Police department uses 'Pokemon Go' to nab most wanted

"Gotta catch 'em all" may be the tag line for Pokemon, but it also is a fitting motto for police, especially for the Manchester, New Hampshire, police department.

In reality, the lucky list was a list of the area's most wanted

Manchester police are not the only law enforcement group embracing the "Pokemon Go" craze that's sweeping the world. 

Police in Fountain Hill, Pennsylvania, put together a video inspired by the television show "Cops" of their quest to find a MewTwo, The Morning Call reported.

The video in all reality is a public service announcement to give tips to Pokemon collectors to play safely.

The Morning Call reported that the members of the police department who took part in the video may or may not be involved in the game off duty, but they are not allowed to play when they're on the clock.

Man claims to quit job to play 'Pokemon Go' full-time

A man from New Zealand apparently has done what some Pokemon players would love to: Tom Currie left his job to travel the country and catch virtual Pokemon characters.

Currie is on his way, trying to catch as many of the characters on the viral hit "Pokemon Go" app, Newshub reported.

Currie is 24 and will take the next two months trying to capture all of the Pokemon.

Just had an interview with The Guardian UK! www.theguardian.com/technology/2016/jul/15/pokemon-go-man-quits-job-to-become-full-time-pokemon-hunter #pokemon A photo posted by NZ Pokémon Trainer Tomblebee (@tomblebee) on Jul 14, 2016 at 9:04pm PDT

He's booked 20 bus trips around the country and has captured 90 of the 151 Pokemon released in in "Pokemon Go."

But how and why would Currie leave his job to embark on a game?

"I wanted to have an adventure. I have been working for six years and I was desperate for a break. And Pokemon gave me the chance to live that dream," Currie told The Guardian.

Currie is also getting support from all over the world, including transportation companies which are offering to take him to the more remote locations of New Zealand to search for rare Pokemon.

It will have 30 built-in games and connects to a television with an HDMI cable, The Verge reported

The designers also looked to the past for the controller, copying the original NES gamepad. 

But there is one downside. Players won't be able to use the old cartridges that are collecting dust in their closet. 

The NES Classic Edition will be available November 11 for $59.99.

Classic games like "Galaga," "Donkey Kong," "Castlevania" and the "Super Mario Bros." series will be included in the 30 games.

A Sega Genesis emulator has been on the market for those who want the 16-bit gaming experience. That machine takes the old Sega Genesis cartridges.

There are also Atari and Intellivision consoles that resemble their original counterparts available.

Indiana animal shelter urging 'Pokemon Go' players to walk dogs

An animal shelter in Muncie, Indiana, is asking "Pokemon Go" users to walk shelter dogs while they play the game.

The augmented reality game encourages players to get up and out while they hunt for Pokemon characters.

"Pokemon Go" collects GPS information from players' smartphones to place Pokemon in locations that are within walkable distances. Many characters are placed in public places.

>> What is 'Pokemon Go?'

The Muncie Animal Shelter started the volunteer program Tuesday after the shelter director, Phil Peckinpaugh, was inspired by his 6-year-old daughter, Ruthie, and his 7-year-old nephew, who both play the game, ABC News reported.

"I started playing with Ruthie, and it was actually pretty fun," he told ABC. "Then the other day, while on my way to work, I noticed droves of young people walking around playing this game. I thought, 'Wouldn't it be great if all those people were walking with our dogs?'"

Peckinpaugh created the program Pokemon Dogs to push his idea. 

He created a flier and posted about the program on the shelter's Facebook page.  The Facebook post has been shared more than 25,000 times.

Come out to the Muncie Animal Shelter between 10am-5:30pm any day and walk an adoptable dog as you hunt for Pokemon and hatch eggs!Posted by Muncie Animal Shelter on Tuesday, July 12, 2016

Peckinpaugh said lots of people have already begun participating in the Pokemon Dogs program. 

"There's been an incredible response, and it's just kind of taken off," he said. "We even had to go and buy more leashes this morning."

Peckinpaugh said about 75 adoptable dogs can be taken out for walks.

"Just swing by and come to our front desk and ask for the Pokemon Dogs," he said. "And then, you know, maybe you even fall in love and come back and adopt that dog one day."

Church says no-go to ‘Pokemon Go'

A Renton, Washington, pastor wants to opt out of the new "Pokemon Go" game because of safety concerns.

Mark Kilcup is senior pastor of East Renton Community Church. He told KIRO 7 that cars have been loitering around the play structure behind his church on 156th Avenue Southeast since the popular game debuted last week. Tuesday morning, a pickup truck Kilcup didn’t recognize parked near the structure, so he snapped images of it on his cellphone and then confronted the driver. In cellphone video he shared with KIRO 7, Kilcup asked the driver “What are you up to?” The driver responded “We’re just playing 'Pokemon.'”

“We are concerned about people we don’t know that are near our play set because the safety of these children is our No. 1 priority,” Kilcup said.

Kilcup said he called the Renton Police Department and the King County Sheriff’s Office -- not because he wanted anyone arrested for playing "Pokemon Go," but because he wanted to know if there was a way he could prevent the game from being played on church property.  He said both law enforcement agencies told him to take the issue up with staff at The Pokemon Company International’s office in Bellevue. So Kilcup drove to Pokemon’s office on 108th Avenue Northeast, where he said he was told to go, and was told the company’s legal department would be in touch.

So far, Kilcup said he has not received a response.

Meanwhile, "Pokemon Go" players continue to show up at the play structure.

“We would like to opt out of this "Pokemon Go" game,” Kilcup said, believing his request shouldn’t be a difficult one to honor. “They should have anticipated problems like this. They should have a team of people ready to resolve a conflict like this, if they’re a responsible gaming company.”

KIRO 7 has also contacted Pokemon and a representative from its media relations company, Triple Point, in San Francisco, for comment but has received no response so far.
