Pokemon Go certainly broke the internet this July 7, with the clamor of netizens hoping to try out the much-anticipated game. APK files spread out everywhere and made it possible for everyone especially Filipinos to try out the game. Despite the Philippines not included in the official list of countries authorized to play Pokemon Go, Filipinos managed to get at least 12 hours of catching Pokemons before Pokemon Go blocked their servers.
Our friend Jam Ancheta of www.jamonline.ph posted his encounter where he found out that he could no longer catch new Pokemons. After a few minutes of research, we found out that servers of the game were blocked to non-authorized countries.
No news yet if Pokemon Go plans to uplift the blocking, but perhaps the surge of new users affected their service and has made steps to properly serve Pokemon trainers. Hopefully Philippines will get full access soon as it looks like Pokemon Go is a hit for Filipinos.
