UPDATE Pokemon Go Loss of Spawns, TGR Leader Stops and Grunts Worldwide, Players are not Happy

Update: Trainers, right after Niantic and Pokemon Go announced the Wayfarer feature being available for Lvl40 players, players around the globe are reporting loss of spawns points. They also report about seeing less active Grunts.

There is a huge nerf in TGR Leader Stops, Grunts and spawn points in some areas and players are not happy about it and we would most likely see changes anytime soon.

Are you experiencing any changes in your area? Let us know in the comment section below.

Previous Story: Trainers, with the spawn change that recently occurred in Pokemon Go, reports are coming in that spawns points are diminished in both rural and urban areas.

Players around the globe who live in a rural and less crowded area are reporting a loss of spawn points and they are not happy with the recent changes. Some are saying that Niantic is pushing players from these areas away, while some still have hope and are waiting for the spawn points to get back to normal.

In addition, players who live in an urban/city area are also reporting of spawn loss, saying that they used to have more places with at least ten spawns and now the number has changed to one or two spawns.

Here are some of the reports:

My area is awful now. I work a position on nights that allows me to play (mostly shiny checking) – our atea went from 20-30 mon at any given time to averaging 3. The area around my home is even worse off… we had 5 or 6 spawn points reasonably close and I think there MIGHT be 2 now.

About 5 or 6 pokestops near my house lost all spawns. Even a nest in a small park is gone now. Every day I have less incentive to play this game. This is the most sad day in Pokemon go for me so far.

Pretty much every cluster in my city was gutted. Niantic Thanos snapped our spawns. Perfectly balanced. As all things should be.

Niantic responded with an email, saying that they are always looking for a new way to refresh gameplay and implementing change accordingly and that players from rural areas should stay tuned for further updates.

We know that’s not the answer you would want to hear, but we do think that Niantic is informed about the issue and they are giving their best to fix it…probably very soon.

More info to follow, so stay tuned.

Hey there, I'm Dejan! Let me take you through my life, where family, gaming, and CrossFit play prominent roles. Since day one, I've been surrounded by the love and support of my family. Growing up, every moment spent with my parents and siblings was filled with warmth and laughter, creating memories I hold dear. As a parent now, I've experienced a whole new level of love and responsibility. My two wonderful kids bring endless joy and a sense of purpose to my life. In the digital realm, I found my passion - gaming. Whether I'm conquering the world of Apex Legends or embarking on adventures in Pokemon Go, gaming fuels my sense of adventure and competition. Beyond the virtual world, I discovered the exhilaration of CrossFit. The challenging workouts, camaraderie with fellow fitness enthusiasts, and constant drive to push my limits have become an integral part of my life. Balancing family time, gaming, and CrossFit has been a journey of self-discovery. Each passion complements the other, bringing fulfillment and joy to my daily routine.


  1. Guess I live on the flip side of this coin.
    In my area, we had medium spawn. Absolutely NOTHING around my house.
    After the spawn change, I now get at least 3-5 spawn at my house and even more spawning around the village.
    Note that we are classified as Rural. We are 45 minutes out of the city.

  2. While not as bad as it is for rural areas, some urban areas have dropped off as well. All the parks in my town spawn only 1/4 of what they use too even without the number of stops changing. Now it actually seems even more like the game is pay to win because the only way I got spawns the last time I was at the park near my house was because a guy dropped three lures in a cluster of stops. This use to be fun, now it’s just a chore.

  3. I live VERY rurally and previously I’d still manage to see a minimum of at least 12 pokemon a day, I haven’t seen a pokemon for 2 days now, this is utter bs.
