How to play Pokemon Go in India?

Pokemon Go was recently released in select countries. However, gamers in other countries like India are eagerly waiting to test drive the new game. But they are not willing to wait till the arrival of the official release.

To play with Pokemon Go, you need access to a APK file, which you can download from third party sources. You can either download the APK file to your PC or directly from your smartphone. If you make use of PC, you need to copy the downloaded file to your smartphone’s internal storage. After that you need to install it by tapping the file name from the smartphone.

To work with Pokemon Go, you need a latest smartphone with minimum 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage. We installed the game but found that the game lags too much.

However, we managed to catch one Pokemon by showing the smartphone’s camera directly into it. We are unable to find an option to catch Pokemon after that. Moreover, the middle object slowly turns and if we slide it, the object never moves.

We are able to test Pokemon Go in Redmi Note 4G but unable to play on Le 1s Eco. We will try again and update this post when we are able to play the game.

The game throwed “GPS Signal Not Found” error message. Despite the error, we managed to play the game in Redmi Note.
