In Cambodia, want to play Pokémon GO? The wait is over! Cambodian smart phone users are today able to download Pokemon Go and launch the app. No more locked geo-location. Play and catch! Last month, we covered it here: Pokémon GO in Cambodia? So we’re excited to get confirmed by a number of Twitter users who tweeted that they can enjoy Pokemon Go. Early users in Cambodia had to download the installation file from unauthorized online site to test it out. And there was no much luck as Cambodia was locked from the geo-location use.
On August 5, 2016, Niantic, the company that owns the world’s most popular game, announced that:
“Pokémon GO is now available in countries and regions across Asia and Oceania,” adding that
Trainers in 15 new countries and regions across Asia and Oceania can now officially download Pokémon GO from the Play Store or App Store. Discover Pokémon in the world around you!
Countries and regions include: Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Solomon Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, and Palau.
We’ll continue to cover the phenomenon of Pokémon Go in Cambodia. We think Phnom Penh and Siem Reap will have more Trainers than other part of the country. Right now, if you want to share your excitement as well as your experience about this game in Cambodia, please use this hashtag: #PokemonGoKH.
