For 48 hours, Pokemon GO is providing the region-limited Corsola throughout all of Europe.
Pokemon Go simply held its latest public event in Dortmund, Germany, and whereas attendance was nice it did face some technical hiccups on Saturday. As an apology, Niantic Labs is operating a limited-time occasion wherein region-specific Pokemon like Corsola and Roselia will appear across Europe for 48 hours.
In different circumstances, this might be an important apology – and it’s excellent news basically for European gamers. But it has annoyed followers who made the journey to Dortmund particularly for uncommon Pokemon like Corsola.
This report from Eurogamer has compiled social media posts on the topic. “So I spend £300 to go to Germany for a special event to get regional Pokémon,” one tweet reads. “Before I even get home you have released it to everyone who didn’t leave home or pay anything. I can’t trade any of these now. You have made the situation worse.”
Niantic’s John Hanke beforehand informed Eurogamer that merely giving Corsola to Dortmund attendees raised different technical issues, so the studio would attempt to strike one other steadiness. “We looked at many options yesterday thinking of the right way to follow up and some consideration was given to that one,” he defined, “but there are some challenges to being able to do that.”
While this isn’t an important search for Niantic, it’s laborious to disclaim the Dortmund occasion itself wasn’t a significant draw. Pokemon GO posted a summary that confirmed 170,000 trainers attended, a lot of whom traveled from in a foreign country. If Niantic desires that goodwill to proceed nonetheless, these technical points must be have faster resolutions.
Region-specific like Corsola and Roselia can be found throughout Europe till 11:59 pm UTC on July 4, 2018.
