Wasted 10 balls on a Pidgey?! Niantic promises Pokemon Go update bug fix

If you thought your recent inability to catch even the most common Pokemons with a ball or two is a natural byproduct of leveling up, you are in for a surprise. Noticed how those lowly Weedles or Pidgeys, not to mention the fluttering Zubats are much, much harder to catch after the latest Pokemon Go update?

Well, that's apparently a bug in the newest version of the game itself, and Niantic has even acknowledged its existence, tipping that it will work on a fix. Whew, and we thought wasting 5 Super Balls to catch a Pidgey that's constantly jumping and dodging is the new normal now. Better pass through those Poke Stops on the way home, folks, at least until the fix arrives. Meanwhile, have fun with this nice sum-up of the situation below.

That really explains a lot then. Ever since the update, I'd to basically re-learn my throw. Catching pokemon is a lot harder then it should be at least not for a Pidgey or Ratatta

They changed the camera so now pokemon are much closer, making it easier to hit the pokemon (Golbat in a distance was a nightmare before!), but making it harder to get bonus.

"Whew, and we thought wasting 5 Super Balls to catch a Pidgey that's constantly jumping and dodging is the new normal now." Super balls? Do you even Pokemon Go, bro? GTFO Daniel P.

I think he was talking about them shiny blueballs. You need blueballs to catch a Pidgey.
