Pokémon Go has been the talk of the town since the game’s launch. The augmented reality game has already beat another popular game Candy Crush and is now available in 26 more countries. However, the game went down yesterday. Players from UK, Holland, and the US were complaining that the game wouldn’t let them log in.
The collective, named PoodleCorp has claimed responsibility over on Twitter for the reported attack. Shortly after 2PM, the players started to report problems with the game. Earlier this month, when the game launched in the US, there was a server crash due to overwhelming demand. This Thursday, Pokémon Go was launched in the UK.
“We have been working to fix the #PokemonGO server issues. Thank you for your patience,” said the maker of the game yesterday on Twitter.
Trainers! We have been working to fix the #PokemonGO server issues. Thank you for your patience. We'll post an update soon.

Since launch, the game has had periodic issues. Albeit it’s pretty absurd that frequent servers would fail on their own at the same time, there’s no strong proof of a refusal of service attack besides the alleged convicts’ say so.
However, by Saturday night many users reported on Twitter that they were able to access the game.
