Niantec launches Pokemon Go in 15 new countries, explains reason for delay of India launch

Nintendo Swipes Pokemon Go UK Marketplace: Breaks Record Of 6 Years

Soon after launching in Japan and Brazil, 15 other additional countries will now be able to join the Pokemon Go fever officially. The game’s Facebook fan page announced that the company has launched the app officially in 15 new countries across Asia and Oceania.

The post reads, “Trainers in 15 new countries and regions across Asia and Oceania can now officially download Pokemon Go from the Play Store or App Store. Discover Pokemon in the world around you.”

The list of 15 countries include Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Solomon Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, and Palau.

Explaining the reasons for delaying the launch in India, Pokemon Go developer Niantec revealed, “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 Pokemon Go to users around the world. The large number of users has made the roll-out of Pokemon Go around the world an… interesting… challenge.” The company reiterates its desire to to unveil the app in other regions.

“And we aren’t done yet! Yes, Brazil, we want to bring the game to you (and many other countries where it is not yet available).”

Most of the third-party services like Pokevision are become unusable after the latest Pokemon Go update. However, services like Smart Poke 2 bypasses Niantic’s latest update. Smart Poke 2 is still in beta and it has a host of features to make playing Pokemon Go a breeze. In addition, there is an additional side effect of being unable to catch Pokemon during riding on a bike. But the absence of an official release is unable to stop fans playing the game
