Update: No need to wait on the update, folks! We were a bit slow on the trigger finger with this one, and it seems like the servers are back up and running. Sorry for the scare, and thanks to everyone who pointed out that we needed to up our speed stats!

Original article: Niantic's popular augmented reality creature catcher, Pokémon GO, is down for many people all across the world. Fans of the hugely popular mobile game have taken to Twitter to express their frustrations and concerns as they can't access the game.

Some have noted that they are stuck on the loading screen, while others have reported that they can't accept remote raids — which means some people in certain parts of the world can't access Raid Hour, with today's catch being Ruby & Sapphire legendary Kyogre.

Both @PokemonGoApp and @NianticHelp have yet to respond to these reported problems. Kotaku has reached out to Niantic for a response, and we'll be sure to update you as soon as the servers are live again.
