What really is the Pokemon go game?

This particular application or game built for Android and iOS has been making waves all around the media world recently. Its been long an app took over the whole media. But what really is this Pokemon go game and why are people so into it?


First of all, see a screenshot from the game below:

According to PC Mag:

Pokemon Go is an “alternate reality game,” which means that it uses the world we live in and adds a fantasy layer on top of that. That fantasy layer is, of course, the insanely popular Nintendo franchise that launched on the original Game Boy in 1996, and gave that primitive portable a second renaissance. In Pokemon Go, players travel the world capturing a variety of cute and charming monsters inside Pokeballs, raise their stats, and battle them against each other.

And by “travel the world,” we mean that quite literally. You need to move around to succeed in Pokemon Go, visiting locations to catch monsters, get items, and more.


And the part of the official description of the game in Google Playstore says:


“Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokémon have been discovered on planet Earth!

Now’s your chance to discover and capture the Pokémon all around you—so get your shoes on, step outside, and explore the world. You’ll join one of three teams and battle for the prestige and ownership of Gyms with your Pokémon at your side.

Pokémon are out there, and you need to find them. As you walk around a neighborhood, your smartphone will vibrate when there’s a Pokémon nearby. Take aim and throw a Poké Ball… You’ll have to stay alert, or it might get away!

Search far and wide for Pokémon and items

Certain Pokémon appear near their native environment—look for Water-type Pokémon by lakes and oceans. Visit PokéStops, found at interesting places like museums, art installations, historical markers, and monuments, to stock up on Poké Balls and helpful items.”

Can you download and play the Pokemon go game in Nigeria and all Africa?

OK, first of all let me try it before I update you…I just did 🙂 and the screenshot below is the response I got from the game.

Anyway, its official that the Pokeman go game isn’t available in Nigeria and Africa yet. As a matter of fact, as at the time of writing this, the game is rolled out only in the US, New Zealand, and Australia, but they are preparing to launch across Europe and Asia as well.

But how can you play it?

Whenever the game is available in your area, below is the official  Android and iOS links you can download it from:

Download Pokemon go for Android phones

Download Pokemon go for iOS


But as I write now, the game is not yet available anywhere outside the US, New Zealand, Australia, Europe (UK…)…

But wait, there are loads of APKs out there that are cracked and can get you the Pokemon go game irrespective of your area. But I am not going to share the links because most of them contains harmful malwares which is not good for your health, no for your mobile device. Why don’t you wait for the release of your official version for your country?


Anyway, I have it and I play it in Lagos, Nigeria 🙂 You too can!


But I want to play, how can I download the APK installation file?

OK, if you insist you want to play the Pokemon game, I will give you the APK link to the one that I presEntly use in Nigeria and of course anywhere in the world. Its not from Playstore so you are downloading it at your own risk.
