'Pokémon Go' Is Live In Sri Lanka And South Asia

December 14, 2016

Pokémon Go has expanded to a new region about once a month, launching in Southeast Asia and Oceania back in August, parts of the Balkans and Central Asia in September and some of the Middle East in November. Today, the game is finally opening in Sri lanka and these South Asian countries: India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan and Bangladesh.

The app is available for Android smartphones and iPhones.

The official availability in these regions means more Pokéstops and Gyms, places where you find Pokemon characters will be available in local area. 

Even when Pokémon Go wasn’t officially available in India, sightings of people running looking at their phones in public places wasn’t rare. 

And much like other places, it created some sort of controversy in India as well. A Gujarat-based resident went to the court earlier this year alleging that the augmented-reality game was hurting the sentiment of people by showing eggs in religious places such as temples.
