There is nothing dangerous about Pokemon go. There have been some people who have done some foolish things, but people do foolish things in all sorts of ways. If they werent being foolish with Pokemon go, they’d be foolish elsewhere. Some people find it enjoyable and actually its healthier because it makes you walk and get exercise (I do have issues with the game making shuls, yeshivas, etc pokestops or Pokemon Gyms, but that is another issue) and others think its stupid. Do what you find enjoyable.
There was a report recently about people getting killed because they were taking dangerous selfies on such things as a side of a cliff. There is nothing dangerous about selfies, however it is foolish to take one on the side of a cliffJuly 18, 2016 12:08 pm at 12:08 pm #1161171

Many times Rabbeim give mussor shmoozes to an audience that they know well and they say things to an audience that they know well. When someone repeats these schmoozes to a different audience they dont translate very well and it backfires .
I dont remmeber all the details, but a big Rav went to a Shiva call of a man who buried his son and said something like how priviledged he was to have had this son for whatever time it was and the father was comforted. Someone nearby heard this and later when to a shiva call under similar circumstances where a man was sitting shiva for his son. Not only was the man not comforted, he made this situation alot worse and people nearby tried to get the man to stop with his “menachem Aveil” and he refused saying he was repeating the Rebbes words.
Just because you heard a schmooze from a Great Rebbe in one situation, doesnt mean you should repeat it in another, It might not translate well and might make things worseJuly 18, 2016 2:54 pm at 2:54 pm #1161174charliehallParticipant

Pokemon Go is an embarrassment to the human race.
Grown adults run to catch imaginary monsters, like a dog running to catch a bone. The dog at least, gets to chew the bone and enjoy its taste, while pokemon go players are left with what, an imaginary monster to add to their collection?July 22, 2016 3:38 am at 3:38 am #1161187ðRebYidd23Participant

No RebYidd people are crazy and sadly the real world will not distract them, they closet themselves in a tech blanket and use this alternate “reality” to live their “lives”.July 22, 2016 1:13 pm at 1:13 pm #1161189
People are not crazy, they are bored with their realilty, this is why they play these fantasy type “online interactive” games. It creates a false new exciting lives for them.
Now, if putting Pokemon in the beis medrash is a way to get someone who otherwise wont go there into it, then I say we capitalize on it and when these poor people come in, invite them for a cup of coffee and tell them a shtickel torah, you never know what can come from it.July 22, 2016 1:20 pm at 1:20 pm #1161190BarryLS1Participant
Mashiach Agent: Absolutely on target. Did you hear of the guy driving in Baltimore while playing Pokemon and plowing into a parked police car or the people walking off a cliff?
A friend told me that he loves the game because it gets his kids off the couch and walking the streets learning their environment. Sounds good, but people are focused on their phones and not looking where they are going.
Also, BMG allows the “treif” smartphones?July 22, 2016 4:49 pm at 4:49 pm #1161191

It’s a motivation to get out and walk

We had some in the Boston Kollel. There were hoards of college students trying to find it outside, but one of the mesifta boys found out that it was actually inside.
With all the tznius issues (college girls, summer) it causes in front of the shul, the community should really take a stand against it with some big posters.July 25, 2016 12:07 pm at 12:07 pm #1161195
It wanted to learn Torah,
But seriously, you don’t need to be where it is, just as long as it is in the general vicinity
Btw, you mean rabbi beir’s Kollel?July 25, 2016 1:40 pm at 1:40 pm #1161196
The boys must have been playing it last summer (the game that its based off of). Yes please make sure the pritzius stays out.July 25, 2016 3:29 pm at 3:29 pm #1161197
“i think this game was made to get people to have an exercise instead of stay inside all day playing games.”
It was made so that nintendo revenues will rise. when the game stops producing revenue (when people get sick of it), they will stop development on the game and focus on their next money making project.July 26, 2016 3:42 am at 3:42 am #1161198ptchaMember

Honestly as far as apps go Pokemon Go is a very safe and innocent app. There are many incentives to walk around and explore the area you live in. There are ways to get Pokemon by walking and running around. It helps get kids out of the house and doing something a more productive then just sitting in the house playing video games. There has already been noticeable positive effects on some people with depression that play the game.
I do understand that it can be a annoying having Pokestops in some areas, but on the whole this is probably one of the better apps and if you really want to pick a bone with certain apps, there are many more which are much much worse.July 28, 2016 2:04 pm at 2:04 pm #1161209
YWNPoster. You are correct. Nintendo did not create the game. A company named Niantic created the game under license from Nintendo who owns the Pokemon brand. Nintendo is also a part owner of Niantic which thanks to PokemonGo is now worth in excess of 3 billion dollars.July 28, 2016 2:39 pm at 2:39 pm #1161210
There was no way to do that on a gameboy
