Pokemon GO, the highly popular augmented-reality Pokemon game developed by Niantic and The Pokemon Company for Android and iOS has been a hit in the United States, Australia and New Zealand after its launched. The popularity of the mobile game took developers by surprise, and the company decided to 'paused' the international rollout until its server issues are resolve.

Pokemon GO to launch in Europe and Asia very soon
The wait should be over real soon, according to reports from The Wall Street Journal (WSJ), "people familiar with plans for the game." Pokémon GO will launch in Europe and Asia "within a few days." However, there's no official statement on the time frame for the release.

Android users can sideload the application directly onto their devices while iPhone owners have been able to get their hands on the game by creating a new Apple ID that uses a US, Australian, or New Zealand region. Pokemon Fans' keenness to play is having a damaging effect, though, with various malware-infected clones of the game popping up on the web and infecting users' smartphones.

The Pokemon Go Twitter account tweeted about only downloading the application via Play Store or App Store.

Meanwhile, Nintendo itself is doing just fine from all the hype, with the company's stock price increase by 25 percent in the last couple of days.
