The popular augmented reality game "Pokemon Go", which received first major update a few hours ago, is reported to come with a nasty surprise with it.

Just a few hours ago, the company (via Twitter) confirmed the release of "Pokemon Go" update for both Android (0.31.0) and iOS (v1.1.0) devices. It said the firmware comes with bug fixes during wild Pokémon encounter, minor text bug fix, memory improvement, visually appealing achievement medal images and many more value-added features and more.

However, new reports are coming in that new "Pokemon Go" update is riddled with a bug, which is wiping the Trainer's account details.

Many players who updated "Pokemon Go" are complaining that the AR-game gets stuck in the middle of the game and after they tried to re-login to the game, they receive a message "wrong login details" and asked to create a new account.

Here are some of the complaints posted on Reddit with regard to bug-riddled "Pokemon Go" update:

"Saw one other person with this issue so far. I'm quite concerned, not only because of the hours I've put in but the amount of real money too. I forgot my password (google), clicked "Help", entered the last password I remembered for the account, it logged me in and took me to the new trainer creation screen. Now even after deleting the app and all of its data and reinstalling all I can log into is this "new account" which is linked to the same Gmail address as my level 25 one, so apparently that's been completely wiped and replaced," said a user on Reddit who goes by the moniker, u/obviously_alex.

"I have the exact same issue. Tried changing my characters outfit and the game froze. Closed the app completely and I opened it again to see that it brought me back to the new character screen. Don't really know what to do now," said Royal Musician.
