Pokemon Go officially launched yesterday on both Android and iOS devices, although if you’re a Pokemon trainer who has attempted to go out and “catch ‘em all”, then you’re probably well aware the game’s servers have been extremely spotty with many people reporting its servers are down.
Even though Pokemon Go launched nearly 24 hours ago, its servers are still getting hammered by potential Pokemon trainers. When you first launch the app, you’ll be able to log into the game with either your Google login or a Trainer Club login. Once you enter the information, you’ll then attempt to log into Pokemon Go’s servers, although we’re sure many of you are familiar with this step as this is where the game has been reporting its servers are down.
The message that pops up is “Our servers are experiencing issues. Please come back later.” Unfortunately, coming back later hasn’t helped much as many users are still reporting the Pokemon Go servers are down. Here are just some of the feedback on Twitter that we saw while working on this story:
