Recently many long time players of Pokemon GO have had issues with their account as there is a bug going on behind the scenes that are killing/deleting Pokemon GO accounts for no reason!
This is very shocking and long term players of the game should keep on eye to see if there account gets affected by this at all.
Check out a Redditor who has shared their experience:
I have a friend who has been struggling since just before Christmas to recover his account that has seemingly become corrupted behind the scenes. It does appear that this is not an isolated error, and what’s most disturbing about it is the way that Niantic is not handling it.
Why I’m posting this is to try highlight the fact that Niantic has barely acknowledged that there is an issue in the first place and has shown a worrying trend of just automatically closing these support calls. They are leaving some of their best
customersplayers out in the cold and it can only lead to problems with the game’s longevity.
This is very scary as Niantic even know that this bug is going on and are not doing anything to stop it! They even go as far as ignoring claims in the support line!
This bug also seems to affect gyms with your Pokemon inside them as they further go on to say:
Forgot to mention that one of the side-effects is that if the Player with the lost account had a ‘mon inside a gym, then the gym
becomes unusablecrashes the game of anyone who tries to interact with it, so it’s having a more widespread effect than just removing one player from a community
We recommend that you save any Pokemon you really do not want to lose in the GO Park in Pokemon Lets Go Pikachu/Eevee if you are desperate not to lose them.

Hopefully Niantic or The Pokemon Company addresses this issue fairly quickly.
If we have any more information to share we will cover it here at NintendoSoup so stay tuned for more!
