Can't Access playR - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

I am only giving one star to this website, not because it isn't a good site or because it is unenjoyable, but rather it is because they had a crash a while back, and I lost a few weeks worth of gameplay on Crystal, Yellow, and Gold. Very upset it hasn't been revolved yet

I know this may not work for all, but if you keep the webpage open you will be able to play your game without worrying about losing it EVEN when the site goes down. I've had my browser open for about 2 weeks and it's lasted through all the down times they've had. Even when I lose internet connection it still works. I know some people don't want to keep there computer on for extended periods of time but if you wanna play Pokemon without worry of losing your game......

I think this is a case of the Owner's/Devs who made the website probably wasn't expecting the growth of the game, and now they have to update the game. I also think its probably not on their priority list. Rip 160 pokedex silver.

It's not loading anything. I search for a game, it says it's not found. I even searched for the game i was JUST playing and it said that.

it would be nice if we could get some sort of update after waiting for so long. Instead we are kept in the dark never knowing how long it could take if it ever gets resolved. Then again, I am forever grateful for being given the opportunity to play pokemon again for free so I am not going to complain in a way that implies that owes me anything. However, as I said, it would be nice to be given updates.

Something weird must have happened last night with the site because I was playing pokemon crystal with no problems whatsoever and then all of a sudden I couldn't save anymore. Then, playR wouldn't even let me play any game. Weird.
