Listen, if some big name youtuber uses MEMES to deal with sloppy shit that are most likely FEATURES and not BUGS (!!) you know that your game isn’t going anywhere.
So, 3 points.
- Fast catching will result in a white seizure flash popping up
- You can’t skip raid rewards in the newest update, especially on Iphone. (In Android clicking back will skip directly to the catch screen)
- Framerate drops that increae over time when the app is active, I never tested it on GBL but I already took more balls than I should to catch stuff over this.
People are EXPLICITLY saying that they lost motivation over this, if you want to see some reddit articles I could link.
And I doubt these would be fixed anytime soon considering they do not appear to be glitches, they are most likely deliberate.
I theorize that since Pokemon Unite is out soon and chances are it will be a better competitive environment than GO, Niantic is literally destroying the game so they go there or Pokemon Masters. (I don’t need to mention the XL Candy, paywalling or timewalling common Pokemon like Vulpix, Remote Raids or the overall piggishness of GBL)
