Pokemon Go Meowth and Team Fortress Pentagon Bans Pokemon GO Over Potential Spy Threat Unless you’ve been living under a technological rock the last two months, you should be very familiar with the most downloaded mobile game app in history (100 million and counting)? Pokemon GO. The game, based on Nintendo’s highly popular franchise, allows regular people to become Pokemon “trainers” by searching all over the world for the little monsters, then catching them in virtual Pokeballs.
Pokemon Go has been banned from being played on all military installations by anyone: civilian or military. The Pentagon has also announced that Pokemon Go may not be downloaded onto any military-owned devices.
