Pokemon Go players have vented their frustration after the Elite Raid event opened in Regidrago with widespread crashes across different regions.

Pokemon Go players detailed why the recent Regidrago Elite Raids were such an all around frustrating experience.

Over the course of the event, players took to social media to air their complaints about the myriad of issues they faced while trying to participate in the raids.

To make matters worse, many fans were frustrated after the mobile game stopped completely before the 11:00am event start time.

Interestingly, the severity of the crashes was different for players, as one noted, “I can go into the game and click on a Pokémon but it crashes when I try to go into a raid.” Others indicated that they encountered a “down for maintenance” message when starting the event.

I got it in a ball and then it goes to the “Cannot find Pokemon” or something error screen.” In the end, they were forced to abandon the raid.

“I stood outside in the sideways sleet rain for 30 minutes only to have the game fail the whole time. It was time for me to give that game up and spend that time on more productive things, like watching the paint dry.”

With Niantic’s recent pledge to in-person experiences coming right before the disastrous, personal-only Regidrago event, the community is understandably upset with the developer.
