We reported two weeks ago that Pokemon GO was broken on the Galaxy S20 series and it wasn’t Samsung’s fault. An update for the game released at that time had a bug which prevented it from running normally on the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+ and the Galaxy S20 Ultra.This meant that there wouldn’t be a fix for the problem until Niantic, the developer of Pokemon GO, released an update for the popular game. That has finally happened and as a result of the latest update, Pokemon GO is no longer broken on the Galaxy S20.All is now well with Pokemon GO on the Galaxy S20 seriesThe reports about Pokemon GO not being able to run on Galaxy S20 devices first emerged on Samsung’s official forums. Users were complaining that the game would freeze as soon as it finished loading, making it impossible to play Pokemon GO on these devices.Niantic later confirmed that it was looking into the issue, it mentioned that much on the known issues page on its website. The developer said it was investigating reports of increases crashes and freezes when using Pokemon GO on Galaxy S20 devices, and that a fix would be released in an upcoming update.It has since updated the known issues page to confirm that the issue has been resolved in the latest update.
