It has been said that if you do not like anything in a game, you should report it. That is how it also is in Pokemon Go, but with Routes, and we all “love” it.
Niantic has tweeted that if Trainers do not like some Routes, or find them misleading, they can freely report it. Now, put an emphasis on “IF”. Keeping in mind that there is a problem currently with the approval of Routes, Trainers basically do not have any Routes available. The question is, how many Trainers can report the only one existing Route at the moment?
Here is what Niantic tweeted a few days ago in response to a Trainer:
Hi Kidami. If you find a Route that is in violation of the Niantic Terms of Service or Player Guidelines, you can submit a report. From the Route details screen, scroll down to the bottom & tap on Report Route. More info here: https://t.co/8qsEZdHcVB We hope this helps! ^MK

When other Trainers read this tweet, they had several reactions. Some of them had hilarious comments, while others suggested that this is okay from Niantic to say. Here are some parts of the reactions:
“And this is where we’d report the bad Routes..
If there WERE ANY”
“Snitches get stitches.”
“Bold of them to assume we can find one”
“Do Niantic actually believe there are any Routes to report? There isn’t a single one in my area”
These comments are among our favorites. How and why does Niantic expect us to report routes if they take so much time with approving them in the first place?
What do you think about this? Have you seen any routes in your area? Did you report any of them?
