Trainers, a bug is causing Pokemon to appear overlapped on the Map, and Niantic and Pokemon Go are looking into it.
The latest Pokemon Go update causes Pokemon to spawn on top of other Pokemon, and this happens when players use Incense. Niantic Support confirmed they are aware of this issue.
Niantic Support expects to fix the bug in the next update v0.277.0, so hopefully we will no longer see overlapping Pokemon on the map.
Thank you for sharing, Trainer! We are aware of the issue where Pokémon appear overlapped on the Map. This should be resolved in the next release (0.277.0). Let us know if you need more help! ^GK
