Niantic Removing Pokemon Go Legendary Pokemon From Player’s Accounts
Earlier this week reports of a first Pokemon Go legendary Pokemon popping up in Ohio started to surface on the internet. Some trainers claimed that they have caught the legendary Pokemon.
However, Niantic has a different stance on the situation, as they claimed that the studio has not sent any Pokemon Go legendary Pokemon in Ohio. The studio claims that the news of the legendary Pokemon is fake or could be a result of a hack.
It seems that the players who already have the legendary Pokemon might have got it through a hack, and according to Niantic they found some of the trainers who have the legendary Pokemon. As those Pokemon were not officially released, Niantic is planning to remove those from the their accounts.
We recently noticed that a few Legendary Pokemon got into a few accounts when they shouldn’t have. To preserve the game’s integrity and as a measure of fairness, we have rectified the situation and revoked the legendary Pokemon from the Trainers’ accounts.
In related news, Pokemon Go remains on its patch to break all the records. According to a data analytics firm, in-game time spent by player in Pokemon Go is still high, as averagely a player spends 26 minutes a day playing the game in US.
The game has passed 160 million dollars in global revenue, according to Sensor Tower.
While playing Pokemon Go is enjoyable, some players have also taken it as an opportunity for losing weight. An English Pokemon Go player, Sam Clark, has caught all 142 Pokemon in the United Kingdom, and he has lost 25 Kg of weight while walking almost 225 kilometers.
Pokemon Go is an augmented reality game from Niantic Labs and published by The Pokemon Company for iOS and Android systems.
