While it might seem like a missed opportunity for Niantic, the developers of Pokémon Go, the company probably had no plans to expand the game into China in the first place, seeing as how the game relies on Google Maps, which is blocked in the country.

BTW is anyone actually still playing Pokemon Go? Presumably the fad has waned, winter cold weather etc.

Niantic is finally launching Pokémon Go in China.

I guess now that the rest of the world has lost interest and the craze is basically dead, Niantic must be desperate.
