Emotional rollercoaster for Hong Kong’s Pokemon Go fans, as gamers anticipate local release

For the past week, Pokemon Go has taken the world – and social media feeds – by storm. From stories about a user stumbling across a dead body while playing the game to articles on whether the game is the answer to America’s obesity problem, it seems that it is all everyone could talk about.

There’s just one question left: When is it going to be released in Hong Kong?

On Facebook page Pokemon: Go Hong Kong, local fans eagerly anticipating the game’s release are frequently posting updates about any news they hear about release dates. Another similar page with mostly English posts can be found here. They’ve even started a Telegram group to discuss their Pokemon Go experiences (or lack thereof).
