Niantic just recently gave a new client update for Pokémon Go for iOS and android devices. While most of the iOS users are enjoying the game without any problem, some android users are getting an error from the latest update. According to the report, some android users are getting an error when loading the Pokémon Go app.
Pokémon Go Version 0.51.0 Fix
According to the error, some selected android devices can’t successfully load the app after they updated the app to version 0.51.0. The list of devices below are the reported phones and devices that are getting an error for loading the Pokemon Go app.

The list above are the device that are getting an error when loading the app. But not because you have that device, you’ll also get an error. Pokemon Go version 0.51.0 may still run smoothly on your device but it is more prone to bugs and glitches.
Quick Fix For 0.51.0 Loading Error
If you already encountered the error after updating the game to the latest version, here are the few things that you can do to fix it.
- Before you open the Pokemon Go app, turn on your data connection and turn off the GPS location in the settings section. You’ll get past the loading screen but you will get an empty map. In this case, minimize the app and turn on the GPS location again. Return to the app and wait until the app locates your current location.
- Do the same steps above but this time, use your wifi connection instead of your data connection.
- If the two steps above did not work, turn off all your connections and uninstall the app. Reinstall the app again and see if the error still exists.
- Lastly, if all of the mentioned quick fixes above did not work, your last resort is clearing your app data. In the settings of your device, find the app manager. Locate the Pokemon Go app and press “Clear data.” After clearing the app data, reinstall the app.
Most of the Pokemon Go players are expecting for an event this coming Christmas but it seems like Niantic released the update to fix the vibration and day cycle bug which first appear when the baby Pokemon was released.
Pokemon Go version 0.51.0 for android and 1.21.0 for iOS is now available worldwide.
