Pokemon-go – My Pokemon changed after caught


So, this day I caught Raticate, Goldeen, and Grimer. But after I caught them all, they're suddenly change to completely different Pokemon.

My Raticate turns into Exeggcute, Goldeen into Spearow, and Grimer into Ratatta. Is this a glitch from new update?

This appears to be a bug in the current version (see this german blog). It's not said, wheter only iOS or Android is affected, but for a small amount of players it is possible that they can get a different (also the legendary Arctuino) Pokémon than they caught. Niantic should have fixed this and removed the wrongly distributed Arctuino from the accounts. To now there is no known trigger of the effect.
