Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Filipino Pokémon trainers won't have to worry about their data while playing Pokémon GO.

Telecommunication companies Smart and Globe are offering free Pokémon GO data for seven days.

Smart subscribers are treated with seven days of free Pokémon GO all-day data with no registration needed until August 12. This includes all postpaid, prepaid, Bro, Infinity, and TNT subscribers.

Data charges will still apply for the app download and registration.

Globe Telecom, meanwhile, is giving Android users 300 MB-worth of free Pokémon GO data for one week. All a Globe subscriber must do is download "Globe Switch" on Google Play.

Once the download is complete, click the free download of Pokémon GO under the Hot Deals category.

Globe Switch is not yet available on the Apple App Store.

The augmented reality app finally launched in the Philippines on Saturday for iOS and Android users.
