Pokémon GO

Pokémon GO application logo

Pokémon GO has now introduced social and trading features that allow Trainers to connect with each other by adding friends, sending Gifts, and participating in a new Friendship level system that unlocks bonuses. Trainers can now trade Pokémon with other Trainers nearby, earning a Candy Bonus for the Pokémon received.

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 800 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!

My son wants friends  happymommy101  4 star

This app is great. My whole family has it and loves it. We are able to Pokémon hunt as a family and it’s great. We have all been able to friend each other and gift and trade except for my son. HELP. His account does not have option for friends. His app is updated and he gets the newest Pokémon but he really wants to have his family as friends. How can he do this??


Good but impossible to find people who play or want to trade  itsIsaiah  4 star

The whole idea of adding friends and sending gifts is good but difficult. Nowadays you won’t know who has or is playing Pokémon go. The trading and sending gift is impossible because you have be near them and meeting up with a stranger friend who’s number you don’t have or stranger is not likely. Ex meet someone at McDonald’s and add them. If you don’t get the persons number you can’t meet Because you can’t chat on the game. Great game, but it’s missing some things


Logging in  UmbreonLover86  2 star

The game is very fun because I’ve played the game before but I just made a new account, a new email, everything and it still won’t log me in! I put ALL of the correct information and it still won’t do it! Maybe if you made it so that it was easier to log in and it would be better.

Need help ASAP!!  mata's girl  4 star

I finished the week and went to collect my Pokémon and then the entire screen turned blue. I closed out the app, restarted my phone and then resorted to deleting app and reinstalling it to no avail!! It’s still happening and I need you to fix it stat!! Please I need to play!!


Still entertained, somewhat  Kapreezy0928  3 star

Liking the located feature. I still play but I wasn't able to find or evolve all the Pokémon from the initial release. My charmander is still a charmander because I only have one and haven't seen any to attempt a catch. Situations like that a discouraging. Might I suggest a search feature. If I choose to invest time and effort going on a wild goose chase or road trip for Pokémon, then it's available. Also, I may be slow, but how do I earn the special item required for certain Pokémon to evolve? So many questions.... I'd probably give better ratings if I didn't feel so lost/confused half the time. Update: I guess I’m not supposed to play anymore....won’t load on my iPhone 8 even after deleting and downloading again

CJ Man 1001

I can’t get my field research reward  CJ Man 1001  4 star

This game is a really great game and it helps me with exercise and stuff, and I like everything in the game. I had a problem the other day though that is still happening today. So the other day I finished my Field research and I went to go catch the Raiku that showed up, but I ran out of Pokeballs. I got some from a nearby poke stop, but when I went to go catch it again it only showed a blue screen with clouds and a compass


Errors!  legolas154  1 star

FIX THE RAIKOU BERRY ERROR! It makes the game incredibly frustrating. People are missing out on gameplay because of your terrible QA/testing.


Need more gyms and pokestops  Yuya2049  5 star

Forget what I said before, your game is amazing. The only problems for me is that there aren’t a lot of pokestops in my area and not a lot of gyms. I missed out on doing legendary raids like Latios and Latias, Regice, and Registeel. I wish for more gyms and pokestops in my area. Thanks for your cooperation!


Walk with buddy issues  Fhfjfnfnfjf  4 star

Would be 5 stars but I have walked with my buddy for 68kms and I have only 59 candy. I should have over 70 candies (I’ve caught and transferred duplicates) the issue needs to be fixed.

iPhone 8 unable to play  Lorrennicole  1 star

ARE YOU EVER GOING TO FIX THIS?! Almost 3 months with the Pokémon go app downloaded onto my phone just taking up space. Has never loaded. Crashes on login screen.


Coin Cap  Shmoo10112  4 star

The game is fun ... but I wish there wasn’t a 50 coin cap “per day” I wish there was an incentive maybe something like an additional 5 coins received for every hour your Pokémon lasts on the gym(s) past the time it takes to reach the 50 coins. Because it’s really lame that 2 Pokémon could last on a gym 3 days and the you put another one on a gym a hour ago but they all get taken down today then you only get 50 coins? Where is the reward for lasting a long time on a gym? It’s a real bummer...


My Profile Got Erased  Gbomb2020  5 star

I used to play the game all the time and got to a pretty high level with lots of Pokémon but I got bored and deleted the app. I recently redownloaded it and tried to sign in to my Facebook account but an error message came up and asked if the account existed or if I correctly chose new or returning player which I know I pressed returning. As I was trying to fix I pressed new player and entered my Facebook account and it started a new game erasing all of my other progress. As you can imagine I was highly disappointed in this and am very distraught at the fact that all my work in this game had been erased. Please if there is anything you can do Niantic please help me out. I would love to be able to play this game again on my previous account. I really love the game and hate to see this happen. Thank you and keep up the great work.


Huge fan of game with problem ):  Nick&Michelle<3Pokemongo  5 star

I have my field research reward as a pokemon apearing. Sadly it is glitched out whenever I tap the reward. Looking for a fix there is no little trash can to get rid of it.


Mad  chavolisto21  2 star

I just finished beating Regirock in a raid when I accidentally ran away. It didn’t let me go back in to catch Regirock because there was not time left.. I mean are you serious!!!?? You made me waste my Lucky Egg and also lost my chance to catch the Pokémon when I had so much Balls left!! This needs to be fixed. I am extremely disappointed & mad. Hope it gets fixed thank you for your time.

Good But Not  Athlexa  3 star

When I first got the app I made an account for it and it loaded and loaded and loaded and never stop. I have played the game on my friends phone it it was great. Thanks for listening!


Field research glitch annoying  Jenji88111234  1 star

Please fix the field research glitch!! It opens to a blank screen with a little bit of clouds. And then I have to close the whole app and open again to use the app.


Best game about Pokémon  professer0823  5 star

This is a cool game for people who like Pokémon and for new people getting this game this is the best game made also once you download the app you will always want to play


Terrible  lazypanda1199  1 star

In raids when u try to catch the Pokémon they do a dodge almost every time and it is impossible to catch


What the #@%€& is going on#@€&*%  bfriel  1 star

It is so annoying that sometimes you have to sign out and in.plus. I tried logging in but but for some @#€&*% reason there was nothing in sight not even the path of where the map is I could go on forever and now Registeel will be gone by tomorrow and l haven’t caught a single legendary Pokémon. You better improve your game Pokémon company.......l am serious


Full of bug  Guihm  1 star

The new update is full of bugs, I can’t catch the pokemons from quests after giving them berries and left to catch them later


Battles with friends  ScottBoy6410  5 star

I really love this game.But I find one thing wrong you can’t battle with friends. But I would like for 1 hour 1 day of every year you can get 1 legendary Pokémon in your area and for events you can sometimes get legendary eggs that are 20k


Their helplines  127840264830  1 star

I really feel like the helplines for this game could be A LOT better. I feel this because I once had an account with a level 20+ trainer and multiple Pokémon over 1000cp but it wasn’t until now when I tried logging back in I realized that the helplines do not help one bit. They are just very repetitive in what they say and I am still not able to log back in.


Pokemon Go Review  Matucxz  5 star

Absolutely amazing game! No complaints 👍👍👍


It is awesome  joesuph  5 star

I think everyone should play this game it is fantastic same with ROBLOX play this game!!!!


Buddy’s  Pettmp  5 star

I wish for certain Pokémon you could have too buddy’s butnobviously in fairness you should only be able to collect candys from one. Like minun is my buddy but I’d love to have minun and pulse like certain buddy’s should be allowed a friend if the user chooses to do so but like only collect candy from one


This is fair stupid  Shtampboy  1 star

I used to play this game all the time. Until I got an update that came with no support for iPhone 5c. Now I can no longer play this game. Which is an awful shame because it was one of the best gaming experiences of 2017 and maybe even my whole life. I just hope that you'll make this game compatible for iPhone 5c again because I don't think I'll be able to put it down.

Latest upgrade worse than the last  MStijlen  1 star

So many glitches and delays!!!!WTF!!! Not happy.


Truly loved it, became worst nightmare.  Filmalter  1 star

Not everyone lives in Pokémon-populated cities. I was relying on GPS spoofing and I sincerely enjoyed the game. Not to snipe, just to be in an area where theres gyms and PokeStops. I played every day and frequently spent money on coins. With the banwave I lost my level 39 account. Overnight a game that I truly loved became the biggest disappointment ever. Niantic could have been a bit more intelligent about this. Instead of banning spoofing, just make that PokeStops don’t work (I know a lot of PokeStops are sponsored and they need analytics and real feet coming into their venues). Or that you can’t fight a gym, only place if it’s your team and there’s space. Or figure something out that’s fair to everyone - can’t be that difficult...


Terrible support  pokemongo_tothepolls  1 star

Inconsistent performance, and offer very limited support.


It doesn't work  Sardiazzle  1 star

The game doesn't even open I've downloaded it like 10 times its so stupid


More gyms  Neverdeless  2 star

When I was in England the game was fun but when I went back to my country there were only two poke stops which were far and no gyms at all. In short the game became useless when my poke balls finished on the bright side I did see rare Pokémons
