"Complete the Wayfarer tutorial to unlock!" when I already have completed it.

This morning I submitted a bunch of things via Pokemon Go that I had taken pictures of over the weekend, and after submitting about 5 things, hitting the "New Pokestop" button to begin a new submission gave me this message:

I have previously taken the (old) tutorial and should not have received this message. The message prevented me from continuing to submit Wayspots.

Clicking "Visit Wayfarer" took me to the Wayfarer website home page but did not prompt me to take (or retake) the tutorial. Going back to the Pokemon Go app after this did not register me as having completed the tutorial.

Clicking "maybe later" brought me back to the Pokemon Go menu screen, and reattempting to submit a Pokesrop brought me right back to the above message. The "New Pokestop" button did have a red notification dot though.

Restarting the app did resolve the problem and I was able to continue submitting.

    Exactly the same happened to me. Unfortunately I decided to pass the test, because this was a pretty fast option - I thought.

    Passing the test was quick. But then the nightmare started. First all wayfarer achievements were gone. Second my PoGo wayfarer Badge dropped from Platinum to 0 after 24h.

    At least my Ingress Badge is still ok (after few days).

    I reported a Bug (Ticket 16646230). There is no response, even after 5days.

    My advice: don’t do the test again - it is a bad option.

  • Sorry for attending to your report so late. I am glad to know the issue was resolved for you after restarting the app.

    In case you experience this issue again (applicable for you too @WestGoAnd-PGO), refresh the game data, restart the Pokémon GO app and then try again. In case it still doesn't help, let us know and we'll take a closer look.
