Pokemon Go Reaching India, Niantic Announces Reliance Jio Partnership

Niantic and Reliance Jio have partnered to launch Pokemon Go in India. The mobile game will be available beginning December 14. As a result of the partnership, thousands of Reliance stores and other locations will become PokeStops and Gyms. An exclusive Pokemon Go channel will also be added to JioChat, the company’s social messaging app.

It’s exciting to see Pokémon fans in India step out and explore their neighbourhoods in search of Pokémon and Jio’s disruptive high speed 4G LTE Network will be an excellent way to experience the game,
– John Hanke, CEO, Niantic

Even though an Indian launch of the game hadn’t previously occurred, some people did install it earlier this year.
