How to Play It if Pokémon GO Is Not Yet Available in Your Country?

Players who can't download from the Play Store can try their luck by the following method without having to wait for the game's staggered launch to hit your region finally:

Side-loading the app from APK Mirror, or specifically, bypass Apple's location settings so you can download the game anywhere worldwide.

iPhone users for example, can make the phone believe that you are in a country where the game is already available.

Step 1. Launch "App Store" and sign out of your own account;

Step 2. Enter "Settings" from home screen and go like Settings > General > Language & Region. Select the US, Australia or any country that has the official release of the game.

Step 3. Go to App Store and search for "Pokémon GO" and hit it for downloading. It will be a slow process. Please wait in patience.

Note: If it says that the item does not exisit in your current store, click Change Store, or choose to download any free app and select "Create New Apple ID".

Step 4. Launch your Mail application to verify the email address you have just used for your new US account.

Step 5. Go back to the Pokémon GO listing on the App Store, tap get, install and login to your new US iTunes account.

However, unsupported regions may not have any Pokémon or Pokestops. Scilicet, you may only download the game but not play it. So, you may have to get a VPN or other virtual network service.
