For all those experiencing issues related to the “Unable to get data from the server” error, here is a quick trick which is worth a try.

This has worked for some people in RARE cases so try it out first before trying something else, it might fix your problem 🙂

– Hit clear data
– Additional for Android users: Hit Force Stop

edit* for those of you who are banned. Let this be a lesson that leveling too high, too fast and or publicly flaunting it at gyms can and will result in perma bans. So re-level them to something not so obvious in your region.
