It’s hard to imagine what the government really thinks of Pokémon Go and there’s little indication the app is actually an organized plot to turn users into surveillance drones, ready-to-be-deployed as a zombie swarm.
Even the location profile from the app seems rather useless, given that people are exploring areas and walkways that they would otherwise ignore. If the app is directing the user, how much does the data really tell us about the user? Not much.
Seriously though. Just go outside and try it out. I've seen people all around the country playing this game and a lot of friends going out on field trips. It's definitely stimulated a different kind of gaming.
