Filipinos are ready and patiently waiting for the release of Pokemon GO here in the Philippines. But you can stay updated and get the most out the experience when it releases with Freenet and PayMaya.
Pokemon GO is a location-based augmented reality game developed by Niantic Labs, the ones responsible for Ingress. The game is currently available in Australia, New Zealand, USA, UK, and select European countries. No news yet on when it will release in any Asian country as of this writing (edit: The game just released in Japan a few minutes ago).
Get updates and news on Pokemon Go via freenet
With the success of President Rodrigo Duterte’s inauguration and the Gilas Pilipinas FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament live streams, you can now also stay updated on news about the upcoming Pokemon GO mobile game. Smart, TNT, and Sun subscribers will be able to read the latest news and social media feeds from the local Pokemon GO Community for free with no data charges. Download the freenet app by Voyager Innovations Inc. on Google Play Store and/or on the Apple App Store.
Purchase Pokecoins with PayMaya
Pokemon Go is a free-to-play mobile game. And like any other free-to-play game, you can buy in-app purchases to have an edge. These purchases can be paid using a credit card, but you can also use PayMaya if you don’t have one (you can read about my PayMaya experience here). You can use PayMaya to buy Pokecoins once the game is released in the Philippines. Pokecoins lets you purchase various items in-game such as Pokeballs, Pokemon Eggs, Incense, and Lure Modules.
You can download PayMaya on Google Play Store (http://bit.ly/24m1FBh) and/or the Apple App Store (http://apple.co/1KYuX26), just load up your account with at least Php60 to cover the standard app store verification fee. You can top-up your account at SM Malls Business Centers, Robinsons Department Stores, Bayad Centers, 7-Eleven Stores with Cliqq Kiosks, TouchPay Kiosks, Smart Padala Centers, or through BDO Mobile Banking.
