Leaked photos have shown us that Malaysian telco Maxis and ride sharing service Grab have teamed up for the launch of Pokemon Go. While Niantic has not released any statements regarding if and when the hit augmented reality game will be released here, companies are jumping on the bandwagon to launch marketing campaigns related to the game. With the exception of Thailand, there’s been no word on the South East Asian servers.

I know it’s Ladies Night and we’re all ready to go out hunting while we wait in anticipation for Friday night, but while away your time by reading this. Also, I’d recommend a sangria.
