The Pokemon Go game launched last month and quickly nozzle to the top of the app store charts on iOS and Android, breaking records along the way. Pokémon Go has been sitting on top ever since, as the game has expanded into Asia and Europe.
Rio, however, is not one of the cities where Pokémon Go has been released, and Niantic Labs, the developers behind the game, hasn’t announced a schedule or timetable for when it will be.
Surely, people are flipping out because they won’t be able to throwing a Poké Balls in the city.
Whatever will people do when they’re wandering the streets or waiting for a foreign national anthem to finish playing?
That sounds, the horror!
Want to know the worst thing about the Olympic village? No @PokemonGoApp. Otherwise, it's incredible.
