Pokemon GO was launched recently in USA and only in couple of other countries but not in Pakistan. That’s probably to keep the load on servers in check while they optimize them for a wider launch. However, there is a large community of Pokemon lovers in Pakistan who are eager to play this game. So, we have compiled a guide for such players so that they don’t have to wait for Pokemon GO to be officially launched in Pakistan.
How to download Pokemon GO in Android in Pakistan:
- Download the latest APK of Pokemon GO from any reputable website. We recommend download it from APK Mirror.
- Find the downloaded file in the file explorer.
- Tap on the Pokemon GO APK to install it. (You might need to give special permissions to install APK manually. Refer to this guide for that.)
- That’s it. Play the game now.
How to download Pokemon GO in iOS in Pakistan:
To install and play Pokemon GO on iOS you need a US iTunes account. If you don’t have one, follow the steps below to create it.
- Launch the App Store from your device.
- Go to very bottom and tap on Apple ID: [your current email]
- Tap on Sign Out.
- Now go to home screen and launch Settings app.
- Tap on General.
- Tap on Language & Region near the bottom.
- Tap on Region
- Tap on United States to set it as your region.
- Now, open App Store and search for the Pokemon GO app. (Here is the link for your convenience, simply tap it and it will automatically take you there.)
- (Tap Change Store if it stays stuck on your old region and says the item isn’t available in the current store.)
- Tap Get.
- Tap Install.
- Tap Create New Apple ID.
- Check United States if it isn’t already checked.
- Fill out the required information.
- Tap None for billing information. Pokémon Go is free, and you can always buy U.S. iTunes gift cards later if you want to purchase other content from the store.
- Launch Mail to verify the email address you used for the U.S. account.
- Now, again open App Store and search for the Pokemon GO app. (Here is the link for your convenience, simply tap it and it will automatically take you there.)
- Tap Get and then tap Install. The game will not be installed.
You can now change the your region to your local one and back to your iTunes store. However, you can always come back to US iTunes store to update the game.
