I need not explain the allure and power of the new Pokemon GO game to you all, if you aren't already playing, just google the new stories surrounding it.
My family and I are enjoying playing it. It gets people out and walking to play the game and it is face to face social, since those wanderers you encounter are playing as well and you can help each other play by pointing out the Pokestops and Gyms and telling where you found your pokemon and finding out where they found theirs.
I am compiling some useful links in this post for my reference and yours.
Firstly, are the servers working:
Down Detector for Pokemon Go in the US.
Is Pokemon Go up or not, for the different regions.
More to come here later.
