Trainers, it’s time to take a little break as Pokemon GO plans a seven-hour downtime.

Niantic recently announced that Pokemon GO’s servers will be down for seven hours in early June. The announcement was shared on the game’s official Twitter account, stating that the global downtime will be from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. PDT.

Monday, June 1, players won’t be able to play the game since it will be undergoing some server maintenance. Like any other online game, Pokemon GO has new patches and updates that wouldn’t cause as much time or interruption. However, this hints at a big upcoming change, given that this is the first time the game has seen this long of a downtime.



The downtime isn’t planned for off-time hours in North America too, making the game unplayable for any trainers. Niantic didn’t specifically say what the maintenance is for, so there’s no telling what the company is planning. That said, players can look out for several events planned for Pokemon GO in June and July.

So while the game is down for 7 hours on the first day of June, players can take their time in doing other stuff. Maybe do some cleaning, or stream movies they’ve been wanting to see for a while, or maybe even read more about Pokemon GO?

Pokemon GO’s downtime starts in June 1st.
