[May 13: Niantic confirms visual bug] Pokemon Go down and not loading: network error, server status and other info we have

This story is being continuously updated….new updates are being added at the bottom…..

Looks like Pokemon Go is acting glitchy at the moment. We are seeing reports that say the game’s servers are down currently. Here are some reports from social media:


It’s difficult to say how widespread the issue is, but we’re keeping a close watch at the situation, and will update the story as and when we have more info on the matter. Until then, share your Pokemon Go experience with us in the comments section below.


Update 1 (April 13)

Adventure Sync feature for Pokemon Go that was introduced by Niantic last year made it possible for players to track or record the traveled kilometers even when the game is offline. How? Simply through integration with fitness apps like Apple Health and Google Fit.

But for almost a week now, Pokemon Go players have been chiming that the feature isn’t working or updating for them.


Similar reports can be seen posted across online discussion platform Reddit.


What has now come to our notice is that Nintendo has intentionally disabled this feature due to the recently reported server issues.

Not only that, Nintendo is also working on resolving a Lucky Friends-related glitch wherein reportedly only one person gets to be a lucky friend after interaction.

Hoping both the issues get resolved soon.

Update 2 (May 13)

Niantic has confirmed a visual glitch wherein users are unable to use the stardust despite having enough quantity.
