Pokemon Go Player BrandonTan91 Breaks the Game After Hitting the XP Cap, Now His Count is Negative

Pokemon GO players are known as the ones that break records, break the game and have all sorts of achievements. We know a lot of examples, and the one that we are going to talk about is one of them.

A video on YouTube appeared in which a user going by the name BrandonTan91, said that he broke Pokemon GO. The most popular mobile game is part of the 32-bit signed binary integer and has a maximum value of 2,147,483,647. The YouTube user brought up his screen in which he shows that his XP number is -2,147,082,853 which is quite strange. He then showed us what happens when he catches a Pokemon, and instead of gaining XP, the overall number goes down.

To demonstrate better, he then decided to spin a PokeStop (a first spin of the day) and before doing this, his total XP was -2,147,075,513. After spinning the PokeStop, the XP number went from -2,147,075,513 to -2,147,072,313.

Nobody knew what would happen if you reach the maximum number in a game, but we guess that now we know.
