Xiaomi Smartphone users running on MIUI 10.3.1.0 and MIUI 10.3.2.0 Global Stable version are reportedly getting banned from Pokemon Go for reasons not known. Popular Xiaomi models like Redmi 5, Redmi Note 5, Redmi Note 5 Pro, Redmi 5 Plus, Redmi 6, and Redmi Note 7 have been affected leaving multiple Pokemon Go players helpless and disappointed for no mistake of theirs. In fact, this issue came to light after a lot of Xiaomi smartphone users took to social media to address this issue including Twitters #NianticStopBanXiaomi campaign.
Usually, Suspected players using hacks or violating Pokemon Go’s protocols are initially banned for a period of 6 days, but some Xiaomi users are facing bans for as long as thirty days!
Niantic, as of now, has promised to look into this matter and sort it out as soon as possible but Xiaomi is yet to respond about this issue. All we can suspect right now is that something has gone berserk with the anti-cheat algorithm of Pokemon Go. Earlier this month, Niantic was also seen blaming Xiaomi’s Game Turbo feature that was being flagged by their systems. I hope the issue gets fixed soon.
As of the game, Niantic has introduced the latest gen-5 Pokemon along with Unova Stone item and Mewtwo is gonna be all yours if you can capture it in a five-star raid. Pokemons like Tepig, Oshawott, and Snivy can now be found in the wild (they come from the Pokemon black and white series) along with other gen-5 Pokemons like Patrat, Lillipup, Purrloin, Pidove, and Blitzle. Pokemons like Drilbur, Litwick, Foongus, and Ferroseed can be hatched from some types of eggs.
