A new study has investigated the relationships between Pokémon GO and psychological distress from an existing workers’ cohort in Japan. Psychological distress was measured using the Brief Job Stress Questionnaire (BJSQ). Of the total of 3,915 workers at baseline, 2,599 workers completed the follow-up survey after Pokémon GO was released. Among those who completed the follow-up survey, 246 (9.7%) had continued to play Pokémon GO for 1 month or longer. These Pokémon GO players were significantly younger (M = 37.09 ± 10.85) than non-players (M = 42.66 ± 10.65). The other participant characteristics did not significantly differ between groups.
