When people go to parks and help random other people find pokemon? If you went outside, to the park, and saw others play it. Some people will actually ask others questions, maybe even use the game as a crutch to start conversation and be friendly? Idk, the mind can wonder though.

I believe you already knew the answer to your question before you asked it.

There's a Pub Crawl and Pokemon group happening in San Francisco tonight @ 6pm, i think.
post #114 of 120
We were talking about Pokemon GO at home last night and came up with a question that stumped us.

Let's say someone is out looking for Pokemon and learns that there's one in someone's home or on their private property. Let's take it to an extreme were said Pokemon is in a well populated area and/or is highly desirable. In other words, either many people will be trespassing, tempted to break and enter, or just generally disturb the owner.

1. Is Nintendo (or whomever stands behind the app) responsible for this?
2. Is there a contact someone can use to have their property removed from possible Pokemon locations?

Our neighbors ended up in our front yard hunting one down apparently. They're wonderful people and no harm was done but I can see where under certain circumstances there could be trouble. Purely a question born from curiosity.

Wouldn't work like that as there is an extremely large radius at which you can catch Pokemon. Sometimes you can see a Pokemon up to a block away, if you tap it on your screen, you can catch it. Unless there's an extremely rare Pokemon in somebody's 4-acre mansion, I doubt anything would happen.

legally speaking, nintendo are not responsible for people trespassing or being damaged by trying to catch something. They have the big disclaimer which stats pretty much "enjoy the game but don't be a moron about it".
But, legally speaking, and only if the courts decide (it might have to be challenged in court), they might be liable in case they put lets say a rare catch in someone property and it causes people to surround their house, making them fearful of what is going on. Its a bit maybe. There has to be a precedence for it.

You can't have a company behave in an irresponsible manner, inviting people to go catch virtual creatures in the real world, placing them in what they should have known is private property but then waive all responsibility because their legal team put a disclaimer in there. It doesn't work like that.

That's like saying that it's perfectly normal for a car company to tell you that the driver's seat in your car comes with a spring loaded mechanism that might eject you at any time, so their legal advice is for you to attach a sofa to the roof and use some ropes and sticks and drive your car like Mr. Bean, and thus following that advice they are absolved from all guilt.

They have to take every sensible and reasonable measure to use the most up to date maps and update them constantly. If for example they are found to be using a 1+ year old map, a lot of stuff may have changed and in many cases has effectively changed and they are being at best negligent and will be held accountable.

the locations are randomly generated and honestly, the range that you're given where you're allowed to capture them is such that you can be ACROSS THE STREET and capture a pokemon. It's people using the AR thing and trying to get super close to them that are causing the most issue. Turn off AR and as soon as one pops up you can catch it without having to walk up near it.

Responsibility falls upon the players as to whether or not they're allowed onto properties, not Nintendo.

It is pretty obvious when something is private property. Nintendo is not telling you to trespass either, that would be peoples OCD kicking in. "Gotta catch that magicarp" and whatnot rather than just passing it up because its on private property.

I guess people shouldnt have nice things on their property either, its just tempting people to trespass.

The lack of self control is the most disturbing thing about this.
