According to Reuters the Chinese government are performing a really close evaluation about the personal safety and national security risk that Pokemon Go may pose to the country. The state administration of press, publication, radio, film, and television is specifically worried for the game

“threat to geographical information security and the threat to transport and the personal safety of consumers.”

In the United States Pokemon Go has been blamed for car accidents and people getting injured while playing the game, to the point that the game had to start implementing warning in it and even speed limitations to some of the game mechanics.

Another factor that makes the release of this game somewhat complicated in China is the fact that the game relies on Google Maps and this last one is blocked in the country.
