And also ask the young woman in the following video.

She starts out the self-filmed footage by explaining that she was initially really angry over Pokemon GO.


Because the app, which forces players to go into the real world in order to track down Pokemon (who appears to them on their phone screens at various locations), was causing upheaval at her workplace.

It’s unclear just where this woman works (Walmart?), but she makes it VERY clear in this video that there have been a number of disturbances there as a result of Pokemon GO.
