Pokémon Go is now available to download in the UK, making the country the fifth place worldwide where the wildly popular augmented reality game is officially available.
Following the German launch yesterday, it’s clear the UK addition means more European countries will get access to the hugely popular game this week. A large number of British players have already been playing the game, so the vast majority of gyms have already been secured by pokémon trainers.
If you did use a US iTunes account, you’ll need to delete the app and reinstall it from the UK App Store to continue receiving updates to the game. If you’ve waited for the official launch, now is the time to read up on exactly how to play Pokémon Go, and get those walking shoes ready because you’re going to need them.
