《精灵宝可梦Go》通过让玩家从一个地方移动到另一个地方，从而鼓励移动、锻炼和社交互动，彻底改变了游戏世界。大多数智能手机游戏都没有关注空闲时玩游戏对健康的影响，这对玩家的健康产生了严重的影响(Dr. Roberts, 2016)。《精灵宝可梦Go》改变了人们对玩家的看法，因为它反对传统游戏，而这也成为了吸引全球关注和狂热的主要因素。虽然游戏已经被观察到可以让玩家的思维更加敏锐，对问题的解决也更有反应，但游戏已经引发了玩家严重的生理和真菌学问题。如今，很多人只是把注意力集中在智能手机上，而没有环顾四周，享受周围的一切(Chen &荣怀，2014)。他们的生活被困在智能手机里，这导致了严重的健康和社会问题。
Pokémon Go has revolutionized the gaming world through the delivery of a game which requires for its players to move from place to place thus encouraging mobility, exercise, and social interactions. Most smart phones games have not focused on the health implications linked to playing the games while idle and this is having a grave effect on the player’s health (Dr. Roberts, 2016). Pokémon Go has changed its perception linked to the player which amounts to being the main factors associated with gathering so much attention and frenzy from the global communities since it goes against traditional gaming. While games have been observed to make player minds sharper and more reactive to problem solving, the games have triggered serious physiological and mycological problems on the players. Today it’s common to find many people simply focusing their attention on their smart phone without even looking around and enjoying all that’s around them (Chen & Ronghuai, 2014). Their life has been trapped within the smart phone which is leading to serious health and social problems.
Pokémon Go was developed with the aim of encouraging players to move from place to place while playing and develop stronger social bonds as well as see more places while traveling. The game does not require the player to purchase any special gaming console which helps reduce the cost and ensure its cost efficiency. It can simply be installed on new generation smartphones and the installation process is simpler to that of other games (Hromek, 2005). As mentioned earlier the games aim at promoting mobility but at the same time, some serious effects linked to this can be sighted already even before the game has been released globally.
