Pokémon GO Community Day is back, and while I don’t want to overhype it, this is probably the best one the game has had to date.

The disputes are getting fresh attention after it was learned that CBS's newsmagazine 60 Minutes will air a segment on Sunday about Google's perceived anticompetitive behavior -- a segment that will include remarks from European Commission (EC) chief Margrethe Vestager.
