Pokemon Go Servers Down For Maintenance
The popular Pokemon mobile game is offline for server maintenance today; here's how long the downtime will last.
Update: Pokemon Go is currently offline as developer Niantic performs server maintenance on the popular mobile game. The maintenance period is expected to run for approximately seven hours, from 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET to 6 PM PT / 9 PM ET. The game will be completely inaccessible during this time, so you won't be able to log in and play for much of the day, but you'll have plenty of June events to look forward to once the maintenance period concludes. The original story follows.
Pokemon Go will be unplayable for much of Monday, June 1. Developer Niantic has announced it is taking the game offline around the world that day while it performs extended server maintenance.
The maintenance period is expected to last for about seven hours, from 11 AM PT (2 PM ET) to 6 PM PT (9 PM ET). During that time, the game will be inaccessible, so you won't be able to log in and play until the maintenance concludes.

In the meantime, Niantic has a few events lined up for Pokemon Go. The Legendary Pokemon Terrakion is back in Raids until May 26, after which point it will be replaced by another Gen 5 Legendary: the debuting Reshiram. On top of that, the Sinnoh Throwback Challenge line is currently underway, giving players more chances to catch Pokemon from the Sinnoh region, including Shiny Glameow.
May's Community Day is just around the corner as well. The event takes place this Sunday, May 24, and features the Grass-type Pokemon Seedot. Niantic will also run a poll this weekend letting players vote for June and July's Community Day Pokemon.
