I’ve also noticed that sometimes the distance is coming up as a negative number (screenshot attached). I’m wondering if this is some sort of new way to get around the GPS drift issue.

If this happens to you, be very happy because changing your Pokemon gets rid of the negative distance and you get to keep the candy 😋 Author Posts Viewing 2 posts - 1 through 2 (of 2 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
