I recently installed "Pokemon Go" game in my Redmi Note 4G. The game is working fine. But I noticed something peculiar in my booting screen. It shows up just after the MIUI logo. I took a photo and did a little research and came to know that the logo is of Cubeon, a Pokemon character. I don't know why this is happening. Is there any security issues? How did the app get access to my boot menu?

    Innograpica seems to be an artist that creates boot animations (and other art). Did you install a custom theme too? – Ryan Conrad Jul 15 '16 at 11:55

    Where did you get the app, there is a malware version going around – user1871 Jul 15 '16 at 13:29
  • @user1871 I doubt malware would just mess with the boot animation. Hell, I doubt malware would try to leave a trail at all- it doesn't want to get caught! – Dan Brown Jul 16 '16 at 0:11

  • Possible device compromise—there are quite a few fake versions of Pokémon GO out there. You'd probably want to factory reset the device and reflash the OS. In the future, make sure the developer is listed as Niantic Inc. and that the number of downloads is very large (at least 10M as of this writing). The real app can be downloaded from play.google.com/store/apps/…; the package name is com.nianticlabs.pokemongo. – bwDraco Jul 19 '16 at 23:31

It's not from Niantic, it is the silhouette of the MIUI character head.

It's possible comes with a MIUI theme what you downloaded and applied.

That appears when you install custom themes like in iOS 9 theme (afterglow or retouched I'm not sure), as the theme engine includes options for a theme to change the boot screen.
