“We are delighted to partner with Jio to launch Pokémon GO in India,” said John Hanke, Chief Executive Officer and founder of Niantic. “It’s exciting to see Pokémon fans in India step out and explore their neighborhoods in search of Pokémon and Jio’s disruptive high-speed 4G LTE Network will be an excellent way to experience the game.”

The games will also have access to the exclusive Pokémon Go Channel on Jio’s social messaging app. This channel will help gamers to collaborate and be part of an exciting community of players to share tips and clues.

Reliance Jio customers have already gotten the free access to Jio services till 31st March 2017. So, they have not to worry about the data consumption and they are free to enjoy this game around them.
