So, Trainers, there are many reports that say that players around the globe are currently losing PokeBalls on every Raid encounter, many say they’ve lost Darkrai, some even Darkrai’s shiny form. That’s crazy because all T5 Raid shinies are a guaranteed catch.
It seems like everything started a few months ago, and Niantic and Pokemon Go know about the glitch and said they would fix it. Well, it has not been huge of a problem until a few days ago and the glitch kept getting worse and worse, causing Pokemon Go to be unplayable.
So what’s this glitch about? Well, some call it “PokeBall sticking,” others call it “PokeBall freezing” bug. As of this last update, nearly all Pokeball throws get “stuck” on the screen leading to difficulties and failures with the most basic element of this game. It has somehow expanded from just Raids to now every wild spawn, field research, in-person Raids, Remote Raids, etc. We all know that catching a Pokemon in Pokemon Go is the most important part of the game, but this glitch is stopping you from doing so.
Check out the reports from the TSR Pokemon Go community:
“Yep, it’s a glitch at a very important part of the game. I thought it was happening because I upgraded phones and something was weird between the two but this confirms it. It’s both annoying and costly, fix the glitch Niantic.”
“I’ve noticed it’s happening more and more, I’ve also had it just throw the Pokeball when I go to click on Ultraball or berries or even run.”
“Agreed. My gf lost a shiny Darkrai in a remote raid due to the glitch. All Niantic did when she emailed them was apologize and give her one free remote raid pass. 😐”
“Ok, I thought I was going nuts. This is the most frustrating bug I’ve experienced in this damn game. How do you mess up the core mechanic?”
Have you experienced something like this in the last few days? Did you lose a guaranteed catch? We would like to hear from you, so please leave us a comment below.
