In case you don't know Pokemon is a popular RPG (role-playing game) in which you try to collect and battle little monsters called Pokemon. Pokemon Go makes your hometown the battleground. It’s a lot like GeoCaching.

Here's what could lead to dangerous situations while playing the seemingly innocent game:

Missouri police say four men, between the ages of 16 and 18, used the game to rob people. "Using the geolocation feature, the robbers were able to anticipate the location and level of seclusion of unwitting victim. If you use this app (or other similar type apps) or have children that do we ask you to please use caution when alerting strangers of your future location.''

The game led a 19 year-old Riverton, Wyoming teen to the Wind River where she found a body floating in the water. The young woman tells County 10: “I was walking towards the bridge along the shore when I saw something in the water. I had to take a second look and I realized it was a body.”The body was floating a few feet from the shore of the Wind River. According to the detectives, the body had been resting in the same spot for around 24 hours.

Law enforcement officials in Washington are warning people not to play the game while driving. They tweeted: "No Pokemoning from behind the wheel''
