Pokémon GO and psychological distress, physical complaints and work performance among adult workers

A study titled: Pokémon GO and psychological distress, physical complaints, and work performance among adult workers: a retrospective cohort study was published online on September 7th, 2017 in Scientific Reports. The full study is available on Nature.com.

"The study examines the effects that Pokémon GO has on mental health and the relationships between Pokémon GO and psychological distress from an existing workers’ cohort in Japan. Online surveys were conducted to 3,915 full-time workers, at baseline (Nov 26, 2015–Feb 18, 2016) and at follow-up (Dec 1–4, 2016), using a self-report questionnaire.

The results of the study supported their primary hypotheses, indicating significantly better improvement of psychological distress among Pokémon GO players compared to non-players. The quantitative findings are the first scientific suggestion for the effects of Pokémon GO, the new mobile application game utilizing augmented reality, on mental health among workers.

The present study suggests that the working population may also enjoy the benefits of playing Pokémon GO, such as improved mental health. Our findings are in line with a previous study which reported that Pokémon GO could have health benefits for participants with different demographic characteristics (e.g., age, sex) because the negative association between playing Pokémon GO, and psychological distress remained after adjustment (sex, age, smoking and drinking habits, and job stressors). Therefore, playing games utilizing the technology of augmented reality could be recommended among workers with various characteristics."

The official Pokémon website has announced that Ampharosite, Altarianite, Latiosite and Latiasite Mega Stones are now available to players through the universal code: DRACHE. Players of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon can get these Mega Stones from September 8th, 2017 until October 31st, 2017.

Get Mega Stones to Power Up Your Pokémon!

This is it! The final batch of special Mega Stones that will grant Mega Evolution powers to some of your Pokémon. This month's special code grants you Ampharosite, Altarianite, Latiosite, and Latiasite in your copy of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon. These Mega Stones allow you to Mega Evolve Ampharos, Altaria, Latios, and Latias (respectively) during battle, giving them the ability to unleash awesome attacks!

Mega Stones special code: DRACHE

These Pokémon aren't available in the wild in Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon, but you can bring them into Pokémon Bank via PokéTransporter from earlier games. The Pokémon you transfer will lose their items in the process, however, so this distribution is currently the only way to get these Mega Stones in Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon.

To get the four Mega Stones:
  1. Select Mystery Gift on the main menu.
  2. Select Receive Gift.
  3. Select Get with Code/Password, then Yes, and then Yes again to connect to the Internet.
  4. Enter your password.
  5. Watch as you receive the Mega Stones.
  6. Speak to the delivery person in any Pokémon Center to pick up your Mega Stones.
  7. Be sure to save your game!

Release the full strength of these powerful Pokémon when you Mega Evolve in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon with these awesome Mega Stones.

Also, make sure you enter this password by October 31, 2017. That's the final day for Trainers to claim their special Mega Stones, so don't miss out on this opportunity to unlock your Pokémon's Mega Evolutions!
