwide, the truth is that the design of the title and its use of augmented reality are sometimes limited by real-life situations. On this occasion, the community of users of the title in Japan has caused the prohibition of access to a specific area because they have affected the population of an insect species.

According to a report by The Asahi Shimbun, the Japanese authorities have taken the decision to ban access to Pokémon GO players , and virtually anyone, to the Tottori Dune pond, located in the city of the same name, due to that the increase in the number of visitors caused by the popularity of the game has put at risk a kind of insect. The report states that the access ban covers an area of 3,500 square meters around the pond and will remain for a year and a half until the population of the insect can recover.

The problem arose, according to the Japanese authorities, since Pokémon GO became a popular experience since many players visited the dunes and their pond in search of some Pokémon and in their step crushed the insects. Obviously, the increase in the number of visitors and their passage through the site over 2 years caused damage to the insect population that, fortunately, can be solved.
