Pokémon Go Problems
However, even with the good news of an update, what struck people was a bug that can wipe out the trainer’s account details.
“Saw one other person with this issue so far. I’m quite concerned, not only because of the hours I’ve put in but the amount of real money too. I forgot my password (Google), clicked “Help”, entered the last password I remembered for the account; it logged me in and took me to the new trainer creation screen. Now even after deleting the app and all of its data and reinstalling all I can log into is this “new account” which is linked to the same Gmail address as my level 25 one, so apparently that’s been completely wiped and replaced,” International Business Times quoted a Pokémon Go user.
For those who want to get their trainer account back, they should try to tap on “forgot password” then follow the instructions. Key in the new password so user can access the original user-ID and even retrieved the last saved Trainer level.
