Pokemon GO Isn't Available in China so the Rip-off Tops the App Chart
Pokemon Go is a mobile smash hit that has been flooding your Facebooks news feed. But many Pokemon hunters in Asia are getting desperate waiting for the app to launch in their countries.
As we reported before, 3 Pokemon Go fans painted 151 Pokemon on wall, petitioning for Chinese server. There are millions of Pokemon fans in China showing their strong desires to play Pokemon Go. Therefore, the Chinese clone app “City Spirit Go” seems to be an ideal replacement for Pokemon Go, topping app charts in China.
Except augmented reality, City Spirit Go very much resembles Pokemon Go. Using location-based system, the f2p mobile game requires its user to move around to find cloned Pokemon. According to Tech in Asia, the game was developed by Xiaoyu Sun and was launched on March 24, a few weeks after Nintendo started testing a Beta Version of Pokemon Go. Just like Pokemon Go, the Chinese game features microtransactions ranging from around $0.99 to roughly $95.
We have no idea when Pokemon Go will be released worldwide, but on Monday the servers temporarily went live in Asia. This may indicate that it will be available in Asia soon.
