In January, Pokémon Go was finally released in South Korea… 6 months after its launch date. Nonetheless, we were thrilled to get it, negative degree weather be damned. I suppose the silver lining would be that we only had to wait a month till the release of Gen 2.
So far, Seoul’s congested atmosphere has made for a very interesting gaming experience. You don’t have to wander very far before you’re totally engulfed in a sea of Pokémon, PokéStops and gyms. If your lucky, you can even set yourself up at a cafe situated between 2~3 PokéStops while you attempt to get work done.
Needless to say Pokémon Go has taken Korea by storm. Everywhere you look, people are swiping at their phones or sharing their latest catch with friends. Stores are cashing in on Pokémon collaborations, be it clothing, accessories or even cosmetics. There doesn’t seem to be much of a cure for PokéFever as of yet.
