Nintendo have announced that they have taken Pokémon X and Pokémon Y’s Rating Battles temporarily offline, which will explain the error message that many of you may have been receiving in the past few days.

“We have temporarily disabled the ability to participate in Rating Battles in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y,” a statement shared on Pokémon Global Link reads.

“If you try to participate in Rating Battles in your game, you should receive the following error code: 004-3003. Please continue to check the Pokémon Global Link and the official Pokémon website for updates about when Rating Battles will be available again. We apologise for the inconvenience.”

There’s no indication as to when they’ll be available again, but we’ll keep our eyes open!
