Financial Times reports that the company plans on letting advertisers create sponsored locations (but low chances of happening in Nepal)

Pokémon Go has already brought in millions of users and tons of money to Nintendo. Now, just a week after its release, developer Niantic is preparing for its next big move. Financial Times reports that the company plans on letting advertisers create sponsored locations to drive both foot traffic and revenue. But this will take much time to happen here in Nepal. The aim is to cash in on the flood of Go players hunting for pokémon out in the real world, while advertisers promote their brands within the game. And unfortunately, there is less for Nepali players to offer the multi-million dollar foreign companies and the concept of gaming is not much popular among advertisers and publishers of Nepal. So the sponsored location might not actually happen in Nepal completely. But who knows the future, lets hope for the best.
