    For those wondering how I am able to play Pokémon GO! already. (UK)

    Pokémon GO! isn't officially released yet in the UK and is not yet available on the play store.

    However you can download the APK via a mirror download. The actual game files are available but just hasn't been unlocked for the UK on play store. Think of it like getting a console game before it's launch

    I'm not sure if I can post the link here but if anyone is interested just PM me, or go to google and type Pokémon GO APK download. It's version 0.29.0.

    N.B : This only works for android devices

    For iPhones:

    - Go to the App Store, Featured tab, scroll all the way down, click on your Apple ID, sign out and close the app.
    - Go to Settings, General, Language & Region, change region to United States (change lang to English US too); this will set your region to US
    - Go to the App Store, sign in with:*If signing in doesn't work*
    - Attempt to download any free app
    - You will be asked to create a new Apple ID, do that, and choose "None" for payment options
    - Search for Pokemon GO and download it
    - Once downloaded, sign out and revert back to your own region + sign back in with your own Apple ID
    - Profit.

    I gave up gaming, but I think I'll give this ago since the concept is novel and interesting.
