Meanwhile, Pokemon Go fans in Singapore have fanned out across the nation in search of their hidden pocket monsters and to take control of "gyms" which are real-life locations throughout the real world.

A number of "pokestops" and lures are scattered across various locations in the country. It can be said that Singapore is in a state of frenzy after the mobile game was launched there on August 6.

The Muslim Converts' Association of Singapore has one pokestop at its compound in Joo Chiat and Pokemon players are seen gathering there to catch Pokemon characters.

On Sunday, the association posted an advisory on Facebook reminding players "to maintain our building cleanliness and sanctity while you are here ... (and) to reduce noise as we do have classes and other religious activities going on throughout the day".

The Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery is the home to a number of pokestops and a Pokemon GO gym. Hence, an increase in the number of visitors, mainly players was noticed there.

The National Gallery Singapore was not excluded from the list of Pokemon players. The gallery put up signs telling its visitors that "unpleasant and uncooperative" Pokemon Go trainers would be removed from its premises.

But on its Instagram feed, the gallery added: "Do remember to tag us if you caught any Pokemon Go at our gallery.

Other tourist places are also planning to set firm parameters for avid Pokemon Go players for safety as well as security.
