The success of the game Pokemon Go makes sense, since it is like living the most connected with child hood anime series ‘Pokemon’. The game successfully first launched on July 6, 2016 in USA, New Zealand and Australia, after which the game’s success and demand started to affect the server. As per the increase in the demand of the game, Niatic CEO, John Hankethen paused the release of the game in other countries until they resolved the issue. Ever since, the game went big with the demand, it is still facing issues and Nintendo’s server is still trying to cope up.
Since the release, Pokemon Go is the first game to have more than 100 million people to download the game, which obviously gives ample amount of reason for the servers going down every now and then. The game is not limited to sitting and staring at your screen, but the excitement to walk around and search for virtual creatures called Pokemons makes the game more interesting, which is also why many people are appreciating and becoming a part of this game. Pokemon Go has received a mixed set of reviews, no wonder it is highly being liked for its concept of augmented reality but it is also highly being criticized by the huge game freak who face technical issue every now and then.
In UK, Pokemon Go’s server went down along with Pokemon Trainer Club both showing the status “offline”.Many times players receive the same status and makes them confused and frustrated whether the server is actually down or is it because the player is using 3G and not 4G in that particular area. So does that mean the player should find another spot to hunt Pokemons, or should wait for the servers to become online again?A website called The Pokemon Go Server Status page allows more than 100 million people who are playing the game to get updates about the game’s server, that how long the game went online, the time taken to login and what adds more to this website is it also gives status of Pokemon Trainer Clubs. Another status site checker called IsPokemonGoDownOrNot.comtells the players how often the server went down and which login method for the game works better. However, the website is limited to give updates for Europe and United States. Adding more to the list of Pokemon Go serverupdates, check the website Pokemon Go Page, not only it tells you if the server is down or not, but how often the users were able to get access to the game. In addition, instead of venting out on social media, users can report their outage on this site. Likewise, you can read the comments too!

Adding more to this, ever since the game launched in Japan, where the huge success is also predicted, the servers went down again and the Niantic had the numerous number of downloads of Pokemon Go game to blame. The users were so frustrated as they couldn’t get to play the game that they vent it out on the social media. Jyunichi Masuda, a Japanese creator, of the game apologized to people in Japan for the delay in the game and that they had to wait for the servers to go online for so long.
