A game like Pokémon Go lives or dies by one thing: the ability to connect to its servers. Players are required to always be connected to the internet to head out on their real life Pokémon adventures. No internet, no go.
But trainers whose phones are online still haven’t been able to get into the game since it rolled out stateside last night. That’s because it’s been plagued with unknown server issues and authentication errors. We’ve tried logging into our Pokémon Trainer Club accounts only to be told that Pokémon Go can’t recognize them. Worse, we’ve faced the mysterious error message about the problematic servers time and again, where we’re told to “come back later” instead.
Needless to say, people aren’t happy. Something the internet is great at, though.
