Hanoi (VNA) – The long awaited Pokemon Go was officially launched in Vietnam on August 6.

Android and iOS users can start downloading the Pokemon Go on the application store since the day’s morning.

Players will have full access to the game’s digital locations like the PokeStops and Gyms on a real-time Vietnam’sGPS map.

Before the sensational game officially comes to Vietnam, local Pokemon catchers as well as from other countries had to hack accounts from Australia and New Zealand where Pokemon Go was first released to play the game.

Yet Niantic Labs, the game’s distributor, soon blocked the IP hacking and left millions of global players growing restless in months to wait for the game’s official launch in their own countries.

23-year-old student Nguyen Lan Phuong said she managed to capture nine Pokemons soon after downloading the game to her smartphone.

“And I already had four rounds of walk around my residency complex on the Pokemon hunting,” she said.-VNA
