Pokemon Go Says Bonjour To Pokemon Trainers in France
Pokemon Go app Download available in France

The Pokemon Go app finally launches in France.

Niantic announced the release of Pokemon Go in France on Sunday. Pokemon fans can now officially download the Pokemon Go app in France and start to catch Pokemon at the Eiffel Tower, Louvre and at the other beautiful places in France. 

The European roll-out of Pokemon Go began on July 13 in the UK and Germany. On July 15, Pokemon Go launched in Spain, Portugal and Italy. A day later Niantic added 26 more European countries, but not France. Niantic has delayed the launch of Pokemon Go in France out of respect to the victims of the terrible terror attack in Nice on July 14.

The California startup has launched on Friday in Japan, which is the first Asian market the viral game is available. Japan is the home country of Pokemon and the anticipation of Pokemon Go was accordingly.

The Pokemon Go servers have suffered several outages since the release of Pokemon Go on July 6. Now the servers are in their best shape so far. The Pokemon Go Server Status at jooas reports a 99.85% up time on the past day. The services have been online over the past 16 hours without a problem.

Now that Niantic apparently solved the scalability problem, the company can focus on improving the user experience and fix bugs. Additionally the company has to prepare against announced hacker attacks and the rampant growth of Pokemon Go bots. These automatic clients are harvesting Pokeballs, and catch Pokemon without leaving the house. Geeks can stay home again and avoid the forced workout the Pokemon Go app is requiring from trainers.
