Here are the Countries that don’t have Pokemon GO yet!


Pokemon Go had a blockbuster launch and the whole world went crazy for it. The augmented reality game developed by Niantic Labs has also been successful in recording itself as one of the highest grossing and downloaded mobile games ever.

It has been more than three months since the game launched, but there are still some countries which haven’t officially received the availability to download the game yet.



Here’s a list of the countries which are still deprived of Pokemon Go.

Country/Region Status
South Africa Unofficially available
Turkey Unofficially available
Qatar Unofficially available
Saudi Arabia Unofficially available
Israel Unofficially available
Russia Unofficially available
India Unofficially available, Southern states geolocked
South Korea Geolocked, Sokcho is unofficially available
China Geoblocked, Northeast provinces only authentication locked
Sri Lanka Geoblocked
Maldives Geoblocked
Nepal Geoblocked
Bangladesh Geoblocked
North Korea Unofficially available but illegal


Until this point Niantic Labs haven’t made any firm comments about release dates for the mentioned countries.  However, John Hanke, CEO of Niantic Labs mentioned that the game is still in a rollout mode, so there might still be chance for these countries to get this game ‘officially’ someday. It’s gonna be a long wait for some poor kids in Sri Lanka until then.
