A player of Pokémon Go expressed his dissatisfaction on social networks because of an error which unfairly prevented him from obtain costumed Pokémon during Raids that are still active after the end of the event.
Pokémon Go players have a lot of work to do with the current season, Time Travels, which features a lot of content across several events< a i=2>. One of these events allowed players to capture new costumed Pokémon, but some players are discovering that an annoying bug is preventing them from obtaining these special Pokémon.
This happened to several members of the Pokémon Go community who, tired of being ‘lured’ by Niantic, took to social media to protest this annoying glitch.
Reddit user ‘backdoorintruder’ was one of the players sharing a post on the Pokémon Go Reddit asking the developers to fix this ASAP and said: “Has anyone else had this problem today?”
The author also shared details about several failed Raids where he lost his chance to obtain various costumed species: “I did 3 Raids tonight for Hoothoot, Gengar, and Bulbasaur. Everyone wore their respective hats until the capture screen. Has anyone else experienced this? Really disappointed with this lure by Niantic.”
An angry Pokémon Go player responded to the author’s post: “This happens a lot if the event is over. Horrible, but Niantic doesn’t know how to code.” While another added: “Wow this is ridiculous.”
Meanwhile, one of the trainers explained what happened: “When the event ends, so do the special appearances. You did the Raids after 8 p.m., so you didn’t get the costumed Pokémon.” To which Reddit user ‘pogokitten’ responded: “So they shouldn’t let Special Raids start if they’re going to end after the event. I wasted a remote pass because I really wanted the Hoothoot shiny lol.”
In the event that Niantic offers an explanation as to why this happened or introduces a fix for this error, we will let you know. In the meantime, we should look forward to the next Community Day featuring Brindibou and the next Raid Day ofTyphlosion of Hisui in Pokémon Go.
