Pokémon Go has captivated the entire world within just ten days of a limited launch. Everyone around is going crazy from leaving their job to be a full-time Pokémon trainer to posting online to offer services as a professional Pokémon trainer for hire. In all the insanity regarding Pokémon Go here is a list of instructions on how not to be a Pokémon master.
1. Sensitive moments
People around going overboard with catching Pokémon, playing the game in all sorts of places and circumstances. But sometimes it's not cool to play an augmented reality game while ignoring events in the real world like in Court while a case hearing is on.

It's never a good idea to play a game in a riot or even a moving car.
2. Sensitive Places
Pokémon GO data works on the points submitted by Ingress and the automated algorithm. The algorithm converts famous and popular places as Pokéstops. But that does not always translate into a sensible decision by automated systems.
9/11 memorial and Auschwitz are probably the last places you would want to play a game because of sheer insensitivity.
We do not consider playing "Pokémon Go" to be appropriate decorum on the grounds of ANC. We ask all visitors to refrain from such activity. — Arlington Cemetery (@ArlingtonNatl) July 12, 2016
3. Being a creep
The game does an excellent job in making the gamers get out in the real world and interact with the world and people. People, thanks to this game are getting much more exercise than they ever could which is great. But regardless the amount of exercise, they need to avoid several instances. Pro Tip- Switch off the AR mode while trying to capture the Pokémon.
Living in an old church means many things. Today it means my house is a Pokémon Go gym. This should be fascinating. — Boon Sheridan (@boonerang) July 9, 2016

4. Weird Places
The automated data and Ingress data is by default not inaccurate, taking in the account, the time gap between present and data collection date. There are a lot of places that have shut down or replaced by inaccurate data. So even though it is ok to stare at the weird places but not necessary to enter the place.

Not the best of locations to place Pokéstops.
5. Law enforcement
The law enforcement doesn't mind the general public playing games, but it is not cool to freak them out. There have been reports of people being arrested while they were stopping at odd places in the night to catch 'em all.

6. Getting carried away
It's okay to play a game, but it is borderline insane to get stabbed but continuing to play the game.

Taking Pokémon GO, too far.

It is better to accept instead of living in denial that you can't catch 'em all than getting stabbed or robbed in the process. Because no virtual Pokémon will manifest itself in reality to resurrect you back to life.
