Is anyone else having issues with friend monsters?!

So when I go into story missions and go to enter a battle, it normally comes up with the ‘choose your friend monster to aid your team’ selection but recently it’s either been completely skipping that menu and I don’t get a friend monster or it automatically chooses one from my very small friends list??? It’s been doing this for about two days now is it happening to anyone else?

This happened to me today.
