Pokemon Go Players Spend Half Time Trying to Log in

It wouldn’t be a great day if something did not happen with Pokemon Go. It does not matter what it is: bugs, faulty releases, missing Gyms or PokeStops, the list goes on and on.

The latest (or is it?) bug/glitch that has been bothering Trainers for many months is the login problem. Many Trainers report that they have problems entering the game because they are stuck for nearly 30 minutes at the loading screen (the catchy one with the cute background pictures) with no solution at the end.

Most affected users are Android users. While there are several Trainers who use iPhones reported having this problem, it looks like the most dominant Trainers are the ones who have Android devices. At least that is how it looks on TheSilphRoad’s Reddit page.

Some say that deleting data, factory resets, restarting/deleting and reinstalling the game does the trick, but some are desperate for a fix. Niantic does not seem to care. They respond only with the typical questions: “Did you restart the game?”; “Did you delete and reinstall the game?”. The most bizarre suggestion from them is “get a new phone”. Like this will solve all problems with Pokemon Go.

Here are several comments from some Trainers:

“The game has become almost unplayable for me recently. My game constantly gets stuck loading, then I close it and try again and get the same issue. Sometimes once the progress bar is full it will send me to a black screen, which then forces me to close the game and try again.”

“Niantic does not care about quality control”

This just adds to the fire that Pokemon Go is not what it used to be back in the past.
