Congratulations, Pokémon Go is now officially available in 26 new European countries

Congratulations, Pokémon Go is now officially available in 26 new European countries
Okay, we know that you're already either infatuated with or totally fed up with everything Pokemon Go-related. If you are of the first type, we've got a handy-dandy selection of content that will help you master the game in no time. If you, however, are disappointed with humanity chasing after imaginary monsters, we would suggest... installing a Pokemon filter for your browser of choice!

If you're living in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Greece, Greenland, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Sweden, or Switzerland, then you should know that the game has been officially launched in said countries. 


Well, you could play the game by sideloading the APK before that as well, but all those who were waiting for an official rollout can finally head out and catch all the Zubats, Pidgeys, and Rattatas you could possibly find.

imo, it's not games fault for people being so stupid of not being aware of their own surroundings. don't bore with your eyes in your smartphone all the time while strolling through your city or whatever, check BOTH sides of the road, LOOK at WHERE you're going, check if it's SAFE to go to that specific location for catching your dumass magikarp. are people this stupid nowadays to forget stuff you get crammed in your brains from early childhood or what.
