Pokémon Go downtime: What time servers go offline for June 1st maintenance explained

How long will Pokémon Go be offline for?

The servers for Pokémon Go will be globally offline on Monday, 1st June 2020 for a total of seven hours.

During this downtime you'll be unable to play Pokémon Go in its entirety, so make sure you complete any important tasks, such as climbing the Go Battle League or collecting daily bonuses, before the game goes offline.

While the Go Battle League has experienced multiple downtime periods since it's release for maintenance, this is the first time Pokémon Go has been taken completely offline since the Gym rework back in 2017.

Pokémon Go downtime: What time do servers go offline for June 1st maintenance in your region?

Pokémon Go will be offline globally on Monday, June 1st for all players globally, meaning the downtime will either go down in the evening or daytime hours depending on where you live.

Below you'll find when the Pokémon Go servers will go offline and when the game occurs for various regions around the world:

  • UK: 7pm to 2am (BST)
  • Europe: 8pm to 3am (CEST)
  • East Coast US: 2pm to 9pm (EDT)
  • West Coast US: 11am to 6pm (PDT)
  • Australia: 4am to 11am on Tuesday, June 2nd (AEST)

Assuming everything runs on time, you'll be able to continue playing Pokémon Go as usual once this period of downtime is over - just be patient.

The Season of Go has arrived! The Bug Out! event has brought us the release of Grubbin, Charjabug and Vikavolt in Pokémon Go, while Mega Scizor makes its debut appearance in Mega Raids! You can use Daily Adventure Incense for the chance of encountering Galarian Articuno, Galarian Zapdos and Galarian Moltres. There's also a new special research quest - A Mysterious Incense. While Go Fest 2022 may be behind us, there are still three special research quests you might be working on - Pokémon Go Fest 2022, Rhi's Arrival and A Radiant World. This season has also seen the lowering of the requirement for Candy XL and introduced the first Ultra Beast, Nihilego, along with new Prime Gaming rewards every fortnight.

Why is Pokémon Go going offline for maintenance?

The only reason Niantic has given for taking Pokémon Go offline is “server maintenance.”

"We apologize in advance for any inconvenience that this might cause. This will have no impact on your account," Niantic added.

While this brings little insight on exactly what Niantic are doing, it could be, as Eurogamer suggests, that Niantic are transferring the game onto new servers, which they couldn't do if the game was live.
