Filipinos who are keenly anticipating the launch of Pokemon Go can now stay updated on the upcoming release of the game in the Philippines and fully enjoy the game when it launches with the help of freenet app and PayMaya.
Now a certified worldwide phenomenon, Pokemon Go is a location-based mobile game developed by Niantic Labs in partnership with Nintendo. The Pokemon Go mobile game allows players to catch Pokemon or "pocket monsters" as if in real life using the GPS and camera of their smartphones, thanks to the augmented reality technology.
The game is currently available in some select countries around the world but has yet to be released in Asian region like the Philippines, including Japan where the Pokemon game originated.
Get Pokemon Go Updates with Freenet App
Those who want to stay updated on news about the upcoming release of the game in the Philippines may now download the Freenet app on Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. Through Freenet, Smart, TNT, and Sun subscribers will be able to read the latest news and social media feeds from the local Pokemon Go community for free with no data charges.
This is part of Freenet's mission to enable communities such as those who are eager to play Pokemon Go to stay active and participate in various activities and discussions through digital means.
This follows the successful livestreaming of President Rodrigo Duterte's inauguration and the Gilas Pilipinas FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament games through Freenet, which allowed Filipinos to be digitally present in these historic events even if they are not physically able to do so.
Purchase Pokecoins with PayMaya
Meanwhile, once the Pokemon Go app launches in the Philippines, players will be able to fully enjoy the game through in-app purchases with the help of PayMaya, the easiest way to pay online even without a credit card.
Players only have to download the PayMaya app on Google Play or App Store, load up their accounts with at least Php60 to cover the standard app store verification fee, and link their virtual Visa card to their app store accounts to be able to make in-app purchases for Pokecoins, the in-app currency used inside the Pokemon Go game.
What are Pokecoins?
With the help of Pokecoins, players will be able to purchase various items that will help them easily navigate the game, such as Pokeballs to catch Pokemon with, Pokemon eggs that allow them to hatch Pokemon, Potions to restore the health of their Pokemon, and Incense and Lure Modules that make it easy to attract wild Pokemon to their immediate vicinity.
How to load up PayMaya account?
In-app purchases are made more convenient with PayMaya as mobile game players can easily load up at any of the over 15,000 PayMaya reloading centers nationwide that include SM Malls Business Centers, Robinson's Department Stores, Bayad Centers, 7-11 stores with Cliqq kiosks, TouchPay kiosks, and Smart Padala Centers, on top of online banking via BDO.
Aside from the mobile app, PayMaya customers can also opt to have their own PayMaya physical prepaid card which can be used to in brick-and-mortar stores worldwide that accept Visa. A variant also comes with its own beep wallet, allowing users to ride MRT, LRT, some city buses and other beep-powered transportation for their daily commute, so they can easily explore the city in search of wild Pokemon.
Users who upgrade their PayMaya account can use their PayMaya for peer-to-peer money transfers and ATM withdrawals.
