Niantic might not have confirmed an official way to restore your Pokemon Go friends list when it crashes, but there’s an easy way to get it to show up again.

There’s a lot for PoGo players to do in the game this Holiday season, with the Season of Heritage replacing the Season of Mischief on December 1.

With that update comes a load of new bonuses to obtain, as well as fresh faces on the Pokedex. One of the biggest showcases will be a Swinub Incense Day, which players will already be looking forward to.
