The highly popular augmented reality game
Pokémon GO has today launched in 15 Asia-Pacific countries, including Thailand, Cambodia, Taiwan, and Malaysia among others. “Gamers in 15 new countries and regions across Asia and Oceania can now officially download Pokémon GO from the Android Play Store or the Apple App Store,” the Bangkok Post quoted Niantic, the game’s developer, as saying in a statement.

The 15 countries where Pokémon GO has launched include Brunei, Cambodia, Fiji, Federated States of Micronesia and Palau, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Philippines, Singapore, Solomon Islands, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam. The game uses GPS to track a player’s location and overlays “monsters” that can be hunted in that location on his mobile screen. The captured monsters can then be trained for battles.

In Thailand, there have been mixed responses from authorities on the news of its launch, the Bangkok Post said. The Information and Communication Technology Ministry (ICT) earlier said it was considering regulating game playing. However, the Tourism Ministry said it wanted to promote some sites by submitting them to the game’s developers in an attempt to attract larger groups of tourists.

Meanwhile, the Culture Ministry said players might be so absorbed in the game that they act inappropriately or inadvertently damage ancient places such as temples in their wake. It will send a letter to the ICT Ministry regarding the issue, the Bangkok Post noted.
