We look forward to a seamless gaming experience. But unfortunately, errors have always got other plans for us. While the errors can hamper your experience, we can look forward to solving the error. You might often try to open a gift sent by one of your friends. But has it ever happened that while you were trying to open the gift, there’s a Pokémon GO error, which goes by ERROR_GIFT_DOES_NOT_EXIST? What is this error?
In simple words, a player would attempt to open a gift sent by their Friend. But upon opening the package, they are welcomed with an error code, saying that the Gift does not exist. To everyone’s surprise, this gift cannot be found in the Inventory. The items they got from the package get lost. For many Pokémon GO fans, this has been a frustrating experience. As a result, Niantic, through its customer support body, has addressed this issue & currently investigating it as per the Known issues page. However, as Niantic is doing their best to fix the issue, in the meanwhile you can try out these fixes, if that helps you.
Pokémon GO ERROR_GIFT_DOES_NOT_EXIST
Our best shot is to close the game completely and restarting the same. This has got some chance to resolve the bugs that can cause this error. You can clean cache from the app-based storage, which can also potentially fix the same.
Despite this, if the GIFT DOES NOT EXIST error continues, uninstall the game. Therefore, a fresh reinstallation can sometimes help in providing a clean download. This can often bring the files which got missed out for the error. The game would take some time for downloading upon reinstalling. Check if the error persists. We are dependent upon Niantic and waiting for their response to provide a solution for this error, which hampers our gaming experience.
An update can fix the error. Looking at the craze for the upcoming Pokémon GO Fest 2021, Niantic might try to roll out the fix before July 17th.
