Review of this game

For some of us it is very bad news that only few devices are eligible for this game. But we do not need to worry as in future we may enjoy a better game on a good device. As of now only few people, less than 50 have installed and the reviews are somewhat negative. Some of them are facing issues with Pikachu and other playmoji's. As we have more no of installations we will get good and detailed reviews. Stay tuned for those.

Note: The above reviews are not mine as I do not have a supported device. I have taken them from Play Store.
