Okay, Trainers, let’s dive into this Routes issue in Pokémon GO that’s causing some confusion. Routes are important for upping your game, but man, they can be a real pain. Players wait months for approval, and then some see their Route got approved, used and then rejected. What’s up with that?
So here’s the scoop. One player went on the Silph Road subreddit to share their experience. They used their Route over 500 times and then, out of the blue, it got rejected. No reason was given. Another player had a similar experience; their Route had been used over 1,000 times before it got pulled.
Listen to this: On September 11, 2023, another player got a very vague answer from Niantic after their Route was rejected. The company basically said, “Thanks for asking, but we can’t give you a reason.” Below is the response.
“Thank you for contacting Pokemon Go Support.
Thank you for testing Route Creation! We’re not currently able to look into why your exact Route was rejected. That said, we are aware that trainers are interested in receiving this kind of feedback – we have let our team know that this is a feature you are interested in.
Have a good day. Please let us know if you need help with anything else.”
This isn’t new, by the way. One player had their Route rejected after a mind-blowing 91,776 trips! The reason? “Inaccessible Area.”
If you’re stuck and can’t find a Route, you might want to try Campfire. Campfire helps you locate Routes near you, and it does so with more efficiency than the game’s built-in menu. In the top left corner, beneath your player card, you’ll find a ‘Create Route’ button that will display these Routes directly on your map.
So, are you dealing with something similar? Let us know. We’re all trying to figure this Routes stuff out.
