Not without cause – the hunt for Pokemon (or "pocket monsters") has resulted in some unexpected situations.The Japanese government has published a leaflet advising children of the potential risks of Pokemon Go – including the dangers of playing the game while cycling – despite the app not yet having been officially released in the country.Saudi Arabia has gone even further, with the country's main religious body reissuing a fatwa first announced in 2001 banning any game involving Pokemon.A much-shared Palestinian tweet shows a Pikachu emerging from the ruins of house in Gaza.While the game is only officially available in some 40 countries, many players have found ways to access the app before its release in their territory. Behind the phenomenon is the Pokemon Company but also its shareholder Nintendo, the Japanese group whose devices have been needed to play any earlier versions of digital Pokemon games.
