Pokemon Go lagging or slow today? You aren't alone

From one of the favorite cartoon characters, to a game with a huge fandom. When it comes to popular mobile games, Pokemon Go is one name that players still love despite the fact that it’s been in business for more than three years – a time span in which many other big shots joined the league.

Something new or the other keeps coming up every now and then, credits to Niantic for frequent in-game events and other stuff. Take for example the upcoming World Tourism Day, which is likely to bring along new quests as per the latest leaks.
