Pokemon Go ARG by Niantic (a Google company)

Hi all. Back in, in a big way. My son is into the card game now so it’s all Pokémon all the time around here.

Looking to give out some gifts if anyone needs friends. I’ll add as many as I can.

Request sent!

For those of you on my PokeGo friends list, I’m sorry I’ve not been sending gifts lately; since Jan 1 my app has refused to let me log in and I’ve not gotten any response from the ‘recover’ my username/password request. It makes no sense, because I’m still able to log into the website with my credentials. I reinstalled the app and that hasn’t helped. Anyone else encounter this before? It’s been enough of a barrier that I may have fallen off the band wagon.

Happy 2019 to everyone though!

There are rare cases of accounts being stolen, changing the login credentials.

The last thing caught I see right now is a Delibird, so I assume you have not been hacked. Which service do you use?

I created a Pokemon Trainer Club login (when I recently restarted). I can login to the website still, so I'm not sure what the problem is and I've just not had time to track it down; no response to my "Can't sign in?" query through the app.

There's the problem right there. Pokemon trainer club is absolutely awful programming and their support is even worse. I remade my kids account (after gaining 25 levels) under a fake google account because the Pokemon trainer club was so bad.

Bummer. I'm not going to be much use on a raiding party if I have to restart my account again right before PAX South!

Any chance you're on a rooted phone? Niantic has gone a little overboard trying to kick out cheaters.

Nope. Good point though.

You can add a google account to an existing account that originally signed up with PTC - I did it but it was a pain in the ass. I forget the details, but I recall I had to temporarily add a fake facebook account to my pokemon credentials, to make the transfer happen, but since then I've had no login problems.

I've sent in a support email to Niantic but if they don't respond with anything useful I'm off the band wagon again.

Oh weird, if you can log into the website but not the app that's weird. Did you try uninstalling and reinstalling, or force-clearing the app's data and cache etc?

Yeah also try the Pokemon go Reddit or Silph road Reddit for tips. It will at least let you know if it is a common issue.

On a side note... I'm loaded with Pokemon to trade at PAX South if anyone needs carnivine or other South related regionals hit me up.

I imagine this already occurs when uninstalling the game, but have you tried clearing the game's cache? My wife and I regularly get kicked out with credential problems in Pokemon Go (we use trainer accounts) and clearing the app cache and force quitting the app (if it was still running) usually resolves it. It sounds like that's probably not the case here, but I wanted to mention it just in case.

Also, do you have access to another phone or tablet on which you can install Pokemon Go to check out whether the issue may be something tied to your main phone?

The silph road subreddit has been tracking a locked out of accounts issue, and things are progressing, but slowly.

Sinnoh Stones for trainer battles and gym leader practice today! Up to 5 each! Don't miss it!

I think I’m going to get into this. My 5yo daughter has gotten into Pokémon. We caught a dozen or so tonight and she had a blast. Not sure what friending does and I’m not likely to be that helpful for a while, but I’d love to friend up all the same. I’ll comb through a few pages and friend who I can find, but feel free to add me.

And so I’ve leveled enough to pick a team. I’m a neophyte with Pokémon. And no local friends who play GO. Does it matter which I choose?

I don’t think it matters really, no. Adding you.

Well it matters in that if you're the only yellow in an area full of reds (can't remember the correct team names, sorry!) it's a pain in the ass trying to hold gyms - if you ever get to that point.

Adding Antichulius as well.

I'd say you will want to pick a team that has a lot of control in your area that you play in mostly. Otherwise you will have a hard time holding gyms and getting coins to upgrade your pokemon storage and inventory which you will need.

Added you, Anti! Mr. Dragon may add you as well.

Between gifts and the Adventure Sync bonus I'm having the hardest time managing my items so that I can still spin stops and give/receive gifts... that and running out of gifts when my work pokestop doesn't cough up enough. I should probably stop hoarding rare candies and golden berries waiting for a 'mon that's "worth it," but years of hoarding valuable items in RPGs has trained me poorly for this.

FYI, my wife's code was posted a while back but she's looking to add some more folks (her account is Triluna4), and she also has an alt now (Zynestar). If you see a bunch of requests, don't be surprised.

I think there's a few in here I've missed too, so I'm gonna go fill in anyone not already in my list.
