Pokedemasters in the United Kingdom are reporting a surge in Pokemon Go sightings as the game continues to grow in popularity in the country.
Pokemon Go has become so popular in the UK that it has taken the world by storm, with thousands of people now playing in the game daily.
According to PokeDex, which keeps track of Pokemon and other virtual creatures, more than 3.3 million Pokemon were tracked in the week ending April 14.
That’s up from 1.7 million during the same period last year, and it’s expected to continue climbing in the coming months.
Pokemon Go has been downloaded over a billion times in the U.K., with more than 2 million people playing on average per day, according to PokeData, a company that tracks Pokemon online.
The company says there were 1.4 million sightings of Pokemon Go last week in the area around London, and 3,500 were recorded on the Underground in the city.
PokemonGo sightings also increased in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
“It’s not all good news, though,” Pokemon Go fan Adam Ritchie wrote on Reddit.
“People are getting out and about more and more, not necessarily in the right places.
It also seems to be affecting the game a bit more than the others.”
He continued: “It’s still pretty wild and scary out there, but it’s good to see that people are still getting out there and playing.
I can’t wait to see what happens when it hits the UK!”
In a statement to the BBC, Pokemon Go creator Niantic said it was aware of the problem and is “working to fix it quickly.”
The company also told The Verge that it was working on a new update that will improve the game’s tracking system, but didn’t provide further details.
PokeDex says there have been about 3.8 million reported Pokemon sightings worldwide, with an estimated total of over 3.7 billion captured Pokemon.
The company says it is aware of a spike in sightings in the past few days, and that Pokemon Go players are often getting into trouble with the game.
