Also, from this date the Battle Stadium will no longer update with a ranked season and results will not appear in Pokémon Home.
While online competitions will cease, friendly competitions can still be run.
All other online features will remain accessible, such as online battles and Pokémon trading.
The news comes just ahead of the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, the new mainline adventures in the series.
The Pokémon Company has just announced its latest addition: the electric frog Bellibolt.
