Pokemon go is now available in the United States, Australia and some parts of Asia. With the expanded release today, Pokemon Go is now available in Canada and there are more countries to come. In fact according to Niantic, some of the larger markets like Japan are on the radar.

Once Niantic Labs can expand their server capacity, they will be one step closer to a global user base. Many players have gone the extra mile to download a third party application in a vain attempt to get Pokemon Go before the game is available in their area. Some players who have been waiting have found other ways to load Pokemon Go on to their phones, with some less than ideal results.

If you happen to live in one of the countries waiting for this game, never download from an untrusted source. Always download and install applications that have been properly vetted by the App Store or Google Play. Have any questions now that Pokemon Go is now available in Canada?
