A panel beater west of Brisbane has received his first Pokemon Go-related crash repair and does not expect it to be his last.
The woman backed her car into another at Toowoomba`s Picnic Point during a Pokemon Go session, the crash report said.
"There were cars pulled over everywhere obviously chasing Pokemon," panel beater Darren Holmes said
"Everybody was on their phones and we were all talking about it through the week that we`d catch somebody ... and we`ve got one already.
"It`s only minor so it`s not a major accident but it`s still enough that it needs to be an insurance claim.
"I think we will see some more over the coming weeks I`m sure.
"Whether they actually admit to what they were doing is another matter."
Charmander breaches school gates
The interactive mobile phone game uses GPS to place fictional Pokemon characters, which users then need to catch by physically attending a location.
It has been linked to a spike in reports of trespassing, dangerous driving and other illegal behaviour.
Police across Australia have urged users of the interactive mobile phone game to play safely and warned it is not a defence against trespass.
In Sydney yesterday, two teenagers were fined after allegedly being caught playing the game while driving.
In Mount Isa in western Queensland on Wednesday, police called to reports of trespassing at a primary school found the popular Charmander character lurking outside the school`s gates.
Since its launch last week in Australia, its daily active users have overtaken dating app Tinder and is on track to reign supreme over Twitter.
