Yeah, Pokemon GO should be about exploring new places. I think the guys at Niantic should probably watch the intro of the first anime season again:

There’s not really much of this:

I will travel across the land
Searching far and wide

In Pokemon GO.

As for responsibility, I do see your point, and I definitely know how it’s caused some issues before (and likely hurt the game’s reputation a bit in the process). I just worry we’ve given up personal responsibility in the last few years or maybe decades.

But hey, there are definitely some places they probably shouldn’t be locating a gym or Pokestop. Like the Korean Demilitarised Zone or near places used for military purposes.
