Pokémon GO servers down AGAIN as gamers around the world vent fury on social media
Pokémon GO servers appear to have crashed AGAIN as gamers from around the world went into a social media meltdown.
Hundreds of users have vented their fury on social media.
Earlier today, the game's official Twitter account posted: "The issues causing the server problems have been identified.
"Trainers should once again be able to search for Pokémon in the real world."
However many users on Twitter are being greeted with "failed login" messages.
And those who can access the app are also experiencing errors while exploring the game's world.
The reasons for the regular server outages are unclear at this time.
The augmented reality app only launched in the UK this week but it's already crashed for users across the globe for the past few hours, with users met with a message saying: "We are working to resolve the issue. Please try again soon!"
A group known as PoodleCorp claimed responsibility for the servers being down for an extended period of time yesterday.
Posting on social media at about the same time gamers first started to report problems, they said: "PokemonGo #Offline #PoodleCorp".
