The Singapore Army and Republic of Singapore Air Force have joined in the chorus of advisories issued in response to the launch of Pokemon Go in Singapore.

Both the army and air force have taken to Facebook to post candour-infused advisories to warn Pokemon Go players to stay away from protected grounds to avoid trespassing and not be caught using camera phones in restricted areas.

The Singapore Army wrote on Facebook:

It’s time to put on your running shoes and beat Snorlax and Drowzee this weekend! Now that Pokemon Go has released in Singapore, it is no longer a Farfetch’d dream to catch them all and defeat Team Rocket.

However, while Seaking them out, don’t forget that you can’t use the camera on your phones in green zones of our camps, even if it’s to catch that rare Dragonite in your CO’s office or Chansey at the Medical Centre. Don’t trespass into military camps because our vigilant Security Troopers are Machamps ready to take you down.

We know that Diglett and Onix could help you dig a shellscrape out in the field, and Arcanine would definitely make a great addition to the Security Troopers guarding our camps. However, we need responsible and aware trainers like you to be the very best, like no one ever was.

Good luck trainers!

The Republic of Singapore Air Force wrote in a post much earlier in the day:

#BreakingNews! Seems like our planes are not the only ones flying around the island today! Pokemon Go is out!

But no trespassing into our air bases and camps to catch those Pokemons! All intruders, our Force Protection Troopers are gonna catch them all!

The Singapore Navy has not issued any response in the meantime.
