To the surprise of the police, the two players said that they had known each other for a few years, precisely because of Pokmon Go.

To understand Sato’s revolt, I need to remember that, to win pokmoedas, I need to master a gym in the game gym. Although Niantic is launching new modalities for the conquest of pokmoedas, such novelties have not yet reached Japan.
