Pokemon GO Bug Leaves Nearby Radar Blank

Pokemon GO Bug Leaves Nearby Radar Blank

Sadly, Pokémon GO is no stranger to bugs (and not just the Pokémon type). iOS players previously encountered a bug that would require frequent tapping to prevent the game from going to sleep, and now, an older bug – the blanking of the radar – is getting worse for some players.

These distraught players took to Reddit to discuss their personal experiences with this bug. Essentially, the nearby radar turns blank, making all nearby Pokémon disappear. It seems to happen on both Android and iOS phones, thereby affecting all Pokémon GO players. Many players suggested restarting the game or viewing the journal as a way to fix the bug, but it does not appear to be a solid fix as some players have experienced this glitch since 2016.

While the Redditors discussed many factors that affected the bug (movement, wi-fi vs data, etc.), they all seemed to express dissatisfaction that this bug has remained so long. Pokémon GO developer Niantic has a reputation for providing continuous content and updates for its community, but it appears that Niantic may have dropped the ball on this glitch. Moreover, since the Gen 3 release, the bug has gotten worse for many players, although it is unknown why the bug has worsened.


Unlike the previous iOS bug, which was mostly just irritating, this bug has the potential to disrupt the typical game flow. Without the radar, the Pokémon won’t appear. Players, then, cannot catch the multitude of Pokémon recently introduced into the game. As many of the Redditors noted, this glitch is highly discouraging for old and new players who just want to enjoy the newest content released for the game.

As such, the recent release of Gen-3 Pokémon may have encouraged many players to return. The prospect of catching Hoenn starters Treecko, Mudkip, or Torchic is as alluring as the thought of catching the strongest Pokémon of the region such as Slaking, yet this glitch may possibly affect the overall mood of returning players in a negative fashion. As these Redditors suggested, it hasn’t been a positive experience for them.

Pokémon GO is available now for Android and iOS.
