Is this the end of the Go servers for good? ;) It's cool that it's finally released in Japan and hopefully they can start thinking about more impact updates to the game now that it's out in most of the more notable areas. I can believe that they've been holding off on big bug fixes/new content until the game had been pushed to every area they're aiming for so it'll be cool to see what happens next once this is finished.
I'm a little annoyed that they keep releasing it to more countries without fixing the many problems with the game, but I hope Japan has fun with it at least.
My best guess (or perhaps 'hope' is a better word) is that they're waiting for it to be fully distributed before releasing these big patches but I definitely agree with you that it's silly to be releasing the game still with so many issues going on.
GO holds the honor of being one of the few Pokemon games to not be released in Japan first, so it was odd seeing other countries get the game first but then again, Australia and NZ sorta had priority since they had the first field tests. Anyways, nice to hear the mother country of Pokemon can now join in the phenomenon.
Gone forever for personal reasons.
