    Don't really get the game, is it better to raise CP to max before evolving or evolve the Pokemon first?

    It's a website for android apps (legal) - here's the link:
    http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/niantic...-apk-download/

    I had a quick Google but I couldn't find much on whether it will be compatible or not. Try and see?

    Reddit had a thread or something about this. Some good ideas in there. Hopefully Niantic will update to give more pokemon in rural areas.

    I can't even download it.

    I can on my iPad but I don't want to go about carrying that everywhere.

    I can't on my phone because I only have 250mb of data and I'd probably be able to use it for 10 minutes before the bill skyrockets.

    I can't on my smaller Samsung tablet because it's not showing up on the Google Play store.

    Quote as promised... Pokemon Go has now been officially released in the UK.

    If you've downloaded the APK file you should be able to install the app from the play store and log in as usual

    It doesn't use too much data actually. About 5-8mb per hour i'd say. I've been playing since Monday and haven't used much at all.
