Here's a little remedy for "Pokemon GO" players who have been affected by the login issues that has been recently plaguing the game. The ongoing "#Solstice Event" has been extended for another 24 hours and will end today after Niantic decided to give players more time to capture #Fire And Ice type of Pokemon.

It's not quite the fix that most fans might believe is appropriate, but it's a benefit for game players who are still on the lookout for those precious fire and ice types of Pokemon that aren't that easy to find. The "Solstice Event" was launched last Tuesday, June 13, and was set to conclude yesterday, June 20. However, Niantic has gone on to extend the event for another day, so it's now ending today after login issues were reported by various players.

Login issues being addressed by Niantic

According to Polygon, there were several login issues experienced by "Pokemon GO" players in the last week. The issues began on June 18, when some Trainers who were using the Pokemon Trainer Club could not access the app on Android. Niantic staffer took to Reddit to share that they are already working on addressing such issues in time for the highly anticipated "Pokemon GO Fest" this July, in celebration of the game's first anniversary.
