Pokemon GO Empty Research Tab, How to Fix the Bug

It pains me to still report on this as it is a bug present in the game for months and months, and nothing has been done about it, even after multiple Trainers reported on it. But, oh well, here we are, yet again.

You may have possibly been affected through these last months by the notorious “Empty Research tab” bug, but if you haven’t been, you are one of the lucky ones. I have been attacked by this problem numerous times, and now, it has caused me to miss the January 2024 Community Day Special Research Story named Of a Feather and to be honest, it has been quite frustrating.

Well, one Trainer has come forward with a possible fix, and I tried it, and it worked for me. The Trainer says that they have tried everything, from restarting the game to reinstalling it, but nothing fixed it. This struggle continued until they changed the language. By changing the language of the game, it prompts the user to restart the game, and voila, the Research tab is back once again. Try this, and report back to us whether it worked for you or not.

As we all suspect, it has something to do with Niantic forgetting to do something.

Please Niantic, fix this as soon as possible!
