Why Some People Hate 'Pokemon Go': The Good And Bad Sides Of The Game

Despite the success of Pokemon Go, it still has failed to please everyone just like any other game would do. One of the proofs that this Pokemon Go hating campaign is prevalent in our world today is a photo that shows a sign that warning Pokemon Go players not to trespass within the place.

It even compares the game to be really stupid as the trickle down economic thoughts and the Hammer pants crazy trend of the 1990s. It is also because of the Pokemon destinations which are found inside private properties, which usually results in trespassing and even injuries.

Of course, if you are on a search for fictional animated monsters inside the city, you must watch every step that you make and not focus entirely on your phones. However, there is also some degree of positivity that surrounds this unpopularity of the game for some people.

Pokemon Go is a game that motivates people to get out of the house and take a walk, which is also a form of exercise.

Now, children who were once inside their rooms playing video games on their consoles or in desktops are out of their dungeons and mingling with the outside world. The adults who are locked in their offices now spend their time off the work outside the city and experiencing the world.

Angela Fong, physical activity researcher and Ph.D. candidate in exercise sciences at the University of Toronto says, "The Pokemon are kind of placed all over the city. In order to get the good ones or get a lot of them, you need to get off your butt and walk outside."

She also states that players need to be ingenious if they want to hatch the eggs, making people think and not just play. She is an avid Pokemon Go player and she says that the game inspires her to walk and exercise, even reaching a total distance of seven kilometers without noticing it.

She adds, "It makes people forget that they're actually getting physical activity."

The game has indeed proven to be a true success as sixty percent of all American millennials that were surveyed are found to have an increase in activity levels, which is a very healthy thing. Despite all of the benefits that Pokemon Go has, it is still surrounded by a lot of haters.
