We love Pokemon GO so much that we broke it.
Thousands of people are unable to access the game in Australia and at the moment it doesn’t look like it is going to be a quick fix.
Thank you for your patience. We have been working to fix the server issues. We will continue rolling out #PokemonGO to new countries soon.

It is really frustrating for people in a great game to wake up to this news, especially us as we were so close to getting our next win in our lunch break.
To ensure all Trainers can experience #PokemonGo, we continue to add new resources to accommodate everyone. Thank you for your patience.

Here is what you need to do to get Pokemon GO working;
Disable the GPS/Location settings in your phone (head into the settings)
Once you are in the game (even if your avatar is in the middle of the ocean) reactivate the GPS/Location…
And reports are circulating that it works.. It certainly did for us!
Just don’t blame us if it doesn’t.. we are just trying to help!
