The highly anticipated Pokemon GO was released in Australia and New Zealand, but fans in the United States and Europe have been eagerly refreshing Apple App Store and Google Play Store to check the availability of the game. The wait is over as Pokemon Go is now available in the U.S. for iOS and Android users.
When the Pokemon GO app was made available, The Pokemon Company had told its fan in the U.S. and Japan to ?please wait a while.? Even though it indicated that the Pokemon GO players in these countries would not have wait longer to play the game, several publications reported that players may have to wait around a week.
Earlier today, when Android users in the U.S. tried to install Pokemon GO, the Google Play Store showed a message ? ?unavailable in your country.? The Verge has reported that the Google Play Store Pokemon app became available for download in the U.S. shortly after the app became on iOS.
As of this writing, there is no confirmation on when the game will be available for download in the U.K., Japan and Canada.Speculations have it that the game will be released on a region by region basis as this was the strategy The Pokemon Company had adopted to release the beta test versions of the game.
The beta version was first made available in the Japan and then players in Australia and the United States were able to access it later on. Now that the game has been suddenly made available in the U.S., it is likely that Pokemon GO release date for the remaining countries is close at hand. However, the game can be downloaded and installed regardless of the country as the official Pokemon GO APK is already available.
