At least you don’t have to wonder if it’s just you anymore.
Since the launch of Pokémon Go a few weeks ago, an enormous wave of angst has plagued the community every time its players are faced with that infamous error screen. A handy new website has popped up to save you from hammering the refresh button!
Ispokemongodownornot.com will not only tell you if Niantic’s servers are operational, but logs the game’s functionality over the past 48 hours, that way you can tell if lures can be placed successfully. The site works by attempting an automated login every 30 seconds.
Niantic’s juggernaut app has continued to suffer from technical issues and has even dealt with an attack from a hacker group. Here’s hoping that the experience continues to smooth out as Niantic finds its footing.
