Pokemon Go Players Still Getting Warnings Despite Niantic Acknowledging the False Strikes

Trainers, Niantic and Pokemon Go announced that they will be reverting strikes for some players who incorrectly received warnings, but they are still banning/giving players warnings for no reason.

Just yesterday. Niantic Support announced on their Twitter account that they’ve acknowledged the issue when some players received false warnings and they will be fixing/removing the strikes from these accounts. However, not one day passed and many players got a First Strike, 7-day warning.

What’s the first strike or the 7-day warning?

  • You may not be able to encounter rare Pokemon in the wild.
  • This strike lasts for 7 days and after this period the gameplay experience will be fully restored.

They said that the reverting strikes will be done for Trainers automatically. If you try to reach out (those who have this issue), you will receive an automatic generic response that will not help you.

It seems like they reversed the false warnings, but they didn’t fix the issue causing them.

What are your thoughts about this? Have you ever received a false strike/warning in Pokemon Go?

  1. Not trying to cheer or rejoice for other’s misfortune, but in a way, now many others know exactly how I felt around early 2020.

    At the time, my sole problem was using a Xiaomi phone to play the game. That hit me with repeated 30 day ban. Ever since I switched to other brand, I no longer received the false strike.

    And your wording about how the customer service would respond? That’s also old school. Unlike other Pok√©mon mobile games, heck, other mobile titles, Niantic doesn’t give a damn about our situation. They just kept saying they had top notch cheat detection system and not try to consider any urgent plea for help. Just kept dodging and accusing without providing explanation or proof of the accusation.

    My friend quit the game due to the same issue. I already walked out at the time, but another friend managed to convince me to play again after last year’s GO Fest. I wonder how many players will walk out this time around.
