"Pokemon Go" Glitch News & Update: Pokemon Monsters Turn Giant; Incorrect Notification Vibration Bug
Compared to when the game was launched, the hype for “Pokemon GO” has died down. However, the company still has faithful users and they are still making 2 million on daily basis. Anyhow, the users that continued to play the game noticed an annoying glitch which turns the user's buddy Pokemon into a giant which will block their map for a few seconds.
According to The Mary Sue report, if the player clicks on their profile, their monster buddy will grow in giant size. There is an episode of “Pokemon” named “The Ancient Puzzle Of Pokemopolis” where a giant Gengar and Alakazam are battling and threatening to destroy the planet.
Kotaku reports that Pokemon games tend to shrink monsters so the users can’t get a good sense of a creature's true size. The glitch which the users noticed is representing an opposite problem, the glitch is making the monsters from the game giant-sized. The glitch makes the buddy monsters appear as big as the map itself. A lot of users started sharing photos from their giant-sized monsters on social media where the monsters are blocking the path. People do not seem to mind the glitch or the problem the company has, they are turning it into an interesting experience.
Another "Pokemon Go" bug is incorrect vibration notifying trainers on Nearby Pokemon. The official "Pokemon Go" Twitter tweeted about this issue and said that the team are fixing the problem.
We are aware of and actively working on a fix for a bug that causes incorrect vibration notifications related to the Nearby Pokémon feature.

According to Crunchyroll, the game will give the users a chance to choose a Pokemon buddy to follow them as they search the real world in a quest to catch them all. For most of the time, buddy monsters are a nice edition, but with the newest glitch, they are a bit of a problem. Even though people think they are funny and are playing with them, when they appear on the whole screen, they block the map which makes it impossible to play. However, this glitch won’t be a problem for long, Niantic announced they will fix it as soon as possible and update it as well.
