Pokémon GO Research Tab Bug is Back, Trainers not Able to Access Their Tasks

A while back, a good portion of the Pokémon GO community wasn’t able to finish their tasks, but nothing was fixed for days.

If you can remember, some months ago, we were all met up with an empty Research Tab, unable to access the tasks and check our progress on basically anything. Niantic kept quiet, and we were “banned” from our Research Tab. I even stopped playing the game for some time, because every time I would click on the button, it would show empty tabs, and just freeze the game.

Well, guess what? That pesky bug is back again. Whether we like it or not, we are yet again faced with the worst enemy of all, the bug called Empty Research Tab.

Luckily, this time around, there is a temporary fix where Trainers should spin a PokéStop before opening the Research Tab to get a new Research task. This should “unlock” the tab for a short amount of time.

Do you have any other fix? Please share it with us in the comments below.
