Days after the Sun & Moon Pokedex was introduced in Pokemon Go, players began taking to social media platforms to air their grievances. Over on the r/PokemonGo forums, a thread titled “Everyone Else Feels It’s “Season of the Birds” Instead of Alola” addressed the criticism.

Other fans admitted their experiences were similar as well, and suggested the game’s lack of spawn variety.
