Our favorite game-boy game Pokemon from Nintendo is now on our phones and it has taken the world by storm. Following a worldwide release, the game already is driving people “insane”. Stories have been making rounds of teenagers being shot at will playing the game, accidents have also happened while drivers enjoyed the game and so forth.

Sadly for us in Uganda, the game is not available in the official store despite the so called worldwide release. But fortunately if your reading this, your are in luck since there is a work around for android users.

There is an extremely easy way to run the game on your device while you wait for the official African release to be announced. Unfortunately, iOS users will have to wait a while longer as an Apple-friendly version has yet been made available.

To run it in your region simply download the APK File online and transfer it to your device – you can simply email the APK link to yourself and download it onto your phone.
After downloading the APK, go to setting and allow installation of third party apps by following the steps below.

Go to Settings on your phone and switch to the “general” tab, if needed.

  1. Tap on the “Security” option.
  2. Tick the checkbox next to the “Unknown Sources” option.
  3. Confirm the warning message by tapping on “OK”.

Once that is done, please proceed to install the game on your phone and join in on the fun
