    I'm having the same problems. The playing area is black, and so is the potions area. Have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, restarting the phone, nothing works. It sucks this is happening during a brilliant event.

    What is the status of this??? I'm a little over the fact that we can't play due to this ongoing issue and Niantic haven't bothered keeping us up to date. Can we get the money we've spent on this game for this event back?? The continuing glitches since SOS training was introduced is taking the fun out of this game. Why has this black screen issue happened and why after days is it not fixed??????

    Same with Huawei P10, Android 10, EMUI 9.1.0.

    I cannot end event - annoying. You should fix bug (cancel last update maybe?) and extend time availible for this event.

    OK. I still have the same issue. I even u installed it and reinstalled. Still black and the event is coming to an end soon and I have not gotten to play. Has anybody got news on how to get it to work so I can play?

    Screen turns black - no menus or other phone controls visible - after completing a rewards page.

    Issue is intermittent beginning after 2.15 update.

    Moto X Pure Edition

    Android 7

    Battery level greater than 60%

    Hard restart of phone brings back phone screen for an instant before returning to black screen.

    Only fix is to plug phone into charging port before restarting phone.

    Love the game, but tired of constant bugs. Would like to suggest dev team take a break from constant events and focus on cleaning code for a month. -Hibourne

    It's soooooo annoying. I can't play at all. Map is black and so is the potions page.

    Workaround working for me:

    Open the App from App-Overview-screen (NOT Homescreen) every time.

    If this doesn't work: Open the app from play-store every time.

    If this still doesn't work: Change ingame-language after every app-start

    I am on an iphone and am also getting the black screen of death. Once it comes I can’t use the app at all unless I restart my entire phone. It has been happening to me for about the last week.

    I didn't have any issue with the update until TODAY, I opened the game looking forward to complete the bonus assignment from the brilliant event, because the other event start like in 2 days...

    But now the screen goes absolutely BLACK, can't click on foundables, can't retrieve potions, can't do ANYTHING.

    So, how am I gonna finish this event, how am I gonna play the next event?

    If I don't finish the event, I surely doubt that you will allow us to complete the missing pieces...

    yeah, I'm having the same problem, and while I know its small change to getting the game sorted, kinda hacked off at not being able to complete the current event. Especially after the investment of Silver Keys to prepare for the event.

    After downloading the game i had to do the tutorial and even played a bit without the menu buttons and then the screen turned black with just the music is playing. I tried to uninstall and re install the game, cleared cache, etc but the error still persists. I enter the game and after a few seconds it turns black. I'm using a Xiaomi redmi note 9s. Please help :)

    Edit: i was able to resolve the black screen issue by starting the game via app store but the in game menu buttons are still missing.
