'Pokemon Go' is a no-go for Milwaukee's VA Medical Center

The game takes people all over, and uses Global Positioning System to guide them.

Hollinger said the museum is usually pro-technology, urging visitors to share their experiences on social media, but they worry this game has gone too far. Both institutions, it's reported, are attempting to get the markers removed from the game.

"Playing Pokemon Go in a memorial dedicated to the victims of Nazism is extremely inappropriate", Andy Hollinger, the museum's director of communications told CNNMoney.

At Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia, spokesman Stephen Smith said the move was pre-emptive rather than to address a problem they're already seeing.

During a visit to the museum on Tuesday (local time), a Reuters reporter saw various visitors using phones to take photos or send messages, but no one obviously playing games.

But some gaming addicts have been unable to stop playing when visiting sites to the millions of victims of the Holocaust.

The Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland and the Holocaust Memorial Museum in the US want Niantic Labs, the maker of Pokemon Go, to take the two sites off the augmented reality app used by players to hunt cartoon creatures, reported USA Today.

Although it has yet to be officially released in Israel, multiple people - including Israeli President Reuven Rivlin - posted screenshots from the game in the Jewish state.

The developers have also warned people to play with friends after four people were arrested after using Pokemon Go to lure gamers to remote places to rob them at gunpoint.

"We want to make sure that they're paying attention", said Cercone.

In the game, virtual creatures are superimposed into the real world using your camera and augmented reality.

"I just don't think people should be playing a game where people remember people who suffered and were tortured and who died", she says.

Since it was officially released last week, Pokemon GO has been capturing the headlines fairly often for a variety of reasons that are more or less appropriate. According to the Post, there are three stops in the museum.
