For those in regions where this game has not released: don't fret. It's not working properly at the moment. Maybe by the time it is available for you, the experience will be working as it should, and you will have a better time with it. Right now it cuts in and out, breaks gym encounters, and even causes items to be wasted when communication with the server is dropped. It is fun while it works, but it works only sometimes. I hope Niantic is able to iron out the wrinkles before Go is a go elsewhere. The experience can be very frustrating for those that have it right now.
