While you’d think this would go without saying, Japanese authorities are finding it necessary to remind the citizens of their fair country that it is unwise to play Pokemon Go in a radioactive hot zone.

Tokyo Electric Power Company Holdings (Tepco) has requested that Pokémon Go developer Niantic and the Pokémon Company prevent Pokémon appearing in and around areas affected by the nuclear reactor meltdown in Fukushima to help prevent encouraging players to enter dangerous areas.

Tepco said it has tested the Fukushima Daiichi plant, which was partially destroyed by the March 2011 disaster, the nearby Fukushima Daini plant and the Kashiwazaki-Kariwa plant in Niigata Prefecture and found Pokémon on-site.

I guess people think that they might find special radioactive Pokemon, or maybe even some zombie apocalypse variants. Sadly, all they will probably find is cancer.
