Pokémon GO has been a popular game among Android and iOS users for years. However, Niantic, the game’s developer, is making changes to its remote raids, which has caused many players to consider leaving the game. Despite this, there are still some players who remain loyal to the game.
A Reddit post titled “Those who leave the game permanently on April 6, do not forget to thank the community” highlights the contribution of players to the game’s experience. While some players feel that the developer, Niantic, deserves gratitude, others feel the opposite due to recent changes to the remote raids.
Niantic has planned significant updates to its remote raids to balance the game and ensure that players can continue to enjoy it in the future. These updates include an increase in the price of lots of three remote raid passes to 525 Pokécoins and a limit of five remote raids per day. The developer has also decided to add a bundle of three premium battle passes to the shop for the price of 250 PokéCoins.
Niantic’s decision to increase the price of remote raid passes has been met with criticism from the game’s community. A Change.org petition has been created to urge the developer to reconsider the changes, citing the impact they will have on disabled people, parents, immunocompromised individuals, and rural players who do not have a community to play with.
Despite this backlash, it is unclear whether Niantic will reverse its decision regarding the remote raids. While some players are leaving the game, others continue to play and hope for the best.
