"Pokemon Go" What You Need to Know About This Massive Mind Control Effort!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Less than a week after Pokémon Go’s launch, our streets are already filled with packs of phone-wielding, Weedle-catching zombies. They’re robbing our teens, filling our churches with sinners, and tricking our children into exercising. But worst of all, Pokémon Go is turning us all into an army of narcs in service of the coming New World Order.

Allow me to explain.

More like Privacy Poli-See Everything

Lots of apps have sketchy privacy policies, that’s nothing new. But the first set of alarms go off as soon as you realize that Pokémon Go’s policy does seem a bit more liberal than most, because not only are you giving Pokémon Go access to your location and camera, you’re also giving it full access to your Google account (assuming you use that to sign in).

There’s one section of the privacy policy in particular that seems to be getting the conspiracy theorists of the world up in arms and which Reddit user Homer_Simpson_Doh calls “very Orwellian”:


Most Orwellian of all is this line:

We may disclose any information about you (or your authorized child) that is in our possession or control to government or law enforcement officials or private parties.

As TechCrunch explained, Pokémon-loving millennials are far less likely to object to a few extra permissions when its Squirtle staring them in the face as they abandon their every god-given freedom than they do when Google reads their email.

Pokémon Go comes directly—directly—from the intelligence community

And it’s not like Pokémon Go itself doesn’t already have a direct(-ish) line to the CIA. After all, Pokémon Go was created by Niantic, which was formed by John Hanke.

Now, Hanke also just so happened to help found Keyhole. What does Keyhole do, you ask? I’d tell you to go to Keyhole’s website—but you can’t. It just takes you straight to Google Earth. That’s because Keyhole was acquired by Google back in 2004.

Before that, though, Keyhole received funding from a firm called In-Q-Tel, a government-controlled venture capital firm that invests in companies that will help beef up Big Brother’s tool belt. What’s more, the funds In-Q-Tel gave Keyhole mostly came from the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), whose primary mission is “collecting, analyzing, and distributing geospatial intelligence.”

Still unsure if Pokémon Go’s creator is a government spook? Check out this excerpt from the NGA’s in-house publication, Pathfinder Magazine:

Companies obtain customer information through avenues such as social media, mobile apps, and customer relationship-management software. They might as well be talking about Pokémon Go itself.

We’re all government pawns

So what exactly is the New World Order planning to do with our precious and meticulously collected data? They could take a few different paths, though they all boil down to the fact that we’re all cogs in Professor Willow’s great, big government machine.

Considering that one of Big Brother’s favorite pastimes is watching its citizens at all times always and forever, Pokémon Go is an ideal vessel for its many, many eyes. It’s addicting (kids, adults, and conspiracy-loving bloggers for can’t seem to put the thing for more than ten minutes at a time). And it has access to pretty much our entire phone, meaning tons of personal data and monster tracking capabilities:

Granted, Pokémon Go has a perfectly legitimate reason to want access to things like your location and camera. It needs the former to put you on the right map and the latter to make use of its augmented reality feature. But with those allowances, Pokémon Go (or rather, its parent company Niantic) not only knows where millions of people are at any given point, they could also very well figure out who they’re with, what’s going on around them, and where they’re likely headed next.

Remember, it doesn’t take that much to hunt someone down. All it took was one absentminded tweet for Vice to accidentally reveal the location of former fugitive and bath salts-enthusiast John McAfee.

As Reddit user fight_for_anything explains:

Obviously intelligence agencies have gained a lot of info from google maps and its street view, but this data was collected easily with driving cars. intel agencies may see google maps and street view as just an outline or a skeleton of the whole picture. getting more data, particularly that off the street and inside buildings, requires tons of man hours and foot work. a logistical nightmare.

enter Pokemon GO, where if you are an intel agency and you want photos of the inside of a home or business, you just spawn desirable pokemon or related objects there, and let totally unaware and distracted citizens take the photos for you, with devices they paid for, and those citizens pay for the experience.

imagine all these photos going back to some database (with the augmented Pokemon removed obviously. all these photos are probably GPS tagged, as well as having the phones internal gyro embed x/y/z orientation of the camera angle in the phone. these photos could be put together, much like google street view.

So as you’re “catching ‘em all” with all the other sheep, you very well may be creating a cache of high-res, data-rich images to get siphoned directly into the CIA’s greedy little pockets. Just picture it, a year from now when Trump-appointed CIA Director Liam Neeson is trying to figure out who helped The Washington Post reporters escape from prison, all he has to do is call over to Deputy Director Sutherland. “Check the Pokédex,” he’ll say, and up springs a Google Street View-esque simulation of every building, nook, and closet within a five-mile radius—all updated in real time.

As user fight_for_anything explains, “What if that local church is a mosque they suspect of terrorist activity? And they want photos of it, or photos of the cars around it and their plates, or photos of the people coming in and out…” Meaning that, should Director Neeson need eyes somewhere, all he as to do is tell the game to stick a Pikachu in the room and some unassuming schlub will send him a photo in no time.

Is it the Jews?


Based on the following thread, it seems that at least one Reddit user had his suspicions:

Of course, because whatever that user said was censored (by the Jews?), what role God’s chosen people are playing in this particular machination remains to be seen.

But I want to play

If, after all this, you’re still jonesing to go Pidgey hunting despite the Truth, Reddit user leocusmus has a few safety tips:

Just like ingress. Either use a spare phone or buy a cheap used one off eBay. Set up your main phone with a VPN, turn I Wi-Fi hotspot, and play from your spare phone with a dummy gmail account.

Which is more likely to keep you hidden from Big Brother’s prying eyes, sure, but it’s important to remember that, even then, you’re still not really safe.

You’re never really safe.

      The Pikachu Illuminati watching eye is awesome.

      Actually they already acknowledged that the permissions request wasn’t required, and it’s getting fixed.

      As for the rest of your article. It’s hilarious if it’s tongue in cheek, it’s completely moronic if it’s not.

      The problem is, the people that will just read it as literal and agree with you.

      It’s a cheesy game, that encourages exercise. Which, when every other article out there talks about kids just sitting around getting fat playing video games, coming up with a video game that requires movement, not just couch Wii remote movement, but actually walking blocks and miles, is a pretty good idea.

      Whatever you do, dont go get a throw away phone to play this game.

      There is no point, and it’s the worst, most uneducated advice ever. It would still require and active phone service with data to play. So you would be paying a lot for the game.

      And trust me, even without Pokemon Go on your phone, they can still see everything you do. It’s in your phone contract. Thinking the government needs a game developer to get to you is stupid. Did you read your whole End User Agreement before you clicked accept to activate your smart phone? All 60 pages? No? Then I wouldnt worry about what games you’re playing. They can see everything you do already.

      Play the game. It’s the least of your worries.

      Forget Big Brother Watching you and welcome to “Little kids are watching you”

      Kids are being turned into potable CCTV’s for the government to record every inch of ground and will make Google-Maps look tame.

      Little girl:

      Knock, Knock, Please sir can i look in your back garden for Pokémon freinds


      Yes little girl, i’ll be your freind, come with me i’ve got some puppy dogs to show you.

      From Star Trek the next generation a similar type game that had multiple skill levels but it had the ability to put the player in a drug/intoxicated type daze. All other interests was overtaken by the game. Lost of reality.

      • AmbrociousXP

        I remember that episode too. Data had to save all of their lives.

    • Morgana Le Fay

      Actually, they recently did an update to address the privacy concerns, so this article is outdated.

      • You People Are Nuts

        to go along with this guy….he’s outdated too.

        Why he comes on here and is so intent to make a d-bag of himself is beyond my plane.

    • JohnSmith2016

      Oh stop already. It’s a video game. People have been inventing video games for 40+ years. Get over yourself.

      • Just me

        When YOUR video game intrudes on MY reality it ceases to be a game and can get serious really fast.

    • SuperMario

      Trust me, I am Mario after all, the Illuminati are very much involved in making video games.

    • The Clucker

      Someone at work told me a trucker was playing this on the road and pulled over to get out of his truck to catch a pokemon and ended up causing a huge wreck. Not sure about the details. Half the folks out there can’t walk and chew gum, so I foresee more future accidents, with people walking around out in the world staring at this game. Survival of the fittest, I guess. If you’re dumb enough to die cuz you can’t look away from your smart phone and walk right out into traffic… all I can say is “Ha ha. You died.”

    • Awakenow2

      Just wait until they come out with a satanic magick gps game that has people wandering around summoning demons and doing sacrifices and such. This pokemon thing is just the beginning of some crazy $h!t. Just a thought. :neutral: :neutral:

    • Judge Roy Bean

      A gift from God, the time when electronics are fried to a crisp and you actully have to lean on each other for survival and not trivial, meaningless games.

    • C.C. Forche

      The presentation of every trend/new product creates want then need. The next step is to inspire the purchase. whether people are selling/buying stuff for money or ideas or just testing the water, so to speak.Social inspiration/control is every advertising campaign’s wish.Data collection/answers on all our responses has people paying high bucks whether it is politics/polls or retail. DON’T BE FOOLED!!! Pokeman is not for the pleasure of mankind. Someone want answers/control.Let’s see what it takes for the peons/lemmings to change their whole routine and follow a virtual Pokeman. Really….

    • deano

      it would be great to see the statistics……
      the number of ambulance paramedics stabbed 4 bonus points ….(Grand Theft Auto)
      the number of new recruits signing up after countless hrs being a pretend soldier…..(Call of Duty/Medal of Honour)

      We Know everyone wanted to join the US FORCES after the propagandi of “Top Gun”

      Mmmm?… I feel the need, the need for SPEED….(meth amphetamine) …you’ll Crash & Burn Maverick..>ICE-man :cool:

      I downloaded the game yesterday to see what all of the fuss was about. Wish I had read this article first because today when I woke up and checked my emails, I received a warning of an attempted hack in to my gmail. Luckily, google stopped the hacker because it didn’t recognize the device the hacker was using. Google’s email to me said that someone HAD MY EMAIL PASSWORD! Coincidence? I uninstalled Pokemon Go. I’ve never had a hack attempt until one day after downloading and playing this game. The game wants access to just about everything! It’s really creepy. You take your chances when downloading this game. Thank god for Google device recognition or i could have been locked out of my own email by some hacker. Not sure how the hacker got my PW though as it is very long and unusual.

      • The Clucker

        Since I went Mac instead of PC I’ve never had any problems with hackers or viruses. I don’t know what kind of phone you have but I would recommend switching to an Iphone. Much, much more secure.

        • The Real Deal

          Did you read my comment? I said the hack attempt was to get into my GMAIL, not my computer, not my phone.

        • Syco247

          Don’t know about all that, I can hack and open most apple devices. (I used to be a Dev for Apple)

    • Jacko

      Wait what? “Pokémon Go’s launch, our streets are already filled with packs of phone-wielding, Weedle-catching zombies.”

      The streets were already filled with phone gazing zombies. Do you even go outside? Or are you inside reading conspiracy theories all day?

      • Syco247

        Most likely the later, but as I am a man of outdoor hobbies, yes, phone zombies abound!

    • VirusGuard

      I wonder if all these cartoon mosters that people have to hunt down will all be placed near shopping stores like
      Toy ‘R US and not just in back yards that the NSA/CIA wants to spy on.

      Yes we promise not to steeel your personal data just like Google and it’s “Do no Evil” propaganda that is embed even in this page.
