Pokémon GO
Description
NEW! It’s time to interact with your Pokémon like never before—Pokémon GO has recently introduced GO Snapshot! Taking AR photos is a snap with this easy-to-use update. You’re now able to take photos of any Pokémon you have in your collection. Document your adventures by taking photos of your favorite Pokémon to share with friends or as a memento of your epic journey. Join Trainers across the globe who are discovering Pokémon as they explore the world around them. Pokémon GO is the global gaming sensation that has been downloaded over 850 million times and named "Best Mobile Game" by The Game Developers Choice Awards and "Best App of the Year" by TechCrunch. Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokémon have been discovered! Pokémon are out there, and you need to find them. As you walk around a neighborhood, your smartphone will vibrate when there’s a Pokémon nearby. Take aim and throw a Poké Ball… You’ll have to stay alert, or it might get away! Search far and wide for Pokémon and items Certain Pokémon appear near their native environment—look for Water-type Pokémon by lakes and oceans. Visit PokéStops and Gyms—found at interesting places like museums, art installations, historical markers, and monuments—to stock up on Poké Balls and helpful items. Catching, hatching, evolving, and more As you level up, you’ll be able to catch more-powerful Pokémon to complete your Pokédex. You can add to your collection by hatching Pokémon Eggs based on the distances you walk. Help your Pokémon evolve by catching many of the same kind. Choose a Buddy Pokémon to walk with and earn Candy that will help you make your Pokémon stronger. Compete in epic Gym battles You’ll join one of three teams and battle for the ownership of Gyms with your Pokémon at your side. As your Charmander evolves to Charmeleon and then Charizard, you can battle together to defeat a Gym and assign your Pokémon to defend it against all comers. Team up to defeat powerful Raid Bosses A Raid Battle is a cooperative gameplay experience that encourages you to work with up to 20 other Trainers to defeat an extremely powerful Pokémon known as the Raid Boss. If you succeed in defeating it in battle, you’ll have the chance to catch an extra powerful Pokémon of your own! It’s time to get moving—your real-life adventures await!

What is Pokémon go?
by Wolf Of Saturn 6 on 2019/04/18 20:37
This game is only called Pokémon go because it has Pokémon, other than that it is not related the Pokémon games
Bad for me
by takemetopairs2309 on 2019/04/18 20:35
So I had this app a couple times now and today I spent one hour trying to login and it would not let me have a new account and kept on saying that I need to do this with my password and it made me so mad because I was listening to what it said and I followed the instructions and it still kept leading me back to I had started and when I first got this app I loved it cause it actually let me sign it but unfortunately this time it would not let me get back on my feet on time be for a I had wrote a review like this and it started to make me really mad cause of what it was doing and i wish I wrote a good not saying how good this app is but no so plz fix this problems and you will get a good review next time form me
A Shame To The Pokemon Brand
by Great Card Details! on 2019/04/18 20:28
If a Garbadour and a Ditto had an egg, this would be it. Since the inception of the app, the Trainer Club Account login service continues to be problematic with an infamous error called “GPS Signal Not Found (11)”, or the uncontrollable “Login Failed.” The Trainer Club servers are so unstable and unpredictable that they might as well have been transferred to the Google data, and shut down altogether. If you have a cellular data plan just for this app, you can already go ahead and cancel it. Or you could go home as usual, and pretend like this app doesn’t exist. Why, you ask? Because it’s a waste of time on an unfixable bug. This app is best played on Wi-Fi, and apparently runs for Trainer Club Accounts on Wi-Fi only. Not only that, but consider where you live before downloading this app, or spending any money to gamble on catching them all. If you live in a residential area with no pokestops or gyms for miles on end, prepare for trouble. Without leeching off a friend’s gifts every day, you will not be capable of receiving any pokeballs to catch so much as a pikachu with a high flee ratio. Legendary Gym battles? Surely you jest! No one in a small town could manage, much less bother with a 45k CP raid. Raids are just as dumb, pointless, and unrewarding as gym battles. Have fun spinning disks all day... if there are any.
I have a question for you
by JohnnyIreland22 on 2019/04/18 18:47
I have one question for you is that how do you make an account on it no joke I tried to make one and it loaded for 40 minutes I couldn’t wait for it to load any more please help me get an account.

Terrible game doesn’t work 75% of the time
by hatethisapp1500 on 2019/04/18 18:31
This is a stupid, slow loading game 4/17/2019 not working again why am I even surprised.
Requests??
by Leo4877 on 2019/04/18 18:15
Would it, in any way, be possible to update the game to where when we battle with our friends we could do it in AR mode?? That would be awesome!!
Does NOT work!! Just stays stuck with the “Loading” icon spinning on ALL devices and ALL platforms
by asttn3 on 2019/04/18 17:13
My daughter was very excited to play this game and she was having trouble logging in in the website as well as the app. So I tried logging in on my computer AND iPhone 8 Plus and that did the same thing... Sooo then I downloaded the app on my phone and tried logging in and it STILL just sits on the login screen “Loading” and neither of us have yet to get any further after MANY unsuccessful attempts on multiple devices MANY times!! We even tried reinstalling the app and no luck there either...This is very frustrating and just makes her not want to play this anymore because it’s not worth the wasted time and frustration and the time spent getting NOWHERE🙄😡

bueno pero...
by malexgope on 2019/04/18 15:41
el juego es interesante y en general entretenido, pero tiene fallos en sus mecánicas. las monedas a veces se suman y a veces no (he perdido cientos de monedas solo porque no se acumularon). a veces camino varios km pero nunca salen los huevos porque cuando reviso su información dice que llevan 0/1km aunque haya caminado mas de 3km. siento que eso arruina el juego completamente.
Shiny
by vmharrison84 on 2019/04/18 15:23
Not enough shiny spawn, especially during events. Currently we have the bunery, jigglypuff, event, but no shines over 400 pokemon caught, and still none.
Shouldn’t still be having these problems
by rehcralam on 2019/04/18 14:39
Played since release and the game still has many bugs that haven’t been fixed since the beginning, they need to reinvest in actually making this game better
Hatch Pokemon Egg
by Superikemon on 2019/04/18 14:28
Soon after I got off work at 3pm I notification for Pokémon Go saying Egg about to hatch soon I got on Pokémon Go I didn’t see my egg hatch into a Pokémon what happened with that
Great game!!
by childishgavin0 on 2019/04/18 14:24
This review is merely to offer a small suggestion that a few players, and myself, have thought up. We believe the entire community would benefit from the ability to see when other trainers are near you “in-app” and without being a friend. In example, I live in a less than perfect neighborhood, and can never be sure if anyone is out raiding or doing group events. This is where the social tracker would come into effect, allowing me to see “pings” or datapoints that represent other players in my area, in real-time, on the games already advanced mapping system. Other than that, the game is beautiful and runs perfectly!
One of the best games around!
by Cinnamon toaster on 2019/04/18 13:38
This game came a long way from it’s unfortunate start. The developers constantly improve the game with new content and features that make the game extremely fun and fresh. While it isn’t perfect, Pokémon go is one of my favorites and always will be a blast to play.
Can we please trade or battle far away from our freinds?
by PJ5533 on 2019/04/18 13:08
My freinds live far away and i never get to see them as much but can there be a thing were you could battle or trade them far away once a week? But it will cost 25,000 stardust to do it
No one plays
by Oblivious 23 on 2019/04/18 12:28
No one in my area ever plays the game, need an app to communicate to people where raids are at, every time I go to a legend raid no one is around, if you battle the Pokémon by yourself should lower the CP of the Legendary Pokémon, the fewer the People the less the CP should be, very unfair game when no one plays in your area.
Niantic still allows pokemon to be named slurs
by Evielemental on 2019/04/18 09:32
This is totally unacceptable.
Good overall, needs improvement.
by Thatbandkiddude on 2019/04/18 04:16
I have been playing Pokémon go since it first came out in 2016 and think that overall it’s a great game. I loved when they added in gyms, raids, friends, pvp, etc. The current gym reward system is not good in my opinion. The old system allowed players to be rewarded for all the time they spend in a gym, but now we are only rewarded for about 2 hours of holding a single gym and we can only collect the rewards once we are kicked out of the gym. I understand that changing back to the old system for gym rewards would basically eliminate in-app purchases, but there needs to be a change. If I am strong enough to hold 8 gyms for 2 days a piece, I should be rewarded with more than 50 pokecoins for those gyms. Another suggestion is to allow trainers to give other trainers items from their inventory, i.e. I have 1 of every evolution item but I do not need them; my friends need them so instead of just deleting them out of my inventory I’d rather give them away to my friends. One small issue I have is that occasionally the app does not track my location accurately while I am using it, causing my character to run around sporadically until it finally settles on where I am actually located. I have also noticed that no matter what the weather conditions are outside, Pokémon go gives me the hazardous weather conditions notification when I open the app. I get that this is Indiana and the weather changes at the drop of a hat, but today it was 65 and sunny. I also wish EX raid gyms had a slightly different appearance that way you could know that it was an EX raid gym before getting close to the gym. I love the current friendship system, as it encourages me to interact with my friends who also play the game. I have a large group of friends who play and we are constantly sending gifts to each other. While I do like that we can buy bag and storage upgrades with pokecoins, I also wish it could be part of the awards for leveling up. Many times I have leveled up and subsequently ran out of item storage space due to the rewards. If we could get extra storage equal to the amount of items we receive it would allows us not to be forced to delete some of the reward items we receive from leveling up. I have a slight issue with the chance of shiny Pokémon during events in which we’re told we can catch shiny Pokémon. During the current Eggstravaganza event, we’re told we can catch shiny buneary but out of the 59 buneary I have caught, not a single one has been shiny. That does not include the 10 I have fled from because they were not shiny. In events where we are told we have a chance to encounter a shiny, the chance should be at worst 1:50, and I’d say at best 1:25. Other than the few issues I mentioned, Pokémon go is an overall great game who I would suggest to anyone.
Game needs to expand
by aimaferd on 2019/04/18 03:44
I was never in to Pokémon as a kid(I know, gasp.) but started playing Pokémon to connect with my husband. We played in the first town we lived in and then second. We just moved a third time and are in shock that we live in a bigger city and there aren’t nearly as many stops or gyms. We are at a hotel before we can get into a house and there is no way that I can get to a stop safely by foot..... and we are on a Main Street.... we are very disappointed.
What I think about Pokémon go!
by pokemonlover744 on 2019/04/18 03:03
What I think about Pokémon go is it is an amazing opportunity to catch amazing rare and legendary Pokémon. When I am playing Pokémon go I feel like Pokémon are really Real! I have only one question about Pokémon go can you upgrade it to where you can design your own team and design your own Pokémon. This is what I think is so amazing about Pokémon GO. Thank you for listening to I have to say about Pokémon go!
☹️
by Galefan on 2019/04/18 02:46
I love Pokémon go but I set up my account and it wouldn’t let me sign in I spent hours watching the poké ball just spin back and forth
Good game but alolan Pokémon
by Someonehfs on 2019/04/18 02:12
In the Pokédex it won't let me see the normal form of Pokémon and only shows the alola form.
Thanks Niantic
by usecodetfue on 2019/04/18 01:41
I am always walking around and getting the exercise I should be getting I am so happy that this game is here right now and I hope it never leaves the App Store thank you Niantic for what the game has provided.
The poses
by 7/8Time on 2019/04/18 00:52
I love the game (I have been collecting cards since 2012, so this was really cool for me) but there are a few problems with the female poses. 1: the glasses are all messed up on the first two poses of the female avatar. Please fix! 2: the backpacks are messed up on a few of the poses on both genders. 3: I would like a truly “idle” pose. The “idle” pose for the women has more weight on the right foot, and I would like an evenly-distributed weight pose, like the male “idle” pose. The new poses are even “sexier” and as a younger teenager and an activist, I don’t want a sexy character. Make this new pose and I know at least two people who would make the purchase.
Coin daily limit
by smartazz22 on 2019/04/18 00:28
I love this game!! I have been playing since the first week of its release.Only a few things need to change back! My major issue, what is up with the daily limit of coins!!!? 50 per day!?!?! That’s such bulls***!!! I’m thinking of not playing because it seems to me that you guys are pushing for a “pay to play” game! I want to give a 5 star review but I just can’t because of my “pay to play” feeling. You guys need to fix that daily limit! I had six gyms over eight hours each and got only 50 coins total!!
boycott
by Cool foool on 2019/04/18 00:21
They should’ve never banned global plus plus I will not be downloading this app again:-/ at least I don’t have to play it anymore #freeatlast
Every bug fix causes 2 more to appear.
by funma on 2019/04/17 23:47
Niantic takes no time to fix game breaking bugs. For instance, they have known there is an issue with Adventure Sync feature and distance tracking for at least a month and have nothing to correct it. Then they start and even that is heavily reliant on distance tracking without acknowledging the issue. Maybe one day the cash flow will slow and they’ll finally take time to fix the game. Until then, not my cup o tea.
I love Pokémon go!
by jaylenrules on 2019/04/17 22:54
Amazing! Wonderful! Great! Thank you!
Addictive
by ChosenOne-PokeMaster on 2019/04/17 22:00
The game has definitely improved throughout the years. I’m playing it more than when it first came out!
Not bad

Niantic Kids
by Luvgirltweengamesh on 2019/04/17 21:07
So, I see you added Niantic Kids, but here’s the thing. I’m not going to make another account and lose all my Pokémon, and I know for sure my brother isn’t either. So can you make a way to transfer it or just add it to Pokémon Trainer Club. Thanks (maybe).
Server connection

Anyone else having issues with loading pass the Loading screen or freezing
Won’t load
by Noname!9 on 2019/04/17 20:57
The app will not authenticate my user name and password now. It’s been that way for well over a week, so cannot play at all. The one it did log me in was late at night, then wouldn’t authenticate the next morning. What’s going on with your servers???
A little weird.
by unizap on 2019/04/17 20:36
It will say it is raining, when it will be completely sunny. That is weird. Also, how do you expect us to evolve a magicarp for a mission? There are barely any out there. Right now I like the game, but can we get 100 coins a day instead of 50? 50 seems a little small. I love Pokémon I have cards, I watch the TV, and, now I play 2 Pokémon games. And one is yours. And why is there blue and yellow clothing but no red? And can you make one pair of glasses free? We need different hair styles because what if a boy wears a ponytail or something? I think you should dress your buddies too, you could buy the clothes and it would be really cool. Also, how can weather be dangerous while it is merely slightly cloudy out? And if you beat a big raid with people you almost can never get the Pokémon! It is a good game overall though it crashes but it just needs a update and then it will be 5 star. -PowerKitten12
Will not work
by Laccrosse on 2019/04/17 19:51
I was just starting and I tried to catch a Pokémon and it did not work. I tried a bunch of times and all it did was say that it’s not working right now. It needs to have a bug update our it won’t work.
3 Years later - still have server issues
by RAGE-inator on 2019/04/17 19:47
Aside from being very redundant and repetitive, the game rewards players who pay with real money over non-paying players. There is no sure-fire way to obtain in-game currency at a decent rate. It is a pay-to-win scenario. The servers are absolutely abysmal and they become even worse during events/raids, to the point of the game failing to load until the event/raid is over. Would not recommend to any Pokémon fan unless they are a fan of being constantly disappointed and infuriated.
Chatting
by mateo im 9 on 2019/04/17 19:11
Hi so I was eating pizza and I met this guy who also played Pokémon go and ill probably never eat there again so I’m asking if u could make an update where you can chat with you’re friends if their far away
Just lost a legendary Pokémon
by ZacRalNase on 2019/04/17 17:35
I spent months finishing a the research missions and I got a Pokémon out of it. It was a rock type and my friend told me it was legendary. All of a sudden the game just decided to crash and when I logged back on all of the rewards were gone and I didn’t get to keep the legendary.
Very lame
by Joselb09 on 2019/04/17 16:49
I mean what’s the point in having berries if they don’t even work?!?! What’s the point in having friends when they don’t even send gifts!?!? What’s the point when pretty much we run into the same Pokémon over and over and over!?!? I can’t simply leave my city to go look for Pokémon! I mean this game has so much more to develop! You are loosing a long term Pokémon fan. Truly yours
Great exercise app for a while
by Kurotsubasa on 2019/04/17 16:43
Disappointed in legendary capture rate. Quit after spent 10 bucks. I want my money back.
Great for all ages!
by Skrapalicious on 2019/04/17 14:37
It was a great game to play side by side with my daughter who didn’t grow up with Pokémon like my generation did and now we watch the show together now too after our walks. Keeping the game simplified helps with this core interaction rather than convoluting the game with too much intricacies as I see a lot of older players complaining about. For a free game of such a popular franchise you all should just be grateful and enjoy the exercise and interaction with others. I have met people all over of all ages by going to raids, catching Pokémon in public places like the mall, the post office, parks, etc. The game is continually updated and upgraded, Niantic has done a great job with this one.
Super Pokémon go
by Frozenextreme22 on 2019/04/17 14:35
Me and my boyfriend play Pokémon go all the time it’s such a fun game! I recommend everyone that loves Pokémon to get the app. It gets you to spend more time with your friends and with your partner. It also gets you to go outside and get steps and exercise. Go Pokémon go!
Annoyed
by jkent37 on 2019/04/17 13:54
Overall easy and fun. But if you are like most you won’t like the game. I live in a small place so to get all to cool Pokemon in gyms is almost impossible. The power of them are too strong so I will never be able to catch them. And only boring things spawn around me because of where I live. Easy and fun at first but gets boring, and you will never be able to win raids.
5 STARS FOR EPICNESS
by Jhedjshdishdishi on 2019/04/17 13:13
BEST GAME EVER!!! One thing though...you should be able to get eggs from Pokestops even if your bag is full. I walk so much that I get all the free poke balls from the rewards, and I can no longer get eggs anymore. If you spin pokestops you should at least get eggs if your bag is full. EVERYTHING ELSE IS AMAZING!!!!

Can no longer evolve
by 76687sss on 2019/04/17 10:04
Can no longer evolve Pokémon. Uninstalled and reinstalled, evolved one and now it closes the window again.
I don’t know what’s the hold up
by Dude It! on 2019/04/17 08:36
This game won’t even let me login! I made the account, which took forever because it kept deleting my password. Then I tried to login with my new account. It kept saying that the account never existed. I know it exists I’m not stupid. This game is frustrating in the beginning. I don’t know if the rest is because I can’t login!! Do not get this game unless you are prepared to spend 2 hours making an account.
Question
by Frankk Oceann on 2019/04/17 07:34
I started playing the day this game first aired. It was awesome. Since then, I pick it up every now and then but still kinda butt hurt that I’m level 25 and still haven’t even gotten a single 10K egg yet... is it just my luck or...?
Bugged
by Bbalby44 on 2019/04/17 06:33
Can’t evolve Pokémon unless caught that same day. Been playing since day one and this needs to be fixed

#letusbattle
by Head5up on 2019/04/17 02:22
So, I love the game. I went from sitting behind a television all day playing Xbox, to pulling an average of 100 km of activity a week. I almost have zero complaints. My only complaint is, in the gameboy version of Pokémon, one would battle any trainer that passed line of sight. I feel, as do many of my other friends who play, the ability to battle other players should be granted at Good Friends. Imagine a day like Community Day, and you make all kinds of new friends, send one gift become Good Friends. Boom let us battle!

I have unsubscribed from emails 6 times now and they keep emailing me. It is extremely annoying that my inbox is flooding with notifications for a game I don’t even play anymore. I can’t disable emails from games in settings, so I don’t know what to do. Never ever sign up for emails
Love it but needs some stuff
by catttei on 2019/04/17 02:08

Love this game, but plz help
by Dhope Jro on 2019/04/16 23:29
Hey, I have became a heavy Pokémon Go player. I absolutely love this game, but something highly irritated me. I watched both my best friends catch a ditto with a poke ball. I threw and ultra ball, it gave one shake popped out and fled. A day or two later my brother hopped on and caught a ditto who quit playing. I traded for two, but they didn’t count towards getting Mew. Soon as I catch a ditto I’m spending more money on this game. Please randomly select and send a few dittos in my path, Thankyou.
Apple should pull the app
by panza gato on 2019/04/16 23:19
The app kicks you out of the capture scene right before you can catch a legendary pokemon (in my case, Latios) as though it’s having trouble loading, but it does it with full reception. When you complain to the developer, the bot gives you a false message that somebody will contact you soon, but nobody ever does. It’s a scam to charge people money to invest in game play, block them from getting difficult achievements, and refuse to even allow people access to tech support to fix the problem. Apple should pull the app from the store until they stop intentionally defrauding customers.

Good game
by zigzagoonbella on 2019/04/16 22:58
It is a great game, I have to admit, but I have one question: Do you get a stamp if you complete two field research and claim them on the same day, do you get two stamps?
Make so you can trade the same Pokémon more than once
by Ugh hhk on 2019/04/16 22:27
Trading is a great thing to complete a Pokédex but if you trade so you can trade it with another account but you can’t that is dumb because then you can’t get it for the other account witch pist me off and now I can’t trade a kabutops or a cloyster so plz make it so you can trade the same Pokémon more than once
I’m mad at you

RAIDS ARE TRASH
by ClashMan01374828 on 2019/04/16 21:24
Guaranteed LOSS when doing a raid!
Awesome game but one flaw
by thecrazys1imeYT on 2019/04/16 21:15
So I LOVE the idea of putting a Pokémon game and a excersise game together; I love that it gives you WARNINGS before you play; I love the events in it; the only problem is that it needs internet. See, I am not old enough to get a job, therefore I have no data service or whatever, and I basically live in the forest, so the internet is horrible. If the game creators are reading this, please make it to where you can play without internet, so that when you connect to internet, you’re data saves.
Since I purchased in-game currencies...
by Linerd0704 on 2019/04/16 20:45
That should mean I am entitled to at least some customer services? Instead what I got was a cold message of “we won’t be able to provide personalized response to the bug you reported”. But the bug that I reported affected my gameplay and caused me losses, not just some inconvenience. The most recent one being an app disconnection that glitched all my friends out of the catching screen of a raid boss and we were put into the lobby again despite having finished the raid and getting the items. I guess Niantic wouldn’t even give me back my raid pass.
Great game BUT
by jordan craker on 2019/04/16 20:43
I wish that you had a option that it would let you not have to walk you could gest sit down and you could tap and the character would walk where you tapped Pokemon Go please add this to the game a lot more people would play the game!
👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼😍😍😍😍😍

I love this game! Can’t stop playing!
Truly love this game... just wish...
by Hijrjsiduusuususu on 2019/04/16 20:40
I love this game it is truly amazing since I was really late into the Pokémon playing experience (parent not letting me have it). Ever since a kid I always wanted a ditto AND I FOUND ONE. I was so happy but then the ban on ditto in pvp came around and I couldn’t find many times to use my ditto in gym battles since I’m always moving. So I just wish there were more opportunities to use this Pokémon. Other than that this game is truly great and I recommended it to all my friends. Keep up the good work Niantic!
They should add styles of hair
by BigAdamAndLittleAdam on 2019/04/16 20:40
Instead of having one set of hair they should have more I’m kinda getting bored of the same hair over and over again like every time I see the hair I’m like again With the weird hair I mean if your trying to get to look like ash’s it doesn’t really look like it so if you would have more hair and if you do make it free. So if you would at it please that would be a great update
New Feature Request
by Kryptyyk on 2019/04/16 20:31
I grew up on Pokémon, and it’s one of my favorite game franchises! Although this game had a rough start on its release it’s become a favorite of mine. And with the emphasis on waking and eggs in the game, I think adding some sort of breeding feature would be awesome! They could make it to where you can only put 2 Pokémon at a time in the “breeding” section, and after a time period (depending on rarity and general power of the Pokémon) they would produce an egg with varying distance needed to hatch based on the species, rarity, and power of the parents. This would be an awesome feature if added!
Niantic strikes again.
by DaRussian2 on 2019/04/16 20:26
I recently went back to the game after they fixed its constant crashing. Today I raided to get a Latios, when out of nowhere it was a Shiny Latios!!!!! However, apparently 4g LTE network triggers connection errors that prevent me from catching the GUARANTEED Shiny Latios. I checked my box to see if it gave it to me and it didn’t. The worst part is that the group I was raiding with told me the Shiny Latios was guaranteed. I had hopes of claiming my 1st Shiny legendary. But I was sadly mistaken. I would appreciate it if you would give me the guaranteed Shiny legendary I should have caught today.
I hate you
by Robarooski on 2019/04/16 20:26
The game lets me download it then crushes my dreams of playing it by telling me that I'm outdated even though I'm supposed to of been told that before I downloaded it
If there was more Pokestops In my area
by AlphaDawn7 on 2019/04/16 20:25
I wish I had more Pokestops in my area I can’t get any Pokeballs soo I’m out
Purchase in store
by jimmyandfabio on 2019/04/16 20:03
Hello, I can’t make in app purchase probably because of my iTunes account is link to someone’s so please fix it so I don’t have to do it on someone’s else’s phone.
Freezes
by WillowIvoryRose on 2019/04/16 19:48
I don’t tend to write reviews. But I’ve been playing Pokémon go came out and for the past month it continues to freeze on me and it gets frustrating. Also I have to force close it and even when I reopen it still does not work.
Could Be Better
by Nik7319 on 2019/04/16 18:37
Everything was going great and I love the game but I gave it low stars because I had not been able to evolve any of my Pokémon nor has my steps been accurately accounted for.
Pokeballs should regenerate!! 😩
by hernameisnotknown on 2019/04/16 18:16
I miss this game 😭 I’d had this app installed less than a day, but my poor aiming skills and knack for attracting troublesome pokemon who required multiple attempts, I ran out of Pokeballs! I live in a remote location and don’t currently have transport, so can’t get more anytime soon. 👎 But there’s so much room for improvement on this app- I finally downloaded it after all this time and hype and the graphics are so poor and totally lack detail. There’s no notification feature that lets you know when a Pokemon is nearby when you have the app closed- maybe it could make the sound that Pokemon makes! And it should make sense where Pokemon are, based on where they’d be found naturally. Oh and you should be able to tag a Pokemon- if you’re out of Pokeballs or think it’s too powerful for the ones you have or you don’t have a treat to calm it- and then you could have the satisfaction of finding it again.
Really fun, but PLS fix network/GPS error
by Cknight2 on 2019/04/16 18:12
I have been having fun playing this game with friends and family, but with the new update the app is useless and if not fixed soon I’ll have to delete it so it’s not wasting space on my home screen. Please fix this for the players that truly enjoy the app. Still worth 5 stars, but currently broken :(
Great But...
by CoolCreeper594 on 2019/04/16 17:56
Overall, this game is awesome. What i don’t like though is the fact that some of the Pokemon evolutions are missing. For example, the eeveelutions sylveon, glaceon, and leafeon are not in this game. They have several updates where they upgraded things like gyms and pokestops, but they never fixed this problem. Again, I would totally recommend this app to other people, but this stuff is annoying and needs to be fixed.
Found a bug with the new pose system
by Hero of our time Chrom on 2019/04/16 16:25
So, I put my character on a pose that I haven’t bought yet, and I switched it back to the default pose, and the Pokeball was still in the trainer’s hand, and the only way I know how to fix it is to switch any article of clothing. I will be happy to change my rating to five stars once this bug is fixed.
Go away xy
by malachi dab 6451 on 2019/04/16 16:07
Much better with just old school characters
Unable to log in on the app.
by flyingajoshi on 2019/04/16 15:30
Can the developer reach out to me as to why I can’t log in to the app with my new account but I can log in to the website? Very frustrating as 2 family members are ready to play but I can’t join in. I also tried requesting a password reset (even though I know the password & am able to log in on the web) but it says it cannot resend. What is the solution? Thanks.
Please

I would love a joystick because it’s safer and I get sick a lot so I barely have time to get outside and walk
I can’t evolve anything!
by Roxy5. on 2019/04/16 11:31
Don’t know what happened in the last couple days but sadly I can’t evolve anything.
Add a joystick
by RYRYSome on 2019/04/16 11:23
This game needs a joystick so you don’t have to walk around all the time

Storage Capacity
by KBarnes55 on 2019/04/16 10:33
Please please please increase the max storage, most of the time I don’t bother playing is because I’m stirring at 1990/2000 Pokemon with none I care to transfer. Would make the game a lot more enjoyable (& make you more money too)
I like

Should be called PokemonGo 2.0
by Lu adjust on 2018/12/09 15:45
This game had a rocky start. It was super popular and the servers couldn’t handle it. Now the developers push a new event almost all the time. Getting mew was fun and challenging(Ditto). Celebi and Spiritomb were arduous to obtain but Meltan has been extremely challenging because I don’t have a Nintendo switch. They have also pulled off some very awesome community days once a month where you get a similar ambiance to when the game first came out. Tons of people playing! They also used one of them to introduce a new mythical Pokémon in a very creative way. I have enjoyed the new raid and research updates. We just need more ways to get silver pinaps. Trading has been introduced to the game in a way that doesn’t ruin it and trading rare Pokémon with strangers is costly but with people you interact with daily it’s cheap. The game is mostly free to play but I have personally spent some money on it. There was an egg event and I wanted more incubators. Anyways I wasn’t ever forced to buy anything and it isn’t like other apps where they throw sales in your face as pop ups every time you log in. You can earn 50 in game coins per day without paying a dime but that can be drastically easier or harder based on where you live. In the past year this game has drastically changed into something truly addictive and fun to play. I can’t wait to see what they bring to the game next year.
I’m always outside, thanks Niantic!
by vivalagloria! on 2018/08/09 15:22
I am loving all of the events and things we have to look forward to. Community days were a great idea. Friends and trading were wonderful updates that added a lot to the game, though I wish that there was an option to toggle off the exact location and map directions in the gift you send people. Even better if you could turn on/off per friend level or even individual friends as well as an all on/off. Also, if you could create a kind of lure for gyms where raids are happening, and nearby players could see that and head over because they know people are there to raid. Lure could last 5-10min so people can wait for it to run out (and if they don’t want to wait, they don’t use the lure). And nearby players can view the raid and leave like a thumbs up or thumbs down so others know someone is on their way. The GO community has really come together and made raid planning possible in a lot of places, but this would be more inclusive to those that haven’t joined their local community or that live rurally and have a hard time getting enough people. These are just suggestions for improvements to an already amazing game that I am pretty happy with, Pokémon GO has come a long way since those first several months of release where I always seemed to be annoyed at Niantic. So, well done :)
Suggestion
by marsyuu on 2018/11/27 19:50
I’ve played Pokémon games over 20 years. Pokémon Go is a great mobile game that combines entertainment and daily health keeping. However, as a Pokémon game, it needs more interactivity between people. Many people are waiting for PVP since the first day when the game has lunched. The current mechanics seems pretty simple (horizontal swipe, no special attack/defense, no Mega Evolution/form change, etc). For example, Deoxys and Giratina have multiple forms base on the original design, but not just catch them separately (without form change function). It looks like they are different Pokémon, but not the one who has ability to change form. Also, some Pokémon colors are weird after Niantic uses Unity 3D as game engine (e.g. Staryu). Also, Niantic should make more choices for the Style function. If people can change their in-game hair, face or add more item will be better. Finally, John Hanke has mention he is trying to bring all Niantic games to the mainland China, but it seems like not very easy. People can understand Chinese market has different policy, but it could corporate with big companies such us Tencent or NetEase to open the market. Hope people in the mainland China can play Pokémon Go as same as Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. This valuable IP made by Nintendo and Game Freak should allow everyone can join it before copy cats occupy the market. Thank you.
Great Game BUT........
by canine baker on 2018/07/17 13:28
This is a wonderful game, great to get people out and moving I definitely recommend it for people who live in populated areas and towns BUT if you live in the rural areas and the country sides of this country where service is spotty and where they placed most all the stops and gyms there is NO SERVICE then playing this game is almost worthless. As a player moving from the city to the country it almost leaves me no choice but to quit or almost forget about the game, sad because I’m a paying player. I read how Niantic was working hard at trying to come up with a resolution for RURAL players but every update and addition to the game benefits populated players. Even trying to contact help support and Niantic is a waste of time, all you will get is a return email where someone will just copy and paste the same answers over and over again, if you cared to do something about this critical issue then maybe taking a moment and conversing with the rural players may help. I hate to have to leave this game but Niantic does not seem to care if they lose their rural players and that is so sad as if you maybe took the time to work with rural players the issue could be resolved, I say to the populated players get out and have an awesome time playing this game and don’t complain about adding a couple bucks to the game it is a lot cheaper then a night out to the movies and a lot more fun with the family! Signed The forgotten rural players!
Great game but more content plz
by 5 STAR!!!!!!!!<3 on 2018/05/03 21:05
I love the game and its easy to use interface but I and all of my friends at school agree that your amazing game lacks some necissary content to be a truly great game. I belive you should add trading pokemon above all else and along with that casual battles with near by players. Now for my personal favorite addition is that some people have a daily struggle with living in a small town like mine where there is literaly 1 pokestop in all of town and you never go near it so that results in having a very limited supply of poke balls which is by far the most important item in the game because without them you cant catch anything which results in the lack of xp which means you cant level up. You cant get good cp pokemon (much less pokemon at all) which means no gyms or raids. To combat this major issue I propose you and some sort of daily spin or add more pokestops and gyms. Now I doubt you (the devs) will see this much less read it all but if you do I greatly appreciate it. Thank you as I hope this may help bring life back into this once amazing and well played game. P.S. ( I am saying this not only to make this game more fun for me but all of the friends I play this game with are compaining about a few of these issues and I would like to continue playing the game with the game with them as this is the only game I play and I fear they may quit playing if you do not add content. )
Good but could be better
by Ravenlunatyk on 2018/04/25 01:08
I’ve been playing almost since the beginning and am a daily player. Love the research tasks. I do however think niantic is a bit greedy. Let me start off by saying I buy coins at least once a month if not more during special events. With that said can you tell me why it takes me five balls to catch a 112 weedle? I’m level 38. I should catch them with the first ball. I don’t mind it head butting the ball away but it should not break free when I catch it at my level. What’s the point of golden raspberries or regular for that matter when they do nothing? Why am I 3 for 11 on latios raid? I throw great curveballs every time. I should have better odds at my level. What’s the point of the levels if you are not benefiting any where in the game? Just disappointed. Feel some thought should go in to how you do when catching either wild or raid bosses based on level otherwise it’s all meaningless. Don’t make me waste balls on crappy or low xp rats, it’s not challenging, it’s annoying. That’s why people quit or take breaks. Lures and incense are completely useless. Don’t do jack. Stop putting them in special boxes. Also sick of same ones everyday. The only time you mix it up is during special events. It’s just lazy computer script writing. Otherwise the game is fun and worth trying whether your a fan of the series or not. But have to give three stars because you work really hard to level up for NOTHING.
Rural players matter too!!
by ivel420 on 2017/11/05 03:11
I love this game and play everyday but some recent changes are really hurting rural players. I live in a town of >1500 people and we have a Pokémon base of maybe 50 players around town, many of us having full time jobs, kids, or school or any combination of the 3. Sometimes it gets really difficult to get a enough players together for raids especially legendary raids that require a group of 7-8 or more because most of the players in rural areas like this aren’t much higher level than 25.. even some of the most active players are still only 30-33. Now you’ve changed the raid timers down to 45 there will be even less raids happening in my area. Most of the raids we were able to complete have been in the last 10-15 minutes of the 1 hour raids. Also the raid boss switch is pretty lame in my opinion the level 4s aren’t even worth while anymore at least before every once in a while you could get a snorlax or t-tar. Now the best thing is golem and what avid players don’t already have an army of them from fighting the legendary birds? Sableye and porygon are the only decent changes but now there is nothing with the strength of alakazam or machamp that is worth while for tier 3 and lower. Your changes have been for the worse and you are just making your fan base angrier with these useless changes when you should be focused on giving us thing we all want like trading, pvp, mew, and the rest of gen 2!!
A LOT better than before, improvements still needed
by AIcoholic on 2018/09/21 16:33
I downloaded day one and like a vast amount of people stopped playing after 6 months. 5 months ago I got back into PoGo as a lot of my coworkers play it. The improvements are great. I still think though there are many many more simple additions that can make the game even better. Please cache the Pokédex pictures, I don’t even know why I have to suggest this. Seems like a no brainer. Raids - need a waiting room that is visible to people in your map area (not right on top of gym) that you can wait in BEFORE spending a gym pass. While in the waiting room you can ping your friends to join you (or even nearby players). I know PvP is in the works but additional gameplay is needed. The monotonous grind can definitely get old, and although new generations of Pokémon subdue this, it will eventually lead to decline in players. Mini games or additional tasks/achievements would be great. Legendary gyms is a great idea, having defensive legendaries like Regiice is almost pointless besides the dex entry. This gym could only house legendaries and you get good loot for batting legendaries. This would add another element of leveling your defensive legendaries that are non-existent in the meta. Having gyms with Pve gym leaders you need to defeat like a gauntlet (similar to the gameboy games) would be awesome!! These aren’t difficult additions, please listen to us Niantic!!!
Not gonna lie
by aahliegh on 2018/08/29 23:50
I’m not even going to lie, I’m 27 and absolutely love this game. I grew up with Pokémon and this is by far the best Pokémon game. I stopped playing for a year or so because I reached the top level and got bored with it; about 6 months ago my husband convinced me to redownload it because of the numerous new features and two more generations of Pokémon that had been added to the game. Unfortunately as of lately I’ve been having nothing but problems with getting it to load. This is now the third time in a week that I’ve had to uninstall and reinstall the game and unfortunately this time it doesn’t appear to even be reinstalling. And yes the app and phone software are all up to date and everything like that. On top of that, on my other phone, if/when the game loads it no longer loads all of the way. It’s genuinely one of the most frustrating things I’ve been dealing with because playing this game keeps me out of trouble and out of my own head. It’s definitely become my biggest hobby and biggest outlet, so when I’m stressed out to the max and it doesn’t want to load - which seems to be every single time I’m excessively stressed lately- it just makes everything worse. I was praying that these last batch of updates they did would have fixed that but I haven’t even been able to get the game to load since it updated! That is literally the only downside to it and unfortunately it’s a major one.
After a lot of work...
by Martsthefarts on 2018/07/14 20:56
I got through the bad things about this app (Making an account took forever and I got stuck on loading) I have enjoyed the good stuff. I am on a roadtrip and as such I have been able to sit down, relax, then get exercising because the game has plenty of Poké Stops in cities, suburban areas have schools as Poké Stops sometimes, and basically, as long as you are near a Poké Stop you can enjoy this app to the fullest. Partly Cloudy weather has lead to me being able to catch so many different Pokémon and within a few minutes of playing I caught an Eevee and I love my Water Pokemon that I caught so far (Water is my favorite type) and I have enjoyed being able to play this game that has encouraged me to Pokémon GO outside and get exercise! At first the app seems blank, sure, but then you walk around and find a group of Plusle, Minun, Geodude, and so many more. And thankfully catching one doesn’t scare all the others away. I haven’t caught Pikachu, one of my favorite Pokémon, but on this road-trip I feel like I am destined to find one. I don’t care if I have to walk around the campground until 10:00 At Night. I will do what all my years of playing Pokémon has taught me. I will tell myself this everytime I feel tired and there is a nearby Poké Stop. Gotta Catch ‘em All! But seriously. Don’t put yourself in danger playing this app. Even if that shiny Magikarp (The King of Carp!) is right there. Don’t drown for it.
A really good game but some disappointments
by SUPER SANICCCCC MLG on 2018/04/17 10:36
Pokémon GO is a really good game. I like the fact that the game makes you go outside to catch Pokémon. The game makes you really excited about what you are going to catch next... but there are a few thing I want to talk about, like regional Pokémon. I think that you guys at Niantic should think of something to people is the USA can catch Pokémon like mr. mine and let the people in England catch Tauros with out needing to fly there just to catch ONE Pokémon. Another thing is the Field Research. I like it a lot and when you finish it and get the “Mystery Pokémon” you either get Moltres, Zapdose, or Articuno. But when you finish it a second time around, you get the same legendary Pokémon. I think that every time you get the field research mystery encounter should be a different bird Pokémon. And after you get all the three legendary bird Pokémon, It would give you The legendary Pokémon Mewtwo, then onto the GEN two legendary Pokémon, then to the GEN three Pokémon etc, etc. I think this would be a good idea for the people who missed out on the special raids like for Mewtwo and the other Legendary Pokémon. Please make this an update because I’m only a 12-year-old boy who has been in Pokémon GO since the beginning and the only 2 legendary Pokémon I have are Entei and Moltres, which I got from the Field Research. Thank you.
Love it but....
by kenketcham on 2018/07/30 02:14
I’m gonna keep this short and sweet I’ve recently picked up Pokémon go again after about 7 months of not playing this game I once was obsessed with now I can say that it definitely has grown in a lot of ways but still things need to be changed starting with people in rural areas have a tough time really playing this game because of the lack of poke stops and variety of Pokémon given to them. I myself live in the Suburbs and also once lived in the city and FYI it’s such a drastic difference in terms of pokestops and Pokemon in general the cities are obviously flooded with both while the suburbs yet not completely empty still lacks the ability to grow within this game, but back to my point I have friends who love this game who live in much more rural areas and they just can’t really grow or have much fun with this wonderful game and they become extremely frustrated with it because they really must travel such a distance to be able to play this game it was obviously meant to be played with gym battles galore, pokestop madness and obviously new Pokédex entries. So I conclude this with Niantic you guys have really made this game fun again but please show more of a distribution of Pokémon, gyms, and pokestops to all your players across the country because I want this game to do better then it has ever been. P.s. sorry for the lack of punctuation
Love this game so much, but some flaws cause it to be so frustrating
by Jaclynlou on 2018/01/18 19:42
There have been a few times where I’ve been in a very large raid group (10-20 people) and a few of us will get kicked out in the middle of the battle and we won’t be allowed back in (even when there’s time left on the clock) to catch the Pokemon. There have been times where after this glitch happens, I will still have my raid pass, but all of my Pokemon will be injured or knocked out. There are also times where I have lost my raid pass in this glitch and it causes me to have to buy another one on the spot. It’s very frustrating and embarrassing to commute far out to meet up with a raid group, only to have the game glitch out on me. I’ve been playing this game since the day it came out and glitches like this cause me to get very discouraged and flustered. That being said, I love this game so much; it truly makes my long walk into work better and more fun, AND it encourages me to go out for walks during my lunch break. I would say that it has been a very positive influence on my life and some of my friends lives. It makes my day more exciting, and it helps me feel a level of nostalgia considering I played all of the Pokemon games growing up. I hope this game is up and running forever, I just wish that some of the gym issues would get cleaned up a bit :)
Pokémon go is OK
by OldGamers01 on 2018/12/18 22:14
I like Pokémon GO it’s very simple now very hard to use and it takes you out of all of the house and help his people to walk about and explore but the one thing I have problems with is that when I logged on for the first time I was at level one and then also I had a glitch and also I became level six on the red team even though I never chose that team the problem with this Pokémon go is that the team that develop the And the support system there is terrible because when I tell him about my issue they won’t even respond to my problem I was trying to tell him that I did not pick my team and they were saying that we can’t do anything about it once you pick your team there’s nothing that you can do I also try to reset my account with my new email and I didn’t do any good like I had really had issue with the login is your for Pokémon go and the support staff on that game was terrible they need to learn to have some Consideration about their customers if there’s a problem they should take the time and look into issues instead of just sitting on the automated discussions about what we need to know stuff like that the support system was really terrible in my case I mean the game is fine not gonna lie but the support system is terrible though tech-support for their game is terrible I even went to the website and didn’t do anything about it
Best game ever
by Ugfiyxjydthfdh on 2018/07/16 16:46
Almost. I love the new trading and friend system, this has been one of my favorite games over the last couple years. But I think that you guys should add a chat system to organize raids better. It could be like a messaging system between friends only so that way there no trouble with stalking or anything negative like that but it would make it easier to organize raid parties without having to download a third party app like WhatsApp which requires you to let everyone know your phone number. Also it would be great to be able to buy great or ultra balls from the shop as well. I walked at a park near me for about 30 miles and caught every Pokémon that appeared. By the end of the walk I only received about 40 ultra balls and 50 great balls which sounds great until you consider that I walked for 9 hours. I received plenty of regular poke balls though(over 250 to be exact). One last note, I live in Miami and there are plenty of places to go play Pokémon go but sometimes I wish I could just walk around my area without having to travel to play. There’s plenty of things that could be pokestops near me but just aren’t. There are 2 churches on my corner that don’t have pokestops. Right across the street there is a building with a cool design that could be a pokestops but I refuse to download ingress just to request pokestops.
Very good game!
by epicivan on 2019/01/11 01:45
Hi I am going to tell you about all the good things about this game to me. No offense to the people who don’t like this game. This is just my opinion. First of all, I think the leveling is great, it’s not too hard or easy to level up when you are playing constantly and doing easy things. Next, I really like the types of Pokémon, like Legendary and Mythical Pokémon. Also, trading, sending gifts and battling other trainers I think really helps the other player( and you of course )get to know each other in the game and personally better. There are not many things that are bad about this game but there are some that I really want you to change. First, getting to ultra friend or higher to battle. I think you should change this because it is very hard to get to ultra friend and I really want to battle my friend that lives in the Bay Area But I live 3hr far from him! I think you should lower the level. 2nd I think you should lower the price of stardust when trading for all players. Last, I think you should give more pokecoins when the Pokémon comes back defeated. I think in the end, this game can really get to be fun and give you exercise at the same time! To me, this game is more fun than bad. So why don’t go out and play Pokémon go!
Similar to real game
by NOtaterJUSTtat on 2018/10/21 03:19
I started playing July 2016 but due to all the glitches and lack of Pokémon I stopped playing for a few years. The reason I started up again was because a friend recommended to try it. Now gifts can be exchanged, the Pokémon generations are mostly caught up, and there are a lot more stops and gyms to interact with. My main issue with this game is the lack of interaction with other players. I would like to be able to battle with nearby trainers like the real Pokémon game allows. Also during gym battles, there should be an option to switch Pokémon in between defeats. Those are the rules in a real Pokémon battle and this should be applied to this game. Pokémon should also gain experience after battles to help build them up. I understand the candy concept but those should be bonus experience/cp. I have lost a few great catches due to the glitches/network errors which is very frustrating! Other than that I enjoy catching Pokémon and spinning stops on my walk up to work through the downtown area. It’s a nice way to see the town. EDIT I forgot to mention: I’m not sure why but when I’m on the bus or in any vehicle as a passenger I should be able to spin stops for rewards not “try again later”. It doesn’t make sense to allow me the option to catch Pokémon but I can’t get stops or gain steps with my eggs or buddy.
Great, but still missing some stuff
by Tabarius Quan on 2018/06/14 17:58
I played this game on and off since it first came out in 2016. And while I think it’s a solid game, it’s still missing out on some things. There’s still really poor rural and suburban representation in Pokémon go, especially in regards to raids and pokestops. I understand if raids have to take place in towns, but it wouldn’t hurt to have at least some amount of pokestops near communities. I live near a local park and there are zero pokestops there. I understand that there’s an option to create pokestops indirectly through another Niantic game, Ingress, but from my experience that game isn’t properly optimized for newer iPhones, and the base-building system is clunky and tedious. It would make more sense for Pokémon GO players to create new pokestops in gardens and parks, so that they can more easily play the game away from the city or towns. Another minor complaint is the sound. What was the deal with the sudden degrade in sound quality? Was that for saving battery life? Another good thing to add would be to battle other players’ Pokémon directly, instead of going to a raid or a gym and battling their Pokémon there. Niantic still needs to realize that not all of their player base is willing to drive 10 miles to go catch and see Pokémon. If these issues would be fixed this game would be 5 stars.
New update is great but it might as well have totally killed the go plus device
by Holyman47201 on 2017/12/20 01:38
Update with the newest version. Really annoying bug I’m hoping it’s a bug at least. Every time you transfer or rename a Pokémon it always jumps back to the top of the list instead of staying where you were. Very annoying and time wasting change having to scroll all the time. I really like the changes in the new update. The weather pattern thing is great. The button push charge move in gym battles is a huge improvement. The spawn rates have improved. Overall a really great update. However, it has basically killed any usefulness the go plus device had. The catch rate wasn’t great before, but at least it was acceptable for what it was. That definitely changed with the update. With the weather feature causing affected Pokémon to be higher cp the plus is even worse. You just can’t catch an almost maxed out anything with a regular ball. I would suggest what I think would be a fairly easy fix. Maybe have the game automatically start a catch attempt with a suggested ball instead of a regular one every time. Ie... if it pops up and I see the circle yellow I switch to a great ball. Red goes to ultra balls. Have the game/go plus be smart enough to do the same thing. I have huge stockpiles of great and ultra balls so I’d rather the plus use those to improve the catch rate.
Love it, but needs improvement
by GamingWiizard on 2018/04/30 23:28
To start this off, I want to let you know that this is a great game. Even though it was the craze a year or two back, I’ve just started playing a week ago and love it! There’s only a couple things that I would like that might get other players back into it. First off, changing that battle system is a must. Players do not like the mad tapping and sliding you do when you battle a gym. Maybe switching it to the usual battle style will keep players happy. Secondly, I think adding battling and trading with other players will make it more enjoyable. I personally, don’t have the money to fly to another region and catch a Pokémon that is region specific. If we had trading, you could trade with someone elsewhere that might have the Pokémon. Also, the battling will keep players engaged to the point where they will try and beat their friends by catching more powerful Pokémon. Last but not least, I think you should add NPCs to the game. With the battle mechanics you could add trainers to battle against and earn rewards for winning! That would give players enough enthusiasm to go and battle trainers. Adding the evil organizations like Team Rocket could also add some spice to the game. That’s all I have, and thank you for reading!
The game has really grown
by Claydol123 on 2018/09/23 03:10
I remember when the game came out 2 years ago. It was rough around the edges at best. It was the first of its kind and was revolutionary but crashed often, servers struggled, and to path to being the best wasn’t strait forward. The game was good at keeping you active but that was about it at the start. I remember a year ago it started getting better in terms of crashing, but still the encounter rate of certain Pokémon made it seem like they actually weren’t in the game. All you could find were pidgeys and rattatas. When the legendary raids came out a spark of life struck the game but there was still a lot of room for improvement. Now it’s September 2018 and the game has grown so much. There are a lot more Pokémon, and I encounter rare ones periodically rather than never. I enjoyed the Chikorita community day earlier today as well. A crowded university with hundreds of people all doing the same thing was really fun! I crashed a few times but overall the game is a lot sturdier than it used to be, at least on the iPhone. I feel like Niantic is actually taking our worries into consideration to a certain extent. I hope the game continues to go in the right direction. With all said and done I consider the current Pokémon go 5/5.
Great Fun!!!
by YogiDBear on 2017/10/22 15:57
First let me say that I’m 53 years old, so I’m most likely not the average player of this game. I first became interested in the world of Pokémon back in 1998, when my older children discovered the TV show. Because of their heavy interest in all things Pokémon I took interest as well, trying to be a good dad. I invested HEAVILY in the card game, took the kids to weekend tournament each week, even became our local gym leader (because I was one of the rare adults who knew Pokémon as well as the children). Now we flash forward almost 20 years later an I’ve re-entered the world of Pokémon through Pokémon Go! The game is so well laid out, with quick and easy to learn game aspects, even for a newby to Pokémon. The best part of the game is that it’s design encourages the players to get out and move around. To walk and explore your town or city. Since every park, mall, restaurant, or store may be a hotspot for a new breed of Pokémon you’ve yet to catch. I’ve even been able to get my wife playing the game. Which says a lot since she almost totally avoided stuff back when our older children were heavily into the Pokémon world. This game is by far one of the best, most fun and addictive games I’ve ever played. Once you start you’ve “GOTTA CATCH EM ALL”!!!
Overall a fun game
by Chsgvfygshh on 2018/11/23 02:37
The catching system is charmingly simple yet not incredibly easy, and the game provides incentive to catch Pokémon in the form of the Pokédex. And while legendary Pokémon are obviously going to be sought after as status symbols, the gym system is painstakingly easy, but the Niantic does give pretty generous rewards for participating in gym battles, such as up to 50 premium currency a day to keep all content technically free, but I find it a chore to go out to an isolated gym or to a gym in the middle of the night just so I can make sure I cap out on 50 pokecoins a day. It is nearly impossible to fail a gym attack once you reach level 20, which isn’t a long time at all, and thus victories don’t feel fulfilling and rather tiresome. But, the game does put an emphasis on meeting up with people to battle a difficult enemy, also known as a raid, but that is the extent of difficult content, and even then you will never need more than 10 decently leveled people to breeze through a raid. I understand the combat system for raids, but I believe the gym combat system could benefit greatly from a more engaging overhaul that adds more depth. Overall, however, the charming and incredibly fun catching system compensated for the uninteresting combat system and still provides an enjoyable experience.
Good, but limited now
by MoniMe2345 on 2018/10/18 04:51
This game is great. It is fun and does get you out, but some changes have occurred which have really made the game less fun. First, there is really no way to get coins, which allow you to play, without buying them (you can get some things you need within the game but it cripples your ability to play much). So now you have to pay to play more than just the minimum. Next, there is no longer any incentive to fight to capture a gym or to hold one. You can get 50 coins per day by holding a gym - but there isn’t anything you can buy for 50 coins in the game. For instance, an incubator, which lets you hatch an egg, costs 150 coins. And that’s it. You don’t get any points or experience beyond just practice fighting and you Pokémon’s are stuck in the gym until someone takes it over - which there isn’t much incentive to do. I’ve had Pokémons sit there for days waiting for someone to take the gym. I’ve noticed players now no longer support their pm’s in the gym if they are under attack and some players put in very week pm’s so they don’t have to waste resources to revive. As more players figure this out, fighting for and holding gyms will become a thing of the past. And people without money to spare will find the game frustrating and limited. So sad, because it really was a great, community game once.
Not pleased currently
by rDh 02 on 2018/02/09 14:56
I’ve been playing Pokémon go since it first came out. There have probably only been 2 game apps I’ve ever used for this long. There are two things I’m currently unhappy about. How difficult it is for rural players to get some action. It is at least 5 miles to the closest pokestop—-there’s no way of walking that far, which I thought was the main idea of PG (getting people more active). There is NO Pokemon spawning near my home. I can walk from one end of my road to the other end and there are 2 spots where they spawn. 2 lousy spots. Once I catch what’s there, it takes a while for a new one to spawn so what am I supposed to do? Turn around and walk the miles again for 2 more Pokemon? And the raid battles. There is no way on earth that a small town will ever get 17-20 people together to catch a legendary out here. It’s impossible even with social media. My second complaint is the lack of revives! I understand that you want to make money on the game but come on! Pokémon go is one of the few games I have spent money on. I have mainly bought lucky eggs and incubators. No way am I gonna sink money into revives. I guess when all my Pokémon faint I will just quit the game. It wouldn’t be as bad if there was a way to earn coins in the game. I used to earn a few coins by defending gyms but you hardly earn any coins currently.
Not Right
by pinkdiva702 on 2018/10/25 02:39
I have been playing Pokémon go for several years now and about a year ago started getting into the raid. Until today I actually enjoyed playing Pokémon and doing the raids. I got the chance to do the new raid boss Giratina and actually had enough people to down the raid boss just before the time ran out. However I DIDNT GET Giratina because it would NOT stay in the White ball. I gave it berry’s but NOTHING WOULD HELP. I was not over throwing the balls and I didn’t miss 1 time but didn’t get the Pokémon because it would NOT stay in the ball AT ALL didn’t matter if I threw a berry or not. We do the raids to win the Pokémon and to do all that work and not win the Pokémon because it won’t stay in the ball is very wrong. It’s hard enough to actually find enough players to down a boss like Giratina where I live which is why I’m so very frustrated this happened. I’m sure some might think I’m just complaining but this is the 2nd time this has happened. I fully believe something needs to be done about this. If we are given these special white balls then it should be very hard for the Pokémon to brake out so we actually get the prize we are there for not break out as soon as it’s caught ever time. If that’s the case then why give us the special white balls .I don’t know if this has been happing to others I’m sure I’m not the only one but I can say if this happens again I will stop playing it Pokémon!!
Battery Drainer
by lolkitty21 on 2018/08/24 17:48
I really loved this game back in the beginning, and I forgot why I deleted it till I recently reinstalled it to my phone. It is a major battery killer. Ever since I downloaded it three days ago, I have been dealing with my phone randomly powering off, even when I made sure to completely close the app, or I turn off my phone at half power, then go to power it back on after a few hours, only to find that my previously charged phone is suddenly dead and won’t turn back on. I don’t know if it is just the app, or there is something more to it, but it is rather coincidental that I started having these problems shortly after downloading the app. Today, my battery life was stalled at 100% for over three hours, and I did everything I could to figure out how to fix it, including restarting the phone and meddling with the settings. The battery percentage only started going down after I deleted the app. Like I said, I doubt it was the only thing causing the power drain, but the app certainly wasn’t helping, and I hadn’t ever had these problems that I listed till the app was on my phone. Which is too bad, because I love this app, it’s cute, and I really would like to catch more Pokémon, but I don’t want to risk it. I don’t know if I am the only one who has this problem, but whatever it is, I hope it is resolved and I can download it again one day.
Great Concept, But It Could Use Polish
by RetroMarioGamer on 2017/12/23 17:34
So, Pokemon games are about getting Pokemon and pitting those Pokemon against other Pokemon, right? Well this game is just that, but without the second part. Sure, catching Pokémon in the real world with AR is genius, but it gets old after a while. And the only way to battle other Pokemon is going to gyms. Now, what’s smart about the gyms is that you need to be a certain level to enter certain gyms, which encourages you to level up more by, again, getting Pokemon. Now, what I mean by the battling part of the game not being there is this: it sort of feels like an afterthought. If your Pokemon faint in battle, you’re in for some SERIOUS grinding. First, you have to get potions from pokestops so you can use them to heal your Pokemon. But oh no! If your Pokemon aren’t leveled up enough, you can’t heal them! Wanna level them up? Sorry! Nope! YOU have to be a certain level in order to level up your Pokemon, AND THEN you can heal them. This is literally the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever experienced in a video game. Granted, gym battles are optional, but if the option is available, don’t make it so freaking tedious!! Although, I have hope that you will fix these problems, because this game used to have SEVERE internet issues, and you fixed that. So please, listen to my complaints and fix the grinding issues!!
I really love this game but I think it could use some features
by x.Hendrix.x on 2018/06/11 04:24
I genuinely love Pokémon Go. I have stuck with it since it came out. There are some things I think would be cool to add. Trading Pokémon would be great but I understand why they haven’t released it yet. There is no defeating the game or beating a final boss or anything there is just filling your Pokédex, which with trading would then be too easy. I feel like you should be able to see other players in game their like avatars I don’t see why battling other trainers in the game would be a bad feature to add I think it would be fun. Also in the other Pokémon games there were healing stations, I get we have revives and pokestops but I have found it very hard to get enough to actually do battles. I have to say rural areas should have more pokestops and more accessible Pokémon. When the game first came out I lived 7 miles from the nearest pokestop. I have to get a ride into the small town near my where I lived and even then there were like 5 pokestops throughout the town. Maybe a way to message other players would be nice because I only know like 4 people near me interested in playing this game so if I could like message people and tell them I’m going to this raid battle come join that would be cool.
Love this game. A few recommendations
by Buddy💡 on 2018/11/21 02:43
I love this game, I think it’s really fun and it was complicated at first, but now that I’ve been playing for a while (not even that long), and with the help of my mom an brother we’ve been able to figure it out. The only thing I have to say is about the avatar customizing. And it’s mostly on the hair. Ok it’s all about the hair. There aren’t that many colors to chose from, I mean I guess there’s enough for you to get a color close to yours (if you want your avatar to look like you of course). Like if you’re a red head and have more orangey hair the closest you get is a red that you can only get by dyeing your hair. Another part is the hairstyles. All there is, is medium length hair up in a ponytail. I mean it’s pretty accurate to my hair but not every girl has that length of hair and wears it up like that. I have a friend who has a pixie cut. I have a friend who has hair almost up to her chin. What about girls with curly hair? All they get is somewhat wavy hair put up in a ponytail. I know this is a long thing just about the hair, and I don’t even know what it’s like for the guys. Anyways. Sorry for this long thing about hair, but thought I should say something. Still love the game!
Niantic choosing fight against cheaters over legit players
by AndrewTre on 2018/06/22 17:42
With my account nearing 2 years of age, which will happen on the 7th of July, I have been waiting for trading since launch, and I have to say I’m disappointed, the IV reroll destroys any want for me to trade with my friends, I don’t have any interest in spending the stardust for a Pokémon I would otherwise transfer if I caught. Though I understand that it keeps cheaters and spoofers from acquiring perfect Accounts that much faster I believe it really screws the people that have been playing for 2 years now. Having played for two years, my Pokédex is pretty much full aside from regional exclusives and I looked forward to this as being an ability to fill these holes in my Pokédex with people I raid with a couple of times a week, knowing this is going to cost a million stardust, or make me wait 90 day’s for it to drop to a reasonable cost, has completely deterred me from trading all together. At the very least I would like to see the IV reroll be taken away. People are going to cheat, there’s no way around it, but I should be able to trade the High IV Pokemon that would make a much bigger impact on my friends teams then they would on mine .
I have 21 Sinnoh Stones :/
by FelixTruvere on 2019/02/16 10:02
Please stop “awarding” me Sinnoh Stones in my tedious, boring battling of weak computer-bot trainers. I was just awarded 5 of them :( PLEASE take them back they’re filling up my space... yes you want me to purchase more space... got it 👍🏼 Look man... I’m level 40 and I sure hate to think I’ve come this far to see things become THIS boring now with not so much to look forward to. I’ll suppose I’ll ask for more stardust? Niantic, you owe us more. I’m not talking about owing anything to these new level 25ers, I’m talking about your REAL level 40 trainers with 50 Arcanines & 50 Vaporeons evolved from July, 2016. My satisfaction of pleasure in passing time with this game is now down to only being able to power up lesser Pokémon that aren’t powered up yet. I can’t show off my legendary Pokémon in gyms so.... where are my bragging rights? What are you giving your die-hard gamers? What respect can we show off now that we make level 40? Game over? Can you at least throw us a level 40 jacket for free in the shop??? Something to show off? No one knows or cares that my Mewtwo is powered all the way & maxed above 4000 CP because I CANT SHOW THAT OFF; SO WHATS THE POINT? Trainers like Ash (let’s face it), want bragging rights. Let me AT LEAST leave my legendary Pokémon at gyms. At LEAST give that thrill to your level 40ers. I need more.
Bug is preventing me from having fun
by gbunnyhop on 2018/12/01 06:12
Don’t get me wrong, I love this app to death. It gets me motivated to go on walks at my local park which has enough stops and gyms to keep me busy for hours. The problem I’m having as of recently is that every time I open the app and catch one pokemon, the surrounding pokemon disappear and then the screen has a loading icon for a bit. Sometimes the pokemon come back, but most times they don’t. It’s been frustrating because when I open the app and I have good pokemon around me that I want to catch I can never catch them all because they disappear somehow and never come back. I’m also having a problem where pokemon right now are requiring to many balls/berries for me to catch when there HP is like 400 or less (more around 250 HP) but it’s still low enough where I shouldn’t be using like ten balls and berries and then it runs away. It’s been to much lately between pokemon rates changing to where it’s not really fun anymore with all the disappearing pokemon and me having to waste so many balls on such low level pokemon. I’m sure I’m not the only one going through this with the app right now, I feel like there’s lots of bugs and there needs to be some changes I think. I just wanna get to the park and play more and enjoy myself with the app like I used to.
Great updates, but something’s really bugging me
by Lindzboots on 2018/07/05 02:44
I LOVE what you’ve done to improve the game, with friends and raids and research and everything! One thing I’m bothered by, though, is the gym/coin system. I understand needing to put a cap on how much coin can be earned from having a Pokémon in a gym, but a 50 limit per day across the board seems stilted. For example, I had a Pokémon in a gym for a little while (a day or so), and when she came home she brought 50 coins. Awesome! But then, that same day, another Pokémon from a different gym came home - one who’d been at the gym for four days - and didn’t bring anything, because I’d already reached my daily 50-coin max. I just feel like the system could be improved - maybe keep the coin-every-ten-minutes but move the 50-coin cap to be per day each Pokémon is gone? So, if a Pokémon is only gone 20 minutes he brings home 2 coins, but if he’s gone for 2 days he brings home 100, regardless of what any other Pokémon brought home that day? Just a thought. But my four-days-missed Pokémon bringing home nothing was really a bummer, and I don’t feel incentivized to keep my Pokémon in gyms for very long, with the system working the way it does....
Great game
by AncientSin606 on 2018/09/10 06:47
As far as this game could had gone, it did pretty well for itself. Niantic had some issues at the beginning, but up to now it seems that most of those issues have been solved. And about the rural players.I feel you, I live in a small town too. But there’s still a way to play the game. All you have to do is participate in community days or other big events that get players playing. You can even get some of your friends to play, making your own squad to take down those tough raids. I play with 9 of my friends and it seems to be working pretty well. Anyway, great game, loving the events, etc. the only problem that I can think of is the spoofing issue. TweakBox, tutu app and other apps are coming out with the latest spoofing hacks and Niantic seems to be falling a step behind. I hate the idea of spoofing because players like me who have been playing the game since day one now have to compete with spoofers who can grab a bunch of Pokémon and legendaries overnight. I’d like this issue to finally be solved soon, but if it can’t oh well I guess. Aside from that this game is a game that I’ll have for a looooooooong time. Keep up the great work Niantic!😁👌
Best mobile game in history
by unknownTOOL on 2018/06/20 04:55
Pokémon Go is a fantastic mobile game that models the Pokémon franchise that is Pokémon. The Pokémon and art in the game are one-hundred percent the originals and nothing looks off from previous Pokémon games. The game is completely legit. When I think of a Pokémon Game this the one that’s first in mind. If you where ever a fan of Pokémon like I am then you must agree that Pokémon Go is pretty close to being perfect and still has room to improve. By being a mobile game the game the app has to update in time and there is huge changes with the game since the day it started back in 2016. I give the game 5 starts for all the hard work that has been put forth to improve the game. It honestly is the best MOBILE game there is. You can take your device anywhere and now there is meaning why during the gameplay. You can meat people and learn about Pokémon in a way that I couldn’t before with the original game boy games I have grew up on. It’s Fantastic. The developers listen and reason with everybody they will explain why they do something the way they do. Niantic is a great developer and glad they took on the world of Pokémon with there Pokémon Go. Keep it up Niantic
Loyal Pokémon go gamer
by King Odin 51 on 2017/10/18 17:56
I really love this game but the fact that I cannot do a raid battle for a legendary Pokémon on my own is increasingly Aggravating unfortunately there are not many players that can come out during the time of legendary raiding I think it should be possible for any one person to take on a legendary Pokémon their self if they have the proper Pokémon to do so but that’s not the only thing I would like to say PVP is the most sensual part of the legacy of Pokémon GO and for it to not be included in the game is extremely unacceptable catching Pokémon is fun but to battle them with your friends and against your friends is the point of the game to be the best that no one ever was we will never be able to become Great trainers if we are not given the opportunity to put our hard work and time into The most important part of the game battling against Friends all the same I love the game but I am going to be taking a hiatus from the game until such time it is fair for a single trainer to take on a legendary Pokémon alone and we are able to battle against our friends I don’t really want to have to do this but the game is losing its point to play that is all goodbye for now
Sound design and quality
by TotalMiner_7 on 2018/12/01 05:56
i love the game and the gameplay can’t really get any better than it already is, however there is one glaring issue with the game. it has a few sound design issues. the sound effects that come out of my iPhone XS are so low resolution, it sounds like a Nintendo DS Lite. Every time i click a menu button there is an awful sound that sounds fuzzy, distant, and grainy. the game would be top notch if they simply added that. the music doesn't have the same problem, so why do sound effects which are equally (if not more important) hinder the experience of the game? i do have an issue with the music. why is it still this generic Pokémon GO song? why not remix some old route themes from all the different generations of Pokémon with Pokémon GO instruments? imagine running around your neighborhood catching Pokémon with a remix of route 209 from Sinnoh? that’d be so great, and its been 2 years and i’ve heard people argue for this in the past. I just cant justify five stars when the sound design is so effortless, and its been like that since launch. if they revamped the quality of sound effects this game would be perfect, i dont even need the music. fix those grainy sound effects!!!
Great game Few cons tho
by datbookend on 2019/01/22 05:21
This is a great game. but the spawning of pokémon are lacking a bit. the insense are good but i have timed the pokémon and for a 30 min span it’s to far apart atleast out of 30 mins you should spawn 5 pokémon. another spawn problem is that there are so few pokémon to begin with. i say commons should be around a lot but nothing really around at all. another thing is as i quested to get a ditto i have realized that excellent is almost impossible. the ring size i have gotten to and still only get great is insane i have gotten where the ring is a fourth of the size of the ball and still only great. this should be fixed. i can not complete mission if i can get excellent. i have not seen many that have gotten this this pokémon with out the switchbeing involved in it. another thing is you should open the ring up to a bigger area for people to see more so they do not have to go into a home or hospital. this can make things fun for the fact the farther you are on the circle the farther the pokémon is away could me things fun and you could add a new medal for this. i hope the company sees this and will help out all of the trainers with this issue.
Do you WANT dedicated players gone?
by A Broken-Hearted Fool on 2018/09/10 15:40
The past month or so has been a giant crap-fest of screwing over the main consumers of the game. Like, sure, spend three months putting the legendary birds in raids with a shiny chance, let your players spend $20+ on raid passes under the impression that they'll never have a shot at one in at least the next year, and then at the end of all of it release all three for a month as a "bonus" to nullify their efforts and bank account emptying. Not only that; spend over a YEAR watching people rush from their homes to complete raids at ex-eligible gyms for a shot at getting an ex-raid pass, only to release mewtwo for everyone? I just took a 3 hour long trip to nashville yesterday to complete an ex-raid because they were really that rare. Now apparently in a few weeks they're going to start spawning everywhere. And don't even get me started on lucky pokemon. Everyone that's actually into the game traded all of their old pokemon off for a higher lucky chance immediately. And everyone that didn't, already received 10 luckies and missed their chance at guaranteed luckies permanently. It almost feels like a reward for those who broke the rules and made multiple accounts; because who else is going to trade someone a guaranteed lucky valuable pokemon in exchange for a 10 cp bulbasaur from 2016?
App kept crashing on my new iPhone xs max
by gmzdrgnmastr on 2018/10/15 17:36
Here’s my story...about a week ago I decided to buy the new series 4 watch and the new iPhone xs max. I was excited about using this app on my new watch since I’ve never owned an Apple Watch till recently. Anyway I launched the app and was prompted like normal to sign in to my google account, which I did. When the app reached 100% load time it simply crashed and shut down. I know this was a problem in the early stages of when the app had launched, so I did all the basic troubleshooting....restarted my phone, uninstalled the app and reinstalled, cleared browsing history, deleted account associated with google..all of that didn’t work so of course I was starting to get frustrated and was ready to write a review with a one star rating. But I kept my composure and thought outside the box, turns out that the cause for the crashes was with my watch. So what I did was uninstalled the app associated with my watch, relaunched the app from my phone, signed on, waited till the app launched completely and then installed the app on my watch. Anyhow I just wanted to share this experience in case anyone else out there ends up going through the same issue.
Overall above average game
by Holly Ha on 2018/05/14 04:43
Pokémon go is pretty good if you live in an area with a lot of poke stops but if you don’t then you’re screwed. I live in a rural area and even though there are some stops and gyms there aren’t enough to sustain my supply of poke balls. If I go out and play I will end up catching a lot of Pokémon and run out of balls very quickly because there aren’t enough stops. So what I end up doing is I travel to the city where there are a lot of stops and it’s pretty fun playing there because there are a lot of gyms and stops but it’s very annoying to have to drive to the city every time I want to play. Also I know a lot of people have already said this but there should be trading and PVP it would make the game a lot better and more enjoyable. I also think there should be an easier way to get poke coins because the only way you can is to put your Pokémon in gyms and you only get 1 coin for every 10 minutes and it Maxs out at 50 coins. I feel like you should get 1 coin every 5 stops you spin or something similar to that because there should be another way to get coins. But even though there are a lot of negatives to Pokémon go it is very fun if you are in a good area.
I love it
by lexi in love with kuttys on 2019/02/02 16:48
This review is to tell you that I love this game and I can’t wait for the new evolved Eevee to come out The silver on leafeon Pokémon like that.I already have most of the evolved eevee Jolteon Flareon and last of all vaporreon was my first evolved Eevee and it’s like 1500 something and it’s annoying how low it is and it’s even more difficult for my Flareon because it’s 1300 something it’s not fair Flareon supposed to be the highest and it’s there and us it’s lower than my Vape porion sorry about the spacing between the names dictating does that I love this game and I I’ve only been playing it for for A few months now and I already have in team and all those Pokémon my dad is jealous because I have a sableye and l think this game is good for families that are wanting to play with each other so I love this game and I recommend you download it because it’s great and maybe you could make so that dragon and rare Pokémon come out a little more because my dad is really jealous because I have a lot of things he does not this is good for families who want to spend time with each other I’m sorry that the review was really long bye✋🏻😻😻😻😻😻🙀😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻🙀🙀😻🙀😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻 love many happy campers
Individual quests??
by Npo1234 on 2017/10/24 20:56
The game could use some individual quests where specific targets and goals need to be reached in order to capture a particular type of Pokémon. While the camaraderie that the raids bring out is fantastic, it also brings out certain drawbacks where trainers don’t utilize their stardust (many have saved up but relatively untapped because there’s really no reason to) to properly power up their Pokémon to assist with defeating Raid bosses leaving the burden to the rest of the trainers. While in a larger settings with 10+ trainers it really doesn’t matter but the underlying issues are that these raids are simply hand outs. The raids are often too easily won without much of a challenge. Experiences are too easily achieved, rewards are overwhelmingly abundant. There isn’t much that needs to be done from a strategic point of view. Perhaps individual goals or making the Raid bosses more difficult to actually defeat or returning the old gym system with highest CP on top. Currently as it stands, rare candies are in no shortage for the most part for those who participate in many raids; for some-stardust may be the limiting agent but that can be solved by catching more over time. For others, they keep storing their stardust and don’t necessarily use them because there hasn’t been any compelling reasons to.
Personal goals system
by Greg_Cohen on 2018/01/11 16:05
So I love playing this game and have been with them since the beginning. Niantic has put in systems that have helped the game grow and stay in the top charts. I loved it when they added the 7 day streaks system. It gave me more XP and Stardust on a regular basis and I really needed it. I was thinking that they should add personal goals in Pokémon Go. For example, there could be daily and weekly challenges that could grant you Poké Coins, super incubators, and other bundles of items. In addition to personal goals, I believe that Niantic should scrap the EX Raids and make it so that you need to complete your own goals in order to attempt to catch Mewtwo. This way you won’t have to rely on luck as much and you don’t need to rely on other players. Another idea is that there should be a “Sell” option in he shop. Just like in the Pokémon games, you can sell items that either are worth a lot or don’t have any use for you. I have so 300+ total potions that’s I have to just discard to make more room for Poké balls. It would be awesome if I could sell the items I don’t want and receive Poké coins. It’s just a thought. I love this game so much and I hope the updates keep on rolling in!
Recently returned and want to play more, but..
by Siege2 on 2017/11/28 12:46
I was one of those players who played at launch for a month, and was driven away by how hollow the game was. There has been a lot of improvement since then. I’ve recently moved to Florida from the far north and am motivated to spend more time outside. Enter my Pokémon GO revival: The game itself is fun and engaging now that there has been a lot of content added. You can read that in any review. The criticisms I’d like to contribute outweigh the benefits I’ve been enjoying lately. Niantic has a bad reputation when it comes to app support and listening to customer feedback. The notable exception being during in game events that they need to continually host in order to sustain a player base. iPhone X users had been waiting for an update to support their device for quite some time, despite developers having more than adequate time to provide it. Niantic’s solution, nearly a full month after the iPhone X release, was to zoom everything in and make everything look and feel wonky. The edges are also cut off so they could stretch the UI vertically. Lazy and sloppy. There’s no excuse for this, and my rating will remain at 1 star until this is addressed. iPhone X users now have a smaller usable map on a larger display. The game was more playable before they “supported the iPhone X.” Get your stuff together, Niantic.
I’m getting fed up with this game!
by Cheryl 7777 on 2018/06/13 03:40
I have been playing this game for almost 2 years. I have one account leveled up to 40. I’m working on another account and have it leveled up to 38. I don’t know if it’s Niantic’s issue, Verizon’s issue, or Apples issue, but I’m having constant problems with my gps and my avatar wandering way off. I was at an ex raid this afternoon and couldn’t play at all. I was sitting practically right on top of the gym and my avatar was wondering a few miles off somewhere. This is happening several times a day. On numerous occasions I will actually get into the gym and use my raid pass and my lucky egg, only to have my avatar take off for parts unknown. So I’m out my raid pass, my lucky egg, and the 20,000 xp for the raid. These inventory items cost me money. Another big issue is when I try to sign into the game. At least 1 out of every 3 times I attempt to sign in, the loading screen gets stuck right under the “Y” in the word “your”. That’s where it stays stuck no matter how long I wait. I always have to sign out and completely sign back in. I have played this game for a long time, and when it was working it was fabulous and fun. At this point I’m fed up with wasting money and being frustrated. I’m about ready to look for a new game to waste my hard earned dollars on.
Best App I have, but...
by CyoteSlayer on 2018/01/25 03:03
Pokémon in general are awesome to me. Pokémon go makes it a reality of being able to interact with Pokémon, not fully. Pokémon go is a great way to help me start walking around when there is a new Pokémon nearby. (however I’m never successful. 😂) But however, as amazing as this game is, I still wish you were able to interact with the Pokémon on a new level. In the Nintendo Pokémon games, you have the ability to play games, feed it, pet it, and raise its happiness. However this isn’t the case for Pokémon go. Giving players the experience to get to know their Pokémon and grow closer to them makes the game a lot more enjoyable, and gives perks in the actual game. Such as raising its happiness level, (which makes certain Pokémon evolve), raises its accuracy when it has higher happiness levels, and makes the Pokémon a lot more friendly, and more obedient. If the creators of Pokémon go just added this feature, I would be playing Pokemon go NON STOP. Literally, I would probably not stop playing. 😂 I’m sorry for rambling about, I’m done preaching. Thanks for listening to my wishes and my sincere gratitude for the creators, of Pokémon Go.
Game is insanely fun, but could certainly improve
by A raging customer on 2018/12/03 04:12
Me and my friends play this 12:00pm to 7:30pm like every day on the weekends now, it’s just so fun to compete and conquer your own city/town. The only problem is how easy that is to do. Gym battling is heavily, HEAVILY favored towards the attacker. The attacker can dodge attacks, bring 6 Pokémon to the fight and try as many times as they like to defeat the gym, and they can bring their friends to help out. The defender can only put one Pokémon(per person, that is), which degrades in power stupidly fast (like, 100-0 overnight) and you can’t even effectively repair them because you can only give so many berries at a time. If you want to keep a Pokémon in a gym at maximum strength, you’d basically have to work/live in radius of it which is like 50 meters. In addition, you can only get 50 pokecoins maximum each day from your gyms, total. So it doesn’t matter how many you are defending, you will always only get 50 per day, and one 3 use incubator, for hatching Pokémon out of eggs, costs 100. I just wish they’d make Pokémon battling like it is in the Nintendo games, where its turn based. Or atleast they could dial back the CP degradation, like, tenfold

A Shame To The Pokemon Brand
by Great Card Details! on 2019/04/18 20:28
If a Garbadour and a Ditto had an egg, this would be it. Since the inception of the app, the Trainer Club Account login service continues to be problematic with an infamous error called “GPS Signal Not Found (11)”, or the uncontrollable “Login Failed.” The Trainer Club servers are so unstable and unpredictable that they might as well have been transferred to the Google data, and shut down altogether. If you have a cellular data plan just for this app, you can already go ahead and cancel it. Or you could go home as usual, and pretend like this app doesn’t exist. Why, you ask? Because it’s a waste of time on an unfixable bug. This app is best played on Wi-Fi, and apparently runs for Trainer Club Accounts on Wi-Fi only. Not only that, but consider where you live before downloading this app, or spending any money to gamble on catching them all. If you live in a residential area with no pokestops or gyms for miles on end, prepare for trouble. Without leeching off a friend’s gifts every day, you will not be capable of receiving any pokeballs to catch so much as a pikachu with a high flee ratio. Legendary Gym battles? Surely you jest! No one in a small town could manage, much less bother with a 45k CP raid. Raids are just as dumb, pointless, and unrewarding as gym battles. Have fun spinning disks all day... if there are any.
I have a question for you

Does NOT work!! Just stays stuck with the “Loading” icon spinning on ALL devices and ALL platforms
by asttn3 on 2019/04/18 17:13
My daughter was very excited to play this game and she was having trouble logging in in the website as well as the app. So I tried logging in on my computer AND iPhone 8 Plus and that did the same thing... Sooo then I downloaded the app on my phone and tried logging in and it STILL just sits on the login screen “Loading” and neither of us have yet to get any further after MANY unsuccessful attempts on multiple devices MANY times!! We even tried reinstalling the app and no luck there either...This is very frustrating and just makes her not want to play this anymore because it’s not worth the wasted time and frustration and the time spent getting NOWHERE🙄😡

by malexgope on 2019/04/18 15:41
el juego es interesante y en general entretenido, pero tiene fallos en sus mecánicas. las monedas a veces se suman y a veces no (he perdido cientos de monedas solo porque no se acumularon). a veces camino varios km pero nunca salen los huevos porque cuando reviso su información dice que llevan 0/1km aunque haya caminado mas de 3km. siento que eso arruina el juego completamente.
Shiny
by vmharrison84 on 2019/04/18 15:23
Not enough shiny spawn, especially during events. Currently we have the bunery, jigglypuff, event, but no shines over 400 pokemon caught, and still none.
Shouldn’t still be having these problems
by rehcralam on 2019/04/18 14:39
Played since release and the game still has many bugs that haven’t been fixed since the beginning, they need to reinvest in actually making this game better
Hatch Pokemon Egg

Soon after I got off work at 3pm I notification for Pokémon Go saying Egg about to hatch soon I got on Pokémon Go I didn’t see my egg hatch into a Pokémon what happened with that
Great game!!
by childishgavin0 on 2019/04/18 14:24
This review is merely to offer a small suggestion that a few players, and myself, have thought up. We believe the entire community would benefit from the ability to see when other trainers are near you “in-app” and without being a friend. In example, I live in a less than perfect neighborhood, and can never be sure if anyone is out raiding or doing group events. This is where the social tracker would come into effect, allowing me to see “pings” or datapoints that represent other players in my area, in real-time, on the games already advanced mapping system. Other than that, the game is beautiful and runs perfectly!
One of the best games around!
by Cinnamon toaster on 2019/04/18 13:38
This game came a long way from it’s unfortunate start. The developers constantly improve the game with new content and features that make the game extremely fun and fresh. While it isn’t perfect, Pokémon go is one of my favorites and always will be a blast to play.
Can we please trade or battle far away from our freinds?
by PJ5533 on 2019/04/18 13:08
My freinds live far away and i never get to see them as much but can there be a thing were you could battle or trade them far away once a week? But it will cost 25,000 stardust to do it
No one plays
by Oblivious 23 on 2019/04/18 12:28
No one in my area ever plays the game, need an app to communicate to people where raids are at, every time I go to a legend raid no one is around, if you battle the Pokémon by yourself should lower the CP of the Legendary Pokémon, the fewer the People the less the CP should be, very unfair game when no one plays in your area.
Niantic still allows pokemon to be named slurs
by Evielemental on 2019/04/18 09:32
This is totally unacceptable.
Good overall, needs improvement.
by Thatbandkiddude on 2019/04/18 04:16
I have been playing Pokémon go since it first came out in 2016 and think that overall it’s a great game. I loved when they added in gyms, raids, friends, pvp, etc. The current gym reward system is not good in my opinion. The old system allowed players to be rewarded for all the time they spend in a gym, but now we are only rewarded for about 2 hours of holding a single gym and we can only collect the rewards once we are kicked out of the gym. I understand that changing back to the old system for gym rewards would basically eliminate in-app purchases, but there needs to be a change. If I am strong enough to hold 8 gyms for 2 days a piece, I should be rewarded with more than 50 pokecoins for those gyms. Another suggestion is to allow trainers to give other trainers items from their inventory, i.e. I have 1 of every evolution item but I do not need them; my friends need them so instead of just deleting them out of my inventory I’d rather give them away to my friends. One small issue I have is that occasionally the app does not track my location accurately while I am using it, causing my character to run around sporadically until it finally settles on where I am actually located. I have also noticed that no matter what the weather conditions are outside, Pokémon go gives me the hazardous weather conditions notification when I open the app. I get that this is Indiana and the weather changes at the drop of a hat, but today it was 65 and sunny. I also wish EX raid gyms had a slightly different appearance that way you could know that it was an EX raid gym before getting close to the gym. I love the current friendship system, as it encourages me to interact with my friends who also play the game. I have a large group of friends who play and we are constantly sending gifts to each other. While I do like that we can buy bag and storage upgrades with pokecoins, I also wish it could be part of the awards for leveling up. Many times I have leveled up and subsequently ran out of item storage space due to the rewards. If we could get extra storage equal to the amount of items we receive it would allows us not to be forced to delete some of the reward items we receive from leveling up. I have a slight issue with the chance of shiny Pokémon during events in which we’re told we can catch shiny Pokémon. During the current Eggstravaganza event, we’re told we can catch shiny buneary but out of the 59 buneary I have caught, not a single one has been shiny. That does not include the 10 I have fled from because they were not shiny. In events where we are told we have a chance to encounter a shiny, the chance should be at worst 1:50, and I’d say at best 1:25. Other than the few issues I mentioned, Pokémon go is an overall great game who I would suggest to anyone.
Game needs to expand
by aimaferd on 2019/04/18 03:44
I was never in to Pokémon as a kid(I know, gasp.) but started playing Pokémon to connect with my husband. We played in the first town we lived in and then second. We just moved a third time and are in shock that we live in a bigger city and there aren’t nearly as many stops or gyms. We are at a hotel before we can get into a house and there is no way that I can get to a stop safely by foot..... and we are on a Main Street.... we are very disappointed.
What I think about Pokémon go!
by pokemonlover744 on 2019/04/18 03:03
What I think about Pokémon go is it is an amazing opportunity to catch amazing rare and legendary Pokémon. When I am playing Pokémon go I feel like Pokémon are really Real! I have only one question about Pokémon go can you upgrade it to where you can design your own team and design your own Pokémon. This is what I think is so amazing about Pokémon GO. Thank you for listening to I have to say about Pokémon go!
☹️
by Galefan on 2019/04/18 02:46
I love Pokémon go but I set up my account and it wouldn’t let me sign in I spent hours watching the poké ball just spin back and forth
Good game but alolan Pokémon
by Someonehfs on 2019/04/18 02:12
In the Pokédex it won't let me see the normal form of Pokémon and only shows the alola form.
Thanks Niantic
by usecodetfue on 2019/04/18 01:41
I am always walking around and getting the exercise I should be getting I am so happy that this game is here right now and I hope it never leaves the App Store thank you Niantic for what the game has provided.
The poses
by 7/8Time on 2019/04/18 00:52
I love the game (I have been collecting cards since 2012, so this was really cool for me) but there are a few problems with the female poses. 1: the glasses are all messed up on the first two poses of the female avatar. Please fix! 2: the backpacks are messed up on a few of the poses on both genders. 3: I would like a truly “idle” pose. The “idle” pose for the women has more weight on the right foot, and I would like an evenly-distributed weight pose, like the male “idle” pose. The new poses are even “sexier” and as a younger teenager and an activist, I don’t want a sexy character. Make this new pose and I know at least two people who would make the purchase.
Coin daily limit
by smartazz22 on 2019/04/18 00:28
I love this game!! I have been playing since the first week of its release.Only a few things need to change back! My major issue, what is up with the daily limit of coins!!!? 50 per day!?!?! That’s such bulls***!!! I’m thinking of not playing because it seems to me that you guys are pushing for a “pay to play” game! I want to give a 5 star review but I just can’t because of my “pay to play” feeling. You guys need to fix that daily limit! I had six gyms over eight hours each and got only 50 coins total!!

Every bug fix causes 2 more to appear.
by funma on 2019/04/17 23:47
Niantic takes no time to fix game breaking bugs. For instance, they have known there is an issue with Adventure Sync feature and distance tracking for at least a month and have nothing to correct it. Then they start and even that is heavily reliant on distance tracking without acknowledging the issue. Maybe one day the cash flow will slow and they’ll finally take time to fix the game. Until then, not my cup o tea.
I love Pokémon go!

So, I see you added Niantic Kids, but here’s the thing. I’m not going to make another account and lose all my Pokémon, and I know for sure my brother isn’t either. So can you make a way to transfer it or just add it to Pokémon Trainer Club. Thanks (maybe).

The app will not authenticate my user name and password now. It’s been that way for well over a week, so cannot play at all. The one it did log me in was late at night, then wouldn’t authenticate the next morning. What’s going on with your servers???
A little weird.
by unizap on 2019/04/17 20:36
It will say it is raining, when it will be completely sunny. That is weird. Also, how do you expect us to evolve a magicarp for a mission? There are barely any out there. Right now I like the game, but can we get 100 coins a day instead of 50? 50 seems a little small. I love Pokémon I have cards, I watch the TV, and, now I play 2 Pokémon games. And one is yours. And why is there blue and yellow clothing but no red? And can you make one pair of glasses free? We need different hair styles because what if a boy wears a ponytail or something? I think you should dress your buddies too, you could buy the clothes and it would be really cool. Also, how can weather be dangerous while it is merely slightly cloudy out? And if you beat a big raid with people you almost can never get the Pokémon! It is a good game overall though it crashes but it just needs a update and then it will be 5 star. -PowerKitten12
Will not work
by Laccrosse on 2019/04/17 19:51
I was just starting and I tried to catch a Pokémon and it did not work. I tried a bunch of times and all it did was say that it’s not working right now. It needs to have a bug update our it won’t work.
3 Years later - still have server issues
by RAGE-inator on 2019/04/17 19:47
Aside from being very redundant and repetitive, the game rewards players who pay with real money over non-paying players. There is no sure-fire way to obtain in-game currency at a decent rate. It is a pay-to-win scenario. The servers are absolutely abysmal and they become even worse during events/raids, to the point of the game failing to load until the event/raid is over. Would not recommend to any Pokémon fan unless they are a fan of being constantly disappointed and infuriated.
Chatting
by mateo im 9 on 2019/04/17 19:11
Hi so I was eating pizza and I met this guy who also played Pokémon go and ill probably never eat there again so I’m asking if u could make an update where you can chat with you’re friends if their far away
Just lost a legendary Pokémon
by ZacRalNase on 2019/04/17 17:35
I spent months finishing a the research missions and I got a Pokémon out of it. It was a rock type and my friend told me it was legendary. All of a sudden the game just decided to crash and when I logged back on all of the rewards were gone and I didn’t get to keep the legendary.
Very lame
by Joselb09 on 2019/04/17 16:49
I mean what’s the point in having berries if they don’t even work?!?! What’s the point in having friends when they don’t even send gifts!?!? What’s the point when pretty much we run into the same Pokémon over and over and over!?!? I can’t simply leave my city to go look for Pokémon! I mean this game has so much more to develop! You are loosing a long term Pokémon fan. Truly yours
Great exercise app for a while
by Kurotsubasa on 2019/04/17 16:43
Disappointed in legendary capture rate. Quit after spent 10 bucks. I want my money back.
Great for all ages!
by Skrapalicious on 2019/04/17 14:37
It was a great game to play side by side with my daughter who didn’t grow up with Pokémon like my generation did and now we watch the show together now too after our walks. Keeping the game simplified helps with this core interaction rather than convoluting the game with too much intricacies as I see a lot of older players complaining about. For a free game of such a popular franchise you all should just be grateful and enjoy the exercise and interaction with others. I have met people all over of all ages by going to raids, catching Pokémon in public places like the mall, the post office, parks, etc. The game is continually updated and upgraded, Niantic has done a great job with this one.
Super Pokémon go
by Frozenextreme22 on 2019/04/17 14:35
Me and my boyfriend play Pokémon go all the time it’s such a fun game! I recommend everyone that loves Pokémon to get the app. It gets you to spend more time with your friends and with your partner. It also gets you to go outside and get steps and exercise. Go Pokémon go!
Annoyed
by jkent37 on 2019/04/17 13:54
Overall easy and fun. But if you are like most you won’t like the game. I live in a small place so to get all to cool Pokemon in gyms is almost impossible. The power of them are too strong so I will never be able to catch them. And only boring things spawn around me because of where I live. Easy and fun at first but gets boring, and you will never be able to win raids.
5 STARS FOR EPICNESS
by Jhedjshdishdishi on 2019/04/17 13:13
BEST GAME EVER!!! One thing though...you should be able to get eggs from Pokestops even if your bag is full. I walk so much that I get all the free poke balls from the rewards, and I can no longer get eggs anymore. If you spin pokestops you should at least get eggs if your bag is full. EVERYTHING ELSE IS AMAZING!!!!

Can no longer evolve

Can no longer evolve Pokémon. Uninstalled and reinstalled, evolved one and now it closes the window again.
I don’t know what’s the hold up
by Dude It! on 2019/04/17 08:36
This game won’t even let me login! I made the account, which took forever because it kept deleting my password. Then I tried to login with my new account. It kept saying that the account never existed. I know it exists I’m not stupid. This game is frustrating in the beginning. I don’t know if the rest is because I can’t login!! Do not get this game unless you are prepared to spend 2 hours making an account.
Question
by Frankk Oceann on 2019/04/17 07:34
I started playing the day this game first aired. It was awesome. Since then, I pick it up every now and then but still kinda butt hurt that I’m level 25 and still haven’t even gotten a single 10K egg yet... is it just my luck or...?
Bugged

by Head5up on 2019/04/17 02:22
So, I love the game. I went from sitting behind a television all day playing Xbox, to pulling an average of 100 km of activity a week. I almost have zero complaints. My only complaint is, in the gameboy version of Pokémon, one would battle any trainer that passed line of sight. I feel, as do many of my other friends who play, the ability to battle other players should be granted at Good Friends. Imagine a day like Community Day, and you make all kinds of new friends, send one gift become Good Friends. Boom let us battle!

And add the full Eevee evolution because my sister has almost all of them. And are town Lompoc is going to have a spring festival called music and arts it starts on April 19 -21. We also have a summer festival!

Love this game, but plz help
by Dhope Jro on 2019/04/16 23:29
Hey, I have became a heavy Pokémon Go player. I absolutely love this game, but something highly irritated me. I watched both my best friends catch a ditto with a poke ball. I threw and ultra ball, it gave one shake popped out and fled. A day or two later my brother hopped on and caught a ditto who quit playing. I traded for two, but they didn’t count towards getting Mew. Soon as I catch a ditto I’m spending more money on this game. Please randomly select and send a few dittos in my path, Thankyou.
Apple should pull the app
by panza gato on 2019/04/16 23:19
The app kicks you out of the capture scene right before you can catch a legendary pokemon (in my case, Latios) as though it’s having trouble loading, but it does it with full reception. When you complain to the developer, the bot gives you a false message that somebody will contact you soon, but nobody ever does. It’s a scam to charge people money to invest in game play, block them from getting difficult achievements, and refuse to even allow people access to tech support to fix the problem. Apple should pull the app from the store until they stop intentionally defrauding customers.

Make so you can trade the same Pokémon more than once

Trading is a great thing to complete a Pokédex but if you trade so you can trade it with another account but you can’t that is dumb because then you can’t get it for the other account witch pist me off and now I can’t trade a kabutops or a cloyster so plz make it so you can trade the same Pokémon more than once

RAIDS ARE TRASH
by ClashMan01374828 on 2019/04/16 21:24
Guaranteed LOSS when doing a raid!
Awesome game but one flaw
by thecrazys1imeYT on 2019/04/16 21:15
So I LOVE the idea of putting a Pokémon game and a excersise game together; I love that it gives you WARNINGS before you play; I love the events in it; the only problem is that it needs internet. See, I am not old enough to get a job, therefore I have no data service or whatever, and I basically live in the forest, so the internet is horrible. If the game creators are reading this, please make it to where you can play without internet, so that when you connect to internet, you’re data saves.
Since I purchased in-game currencies...
by Linerd0704 on 2019/04/16 20:45
That should mean I am entitled to at least some customer services? Instead what I got was a cold message of “we won’t be able to provide personalized response to the bug you reported”. But the bug that I reported affected my gameplay and caused me losses, not just some inconvenience. The most recent one being an app disconnection that glitched all my friends out of the catching screen of a raid boss and we were put into the lobby again despite having finished the raid and getting the items. I guess Niantic wouldn’t even give me back my raid pass.
Great game BUT
by jordan craker on 2019/04/16 20:43
I wish that you had a option that it would let you not have to walk you could gest sit down and you could tap and the character would walk where you tapped Pokemon Go please add this to the game a lot more people would play the game!

Truly love this game... just wish...
by Hijrjsiduusuususu on 2019/04/16 20:40
I love this game it is truly amazing since I was really late into the Pokémon playing experience (parent not letting me have it). Ever since a kid I always wanted a ditto AND I FOUND ONE. I was so happy but then the ban on ditto in pvp came around and I couldn’t find many times to use my ditto in gym battles since I’m always moving. So I just wish there were more opportunities to use this Pokémon. Other than that this game is truly great and I recommended it to all my friends. Keep up the good work Niantic!
They should add styles of hair
by BigAdamAndLittleAdam on 2019/04/16 20:40
Instead of having one set of hair they should have more I’m kinda getting bored of the same hair over and over again like every time I see the hair I’m like again With the weird hair I mean if your trying to get to look like ash’s it doesn’t really look like it so if you would have more hair and if you do make it free. So if you would at it please that would be a great update
New Feature Request
by Kryptyyk on 2019/04/16 20:31
I grew up on Pokémon, and it’s one of my favorite game franchises! Although this game had a rough start on its release it’s become a favorite of mine. And with the emphasis on waking and eggs in the game, I think adding some sort of breeding feature would be awesome! They could make it to where you can only put 2 Pokémon at a time in the “breeding” section, and after a time period (depending on rarity and general power of the Pokémon) they would produce an egg with varying distance needed to hatch based on the species, rarity, and power of the parents. This would be an awesome feature if added!
Niantic strikes again.
by DaRussian2 on 2019/04/16 20:26
I recently went back to the game after they fixed its constant crashing. Today I raided to get a Latios, when out of nowhere it was a Shiny Latios!!!!! However, apparently 4g LTE network triggers connection errors that prevent me from catching the GUARANTEED Shiny Latios. I checked my box to see if it gave it to me and it didn’t. The worst part is that the group I was raiding with told me the Shiny Latios was guaranteed. I had hopes of claiming my 1st Shiny legendary. But I was sadly mistaken. I would appreciate it if you would give me the guaranteed Shiny legendary I should have caught today.
I hate you

Could Be Better
by Nik7319 on 2019/04/16 18:37
Everything was going great and I love the game but I gave it low stars because I had not been able to evolve any of my Pokémon nor has my steps been accurately accounted for.
Pokeballs should regenerate!! 😩
by hernameisnotknown on 2019/04/16 18:16
I miss this game 😭 I’d had this app installed less than a day, but my poor aiming skills and knack for attracting troublesome pokemon who required multiple attempts, I ran out of Pokeballs! I live in a remote location and don’t currently have transport, so can’t get more anytime soon. 👎 But there’s so much room for improvement on this app- I finally downloaded it after all this time and hype and the graphics are so poor and totally lack detail. There’s no notification feature that lets you know when a Pokemon is nearby when you have the app closed- maybe it could make the sound that Pokemon makes! And it should make sense where Pokemon are, based on where they’d be found naturally. Oh and you should be able to tag a Pokemon- if you’re out of Pokeballs or think it’s too powerful for the ones you have or you don’t have a treat to calm it- and then you could have the satisfaction of finding it again.
Really fun, but PLS fix network/GPS error
by Cknight2 on 2019/04/16 18:12
I have been having fun playing this game with friends and family, but with the new update the app is useless and if not fixed soon I’ll have to delete it so it’s not wasting space on my home screen. Please fix this for the players that truly enjoy the app. Still worth 5 stars, but currently broken :(
Great But...
by CoolCreeper594 on 2019/04/16 17:56
Overall, this game is awesome. What i don’t like though is the fact that some of the Pokemon evolutions are missing. For example, the eeveelutions sylveon, glaceon, and leafeon are not in this game. They have several updates where they upgraded things like gyms and pokestops, but they never fixed this problem. Again, I would totally recommend this app to other people, but this stuff is annoying and needs to be fixed.
Found a bug with the new pose system
by Hero of our time Chrom on 2019/04/16 16:25
So, I put my character on a pose that I haven’t bought yet, and I switched it back to the default pose, and the Pokeball was still in the trainer’s hand, and the only way I know how to fix it is to switch any article of clothing. I will be happy to change my rating to five stars once this bug is fixed.

Unable to log in on the app.
by flyingajoshi on 2019/04/16 15:30
Can the developer reach out to me as to why I can’t log in to the app with my new account but I can log in to the website? Very frustrating as 2 family members are ready to play but I can’t join in. I also tried requesting a password reset (even though I know the password & am able to log in on the web) but it says it cannot resend. What is the solution? Thanks.

Please please please increase the max storage, most of the time I don’t bother playing is because I’m stirring at 1990/2000 Pokemon with none I care to transfer. Would make the game a lot more enjoyable (& make you more money too)

Should be called PokemonGo 2.0
by Lu adjust on 2018/12/09 15:45
This game had a rocky start. It was super popular and the servers couldn’t handle it. Now the developers push a new event almost all the time. Getting mew was fun and challenging(Ditto). Celebi and Spiritomb were arduous to obtain but Meltan has been extremely challenging because I don’t have a Nintendo switch. They have also pulled off some very awesome community days once a month where you get a similar ambiance to when the game first came out. Tons of people playing! They also used one of them to introduce a new mythical Pokémon in a very creative way. I have enjoyed the new raid and research updates. We just need more ways to get silver pinaps. Trading has been introduced to the game in a way that doesn’t ruin it and trading rare Pokémon with strangers is costly but with people you interact with daily it’s cheap. The game is mostly free to play but I have personally spent some money on it. There was an egg event and I wanted more incubators. Anyways I wasn’t ever forced to buy anything and it isn’t like other apps where they throw sales in your face as pop ups every time you log in. You can earn 50 in game coins per day without paying a dime but that can be drastically easier or harder based on where you live. In the past year this game has drastically changed into something truly addictive and fun to play. I can’t wait to see what they bring to the game next year.
I’m always outside, thanks Niantic!
by vivalagloria! on 2018/08/09 15:22
I am loving all of the events and things we have to look forward to. Community days were a great idea. Friends and trading were wonderful updates that added a lot to the game, though I wish that there was an option to toggle off the exact location and map directions in the gift you send people. Even better if you could turn on/off per friend level or even individual friends as well as an all on/off. Also, if you could create a kind of lure for gyms where raids are happening, and nearby players could see that and head over because they know people are there to raid. Lure could last 5-10min so people can wait for it to run out (and if they don’t want to wait, they don’t use the lure). And nearby players can view the raid and leave like a thumbs up or thumbs down so others know someone is on their way. The GO community has really come together and made raid planning possible in a lot of places, but this would be more inclusive to those that haven’t joined their local community or that live rurally and have a hard time getting enough people. These are just suggestions for improvements to an already amazing game that I am pretty happy with, Pokémon GO has come a long way since those first several months of release where I always seemed to be annoyed at Niantic. So, well done :)
Suggestion
by marsyuu on 2018/11/27 19:50
I’ve played Pokémon games over 20 years. Pokémon Go is a great mobile game that combines entertainment and daily health keeping. However, as a Pokémon game, it needs more interactivity between people. Many people are waiting for PVP since the first day when the game has lunched. The current mechanics seems pretty simple (horizontal swipe, no special attack/defense, no Mega Evolution/form change, etc). For example, Deoxys and Giratina have multiple forms base on the original design, but not just catch them separately (without form change function). It looks like they are different Pokémon, but not the one who has ability to change form. Also, some Pokémon colors are weird after Niantic uses Unity 3D as game engine (e.g. Staryu). Also, Niantic should make more choices for the Style function. If people can change their in-game hair, face or add more item will be better. Finally, John Hanke has mention he is trying to bring all Niantic games to the mainland China, but it seems like not very easy. People can understand Chinese market has different policy, but it could corporate with big companies such us Tencent or NetEase to open the market. Hope people in the mainland China can play Pokémon Go as same as Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. This valuable IP made by Nintendo and Game Freak should allow everyone can join it before copy cats occupy the market. Thank you.
Great Game BUT........
by canine baker on 2018/07/17 13:28
This is a wonderful game, great to get people out and moving I definitely recommend it for people who live in populated areas and towns BUT if you live in the rural areas and the country sides of this country where service is spotty and where they placed most all the stops and gyms there is NO SERVICE then playing this game is almost worthless. As a player moving from the city to the country it almost leaves me no choice but to quit or almost forget about the game, sad because I’m a paying player. I read how Niantic was working hard at trying to come up with a resolution for RURAL players but every update and addition to the game benefits populated players. Even trying to contact help support and Niantic is a waste of time, all you will get is a return email where someone will just copy and paste the same answers over and over again, if you cared to do something about this critical issue then maybe taking a moment and conversing with the rural players may help. I hate to have to leave this game but Niantic does not seem to care if they lose their rural players and that is so sad as if you maybe took the time to work with rural players the issue could be resolved, I say to the populated players get out and have an awesome time playing this game and don’t complain about adding a couple bucks to the game it is a lot cheaper then a night out to the movies and a lot more fun with the family! Signed The forgotten rural players!
Great game but more content plz
by 5 STAR!!!!!!!!<3 on 2018/05/03 21:05
I love the game and its easy to use interface but I and all of my friends at school agree that your amazing game lacks some necissary content to be a truly great game. I belive you should add trading pokemon above all else and along with that casual battles with near by players. Now for my personal favorite addition is that some people have a daily struggle with living in a small town like mine where there is literaly 1 pokestop in all of town and you never go near it so that results in having a very limited supply of poke balls which is by far the most important item in the game because without them you cant catch anything which results in the lack of xp which means you cant level up. You cant get good cp pokemon (much less pokemon at all) which means no gyms or raids. To combat this major issue I propose you and some sort of daily spin or add more pokestops and gyms. Now I doubt you (the devs) will see this much less read it all but if you do I greatly appreciate it. Thank you as I hope this may help bring life back into this once amazing and well played game. P.S. ( I am saying this not only to make this game more fun for me but all of the friends I play this game with are compaining about a few of these issues and I would like to continue playing the game with the game with them as this is the only game I play and I fear they may quit playing if you do not add content. )
Good but could be better
by Ravenlunatyk on 2018/04/25 01:08
I’ve been playing almost since the beginning and am a daily player. Love the research tasks. I do however think niantic is a bit greedy. Let me start off by saying I buy coins at least once a month if not more during special events. With that said can you tell me why it takes me five balls to catch a 112 weedle? I’m level 38. I should catch them with the first ball. I don’t mind it head butting the ball away but it should not break free when I catch it at my level. What’s the point of golden raspberries or regular for that matter when they do nothing? Why am I 3 for 11 on latios raid? I throw great curveballs every time. I should have better odds at my level. What’s the point of the levels if you are not benefiting any where in the game? Just disappointed. Feel some thought should go in to how you do when catching either wild or raid bosses based on level otherwise it’s all meaningless. Don’t make me waste balls on crappy or low xp rats, it’s not challenging, it’s annoying. That’s why people quit or take breaks. Lures and incense are completely useless. Don’t do jack. Stop putting them in special boxes. Also sick of same ones everyday. The only time you mix it up is during special events. It’s just lazy computer script writing. Otherwise the game is fun and worth trying whether your a fan of the series or not. But have to give three stars because you work really hard to level up for NOTHING.
Rural players matter too!!
by ivel420 on 2017/11/05 03:11
I love this game and play everyday but some recent changes are really hurting rural players. I live in a town of >1500 people and we have a Pokémon base of maybe 50 players around town, many of us having full time jobs, kids, or school or any combination of the 3. Sometimes it gets really difficult to get a enough players together for raids especially legendary raids that require a group of 7-8 or more because most of the players in rural areas like this aren’t much higher level than 25.. even some of the most active players are still only 30-33. Now you’ve changed the raid timers down to 45 there will be even less raids happening in my area. Most of the raids we were able to complete have been in the last 10-15 minutes of the 1 hour raids. Also the raid boss switch is pretty lame in my opinion the level 4s aren’t even worth while anymore at least before every once in a while you could get a snorlax or t-tar. Now the best thing is golem and what avid players don’t already have an army of them from fighting the legendary birds? Sableye and porygon are the only decent changes but now there is nothing with the strength of alakazam or machamp that is worth while for tier 3 and lower. Your changes have been for the worse and you are just making your fan base angrier with these useless changes when you should be focused on giving us thing we all want like trading, pvp, mew, and the rest of gen 2!!
A LOT better than before, improvements still needed
by AIcoholic on 2018/09/21 16:33
I downloaded day one and like a vast amount of people stopped playing after 6 months. 5 months ago I got back into PoGo as a lot of my coworkers play it. The improvements are great. I still think though there are many many more simple additions that can make the game even better. Please cache the Pokédex pictures, I don’t even know why I have to suggest this. Seems like a no brainer. Raids - need a waiting room that is visible to people in your map area (not right on top of gym) that you can wait in BEFORE spending a gym pass. While in the waiting room you can ping your friends to join you (or even nearby players). I know PvP is in the works but additional gameplay is needed. The monotonous grind can definitely get old, and although new generations of Pokémon subdue this, it will eventually lead to decline in players. Mini games or additional tasks/achievements would be great. Legendary gyms is a great idea, having defensive legendaries like Regiice is almost pointless besides the dex entry. This gym could only house legendaries and you get good loot for batting legendaries. This would add another element of leveling your defensive legendaries that are non-existent in the meta. Having gyms with Pve gym leaders you need to defeat like a gauntlet (similar to the gameboy games) would be awesome!! These aren’t difficult additions, please listen to us Niantic!!!
Not gonna lie
by aahliegh on 2018/08/29 23:50
I’m not even going to lie, I’m 27 and absolutely love this game. I grew up with Pokémon and this is by far the best Pokémon game. I stopped playing for a year or so because I reached the top level and got bored with it; about 6 months ago my husband convinced me to redownload it because of the numerous new features and two more generations of Pokémon that had been added to the game. Unfortunately as of lately I’ve been having nothing but problems with getting it to load. This is now the third time in a week that I’ve had to uninstall and reinstall the game and unfortunately this time it doesn’t appear to even be reinstalling. And yes the app and phone software are all up to date and everything like that. On top of that, on my other phone, if/when the game loads it no longer loads all of the way. It’s genuinely one of the most frustrating things I’ve been dealing with because playing this game keeps me out of trouble and out of my own head. It’s definitely become my biggest hobby and biggest outlet, so when I’m stressed out to the max and it doesn’t want to load - which seems to be every single time I’m excessively stressed lately- it just makes everything worse. I was praying that these last batch of updates they did would have fixed that but I haven’t even been able to get the game to load since it updated! That is literally the only downside to it and unfortunately it’s a major one.
After a lot of work...
by Martsthefarts on 2018/07/14 20:56
I got through the bad things about this app (Making an account took forever and I got stuck on loading) I have enjoyed the good stuff. I am on a roadtrip and as such I have been able to sit down, relax, then get exercising because the game has plenty of Poké Stops in cities, suburban areas have schools as Poké Stops sometimes, and basically, as long as you are near a Poké Stop you can enjoy this app to the fullest. Partly Cloudy weather has lead to me being able to catch so many different Pokémon and within a few minutes of playing I caught an Eevee and I love my Water Pokemon that I caught so far (Water is my favorite type) and I have enjoyed being able to play this game that has encouraged me to Pokémon GO outside and get exercise! At first the app seems blank, sure, but then you walk around and find a group of Plusle, Minun, Geodude, and so many more. And thankfully catching one doesn’t scare all the others away. I haven’t caught Pikachu, one of my favorite Pokémon, but on this road-trip I feel like I am destined to find one. I don’t care if I have to walk around the campground until 10:00 At Night. I will do what all my years of playing Pokémon has taught me. I will tell myself this everytime I feel tired and there is a nearby Poké Stop. Gotta Catch ‘em All! But seriously. Don’t put yourself in danger playing this app. Even if that shiny Magikarp (The King of Carp!) is right there. Don’t drown for it.
A really good game but some disappointments
by SUPER SANICCCCC MLG on 2018/04/17 10:36
Pokémon GO is a really good game. I like the fact that the game makes you go outside to catch Pokémon. The game makes you really excited about what you are going to catch next... but there are a few thing I want to talk about, like regional Pokémon. I think that you guys at Niantic should think of something to people is the USA can catch Pokémon like mr. mine and let the people in England catch Tauros with out needing to fly there just to catch ONE Pokémon. Another thing is the Field Research. I like it a lot and when you finish it and get the “Mystery Pokémon” you either get Moltres, Zapdose, or Articuno. But when you finish it a second time around, you get the same legendary Pokémon. I think that every time you get the field research mystery encounter should be a different bird Pokémon. And after you get all the three legendary bird Pokémon, It would give you The legendary Pokémon Mewtwo, then onto the GEN two legendary Pokémon, then to the GEN three Pokémon etc, etc. I think this would be a good idea for the people who missed out on the special raids like for Mewtwo and the other Legendary Pokémon. Please make this an update because I’m only a 12-year-old boy who has been in Pokémon GO since the beginning and the only 2 legendary Pokémon I have are Entei and Moltres, which I got from the Field Research. Thank you.
Love it but....
by kenketcham on 2018/07/30 02:14
I’m gonna keep this short and sweet I’ve recently picked up Pokémon go again after about 7 months of not playing this game I once was obsessed with now I can say that it definitely has grown in a lot of ways but still things need to be changed starting with people in rural areas have a tough time really playing this game because of the lack of poke stops and variety of Pokémon given to them. I myself live in the Suburbs and also once lived in the city and FYI it’s such a drastic difference in terms of pokestops and Pokemon in general the cities are obviously flooded with both while the suburbs yet not completely empty still lacks the ability to grow within this game, but back to my point I have friends who love this game who live in much more rural areas and they just can’t really grow or have much fun with this wonderful game and they become extremely frustrated with it because they really must travel such a distance to be able to play this game it was obviously meant to be played with gym battles galore, pokestop madness and obviously new Pokédex entries. So I conclude this with Niantic you guys have really made this game fun again but please show more of a distribution of Pokémon, gyms, and pokestops to all your players across the country because I want this game to do better then it has ever been. P.s. sorry for the lack of punctuation
Love this game so much, but some flaws cause it to be so frustrating
by Jaclynlou on 2018/01/18 19:42
There have been a few times where I’ve been in a very large raid group (10-20 people) and a few of us will get kicked out in the middle of the battle and we won’t be allowed back in (even when there’s time left on the clock) to catch the Pokemon. There have been times where after this glitch happens, I will still have my raid pass, but all of my Pokemon will be injured or knocked out. There are also times where I have lost my raid pass in this glitch and it causes me to have to buy another one on the spot. It’s very frustrating and embarrassing to commute far out to meet up with a raid group, only to have the game glitch out on me. I’ve been playing this game since the day it came out and glitches like this cause me to get very discouraged and flustered. That being said, I love this game so much; it truly makes my long walk into work better and more fun, AND it encourages me to go out for walks during my lunch break. I would say that it has been a very positive influence on my life and some of my friends lives. It makes my day more exciting, and it helps me feel a level of nostalgia considering I played all of the Pokemon games growing up. I hope this game is up and running forever, I just wish that some of the gym issues would get cleaned up a bit :)
Pokémon go is OK
by OldGamers01 on 2018/12/18 22:14
I like Pokémon GO it’s very simple now very hard to use and it takes you out of all of the house and help his people to walk about and explore but the one thing I have problems with is that when I logged on for the first time I was at level one and then also I had a glitch and also I became level six on the red team even though I never chose that team the problem with this Pokémon go is that the team that develop the And the support system there is terrible because when I tell him about my issue they won’t even respond to my problem I was trying to tell him that I did not pick my team and they were saying that we can’t do anything about it once you pick your team there’s nothing that you can do I also try to reset my account with my new email and I didn’t do any good like I had really had issue with the login is your for Pokémon go and the support staff on that game was terrible they need to learn to have some Consideration about their customers if there’s a problem they should take the time and look into issues instead of just sitting on the automated discussions about what we need to know stuff like that the support system was really terrible in my case I mean the game is fine not gonna lie but the support system is terrible though tech-support for their game is terrible I even went to the website and didn’t do anything about it
Best game ever
by Ugfiyxjydthfdh on 2018/07/16 16:46
Almost. I love the new trading and friend system, this has been one of my favorite games over the last couple years. But I think that you guys should add a chat system to organize raids better. It could be like a messaging system between friends only so that way there no trouble with stalking or anything negative like that but it would make it easier to organize raid parties without having to download a third party app like WhatsApp which requires you to let everyone know your phone number. Also it would be great to be able to buy great or ultra balls from the shop as well. I walked at a park near me for about 30 miles and caught every Pokémon that appeared. By the end of the walk I only received about 40 ultra balls and 50 great balls which sounds great until you consider that I walked for 9 hours. I received plenty of regular poke balls though(over 250 to be exact). One last note, I live in Miami and there are plenty of places to go play Pokémon go but sometimes I wish I could just walk around my area without having to travel to play. There’s plenty of things that could be pokestops near me but just aren’t. There are 2 churches on my corner that don’t have pokestops. Right across the street there is a building with a cool design that could be a pokestops but I refuse to download ingress just to request pokestops.
Very good game!
by epicivan on 2019/01/11 01:45
Hi I am going to tell you about all the good things about this game to me. No offense to the people who don’t like this game. This is just my opinion. First of all, I think the leveling is great, it’s not too hard or easy to level up when you are playing constantly and doing easy things. Next, I really like the types of Pokémon, like Legendary and Mythical Pokémon. Also, trading, sending gifts and battling other trainers I think really helps the other player( and you of course )get to know each other in the game and personally better. There are not many things that are bad about this game but there are some that I really want you to change. First, getting to ultra friend or higher to battle. I think you should change this because it is very hard to get to ultra friend and I really want to battle my friend that lives in the Bay Area But I live 3hr far from him! I think you should lower the level. 2nd I think you should lower the price of stardust when trading for all players. Last, I think you should give more pokecoins when the Pokémon comes back defeated. I think in the end, this game can really get to be fun and give you exercise at the same time! To me, this game is more fun than bad. So why don’t go out and play Pokémon go!
Similar to real game
by NOtaterJUSTtat on 2018/10/21 03:19
I started playing July 2016 but due to all the glitches and lack of Pokémon I stopped playing for a few years. The reason I started up again was because a friend recommended to try it. Now gifts can be exchanged, the Pokémon generations are mostly caught up, and there are a lot more stops and gyms to interact with. My main issue with this game is the lack of interaction with other players. I would like to be able to battle with nearby trainers like the real Pokémon game allows. Also during gym battles, there should be an option to switch Pokémon in between defeats. Those are the rules in a real Pokémon battle and this should be applied to this game. Pokémon should also gain experience after battles to help build them up. I understand the candy concept but those should be bonus experience/cp. I have lost a few great catches due to the glitches/network errors which is very frustrating! Other than that I enjoy catching Pokémon and spinning stops on my walk up to work through the downtown area. It’s a nice way to see the town. EDIT I forgot to mention: I’m not sure why but when I’m on the bus or in any vehicle as a passenger I should be able to spin stops for rewards not “try again later”. It doesn’t make sense to allow me the option to catch Pokémon but I can’t get stops or gain steps with my eggs or buddy.
Great, but still missing some stuff
by Tabarius Quan on 2018/06/14 17:58
I played this game on and off since it first came out in 2016. And while I think it’s a solid game, it’s still missing out on some things. There’s still really poor rural and suburban representation in Pokémon go, especially in regards to raids and pokestops. I understand if raids have to take place in towns, but it wouldn’t hurt to have at least some amount of pokestops near communities. I live near a local park and there are zero pokestops there. I understand that there’s an option to create pokestops indirectly through another Niantic game, Ingress, but from my experience that game isn’t properly optimized for newer iPhones, and the base-building system is clunky and tedious. It would make more sense for Pokémon GO players to create new pokestops in gardens and parks, so that they can more easily play the game away from the city or towns. Another minor complaint is the sound. What was the deal with the sudden degrade in sound quality? Was that for saving battery life? Another good thing to add would be to battle other players’ Pokémon directly, instead of going to a raid or a gym and battling their Pokémon there. Niantic still needs to realize that not all of their player base is willing to drive 10 miles to go catch and see Pokémon. If these issues would be fixed this game would be 5 stars.
New update is great but it might as well have totally killed the go plus device
by Holyman47201 on 2017/12/20 01:38
Update with the newest version. Really annoying bug I’m hoping it’s a bug at least. Every time you transfer or rename a Pokémon it always jumps back to the top of the list instead of staying where you were. Very annoying and time wasting change having to scroll all the time. I really like the changes in the new update. The weather pattern thing is great. The button push charge move in gym battles is a huge improvement. The spawn rates have improved. Overall a really great update. However, it has basically killed any usefulness the go plus device had. The catch rate wasn’t great before, but at least it was acceptable for what it was. That definitely changed with the update. With the weather feature causing affected Pokémon to be higher cp the plus is even worse. You just can’t catch an almost maxed out anything with a regular ball. I would suggest what I think would be a fairly easy fix. Maybe have the game automatically start a catch attempt with a suggested ball instead of a regular one every time. Ie... if it pops up and I see the circle yellow I switch to a great ball. Red goes to ultra balls. Have the game/go plus be smart enough to do the same thing. I have huge stockpiles of great and ultra balls so I’d rather the plus use those to improve the catch rate.
Love it, but needs improvement
by GamingWiizard on 2018/04/30 23:28
To start this off, I want to let you know that this is a great game. Even though it was the craze a year or two back, I’ve just started playing a week ago and love it! There’s only a couple things that I would like that might get other players back into it. First off, changing that battle system is a must. Players do not like the mad tapping and sliding you do when you battle a gym. Maybe switching it to the usual battle style will keep players happy. Secondly, I think adding battling and trading with other players will make it more enjoyable. I personally, don’t have the money to fly to another region and catch a Pokémon that is region specific. If we had trading, you could trade with someone elsewhere that might have the Pokémon. Also, the battling will keep players engaged to the point where they will try and beat their friends by catching more powerful Pokémon. Last but not least, I think you should add NPCs to the game. With the battle mechanics you could add trainers to battle against and earn rewards for winning! That would give players enough enthusiasm to go and battle trainers. Adding the evil organizations like Team Rocket could also add some spice to the game. That’s all I have, and thank you for reading!
The game has really grown
by Claydol123 on 2018/09/23 03:10
I remember when the game came out 2 years ago. It was rough around the edges at best. It was the first of its kind and was revolutionary but crashed often, servers struggled, and to path to being the best wasn’t strait forward. The game was good at keeping you active but that was about it at the start. I remember a year ago it started getting better in terms of crashing, but still the encounter rate of certain Pokémon made it seem like they actually weren’t in the game. All you could find were pidgeys and rattatas. When the legendary raids came out a spark of life struck the game but there was still a lot of room for improvement. Now it’s September 2018 and the game has grown so much. There are a lot more Pokémon, and I encounter rare ones periodically rather than never. I enjoyed the Chikorita community day earlier today as well. A crowded university with hundreds of people all doing the same thing was really fun! I crashed a few times but overall the game is a lot sturdier than it used to be, at least on the iPhone. I feel like Niantic is actually taking our worries into consideration to a certain extent. I hope the game continues to go in the right direction. With all said and done I consider the current Pokémon go 5/5.
Great Fun!!!
by YogiDBear on 2017/10/22 15:57
First let me say that I’m 53 years old, so I’m most likely not the average player of this game. I first became interested in the world of Pokémon back in 1998, when my older children discovered the TV show. Because of their heavy interest in all things Pokémon I took interest as well, trying to be a good dad. I invested HEAVILY in the card game, took the kids to weekend tournament each week, even became our local gym leader (because I was one of the rare adults who knew Pokémon as well as the children). Now we flash forward almost 20 years later an I’ve re-entered the world of Pokémon through Pokémon Go! The game is so well laid out, with quick and easy to learn game aspects, even for a newby to Pokémon. The best part of the game is that it’s design encourages the players to get out and move around. To walk and explore your town or city. Since every park, mall, restaurant, or store may be a hotspot for a new breed of Pokémon you’ve yet to catch. I’ve even been able to get my wife playing the game. Which says a lot since she almost totally avoided stuff back when our older children were heavily into the Pokémon world. This game is by far one of the best, most fun and addictive games I’ve ever played. Once you start you’ve “GOTTA CATCH EM ALL”!!!
Overall a fun game
by Chsgvfygshh on 2018/11/23 02:37
The catching system is charmingly simple yet not incredibly easy, and the game provides incentive to catch Pokémon in the form of the Pokédex. And while legendary Pokémon are obviously going to be sought after as status symbols, the gym system is painstakingly easy, but the Niantic does give pretty generous rewards for participating in gym battles, such as up to 50 premium currency a day to keep all content technically free, but I find it a chore to go out to an isolated gym or to a gym in the middle of the night just so I can make sure I cap out on 50 pokecoins a day. It is nearly impossible to fail a gym attack once you reach level 20, which isn’t a long time at all, and thus victories don’t feel fulfilling and rather tiresome. But, the game does put an emphasis on meeting up with people to battle a difficult enemy, also known as a raid, but that is the extent of difficult content, and even then you will never need more than 10 decently leveled people to breeze through a raid. I understand the combat system for raids, but I believe the gym combat system could benefit greatly from a more engaging overhaul that adds more depth. Overall, however, the charming and incredibly fun catching system compensated for the uninteresting combat system and still provides an enjoyable experience.
Good, but limited now
by MoniMe2345 on 2018/10/18 04:51
This game is great. It is fun and does get you out, but some changes have occurred which have really made the game less fun. First, there is really no way to get coins, which allow you to play, without buying them (you can get some things you need within the game but it cripples your ability to play much). So now you have to pay to play more than just the minimum. Next, there is no longer any incentive to fight to capture a gym or to hold one. You can get 50 coins per day by holding a gym - but there isn’t anything you can buy for 50 coins in the game. For instance, an incubator, which lets you hatch an egg, costs 150 coins. And that’s it. You don’t get any points or experience beyond just practice fighting and you Pokémon’s are stuck in the gym until someone takes it over - which there isn’t much incentive to do. I’ve had Pokémons sit there for days waiting for someone to take the gym. I’ve noticed players now no longer support their pm’s in the gym if they are under attack and some players put in very week pm’s so they don’t have to waste resources to revive. As more players figure this out, fighting for and holding gyms will become a thing of the past. And people without money to spare will find the game frustrating and limited. So sad, because it really was a great, community game once.
Not pleased currently
by rDh 02 on 2018/02/09 14:56
I’ve been playing Pokémon go since it first came out. There have probably only been 2 game apps I’ve ever used for this long. There are two things I’m currently unhappy about. How difficult it is for rural players to get some action. It is at least 5 miles to the closest pokestop—-there’s no way of walking that far, which I thought was the main idea of PG (getting people more active). There is NO Pokemon spawning near my home. I can walk from one end of my road to the other end and there are 2 spots where they spawn. 2 lousy spots. Once I catch what’s there, it takes a while for a new one to spawn so what am I supposed to do? Turn around and walk the miles again for 2 more Pokemon? And the raid battles. There is no way on earth that a small town will ever get 17-20 people together to catch a legendary out here. It’s impossible even with social media. My second complaint is the lack of revives! I understand that you want to make money on the game but come on! Pokémon go is one of the few games I have spent money on. I have mainly bought lucky eggs and incubators. No way am I gonna sink money into revives. I guess when all my Pokémon faint I will just quit the game. It wouldn’t be as bad if there was a way to earn coins in the game. I used to earn a few coins by defending gyms but you hardly earn any coins currently.
Not Right
by pinkdiva702 on 2018/10/25 02:39
I have been playing Pokémon go for several years now and about a year ago started getting into the raid. Until today I actually enjoyed playing Pokémon and doing the raids. I got the chance to do the new raid boss Giratina and actually had enough people to down the raid boss just before the time ran out. However I DIDNT GET Giratina because it would NOT stay in the White ball. I gave it berry’s but NOTHING WOULD HELP. I was not over throwing the balls and I didn’t miss 1 time but didn’t get the Pokémon because it would NOT stay in the ball AT ALL didn’t matter if I threw a berry or not. We do the raids to win the Pokémon and to do all that work and not win the Pokémon because it won’t stay in the ball is very wrong. It’s hard enough to actually find enough players to down a boss like Giratina where I live which is why I’m so very frustrated this happened. I’m sure some might think I’m just complaining but this is the 2nd time this has happened. I fully believe something needs to be done about this. If we are given these special white balls then it should be very hard for the Pokémon to brake out so we actually get the prize we are there for not break out as soon as it’s caught ever time. If that’s the case then why give us the special white balls .I don’t know if this has been happing to others I’m sure I’m not the only one but I can say if this happens again I will stop playing it Pokémon!!
Battery Drainer
by lolkitty21 on 2018/08/24 17:48
I really loved this game back in the beginning, and I forgot why I deleted it till I recently reinstalled it to my phone. It is a major battery killer. Ever since I downloaded it three days ago, I have been dealing with my phone randomly powering off, even when I made sure to completely close the app, or I turn off my phone at half power, then go to power it back on after a few hours, only to find that my previously charged phone is suddenly dead and won’t turn back on. I don’t know if it is just the app, or there is something more to it, but it is rather coincidental that I started having these problems shortly after downloading the app. Today, my battery life was stalled at 100% for over three hours, and I did everything I could to figure out how to fix it, including restarting the phone and meddling with the settings. The battery percentage only started going down after I deleted the app. Like I said, I doubt it was the only thing causing the power drain, but the app certainly wasn’t helping, and I hadn’t ever had these problems that I listed till the app was on my phone. Which is too bad, because I love this app, it’s cute, and I really would like to catch more Pokémon, but I don’t want to risk it. I don’t know if I am the only one who has this problem, but whatever it is, I hope it is resolved and I can download it again one day.
Great Concept, But It Could Use Polish
by RetroMarioGamer on 2017/12/23 17:34
So, Pokemon games are about getting Pokemon and pitting those Pokemon against other Pokemon, right? Well this game is just that, but without the second part. Sure, catching Pokémon in the real world with AR is genius, but it gets old after a while. And the only way to battle other Pokemon is going to gyms. Now, what’s smart about the gyms is that you need to be a certain level to enter certain gyms, which encourages you to level up more by, again, getting Pokemon. Now, what I mean by the battling part of the game not being there is this: it sort of feels like an afterthought. If your Pokemon faint in battle, you’re in for some SERIOUS grinding. First, you have to get potions from pokestops so you can use them to heal your Pokemon. But oh no! If your Pokemon aren’t leveled up enough, you can’t heal them! Wanna level them up? Sorry! Nope! YOU have to be a certain level in order to level up your Pokemon, AND THEN you can heal them. This is literally the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever experienced in a video game. Granted, gym battles are optional, but if the option is available, don’t make it so freaking tedious!! Although, I have hope that you will fix these problems, because this game used to have SEVERE internet issues, and you fixed that. So please, listen to my complaints and fix the grinding issues!!
I really love this game but I think it could use some features
by x.Hendrix.x on 2018/06/11 04:24
I genuinely love Pokémon Go. I have stuck with it since it came out. There are some things I think would be cool to add. Trading Pokémon would be great but I understand why they haven’t released it yet. There is no defeating the game or beating a final boss or anything there is just filling your Pokédex, which with trading would then be too easy. I feel like you should be able to see other players in game their like avatars I don’t see why battling other trainers in the game would be a bad feature to add I think it would be fun. Also in the other Pokémon games there were healing stations, I get we have revives and pokestops but I have found it very hard to get enough to actually do battles. I have to say rural areas should have more pokestops and more accessible Pokémon. When the game first came out I lived 7 miles from the nearest pokestop. I have to get a ride into the small town near my where I lived and even then there were like 5 pokestops throughout the town. Maybe a way to message other players would be nice because I only know like 4 people near me interested in playing this game so if I could like message people and tell them I’m going to this raid battle come join that would be cool.
Love this game. A few recommendations
by Buddy💡 on 2018/11/21 02:43
I love this game, I think it’s really fun and it was complicated at first, but now that I’ve been playing for a while (not even that long), and with the help of my mom an brother we’ve been able to figure it out. The only thing I have to say is about the avatar customizing. And it’s mostly on the hair. Ok it’s all about the hair. There aren’t that many colors to chose from, I mean I guess there’s enough for you to get a color close to yours (if you want your avatar to look like you of course). Like if you’re a red head and have more orangey hair the closest you get is a red that you can only get by dyeing your hair. Another part is the hairstyles. All there is, is medium length hair up in a ponytail. I mean it’s pretty accurate to my hair but not every girl has that length of hair and wears it up like that. I have a friend who has a pixie cut. I have a friend who has hair almost up to her chin. What about girls with curly hair? All they get is somewhat wavy hair put up in a ponytail. I know this is a long thing just about the hair, and I don’t even know what it’s like for the guys. Anyways. Sorry for this long thing about hair, but thought I should say something. Still love the game!
Niantic choosing fight against cheaters over legit players
by AndrewTre on 2018/06/22 17:42
With my account nearing 2 years of age, which will happen on the 7th of July, I have been waiting for trading since launch, and I have to say I’m disappointed, the IV reroll destroys any want for me to trade with my friends, I don’t have any interest in spending the stardust for a Pokémon I would otherwise transfer if I caught. Though I understand that it keeps cheaters and spoofers from acquiring perfect Accounts that much faster I believe it really screws the people that have been playing for 2 years now. Having played for two years, my Pokédex is pretty much full aside from regional exclusives and I looked forward to this as being an ability to fill these holes in my Pokédex with people I raid with a couple of times a week, knowing this is going to cost a million stardust, or make me wait 90 day’s for it to drop to a reasonable cost, has completely deterred me from trading all together. At the very least I would like to see the IV reroll be taken away. People are going to cheat, there’s no way around it, but I should be able to trade the High IV Pokemon that would make a much bigger impact on my friends teams then they would on mine .
I have 21 Sinnoh Stones :/
by FelixTruvere on 2019/02/16 10:02
Please stop “awarding” me Sinnoh Stones in my tedious, boring battling of weak computer-bot trainers. I was just awarded 5 of them :( PLEASE take them back they’re filling up my space... yes you want me to purchase more space... got it 👍🏼 Look man... I’m level 40 and I sure hate to think I’ve come this far to see things become THIS boring now with not so much to look forward to. I’ll suppose I’ll ask for more stardust? Niantic, you owe us more. I’m not talking about owing anything to these new level 25ers, I’m talking about your REAL level 40 trainers with 50 Arcanines & 50 Vaporeons evolved from July, 2016. My satisfaction of pleasure in passing time with this game is now down to only being able to power up lesser Pokémon that aren’t powered up yet. I can’t show off my legendary Pokémon in gyms so.... where are my bragging rights? What are you giving your die-hard gamers? What respect can we show off now that we make level 40? Game over? Can you at least throw us a level 40 jacket for free in the shop??? Something to show off? No one knows or cares that my Mewtwo is powered all the way & maxed above 4000 CP because I CANT SHOW THAT OFF; SO WHATS THE POINT? Trainers like Ash (let’s face it), want bragging rights. Let me AT LEAST leave my legendary Pokémon at gyms. At LEAST give that thrill to your level 40ers. I need more.
Bug is preventing me from having fun
by gbunnyhop on 2018/12/01 06:12
Don’t get me wrong, I love this app to death. It gets me motivated to go on walks at my local park which has enough stops and gyms to keep me busy for hours. The problem I’m having as of recently is that every time I open the app and catch one pokemon, the surrounding pokemon disappear and then the screen has a loading icon for a bit. Sometimes the pokemon come back, but most times they don’t. It’s been frustrating because when I open the app and I have good pokemon around me that I want to catch I can never catch them all because they disappear somehow and never come back. I’m also having a problem where pokemon right now are requiring to many balls/berries for me to catch when there HP is like 400 or less (more around 250 HP) but it’s still low enough where I shouldn’t be using like ten balls and berries and then it runs away. It’s been to much lately between pokemon rates changing to where it’s not really fun anymore with all the disappearing pokemon and me having to waste so many balls on such low level pokemon. I’m sure I’m not the only one going through this with the app right now, I feel like there’s lots of bugs and there needs to be some changes I think. I just wanna get to the park and play more and enjoy myself with the app like I used to.
Great updates, but something’s really bugging me
by Lindzboots on 2018/07/05 02:44
I LOVE what you’ve done to improve the game, with friends and raids and research and everything! One thing I’m bothered by, though, is the gym/coin system. I understand needing to put a cap on how much coin can be earned from having a Pokémon in a gym, but a 50 limit per day across the board seems stilted. For example, I had a Pokémon in a gym for a little while (a day or so), and when she came home she brought 50 coins. Awesome! But then, that same day, another Pokémon from a different gym came home - one who’d been at the gym for four days - and didn’t bring anything, because I’d already reached my daily 50-coin max. I just feel like the system could be improved - maybe keep the coin-every-ten-minutes but move the 50-coin cap to be per day each Pokémon is gone? So, if a Pokémon is only gone 20 minutes he brings home 2 coins, but if he’s gone for 2 days he brings home 100, regardless of what any other Pokémon brought home that day? Just a thought. But my four-days-missed Pokémon bringing home nothing was really a bummer, and I don’t feel incentivized to keep my Pokémon in gyms for very long, with the system working the way it does....
Great game
by AncientSin606 on 2018/09/10 06:47
As far as this game could had gone, it did pretty well for itself. Niantic had some issues at the beginning, but up to now it seems that most of those issues have been solved. And about the rural players.I feel you, I live in a small town too. But there’s still a way to play the game. All you have to do is participate in community days or other big events that get players playing. You can even get some of your friends to play, making your own squad to take down those tough raids. I play with 9 of my friends and it seems to be working pretty well. Anyway, great game, loving the events, etc. the only problem that I can think of is the spoofing issue. TweakBox, tutu app and other apps are coming out with the latest spoofing hacks and Niantic seems to be falling a step behind. I hate the idea of spoofing because players like me who have been playing the game since day one now have to compete with spoofers who can grab a bunch of Pokémon and legendaries overnight. I’d like this issue to finally be solved soon, but if it can’t oh well I guess. Aside from that this game is a game that I’ll have for a looooooooong time. Keep up the great work Niantic!😁👌
Best mobile game in history
by unknownTOOL on 2018/06/20 04:55
Pokémon Go is a fantastic mobile game that models the Pokémon franchise that is Pokémon. The Pokémon and art in the game are one-hundred percent the originals and nothing looks off from previous Pokémon games. The game is completely legit. When I think of a Pokémon Game this the one that’s first in mind. If you where ever a fan of Pokémon like I am then you must agree that Pokémon Go is pretty close to being perfect and still has room to improve. By being a mobile game the game the app has to update in time and there is huge changes with the game since the day it started back in 2016. I give the game 5 starts for all the hard work that has been put forth to improve the game. It honestly is the best MOBILE game there is. You can take your device anywhere and now there is meaning why during the gameplay. You can meat people and learn about Pokémon in a way that I couldn’t before with the original game boy games I have grew up on. It’s Fantastic. The developers listen and reason with everybody they will explain why they do something the way they do. Niantic is a great developer and glad they took on the world of Pokémon with there Pokémon Go. Keep it up Niantic
Loyal Pokémon go gamer
by King Odin 51 on 2017/10/18 17:56
I really love this game but the fact that I cannot do a raid battle for a legendary Pokémon on my own is increasingly Aggravating unfortunately there are not many players that can come out during the time of legendary raiding I think it should be possible for any one person to take on a legendary Pokémon their self if they have the proper Pokémon to do so but that’s not the only thing I would like to say PVP is the most sensual part of the legacy of Pokémon GO and for it to not be included in the game is extremely unacceptable catching Pokémon is fun but to battle them with your friends and against your friends is the point of the game to be the best that no one ever was we will never be able to become Great trainers if we are not given the opportunity to put our hard work and time into The most important part of the game battling against Friends all the same I love the game but I am going to be taking a hiatus from the game until such time it is fair for a single trainer to take on a legendary Pokémon alone and we are able to battle against our friends I don’t really want to have to do this but the game is losing its point to play that is all goodbye for now
Sound design and quality
by TotalMiner_7 on 2018/12/01 05:56
i love the game and the gameplay can’t really get any better than it already is, however there is one glaring issue with the game. it has a few sound design issues. the sound effects that come out of my iPhone XS are so low resolution, it sounds like a Nintendo DS Lite. Every time i click a menu button there is an awful sound that sounds fuzzy, distant, and grainy. the game would be top notch if they simply added that. the music doesn't have the same problem, so why do sound effects which are equally (if not more important) hinder the experience of the game? i do have an issue with the music. why is it still this generic Pokémon GO song? why not remix some old route themes from all the different generations of Pokémon with Pokémon GO instruments? imagine running around your neighborhood catching Pokémon with a remix of route 209 from Sinnoh? that’d be so great, and its been 2 years and i’ve heard people argue for this in the past. I just cant justify five stars when the sound design is so effortless, and its been like that since launch. if they revamped the quality of sound effects this game would be perfect, i dont even need the music. fix those grainy sound effects!!!
Great game Few cons tho
by datbookend on 2019/01/22 05:21
This is a great game. but the spawning of pokémon are lacking a bit. the insense are good but i have timed the pokémon and for a 30 min span it’s to far apart atleast out of 30 mins you should spawn 5 pokémon. another spawn problem is that there are so few pokémon to begin with. i say commons should be around a lot but nothing really around at all. another thing is as i quested to get a ditto i have realized that excellent is almost impossible. the ring size i have gotten to and still only get great is insane i have gotten where the ring is a fourth of the size of the ball and still only great. this should be fixed. i can not complete mission if i can get excellent. i have not seen many that have gotten this this pokémon with out the switchbeing involved in it. another thing is you should open the ring up to a bigger area for people to see more so they do not have to go into a home or hospital. this can make things fun for the fact the farther you are on the circle the farther the pokémon is away could me things fun and you could add a new medal for this. i hope the company sees this and will help out all of the trainers with this issue.
Do you WANT dedicated players gone?
by A Broken-Hearted Fool on 2018/09/10 15:40
The past month or so has been a giant crap-fest of screwing over the main consumers of the game. Like, sure, spend three months putting the legendary birds in raids with a shiny chance, let your players spend $20+ on raid passes under the impression that they'll never have a shot at one in at least the next year, and then at the end of all of it release all three for a month as a "bonus" to nullify their efforts and bank account emptying. Not only that; spend over a YEAR watching people rush from their homes to complete raids at ex-eligible gyms for a shot at getting an ex-raid pass, only to release mewtwo for everyone? I just took a 3 hour long trip to nashville yesterday to complete an ex-raid because they were really that rare. Now apparently in a few weeks they're going to start spawning everywhere. And don't even get me started on lucky pokemon. Everyone that's actually into the game traded all of their old pokemon off for a higher lucky chance immediately. And everyone that didn't, already received 10 luckies and missed their chance at guaranteed luckies permanently. It almost feels like a reward for those who broke the rules and made multiple accounts; because who else is going to trade someone a guaranteed lucky valuable pokemon in exchange for a 10 cp bulbasaur from 2016?
App kept crashing on my new iPhone xs max
by gmzdrgnmastr on 2018/10/15 17:36
Here’s my story...about a week ago I decided to buy the new series 4 watch and the new iPhone xs max. I was excited about using this app on my new watch since I’ve never owned an Apple Watch till recently. Anyway I launched the app and was prompted like normal to sign in to my google account, which I did. When the app reached 100% load time it simply crashed and shut down. I know this was a problem in the early stages of when the app had launched, so I did all the basic troubleshooting....restarted my phone, uninstalled the app and reinstalled, cleared browsing history, deleted account associated with google..all of that didn’t work so of course I was starting to get frustrated and was ready to write a review with a one star rating. But I kept my composure and thought outside the box, turns out that the cause for the crashes was with my watch. So what I did was uninstalled the app associated with my watch, relaunched the app from my phone, signed on, waited till the app launched completely and then installed the app on my watch. Anyhow I just wanted to share this experience in case anyone else out there ends up going through the same issue.
Overall above average game
by Holly Ha on 2018/05/14 04:43
Pokémon go is pretty good if you live in an area with a lot of poke stops but if you don’t then you’re screwed. I live in a rural area and even though there are some stops and gyms there aren’t enough to sustain my supply of poke balls. If I go out and play I will end up catching a lot of Pokémon and run out of balls very quickly because there aren’t enough stops. So what I end up doing is I travel to the city where there are a lot of stops and it’s pretty fun playing there because there are a lot of gyms and stops but it’s very annoying to have to drive to the city every time I want to play. Also I know a lot of people have already said this but there should be trading and PVP it would make the game a lot better and more enjoyable. I also think there should be an easier way to get poke coins because the only way you can is to put your Pokémon in gyms and you only get 1 coin for every 10 minutes and it Maxs out at 50 coins. I feel like you should get 1 coin every 5 stops you spin or something similar to that because there should be another way to get coins. But even though there are a lot of negatives to Pokémon go it is very fun if you are in a good area.
I love it
by lexi in love with kuttys on 2019/02/02 16:48

Individual quests??
by Npo1234 on 2017/10/24 20:56
The game could use some individual quests where specific targets and goals need to be reached in order to capture a particular type of Pokémon. While the camaraderie that the raids bring out is fantastic, it also brings out certain drawbacks where trainers don’t utilize their stardust (many have saved up but relatively untapped because there’s really no reason to) to properly power up their Pokémon to assist with defeating Raid bosses leaving the burden to the rest of the trainers. While in a larger settings with 10+ trainers it really doesn’t matter but the underlying issues are that these raids are simply hand outs. The raids are often too easily won without much of a challenge. Experiences are too easily achieved, rewards are overwhelmingly abundant. There isn’t much that needs to be done from a strategic point of view. Perhaps individual goals or making the Raid bosses more difficult to actually defeat or returning the old gym system with highest CP on top. Currently as it stands, rare candies are in no shortage for the most part for those who participate in many raids; for some-stardust may be the limiting agent but that can be solved by catching more over time. For others, they keep storing their stardust and don’t necessarily use them because there hasn’t been any compelling reasons to.
Personal goals system
by Greg_Cohen on 2018/01/11 16:05
So I love playing this game and have been with them since the beginning. Niantic has put in systems that have helped the game grow and stay in the top charts. I loved it when they added the 7 day streaks system. It gave me more XP and Stardust on a regular basis and I really needed it. I was thinking that they should add personal goals in Pokémon Go. For example, there could be daily and weekly challenges that could grant you Poké Coins, super incubators, and other bundles of items. In addition to personal goals, I believe that Niantic should scrap the EX Raids and make it so that you need to complete your own goals in order to attempt to catch Mewtwo. This way you won’t have to rely on luck as much and you don’t need to rely on other players. Another idea is that there should be a “Sell” option in he shop. Just like in the Pokémon games, you can sell items that either are worth a lot or don’t have any use for you. I have so 300+ total potions that’s I have to just discard to make more room for Poké balls. It would be awesome if I could sell the items I don’t want and receive Poké coins. It’s just a thought. I love this game so much and I hope the updates keep on rolling in!
Recently returned and want to play more, but..
by Siege2 on 2017/11/28 12:46
I was one of those players who played at launch for a month, and was driven away by how hollow the game was. There has been a lot of improvement since then. I’ve recently moved to Florida from the far north and am motivated to spend more time outside. Enter my Pokémon GO revival: The game itself is fun and engaging now that there has been a lot of content added. You can read that in any review. The criticisms I’d like to contribute outweigh the benefits I’ve been enjoying lately. Niantic has a bad reputation when it comes to app support and listening to customer feedback. The notable exception being during in game events that they need to continually host in order to sustain a player base. iPhone X users had been waiting for an update to support their device for quite some time, despite developers having more than adequate time to provide it. Niantic’s solution, nearly a full month after the iPhone X release, was to zoom everything in and make everything look and feel wonky. The edges are also cut off so they could stretch the UI vertically. Lazy and sloppy. There’s no excuse for this, and my rating will remain at 1 star until this is addressed. iPhone X users now have a smaller usable map on a larger display. The game was more playable before they “supported the iPhone X.” Get your stuff together, Niantic.
I’m getting fed up with this game!
by Cheryl 7777 on 2018/06/13 03:40
I have been playing this game for almost 2 years. I have one account leveled up to 40. I’m working on another account and have it leveled up to 38. I don’t know if it’s Niantic’s issue, Verizon’s issue, or Apples issue, but I’m having constant problems with my gps and my avatar wandering way off. I was at an ex raid this afternoon and couldn’t play at all. I was sitting practically right on top of the gym and my avatar was wondering a few miles off somewhere. This is happening several times a day. On numerous occasions I will actually get into the gym and use my raid pass and my lucky egg, only to have my avatar take off for parts unknown. So I’m out my raid pass, my lucky egg, and the 20,000 xp for the raid. These inventory items cost me money. Another big issue is when I try to sign into the game. At least 1 out of every 3 times I attempt to sign in, the loading screen gets stuck right under the “Y” in the word “your”. That’s where it stays stuck no matter how long I wait. I always have to sign out and completely sign back in. I have played this game for a long time, and when it was working it was fabulous and fun. At this point I’m fed up with wasting money and being frustrated. I’m about ready to look for a new game to waste my hard earned dollars on.
Best App I have, but...
by CyoteSlayer on 2018/01/25 03:03
Pokémon in general are awesome to me. Pokémon go makes it a reality of being able to interact with Pokémon, not fully. Pokémon go is a great way to help me start walking around when there is a new Pokémon nearby. (however I’m never successful. 😂) But however, as amazing as this game is, I still wish you were able to interact with the Pokémon on a new level. In the Nintendo Pokémon games, you have the ability to play games, feed it, pet it, and raise its happiness. However this isn’t the case for Pokémon go. Giving players the experience to get to know their Pokémon and grow closer to them makes the game a lot more enjoyable, and gives perks in the actual game. Such as raising its happiness level, (which makes certain Pokémon evolve), raises its accuracy when it has higher happiness levels, and makes the Pokémon a lot more friendly, and more obedient. If the creators of Pokémon go just added this feature, I would be playing Pokemon go NON STOP. Literally, I would probably not stop playing. 😂 I’m sorry for rambling about, I’m done preaching. Thanks for listening to my wishes and my sincere gratitude for the creators, of Pokémon Go.
Game is insanely fun, but could certainly improve
by A raging customer on 2018/12/03 04:12
Me and my friends play this 12:00pm to 7:30pm like every day on the weekends now, it’s just so fun to compete and conquer your own city/town. The only problem is how easy that is to do. Gym battling is heavily, HEAVILY favored towards the attacker. The attacker can dodge attacks, bring 6 Pokémon to the fight and try as many times as they like to defeat the gym, and they can bring their friends to help out. The defender can only put one Pokémon(per person, that is), which degrades in power stupidly fast (like, 100-0 overnight) and you can’t even effectively repair them because you can only give so many berries at a time. If you want to keep a Pokémon in a gym at maximum strength, you’d basically have to work/live in radius of it which is like 50 meters. In addition, you can only get 50 pokecoins maximum each day from your gyms, total. So it doesn’t matter how many you are defending, you will always only get 50 per day, and one 3 use incubator, for hatching Pokémon out of eggs, costs 100. I just wish they’d make Pokémon battling like it is in the Nintendo games, where its turn based. Or atleast they could dial back the CP degradation, like, tenfold
