Pokémon Go is now the world’s most popular mobile game. Currently it is launched in limited countries. Few days back, Pokémon Go officially launched in Brazil and Japan. After that, official launch include 15 more countries.
A post on Pokémon Go official Facebook page reads “Trainers in 15 new countries and regions across Asia and Oceania can now officially download Pokémon Go from the Play Store or App Store. Discover Pokemon in the world around you!”.
These countries include: Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Solomon Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, and Palau.
Pokémon Go developer Niantic revealed the reason for the game’s delayed launch in countries such as India. “We have limited access by third-party services which were interfering with our ability to maintain quality of service for our users and to bring Pokémon Go to users around the world. The large number of users has made the roll-out of Pokémon Go around the world an… interesting… challenge,” admits the company, reiterating its desire to bring the game to other nations.

Most of these third-party services which were used to detect Pokémons near you are now unusable such as Pokévision, Pokémon Finder, Poké Radar are now unusable after the latest Pokémon Go update. Plus, there’s the added side-effect of being unable to catch Pokemon while commuting or on a bike. It’s just a matter of time before the likes of China and India receive Pokemon Go as developer Niantic has cleared what it deemed were impediments to a release of the game in every country officially. But in absence of official launch, no one is stopping Pokémon Go fans to stop playing.
