Probably no video game has affected the world as much as Pokemon Go. For a lot of us, the game connects us with our childhood, when the older Pokemon video games and cartoon were what we obsessed on.
However, some people are reacting to the game with apprehension, and with good reason. There have been lots of bizarre accidents reported because people were obsessing over the game.
The Mumbai Police on Sunday found a very creative way to warn people about the dangers of Pokemon Go. They posted a GIF in a tweet, warning people to not get distracted while playing the game.
Ironically, however, the tweet features a character that looks like a policeman trying to capture a Pokemon in the game. So, after showing a policeman playing the game itself, the police are saying Pokemon Go is "out on streets, causing distraction".

You have to admire the creativity of the Mumbai police though. In another tweet, they ask the people to "be attentive" because "winter is coming".

Some of the responses to these tweets, though, were as funny as the original tweets by Mumbai Police, if not funnier.
