Pokémon is considered as among the most popular and successful cultural sports for most Japanese along with Tamagotchi and Hello Kitty. This is perhaps the main reason why many people are surprised because of the fact that Pokémon Go is not yet launched in the creature’s ancestral homeland. While lots of people are now enjoying this thrilling and amazing game in many countries of the world such as in UK right before its local launch through downloading the app from US store or even sideloading it, Japan still waits for the right time to come to download this app.
There are many speculations as to why Pokémon Go is not still out in Japan. One of which is because of technical reasons. Since this app has been plagued with many issues in the server in some countries where it is formally launched, chances are players who are connecting with the game will definitely experience difficulties. TheVerge recently reported on this event and is keeping Pokemon Go users everywhere on the edge of their seats.
Downloading the APKs from various places that are not Google Play is absolutely a great way to end up with malware. This is far from ideal, yet you will be guaranteed a smoother and malware-free Pokémon training experience when rollout expands. Many people are contacting representative from Pokémon Company, but did not respond to the any request. On the other hand, many Japanese are still looking for the most effective ways to have this app.
Just to be clear, Pokémon Go is a Japanese game and was developed by Niantic Labs, which is a US company that was once owned by Google. It is important to become aware that it is not a kind of Nintendo game. Pokémon Go primarily relies on the players exploring the real world to find not only Pokémon, but also accessories using the GPS system of the mobile devices in order to keep a good track. It is definitely an amazing excuse to get out of the office or house.
When the players encounter wild Pokémon, they just need to tap on it if they are close enough and that will then activate the device’s camera so the players can try and then capture it. The best thing about Pokémon Go is that it is a freemium game, which means that anybody can download it, but it has in-app purchases. The players can buy PokeCoins, in-game currency, to utilize right in the game.
One thing most people worry about Pokémon Go is its own power consumption; thanks to the heavy use of both phone’s camera and GPS. It is good to know that there is a low power mode in the settings of the game for players on low battery.
Overall, Pokémon Go is like a fun and exciting distraction that does not require very intense hours of attention just like the previous Pokémon games. This is suited for people who have grown up with franchise and who may now prefer bit of exploration and exercise. It is just sad to say that many Japanese cannot play Pokémon Go because of so many reasons.
