Check your internet connection
The “communication error” message in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp can be various, but all of them seem to be connection issues as you can’t play the game offline. Before you dig into some complicated fixes, check your internet connection first.
Switch WiFi into data, then relaunch the game and wait. If it’s working normally, there’s something wrong with your network.
You can fix the network in two ways:
- Reboot your router
- Reset your router
Reboot your router is an easy and usable method. Hold the power button for 5 seconds and your router should be set. Or you can reset your router by holding the reset button for 5 seconds, then follow the instructions on the back of the router to reset your network.
If it’s not working, please contact your local ISP service and ask for help.
Well, it’s possible that Nintendo’s servers can’t handle the number of players and causes the error. You can go to Nintendo’s social channels for more information. If the problem is on their ends, we’re expecting Nintendo to fix this problem as soon as possible.
But if it’s neither your network nor Nintendo’s server, you can move to other fixes.
Reboot your device
I believe most of you will exit from the game and force quit it, then start the game once more. It works for a few occasions. If it’s not working, simply restart your device would be the next step. Reboot your device will shut down all background apps and give the system a fresh start. The app will have more resources and get a boost in performance which may solve the issue.
If that still doesn’t help, you can try the following steps to clear and reacquire data for the game:
- On the title screen, select the menu icon in the upper-left corner.
- Select “Data Restore” to reacquire data.
Update the app
When restarting the game or your device is not a fix, check the new updates. Updating the app would be a fix for most issues. Some players had reported their app is now working after downloading the latest version of the app. You can update it through the Appstore/ Google Play store.
