Although it went through a pretty extensive Beta stage before its release on July 5, the game's still turning up plenty of bugs -- and we're not talking about Caterpies. Niantic, the game's developer, has already listed a whole host of problems in detail, including:
- Receive 'You already own this item' error message (Android only)
- Trainer progress temporarily resets to Level 1
- Distorted audio
- Heavy battery use
- My location is incorrect, unavailable, or jitters/drifts
- Receive 'This item is not available in your country' error when trying to download the app
Hey, Pallet Town wasn't built in a day, folks. And the game is free (with in-app purchases available), after all. But clearly, there are a few kinks to work out before this thing goes nuts.
Should you download Pokémon Go? Sure. But maybe wait a few days until, ya know, you can actually play it.
