Japanese Pokémon GO players are mocking the new Avatar customization options

In times like these, it is better to make fun of something, rather than drown in the memories of what once was. At least that is where I am standing, and so do Japanese Pokémon GO players.

Over the past few hours some changes happened in Pokémon GO, and it baffled some Trainers, especially the Japanese Trainers. These changes were done on Avatars and the customization options, and well, it is safe to say that the Japanese players do not appreciate them.

Many are making jokes about the new Avatar customization options, saying that they are hideous. If you ask me personally, I am not making any jokes about the newest Avatar customization options, but I don’t agree with Niantic’s changes at all.

Removing gender is not something that one game should be focusing on, especially a game filled with bugs and glitches. They should fix that before changing something that isn’t broken. They already started the fire with the Remote Raid changes, so why adding more fuel to the already lit fire?

I am not a Japanese translator, but if you want to understand the Japanese jokes, you can use Google Translate on the tweet.
