While many of you may have tired of the charms of Pokémon Go, a whole new group of trainers is just about to get started. Today developer Niantic Labs announced that the augmented reality mobile game is finally available in South Asia. Users in Nepal, Bhutan, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh can download the game from both Google Play and Apple’s App Store starting today.
“The Niantic team had to resolve a few administrative challenges before launching in order to ensure we could provide the best experience possible,” the developer explained in a brief blog post.
Trainers living in Nepal and other South Asian countries including Pakistan, India, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh can download Pokémon GO and explore their neighborhoods in search of Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle and many other Pokémon!
Since its initial launch in early July, the augmented reality game Pokémon GO has taken the world by storm. Although the game was not officially made available in all territories, millions downloaded it within hours of its launch. Ninatic’s servers were soon overloaded. Producers of the game, which requires smart phone users to travel about the real world, had then decided to ban, or more specifically, ‘geo-block’ the game after countless users downloaded it before its official release in the region.
