This Monday (1st), Pokémon GO will be offline for about seven hours. According to Niantic, the studio responsible for the mobile game, this “break” happens to perform a global maintenance of your servers.
Since launching in 2016, this is the first time that Niantic has carried out a review of servers with such a wide range of downtime. Despite the announcement, the developer did not provide details to players about what will be done during the period.
Unveiled a few weeks ago, Pokémon Go’s official Twitter again highlighted the pause for global maintenance on Monday. In this way, new information about the return of activities must be published in the social network account.
Remember, Trainers! Pokémon GO will be experiencing a seven-hour global downtime in a few hours from around 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. PDT on Monday, June 1. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience that this might cause.
