VPNs and Gaming: Play Pokemon Go from wherever you are

It’s been the hottest game of the year, and the Pokemon Go phenomenon shows no signs of slowing down.

No matter where you live in the world, you’ll no doubt have seen groups of excited folks wandering around your city, hunting the sneakiest little Pokemon and sharing tips with other Poke-hunters they meet on the way.

But what if Pokemon Go isn’t launched yet in your country? Do you have to miss out on all the fun?

Not if you have SurfEasy VPN.

If you’re in Mexico, Brazil, Chile or any of the other countries still waiting for Pokemon Go to drop into their app stores—don’t worry. By turning on SurfEasy VPN and clicking on the drop-down Regions menu, you can borrow an IP address from a country that has released the Pokemon Go app in its app stores. By selecting this region, you’ll trick the web into thinking you’re based in that country, and you’ll be allowed to download the Pokemon app.

And then—well, the Pokemon world is your Cloyster!

Don’t miss out on all the Pokemon Go fun. Visit today to get started with SurfEasy VPN, and get hunting!
