Portal was moved and now the Pokestop is gone

Issue title: A portal was moved into a different cell and now the Pokestop that was on that portal is gone.

Description of the issue: Someone moved a portal into a different cell that already had a portal with a Pokestop in it. I've seen several times that this just means that cell has two Pokestops in it now. But this time, the Pokestop vanished. It's not in its old location, it's not in its new location. It's just gone. But the portal still exists. I've verified that much. Is this just some synchronization bug, or is the Pokestop gone for good?

The location edit was valid by the way, the portal was definitely in the wrong location before.

    This is normal since Niantic changed its system a few months ago.

  • Hi there,

    This looks to be working as intended. Each game has its own set of inclusion criteria for locations so not every Wayspot that appears in Ingress will be a PokéStop or Gym (or Greenhouse/Inn/Fortress for that matter).

    In updating the location to be more accurate, it looks the new location was likely too close to an existing Wayspot for it to be included in Pokémon GO compared to Ingress.

    Thanks for understanding.
