A Pokemon Go festival was held in Grant Park, Chicago, on July 22, to celebrate one year since the popular app was launched. However, fans were left disappointed as a glitch in the app meant they were not able to use the augmented reality game. The glitch resulted in some Pokemon fans attending the event not being able to log on to the game at all. The app’s developer, Niantic, was forced to issue a statement saying that all those who registered for the festival would receive a full refund as well as $100 credit to use on the Pokemon Go App, according to the Chicago Tribune. John Hanke, CEO of Niantic, was booed when he walked on stage to address the crowd of disappointed fans. Credit: Instagram/ashtontheengineer via Storyful
