    European trainers will have to wait before officially getting Pokemon GO on their phones. It looks like the game's popularity was too much to handle for the seevers. Niantic's CEO, John Hanke, declared : “We thought the game would be popular, but it obviously struck a nerve.”
    Well, "struck a nerve" might be quite the understatement knowing that Big N stocks got a massive 24.52% raise, the biggest since the NES era.

    A number of players experienced a lot of connection problems due to that, which is the main reason Niantic wants to solve this problem before the international release.

    I'm not surprised, lol. Cosidering how borked the servers are currently, a worldwide launch would probably just make it far worse than it already is.

    "Struck a nerve"? Struck a chord maybe but the nerve phrase is usually for things which make people angry, often unexpectedly so or with unexpected potency.

    I shall have to look into this stock business though. Given this is probably the first step towards pokemon mmo though (and that would be a money printer) it is probably not too surprising.

    Flame ketchum is about to receive his very first Pokémon from Professor Oak. At the age of ten, boys and girls like flame can get the license to become Pokémon trainers. On the day he is supposed to get his first Pokémon,

    But.

    fucking servers.
