Trainers, attention! We have a few news items and PSAs that you need to be aware of, especially if you’ve updated to 0.145.1 on Android. Your Adventure Sync may have stopped working silently!

0.145.1 stops Adventure Sync ⚠️

Trainers have reported that updating on 0.145.1 can result in Adventure Sync being turned off. If you have recently updated, please be sure to check if your Adventure Sync is turned on, as you will be losing valuable distance, which is super important for the current Adventure Week 2019 event. The bug was mostly reported on Android devices, but we’re not really sure if it’s limited to Android – please, check if you have been affected when you update.

Additionally, players have also reported that updating the app causes their phone to mark the as “optimized” and reduce the frequency of Adventure Sync’s background processes, almost disabling it completely. Samsung and OnePlus devices have been mentioned a lot and we can confirm that it is happening on both vendors. According to Don’t Kill My App, Nokia, OnePlus, Huawei and Xiaomi should be the worst offenders in this case.

To check whether this is happening or not, go to Settings > Battery > Battery Optimization and find Pokémon GO.

Ruin Maniac is a perfect fit for those looking to sport a Lara Croft look during the Adventure Week. 550 Coins is not cheap, but there only four set pieces which work well together. Unfortunately, we don’t see this set as something which can mix and match easily with other clothing items.
