Pokémon Go is finally coming to India. Niantic's hit AR title will be available for download in the country on Android and iOS starting Wednesday, December 14. Niantic partnered with Reliance Jio to bring the game to the country, with thousands of Reliance Digital turning into PokéStops.
From Niantic's CEO John Hanke:
Jio's messaging app JioChat will get an exclusive Pokémon Go channel that lets players collaborate and engage with the community. Reliance Jio president Mathew Oommen talked about the partnership, and the potential for further content deals in the future:
With Jio extending its free usage, you'll be able to play the game and not incur any data fees until March 31, 2017.
