Since the last update of Pokemon Go (6 December, Android 0.49.1) my game vibrates too often. It is exactly like the 'new-Pokemon-on-the-map', but there are actually no new Pokemon. Is this intended with the new update

It is not because I got another notification, because they all get sent to my wristband, my phone only vibrates on in-game vibrations.

  • I noticed this happening on the newest iOS version as well; but, can't figure out the reason behind it.

This bug has been fixed as of the latest update, 0.51.0 Android/1.21.0 iOS

The bug that caused incorrect vibration notifications has been fixed.

According to this thread it is most likely a bug that causes vibrating whenever Nearby (not Sightings) list updates.

Update: Niantic confirmed that it is a bug.
