Playing Pokémon Go is about to get a little bit harder in Milwaukee county parks. The creators of the game will now need a permit to use any park locations. Local residents have complained that players have left trash, toppled Porta Potties, and trampled plants in one county park. Excess security was also brought in to deal with the influx of after-hours visitors. Officials say the ordinance isnot designed to stop players from entering the park entirely, it’s meant to cut down on the damage players can cause and offset the cost.
