pokemon go

A New Hampshire day care center has been removed from "Pokemon Go" after complaining to game's developers about strangers lurking around the property.

 

Police in New Hampshire's largest city have gotten the Pokemon Go bug, trying to lure fugitives with the popular app.

A post on the Manchester Police Department Facebook page announces that police recently detected one of the more rare Pokemon characters — a Charizard — in the booking area. The post invites those whose names appear on a list linked to the post to be "one of the lucky ones" to come capture the Charizard.

The list includes the names of the more than 500 fugitives on the department's wanted persons roundup.

The smartphone game Pokémon Go has quickly become one of the most-used apps in the country. Now a political advocacy group in New Hampshire is hoping to coopt some of that enthusiasm.
