    China says they'll allow Pokemon Go in the country when it's deemed safe
    Niantic and Nintendo have launched Pokemon Go in multiple countries around the world, but it has yet to debut in China. Chinese officials feel that augmented reality poses a risk to personal safety and national security though, so they don't want the technology used in the country.

    While it might seem like a missed opportunity for Niantic, the developers of Pokémon Go, the company probably had no plans to expand the game into China in the first place, seeing as how the game relies on Google Maps, which is blocked in the country.

    BTW is anyone actually still playing Pokemon Go? Presumably the fad has waned, winter cold weather etc.
