1. Your parents need to sign up for you -
2. Find out what your usage limits are -
3. Use a pseudonym for your player user name, not your real name, for privacy and safety.
4. Don’t go onto private property, you can stand nearby and still capture your Pokemon.
5. Remember your road safety rules and watch where you are walking, accidents have already occurred playing this!
6. Be careful that the location you are going to is safe, there are already reports of groups using this game to trap and rob players.
7. Take a backup battery, your phone’s going to run out of juice fast!
8. Make sure you know the groups you are playing with. Make sure your parents know who you are with.
9. Pokemon don’t go to sleep! Agree a time that you will come home and stick to it.
10. If in the future the game asks you to link any social media accounts or messaging accounts with it… don’t.
