Pokémon GO began rolling out this week to IOS and Android smartphones, with North American, New Zealand and Australian trainers finally being able to get their hands on the highly anticipated mobile app.
The new app, that allows players to search around in the real world to capture Pokémon in augmented reality, took the top spot in the IOS charts just five hours after its release. It also looks like downloads aren’t all Pokémon GO is raking in, as of yesterday, the app was also the top grossing iPhone game which has surpassed the likes of Miitomo.
However, it hasn’t been without its problems, the app has had its moments with the severs being up one minute and down the next, but once these issues have ironed out it looks like the app will be set for even further success in the future.
Pokémon GO is yet to arrive in multiple countries worldwide, and fans are waiting on news from the Pokémon Company or Niantic on when it will be arriving in their region. Both companies have been very quiet in regards to the roll out, and haven’t yet spoken out about the server issues that players are facing. We will keep you posted with any new updates as they happen.
