NPARKS ASKS POKEMON GO TO REMOVE POKESTOPS IN NATURE RESERVES

Since the launch of Pokemon Go in August, the National Parks Board (NParks) has asked that Pokestops – the game’s virtual pit stops found in real-world locations to be removed from off-limit areas of three nature reserves.

Located in off-limit areas of Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, Central Catchment Nature Reserve and Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, NParks said the removal was to prevent Pokemon Go from digressing off trails and in the process trample on vegetation, disrupt wildlife thus causing damage to the environment and putting themselves in harm’s way.

Pokemon Go developer, Niantic said that they could not confirm the status of removal request for specific Pokestop and gym locations in Pokemon Go, but are moving quickly to review and address all such requests.
