Pokemon Home Error Code 800

If you have have been playing Pokemon Home, you may have encountered the frustrating ‘Pokemon Home Error 800 message‘. This error is nothing to worry about, and a common fault that many players experience. 

Pokemon Home Error 800 is usually a server-related fault and is caused by too many players trying to log into the server simultaneously. 

It has been reported that some users see a variety of error messages, for instance seeing a communication error, or an error code 504 on the Nintendo Switch. However, this is still caused by the same server problem and the message you see may vary depending on the device you are logging into.

How To Fix Pokemon Home Error 800

Because the error is usually server-related, the best thing to do is normally wait until the servers become less overloaded. However, there are a couple of things you can still try in the meantime: 

  1. Uninstall and reinstall – Sometimes uninstalling and reinstalling the game can help resolve this issue. 
  2. Contact Support – If the problem persists, you can contact the official Pokemon Support team here. 

Typically we recommend waiting at least a few hours before contacting support, as by then the servers have usually rebooted and are running successfully again.
