When the first wave of tweets and FB posts about Pokémon GO went around, I thought it was just hype.

But after this #paasa tweet and hundreds of other tweets from my Pinoy friends on Pokemon Go PH release, wala pa rin. Still waiting after 10 days and as of writing nada/nil/zero 🙁

So I decided that I need to update Menardconnect.com and I will share my free six info Pokemon GO Philippines in the tradition of my free six video and other free six series.

1. Pokemon Go official updates is available at Niantic Labs Official Pokemon website. Official updates on releases are published in the link below

last 3 releases in HK, Canada and other 26 countries.

2. Check Official Apple Store and Official Google Android Store. For iOS, go to

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pokemon-go/id1094591345?mt=8

and click open in iTunes.
Chances are it’s available in US and other Apple Stores and you need to change your store.

3. If still not available in Philippines do NOT force installation via changing store. Some of my friends have tried this trick and confirmed that developers have disabled some GPS/geo ip settings, so you won’t find any Pokémon in Philippines GPS locations.

4. Thinking about Pokemon Go Cheats and Tricks? Think again!!! The devs have learned much from their previous Geo-loc game Ingress and I am sure they will be on top of the cheats/”gaming the game” issue. So I suggest you don’t try OK?

5. For Android enthusiasts and iOS jail breakers, don’t risk with those Pokemon Go APK and ios app packages and be part of statistics. But if you can reverse engineer the file and know its detailed behavior then go ahead be my guest (and eat malware for breakfast too) 😀

6. An interesting site for the Pokemon Go Server Status that I recommend

So that completes my free six info for Pokemon GO Philippines. Will try to post soon when its finally officially released in the Philippines. Hope you enjoyed my Pokemon GO Philippines post here at menardconnect.com
