What You Should Know About Pokémon Go

Firstly, Pokémon Go is an interactive mobile game that uses your phone's GPS data and clock to show Pokémon hidden near your current and physical location. The Pokémon which appears on-screen in the app can be captured. As you go to different cities and towns, the type of Pokémon you encounter will change. The game was developed by Niantic, the concept for the game was conceived in 2014 by Satoru Iwata of Nintendo and Tsunekazu Ishihara of the Pokémon Company as an April Fool's Day collaboration with Google, called Pokémon challenge.

The game's extended launch began on July 6, 2016, with releases in Australia, New Zealand, and the United States. Due to server strain from high demand upon release, Niantic CEO John Hanke stated that the release in most other regions was "paused until Niantic was comfortable" fixing the issues. European releases started on July 13, and the game became available to most of the continent over the following ten days. The Japanese launch was initially reported to be on July 20; however, the game was delayed after a sponsorship deal with fast food chain McDonald's was leaked, instead releasing on July 22. Although the game was proposed to be released in France on July 15, it was postponed until July 24 out of respect and due to safety concerns following a terrorist attackin Niceon July 14. Following the shut down of third-party apps and websites in late-July 2016—significantly reducing server strain—Niantic was able to continue pushing release worldwide. Central and South America and most of Southeast Asia subsequently saw releases in early August. Indonesia was the first Asian country to have the game playable; despite the game not being officially released in that region until August 6, people have been playing it since early July. In South Korea, the game has not been released yet and major restrictions on the use of online mapping data exist. However, due to a glitch, a small area around Sokchoin the northeastern part of the country was considered a part of Niantic's North Korea mapping region, making the game fully playable in that area. Numerous people have taken advantage of the gap to play the game. Bus tickets from the capital city of Seoulsold out and people living within Sokcho shared information on free Wi-Fi areas to tourists. Players also discovered a gym in Panmunjom, along the Korean Demilitarized Zone; however, Niantic later removed it from the game. Following the release ofPokémon Goin Japan, parts of Busan also became playable as parts of the city are considered part of Japan's mapping area due to the proximity of Tsushima Island. In mainland China, Google services are banned by the Great Firewall. Players of Pokémon Goin China bought Australian App Store IDs and used a GPS spoofing app to use Google services and because there are no Pokémon to catch in China. Many Chinese people downloaded a clone app called City Spirit Go, which was released shortly afterPokémon Go's beta test in Japan. However, some of the boundary regions where are next to the countries which are released Pokémon Go. Shenzhen was become the first city in China where has been available to play after Pokémon Go was released in Hong Kong at July 25, 2016. Afterwards, Southern Guangxi, Hainan, Southwest Guangdong and Southeast Yunnanare also available to playwhen Vietnam and Laos have been released Pokémon Go since August 6, 2016. During its launch in Southeast Asia, the game officially excluded Myanmar (Burma), but gamers around Yangon, Mandalay and Taunggyi have discovered that the game is fully playable after its release in Thailand.
