Pokemon GO Lands In The UK

At present Pokémon Go is officially available exclusively in the US, Australia and New Zealand.

He then launched Niantic Labs inside Google to focus on next-gen games, and spun it out as a separate company a year ago.

Pokemon Go, too, is everywhere. Candy Crush, at its height, boasted around 93 million daily active users globally.

To be clear, "Pokemon Go" players only comprised about 1 percent of Facebook's reported 1.5 billion users.

Pokemon GO releases in another major global market, this time bringing the phenomenon of real-life Pokemon training to the shores of the United Kingdom.

In the past few days, Niantic has resumed its worldwide launch of Pokémon Go, first in Germany, and then in the United Kingdom, suggesting that it is now "comfortable" with it server capacity again.

He confirmed that the game would soon be coming to Japan and that he expects "ultimately to launch" the game in South Korea, where Google's mapping functions are restricted due to security issues with North Korea. And it's exactly this thing that's determining Nintendo to go after websites hosting the APK and making Pokemon Go available for users living in countries where the game can not be downloaded from the store.

But in case you're too impatient for Pokémon Go to arrive at your country - there are also other ways to get your hands on it. It is estimated that there are more than 20 million Americans playing "Pokemon Go" every day, according to a Survey Monkey report.

Obviously, the app is available for download right now via the Google Play Store for Android and Apple's App Store for the iPhone. Nintendo and Niantic have a few microtransactions built into Pokemon Go, allowing players to jump ahead of others by buying Pokecoins.

While the game has been wildly popular among users and is reportedly set to leapfrog Snapchat, Tinder and Twitter in terms of subscribers, several groups have voiced safety concerns over the app.
