Trainers, attention! Here are a few news item that you may have missed and we’ve assembled them all in one place. Our news roundup are infrequent posts that summarize multiple news items that was not big enough to warrant a full blown post.
Update 0.171.3 forced
The newest Pokémon GO update has been forced and you will have to update in order to continue playing. This update has version number 0.171.3 and it is creating problems for Samsung S20 owners with Exynos processors (everyone outside of USA). The game freezes after update. Please be aware of this.
In addition, the update has broken 3D models and caused several other issues on various devices, so please be prepared for some pain points until Niantic releases a fix. Early reports indicate that the majority of problems came with a Unity 3D update, but we can’t verify that.
