Pokémon Sword and Shield servers might go down at times, and they can also be under maintenance. Here’s how you can check their status.
The launch of Pokémon Sword and Shield has been a huge success. Many people are loving the game around the globe. Players around the world are joining the game and enjoying their experience in the Galar region. Due to the massive popularity of the game, many players are experiencing problems with the online servers in the game. They are facing issues like “The online services are under maintenance,” and other messages like that when attempting to connect online.
These problems could be happening due to various reasons. One of the main reasons is that the official Nintendo servers can go down for maintenance in order to handle the things at the back end and to provide and modify the experience for every player. Nintendo usually doesn’t provide any detail about these issues.
Nintendo has thankfully created a support page for Pokémon Sword and Shield fans in order to check the current status of the servers and other helpful information. You can get an idea of the server status from this official page accessible from here.
This webpage is divided into two sections. The first section is to check the online status of the service. Through this section, you can check out that if the servers are down or facing any issues. You can also check the previous information on the server status. If you faced any problem in the past you can also check that whether it was the server’ss issue or the issue was on your side. It provides the date and time about the servers outage but it doesn’t give us the details about it.
The second section of this support page is for maintenance information. It is helpful for future dates. Through this section, you can know if there are any schedule fixes for the upcoming server maintenance. It only shows the scheduled maintenance timeline in advance for a week or so. You can also check about the previous maintenance information and how much time it took to complete the maintenance. Through this you can have an idea about how much it’s gonna take for Pokémon Sword and Shield servers to get back online again in case you are facing some problem.
This webpage will help you any time whenever you are playing the game. You can check whether the servers are working properly or not so that you can play the game without any problems.
