Niantic, the company behind Pokemon Go has a good problem.
Their game has been an instant hit, and they have been struggling to keep up the demands of its user base, which keeps multiplying.
Whereas they are doing a phased rollout across the globe, so they can build up up an infrastructure, the “viralilty” of the mobile app has made people adopt as fast as they can.
Yesterday morning, Pokemon Go was made available in 26 countries throughout Europe which resulted in outages and server problems.
Trainers! We have been working to fix the #PokemonGO server issues. Thank you for your patience. We’ll post an update soon.

We do not know what the status will be when they launch in Japan and Asia, given that the game is expected to be more popular there due to the game’s ability to chase Nintendo cartoons in real environments with a smartphone.
However, looks like the server problem was resolved.
