Mayor Fabrice Beauvois says people searching for Pokemon aren't paying attention and could endanger drivers. It's also leading to gatherings at night. Indeed, in Sweden, a mom complained after two teenagers were on a Friday-night Pokemon search and ran into a couple canoodling. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
