Pokemon GO Reverts Pandemic Changes, Players React
Niantic, the developer behind the popular mobile game Pokemon GO, has faced backlash from its community as it recently reversed a major change that had been implemented in the game. This move has further contributed to the negative sentiments surrounding the franchise’s mobile title, adding to the ongoing dissatisfaction among players.
Pokemon GO, which celebrated its seventh anniversary this year, has proven to be a resilient presence in the mobile gaming market. It managed to thrive even during the global pandemic, thanks to Niantic’s swift adjustments that allowed players to continue enjoying the game from the safety of their homes. However, it appears that the recent changes made by Niantic are now working against the company, especially since features introduced during lockdown are being reverted to their original settings.
