Philippine Pokemon would-be trainers, heads-up! When Pokemon GO launches in the Philippines, Smart will give you 7 days of FREE data access so you can catch ’em all!
This offer will be available to both iOS and Android users for Smart and TNT subscribers.
Pokemon GO is taking the world by storm
A location-based augmented reality mobile game, Pokemon GO lets players assume the role of a trainer who discovers and catches Pokemon or “pocket monsters” as if in real life using the GPS and camera of their smartphones.
Players level up their Pokemon and battle other trainers to gain Pokécoins that can be spent on in-game items. Developed by Niantic Labs in partnership with Nintendo affiliate The Pokemon Company, Pokemon GO has swept gamers since it was first launched in the USA, Australia and New Zealand on July 6.
The game is now available in over 30 countries, including Japan, where the original Pokemon game and anime series originated.
Drumming up the excitement among millions of Filipino fans, Smart joined the rally for #PHForPokemonGO on social media since the game was released in select markets last July 6. On Twitter alone, anticipation over the game reached more than 14 million impressions over the last couple of weeks for Smart and Pokemon Go.
Kathy Carag, Smart Mobile Business Head, says that “Smart subscribers nationwide can look forward to more special treats and promos that will allow them to make the most of their Pokemon GO experience.”
