Pokémon GO has been released in Central and South America for iOS and Android. In addition, the Pokémon GO Facebook page has made statements about Battery Saver mode and players obtaining Legendary Pokémon.

Battery Saver mode was removed from iOS in the v0.31.0 update (named 1.1.0 on the App Store). The Pokémon GO Facebook page has clarified that it was removed due to being buggy, but Niantic expects to fix it soon and add it back to the game.
Some players managed to obtain Legendary Pokémon in the game. The Pokémon GO Facebook page has clarified that this was an error, and has stated that they have been removed from these players' games.
Additionally, players are now forced to update to the latest version in order to play the game. Previously, it was still possible to play the game without the update.
We are excited to share a few more details with you regarding Pokémon GO:
We have been working long hours to fix many other bugs and bring some exciting new features to Pokémon GO in the future. However, next up for us is the continued roll-out of Pokémon GO to more countries around the world.
As always, be safe, be nice to your fellow trainers, and keep on exploring.
