In response to a disappointed user, Portugal has stated that will be making its way to the Windows Phone platform.

Pokémon fan and Windows Phone user Rafael Pinheiro shared his dismay with Microsoft Portugal and wrote, “The Pokémon GO is a phenomenon that is taking over the world, but users of Windows Phone. It is not acceptable this App not be available for Windows Phone.” He even stressed on dropping the platform in favour of a competitor as a result of dryness of good apps on the Windows Phone Store.

Pokémon GO has been a hot topic and users have been waiting for it eagerly. Now, Thanks to this response from Microsoft Portugal, it seems the game will be available on the  “soon”.

Translated version of the Response from Microsoft:

“Hi Rafael,

The application will be home soon, which refers to the windows phone store.

Thank you,

Team Microsoft Portugal”
