The Pokemon Go servers have been in and out of working order with good reason. The new app has skyrocketed to the top of the App Store's "free" app charts after being released late last night in the U.S..
Pokemon Go currently features the original 150 Pokemon roster and allows users to choose from Bulbasaur, Squirtle, and Charmander to start their journey as a Pokemaster. It is a direct reflection of the original Pokemon Red, Yellow, and Blue games for the handheld Nintendo Gameboy. The new app was developed by Nintendo and Niantic Labs, the company's second mobile game.
According to Forbes, Pokemon Go is up to #7 in top grossing apps, already. A quick jump to the top at launch is not extremely rare but it will be the coming weeks and months which determine just how successful Pokemon Go really is, as users will either lose interest and stick around and start to spend real money in the app.
Pokemon Go is available now on iOS and Android devices in the U.S..
