Pokémon Go at the Olympic Games in RioThe participants of the Olympic Games have just arrived in Rio and found out there’s no possibility to continue playing Pokémon Go in Brazil. As sportsmen state, there are no pokémons in the Olympic village at all.

Actually this is due to the fact that the game is not available in the countries of South America.

As noted by mass media, the mayor of the city of Rio de Janeiro Eduardo Paes asked the Japanese company Nintendo, the developers of the game, to make the application available due to the Olympic Games. But they haven’t replied yet.

Previously it was reported that Japanese artistic gymnast Kōhei Uchimura had to pay $4,885 for using the net in roaming. He played the game staying in Rio de Janeiro.

Pokémon Go is a mobile game with augmented reality. The aim is to find and train pokémons for fighting against another pokemons.

What should you do to play the game in Brazil? If you’re a huge fan of the game and can’t imagine your life without Pokémon Go, there’s a proven way to continue playing it. You should install VPN. Using the service your IP address is changed as if you were not in Brazil.

Having installed the service you should check whether GPS operates. If everything is alright the city map appears and the location of the user is marked. You should find pokemons orienting the noise. If pokémon is nearby, you will hear whisper. You can face them at any unexpected places. If you manage to find him there’s an icon shining with different colors. Green color means it is easy to catch him, yellow means it is not so easy to catch, red means it is really difficult to do this.

By the way, you should realize that the game is energy-consuming, so the battery runs down suddenly.
