Pokémon Go is finally available in India and other South Asian countries like Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Pakistan. We’ll tell you where to download Pokémon Go in India for iOS and Android. Additionally, you’ll find out how to play the game without incurring data charges!
It took several months, but the developers at Niantic released Pokémon Go in India. This means you can use your smartphone to become a Pokémon trainer and catch over 100 Generation 1 Pokémon, including Squirtle, Pikachu and Bulbasaur. With a little effort, you'll get your hands on Arcanine in no time!
Even better, Niantic partnered with Reliance Jio Infocomm, the company that provides high speed 4G LTE to more than 1.2 billion people in India. In fact, you can visit almost 3,000 Jio stores and other locations, which transformed into PokéStops and Gyms. Go to and then spin PokéStops to receive a variety of items, including Poké Balls to catch Pokémon, Potions, Revives and Razz Berries. Meanwhile, you can battle other trainers at Gyms and then take these Gyms over to earn more Poké Coins. You can hold these Gyms solo, or team up with other players. First, you will need to create a Trainer and then choose one of three teams: Team Mystic (blue), Team Instinct (yellow) and Team Valor (red).
Even better Jio’s Happy New Year deal allows SIM customers to play Pokémon Go without getting hit with data charges. Your fellow players in the U.S.A are jealous of that deal!
