Pokémon Go is a spin-off of the Pokémon series, but this time, players move in the real world. This has led to some inevitable happenings, such as players being lured and attacked, going in deserted and dangerous areas at night, or players stumbling into dead bodies, and even worse, falling off cliffs.
