So we finally updated our iPad mini (as it is no longer receiving OS updates) and we bought a cellular enabled iPad so my son can join us while we're out 'moning.
Yesterday we noticed he was having trouble with giving a berry to a pokemon while trying to catch it. I wanted to check with the community and see if this is something they also experience. He has no issues throwing a ball so I am hesitant to say its the iPad... but if it continues and I get no confirmation that its something odd with the game... I'll probably just return it.
