It seems the global rollout for Pokémon GO is back in the full swing of things now as a whopping 15 more countries have been added to the list of nations officially allowed to play Pokémon GO. The 15 nations where the app is now downloadable from the Google Play Store and the App Store are as follows:
Federated States of Micronesia
Papua New Guinea
After having to wait so long, it’s good to see some more Asian and Oceanian nations get to join in with the Pokémon GO fun, but there is still a lot of work to go as more countries are still without access to the app, especially nations in Africa. Although thinking about it, Africa is probably the worst continent you could want to go off finding Pokémon in. If you go looking for an Arcanine, you might just find a Lion and Arbok could wind up leading you to a face to face confrontation with an actual Cobra. It is probably for these reasons why Africa is last on the list as a lot more work is involved to ensure a safe enough experience, just don’t do anything Pokémon GO related in Johannesburg Niantic, there’s a reason why it is often referred to the most dangerous city in the world.
