Sign In with Ingress Sign In with Pokémon GO
That also bothered me a little, but installing it with APK is a personal choice and at your own risk, so there is no problem.
However, unlike Ingress, where you can play with portals displayed as long as there is a signal, in Pokémon GO, you can launch it in a country where it hasn't been launched and Pokéstops and gyms will be displayed and Pokémon will appear? That's the question.
Maybe things are different now, but I used to go to South Korea in November 2016 when the VIA NOIR Seoul anomaly took place.
At the time, Korea was one of the countries where Pokémon GO had not been launched.
I was able to launch Pokémon GO, but I don't remember seeing any maps, Pokémon, or anything else.
Since then, I have never traveled to a country where Pokémon GO has not been launched, so I do not know what the current situation is.
Therefore, would I be able to meet his request? I thought so, so I decided that I should gather information first and asked him.
I'm doing my best. 6 nominations so far 1st one is rejected bec i was not choosing a proper place as it was my first time other still in review.
Thanks for your help
It started in 2016 which the date l start playing it till now. Very difficult to know the no. Of players but there are many l presume as some sites suggest players to be from my area. I think the Japanese wiki mean (officialy not released) as it is not supported yet
Thank you my friend
Actually apt store and play store are available in here since ever (we are rich countries that is why). Me my self downloaded it and my family from both official stores for ios and android. So the application is legal in here not from 3rd party sites. I join evrry event with the paid passports at the game shop. I maintained my requirements as others in here by bying balls and else from the pok shop since 2016 till now so all these matters are the same. I joind ingres game to know about this game more at 2016. That is why its difficult to understand why we still outside the consideration of niantic.
Thanks a lot for your consideration and positive spirit for this country trainers
From this, I gather that pokestops and gyms are active and the game is playable in Iraq.
An effort to gather bonus reviewers has been started up, along with a chat. Suggested locale is Al Suwaira, southeast of Bagdad.
As this is near virgin territory, I think that many nominations will be mosques and other high-grade things. So, if your rating needs a boost, this might be a good way of doing it.
I'd do it, if I had had my BL free.
I replied this comment but l can find it now despite pritty sure l did. I nomonated 6 points so far the 1st one was rejected and 5 are waiting. I'm doing my best in here but still I'm new and making hard to make better. And try to keep daily nomination as l promised in here. Thanks a lot for your kind concern I'm sure it will help
PGo started in 2016 in Iraq that's the date l joined it. It's very difficult to know how many players but for sure everyone know what it is pokemon go game especially students and gamers. In some sites whom try to give suggestions to PGO players to be friends on the game provide larg no. Of accounts usually. But as you know a game with out local resources is very difficult to be maintained. As for me lm maintaining by gifts from friends, PG shop and traveling outside my country. Mostly others do the same. Japanese wiki means officially not released in Iraq otherwise we play it since 2016 and available legally in aptstore and play market for both devices systems.
Thanks for having time to comment
Pokémon go is available legally in lraq sice 2016 that's the time i started playing it. It's available legally in aptstore and play store since then. Yes Wikipedias did not include lraq in its list just bec still it not officially released or supported and that is why we don't have pokstops or gyms yet. So we don't need 3rd party to download it from the start. Me myself logged in this forum using my PGO login method. Being like other trainers from Africa is a point I'm not sure about.
My dear friend.
Pgo launched in lraq since 2016 that is the time l start. Playing it. It's available in the official stores since then. The maps are full and l never noticed any problem with it till now so I am really surprised that some think that we are in Iraq like (Blank). The pok shop is fully functional since. 2016 that is how l. Maintained my progress mainly by bying from. Pok shop stuff like balls incubators and so on. I am greatful to. Your question and answer happily and sure you with this experience can feel our suffering.
Thank you for your support
No worries if your first one is rejected, as you are still learning what makes a good nomination. Are you reviewing on Wayfarer to get upgrades to apply against your other nominations?
Awesome I was just looking to move my bonus location, so now I will help reviews here!
Thanks a lot l appreciate it.
So far had to reject quite some, but also approved some very nice submissions!
Four new poi popped up yesterday. If you want to join the chat, head to the Global reviewer FB page and ask Jamie. :)
I am not using FB for those things, if there is a group on discord/telegram or something like it I would join.
I have been advocating using Discord instead for all the places we try to help, but most locals hardly know what it is. It's hard convincing peope to change systems. But I'll keep pogomap updated, if you want to see how it goes.
For progress intel can also be used, but thanks. I approved some more over time. But also got quite some random submissions I had to reject unfortunately.
The last days were very interesting and active. A very generous group of trainers whom initiated (Helping Iraq) group learned us a lot about being better trainers, how to submit POI, how to gather our efforts to start a real community of local trainers and much more.. And gess what? They guided me how to be a reviewer yesterday, and with them advices and support I'm a reviewer now since a very exciting last night. I was able to review 70 spots of my country yesterday hope this will help in supporting the game trainers in Iraq. In very few days everything is changing beside l knew a very keen newv ppl whom payed attention to our complaints through a simple post of mine . I'm speechless for every one helped us even with a few words advice.
No one know how much I am happy today as the very 1st pokstop appeared in my city. Yes if we work in the right place with the right people every thing could be possible. Since my post in here i got very few positive comments but only one of them made the real difference. And guess what? It happened! All people helped in this campaign (Help Iraq) never lost anything but got new friends and plenty of appreciations. Thanks to every single positive word, encouraging comment and lovely people who care about the others.
A comment can make a difference.

Thought I should share some info on how this has gone. Since december 2021, more than 400 new POI has been created in Iraq, in several cities, like in Bagdad, Najaf, Erbil, Sulaymaniyya, Al Hilla, Masraa, Karbala, Dihok and Zakho.
There are now over 600 POI in total in Iraq, and new stops seem to popping up also outside of the bonus reviewer areas.
There is also a facebook group, at https://www.facebook.com/groups/218409043762236 (although private).
In the days before you could nominate a pokestop. I loaded quite a few pictures of interesting things to Google maps. Mostly in Sami Abdulrahman Park, Erbil. The main cluster of gyms and pokestops in Erbil was in and around Shanadar Park. But then there was nothing in the larger park
There are loads of spots in that park that could be used, this is a picture I uploaded to Google maps
Yes, that park is one of the hotspots now. :)
Good Going 👍
Looking at the discussion here, I thought that I could make many friends, so I tried it for a year and pointed the pin. I am very confused because there is no street view. Anyone have a post?
