Now Playing: Catching 11 New Pokemon in the Latest Pokemon GO Update

Some players have more recently stated that they can get online, although it appears others still cannot (or are unable to maintain a consistent connection). Niantic didn't provide a timeline for how quickly this may be resolved, but we'll report back as soon as it provides any additional information.

A limited-time Equinox event is currently underway and runs until October 2, providing players with various bonuses. Time is also running out to catch the current Legendary Pokemon.
