There have been several disturbing stories connected to the popular game.

In Wyoming, a woman found a dead figure floating in a sea. Then, in San Francisco, a brother and sister had their phones stolen while playing the game. Similar crimes have been reported elsewhere.
Ankle injuries, mishaps with revolving doors and walking into trees have also been reported. In Long Island, Fresh York, for example, a graduate student injured himself falling off a skateboard and a Maine woman reported twisting her ankle because she was dissipated.
And then there are the embarrassing incidents like the players in Pennsylvania who found themselves locked in a cemetery after closing.
