    Pokemon Go users should put laws and regulations above the rules of the game, Swedish police press officer Fredrik Wallen told Sputnik Wednesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Pokemon Go is a free augmented reality mobile game where the picture displayed on the smartphone screen is projected onto real-world locations.

    “We don’t have a lot of problems concerning the game, and the users have a lot of questions – when you are playing this game you also have laws and regulations. And if you see a Pokemon that you want to catch is in an area you are not allowed to walk in, of course you can’t walk in there – you have to follow the laws and regulations no matter what the game says,” he said.

    As Pokemon Go is gathering popularity across the globe, local authorities have begun to warn players to be careful to avoid injuries while playing the game.

    “And of course, you also have to be careful when you are in public areas, you can’t walk out into traffic, and so on,” Wallen stressed.

    The main aim of the game is to catch a Pokemon, a pocket monster.
