Is this is a sign na malapit na ang release ng Pokemon Go sa Philippines?

One of the biggest tel-cos in the Philippines is here to welcome Pokemon Go. According to the press release of Smart Communications, Smart & TNT subscribers who are using iOS and Android devices can enjoy 7 days free data access to Pokemon Go upon accessing the game and start playing without data charges for 7 straight days upon the launch of the game in the country.


Pokemon Go is a huge hit. It has added $11 billion to Nintendo’s value since its release five days ago. But its success has also crashed the games’ servers, and caused its makers to “pause” its global roll-out. That means it’s only available to gamers in the US, Australia, and New Zealand right now.

Developed by Niantic Labs in partnership with Nintendo affiliate The Pokemon Company, Pokemon GO has swept gamers since it was first launched in the USA, Australia and New Zealand on July 6. The game is now available in over 30 countries, including Japan, where the original Pokemon game and anime series originated.

 “Smart is one with the whole nation in waiting for Pokemon GO to finally go live in the Philippines, and we are very excited to welcome the game in our own big way,” said Kathy C. Carag, Smart Mobile Business Head.

“Smart subscribers nationwide can look forward to more special treats and promos that will allow them to make the most of their Pokemon GO experience.”

Drumming up the excitement among millions of Filipino fans, Smart joined the rally for #PHForPokemonGO on social media since the game was released in select markets last July 6. On Twitter alone, the anticipation and clamor for the game reached more than 14 million impressions on over the last couple of weeks for Smart and Pokemon Go.

Leveled-up Pokemon GO experience

Smart and TNT subscribers can easily level up their gameplay via convenient and secure Pokemon Go in-app purchases even without a credit card.


Recently Globe also released an statement that they'll be offering also a 7-day free access to Pokemon Go.

According to a report by PinoyScreenCast, Globe will offer Globe Switch users 7 days free access to the popular app when it launches in the country. Pokemon Go is expected to be available in the Philippines, but as of the moment no one, not even Globe, knows when it will officially arrive.

Hopefully these two tel-cos can provide the best data connection to their respective subscribers once the game is here in the Philippines.
