1. Pokemon Go will crash on you
Anyone who has played even for a little while knows that game crashes suck.
Whether it is while you are trying to catch a Charmeleon or just sitting around, the game does lose connection to the server occasionally (right now I’d say ‘often’ but I have faith that Niantec will spin up enough servers soon enough.
When it does there are two things you need to know.
- If you are in the middle of catching a Pokemon, just let the server connection ball spin until it is done. Even if you can’t see it the server still knows if you caught the Pokemon or not and if you reset while it’s communicating then it automatically gets out. Some chance is better than no chance.
- If you are standing in one space and notice that there hasn’t been much activity even if you are in the area of a Lure or have Incense on then kill the app and restart your game. You are probably disconnected from the server.
