My progress was reset to level 1

Some Trainers might experience an issue where it appears that gameplay progress has been reset. Please be assured that your gameplay progress has NOT been lost. It remains safe and intact.

You may have inadvertently created another Pokémon GO account. This happens when you create a Pokémon GO account with one login method (Google Account or Pokémon Trainer Club) and later attempt to sign in with a different login method or email address.

To resolve this issue:

You’ll need to log out of the account you’re currently signed into and sign in with the email address and login method you originally used to create your Pokémon GO account.

    1. In Map View, touch the Main Menu
    2. At the top right, touch Settings
    3. On the Settings screen, take note of the email address and login method presented below the Sign Out option.

      You are currently logged into your account using this combination of email address and login method.

    4. Touch Sign Out
    5. Sign in using the same email address AND login method used when you originally created your Pokémon GO account.
Important note: Select the same email address used when you originally created your Pokémon GO account. Please see the “I don’t know which email address I used to log in to Pokémon GO” article if you don’t remember which account you used.
