Pokémon Go Update Glitch Causes Players To Lose EVERYTHING! See Some Of The Angriest Responses!

Filed under: Tech TalkTwitter

It's a hard life out there for a Pokémon trainer — especially when you lose all your Pokémon!

Pokémon Go players are LIVID after a new update on the popular app caused a glitch that resets their gameplay and takes them all the way back to level one!

The new update was mostly about fixing bugs, though it also added much more specific safety warnings (see above) when the game turns on.

Not only does the augmented reality game remind players to "be alert at all times," but now players are warned to "not trespass" or "enter dangerous areas" while playing — and of course, don't play "while driving!"

Unfortunately that little update came with a BIG digital hiccup that removed the precious Pokémon and gathered items of select players, hundreds of irate fans flocked to Twitter like a swarm of angry Beedrills to appropriately freak out!

Some called out game developer Niantic to refund any money spent on the game, since players have the option to spend real money to purchase extra in-game items.

Fans suggested that logging out of Google Mail on the Safari app could fix the glitch, but this method isn't guaranteed to work — then again, nothing is guaranteed in the world of Pokémon…

Either way, fans are so pissed about having to start over, some have announced they would be deleting the game forever!

Ch-ch-check out some of the angriest Tweets (below)!
