MOSCOW, July 18. /TASS/. Japan’s Nintendo, the owner of Pokemon Go game, is ready to accept complaints from users regarding placement of game virtual objects in unsuitable places of the real world, Nintendo PR Director in Russia Konstantin Govorun told TASS on Monday.
The so-called ‘pokestops’ are meant - special points on the Pokemon Go map where a player can replenish resources for the game and receive bonuses. The map gape coincides with the real world game and the system automatically seeds pokestops near the most prominent public areas - monuments, museums, etc. This may result in incorrect behavior of game funds near such facilities.
"If any player considers a pokestop is located incorrectly and should be deleted, he or she will be able to report this to technical support of Niantic studio. We will explain the procedure in greater detail after launching the game in Russia," Nintendo representative said.
Pokemon Go is an extensive multiplayer free-to-play online game with elements of augmented reality, developed by Niantic for IOS and Android devices. The game was released in July 2016. The game allows players to capture, train and fight with virtual Pokemon characters, which could be found in real world locations. The game is expected to be formally released in Russia in the coming days.
