Pokemon Go is getting everyone involved

A Michigan’s children’s hospital is now using Pokemon Go to help get their patients out of their rooms and interacting with one another!

Usually the halls are quiet in hospitals but not this one, the video game has given the kids something cool to do during their lengthy stay.

People on the outside of the hospital walls are even kind enough to drop lures on the hospital so that the children can catch more Pokemon.

And while this hospital has found success with people playing on the hospital grounds, other hospitals have banned the game all together.

Some people have wandered into places they shouldn’t have wandered and that has caused some issues.  But to solve that, the staff has placed signs stating where a hot spot is.

Who do you hunt Pokemon with?
