Pokemon Go players might be experiencing some disruptions during their gameplay, but fear not, this will be due to server maintenance from November 3, 2021, until November 6, 2021. During this period, you will be able to play the game, but you may experience some disruptions.
The Pokemon Go server maintenance is planned from November 3, 2021, to November 6, 2021, and during this time, you may experience some disruptions. To be honest, that’s a long time for server maintenance, and players are not happy about that. So why, you might ask? Well, this maintenance coincides with Darkrai Raid Hour and the Festival of Lights event.
Every Wednesday in November 2021, a Raid Hour event will occur from 6 PM to 7 PM local time. The Mythical Pokemon Darkrai will appear more often in Raids on November 3, 2021. This is not looking too good, because they will start with the server maintenance on the same day as the Raid Hour event, and disruptions in Raids could be disappointing. Also, the Festival of Lights will start on November 5, 2021, and players won’t be able to enjoy the event as they should due to server maintenance.
That said, we hope they fix the bugs ASAP, announce a Darkrai Raid Hour make-up event and be kind enough to surprise the Pokemon Go community with a free Box and cool items.
If there are any disruptions like Niantic announced, it would be a shame because players will not be able to enjoy the events as they should. They might miss out on great bonuses, new Pokemon Dedenne, and possibly Shiny forms.
As for the server maintenance, Niantic did not specify what they will be doing, but we assume that they will fix some bugs and/or add new things, keeping in mind that Team Go Rocket will appear in the game again.
Trainers, we’ll be performing server maintenance from November 3 to November 6, 2021 PDT. You’ll still be able to play @pokemongoapp, but you may experience some disruptions. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We’ll post updates as maintenance begins and ends.

Do you think that they should move the server maintenance to later days, after the Darkrai Raid Hour and the Festival of Lights events?
