Unable to battle specific Pokémon

Last Updated: 11/02/2017
Update: This issue has been resolved.

We are aware of a bug where the game is unable to load battles against particular Gym defenders. Trainers may experience unresponsive gameplay when entering battles against such Pokémon.

Battles affected by this issue will display the "PlayerName" text in place of the actual Trainer nicknames during the battle intro screen.
