The Pokemon Go servers were being hammered even 24 hours after its official launch, and today, it appears things haven’t gotten much better as we’re still hearing reports the mobile game is having some serious growing pains.
Many users are still complaining the Pokemon Go servers have been spotty since its release, and with the weekend officially underway, we have a feeling things will only get worse before they get better. In fact, the Pokemon Go app has ceased its rollout to additional countries in order to work on the current server issues:
Thank you for your patience. We have been working to fix the server issues. We will continue rolling out #PokemonGO to new countries soon.— Pokémon GO (@PokemonGoApp) July 8, 2016
A number of us on staff haven’t had many issues connecting to the Pokemon Go servers, although that doesn’t necessarily mean there isn’t an ongoing problem. As you can see, many Pokemon trainers are voicing their frustration on Twitter:
The Pokemon Go servers are a joke...— Glomato (@Squad7Reject) July 9, 2016
Im starting to think that Niantic & The Pokemon Company have already discontinued Pokemon Go & wont release it in Canada or fix the servers.— Asxd (@5ecretbuddy) July 9, 2016
when your whole family is playing pokemon go but your servers are experiencing issues so you know you're not suited for this life— smol cow (@cynthiamoo_) July 9, 2016
If you're one of the many waiting for the servers for Pokemon Go to stabilize, at least you can enjoy some of the more interesting places Pokemon trainers have attempted to catch their Pocket Monsters. Just don't accidentally stumble onto a dead body when the servers do come back up.
Daniel Perez posted a new article, Pokemon Go servers still down as global rollout is put on hold
Yup. Nothing in Canada yet. Which is very annoying since we are a small population and companies usually soft launch here to test their servers.
or maybe it's just too cold here in the winters for the pokemons to survive here.
