ABILENE, Texas, July 27 (UPI) -- A Texas teacher created a poster promising her students some serious in-game consequences if they are caught playing Pokemon Go on her time.

Amelia Carnagey, who teaches a college class in Abilene, Texas, shared a photo on Facebook of the poster she made to warn students against playing the popular augmented reality game on their smartphones during class.

The poster reads:

"No playing Pokemon Go in class

1st offense: I will take your phone from you and WASTE all of your pokeballs! Probably on a Pidgy or Rattata... But I will miss. Over and over and over...

2nd offense: After wasting your pokeballs, I will use your incense and a lucky egg! Pokemon might be surrounding you, but you're out of ways to catch them!

3rd offense: I will transfer your highest level and rarest Pokemon! Maybe even 2... or 3 of them. 1 candy in exchange for a 1453 CP Dragonite.. seems fair.

If I can't catch them you can't catch them!"

Carnagey said her students were amused by the poster and the threats made by the document are only meant to be taken as humor.

"To everyone saying rude things, I teach college and this is just a joke. My students this morning all chuckled about it, and as I am a chill art teacher who rarely has to pull any disciplinary measures whatsoever... let alone affront civil rights, thought this was amusing!" she wrote.
