So Pokemon doesn't go after all.
At least not for now in China, which is considering whether to allow the popular game to play out on phones there. Government officials are concerned about reports that Pokemon Go players are wandering around looking for Pokemon characters and carelessly causing accidents. In nearby Japan, two people were killed in car accidents last year because gamers were distracted.
In China, the government is also concerned about security problems with the app's geolocation services. When using the Pokemon Go app to navigate through a virtual world, players broadcast their locations in the real world.
The State Administration of Press, Publication, Radio, Film and Television, the government censor, said it bore "a high level of responsibility to national security and the safety of people's lives and property."
