In this article we’ll be looking at causes behind Pokémon GO not launching or launching slowly and how to solve them.
It is my belief that Pokémon GO is a game that will continue to be played for a long time, and the slow launch is a rather frequent problem.
This slow launch time can lead to the game not launching at all if left alone, so let’s have a look at some of the solutions.
What causes are there for slow launch speeds or launch failures in Pokémon GO?
@ Not using recommended ОS or mobile devices for which operations are guaranteed
There are mobile devices that are either recommended or on which operations are guaranteed for mobile games such as Pokémon GO.
Various issues may come to hand if your mobile device doesn’t come under either of these cases.
You also need to watch out for data updates, as there is a possibility that your current device may stop being supported following such updates.
Your mobile device may lose its operating guarantee if you use unauthorized tools or bring modifications to your device.
Problems may not stop at the game not launching or launching slowly, leading on to more severe problems.
B Insufficient storage space on your device
More and more storage space will be needed for the new data from updates.
The game may not launch or launch slowly if the available storage space is insufficient.
? Insufficient memory on your device
Although rare, on some occasions your device may run into a lack of available memory if you keep several apps running simultaneously.
This could lead to the game not launching or launching slowly.
D The communication environment is unstable
The lines can get congested with the data from the updates, in some occasions causing slow launch times immediately after these updates.
The same can be said in areas where you have a bad signal.
What solutions are there when Pokémon GO doesn’t launch or when launch times are slow?
@ Swap your mobile device for one that runs under the recommended OS or on which operation is guaranteed
The easiest solution would be to change your mobile device itself.
For those who can’t immediately change models, it is important to not play for the time being.
A Do not cheat
Normal usage of your Smartphone causes no harm, so make sure you don’t do anything unnecessary!!
B Delete or move unnecessary data
Storing too many unused apps or photos can cause a lack of sufficient storage space.
You should regularly delete or move these to free up some space.
? Close applications
Regularly closing the apps prevents too much cache from piling up and can also positively affect battery life.
D Play in a stable communication environment
If you’re playing at home, you should remedy any problems your Wi-Fi router may have.
You should leave a space of about an hour before resuming play after updates.
