Is Pokémon Go down? How to Check Pokémon Server Status

Use the guide below to see where the problem might be!

Every so often, Pokémon Go seems to not let you log in to play, no matter what you do. This situation can be complicated because there is no official website to check the server status. Luckily, there are multiple third-party websites to choose from to check the status so you can see if the connection problem is on your end or the server end. We explain how to do this in the guide below.

Option One: Downdetector

Downdetector is a great website because it allows you to check the server status of nearly any multiplayer game. It operates primarily based on user input. This means that if there is a significant number of people reporting that there is an issue, you'll see the traffic spike and can rest easy and know that you're not alone.

To check the server status on Downdetector, use the following link: Downdetector - Pokémon Go Server Status. When you use this site, you'll also find that it provides other helpful information like previous reported activity and a live map of where the outages are being reported.

Option Two: MMOServerStatus

MMOServerStatus is a handle webpage that operates similarly to Downdetector. It provides basic information about the server status for MMOs from locations all over the world. This makes it incredibly convenient if you need just a quick "Yes" or "No" answer about whether the servers are down in your region. To check the server status using MMOServerStatus, use the following link: MMOServerStatus - Pokémon Go.

That's all you need to know about checking the server status for Pokémon Go. If at any point you can't login to the game, check those pages to get the most recent updates.
