Pokemon Go is probably the first mobile game in which its augmented reality is leading police to warn players about placing themselves in danger as they travel to unfamiliar and weird locations. Many of us at CNET are huge fans too, so a bunch of us wanted to start a chat with readers to talk about the game, favorite Pokemon caught so far, and any other interesting experiences you've had while playing.

Days after its release, Pokemon Go has become a fast-moving phenomenon, drawing flash mob-type crowds searching neighborhoods, parks and urban streets for imaginary characters on their smartphones.

"Thanks to Pokemon Go, I walked 16,000 steps today", tweeted Nina. In this game, one does exactly what you would expect; capture virtual Pokemon. And on the Google Play store, it's ranked No. 1 above Facebook, Snapchat and Instagram.

But things are getting out of hand in the island state, Senior Constable Ann Edge says.

Users play the game by wandering neighborhoods and other public places, trying to discover geo-located Pokemon characters, which show up as if in the real world on their smartphone cameras.

Secondly, the GPS tracking technology used by the Pokemon Go app to track the movement of the players across the Pokemon map within the game would interfere with the tracking systems up in space, which uses different frequencies than down in the earth. It is even surpassing Twitter in active daily users.

The game is officially available in a few countries, including the US, Australia and New Zealand. "We know you want to catch 'em all, but do so safely!"
