New Game Notifications

As reported on r/TheSilphRoad, several players in Pokemon GO have received different notifications regarding caring for yourself and the players around you. Redditor u/McLovin1019 received this push notification about staying hydrated:

In addition, Redditor u/daftvalkyrie received an interesting notification in the raid lobby during Legendary Raid Hour. It appears that Niantic is taking steps to ask their players to be more careful when out playing the game. 

This may be in relation to a lawsuit that was settled by Niantic earlier this year regarding new rules for removing PokeStops.
