Though all the western and European countries already have Pokémon GO released in their countries, the Asian continent was still deprived of this game being officially available for them.
But, today’s the first release of Pokémon GO in an Asian country – Japan.
Since Japan was the birth place to the Pokémon GO concept and the anime series, all the millions of Japanese Pokémon GO fans were crazy of the game not being available to their hometown.
But, the wait is now over. Pokémon GO is now officially available in Japan!
Here’s the latest tweet made a few moments ago by Niantic’s official Twitter account:
Trainers in Japan, thank you for being patient. Pokémon GO is now available to download in Japan!

With that, it seems like Niantic will now start releasing the game in other Asian countries too, one by one, after they become more stable with the servers.
As of millions of more PokéFans will now start playing this game, there are chances of you being experiencing downtime due to a suddenly increased spike of traffic on their servers.
But no worries, Niantic says that it has now equipped itself with more stable, powerful and robust servers!
