This page is a guide on fixing connection errors. Read on to learn the common causes of connection errors and what to do when they occur.
List of Contents
Network errors are errors that impede the connection between a person's device and the internet. In online games like Pokemon UNITE, a connection error means something is preventing the device from connecting to the game servers.
The most common cause of connection errors is a bad internet connection or no internet connection at all. In this case, restarting the internet terminal (or Wi-fi) fixes the connection error. If the problem persists, try checking for loose cables and attaching them properly.
If the internet is not the problem, the next plausible cause is the servers. Servers are computers that receive requests from clients (other computers/devices) which then send the appropriate response. When servers are down, the devices trying to request something from the servers can't receive a response. At this point, there is nothing people can do about it other than to wait for the servers to come back up.
Restart App or Device
Check Internet Network
Turn Off Airplane Mode
Check for Updates
Check for Server Status
A simple fix to a connection error is to restart either the app or the device itself. If there is something wrong with the app, reinstalling it usually does the trick.

Pokemon UNITE is an online game, which means it always has to be connected to the internet. Check first if the device has a connection to the internet. If there is a connection but is weak, try moving closer to the source.
Close or turn off applications or settings, like Airplane Mode, preventing the device from connecting to the internet.

Apps and devices are usually updated frequently. Updates can include new features for the app, fixes to bugs or glitches, and a boost to the app's or device's overall performance. Check if the device software and the app is updated to the latest version. In the case for Nintendo Switch, both the device software and the app/game version should be updated.

If the servers are down or are under maintenance, there is nothing people can do but wait for them to come back up. Always check for server status.
Although there is currently no official source to confirm the server status of Pokemon UNITE, a quick search will often yield other users who are having the same problem. When multiple users encounter connection issues, it's usually a problem on the server end.
There is a bug found in the beta version of Pokemon UNITE that occurs when starting a match. The bug prevents players from connecting to the game even after the timer goes to 0.
Players can reconnect, but in this case, it is best to restart Pokemon UNITE and join another match.
