This question already has an answer here:
- Grimer in Arena let the game crash 2 answers
Hatched a Grimer which caused the game to crash during the hatch-animation. Clicking on Grimer afterwards, results in a freeze at the stats-screen of Grimer. It also results in freezes for every pokemon I caught after Grimer.
Crashed happened initially on the non-updated version. Tried a re-install (and now am updated to the latest version, i.e. 0.31.0) and still not working.
The phone I was playing on is a Sony Xperia Compact Z1.
Any ideas how to get rid of that bug ?
Bug summary: clicking on Grimer (either in the Pokédex or in the list with all your Pokémons) results in a freeze, so does clicking on the Pokémon left or right (before and behind), likely because the app is already trying to load the image of Grimer.
Update 1: I can click on any pokemon except on Grimer now without a crash
but none of the images of any pokemon is loading. The images are only there when the pokemon stats are automatically showing up directly after you caught them. (see Update 3 for an explanation).
Update 2: Android Version 4.4.4
Update 3: After a few crashes and restarts, the pokemon images are back.
Update 4: After a little bit of research, I found that for a few users, cleaning the data and the cache might help (did not work for me and for most of the other users.). Also, I submitted an official bug report, just to let them know (they might read it, maybe...).
Update 5: Bug is still there in current version (0.33.0)
Update 6: Version 0.35.0, bug is still there
Update 7 (as requested from @Vemonus): in my opinion, it is not a duplicate of this question since that question was specifically addressing the arenas (when somebody else put a Grimer there) whereas here we are talking about the situation when you own a Grimer (although the origin of the bug is, of course, the same: Grimer's heavy animation).
