You need to calm down

This happened to me the other day - I was working in the city for a bit, but had a long lunch, so I was playing on and off all day. After I had my lunch, I was making my way to the train station, which was a good ten minute walk away, so I booted up the game again.I've been hearing about a bug in the game that resets your save game if you log out and in again, is this true? You would get prof Willow again, like in the beginning. If you continue playing then your previous save is lost. Does anyone know more about this?
It loaded faster than usual and I found myself, as you said, talking to Professor Willow. I thought at first it was related to the research tasks so didn't really read it. Then it came to the character selection and I realized that it had restarted the game. I force closed the app and waited a few minutes (worried I had lost everything), but when I started the game up again it loaded my original save with no issues.
I think, as you say, it's definitely a bug of sorts, but I reckon it only restarts fully if you continue and play through the beginning...
I wonder if there is a point at the beginning of the game (maybe once you initially create your character or choose your first Pokémon) where it creates the initial save file, and if you play to that point then it acts as an overwrite of sorts?
