vPokémon Go is the latest Pokémon game to be announced for Android and iPhone in which smartphone owners will be able to catch and battle Pokémon outside in the real world!

Coming some time in 2016, Pokémon Go is being developed by Niantic, a company known for the mobile game Ingress. Paired with a peripheral called the Pokémon Go Plus, trainers will be able to take their phones out into the real world and catch Pokémon in the actual wild.


The Plus device vibrates and flashes on your wrist when a Pokémon is nearby, allowing players to resist the urge to stare at their phones constantly, and instead enjoy the world around them, or whatever you're supposed to be doing while not catching Pokémon. From there, you'll take out your phone and get to work.

This August Ruslan Sokolovsky recorded himself while playing Pokémon GO inside Church of All Saints in Yekaterinburg, after having been made aware such activity within the church could result in jail time...

“How can one offend by entering a church with a smartphone?” Sokolovsky asked. “I decided to just catch some Pokemon in church because, why not? I believe it’s both safe and not prohibited by law. Let’s go.”

Well, fast forward to after Sokolovsky posted the video he was investigated by police, and shortly thereafter charged with inciting hatred and offending religious sensibilities. He's being detained for two months, and stands to face up to five years in jail.

What do you guys think, does the punishment fit the crime here?
