But despite being a very popular game and being downloaded by millions of billions of people, the game has been facing some errors from a very long time. One of them has been the Error Code 6. Users said that the they successfully match up with an opponent but they are again kicked back to the battle menu and the Error 6 appears on their screen. A few others said that they recently updated the game but were unable to play at all because the Error 6 was appearing on screen. A user said that he was trying to battle in the battle field but his game froze at that moment and he was unable to continue. The issue can be considered an irritation because it has not been added in the Pokémon Go error code databases. Still, if you wish to fix it by yourself, you can try by following these steps –
- Uninstall the game and install it again.
- Turn off the internet connection for sometime and try to play the game.
- Clear the data of the game in your phone settings and see if the issue has been resolved.
