The latest game craze finally goes live in the country. I just learned about it today from my Twitter feed and I did check that you can search for it in the AppStore locally. I downloaded the game from the US AppStore when it first launched. I also have an account there but I cannot search any Pokemon aside from Charmander. That has changed today when the game went live here. Aside from the Philippines, Pokemon Go also went live to 14 other countries which include Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Solomon Islands, Federated States of Micronesia and Palau. Go catch 'em all by downloading the app, just click on the button below. The app is available for free and offers in-app purchases.
