This Australian Hospital is BEGGING Pokémon GO Players To Stop Placing Lures Nearby For Sick Kids

Pokémon GO hospital begging stop placing lures

If you’re active in any of the many Pokémon GO Facebook groups, or if you keep up with Pokémon GO news, you’ve probably seen one or two posts asking players to be charitable and drop any spare lures at children’s hospitals.

In theory, this idea is fantastic. The sick kids can’t really get out and about to catch Pokémon, so by dropping lures near the hospital you’re effectively bringing the Pokémon to them, which allows them to have fun playing this awesome game like the rest of us.

In reality, however, this might not actually be such a good idea. A children’s hospital in Melbourne, Australia, recently sent out a message to all Pokémon GO players in the area asking them to please refrain from dropping lures for the sick kids.

Why did they do this? Well, you can see for yourself:

On one hand, for the children who are capable of moving around inside the hospital and are able to play the game, the lures would be awesome. They’d have a great time catching Pokémon that they otherwise wouldn’t be able to catch.

But, on the other hand, some kids might be juuuuuuust out of range of a lured Pokéstop, or they might be unable to play the game altogether, and for them, knowing that Pokémon are nearby but are unable to be caught, is definitely not a good thing.

So what do you guys think? Do you think the hospital has a point, and that dropping lures for the sick kids could have unintended, negative consequences? Or do you think that they’re just over-reacting, and the we should continue helping out these kids in need?

Drop a comment below letting me know what you think.
