Pokemon have taken over Poteau — have you joined in?

Pokemon Go, a new hit game developed by Niantic and published by The Pokemon Company, has overtaken the Poteau area.

Eric Standridge, Historic Downtown Poteau directer, said several spots in the downtown area are "Poke stops" for the popular location-based game.

Players explore the real world in their search for Pokemon stashed throughout Poteau, and across the entire United States.

However, Poteau Police warn to be careful not to trespass on private property, be aware of park curfews and curfews for minors and be careful when lurking outside businesses at night (you might get mistaken for a criminal).

So, have you joined in on the fun yet?
