    I'm actually okay with this. Maybe this will teach people to stop walking into poles. Who knows?

    They don't need to do shit about the servers. They just need to log in and they explode like an atom bomb. They are down 99% percent of the time, the connection between the server and the player is way to weak etc. Its a mess

    Then again, who could've thought that they would be unleashing a global phenomenon taking over the world?

    Their servers are down so frequently that no one will notice it.

    From a hacking standpoint, why would they do it when the servers are almost always down anyway? I'd do it once they get the server hiccups fixed for maximum impact.

    PoodleCorp does it for fun. Pokémon Go is extremly popular at the moment with many companies making ads with the game, so it would be better to do it now, when alot of people are going to notice it. They plan on taking it down for 24 hours

    It won't really affect me, as I don't play Pokemon GO, but I hate people who DDoS random websites just for fun, seriously it only makes the users angry and causes problems for the company.
