Stops and gyms disappeared in Pokemon Go

All seven stops and two gyms are disappeared near the town hall of Roding in Germany

All spots are located in the same l14 cell and are still available in Ingress.

It seems that Pokemon Go has a problem to load this map cell

    Although nothing definitive can be said, if there is an Ingress portal but only pokestop and pokémon gyms have disappeared, it is possible that they were removed due to complaints from the land or building owners.

    If this is the case, it would be difficult to restore them.

  • Hey @Ecktown81-PGO,

    This game location was removed at the request of the owner or director of the property, and therefore, we cannot reinstate it at this time.

    I think that Pokemon Go has a problem to load this map cell. If a building owner reports an invalid waypoint, it would be removed in all games. The eight or nine missing spots contains the town hall, a playground and religious sights on public streets. If I open the disappeared gyms in the medal list an endless loading circle appears.

    No, that's not how removal requests work a lot of the time. If a wayspot is in a public location and a local resident or landowner complains about Pokémon Go trainers gathering there (maybe because it's a gym and they're doing a raid, as an example), then the wayspot will be removed from Pokémon Go but not from other Niantic games.

    As @NianticAaron has said, there was a complaint, and it was likely a complaint about Pokémon Go specifically and that's why the wayspots are no longer used in that game.

    Three spots in this area should be deleted, because they are on a locked company area. They should be removed in any game.

    How can I contact Niantic to delete the three invalid spots and restore the other missing six correct stops and gyms in Pokemon Go? The support system of Pokemon Go sucks. They just gave me a link to report invalid spots. They don't read and answer questions correctly.

    I hate to say too much, but please read Aaron's "This location was removed at the request of the owner or director of the location" carefully.

    This means that all the Pokémon GO players who were at the location did something that interfered with the real world of the owner or manager of the location, so the owner or manager asked the Pokémon GO Team to remove it.

    This is not a removal request from a Pokémon GO player in the augmented reality world.

    So at this point, there is no element of it being restored.

    And if you are requesting the removal of an Ingress portal on corporate property, please report it through the Ingress app.

    If the Wayfarer team determines that there is a problem, it will be removed.

    However, I do not know if they will be removed because they are not on private property, just restricted access.
