I was amused to read this tip in one primer: “The Augmented Reality (AR) setting might be the coolest part of the game, since it allows you to see Pokémon ‘interacting’ with the real world; but it’s a drain on your battery, and it can wreak havoc with your ability to aim in the game. Turn it off.” Nuff said.)

So there’s two sides to the AR coin which is it can absolutely raise and/or limit awareness of the player’s surroundings. What I wonder about this is if whether it limits or raises awareness is an indication of age, personality, view, or any other factor or just simply the effect hits some people some way and others another. And can a limited or raised awareness be innately good or bad?
