Trainers, it seems like there is a bug that causes the Masterwork Research to reset, and some players claim that it did not happen just once, but three times.
The Pokemon Go Masterwork Research has four stages, each stage offering different tasks, rewards, and Pokemon encounters. The Masterwork Research Apex is designed to take a long time to complete, and by completing the tasks you’ll end up getting Apex Shadow Ho-Oh, and Apex Shadow Lugia encounters. This Research is available only for Pokemon Go Tour Johto ticket holders.
Now, according to some Pokemon Go players the Pokemon Go Masterwork Research Apex resets for no reason, and players must start with the tasks from the very beginning. That doesn’t sound fun at all, because there are some very hard tasks like Complete 000 Field Research tasks or Earn a heart with your buddy 30 days in a row, and just when you thought you’ve completed it, you must start all over again because of an annoying bug.
This has happened once, twice or three times for some players, and support can’t do anything about it. There is a theory about the bug, and it looks like you must interact with your buddy twice a day, once in the morning and once at night to not lose the progress.
According to yakusokuN8, “the running theory is that this research may be reseting based on how long it has been since you last did a buddy reaction, not if you’ve done one per calendar day. So, if you interacted at 6 a.m. on the 17th and interacted at 2 p.m. on the 18th, 30 hours have elapsed, which is more than a day, 24 hours. I would recommend interacting with your buddy TWICE a day, once in the morning and once at night, to see if that prevents any future resets.”
That’s not fun at all, and players are hoping to see it fixed very soon. Have you experienced this? Do you know how to solve this issue? We would like to hear from you, so please leave a comment below.
