Timed and Special Research tabs not showing in Pokémon GO

Pokémon GO has gone from the greatest game without any bugs, to the game that is filled with multiple bugs. It is getting quite annoying, to be honest.

A Trainer has reported this bug on Reddit, where they explain that their Timed and Special Research tabs aren’t showing up on the screen, while the Field tab is doing good. The Trainer has said that they tested this on two devices, their Samsung Galaxy 23+ and an iPad, and as you can guess, it didn’t work on either device.

This has been happening to me too, where both of the tabs have been inaccessible for a few days now. I too own a Galaxy S20+, and whenever I try to open either tab, the game just freezes and there is nothing I can do, except to force close and restart the game.

As a bonus, the Trainer/Redditor mentioned that they have been getting zombie notifications on launch for old events. This hasn’t happened to me, yet.

Do you have this happening? What do you do to fix it?
