The Pokemon Go+ device will be released in July. Nintendo

“Pokemon Go” has already been released in several areas of the world, including Australia and New Zealand. From the looks of it, fans may have started to get engrossed in the game, aiming to catch as many Pokemon as they can find.

Perhaps too engrossed, because even the Australian police have been taking notice of people who have been lurking by the station because of the game.

The Australian police had a nice message to “Pokemon Go” players. According to a post made on the official Facebook page, the Darwin Police Station is a Pokestop. However, the police have advised the public that they do not need to go inside the station to get Poke Balls.

“It’s also a good idea to look up, away from your phone and both ways before crossing the street. That Sandshrew isn’t going anywhere fast. Stay safe and catch ‘em all!” said the official Northern Territory Police, Fire and Emergency Services Facebook.

For those who are unfamiliar with the concept, a Poke Stop is where players can get a number of items. These are certain locations in the game, and are scattered all over the world.

Players who want a quick guide to what they should expect from and do with the final build can check out this guide courtesy of Polygon. There’s even a mention off a Lure Module, which is one of the items that can help catch a Pokemon.

According to the post, the Lure Model will attract a Pokemon to a Poke Stop for 30 minutes. Those who are standing around the particular PokeStop can also benefit from its effect. Of course, the next time a player decides to use this, it’s best to see if it’s not near a landmark like the Police Station.

“Pokemon Go” is out as a final build on Android. iOS users will have to standby as to how they will get their shot at the title.
