As Pokémon Go makes its way to Japan, it helps to be prepared for the eventual invasion of the world-conquering app into the Philippines. Freenet offers to keep Filipinos updated on the latest developments.

Freenet is aiming to enable communities such as those who are eagerly awaiting Pokémon Go to stay active and participate in various activities as well as discussions. The app is available for download in the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

The app was previously used to livestream President Rodrigo Duterte’s inauguration and the Gilas Pilipinas FIBA Olympic Qualifying Tournament games.


Freenet also allows Smart, TNT, and Sun subscribers to read the latest news and social media feeds from the local Pokémon Go community with no data charges.

Purchase Pokecoins with PayMaya

Once Pokemon Go is launched in the Philippines, players may accomplish in-game transactions with help from PayMaya, an easy way to pay online purchases without using a credit card.

The PlayMaya app can be downloaded from the Apple App and Google Play Store. Players will then need to load up their accounts with at least P60 to cover the standard app store verification fee and then link their virtual VISA card to the app store accounts in order to make in-app purchases.


PayMaya accounts can be topped-up from over 15,000 PayMaya reloading stations nationwide which includes SM Malls Business Centers, Department Stores, Bayad Centers, 7-Eleven stores with Cliqq kiosks, TouchPay Kiosks, and Smart Padala Centers, on top of online banking via BDO.

Aside from the mobile app, PayMaya customers can also opt to have their own PayMaya physical prepaid card which can be used in brick­and­mortar stores worldwide that accept Visa. A variant also comes with its own beep  wallet, allowing users to ride the MRT, LRT, some city buses and other beep-­powered transportation for their daily commute, so they can easily explore the city in search of wild Pokemon.


Users who upgrade their PayMaya account can use their PayMaya for peer­-to­-peer money transfers and ATM withdrawals.

More information about PayMaya and how users can get their own PayMaya card can be found here. Information about freenet can be found here. Alfred Bayle
