UPDATE 6/7: As of today, Pokémon GO has released in North America and Europe. The game servers are experiencing high stress so many are struggling to log in, but the game is available for download and it can be played.
Pokémon GO entranced dedicated fans of the franchise and rekindled the interest of many who had turned away from the series. The world of Pokémon instilled a dream into millions across the world of traveling around the world to befriend, collect, and battle Pokémon to become the best trainer one could be. When Pokémon GO showed off a trailer during this year's Superbowl, fans were immediately reminded of why this franchise has captured the hearts of so many, their eyes now opened to the possibility of traveling the world and becoming as close to a Pokémon trainer as nature will allow.
Today marks just about a week after the beta testing period ended in North America, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand, which lasted for over a month in each region. The full app has been released in the latter three regions, Australia and New Zealand, and can be downloaded and played through either the iTunes app store or the Google Play store.
