Niantic has removed 'happy' animations from encounters in Pokemon Go, and some players aren't happy about it at all.

Some Pokemon Go players are disappointed after they realized that the short-lived “happy” animations that played when you clicked on a wild Pokemon have disappeared. Niantic appears to have removed them in the latest update.

This latest criticism of Pokemon Go comes after Exploration Bonuses were removed earlier in August, sparking a wave of mass boycotts from frustrated Trainers unhappy with the change.

In response, Niantic set up a “task force” to figure out how to address player concerns and promises to deliver their findings in early September – perhaps fans will get clearer communication in the future regarding the removal of features like this one.
