On July 6, 2016 pokéfans around the world were elated to hear that Pokémon GO, the long awaited mobile game had launched. Wait a minute…what? Only in a few countries? Ugh. Correction: On July 6 pokéfans in Australia, New Zealand and the United States were elated that Pokémon GO was launched. Everyone else merely got a serious case poke-envy.
Pokémon GO is built on Niantic’s Real World Gaming Platform and uses real locations to encourage players to search far and wide in the real world to discover Pokémon. Pokémon GO allows you to find and catch more than a hundred species of Pokémon as you explore your surroundings. TechCrunch reported that as of Monday the ground-breaking game has been downloaded around 7.5 million times in the U.S. From Google Play and the iOS App Store. Unfortunately for Canadians, the servers have been so taxed by the sheer volume of users that Niantic has delayed rolling the game out to the rest of the world.
In other words fellow Canadian’s, we’re out of luck…for now. Rumors are circulating however that a Canadian release isn’t far off so stay tuned to TheGeeko.com for updates. Pokemon GO Canada!
