After Iran, Pokemon Go prohibited in China.
Pokemon Go, which spreads like an epidemic even when it comes out as a beta and occupies news headlines for a while, is not as popular as the first days. However, the well-known mobile game is still able to launch news titles from time to time.
Pokemon Go is now on the verge of being banned in China. In China, where almost everything is strictly controlled and censored by the state, Pokemon Go has never officially been on the market. After that, the state will not go out because the state officially forbade this game.
Behind the prohibition of China’s game lies the known causes. First of all, it is emphasized that there is a possibility of causing an accident because of pushing the players to carelessness. As a matter of fact, in many countries, the Pokemon Go players had never been accidents. There were even those who were being usurped while looking at the screen.
But the main reason behind the ban is that the game uses regional positional information and camera images. The Chinese state suspects it could be used for espionage. In the past year, Iran has put into effect the Pokemon Go ban with similar suspicions.
