Indonesia on Wednesday banned its armed forces and police personnel from playing Pokemon Go -- the game that has become a global rage -- while on duty.

The ban also includes personnel of the presidential palace in Jakarta, where warning signs have been placed that read, "No playing or hunting Pokémon in the palace area", EFE news reported

"The palace is the President's office and it is not a playground," said Presidential Office press bureau chief Bey Machmuddin.

The game, which has become a global phenomena following its staggering success in the US and other countries, invites players to explore the length and breadth of the world in search of Pokemon in augmented reality.
