We spent years waiting for this one-of-a-kind Pokemon title that encourages us to explore the outdoors, interact with others, and improve our health. Unfortunately, some fans of this successful franchise are disappointed to learn that Pokemon Go is not compatible with their devices.
Users of Intel-based smartphones manufactured by ASUS, such as the Zenfone 2 and the Padfone, reportedly found it impossible to download the game's application on Google Play.
Although it took them about two months to respond to this issue, ASUS has recently shared a guide on how to enable the installation of Pokemon GO on their devices.
