Petition For Harry Potter Version Of Pokémon Go Started
This Pokémon Go thing has become insane. Now there is a petition to make a Harry Potter version of the game.
Accio Harry Potter Go: Petition Asks “Pokémon Go” Creator for Harry Potter Version
A Care2 petition hopes to convince Niantic Labs and Warner Bros. Entertainment to create a Harry Potter augmented reality game
Augmented reality game Pokémon Go has quickly become one of the most popular smartphone apps of all time, surpassing Twitter in number of active daily users and Tinder in number of installs. And players and non-players alike want to see the trend continue: A new Care2 petition is urging Pokémon Go creator Niantic Labs to create a Harry Potter version of the game.
VIEW THE CARE2 PETITION HERE: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/380/697/285/
The petition is titled “Accio Harry Potter Go: We Want a Harry Potter Version of Pokemon Go!” and was started by Ashtyn Hannon, a 23-year-old Durham, North Carolina resident who calls herself a “huge Harry Potter fan.”
“I don’t play Pokémon Go, but I totally would if there were a Harry Potter version,” Hannon told Care2. “I’ve been a fan of Harry Potter for over 15 years. I think the unparalleled popularity of the Pokémon Go shows that Warner Bros and Niantic labs have a huge opportunity to create a version that features another beloved mystical world.
The petition was inspired in part by a BuzzFeed article, and Twitter users quickly jumped in to voice support.
Hannon says she hopes Niantic acts on her request.
“I hope that Niantic remembers my Care2 petition when considering new projects.”
A separate Care2 petition asking Niantic to remove the Holocaust Museum as a PokéStop has gathered over 13,000 signatures.
