As many of you know, we recently made some changes to Pokémon GO.
We have removed the ‘3-step’ display in order to improve upon the underlying
design. The original feature, although enjoyed by many, was also confusing and
did not meet our underlying product goals. We will keep you posted as we strive
to improve this feature.
We have limited access by third-party services which were interfering with our
ability to maintain quality of service for our users and to bring Pokémon GO to
users around the world. The large number of users has made the roll-out of
Pokémon GO around the world an... interesting… challenge. And we aren’t done
yet! Yes, Brazil, we want to bring the game to you (and many other countries
where it is not yet available).
We have read your posts and emails and we hear the frustration from folks in
places where we haven’t launched yet, and from those of you who miss these
features. We want you to know that we have been working crazy hours to keep the
game running as we continue to launch globally. If you haven’t heard us
Tweeting much it’s because we’ve been heads down working on the game. But we’ll
do our best going forward to keep you posted on what’s going on.
Be safe, be nice to your fellow trainers, and keep on exploring.
The Pokémon GO team
