So Pokemon Go has officially been released, and players everywhere have been scouring the world, hunting down and catching Pokemon. The creatures can pop up anywhere, including a police station in Northern Australia.

Twitter user @isshikisenpai noticed that the Darwin Police Station in Australia houses a Sandshrew, which has prompted the station to take action and release a statement to ensure that prospective Pokemon trainers don’t start wandering through their halls.

“For those budding Pokemon Trainers out there using Pokemon Go whilst the Darwin Police Station may feature as a Pokestop, please be advised that you don’t actually have to step inside in order to gain the pokeballs.

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!”

It’s a wonderful message, asking players to stay out while also giving them a helpful heads up on how they can still catch the Pokemon. I doubt this is going to be the first time something like this happens, either. There are bound to be some more virtual pocket monsters in less-than-convenient locations. Let’s hope that everyone is as cool about it as the Darwin police.
