PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A
0 votes

So I was playing Pokemon GO during that event. I knew I was going to go on the freeway for more than 40 minutes, so I activated a lure. I kept on finding swinubs, and 100% of them fled from me. The weird part is they have a 10% flee rate. After the freeway, I did a little experiment. I actually caught swinubs off the freeway and after the incense wore off. I also caught a shiny swinub too! So my question is: Was the incense glitched? Or was this all because of the freeway?

Are you asking whether the incense caused them to flee?

Not sure exactly what you mean by "going on the freeway" but if you were in a car then Pokemon would be more likely to run from you. In Go, Pokemon often run if you move far away from where they spawned.

I never saw any reports of item glitches during that community day (or any other CD tbh). So you may have just been unlucky.
