Hunter Shkolnik on Fox News About Pokemon Go

Hunter Shkolnik recently appeared on Fox News regarding a Michigan couple’s lawsuit, against Pokemon Go creators, claiming it’s ruining their quality of life. A park across the street from the couple’s house is a hot-spot for the popular game and they say the Pokemon Go players trample their shrubbery, peer in windows and curse at them. The lawsuit is also looking for a cut of the game maker’s profits.

The Niantic hit was initially released in selected countries in July 2016.  It is a free-to-play, location-based mobile reality game (for both iOS and Android). In the game, players use a mobile device’s GPS to locate, capture, battle and train virtual creatures (Pokemon) who appear on the screen as if they were in the same real world location as the player.

Many spaces, especially government properties, religious places,  and dangerous areas such as roads have requested to be off-limits.
