Pokémon GO

Join Trainers across the globe who are discovering Pokémon as they explore the world around them. The newest update to Pokémon GO, the global gaming sensation that has been downloaded 650 million times and named “Best Mobile Game” by The Game Developers Choice Awards and “Best App of the Year” by TechCrunch, introduced the addition of over 80 beloved Pokémon among several other new features.

Venusaur, Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and many other Pokémon have been discovered!
Now’s your chance to discover and capture the Pokémon all around you—so get your shoes on, step outside, and explore the world. You’ll join one of three teams and battle for the prestige and ownership of Gyms with your Pokémon at your side.

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, 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.

Take on Gym battles and defend your Gym
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.

It’s time to get moving—your real-life adventures await!

Your Crazy Hero

Update is terrible  Your Crazy Hero  1 star

I was a late comer to Pokémon Go. I started March 30, 2017. I am now a level 30. In the last 3 months I have learned certain things about the game that were annoying but not terrible. Server time outs and lost god signal etc. those annoyed me. This update is intolerable and by the way the other glitches are still there. I thank Niantic for creating a game that got people off their butts, out of their basements and exercising. This game has actually aided in my weight loss goals because walking is a key part of it. Unfortunately this app will not be on my walks anymore. I am not some 18 year old pimple nosed kid. I am a 47 year old professional, who makes well over minimum wage so I hope Niantic reads this and pays attention. I actually spent money frivolously buying poke balls from your store as well as egg incubators. I have a total of 5 gyms in my town within walking distance (about a 10 mile radius). Because of my age and being a professional there are some of us who are closet Pokémon go players so going on gym battles with my friends is not something that happens. Since I don't want the police looking at me as the creepy old guy who hangs out at parks I play alone. I put hundreds of mile of walking in to get the Pokémon I have, tirelessly extend walks to find that other Chancey so I could have a Blissey too. I had to take on gyms by myself and could defeat them because I put the time and effort into it. I never held them long because there are not many people in town that are of the same team as me but I did it and I worked to be able to do it. When the new gym system rolled out I got in a gym at 10:00 pm and by 5:00 am the next morning I was kicked out. What is worse is I went to another gym held by a different team, defeated all the Pokémon in the gym and was still unable to capture it. Why? Probably because someone who's house backs up against the library has some kid who can feed berries to his Pokémon and other team members Pokémon to revive them with zero effort to do any of the work required to actually hold the gym. I have lost pokestops in town due to business' closing and buildings being torn down and rebuilt. I only have 5 gyms. Niantic because of this new structure in the game I will use the coins I bought, supplies I have and my final pokeball and purchase no more from the store until the game changes. I spent my first 5 levels catching Ratatta and Pidgey and that is all that is in the game again. I do not expect a Tyrogue or Onix on every corner but you have removed possibilities of finding them all together and fills the game full of ratatta pidgey and other garbage. In three months I have found and evolved all but 52 of these little creatures to my Pokedex. What I see now looks like it will never be completed. Very sad.


PTC is broken again, some BIG update, can't even play  BishopPro  1 star

All this hype about the new BIG update and apparently most of us won't get to see it for a while because yet again, reminiscent of a year ago at launch, the Pokemon Trainers Club is wonky. Meaning myself and apparently MANY others can't even log in to check out any of these new features and have lost our Pokestop and Catch steaks. Crazy thought.....TEST YOUR PROGRAM AND YOUR SERVERS BEFORE RELEASING. With every "update" and "improvement", it seems to be quite opposite and you lose players with each iteration of this game. And seriously? Level 35 requirement to participate in these new raid battles? There's not one Level 35 trainer in my entire city that didn't get there by using third party programs that Niantic has banned and prohibited. Which by the way, now those same trainers have a scarlet letter on them for everyone to see because of the new update as well because of their use of third party apps. Trainers wouldn't have to resort to third party apps if you FIXED YOUR TRACKING SYSTEM IN THE FIRST PLACE. If I didn't have a six year old that enjoyed going for walks and catching new Pokemon, I would have deleted this long ago, but maybe I will anyway and just let her play the non-buggy version of Pokemon Go that she can play inside of Roblox. Apparently, other people and programmers know how to do your product better than you do.


Thanks  Johnny150  5 star

I like the updates, keep them coming please, the raid's and new gym system (while they may be buggy) are a ton of fun and after the issues are worked out should be a blast. Thanks for addressing a lot of issues players had, with the same Pokémon in gyms as well as expansion of the bag. Keep up the good work. I'm sure you have your hands full with trading, gen 3 and Legendaries, but why not throw out weekly mini goal events like Nintendo? Having things like, "catch 1,000,000 Pokémon" or "feed 500,000 berries to gyms" just to keep people interested while you are developing. With little rewards like Lures and Incense, just an idea. I would also like a local leaderboard but dont know how possible that is.


Great Concept but...  tiredofniantic  1 star

This game is based on an interesting concept but has been squandered since day one. The updates are rarely useful and actually make the game less enjoyable in many instances. The most recent gym "update" is likely the most frustrating thus far. The awkward new system doesn't solve any of the issues inherent in the old system, but yet is more time intensive and yields less reward. Meanwhile the terrible battling mechanics remain in place. Absolutely terrible. Source: life long Pokémon fan who as played competitively at the highest level: Pokémon Video Game World Championships


Better to make google account  TJ84  4 star

Although fun to play, the game does have its bugs, and I definitely recommend getting a google account instead of a PTC account due to the fact the servers go down sporadically.


Why  Supergraham16  1 star

I used to love this game. I think there were a lot of people who kinda quit after a while, and I was one of them, until they released all the new Pokémon into the game, and I was back and better then ever. Since then, I've kinda let Pokémon slip again, and I've been trying to get back into it, but the new gyms are so bad I don't think I can.

Bucket life

Utilize Attacks more  Bucket life  4 star

I know the game is still very big and maintaining servers for it r a struggle let alone issuing updates. This is suggestion to one of the littler aspects of the game tho. Each Pokémon is only allowed to have to 2 attacks which is designed for a regular and special. I think that the number of regular attacks should change(i understand it would change gym battle formats). I think that there should b a way to get different attacks for one Pokémon and b able to switch them out or at least learn and unlearn attacks. Maybe create a shop purely for attacks or get different attacks from pokestops. Then have each attack b teachable to all the Pokémon apart of that type. So it would b like growlithe could learn ember but vaporeon couldn't. And then u could have the special attacks b rarer to find as well. It's jus a thought


Pokemon  nomékoP  5 star

Honestly, most of the people who give this bad reviews just don't like Pokemon. Update: The updates just aren't coming. At first, it was HUGE. I didn't have a phone at the time, so I begged for one. For the first two months, it was amazing, but there's no incentives or constant updates. It lost momentum. Update 2: When raids came out, I started playing again, even though my level couldn't reach them. Then they lowered it so I could. I also love the idea of badges. My character is MagikarpRider, and this has restored my faith in Pokémon GO.


Candy and Raids  Dogboy1224  4 star

The amount of candy needed to evolve a Pokémon for some is way to high. Maybe you could make the candy buyable for iTunes money or poke coins, or lower the amount needed on some Pokémon as they are not the most common in some areas. Raid battles I feel are at a level that is too high for some players because my friends and I have been playing since the beginning. None of us are a high enough level to do raid battles yet. If it's going to stay like that I feel like many people are not going to be able to experience raid battles for awhile. Maybe it should be lowered to level 10 or something around there.


Glitchy!  quintboy  1 star

The new update looks fun but is super glitchy on gym battles. I have one more attack to make to knock down a gym and I of course am getting a error when trying to battle the gym. What gives? Guess I'll go back to not playing again.

Amazing Game  Pinkhorselove  5 star

Love this game! I lost five pounds from playing this game. I love new gym system, slightly improved graphics and just tried out my first raid battle. It was awesome!


Pointless limit of 50 coins per day!😡  Ginnerwaller1  4 star

The cap of 50 coins per day needs to be moved up to 300 coins per day, and PERMANENTLY LEFT at 300 coins per day. At least i'm no longer dangerously close to uninstalling this game because finally we'll be able to change our Pokémon's movesets. Also, the new gym system is cool, except for the pointless 5 minute wait to get more than one Pokémon in a gym.

Your pokestops keep saying Try Again Later! And I hate this PLEASE FIX YOUR POKESTOPS!!!


New Update = Pokémon Crash  Ebillings  2 star

The new update may have a new pretty splash screen, but start up takes forever and the game seems to crash quite often now. 👎

Terrible  Tim Nicholson  1 star



Still has places to improve  mexsmurf  4 star

I wish you could sync your app with other fitness apps so you can have a fitness tracker app open and use that to sync your steps to your Pokémon go app. That way I can track my steps while running. All in all I love playing this game. Keeps me active. People complaining need to get their fat--- out and walk use it the way it is intended. However, I am having issues with my Apple Watch. It tracks my walking progress but does not transfer it to my egg. Very frustrating.

Farmed to Oblivion

Pokémon what!?  Farmed to Oblivion  1 star

Game rules change so many times it's getting mundane. All these secuiruty updates for speeding, while the spoofers run free. Now with the update the gyms hold even less Pokémon. they're all already filled up with the spoofers. Now all I can do is feed a stupid berry to the Pokémon.

Boy wonder6534884347754467

Nice to see niantic is working  Boy wonder6534884347754467  3 star

I hope Niantic keeps overhauling things. I like the new gym system.


New coin limit is just a cash grab  Smsurine  1 star

There are a lot of great things about the new gym overhaul. But dropping the coin per day limit from 100 to 50 pretty much negates all that. Why should I bother fighting in gyms when most of my Pokémon will return with zero coins? This is obviously an attempt by Niantic to get us to buy more in game currency. Sorry, but that's not happening.
