The reason why the game arrives late in South Korea can be attributed to the fact how Pokemon GO relies on Google Maps for location related data. Since the country is always in a cold feud with North Korea therefore security concerns have been a factor for the delay. Niantic had to make do with publicly available data to shape the game, hence leading to such a long delay.

Now that the game has arrived though, users can finally dive deep into the world of Pokemon and augmented reality. Those who are new to the game will be pleased to learn that you can jump into action free of cost. But if you are looking to expand certain aspects of the game quickly then you have in-app purchases at your disposal too. Just make sure you do not burn through your wallet in sheer excitement.
