This week Niantic announced several features to support World Tourism Day. As the tweets below show, trainers were most thrilled with the announcement about the region-limited Pokemon available in 5km eggs.
It’s important to note that by announcing an event to promote tourism, one day before the event, instead of promoting tourism Niantic is promoting spoofing.
The “respective regions” part kinda killed the hype.— MysticYuuzuki🎼青組TL40 (@Prism_Yuuzuki) September 25, 2019
Region locked mime jr is a horrible idea.— Roger Agnew (@rca_2011) September 25, 2019
Wtf? Why not worldwide?— Puma (@PumaMw2) September 25, 2019
This event sucks. Let us hatch Pokémon from outside our own region! I'm tired of Tauros— PhazonEnhanced (@Egg_Smasher) September 26, 2019
This might be the worst event we’ve had in Pokémon Go. No ones wanting to have a chance at hatching regionals that are in their regions from 5K eggs. And it’s been 3 years. Make the gen 1 regionals spawn worldwide. No use in making them regionals now that mostly everyone has one— Mitch O’Claus (@pizzalover4189) September 25, 2019
Region locked eggs, that's dumb— Goldust321 (@Goldust321) September 25, 2019
Meh. Worst event ever— Mitch O’Claus (@pizzalover4189) September 26, 2019
Legit players: boooooo, shit event!— Evelien 🇳🇱 Pokemon / Anime ❤ (@Eeveelien) September 25, 2019
Wait, only in their regions??? Wtf— Captain Jett (@CaptainJett12) September 25, 2019
Trainers were also thrilled with Niantic’s announcement that they were optimizing the Pokemon Go experience for trainers. Apparently, this is code for removing their favorite spawn points.
Villain! Give me back my spawns!— Jay Kim (@jaykimdotnet) September 27, 2019
why take any spawns away. why not just add spawns. literally can’t hurt.— jess (@JESSEDWALKER) September 27, 2019
Investigate 1st where all the crap spawns went!!!?🙄— Bhebe Ganda (@bhebe_ganda) September 26, 2019
Thats was bad for me. Spawns nearby had been gone. Miss em— Thiago Lopes Costa (@lliwlopes) September 27, 2019
Some trainers continued to reply about the missing spawn points in unrelated threads.
FIX THE DAMN SPAWNS!!!— Stephen Rainey (@srainey3) September 26, 2019
Why’d all these spawns disappear?? 😕 pic.twitter.com/x1iXtcX7An— Brett (@Brett0_0) September 27, 2019
@NianticLabs y'all really fucked up with time with the change of spawns. There is literally ZERO reason to take away spawn points. Only adding them makes sense. Do you think I want to go for a 6 mile walk to catch 17 Pokemon? No one in their right mind does. We pay you now fix it pic.twitter.com/hPxYe0JtGF— 👻 Ghost Pokémon Master 👻 (@BlainesInstinct) September 27, 2019
Some of the wizards playing Harry Potter: Wizards Unhinged aren’t happy with their favorite Niantic product. Neither of these complaints are shocking if you’ve been following how Niantic has treated agents and trainers for the last few years.
Nothing! The wu community days are severely lacking! Plus the fact you didn’t tell anyone about the boosted fortresses! Our group of 20 or so stopped playing and switched to Pokémon go. Your going to start losing players if you don’t do something better.— pnutscbrown (@pnutscbrown131) September 23, 2019
Still no word on fixing distance/movement calculation? You do know portkeys are useless lumps, right?— Andrew Wilson (@OddballPaladin) September 24, 2019
Speaking of agents, the [redacted] scanner is being retired tomorrow. Something something something Nemesis hacked [redacted], or something, and that’s why they have to shutdown the scanner. But, anywayz, we’re still seeing a stream of agents relutant to switch to Prime.
@ingress and yet you still don't understand how you are killing this game by not AT LEAST implementing a "classic skin" toggle. Not only does the prime scanner look like ass, on a sunny day you can't see anything. Fix the bugs, and give us a skin option before you kill redacted pic.twitter.com/9ZEA4RjP48— earh0x minis (@earh0x) September 22, 2019
