Pokemon Go & GO Battle League bugs & issues [Cont. updated]

Pokemon Go is among the most played augmented reality games where new events keep on taking place.

While developers keep on enhancing their software, several issues and bugs always linger around.

It is only natural for games like Pokemon Go to have some issues and bugs as long as they are being taken care of.

Also, Niantic is known for acknowledging and addressing widespread issues and bugs in time.

However, it is still not feasible to take care of each and every issue in the game which is why the developers keep track of them.

As per the Pokemon Go Known Issues page, there are still several issues under investigation whereas most of them have already been addressed.

On the other hand, the GO Battle League Known Issues page has a different story altogether as most issues are still being investigated.

It is, however, good to see that Niantic is working to resolve the Pokemon Go and GO Battle League known issues.

That being said, it may still be difficult to keep tabs on which bugs and issues have been acknowledged, fixed, or are under investigation.

So, we will be tracking the status of all existing Pokemon Go and GO Battle League issues and bugs to save players’ time.

We will regularly update the tracker below as and when new details regarding Pokemon Go bugs and issues come to light so keep a weather eye on this post.
