Issue status: Investigating
Mega Energy claimed through research rewards are not displayed properly (visual bug)
Issue description
: When collecting Mega Energy as a reward from a research task, the Mega Energy does not appear visually as a collected reward. This is a visual bug, and the Mega Energy is added correctly to the Trainer’s account and displayed correctly when viewing Pokémon of the corresponding evolution line.
Issue status: Investigating
Sorting Gifts by the gift icon is broken for some Trainers
Issue description: Sorting Gifts by the gift icon on the Friend List is not working as intended.
Issue status: This is an expected side effect of preparation we’re doing for future improvements to sending Gifts. This should be largely resolved for most players now, but we expect this to be resolved for everyone once activation of these improvements is complete.
Raid Battle does not progress to rewards screen after defeating Raid Boss
Issue description: After defeating a Raid Boss, the app does not consistently progress to show the rewards earned for the Raid Battle and instead stalls on the Raid Battle screen with the timer still ticking down.
Workaround: If the Raid Battle is still active at the Gym, you’ll be able to access the Raid Pokémon encounter by tapping on the Gym or the Raid Invitation again.
Issue status: One root cause has been identified and fixed. We will continue to investigate this issue to find out if there are other causes.
Visual bug: Invited friends who rejoin a Raid Battle are requested to use another Raid Pass
Issue description: If you join a Raid Battle remotely through a friend’s invite and are removed to the Map View (e.g., after an app crash) after the Raid Battle begins, you must have another Remote Raid Pass in your Item Bag before you are able to rejoin the battle. This is a visual bug and the second pass is not actually consumed upon re-entry. However, due to this issue players without an additional Remote Raid Pass in their Item Bag may be requested to purchase one to be able to rejoin the Raid Battle.
Issue status: One root cause has been resolved in 0.185. We are investigating further reports of this issue.
