An odd Pokemon Go glitch is stripping the color from the Candy sprite and ruining the look of it for players around the world.

With neverending updates, community days, and events approaching the wonderful world of Pokemon Go, a few glitches and bugs are to be expected.

After all, no game is perfect and one that has a fanbase as big as this will struggle to let anything fall through the cracks of their perceptive eyes.

One strange Pokemon Go glitch has impacted Pokemon catching for a variety of players. It involves essentially taking away the color from the original design, only showing the blue strips rather than the ball many recognize. The candy blends into the background of the caught popup and frankly looks very odd.
