Pokemon Go is live in Southeast Asia. Niantic Labs announced that their popular mobile app was now available in 15 more countries last night, including the Philippines, Indonesia, Thailand, and Singapore. The announcement comes just a few days after Niantic rolled out the game in all of Central and South America.

The full list of countries is as follows: Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Taiwan, Papua New Guinea, Fiji, Solomon Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, and Palau.

Earlier this week, Pokemon Go cut off third party access to their servers, functionally shutting down hundreds of tracking apps and bot programs. According to Niantic, this led to an immense improvement in server performance, allowing the company to proceed with their plans to rollout the company in more countries.

Although Niantic has plans to add more features to Pokemon Go (including the now non-functional tracking system), the company has repeatedly said their top priority was completing the game's worldwide rollout. The game is still not available in all of Africa, China, India, and Russia.
