Pokémon Go has brought lots of good things to the world of mobile gaming, bringing real life trainers together like no Pokémon product ever could, but along with the good there is always the bad.
In St. Louis, Missouri, robbers set up a beacon at a PokéStop then proceeded to rob any players who responded to the signal at gunpoint, effectively using Pokémon Go to bring victims their way.
In Wyoming a 19-year-old girl stumbled upon a dead body while playing Pokémon Go near the Highway 789 Bridge, leaving her with some new memory scars but zero water type Pokémon.
“I probably would have never went down there if it weren’t for [Pokémon Go],” 19-year-old Shayla Wiggins said. “But in a way, I’m thankful. I feel like I helped find his body. He could have been there for days.”
And staff at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington D.C. are asking players to be respectful and stay out of the building while hunting Pokémon, because duh.
But what's worse- someone reportedly caught the poisonous gas type Pokémon called Koffing inside the museum, although the image has since been removed from Imgur.

So go, catch 'em all and meet your fellow trainers in the wild, but be safe, stay aware and make sure you don't get caught in a Team Rocket style trap!
