Why Pokemon Go update has players in tears
POKEMON GO fans aren't happy. Some are even in tears.

"I'm trying to stay calm, but why did my Pokemon Go reset and I lost all my levels and Pokemon?! Anyone else have this problem?," another said.

Already, there have been stories emerging on how to restore the game to previous progress levels by using a different login.
One of the biggest complaints by the game's 9.5 million daily users is the removal of the steps counter.
It told users how far they had to walk to find the nearest monsters.
There have been some positive changes, including being able to re-customise their character, something that was only available during the opening sequence.

Pokémon move stats have also been rebalanced to make gyms fairer, while spawn locations for the digital creatures have also been changed.
There is also a new "lock" which prevents players accidentally swapping their best Pokémon for candy.
There are also numerous warnings including "Don't drive and play Pokémon Go" and "Don't trespass".
