“It seems it may have something to with catching mon at lured stops. Does not appear to be due to placing the lure or catching ONLY random mon. Other people in comments have stated they didn’t place a lure but caught pokemon at a lure and got soft banned. I have avoided lures since 3pm (when I got off work) and haven’t had a single softban. Meanwhile my neighbors whole family is soft banned at an area filled with lures currently

Has anyone gotten softbanned without catching a single mon from a lure?

For now, there doesn’t appear to be any quick fix for the issues, but thankfully we do know that Niantic developers are on the case to fix the problem as we speak.

Thankfully Niantic support staff member NianticIndigo has been on hand to reassure fans that a fix is on the way:

“We’ve made some adjustments in an attempt to resolve this issue but are continuing to monitor performance.”

Head of The Silph Road, Dronpes also let fans know that they’ll be “consolidating the dozens of reports about this bug to this thread.”

Equally, DronPes also explained:

“This is affecting many players around the world. We recommend staying tuned until Niantic have rolled out a fix.

“As a reminder, if you purchase items and they’re unable to be used due to a glitch like this, feel free to submit an official help ticket and these items tend to be restored to your account.

“Though with the 6 hour lures, odds are very high that this issue will be resolved with many hours left on lures.”

Hopefully by the time most of European players wake up, Niantic will have solved this pesky problem once and for all!

As a reminder, the Pokemon GO Grass event will finish this Monday evening, but before then players have the opportunity to catch a whole host of Grass Pokemon.

In addition, when they work, Lures should last six hours each for the entire weekend, which will provide another big boost to the number of Grass Pokemon spawning throughout the festival.

On the subject of Grass Pokemon, we’ve grabbed a quick list of the grass types that could be spawning during the ‘Worldwide Bloom’ event.
