Pokémon Go has been banned in Iran due to ‘security concerns’. This decision was made by the High Council of Virtual Spaces.

Iran had hoped that Niantic Labs would work with them to make the game safe in their eyes, but apparently that never happened. There are rumors the decision was based on a religious ruling, but nothing has been confirmed.
