Pokémon GO developer Niantic confirms numerous issues when interacting with Gyms and Raid Battles

Pokémon GO developer Niantic has confirmed that some players are experiencing issues interacting with Gyms and Raid Battles. The following is a list of common bugs that have been reported in the current version of Pokémon GO:

Trainers incorrectly receive an error message when attempting to assign a Pokémon to a Gym
Some Trainers may experience a bug where they are unable to assign a Pokémon to a Gym shortly after the Gym was claimed for their team. Attempting to assign a Pokémon returns the error message: “The Gym is under attack! Try again later.”
UPDATE: This issue has been resolved in Pokémon GO to version 0.67.2 (1.37.2). Please download this update when it becomes available to you.

Unable to see Gym Battle visual effects
Trainers cannot see when a Gym is in battle from Map View.
UPDATE: This issue has been resolved in Pokémon GO to version 0.67.2 (1.37.2). Please download this update when it becomes available to you.

Didn’t receive an Evolution item on 7th-day Streak Bonus
We are investigating an issue where players report not receiving an Evolution item after spinning the Photo Disc on the 7th-day of their streak.

Unable to access Pokémon GO using Pokémon Trainer Club with iOS 9
We are investigating this issue. While we work to identify the root cause, we’ve heard from players that upgrading to iOS 10 resolves this issue.
UPDATE: this issue should be resolved now. 

Dodging causes the battle to become unresponsive
We are actively working to resolve an issue where gameplay becomes unresponsive after dodging an attack during a battle.

I didn’t receive the Defender bonus
We have received reports that Trainers haven’t been able to collect their Defender bonus after the Gym update. Learn more.

Pokémon GO Plus accessory is unable to connect to your phone 
We are aware of an issue with the Pokémon GO Plus not being able to connect to some Android devices. We are working to resolve this problem.

I cannot see sponsored PokéStops or Gyms
Sponsored locations (branded PokéStops and Gyms created through partnership agreements with Niantic) are only available to Trainers ages 13 or over. Trainers under the age of 13 are not able to see or interact with sponsored locations.

The app is stuck on the loading screen (Android)
This may happen if our servers are experiencing a temporary issue. If the issue persists, please make sure your phone has the latest version of Pokémon GO and ensure that your phone has not restricted background data access for Google Play Services and Google Play Store. Learn how to turn on background data.

PokéCoins and premium items do not appear in my account
Please try the following steps if you’re having trouble seeing PokéCoins or premium items in your account:

  • Sign out and sign back into Pokémon GO. Open Pokémon GO, touch Main Menu > Settings and then select “Sign out.”
  • If that does not resolve the issue, try powering off your device and restarting.

Trainer progress temporarily resets to Level 1
If it appears that your gameplay progress has been reset, please be assured that your gameplay progress has NOT been lost. You may have inadvertently created two Pokémon GO accounts: one account using Google and one using Pokémon Trainer Club. If you create an account with one login method and later attempt to use the other login method, a second account is created. Learn how to resolve this issue here.

Heavy battery use
Some devices may experience battery drain while playing Pokémon GO for prolonged periods of time. We are working on a solution.

My location is incorrect, unavailable, or jitters/drifts
We’re constantly working to improve GPS accuracy and stability. In general, GPS accuracy largely depends on the device you’re using and your signal/connection strength. To improve your device’s location, please review the following settings:

  • Pokémon GO has location permissions enabled
  • Internet connectivity is enabled (3G, 4G, Wi-Fi)
  • Device location/GPS is enabled
  • Location/GPS set to high-accuracy mode
