Pokémon GO events always come with a chance of things going wrong. Often they don’t and fans have a great time battling and catching Pokémon. But sometimes there are issues, as is expected with such a huge and massively popular mobile game with innovative features and extremely complex systems. And so, when things do go wrong Niantic tries to make it right, often with makeup events for those impacted. This is the case for the Burn Drive Genesect raid hour in Pokémon GO, with a makeup event coming later today for some regions.
