Meanwhile on the other side of the world Pokémon Go has been banned in Iran with authorities citing “security concerns” as the reason. The report by the BBC says the decision came from the High Council of Virtual Spaces, Iran’s official body for monitoring online activity.

Security concerns have also been expressed in the land of the free with New York authorities saying they will ban around 3000 registered sex offenders from playing Pokémon Go while on parole.
