With the smash game Pokemon Go now in the Philippines, Filipino trainers can now go on the streets and around their neighborhoods in search of elusive pocket monsters and claim ownership of Pokemon gyms from fellow trainers.
The best part is you can level up your Pokemon Go experience with a little help from your digital friends at Voyager Innovations and PayMaya Philippines. They?re bringing the tandem of freenet and PayMaya apps to help you on your quest to become a digital Pokemon master ? the same way Misty and Brock accompanied Ash and Pikachu on their way to greatness. Here?s how:
Download the Pokemon Go app for free via freenet
To jumpstart your Pokemon Go journey, download the app for free and without data charges from freenet. Android users who are Smart subscribers (available soon to Sun and TNT subscribers) only have to open their freenet apps and download the app from there, and they don?t even have to have a data plan to do so.
Get news from the local Pokemon Go community
Once you have the Pokemon Go app, check out the dedicated page on the freenet app to get updates from the local Pokemon Go community. Read news about Pokemon Go, check out what the latest official updates are, and connect with fellow Pokemon enthusiasts. The best part is you can do all of these things on your phone for free and without data charges.
Through freenet, users will also be able to access Facebook Lite, Twitter, and Instagram for free, so they can be updated and share their Pokemon Go experience with friends anytime, anywhere. Aside from these, users also get to access dozens of apps and websites without data charges, all thanks to freenet.
Play Pokemon Go without data charges with Smart
Speaking of free, you can also play Pokemon Go without data charges. Smart has already announced that all of its subscribers can play the game for free for 7 days upon launch.
Buy Pokecoins easily with PayMaya
Once you?ve gotten a feel of the game and caught your fill of Pikachu, Rattata, Staryu and Zubat, it?s time for some serious Pokemon Go gameplay with the help of Pokecoins.
Players only have to download the PayMaya app on the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store, load up their accounts with at least P60 to cover the standard app store verification fee, and link their virtual Visa card to their app store accounts to be able to make in-app purchases for Pokecoins.
Pokecoins allow players to purchase various items that will help them navigate and get the most out of the game, such as Pokeballs to catch Pokemon with, Lucky Eggs that allow them to ?hatch? various types of Pokemon, Potions to restore the health of their Pokemon, and Incense and Lure Modules that make it easy to attract wild Pokemon to their immediate vicinity.
In-app purchases are made convenient with PayMaya as mobile game players can load up at any of the over 15,000 PayMaya reloading stations nationwide that include SM Malls Business Centers, Robinson?s Department Stores, Bayad Centers, 7-Eleven stores with Cliqq kiosks, TouchPay Kiosks, and Smart Padala Centers, on top of online banking via BDO.
