‘Pokémon Go’ is Officially launched in India Tomorrow
Sleeper hit title Pokémon Go is finally coming to India, Reliance Jio announced today. The 4G LTE-only carrier has partnered with Niantic, publisher and developer of Pokémon GO. The game will be available to download in the country starting Wednesday.
The partnership between the two companies means that thousands of Reliance Digital Stores and select other partner premises will turn into ‘PokèStops’ or ‘Gyms’, places where you’re likely to find most Pokèmon characters.
Users will find exclusive Pokèmon Go Channel in Reliance Jio’s social messaging app, JioChat. This will enabled them to socialize with other players and level-up faster, Reliance Jio said.
“We are delighted to partner with Jio to launch Pokémon GO in India,” said John Hanke, Chief Executive Officer and founder of Niantic in a press statement.
Indians can finally join the rest of the world in chasing Pokémons with their smartphones.
