Pokemon Go is all over the world right now, on mobiles, slates and etc. You can’s open Twitter, Facebook or any social networking app without being bombarded by people talking about the game. With error plagues some iOS user after latest update, which made Pokemon Go ‘unable to authenticate’ to the augmented game. Temporary fix for the problem already surfaced. Moreover, Reddit is fully filled with stories regarding the subject, and the chances are you already know someone who is playing it even if you aren’t. However, that very much depends on where you live, the region.
Nintendo and Niantic took the decision to release Pokemon Go in the United States and some other countries initially. That means those in the UK or one of the European countries for example, is unable to play Pokemon Go. That’s a bit shame on, because from what we’re hearing, it’s actually really rather good.
No worry! Intrepid Pokemon collector, for we have a really best solution. As they say, where there’s will, there’s a better way, and that has never been more genuine than when a gamer needs to find a way to get a game they shouldn’t have access to.
With this mobile OS, you can always grab a game’s APK off of the web, though that isn’t always the most secure option anyhow, especially with games that are as popular as Pokemon Go. Sideloading the game would eventually mean that it won’t be able to receive automatic updates from the Play Store. Then here’s what you need to do.
Step 1: From your Android device of choice head on over to settings, then the accounts menu and select the option to add a new Google account.
Step 2: Sign up with a Google Gmail address. No matter as it’s not your main account. It will only be used to access the US-based Google Play Store.
Step 3: Continue with the process to add the account to yoyr device. It’s all fairly simple.
Step 4: Visit wallet,google.com/manage/w/0/#settings for the same account. You could also do this part on a computer for ease of use. You will now be prompted to select the country – choose the US, obviously – and enter a zip code of your choice. At this damn point, you can also add a payment method if you so desire. You don’t actually have to, though.
Step 5: Back on your device, download and install a VPN app. There are many to choose from on the Play Store, so find one that’s free. You’re only going to use it for a few minutes. Just make sure it has a server in the US that you can connect to.
Step 6: Connect to the US VPN.
Step 7: Open up the Play Store on your device, and switch to the new account that you created a few minutes ago.
Step 8: Search for, and then install Pokemon Go. That’s kind of what we’;re here for.
Step 9: Disconnect from your VPN. Switch back to your original Google account on Play Store as well.
Step 10: Lose the next few months of your life to catching Pokemon. Go, run and catch at your top level.
The process for downloading Pokemon GO is very similar in that you need to create a US-based Tunes account and then connect to the US App Store. It’s not rocket science, so just be sure to follow the steps and you’ll be playing Pokemon Go before you know it.
Update x1: Germany is now the first country in Europe to get Pokemon Go. The game is now available on German version of both the Android Play Store and iOS App Store.
