The hugely popular game has suffered major server problems, which has left some players unable to connect to the 'Pokemon GO' app - but Niantic has now posted a tweet revealing the issues have been fixed.

The technology firm explained: "The issues preventing Trainers from signing into Pokémon GO have been resolved.

"Thank you for your patience, Trainers! (sic)"

And as a means of making amends to their followers, Niantic have announced plans to extend the Pokemon Go Equinox event by 24 hours.

The company added: "The equinox celebration will be extended by 24 hours and will now end at 1pm PDT on Oct 3. (sic)"

Niantic fixed the issue after it received complaints from a large number of users.

The company previously announced: "We're investigating an issue which is preventing Trainers from logging in. Thank you for your patience as we look into this issue."

Meanwhile, 'Pokemon's CEO recently admitted he didn't think the Nintendo Switch would be a success.

The latest console from Nintendo brings handheld and home console gaming together and has been hugely popular since its release earlier this year.

But Tsunekazu Ishihara, the CEO of The Pokémon Company, didn't think the console would succeed because he couldn't see people "carrying around a game's console" in the world of mobile gaming.

He said: "I told Nintendo that Switch wouldn't be a success before it went on sale because I thought that, in the age of the smartphone, no one would carry around a game console.

"It's obvious I was wrong. I came to realise the key to a successful game is quite simple: software with absolute quality leads sales of hardware. Playing style can be flexible if the software is attractive enough."
