Pokemon Go is the mobile game taking the world by storm. Busy gamers are seen Pokemon hunting everywhere. However, today disappointed Indian gamers started putting up complains on social media site Twitter about the game not working properly on their devices. 
According to one of the tweets, the game is opening without any data, and is not showing any map, gym or pokestop. But not all gamers from India are facing the trouble, as one comment read, "It's not blocked, working fine in Mumbai and Delhi region. Kolkata and South not working". 

Another user accused developers Niantic for deliberately stopping India from playing the game. Some suggested the server might be down. There has been no reply from Niantic's side yet.

Niantic has earned huge profits from Pokemon GO. Today the much awaited game has finally launched in Japan.
