While we keep hearing (isolated) reports of real-life trouble caused by the virtual hunt of fictional creatures devised by The Pokémon Company over two decades ago, Niantic and Nintendo remain fully committed to the rapid global expansion of the most popular mobile game in history.

No, we’re afraid Pokémon GO is still not available anywhere in Asia, which feels ironic and cruel, instead spreading its wings relatively quickly from the US, Australia and New Zealand to Germany, UK, Italy, Spain, Portugal, and now, more than two dozen additional territories across the old continent.

These include every nation from Austria to Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Greenland, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, and Switzerland.

Both as far as Android and iOS users are concerned, of course, so rain or shine, in the mountains or on the beach, from Google Play or Apple’s App Store, you’re just a few (official) steps away from catching the likes of Pikachu.

Notably missing, alongside Japan, Korea or China, are Russia, Turkey, France, Ukraine or Serbia from the fast-growing support list, so this worldwide phenomenon still has a ways to go before literally taking over the world.
