“Pokemon Go can be played in many places, but not at military facilities, that’s a fact. And in schools, of course, also not, this should be avoided. They do not go to classes to chase Pokemon,” Le Fol said on briefing, answering journalists’ questions.
He noted that Pokemon Go often creates problems, so local authorities are forced to prohibit the game in certain places that may pose a threat. “It is clear that you need to avoid people running around everywhere, buried in their phones, and not looking where they are going – they can fall somewhere or something else,” Le Fol said.

Pokemon Go is declining in popularity, analysts say
Since the beginning of August, not only the number of players who use the application on a daily basis has decreased, but also the percentage of engagement in interaction with the game, analysts say.
At the same time, a government spokesman categorically rejected the possibility of a law restricting this and similar electronic games. “Well no! Stop, we will not pass laws on Pokemon Go,” he said.
On the eve of the weekly publication Canard Enchaine reported that the French army intends to defend against the invasion of Pokemon Go and ban it among the military, since many of the facilities of the Ministry of Defense, among which there are ZDHS, there are virtual objects and creatures associated with the game. The department fears that under the guise of players, attackers may try to enter military facilities, and that this application will become popular among the military.
