The wait is over for twenty-six more Europeans countries, as Niantic continues to officially release Pokemon Go in Europe.

Eager Pokemon trainers in these countries can now join in with audiences in Australia, New Zealand, USA, Germany, and the UK to get out of their homes and explore their surroundings in the quest to capture as many Pokemon as possible.
However, the launch celebrations in more countries did not last long. The servers of Pokemon Go were down again, today, for users worldwide.
Trainers! We have been working to fix the #PokemonGO server issues. Thank you for your patience. We'll post an update soon.

Since the game’s release in the USA, the game’s inability to support the influx of players has been unsatisfactory and resulted in app crashes many times as well as locking out users from the game. As Niantic confidently began to release Pokemon Go in Germany, the UK and 26 more European countries, it was anticipated that the company has resolved the support issue for good. Although the servers in different parts of the world are gradually recovering, users should make peace with the fact that they might crash again at some point in time because of the sheer load on the system by millions of users at a time.
Luckily, the game is so popular users do not seem to care about the periodic downtimes.
@PokemonGoApp That's okay take your time :)
