Good luck to trainers trying to find PokeStops in the Falkland Islands! There are rumors that it’ll be coming out in Asia sometime soon, but this hasn’t been confirmed.

The servers for Pokemon Go did temporarily go live in Hong Kong, Taipei and Singapore on July 10. It didn’t last long, though. And intrepid players in Indonesia have been playing for weeks because the servers there are on, even though the game hasn’t officially been launched there.

Originally, the worldwide release was supposed to happen in the first week of July. After the first three countries, developer Niantic decided to hold off on releasing the game to any more until it could address its server issues.

Here’s what the company had to say about the situation on its Twitter account:

The game’s available in your area and you still can’t play?

No matter where you’re located, you still may not be able to play. According to Downdetector, at the time of this writing, 51 percent of people reporting to the site have connection problems and 48 percent have log-in problems.

Some have reported that if you try logging in with Google instead of the Trainer’s Club you’ll get in. Beware, though. Logging in with a different method may create a new game.

Update, August 4: Many countries in South and Central America were added. This article has been updated several times as more countries and regions have been added to the game.
