A nativeSoon, players on Android and iOS devices will be joining their friends on the Nintendo Switch to play one of the latest Pokemon games released.
However, Pokemon Unite players will not be able to play for hours of the day as the servers are down for maintenance.
The bad news is that no one will be able to access the basic features of the game during this period, including online play.
The plus side is that all of this is done to support the release date of Pokemon Unite Mobile.
Pokemon Unite is set to release on September 22nd, and will soon be playable on Android and iOS devices.

How long are POKEMON UNITE servers downtime?
The Pokemon Company has confirmed that Pokemon Unite maintenance will begin at 2 PM PDT, or 10 PM GMT, on Tuesday, September 21.
Pokemon Unite servers are set to be down for eight hours, which means the game won’t be playable again until 8am GMT, on September 22nd.
A message from The Pokémon Company reads: “Attention Trainers! Pokemon Unite will be in maintenance on September 21st from 2:00 PM to 12:00 AM PT.
“During this time, the game will not be playable while we are making adjustments and preparing for mobile launch. We appreciate your patience and understanding.”
