Pokémon GO it’s immensely popular, but that doesn’t mean it’s always trouble-free. From time to time the community discovers problems that show that the game is far from perfect.

That’s exactly what happened recently with a major bug related to trades. Said programming problem caused the developer studio to decide that it was best to disable the exchanges while they found a solution.

What happened? What happens is that yesterday a user of The Silph Road, the subreddit of Pokémon GO, reported that he traded 100 Pokemon with a friend. The interesting thing about this situation is that all the creatures that were part of the trade were transformed into Pokémon with luck.

In case you didn’t know, lucky Pokémon can only be obtained once a day. These are special creatures as they have higher stats and it is easier to increase their power. Thus, it is a type of Pokémon especially useful for combat and which turn out to be highly coveted.

Niantic disabled trading and fans are not happy

For Niantic this error was not acceptable. This is why they decided to disable the exchange system until they find a solution to this bug that many players wanted to take advantage of.

“Trainers, trades are currently unavailable while we investigate an issue. We apologize for the inconvenience and will continue to share news here. Thank you very much for your patience,” Niantic said.

It is worth mentioning that Niantic disabled exchanges more than 15 hours ago. Since then, the developer has not said more about this situation.

As you can imagine, the community has not made this decision quite right. It’s just that they are annoyed that Niantic reacts so quickly to issues that benefit players, but is slower when it comes to fixing other issues.

And you, what do you think about this situation? Do you think Niantic should have allowed the community to take advantage of the bug? Tell us in the comments.
