Pokemon Go Devs So Sorry For Late Japan Release


An apology has surprisingly been issued from the creators of the now globally renowned Pokemon Go due to the game’s rather late arrival to Japan, an apology that likely would not have happened for a game of any lesser popularity or revenue potential.

The “apology” video:

The video also handily reminds players to be aware of their surroundings while playing, a sentiment that even the Japanese government has found important enough to share, as indicated by this informational poster published before the game’s arrival:


The nine major points that the poster warns players about:

1. Always protect your personal information

2. Watch out for fake apps and cheat tools

3. Download a weather app so not to be caught out by bad weather

4. Be careful of heat stroke

5. Carry around a reserve battery pack

6. Be prepared with options to contact family members

7. Do not enter dangerous areas

8. Refrain from meeting strangers who ask to meet up

9. Don’t walk and use your phone

    Was...Was it really such a good idea to release the game in other places if you're already having server problems as it is? Do they have separate servers for other regions?

    Yes, you would need to use servers closest to the end users.

    The true problem here is how much Pokeshit is getting featured on sankaku, i know everyone's riding the Pokemon Go dicksucking train but just because everyone's doing it doesn't mean it's not bad, the smartphone game is very shallow even in comparison to the very first game and it's pretty much irrelevant at this point. they're around 20 years in development and now pokemon have only 2 moves and evolve by eating candy.

    Something like Pokemon Go is too early for human society. Come back in a few thousand years when people have stopped being fucking assholes.

    I am legitimately trying to understand if this game is merely tugging at the nostalgia strings or not. I've seen what little gameplay it has, which is to say none really. Are people that fascinated by the connection of the real life map to pokemon showing up? I have friends who have camped out overnight in parks for this already. Alone. Not with other friends, but other people doing the same but not really conversing with one another.

    The social element may need to be ironed out I guess, but I'm struggling to understand the appeal that made it grow so much beyond that some people may not have understood this technology existed and are completely entranced by this 'advancement' in what games provide in collusion with one of their favorite fantasy worlds.

    I'm wondering if it's simply that RPGs have given me that expansive feeling for a long time so it's not something I am lacking in games I play, but obviously it's not that simple or that alone.

    The poster actually says just to be careful of people trying to meet up with you, and that you should bring an adult if you really need to meet up with someone. Also that you should avoid places without any other people around, because it's possible you'll encounter a different kind of monster (actually what it says).

    The little cartoon in that panel has a guy with a mask saying, "I'll give you something cool, so let's meet up just the two of us"

    Most of their Gyms at landmarks have already been taken over by foreign players with location spoofing.

    That warning list is taking people for idiots.
    Or maybe they they already are hence the need to warn them?

    It's more like 10%, but it's enough to make a scene on media.

    Can't blame the people though after being taken for a bunch of morons since birth they just started to emulate what they kept being depicted as by the medias and governments all over the world.

    That warning list reflect the reality that idiots playing pokemon go fail at. Every single point on that list has MANY examples that showed up in the news since it first came out.

    The game was first released in the US, so it's not surprising that the warning looks like it's taking people for idiots.

    That, and people ARE idiots (not just Americans).

    Obviously what they mean with "Don’t walk and use your phone" is to stop walking when using your phone and vice-versa.

    9. Don’t walk and use your phone

    Using a GPS based app without moving. Not PokeGO, it basically breaks the purposed design of even GMaps. Utterly clever.
    Would be much better to change it to "Mantain awareness of your surroundings when watching your phone's screen" or something similar.
    And I would add another one plenty of people don't even think about : "Ask for permission before entering private property of areas with restricted areas. Entry forbidden areas are off limits for a reason, don't even bother asking."

    Less of an issue in Japan. Though here in the Southern US.... yea be careful about private property trespass.

    This is how the game is played, you can't catch shit if you don't walk and use it! Stupid Japs
