If you've ever dreamt of challenging gym buddies and hunting for Pokémon in the language of Bollywood and butter chicken, it's your time to shine because the Pokémon Co. and Niantic have launched the game's enchanting world in Hindi!
With over 800 Pokémons getting a Hindi name, the makers aim to increase user engagement in India. Niantic said it is starting with Hindi, but more languages are in line to join the Pokémon language club.
The Pokémon Co. is also giving in-app purchase bundles a price makeover to match the economics of the Indian market. There are more options to shop now, with a new web store with diverse payment choices.
The makers are spicing things up with brand-collab stops and gyms, plus over 5 million cool spots all around India added. Plus, it's making improvements with GPS, 5G, and computing. Niantic is also working on a wider gamut of extended reality (XR) and metaverse experiences, which could bring more interactivity within the game.
