Yesterday, at the KKL-JNF Hula Lake Park in the Upper Galilee, measures were taken to prevent Pokimon hunting. “We noticed that scores of visitors at the site were busy hunting Pokimons,” said Inbar Rubin, site Content and Touring director, who also noted that “the site is full of trails for pedestrians and vehicles and designated observation points, and visitors are not allowed to stray from the marked trails so as not to endanger themselves or the wildlife in the nature reserve.”

Inbar has had a sign installed at the entrance to the site, which forbids Pokimon hunting. “It’s a wink but also a warning,” she explained. “We don’t want children, heaven forbid, straying from the walking routes and falling into the water or getting hurt while chasing Pokimons. We realized that the site is rife with valuable Pokimons, with charge points and numerous Pokimon eggs, which are highly favored since they can be used to generate Pokimons.” Inbar also said it is not only children and teens who are catching Pokimons at the site but also adults. “Consequently, we decided to install the sign, which is a bit humorous but also asks that instructions be followed,” she concluded.
