While the first months after the announcement of Pokémon Sun and Moon were a little devoid of news, it seems Gamefreak and Nintendo have decided to make up for that now by ensuring we’ve got a steady stream of information coming out.
There’s still a lot not clear, but we’ve got a good glimpse at the region and some of the creatures in it, including Tapu Koko, the protector of the island you’ll be starting out on.
Unfortunately other things got in the way at the time and we didn’t cover the news, so we’re doing a bit of a round-up now. How is this going to work? Well, this part will focus on the Pokémon revealed in the past few weeks. Part 2 will focus on (possible) new features we’ve glimpsed in the trailers.
WOW, WE REALLY FEEL LIKE ACTUAL TRAIN-OH, THE SERVER’S DOWN AGAIN
As you might have heard, the European release of Pokémon GO has been delayed until further notice due to issues with Niantec’s servers. The game’s popularity has caused incredible strain, causing them to frequently stall or crash.
Of course it is already available in Australia, New Zealand and America and will remain functional while Niantec tries to fix the problem. European players with an android device can get a head start by downloading the Application’s file here.
We did this and we’ve had a lot of fun with the game over the past few days. It’s a good excuse to go out and explore and it’s fun to actually be the one roaming around looking for Pokémon personally for once.
The App is currently available on both the Apple and Android App stores in America. Us Europeans will have to “Please wait a while”, according to the Pokemon Company. That is, sadly, the extent of the information provided about a European release. A launch trailer has been released as well, which you can find in the article below.
As of today, Pokémon Go is available on the Apple App store and Google play store!…In certain regions, that is.
