Taobao Offers Pokemon Go Essentials



Pokemon Go, the mobile game released in selected countries in July 2016, has become a global phenomenon with more than 130 million downloads. Although analysts say China will likely never get Pokemon Go for various reasons (including ties with Google and heavy reliance on GPS), popular online retailer Taobao is advertising Pokemon Go “essentials” on its front page. It calls the sale an “overseas special” with the hope of tapping into players abroad with access to the game (Hong Kong in particular).


The products in the “Pokemon Go” collection include portable battery chargers, cell phone cases, charging cables, backpacks, and hats.
