Iran Just Made Pokémon Go Illegal

Let’s face it. Pokémon Go has absolutely no clue whether Dragonite is in the middle of a children’s play-park or the middle of a high security military establishment. Although the game warns not to trespass and to be aware of your surroundings, there will always be that one person who does something stupid to let us all down.

Now, to suggest you’d be able to catch military establishment Dragonite is absurd, but that was one, highly-exaggerated example (and who knows, maybe Jason Bourne plays Pokémon Go). In all seriousness, there are still tonnes of places you could trespass in, and as far as security’s concerned, that makes Pokémon Go a risk. Unfortunately.

Now, thankfully, this hasn’t really resulted in too many problems as of yet. Life goes on and Jason Bourne isn’t going to jump your backyard fence. That hasn’t stopped Iran from using it as an excuse to completely fucking obliterate Pokémon Go from their country, though.

Yeah, that’s right. Pokémon Go is now 100% illegal in Iran, as decided by The High Council of Virtual Spaces, who oversees any and all online interactions and activities within Iran’s borders. They’re the first to ban the immensely successful and popular augmented-reality game. Will others follow? Let’s hope not.
