Pokemon storage application Pokemon HOME is down after players tried to access the game for the Shiny Zeraora they were gifted after over one million Pokemon Sword & Shield players beat Zeraora in Max Raid Battles.
Players took to Twitter to complain that they can’t access the app, including Joe Merrick, the man behind popular Pokemon resource website Serebii. People are posting screenshots that show an error code of 500 when trying to log in. We just tried it ourselves and we got an error code of 800.
Seems people trying to get onto HOME for Zeraora have crashed the servers
