Soon after the release, many players said that the game took a long time to start up or could not be downloaded at all. Prior to this issue, Pokemon Go encountered a server issue that led the company to postpone the game's release in the UK and the Netherlands.

Pokemon Go is currently officially available in 34 countries including Australia, New Zealand, Germany, UK, Spain, Italy and Portugal. Recent reports suggested that it would be available in Southeast Asia as well, but a representative from developer Niantic Labs said it did not yet plan to release the game outside of the aforementioned countries.
