Pokémon Go is now live in 15 more countries in Asia, but not India or China

Pokémon GO continues its global expansion with the addition of 15 Asian and Oceanic countries where it’s now available, but India, China and Korea are still left out of the party.

The full list of new countries are: Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Solomon Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, and Palau.

The game has long been expected to launch in Asia, but it remains to be seen when it will finally hit India, China and Korea. While security issues and other woes related to the game’s reliance on Google Maps may explain Pokémon GO‘s absence in China and Korea, it remains unclear what’s holding it back in India.

In the case of India, where smartphone sales are growing in double-digital percent among its 1.2 billion population, it isn’t clear what is holding the launch up and when the game will go live.

As for those game improvements, the Pokémon GO update has not been well-received by players, sparking heavy criticism, but Niantic promised it was for the better.
