Spanish fans play the highly addictive Pokemon Go game during a gathering in central Madrid, Spain, Thursday, July 28, 2016, to play the computer game. In the game players try to capture, battle, and train virtual creatures in their real world locations using the GPS and camera on their smart devices.

LOS ANGELES — The creators of "Pokemon Go" say they're working to remove real-world locations that don't wish to be included in the mobile gaming sensation.

The Pokemon Company's consumer marketing director J.C. Smith says they're updating the augmented-reality game so it remains fun for players but respects the real world.

The location-aware game provides virtual rewards for players who visit real sites designated as "Pokestops" in the game. Several locations, such as the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park in Japan and the Arlington National Cemetery in Washington, D.C., have asked to be removed from "Pokemon Go."

Smith wouldn't offer a timeline of when updates will come to the game. "Pokemon Go" developer Niantic offers an online form to request exclusions, but changes to the game are not automatic.
