Thanks to nostalgia for the '90s Nintendo game, excitement over its mass introduction to augmented reality and a summertime launch amid a time when players could use a distraction from the current news cycle, it only took one weekend of playing for the Nintendo-owned game to become an overnight sensation - even boosting its stock.
However, there's a new interesting discovery made by two Reddit users that might have revealed an upcoming partnership between Pokemon Go and McDonald's.
Many users are trying all kinds of tricks to download the app as it is not yet available in all countries worldwide.
While they have released patches for both iOS and Android users, many players are unaware that they need to manually revoke the game's "Full Access" status before they can reset the app's permissions to "Basic" (wherin they can only access your name and email address).
Reports on how long bans last have varied from minutes to several hours, but an hour seems to be most common.
Kurzius explained that while her iPhone did not have enough storage space to download the app, she played it on a friend's Android, citing data security concerns. If you're sick of hearing about the cute characters, install the PokeGone extension for Chrome, and remove all traces of Pokemon from your browser. A petition has been set up to let players suggest new locations for Pokestops and Gyms to combat the problem.
