It’s hard to go online and not see any news of Pokémon Go right now. But if you’re like me in South East Asia you’re probably enjoying a more passive involvement of the latest gaming craze right now. Unfortunately this won’t be remedied anytime soon. Sorry to break it to you trainers, but the global expansion of Pokémon Go has been delayed until its servers recover from player overload.
Thank you for your patience. We have been working to fix the server issues. We will continue rolling out #PokemonGO to new countries soon.

Players might have already seen an error page on the login screen alerting them that servers were momentarily down. While the game is already live in the USA, Australia and New Zealand, rollout to new countries is “paused until we’re comfortable,” John Hanke, CEO of the game’s studio Niantic informs us.
