Mew me - Actually a really good game
See, I started on July 17, 2016 and I’m still playing it. The pvp battles that were added in are an easy way to gat rare items and cool pokemon. There are also five generations of Pokémon in game so there is a lot of variety with Pokémon. The updates during corona make it easier to play without going outside so that makes it a lot more enjoyable to play. And I’m not sure if this helps but the 3D models make good drawing references for me. I’m a long time Pokémon fan and have been playing since 2001. I really don’t understand the critical reviews. I think that this game is simple to understand and good for all ages. You can also get motivated to exercise with this app. The game has good graphics too.
My only complaint is that many people are hacking the game. I think that a game that is still receiving updates in 2020 should be harder to hack into. Also there may be daily gift boxes that give you pokeballs but some of us don’t have many Pokestops around their homes so we don’t have much accessibility to pokeballs.
Even so, it’s a good overall pokemon game and I would recommend it to many. Thank you for taking your time to read my review by the way. 4 stars for me! But please stop asking for Pokémon that haven’t been added in yet to be added in. Gen 6 along with greninja will be added Later. Thank you again.
Mookie0608 - Fun gam just needs patches
Love the game just wish they would freaking do something and fix the cheating. It’s been a problem. People using 3+ shields. Honestly I feel like if they could either make it so a weak connection forfeits the match and make the mobile raid pass global through the app. You should be able to raid with anyone in the game easily. Just being able to easily join a raid without another app would make me keep playing the game. I love pvp too just gets annoying. Not every time it’s cheating but there is a lot of people exploring the game as well. The connection thing seems to big a big issue. I play consoles and I know connection issues typically are from you manipulating the signal to gain an advantage. I have dealt with lag switches all that and this to me seems like all people do is cut their connection a certain way to get more than 2 Shields. Because it’s always freaking laggy when it happens to me and it only happened when I’m winning rarely when I’m losing. If I have a bad signal myself I know when it’s me because nothing will work right. I battle friends all the time without issues and some of us try to find out how people are doing it when the connections get messed with that’s when the problems start so they need to fix the connection thing. Could be a quick simple patch like what some console games did. If u disconnect from server or have a connection issue your out and disconnect from the game lobby.
Crazygirl123887 - Amazing
This app is an amazing app! It is an amazing way to kill time and a great app to get your exercise in! There are a couple things that I think could be better. I feel there should be a chat space! So you can talk to the people you are friends with to meet up and do raids or battle together. Instead of having to download an app which even then you need to at least know there phone number. I feel you should be able to get more than 50 coins a day. Or at least be able to get a bonus for every continuous day your Pokémon is at a gym. Saying that I know that the prices to buy stuff is set to match the amount of coins able to be received each day. So if needed I feel it would be ok to up the price on coins a little. For trading.... I feel you should be able to choose what your friend gets. Or at least be able to put something in there for them besides a sticker. This also adds onto the fact that we need a chat system between friends to be able to tell what each other needs and or is receiving. I know you have the notifications for what your friend has received but it would still be nice to be able to say “oh thanks for the poke balls dude” or something along the lines of that. Overall this game is amazing! And I get on it several times a day. But I am sure other people have been saying things along the lines of what I have said! I mean none of this is no rude way but I do feel that these things should either be changed or added into the game!
KittySrock190 - Good game but many fixes.
OK so first of all I would like to say is a great game plus there’s many problems with it. My first problem is that you have to pay for everything in the shop instead of earning points but I have played for about three months now and I haven’t a single coin and it is really annoying to have to pay money to be able to get more poke balls and revives. Another problem is that a lot of times when I go to a PokéStop and spin it, it won’t let me collect anything, and will tell me to please try again later even though I already tried but it didn’t give me anything. One of my last two problems is that I hate how you run out of poke balls so quickly because then the only way to get more is to buy with money, or go to a poke stop for only 3 poke balls, which gets really annoying at times. One of my last problems with this game is, I don’t like having battles that all you can do is tap the screen I wish it was like that you could actually choose your move I could use and you can dodge other moves like a real Pokémon battle and I think that would improve the game much better. Just being able to tap the screen taking in every single shot is really annoying. Also the blocks don’t really seem very Pokémon, since in actual Pokémon battles you don’t really have a big screen in front of you blocking so I think it would be better if you guys let us be able to dodge instead of blocking.
ThAtS nOt A wOrD - This game has come very far
I’ve been playing this game since week 1. There was a month of 2 when I had it deleted because I wasn’t playing it, but when gen 3 was added I came right back. I’ve spent a good hundred dollars on this game, and I really only have 1 complaint in the dinosaur of video game perfection. I just wish Mega Evolution was better. Anyway, the way they have adapted into making play from hone easier is really nice, so people don’t risk getting sick. If you look back at the beginning of the game, you can really tell it’s growth. Research, buddies, friends, trainer battles, Team Rocket, shinies, and even legendaries weren’t even in the game at launch, and now we (almost) have 5 ENTIRE GENERATIONS with a read of gen 6. Research has been a really fun time killer when I’m bored, and the fact that Pokémon constantly spawn make it even nicer and a continuous adventure. Looking back, I feel so dumb taking a break from the game, even if it was only for 2 months. Anyone could get a blast out of it, and it’s a great way to drop a couple of pounds even if you’re only going out once a day! A lot of people got it at the start and quit a few weeks/months. If your one of those people, definitely check this game out again! This game has come so far, and I can’t wait to see how much it grows in the future!
TheKrystalRose - Frequent Issues and P2P Pressures
I’ve been playing this for years, and there have been consistent issues with things like the probability of catching a Pokémon frequently not actually improving with the use of berries or excellent cure balls. In fact, it’s more frequent to catch a Pokémon when NOT having an excellent, which is not how it’s advertised. There has been a growing push to get folks to pay to play (P2P), and some of the events, including the most recent PoGo Fest, really haven’t been worth what they’re charging. For $15, I expected way better than a quest line and rewards comparable to the $3 community day events. More transparency on what you get for your money would be fantastic, especially with the quests that offer different rewards for different paths.
Overall, the game is fun to play, as long as you’re able to travel to spots where other people are playing and where there are gyms and pokestops. Allowing remote raids has given some opportunity for expanded gameplay, but remote raid passes frequently turn into another thing you need to P2P for. And, well, the ongoing refusal to remove the ban on being able to spin stops while moving (like we used to be able to do while riding the bus) is perpetually disappointing. I plan to continue playing, but it would be nice to see some of the long-standing issues fixed, and to stop feeling like every other weekend is a new money grab.
Tamila333 - Great Game BUT........
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!
The forgotten rural players!
Man_ly - Rural efficacy
Living so far out of town doesn’t help with the game compatibility, needing to be in those locations, and crushes my love for the play. I can understand the point is to be interactive virtually in the physical spectrum, but as one of countless people who don’t live in the big cities, or in the city at all, the need for a travel less game is more acceptable. As for the game in of itself, the coin prices for items is also high considering gym activity is limited to needing to get near one. That leads to people feeling less involved and tired of playing due to spending real cash on game coins, which could also be solved by changing regulations on the coins themselves. A max cap of fifty coins daily is too low considering the prices for items is almost double or triple. If the cap was per Pokémon, then maybe players could have a chance at surviving the need to ration coins. Leading to another infuriation, the need for incubators, since only one infinite is given to the players it would seem more likely there could be a max of three given at different levels reached. Not being able to hatch the eggs leads to breaking down to save coins for incubators or struggling to reach the walking parameters enough with whatever eggs they can hatch at that time. All in all, the game-play has been smooth but frustrating, considering the possible improvements it has a long way to go before it is truly a masterpiece.
Alaskan Kayaker - I love this game, can we make it even better?
This has been a great game since the beginning! Never before have we had a game that encouraged people to get out and meet people in the real world with the same love for Pokémon. The best part is Niantic really does care about their players and listens to the feedback given from their loyal players. The new changes have been great keeping older players such as myself actively playing yet I’ve felt like since the beginning there has been a key element that has been missing. In the original Game Boy games when you tried to catch a Pokémon you had to fight it with one of your own Pokémon and each Pokémon had up to 3 or 4 attacks that you could pick from. Less tapping the screen continuously and more strategizing your next move. I was reading the reviews and I agree that there needs to be a chat with your friend group so you can coordinate raids rather than using facebook chat groups. I honestly don’t struggle with poke balls but more with potions since I battle a lot I am always healing my Pokémon and always have a huge amount of Pokémon I can’t revive due to the low amounts of potions that are more frequently getting distributed as gifts from raids or friends. Also can we make dodging work in battles? It’s an underutilized addition that doesn’t appear to help with battling.
Ward draW - Gambling mechanics coded into every feature of app
This is a great game, with a thriving community and regular and frequent updates and content. If you can look past the bugs and glitches then this is a standard Pokémon game.
The issue is that they have algorithms in place in almost every aspect of the game, regardless of your play style. Although Pokémon Go is free to play, they put you at a deficit limiting your access to playing the game for any length of time without making in app purchases for items.
Pokémon in this game have IV’s that don’t change and require you to catch more in order to level them up. Pokéballs in this game run out very quickly and require item bag upgrade purchases for longer playtimes. The eggs in this game work as loot boxes that incentivize you to purchase incubators in order to get event themed Pokémon. the legendary Pokémon in this game require raid passes that you must purchase in order to have access to them. Player vs Player has algorithms rigged to match you with other players at an advantage to break up your win streaks to keep you from exploiting the reward system. Completely powering up a Pokémon uses an ‘XL candy’ currency system that requires you to play during specific events in order to completely upgrade a Pokémon.
Just understand what you are getting into and make a budget so you don’t spend more money on this game than you intend to.
“The house always wins”
Number 13 1/2 - Amazing but I have suggestions
I love this game but I have some ideas that could make it better 1. Pokechat a way where you can send messages to your Pokémon go friends 2. XXL candies so that way you can level up Pokémon more because I want to get five star raid Pokémon but it’s hard by yourself and it’s not like you are just going to walk up to a stranger and say hey do you play Pokémon go friend me so yeah 3.Poke currencies look if you don’t have a gym nearby or it’s not your color or if it you can see it but it’s in driving distance it is kind of hard to get poke coins so you should be able to sell your excess berries potions poke balls and other miscellaneous items and get poke coins but then there would be another problem overpowered I mean you could make the prices higher but then people who don’t have a lot of items will find it even harder for them to get poke coins so there should be like poke nickels poke dimes and poke quarters and the poke coins is like a dollar and based on the better the item the better the currency ex. razz berry poke nickel great ball poke dime ultra ball poke quarter xl rare candy 5 poke coins and you can add up the lower currencies into a poke coin like the us money system 20 poke nickels 1 poke coin 10 poke dimes 1 poke coin 4 poke quarters 1 poke coin anyways that is all great game just a few suggestions to make it better
Firestar5237 - Great but some issues. Pokémon should evolve naturally
I love this game I have been obsessed with the whole Pokémon series and games but I live more out in the country and there is only 2 poke stops in like a 5 mile radius and there are barely any Pokémon around here. I have seen 2 Pokémon in the last 3 or 4 days and you don’t get that many poke balls from poke stops a lot of times and if you go to a suburb or city you don’t get enough poke balls to catch certain Pokémon. Also it’s annoying how most raids require you to have a friend in the area that play Pokémon go because not many people have this game anymore which they should. My friends don’t play Pokémon go and the people I have as friends usually live in different states or even countries. I also feel like you have to catch way to many Landuras’ in the battle leagues. It’s annoying because he has wasted over 20 great balls and 5 ultra balls. I am annoyed how you have to catch the wild Pokémon for winning 4 or 2 battles but you can’t move on to a different battle set until you catch that Pokémon. One of my bigger problems is that i hate how friends/ people have to be near each other to help in a raid or even trade I think that is the dumbest problem. But other than those few problems the game is fantastic. I love it.
Aahliegh - Not gonna lie
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.
ValhallaViking - Account Issues
First off, I’m a huge Pokémon fan! Have been all my life. I got super far in my original account but then it wasn’t letting me buy stuff in the shop with my coins I had. So I figured I’d log out and go back in. Now it’s saying my password isn’t correct which I know it is. But then I requested an email to change it. They said it was sent but I never got it. I tried retrying and it said the link is active for 48 hours. Does that mean I’ll get the email within 48 hours or I have 48 hours? I tried using a made up email just to see what would happen and they said there’s no account on there with that email. Just wanted to be sure the email wasn’t a problem. So why is it not allowing me to change my password by sending me an email?? Also I made a second one just for the meantime but on this one it won’t allow me progress with egg hatching and/or buddy Pokémon getting candies. I turned all settings on for allowing my location and all that. My battery saving mode isn’t on either. Aside from that, I can’t add friends. It said that it won’t load and to try again later. All I’m saying is that on my original account, everything was okay. I was even playing earlier this morning. Is there anything that can be done? I can’t even really get the full experience because the events have to do with my buddy getting candies and also hatching eggs. What can be done?? I’m just upset because I put so much time and effort into this all for this to happen...
Stfdidgaf - Best game ever
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.
Mzhur77 - Fun game, needs to be polished
Love the game. With the newer updates there’s a lot more to do in a more organized way. Most of the objectives of the game work flawlessly. The inner economy of items and Pokémon’s creates a wonderful system that makes you want to come back and play more. But, there are a lot of issues to still work out. One of which is the coins and gyms system. Right now, you can only get 50 coins per day. And a pokemon earns a single coin per 10 minutes in a gym. You would reach the max limit for coins in about 8 hours. This creates an issue, in which, if you have 4 pokemon in different gyms that have been in there for all over a day. Well over the limit. Meaning you could make 200 coins total, if they get defeated on different days. However, if they are all defeated on a single day then you only receive 50 coins for all 4, missing out on the 150. Currently, there is no work around this issue. You can’t recall your pokemon early, and if one gets stuck in a gym you are sitting there praying for it to be beaten. Another issue is with the combat leagues. When I first started the game with my most powerful pokemon at about 1000cp to try out the feature, the opponents were vastly unbalanced. I had to fight a 3000cp mewtwo on my 4th or so fight. It just seems that some of the features weren’t given enough time as opposed to other features of the game, and that lackluster approach clearly shows.
Poopyface29 - AWESOME!
First off, it’s a GREAT game!! You have so much to do! You have tasks/challenges and you get rewards from them like, poké balls(to catch Pokémon and some are regulars poké balls and some are Great balls and others are Ultra balls), potions to heal your Pokémon after a battle and more cool stuff! My favorite is the Pokémon reward where a Pokémon will appear and it’s usually good that you can catch! You can also Battle your friends and Team Rocket which if you win the battle of Team Rocket you can get one of their Pokémon and it will be a shadow! (Only if you catch it) it also has purple fire/fog around the Pokémon from team Rocket. I love how there is so much to do! Create tags, have a buddy (Mine is Squirtle ofc) and when they walk with you they can collect candy and when you collect enough candy for one Pokémon you can evolve it and make it better! You can also customize your avatar. Every day you could send a gift to your friends (You get them from Poké stops) (don’t worry they can send them too!), and you could also trade your friends and battle them! One thing I dislike (It’s not bad it’s fine) is when the weather is wrong even tho they could be using predictions from weather apps (which aren’t always right) but otherwise it’s…. THE BEST GAME IN THE WORLD!!! (Get it!)
Randomness07 - Frustrating
I have played this since the game was launched. My first complaint is I do not have access to my original account that I had purchased things with money. My second complaint is that anybody that has any sort of physical disability is unable to fully enjoy this game because you must absolutely be able to throw a curve as well as have the patience to use however many poke balls it takes. I have given up on trying to do any of the quests that require me to throw a curve and I am taking a break from this app because I just spent 10 Poké balls on a garbage Pokémon that wasn’t even worth 300 CP. I don’t understand how a Pokémon that is so low level when I am almost a level 30 can escape when each throw was excellent or great using a great ball and a berry. There are enough apps that I can play and get very aggravated while playing so this one is going to be a pass. Most of my friends have stop playing for the same reason. It takes years to level up when you barely get any XP for catching Pokémon and you have to use a frustrating amount of resources to get these garbage pokemon. They take eons to level up. I stood at a PokéStop for five or 10 minutes trying to wait for it to upload information so that I could do a quest. It’s still wasn’t even a quarter of the way loaded and I don’t understand why there’s so many issues win this app has been out for as many years as it has.
♠Jen - Please make it work better with iPad!!!
I absolutely LOVE this game, but the performance on my iPad Air 2 is pretty crappy at times. Like all day today it’s been giving me GPS errors, and it’s also been telling me to ‘try again later’ when I’m doing poké stops even though I’m not driving and I’m close enough. I have to try them like 10 times before they finally work. There’s also a glitch where sometimes when I try to place a Pokémon in a gym it tells me ‘this gym has no room for additional Pokémon’, even though there’s only one or two in there. And last but definitely not least, I just got into a legendary Pokémon raid (which I was very excited for by the way, and used a remote raid pass but when I went to go into the gym it told me I was too far and kicked me out. That was my last remote raid pass. Why did I get kicked out when it was a remote pass? Now I have none left.
These issues are very very frustrating. I spend good hard earned money to buy things on this app, and when I use it on my iPad it does not function properly.
It does a lot of other stuff too that I can’t think of at the moment that does not happen on the same account on my iPhone. I think you guys need to do some fine-tuning so that it works better with iPads. I would definitely give it 5 stars if these issues were fixed. Thanks for your time!
2cd best game ever - One of my favorites, but glitchy and hard to get Pokècoins.
It’s one of my favorites, but it has glitches. It will sometimes say it can’t find any GPS and when there isn’t any GPS, you can’t check out gyms, feed them berries, battle them, add Pokèmon, or get items. You can’t get items from Pokèstops either. You can’t even catch or hatch Pokèmon. It doesn’t show you moving until it’s the No GPS is over. It also will often say “Try again later” when you try to spin a Pokèstop. I usually just spin it constantly until it works though. And also a gym glitch. When your battling in a gym, it might get off of the battle, it says something to, but I don’t remember what. And also a shop glitch. It will often say “something went wrong” when you try to purchase Pokècoins, which means that I can’t buy Pokècoins for Pokèballs when I run out of Pokèballs, and when that happens I don’t play it. Also something that I would like: It’s to hard to get Pokècoins without using money. So maybe you can sell items that are on the shop to get the amount of Pokècoins they are on the shop. That would make Pokècoins easier to get. Because they are to hard to get. You would have to get to a gym AND have it be a gym in your team AND have it ready to have a Pokèmon added to it.
D4wntorment - Needs fixes
I enjoy playing daily but the game still needs fixes. The raid system is pretty bad, its very difficult to coordinate with people via remote passes without some kind of in game communication system. Yes there are chats outside of the game you can do but its not fun having to flip back and forth to ensure people are communicating or else a raid pass is wasted. Even in person you still need to back out and rejoin a couple times just so everyone can get in. The battle system is just not fun either and i feel forced to play it due to the massive amount of rewards it offers. I try to enjoy it but it gets frustrating especially with the occasional lag that can lose you games. The gym defender system also needs work as its a difficult way to build up coins. Even if you enter one pokemon in a gym per day its unlikely you will always get your daily 50 coins because the maximum of 50 coins and the possibility of getting kicked out is much too high, or the possibility of never getting kicked out and receiving your coins several days latee, possibly on a day where you were already getting your coins that day anyways.
Edited this review years later and the exact same problems still exist. They've been raising prices of items and removed the free weekly pass. The store has been offering poorly valued boxes these days
Aaron (be careful) - Good game but bug filled *updated
Still filled with bugs and customer support is a flat out joke. Mostly automated even when it claims to be a person. They don’t try to fix the issue just send some text to you with some basic fix that fixes most issues. If you have a real issue then good luck with a fix.
I have been playing Pokémon since blue and red. I have been playing Pokémon go on and off since launch. The game is obviously fun cause it’s Pokémon in real life. Not a huge fan of the simplified Pokémon of Pokémon go but I am used to it by now. The app is buggy and the developers don’t list all the bugs the community knows they have. That is my biggest issue. And instead of fixing problems they just try and give you a raid pass or some item and say they are working on it. The biggest problem is their customer service. This is my opinion but if you have a concern you get to talk to a bot. There is no customer service department. Niatic makes way too much money not to offer some real customer support. If you are a Pokémon fan or a fan of collecting you will enjoy this game. But you will eventually be so frustrated by the bugs that you will quit. If it wasn’t Pokémon and if it wasn’t integrated with the main games I would have stopped a long time ago. I am only here because it’s Pokémon. Niatic is a smart business and makes a lot of money off of us. The least they could do is listen to the community better and offer true customer service.
St0lenFayth - Frustrating Customer Service
Currently customer service does not provide adequate support. During and shortly after go-fest, I was invited to multiple mobile raids but got flat kicked out after all my Pokémon fainted. I couldn’t get back in. If the timer hadn’t expired and I was able to get back in, it burned a second pass. This glitch cost me at least 6 mobile raid passes which I had purchased with money (not coins from raiding.) I bought more because I wanted to have fun with my friends and not let it ruin my time. Later when I contacted customer service I got reimbursed for 1 pass. One. That’s it.
They blamed it on a “visual glitch” saying the pass was still there, but it wasn’t. My inventory never got reset, the passes just disappeared. Even after closing and logging out. They know the system is buggy and people are getting gypped out of things they purchased but don’t seem to care. Everyone I play with experienced the same issues and only half of us have received any sort of refund.
Also: (yea I know it’s petty) character customization. There’s lacking color variants for even the basic items, you can’t choose between long or short hair. Every male/female looks the same but with a different skin tone. We’re 4 years into this game and you can have blue, yellow, green, white, purple or 3 different shades of brown hair ... but no RED. (Give me my stupid red hair!!!)
Quikflow - Buggy app
For the most part you better have good connectivity with your mobile device or you will experience the most frustrating lag at times when you are battling other trainers thru the new go battle league schematic. I have lost tons of battles due to not my skill level but the servers not being able to connect my Pokémon fighting the other trainers Pokémon. There are times where the Pokémon disappears or takes time for the servers to load the Pokémon on the map which delays the time frame of events like community days etc. if you carry an iPhone I don’t think this game will be any fun due to the lag and any other issues that come across over time. Even Samsung has trouble on occasion with the 5g connectivity in certain areas. The antennae’s on the iPhone are awful and are better used for taking pictures and just calls. But for games stuck with a Samsung note or the galaxy series to get a better experience. This game after four years in the making struggles to allow any fun for the user about 60% of the time. Playable only when poke stops are near by and if you are out and about. Absolutely unappealing due to the laggy servers and lousy deals from in app purchases. One star automatically until this issue is fixed which will never happen. There will always be crashes and laggy gameplay for more than half of the time playing. Also make sure you have the unlimited data plan so you can at least load the game.
OldGamers01 - Pokémon go is OK
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
Go Battle League Non sense - Go Battle League
The delays and glitches that happen in the battle league are completely unbearable. I play this game a lot and really focus on the PVP side of things. Catching Pokémon that are useful for this, investing TONSSSS of stardust, and useful items such as elite charged TMs. This method is truly the only way to maintain some type of competitive nature against other top battlers out there. No issues with this algorithm, my issue comes in where you do all of this investing and preparing for a battle mode just to get subpar performance. I typically am a high ranked player so of course I go against other high ranking performers. One simple lag, one wrong move against these opponents are all it takes to lose a match even with a lead or switch advantage. Today alone I’ve lagged in 4 battles out of 20 sets and I’m connected to my wifi which is getting full strength and when I disconnect I have 3/4 bars of service. It’s not a service issue it’s a server issue and it’s needs to be addressed. I speak for all PVP battlers when I say I just want more balance games have glitches and I think we all get that, but it happens way to frequently and in a ranked system that your limited in the amount of battles played a day and one lost could be the difference in 3/4 wins which are the prizes most shoot for. You have released notes that this season fixes were to be prioritized but I have yet to see them. Let’s get the consumer taken care of and prioritize this issue!
Vrfivyddrd - Needs a change
Hi so it whoever’s reading this please read it carefully . Number one , so you know about Pokémon candy? And you know about Pokémon trades ? Well it would be great if you could trade any amount of candy as you want. Number two , so you know about Pokémon raid battles? Well it is really hard to catch legendary and mythical Pokémon even my most strongest Pokémon that is to strong for the ultra league can’t even beat a legendary Pokémon . Number three , it would be great if you could add new mega evolved Pokémon like mega Glalie . And you can mega evolve other Pokémon in all like the Nintendo games. Number four, it would be great if you could add Pokémon from all the other generations and Alolan and Galarian Pokémon like Popplio, Rowlet , Litten , Scorbunny , Grookey and Sobble and Sylveon and Dedenne . Number five , so you know about ultra beasts right?? Well it would be great if you could add Pokémon like Nihilego , Poiple and Pheramosa and all the Island gaurdiands like Tapu KoKo , Tapu LeLe , Tapu BuLu and Tapu FiNi. Number six , it would be great if you could give a chance for everyone to catch three of the same Pokémon everyday Because I really wanna get Espeon then
Sylveon so more of every Pokémon . Number seven , the Pokémon Ditto is a hard one to catch so add more Dittos. Thank you 🙏🏾 for reading 📖 this and I would Appreciate if you’d use these changes
Fallen_Arcane - A great game for any Pokémon fan! So long that you live in a populated area and have friends...
I’ve been a huge fan of Pokémon for over a decade now and Pokémon GO was like a dream come true for me. It’s so much fun to just get outside into the wilderness and search for Pokémon! However, there’s a few issues, and not particularly the technical kind.
I live in a somewhat urban area and it’s near impossible to find Pokémon. Sure a weedle or pigey may appear from time to time but that’s it. Unless you have an insense, it’s hopeless. This issue defeats the whole purpose of “go out in the wild to find Pokémon” when the ACTUAL wild is barren of them. Getting items and resources also becomes a problem because guess what? There’s no poke-stops when you live in the middle of nowhere.
The next issue comes with raids. When you reach a certain level, you’re able to fight powerful Pokémon and occasionally legendaries! But the whole idea is that you need a group to do it. So if you don’t have at least 4 other people to take time out of their day to join you, you’re soft-locked into being without the ability to take on stronger Pokémon.
Maybe I’m just being too harsh, again I LOVE this game. I’m hoping that with maybe the Alola or Galar update, they’ll make more wilderness filled areas have more Pokémon.
Solrachet - Decent game, but unless you spend real money you miss out on most things
Even with max friend gifts daily, random free daily store gift you are veryyyyyy limited on what you can do playing this game for free. It is a fun game dont get me wrong but the battle system is very flawed and lazy, you could easily have every pokemon capable of 4 different moves AT ONCE like the Older but better pokemon games. Depending where you live you might not be able to see a poke center or gym or any buildings icons at ALL on your map while home so again certain people constantly have a advantage. Many glitches and modders on the game who can force you out of a battle and count 50 wins against you in 1 battle . Pokemon spawning system should be improved as well, and team rocket ballons are veryyyyy scarce . I hope they keep improving this game but really it just seems like most other phone games where its all about the money and very little actual quality and time put into making a good game, just a okay game that was super rushed and underdevoleped in EVERY aspect, not like any other pokemon game for evolving too? Whats up with getting rid of stones or having a inventory that is SOOoo limited you cant even hold 1 of every pokemon... suppppppper lazy. Please fix, i dony care if a game has to be 50 gigs or more, it should be quality, not rich kids auto advantage and free players play 10 times as long just to keep up.
NOtaterJUSTtat - Similar to real game
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.
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.
K1n6t0k35 - Fun game. Great progress. still work to do
I just recently got back into this game. I played for months upon its original release and while it was fun it got stale fast with no battling an lack of regions. Since then battles have been added the research feature with tasks is nice. All the regions an Pokémon with them. Raids are awesome. Overall great work to this developing team. The things I think that could make this better
something I think would make this game much better is. Since you can have a buddy Pokémon why not let us battle wild Pokémon. You could make it give one candy of said defeated wild Pokémon is given if u beat it. An keep the 3 candy for catching. Then make the buddy that defeats the Pokémon either gain stardust. Or have some kind of system where u gain a separate type of xp for a new move to teach. Like the actual games. After you win so many wild Pokémon battles it gives you the option to teach it a new basic attack. Being able to battle the wild Pokémon would make this game way better. An even make it easier harder to catch wild Pokémon like the actual game. Plus it actually lets you use your buddy rather than having it aimlessly follow u around an every now an again give u an item. If that could be added this game is 5 stars easy.
Kristensus - Won’t finish loading at startup. Please fix ASAP.
Now for a quick review beyond this glitch (this part would be 4 1/2 stars). I’m a perpetual weight fluctuater, and since my friend practically forced me to “try” playing one night, I got hooked and it pushed me to lose 30 pounds. It also helped me lose a significant amount of weight two other times, while walking for hours with friends, motivated me to get out when I didn’t want to, and is just a great game.
And for the negative reviews about not getting enough free coins, etc…that’s how they make their money. And this app has helped a lot of people in the way it has helped me, so I don’t blame them for wanting, and deserving to make a ton of money off of it.
Tabarius Quan - Great, but still missing some stuff
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.
Jose Drix - Perfect pokemons, coins and trading chat
I love this game like way so much to be honest I’ve been addicted, the battles , the raids, the evolves everything feels like being a real Pokémon trainer but ives seen this weak details which I think would make the game better for thousand : 1. The trading distance shouldn’t have a limit and they should give a chat option for when you are trading Pokémon with a friends so you can talk and decide which Pokémon would you like to trade. 2. The poke balls they give you on the shop and items is not too much for the price , even for regular basic reds poke balls they charge you too much , it would help the trainers better options on deal prices for stuff on the shop . 3. The rates and possibilities for hatching or catching a perfect IV Pokémon is way way so low that I’ve been playing for like 2 years and still have not a perfect one and less a shiny perfect thats kinda harder looks almost imposible to the level my friends say they feel they will never have a perfect Iv one . 4. It would be more interesting if there would be new types of gyms for battle with Legendary and mythic that we can put on gyms will slay more than never , also a battle online option for legendaries with friends .
Devtheguy - I LOVE IT BUT,
Ok I have been playing Pokémon go since it came out. I have never left it, and I have probably spent 100$ on it this year. Pokémon go is so fun and addicting for Pokémon fans. Now on to the bad parts. A Raid glitch happens here’s how, so I was playing Pokémon go and my friend invited me to a Espurr raid yesterday, and we won because me and my friend have good Pokémon and I went to the catch screen. IT WAS A SHINY. I freaked out and I started screen recording. But then it said “network error (3)”. I didn’t care because that happens when u exit out of Pokémon go. So I went to my berry screen to get a golden Berry and it just started spamming network error 3. It didn’t let me touch or do anything. My entire phone was frozen! I tried to power it off and it didn’t work. So I went to apple to fix my phone. They fixed it but I lost the shiny Espurr. I was so mad. And your probably like “oh just go and get another raid” I live somewhere where there is no gyms, or raids. The only place where I live where there gyms and raids are at the city capital (where the apple store was) and I can’t go there because of covid. Oh and to mention I lost my Pokémon go account because I forgot my password (when apple fixed my phone they reset it completely deleting all my apps and photos.) but I made a new account and I’m level 20. I’m gonna try the grind to get my account back. (Sorry for spelling errors I rushed this.)
Live4applause - Unplayable. Zero stars.
My game just crashed 12 times in the last hour (I have time-stamped screen shots to prove it). I have an iPhone 6+. No other app I’ve ever used has been like this. This game has been consistently glitchy since it launched 3+ years ago, and there have been times when it was basically unplayable for me. But I’ve been a lifelong pokémon lover, so I didn’t give up back then. I am seriously considering it now. Literally the only thing tying me to this game is Nintendo’s franchise. Niantic is terrible, and if any other company were to put out a pokémon game, I would dump this game in a heartbeat. Even though I love Harry Potter just as much (if not more) than I love pokémon, I can’t actually bring myself to play WizardingWorld because I can barely tolerate ONE Niantic game. Two would be impossible. Niantic needs to completely overhaul its entire programming department, because as it is it seems like they’re incapable of producing a halfway decent game. They might make a bunch of money, but it’s all through gimmicks. If they actually had a game that most other developers would consider worthy of making available to the public, they’d be making billions more than they are now.
Still terrible. My game just crashed 3 times in 2 minutes, costing me a raid pass and a lost opportunity to get roughly 1500 stardust.
I’m really not sure what the recent server updates are supposed to have done. I see no changes. Still worst app ever.
DingedDragon - Fix the login bug already!!!
UPDATE June 2022: So I logged in a few days ago and had nearly 200,000 stardust. Logged in today and it’s down to less than 50,000!?!? WTH, Niantic?! Is our stardust nice expiring after a while or something? Is this some new, stupid feature you’ve added? UPDATE: So thanks to the ongoing login issues, I totally missed out on this month’s community day. I was finally able to login for about 10 minutes... two hours AFTER the event ended. It would be nice if you would do something for those of us who have been cheated out of our bonuses and events due to the problems caused by the recent update. Maybe have a special event or increase the number of items we get at pokestops. Granted that would have to be AFTER YOU FIX THE PROBLEMS. Otherwise it would be pointless. Your troubleshooting guide does nothing to fix the problem. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled seven times in the last week. Your last update totally screwed things up and now I’ve missed out on three days in a row of bonuses because when I do get logged in it kicks me out right when I spin a pokestop! You know it’s a problem, and now I see the obvious FAKE POSITIVE REVIEWS that you’re flooding the App Store with to try and bury the negative ones. I’m losing all respect for Niantic because of this. It’s been a week. FIX IT! Admit that there is a problem with the last update and stop trying to tell people to refer to the troubleshooting guide.
By eeveegamertv - Truly Amazing
This Game Is The Best Pokémon Game, I’ve Liked Pokémon For My a entire Life Every Since I Heard About It. I Was SO EXCITED When I Heard Sylveon Was Gonna Be A Thing, But Sadly It Never Came Into The Game 😢Also, The Thing About Eeveeloutions Is, Their Rare. A Little Bit TOO Rare. Eevee Is Way Too Hard To Get For Me And My Siblings 😢It’s Been Like 3 Months And Not 1 Eevee. Eevees Are Common, Right? But Why Aren’t They In Pokémon Go? It Just Dosen’t Make Sense! My Goal Is To Get Every Eeveeloution In The Game And Atleast Try To Get Sylveon, But I Can’t Now! Eevees Are So Darn Rare! I Always See Famous People With Like 50 Eevees Because They Put On Incenses, Lure Models, Spin Pokéstops Etc. But People Who Are Stuck Inside Because Of COVID, They’re Mum Or Dad Won’t Drive Them Around For Gyms And Stuff, Etc. (My Dad Only Does That When We Go Somewhere Which Is Almost Never) Also, Where I Live Only Has One Pokéstop, And Its Like A Yard Away! Not Even When I Use Incenses I Don’t Get An Eevee. Ok This Is A Complaint About Eevees But Really, They Are So Hard To Get 😞. Anyways, I’ve Loved This Game For A While, And I Don’t Think I Can Quit. I’m Waiting For The Eevee Community Day In August And I’m SO EXCITED!! I Might Get A Shiny If I’m Lucky. Anyways I Think Pokémon Is An Amazing Game And Yea. (Please Let This Go Through It Never Does)
DaleHorine - Innovative and Adaptive
Pokémon has been a staple of my childhood; so needless to say, I had very high hopes when Niantic brought Pokémon Go to us. At the start of its conception the game has been captivating and engaging in a whole new way with today’s technology. Though lacking aspects from the original game such as battling others or fighting a great evil like Team Rocket, Niantic has continuously evolved the app, actively listening to its fan base to make a Pokémon game that resembles the original more and more closely. Admittedly I was only slightly disappointed by how limited the game was first starting out, so I dropped it for a year. When I started playing it again with friends later, I was shocked and impressed by how far the game has come in its innovations and adaptivity, bringing 1 on 1 battles to the table in a variety of league settings, constantly sending out news letters to its players in order to stay up to date with Pokémon events happening from week to week, creating Raid Hours and Community Days, allowing invites to Raids, battling Team Rocket, and so much more! If you thought the game was lacking from the start, I strongly encourage you to pick it up again and see what it has become today. I look forward to Niantic’s journey for this game with great anticipation
Ash_paws - Best game i have, but..
Pokemon Go is the game i play the most, it's a good way to make friends and have a good time with family members.. But i have a few problems when playing. First off, i have this bug where sometimes when i click on a pokemon, my screen goes completely white and i cant do anything to fix it besides cross out the app. I haven't seen any other Reviews that have this problem yet, but it happens to me pretty often.. And it gets really frustrating when i need the pokemon for a collection challenge. Lastly, It annoys me when im battling someone and they use more than the added amount of shields.. I dont think its a bug, more like a cheater/hacker?.. But it annoys me. There are also a few things i would like to be added to the game. First, i think you should be able to chat with your friends to invite them to raids or battle them instead of having to have their phone number to talk to them. Second, i dont like that you have to be close to the person to trade pokemon, if you're trying to trade your friend from a long distance away, it won't let you and i think that should be added.. It would be nice. I wasn't meaning any of this in a selfish or rude way, None of this has to be added or fixed, it would just be nice. ♡
MLinton4 - Solid Fun, Mostly
I’ve been playing since release (on and off), and it’s a good way to pass the time if you’re out and about, exercising, or what have you. There are some basic quality of life features that the game could use, things such as being able to earn more than 50 coins from a Pokémon returning from holding a gym (no matter what, you can only get 50 per day, so if you have a Pokémon set at a gym and after 7 months it’s defeated and returned, you still only get 50. And that’s only if another hasn’t been returned to you that same day), as well as being unable to sell items back instead of just uselessly discarding them. It would make sense to be able to “sell” items similar to the way you can in actual Pokémon games for either in-game coins, Stardust or some type of currency.
I could go on, but long story short is that it’s a fun, interactive little game that you can have a great time with. Anyone who is a fan of the franchise and either lives in or regularly travels to more populated areas would surely enjoy it. Sure, some of the quests can be nearly impossible to complete after a set amount of time (depending on your geographical location) but it’s worth picking up just to try out for a week or so.
Holyman47201 - New update is great but it might as well have totally killed the go plus device
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.
Bruce WaYNe 9910202938 - update
i love the game but i give it a 2 bc it needs updates for ease of use. im a passenger in a car alot and pokestops should be able to open and spin if were going past one at 60 mph bc some of the places we go by no one is walking to so the onlyway to hit it is from a car but like i said if im a passenger there shouldnt be restrictions. also i dont need the dont pokemon and go while driving message to pop up every time my speed changes if i say im a passenger it should acknowledge and not ask again unless i close the app and open back up if u have to create a license agreement stating that if u check this box and are using pokémon go while driving after it asks if ur a passenger and u aren't a passenger u cant sue if u get in an accident then do that . also the special stones and leafs and all that for upgrades should be way easier to get I'm level 28 and have never seen some of them and i have the candies to upgrade idk if thats just me but ... lastly ditto idk what i have to do but its the longest achievement I've been trying to get i cant ever find him and like i said i'm a passenger a-lot i go all over the state it's getting to the point where i don't wanna play anymore bc i cant get to the next stage of special research its a lil ridiculous like i feel like they should pop up once since i have 2 special researches for it but yea hope thats all taken into account before i delete the app bc i like playing
GamingWiizard - Love it, but needs improvement
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!
FairReviewer0718 - Great game to bring family and friends together
This is an amazing game. It is great to play with family and friends to have large enough teams to tackle higher level raids and of course bragging rights for capturing the strongest Pokémon or a shiny. I know some people complain about it forcing you to get out of the house and be physically active. I can promise you that once Pokémon start appearing on your screen you will forget about how far you’ve walked. Events happen very regularly, the ability to add friends from other countries is a huge plus, after you reach a certain level you can nominate pokestops which makes it a little easier for us who don’t live in big cities. The only drawback/improvement I can say is that it would be great to have some type of messaging ability in app to communicate with other players. It’s difficult to help your friends with a raid when all you receive is a notification of their invite. Some of us are busy with real life at times and being able to communicate would help with planning and who to send the limited number of invites to. I apologize for the long review. Hope it helps and hope to see more people in game!
LIMsArt - Not a game for Agoraphobics
So when I first played this game I used to love in bumfuq nowhere land where the closest gym was 30 minutes away, gathering coins was a distant dream at that point which is why I tried to cheat and use programs to make it so my character could actually go places for once but then that account got banned. 😔 I can understand why but how tf else was I suppose to progress!!? Anyways, even after moving closer to stops and gyms, though I live like maybe 10 minutes away from a gym walking distance it doesn’t matter because of my anxiety and agoraphobia so either way I’m screwed here. XD Not to mention being in the middle of a virus pandemic has made it EVEN HARDER to even TRY and go to gyms or stops out of fear of killing ppl by spreading said virus... and NOW I got riots to worry about... idk if you know this Niantic but the world isn’t always a nice place especially now and playing this game would be loads more fun if we could actually move our characters manually without actually having to leave our house and our characters could even travel the world that way which would be cool. (Or even have 2 modes so ppl can still walk around if they wanted, idk just an idea) Please fix this game so that EVERYONE can enjoy this game because as it is right now some people have a disadvantage and it’s just not fair to those people :T
Solarbonbon - Addicting game, I just got a request.
I love the game so much. I got it a while back, but due to losing my account information I couldn’t retrieve anything from it. But it was okay, because I was still a sort of low level. I love that you can customize your character creation and walk around the map finding locations of places and poke. I just ask that there are more available options in customization. I kinda want more hairstyle options. I feel like having a unique character sets a more attractive mood in the Pokémon world. In the anime/cartoon, characters were distinguished by their hair shapes, eyes shapes, and what they wore...Oh and their colors! If the developer doesn’t have time for that, maybe finding a way for a creator mode where those who sign up for it can create hairstyles(or other mod creations) for other players across the world. You can even have the creator mode set up where they pay for that kind of vip section, it may boost your product, who knows. Whatever you do and however you find, I really just want a different hairstyle 😓. That’s it for now! I recommend this game to everyone! It is fun and addicting! Also helps your motivation for walking outside more and exploring the world.
BrianLind2727 - Horrible customer service!!!!!!
I’m writing this because of an experience I just had with this game. I’m a long time player, I have been playing since the game came out. Anyways I took part in go fest that just took place and besides a few glitches everything was fine until 8pm hit on Sunday. I was playing and I had a Durant spawn at 8pm and it was shiny!!! I couldn’t believe it I was so excited so I took a snap shot of it and then proceeded to catch it. I posted the Pokémon I just got on the Pokémon messager group I am in to show everyone how excited I was. Well that’s when everything went south. I went back to my game and it wasn’t shiny anymore... so I took screenshots of everything including the original shiny one I had and sent it to niantic to have them try and fix it. Well guess what the creators of the game said they can’t help me... I mean you would think that maybe they would wanna do something to make me happy because I have been playing this game for 4 years and have given them thousands of dollars. So I messaged them and told them my situation again and all they said was it’s a glitch and nothing they can do.. they didn’t even offer any sort of compensation for my troubles. Then Regina was the person who messaged me and was very rude about everything. Well I am very disappointed in the customer service they offer and I will absolutely think twice before spending my money and time in this game again if this is how they treat people!!!
Claydol123 - The game has really grown
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.
Needsabath513 - Good, but needs major improvements
I have been playing Pokémon Go on and off since it came out, and it’s undoubtedly improved since then, evolving into a mostly enjoyable experience, and Niantic has adapted to the restrictions of COVID-19 pretty well. However, there are some things that desperately need fixing. The first one is raids: when a raid boss is defeated, the timer keeps running out for several seconds until the boss shrinks down and you can capture it. The timer should stop immediately once the boss’s health reaches zero. The second is Go Battle League: connectivity issues really ruin a lot of battles. I don’t want to win a battle because my opponent can’t fight back, and I don’t want to lose a battle because I’m taking damage and am unable to deal any back. There have been several instances where I will attempt to use a charge move, and despite no shields being used, it won’t do any damage to my opponent. And vice versa, I will use a shield, but I will still take full damage from my opponent’s charge move. If there is a connectivity issue, it should affect both players equally (read: neither should be able to do anything until it improves). It really ruins the excitement of GBL to experience something like that when there’s nothing you can do, and you still lose rank points for it. Please Niantic, fix these issues.

Dèèz ṉuṯž - Absolutely amazing game but
This is my favourite game I have but the problem is it has started to lean towards gbl more then raids and catching Pokémon. Also there are a lack of pokestops in a few areas but other then that the game is fantastic, you can raid with your friends, trade with them and also it can help you
Explore the outside world wich is uncommon in games. For example there might be a strong Pokémon at a pokestop showing a path, yeah you will catch or try to catch the Pokémon but you can also go down the track for yourself and explore. But another thing is that the game could do better with awareness for example removing dangerous places like a pokestop at the bottem of a steep mountain that can only be gotten to by climbing down the mountain but honestly it’s up to the “trainers” to be self aware. This game is amazing I definitely recommend it
Dinga1961 - Trapped
Hello! How has your day been, whoever is reading this? So, Pocket Monsters G.O was built for walking around the Earth, right? Well, that’s what makes Quarantines the worst possible situation for any player. You can still hatch Eggs, but A slow rocking in your chair won’t do much. Another pet peve I have is that if you are of the age where your parents don’t let you leave the house on your own (Thanks, Mum and Dad, for caring about my safety!), then getting Pokecoins and spinning stops is impossible. A little nugget of information: You can only earn Pokecoins by selecting A Pocket Monster to defend A gym. Something that is not possible when you can’t get close (Unless A certain miracle happens where A satellite misreads your device’s location and gets your Avatar right next to A Gym.). The problem with this game is that it was made for A specific group of people, and doesn’t really allow for AtHome Gameplay. But, hey, that’s not A reason to not install this game! If you find A Friend online, then you can get Gifts from them, each day! Just don’t play the game if you are restricted to your home, wherever that may be. Have A good day, reader! Oh, and one more thing: I hope there’ll be a sell items option in the future that gives A varying amount of Pokecoins depending on the item sold, and how many items sold. Seeing as A lot of items are just 100 Pokecoins, maybe make it 0.1 Pokecoins per Pokeball, or something. Toodles!
RedSugarAngel - Features Inaccessible, Unsafe or Only Available to Level 45+
The major issue with the game are the parts inaccessible to those below level 45 and who are playing without a bunch of friends they can meet up with for the 3 plus Raids to get top battle ‘Mon and gym take downs/then holding it long enough to earn coin. And living post in this post Covid world 1. Accessibility without close contact with others should be essential. No one past high school is running about in a group and for many of us it’s just not safe. The remote raid fix for this is a farce - you’re limited to line of site gyms, can’t send an invite to others to join you in the raid or gym take down and your mon do way less damage. Ive never been joined by others through the games mechanism. Plus I’m level 30 and still don’t have a wide enough variety of mon to be very successful PvP. Now they’ve taken away the 1500CP and less PvP to replace it with only mon caught this season Niantic is clearly trying to punish those who don’t have high CP Pokémon and it’s pointless doing much more than swinging discs and catching everything you see if you’re under level 40. Which REALLY slows down level gaining kinda locking you in catch 22. Not beginner or middle friendly at all. Some lower level leagues need introducing and Niantic needs to concede to the need for increased remote features for Raids and Gyms.m
Samoozle - Introduce trading? But can’t trade items?
As much as I love this game and want to love it more I can’t seem to. This is the only app I would spend money on and yet with every update you fall short every time. Why can’t you trade or sell items that you have excess of? Why can you only trade Pokémon? If you are introducing Pokecentres, that’s good and all but what’s the point of me having 3 dragon scales after I’ve evolved my Seadra? There isn’t much. What’s the point of my girlfriend having 4 Kings Rock after she’s evolved Slowbro and Poliwhirl? Not a lot really. Waste of a reward system for 7 day streaks and just seems like the system isn’t as well thought out as it could be.
I get that it’s hard to make a game as good as this but you guys fall short every time. It’s just lucky that the Pokémon Community is as big and loving as it is.
And what sort of company doesn’t have an email where you can’t have some sort of free form text where you can actually explain a personal issue with the game. Your consumers have a right to voice there opinion to listen and it’s your job to listen. You say you are very supportive of the community but it feels like you guys don’t care about us and limit what we can tell you so you can hear what you want to hear.
Sexylesbain - Some areas been having trouble with Newtown park
There’s two zones at Newtown Rose Garden park where myself and my partner could not get the prizes for Roses Artwork Seat. The other one is the West Toowoomba Croquet Club. It keeps telling us both to walk closer to interact with this pokestop. We’ve been extremely close and under the sign for the West Toowoomba Croquet Club. The Roses Artwork Seat we have sat on it to try to get it to work and that one tells us to walk closer to interact with this pokestop. It could of been the graffiti on the Roses Artwork Seat. The West Toowoomba Croquet Club sign could be because there was no shrubs on the ground underneath the mailbox. Otherwise we haven’t had any problems with it so far. Since we joined the Pokémon GO. We are enjoying it so far. But if you could check this out please and have it fix for us and everyone else who plays it. Please and thank you. We will let you know in future if there are anymore that aren’t working.
Thank you for your time and helping us to try and get this fix and other players who play the game.
MAYBE DO UPDATES ON THE POKESTOP TOO MAKE SURE ALL POKESTOPS ARE ALL WORKING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Funkay123 - Love the game, not the bugs.
I absolutely love this game and really appreciate the developers putting in all the hard work to make the game more accommodating during self-isolation. Unfortunately there seems to be a couple of bugs that are quite annoying. The first is my friends list automatically scrolls back up after sending someone a gift. You have to keep manually scrolling down after closing each friend to get to the next one. The other bug I’m running into is when I open a mystery box alongside incense, rather than tell me I can’t run both at the same time it just opens another incense and stacks the time on top of what was already remaining from the initial incense. Finally, I’m not keen on the proposed lower rate of coins earned per minute at the gym. You end up having to take over 3 gyms to earn coins at the same rate currently. Not exactly conducive to self isolating if you have to go to additional gyms. I hope this just isn’t a potential money grab by the developers to have people buy more coins than rather earn them in these difficult times.
Twisty82pop - Disappointing, all about the $$$ and discrimination
As a disabled person who also lives in a very remote area the recent changes to your game are so incredibly disappointing. I’ve played from day one, however I had to stop playing a few years ago as living so remotely made it impossible to join raids or even send gifts as there’s no pokestops or gyms. I am not an able bodied person and even if I was it’s a 12km walk to the closet gym. Since the remote raids have been available I’ve be able to join and build friendships within the game, now you’ve taken them out of the $1 box and bumped the price of the 3 passes in the shop. You’ve also disabled the incense to walking only, which I am unable to do, you’ve taken away my ability to feel included in community days. This is NOT an inclusive environment anymore, your biases for able bodied people and people living in the city is absolutely disgusting. You’ve taken away the joy of feeling included, the joy of every single disabled player, the joy from every single remote living player. Start listening to your users Niantic, do better, stop the discrimination
Dhgfdftiuj - It’s really good but
It says like I’ve made my character and everything and then it says are you done with finishing your character so I like yes but then it just says location not found so open up settings so I open up the settings and I turn location on so then I go back into Pokémon GO and then just says that the location can’t be found and I’m like yes I put everything on your Settings and allowed it but its not working so what should I do because I don’t know how to get into the game it’s just really hard because I keep on allowing it for my location but it was like you know haven’t found location and everything but I deleted the app well the first time I got on it arm it said do you want the location to be found and I was like no but then I realise that I had to so I deleted the app and got back in but then it like I made my account and everything is on Google and everything but I went back in and it said that the location was around and open it up and told you all of that but it just doesn’t work and says the location hasn’t been found so please help me with the app 🙁🙁😞😞😞
Mr.HATE THIS GAME - Solid 5 stars from me! However...
Overall, coming from a Pokémon geek like me, I love how diverse the game is and how it encourages players young and old to get out and active! The new buddy system is also a good addition to the game just to add a tidbit of salt into the game. The however part of this are the raids. The good news is that with more recent legendaries being added into the game, it lets us all the chance to catch some Pokémon that may never come back. The thing is that all players should be able to enter raids even while they are walking (or using transport to get into the raid) a fair distance. As a hardcore PoGo player, I want a feature to be added where players can do a raid even though they are walking/being the passenger away from the raid. That way, we all have the opportunity to catch the raid Pokémon. Other than that, good job on making PoGo an entertaining and very fun game to play!
Chars6 - MONEY HUNGRY NIANTIC!! 🤬
I only wish I could give them ZERO stars. The way Niantic treat their players/customers is beyond APPALLING!! They don’t mind taking our money but when it comes to the HEALTH & SAFETY of their players they couldn’t care less. We are in a Global Pandemic with a deadly virus and they want us gathered in groups, with people we don’t know, catching goodness knows what illness from them to play a game!! In 2020 they altered the game due to the Pandemic and for our health and safety but they have now removed that feature making the game impossible now to play for some people. We are still in this Global Pandemic with the Delta strain now, which is more deadly than the original strain. The USA are getting 100K++ new cases every day, countries are going in & out of Lockdown, and NOW is when Niantic decide to remove the features that allowed us to play at a SAFE distance from people we don’t know. I can tell you right now I won’t be spending any more of my money in this game!! I think we should all hit Niantic where it hurts. No more $$ from us until they make Pokémon Go SAFE TO PLAY AGAIN!!
<**Ray**>1 - You need to start fixing all your stupid faults
We were in COVID lockdown
Nothing open except supermarkets
1 person could leave the house for a short time to go to food shop
We get moving again and your errors make me want to quit today I tried to raid and everything jammed the nothing to poke stops or Pokémon. When the stops cam back all I got was error every time I tried
I was just at the best spot of my run
Yesterday it happened slight different at the best part of my run
I really am ready to quit.
Fix some of your problens
Tonight I opened my RedRedRose
And she is not there. Replaced by a green haired male. With the wrong buddy.
I don’t know if you read these
BUT I want my RedRedRose back
8 December 2020
I sign in this morning and no RedRedRose,
Just this green haired stranger. I want my RedRedRose back PLEASE
8 dec 2020
I have been trying to get my account to the level 41 for quite awhile. You have so many gliches and errors it is almost impossible to play the game. At my age I don’t need the frustration.
Why don’t you try to get the game working properly before you add anything else new.. you certainly can’t handle what you are supposed to be running at the moment
Sorry to be so miserable but I like the game and I hate to see it fail so badly
Nickiss - Catch em all? As if..
Far too difficult to catch higher ranking Pokémon unless you know at least a dozen other players. Raids above level 3 are un-soloable so if you mostly play on your own or even with one other trainer then forget about ever getting the better Pokémon. Eggs hatched give you basic Pokémon. Why? Give a chance to hatch rare ones please! 10km eggs are as rare as Mew in this game. Takes forever to rank up Pokémon to any useful level. Played since the start. The game needs easier access to stardust and sinnoh stones. Once you collect over 250 candy for a Pokémon you should be able to trade excess candy above that for stardust. I’d suggest one candy for 1000 stardust. This would give you more incentive to keep catching the useless Pokémon that are the majority. Sinnoh stones are far too hard to acquire for all the Pokémon that need it to evolve. It’s ridiculous. Once you catch a certain amount of one Pokémon they should then be very, very easy to catch. Like 1 ball catch every time. Game is currently 9 parts frustration to 1 part rewarding in my opinion.
Femmichjen - Awesome but I have problems
I’m an og player from as you would know 2016 and I love the game but I have my fair share of problems for example: charmander is a ton rarer to find than all the other starter Pokémon along with Treeko and snivy, as in I have never seen an snivy or charmander in the wild and have only received a Charmeleon in a rocket raid and charmander from an egg an my starter. I’m also in a raid predicament and don’t know why but in raid battles it shows me knocking the boss out single handedly and then knocks out my whole battle party and a few random Pokémon. And I’d like to add to this with another problem I nearly never receive potions of any variety from Pokéstops and gifts and this is a huge problem putting the fact that doing raids knock out u bunch of my Pokémon for no reason. But is still love the game. Also please add a feature to trade/sell items and a candy trading system
1968KEZZA - NOT INPRESSED
I have been playing Pokémon since it first came out but now I have some problems with it, regarding the regions I have finish the , KANTO REGION but the rest when you think your getting the Pokémon they stop coming and you catch them same Pokémon every here in AUSTRALIA these are the Pokémon that are always , always around, skwovet, golbat, rattata, Lickitung, grambull, Pidgey, Taillow, swallow, starkly, pidove, service, skiploom, nothing changes I have friends all over the world and they have better Pokémon then we do here in Australia. So when will that change, then I have put in request for a poke stop around me because we have elderly man and women who also love the game and they are unable to leave there house because they can’t walk or there to scared to leave there house because of COVID so please help them too, as I said we may love the game but come on the makers of this game need to start doing the right thing for all plays of all ages
Karl Carlson - Not so friendly for spontaneous use when on the GO
I haven’t used Pokémon GO since 2016. Any time I was actually on the go away from home WiFi it was forcing me to update and I wasn’t prepared to dedicate mobile data for that not to mention the time required to update the app. App developers need to keep in mind that user experience matters if they want end users to continue using the app and potentially putting money into it either directly or indirectly. Since then the app has added heaps of new content which is fine but BEFORE that happened I dropped out of using the app because the constant need to update meant I always had to plan to use it ahead of time rather than use it spontaneously and I find that antithetical to how it should be. If I have to be constantly updating the app at home just in case I might wanna use it while on the go then you’ve lost me.
Glbear18 - Don’t bother if you live remote or disabled. Niantic doesn’t care about it’s users.
Seriously don’t get into this app. They will only let you down. Fan base likes the inclusivity and ease of remote raids? Make them more expensive and stop selling one a week for 1 coin. Fans like the incense so they’re able to catch Pokémon when they’re unable to walk/move/go out at that time? Makes incense only effective when you’re walking. Seriously it makes no sense. I use to use incense all the time during work breaks or when it’s raining and now I have no use for them because if I’m on a walk, there are Pokémon around and there’s no need. If you live remotely don’t even bother. Incense use to help a little with that but now you just sit staring at your screen for 5-10 min for ONE Pokémon. When will Niantic learn that making your customers happy will actually make you more money. When will niantic learn that if they want their fan base to act differently or do something new to INCENTIVIZE instead of punish.
Ahmsbfdkbd - Bugs and Accesibility flaws
The game is definitely fun but it’s pretty riddled with bugs, to the point where I usually have to restart the game twice or more a day to fix bugs. On top of that the online servers are pretty bad which is not good for a game that mostly revolves around them, although this problem is mainly when using the battle leagues. The other major problem with this game is that raids and gym battles usually require large groups to actually do, groups of at least 5 or so people and it’s pretty difficult to get a group of that size when your starting the game or if you don’t know anyone who plays it which kind of restricts beginners progressing in game. Bottom line is that the game has a really good idea and it’s still fun regardless but there are a lot of issues that need to be resolved.
Rayovsun - A bit of feedback
In the next update, you should include data when capturing Pokémon or when you site the Pokémon what their strengths and weaknesses are in the Pokédex ie if there weakest against ice and water attacks, and have each Pokémon have a different weakness and strength so that the trainers have it handy when they want to find the info.
You should also include an area of data in which a trainer can go to in the Pokédex where they can study up on which Pokémon is best to fight against which ever Pokémon is around “either trainer battles, grunt battles, or raid battles) rather then waiting for the hint guy to pop up at the end of the fight after loosing the battle.
It would make the game more enjoyable, help those who don’t actually know what there doing play, and not have to leave the game to look up the information online either.
Paysee07 - Need to stop the go battle league season cycle
I play this game everyday and I love to do go battle league but the downside is that every to weeks it will cycle through great league, ultra league and master league they need to bring back when you could choose any of the 3 leagues at anytime because when it’s cycled to master league me and most people probably don’t have have good enough Pokémon for that league and it gets boring when you keep losing and losing but if they let you chose to do whatever league you want then it will be easier for people to get more rewards eg: you need more fast and charged tms but you have to wait 2 more weeks to be able to have a chance to get 2 or 3 wins but if you are able to do any league you want at anytime you can get rewards in no time.
Celestial_Fox - Frequently Connection problem on the Battle System
I love Pokémon Go and the new battle system is everything that we players expected since the beginning. It made the game finally reach a level that us, Pokémon fans, were wanting so much, making the game more than just a collection system but also a competitive game, so I’m thankful to Niantic for that.
On the other hand the new battle system still has a lot of connection problems, and it’s not duel to the internet, which results in lost of the battle even that sometimes Is not able to join it, so it’s been hard to appreciate the battle system so far, hopefully once you guys correct those problems will make the game more enjoyable.
Please fix it as soon as you guys can, cause I can’t wait to enjoy the battles :) .
Easyp88 - Needs more for long term players
Good and bad. People look forward to such good rewards and you give us “mewtwo” after all the hard work we went through to do ex raid battles. Back in the day when it was so hard to find a chansey, they’re just spawning everywhere. There is no challenge because we know what to expect. Make it more interesting and unpredictable because I know it’s not just me who is sick of all your rewards. 7 day pokestop rewards too. How about rare candy and not “upgrades”.
Kudos on community days but what, aren’t you ever going to now have one for a swanky because they’re already out as a shiny?? Or growlithe? Or magicarp? I’m not even going to bother getting deoxys because yep, sure, there WILL be a way somehow. For people who started in 2016, what good are events like the frequent spawn of the manor region, other than few extra candies to add to my collection. Overall it’s fun, but people want more.
Benj-08 - Im back again!
I started playing when it first came out. And I loved it. As an avid fan of Pokemon I was so excited about this game.. I was one of those people who used to drive around and stop by places just to catch pokemon. I experienced running within a crowd of people trying to catch some rare pokemons out in the street. But then I suddenly lost interest probably after 6 months as it became repetitive. The game became boring. I think people lost interest because the updates and the release of new gen pokemons took forever to happen. But then when I found out that they released gen 2 pokemons my interest came back and up until now i am still playing. All my friends lost interest but im back! I hope that the makers of the game will be able to release gen 3 and 4 soon..
JoE_Keeper - Great game but...
I love this game. I play it with my friends and we walk around battling and collecting items, it’s awesome. BUT recently what’s bugged me are the hackers. People hack so that they don’t have to walk anywhere which means that they don’t have to work as hard but they still progress through the game faster than all the legitimate players. There was one case where my friend and I ran to a gym and ran back to the car so his mum could hurry to work and as soon as we got back. Our Pokémon were kicked out of the gym. Then we looked over to where we ran from and there was nobody there. It was a waste of potions. That’s a good example of hackers being frustrating. Please find a way to stop hackers. Other then them, the game’s awesome (apart from a few minor bugs.)
Flarewolf980 - This is epic but...
Hi, this is one of and even yet the best game I’ve played I love and everything about it. The feeling of waking up every morning and going out to play this, and the thought of you still getting exercise it’s amazing.
The reason I put a but in the title is cause I have a idea that might make the game better. Ima not be a Karen and complain about the game, I just thought maybe if they added a permanent change on the music. What I mean is still keep the old music but add like a radio and add more song, that are not copy right what I mean is u could be able to play the night music during the day. Or the battle music during normal time. And it could cost like 80 poke coins. That would be a cool idea right?
Candy_Cat1993 - Great time killer
It think this app is fantastic for just killing time while doing stuff. It’s got a good set up and what not but I do feel it’s very limited. Most of the Pokémon are in the city and they have a fast appearance rate but if your out in the suburbs it takes a while for them to show up and it’s always ones that are very common. The amount of pokestops aren’t too great either in the suburbs and the cost of things in the shop can be quite expensive and all this makes it hard to stay interested in the game. If these were to be fixed and made for easier access to people who don’t get a chance to go to the city a lot like myself it would make playing this more enjoyable.
Please make things a bit easier for the ones who can’t catch them all ;P
SG.ArtemisT - 2019 and the game is buggy plus cheaters ignored
as a new player who just started playing in 2019 and with high hope of becoming a loyal customer / supporting financially, i am devastatingly disappointed with my experience. Just a few days into the game ive came across a very very obvious cheater using multiple level 40 accounts to attack / defend all gyms in the surrounding local area. first its unfair to the opposition teams, second HIS own teammates wouldnt be able to get a spot thanks to his selfishness. I tried and reported this a few times to Niantic only ended up getting ignored, not even a single acknowledgement email saying the matter is being investigated.
And today my character suddenly stopped moving completely and i have submitted a support ticket and not yet answered as well.
I am very pessimistic with the integrity of Niantic’’s T&Cs as it seems they dont care about their own policy and the customers either. And i checked this with a few pokemon go communities in social media and they said dont bother, thousands of people have tried but Niantic doesnt do anything about it.
So yeah my suggestion, if you want to play this game casually for free, then go for it. but dont get your hope up and dont even think to support niantic because they dont even care about you. I wonder if this review will get deleted by them also.
TNTCAKE3 - Great game!
Good job on making such a great game Niantic! 😇
My favourite part is probably the GBL (GO battle league), as it is an easy stardust gain and also really good to pass your time when there is no Pokémon. The only problem with the GBL is how you’re only allowed 5 sets a day. This isn’t that much of a bother but it would help remote players. Other than that it’s fine.
Raid battles are also fun and useful, as it’s the only way apart from the GBL to get legendary pokémon. I love how you can invite friends from around the world and beat bosses together, but please allow players to invite more than 10 players to raid. Raids have proved very helpful for me and gave me a big boost for my Pokémon CP’s.
The only other problem I had with the game is that you need to be a high level to nominate pokestops, so if you lowered the level to only 30 or so, it would make playing in a remote area a whole lot easier.
The research tasks are also fun to complete and give you good rewards, and also give you strong Pokémon from the research breakthroughs and thankfully, they added a free rrp with it too.
Thanks for making a great game, TNTCAK3
Rainbow lover 123 - Why I like it and why I don’t and suggestions
So I like It because it’s fun and active but I don’t like it because for me it loads very slow I suggest maybe you can make it so there’s an option if you want a poke stop in your house so if you have a cold you can just go to where the poke stop is in your house and it will be easier do and can there be settings and if they say yes they want a poke stop in there house than you can put it anywhere you want in there house it’ll be in settings incase they change there mind but if they say no than it will not happen and it will be in settings incase they change there mind but anyway i LOVE POKÉMON GO!
it’s awesome this is a add on for you it will only be visible to the people who live in that house
Beachside Gal 32 - Almost a complete game but raids need improvement
Raids are an amazing idea and without them I don’t think I would play the game. However, the areas that I play in are pretty inactive. There are 3 5 star raids on at a time often and my group of 4 people needs more to help us with 5 star raids. I think there needs to be a feature called rallying to a gym. If someone presses a button on a gym it sends a message to trainers in a radius of that gym saying “Player1234 is ready to raid the Example Gym” kind of like the messages for lures. This would help people know which gym to go to and they would be able to actually defeat hard raids. I think this would make the game a lot more accessible for people who don’t live in crowded urban areas and expand the player base.
Maddie and El - Please edit the app in the next update
Great, but I think you shouldn’t have to look for a flat surface just so your buddy can join your adventure. My next complaint is that they don’t give you starter coins so new players such as myself cannot buy anything. Not only that, but it doesn’t tell you how to get coins. Don’t you have to earn them or do you have to get those gift things (not the potion-shaped ones) or do you have to pay for them? Please answer! My last complaint is that you shouldn’t have to get/earn pokeballs! It should be just like in the show where trainers seem to just have an endless supply. Please consider making the suggested changes to the game.
P0ssessedDragon - Changed for the better
Highly recommend redownloading if you haven’t played since it came out. The game has drastically improved with features such as trading, friendships, 4 generations of Pokémon, raiding, dedicated days for the community where you can find an increased number of a certain Pokémon and even find their shiny form, with past days being tyranitar and metagross, research, a kind of story that you gain mythical Pokémon from, legendary Pokémon, and much more. The game now is what everyone wanted the game to be at release, with consistent updates and stuff to do in game wether it be raiding or shiny hunting. I’ve met a lot of good people from the game and the community near me has close to 3,000 people in it. Get your friends back together guys, it’s good now.
That creeper over there - Amazing but fix poke coin prices
This is an amazing game and I absolutely love it but there’s one thing that really annoys me. When purchasing poke coins which is an in game currency, you can buy 100 for $0.99 but then the next amount you can purchase instead of having to buy heaps of $0.99 ones is 550 poke coins but it’s costs $8.00?!?! You could just by 8 $0.99 ones and you can get 800 rather than 550 and it’s the same with the next amounts you can buy. It’s just a massive rip off so I really hope they make it worth it to buy poke coins in bulk and maybe make it a discount when buying bulk like $7 for 800 to encourage people to buy in bulk. Apart from this I love this game :)
Adam kasha - It s very addicting but needs more improvements!
This game is fun and it is good exercise, although it is extremely frustrating to try find a Shiny Pokémon. They need to add more Pokémon to raids for example: Mega Lucario, and Gardivoir. I feel like I sometimes waste money on PokéCoins because I buy one raid pass for 100 PokéCoins, and i lose to a raid. I think they should give us 1 - 2 Raidpasses, per day. And I do t understand why you have to buy pokéballs just to catch Pokémon, you could just go to a PokéStop and get PokéBalls. Every time you discover a new Pokémon, you should get 12,000 Xp. If your Pokémon has been defeated, they should heal automatically. I love Pokémon go but that’s all I had to say. Have a good day!
Fresh Redstone - Love the game want more features like the Pokémon games
I have been a fan of Pokémon for ages and when Pokémon go came out I was extremely excited I played it all the time but there were a few features that should be put in like a breeding centre were you can put Pokémon in and receive certain egg types which would make things easier also they should add feature were you can allocate a home and drop some Pokémon there so you don’t have to transfer use poke coins or have no room and an area we’re you can see other players that are commonly there so you can become friends trade and battle.
From a large Pokémon supporter please add these features in.
Daniel 🎮 - Update issues
Hi I’ve always loved playing Pokémon go and I still do I’m giving a 5 star because I think it’s a great app to get your self out of the house while playing a great game you can enjoy the only problem I’ve had since the current May update for the game is that I could be playing Pokémon go and all of a sudden it just exits the hole entire app and then I have to reload back into the game I’ve tried restarting the app and reloading back into the game numerous times but I find I still have the same problem as before but other then that I still love the game and give it a 5 star review I’m just hoping that the problem gets fix in the next update in the future
Professor Chad - Pokémon Veteran Approved
As a life long Pokémon fan who has enjoyed the franchise since the days of red and blue, and who has played every main series game and many of the spin off titles, I can firmly say that I thoroughly enjoy Pokémon Go and believe it holds it's own in a franchise filled with wonderful titles.
Don't believe any of the "Pokémon go is for casuals" nonsense whined by some veteran players. The game is unique, dynamic and social and encourages exploration, cooperation and fosters a true sense of community.
There are still some problems (bugs, balancing issues for rural players, and slow roll out of requested features) but overall Pokémon go is a positive experience and a game I can see myself being heavily involved with for many years to come.
DoGGggO101 - Great game but…
I love this game and I play it a lot but there are some things that I believe can be made better. First of all, when I am a passenger on public transport, it won’t allow me to interact with poke stops. I think that if you changed it so that you can interact at higher speeds, it would make the game better. Secondly, I have many Pokémon and I love how many there are, but I have not gotten a shiny in a couple of months. One of my friends who also plays the game gets a shiny every third or fourth day, and I think it is unfair how he gets lots of shinies and I get very few. I check most of the Pokémon I see and I would really like a couple more shinies. Thank you.
BIg Brain6969 - Battle league needs serious work
sorry for writing a one star review i enjoy the game but the go battle league is AWFUL. For starters, if you dont live near the niantic servers, for example australia, pvp is so much harder. i recommend adding an option for regional based matchmaking to make the go battle league a lot more fair.
secondly, the great league is just an awful way for pro players to exploit it to get overpowered pokemon under 1500cp. it can be literally any pokemon, even a rayquaza or mewtwo, AS LONG AS IT IS UNDER 1500 CP. I think niantic needs to realise that leveling up is so much harder because people are exploiting to get such powerful pokemon, so FIX GREAT LEAGUE.
apart from that really enjoying it thanks 👋
Lr.b - good concept, poor execution. don’t expect much
The two biggest problems in my opinion are:
The app crashes constantly. This has been an issue for a very long time, and I honestly don’t see it being fixed any time soon. I can’t complete some of the in-game tasks such as using the buddy system because the app crashes. This is especially an issue in battles, which leads me to...
I love the idea of them, but gyms just aren’t fun. They cause the app to crash, there is no benefit to populating multiple gyms due to the coins limit, and trying to keep control of a gym for your team for more than a day is disincentivized. It’s an aspect of gameplay I’d like to engage with more, but can’t get much out of.
There are some features I like though:
1) The variety of Pokémon spawning is good in my experience, with common spawns cycling frequently enough to not get tedious. Rare spawns are at a good rate to be both interesting and valuable.
2) Item drops seem balanced to me, if perhaps a little low on potions and a little too heavy on berries.
3) Team rocket balloons. I wouldn’t spend much time battling them at stops since I don’t want to stop walking in the middle of the street, but the battle balloons make these battles fun (when they don’t crash the game...)
Kyylar - Pokémon go during covid
The game has not handled it well. Many of us are in strict lockdown. Some can only leave the house once a day for a short walk a most. Yet raids are locked behind remote raid passes you have to pay for. Then there’s research and events which REQUIRE you to raid.... With no one able to leave their homes, you have to keep spending money on Remote raid passes which gets expensive. Especially for those who have lost their jobs. Very disappointed with how Niantic have handled this pandemic... not sure how long I’ll keep playing for if more support for the players isn't added.... it’s just seems greedy and disrespectful towards the players during the current state of the world....
13gordo13 - Playing Pokémon
Hello. Wow what an amazing game Pokemon go is. I have been able to get out and see some new places and make a lot of new friends. Walking around parks playing Pokémon has helped with my siatica nerv ( not sure if I spelled that right lol ) even getting my 63 year old Mum out playing to.
I was just wondering how does the trainer club work. I use the same email for both Pokémon go and the trainer club. Is it allowed to be signed into one on my phone and the other on my tablet or is that a type of cheating. I don’t won’t to cause a issue that gets me band. Any information as how it work/ or best way to play both would be great 👍 thanks again for an amazing game and look forward to new events and new Pokémon
Hayayousafzai - Pokémon, Pokémon ,Pokémon,...
I’ve Loved Pokémon ever since I was 6, I remember thinking why Brock always had his eyes shut and I was always making new theories, and still am! But something I had always wished in my heart was... that Pokémon could be real! I bet most of you wish the same.
So before Pokémon Go was released I was bored so I went on to the App Store and Searched up ‘Pokémon’ but just one game which had okay graphics came up (wasn’t Pokémon Go) but... it was for money and I didn’t want to pay money for a game I didn’t even know.
One day my friend was on her phone Logging into Pokémon Go, I asked her “What’s that?” She immediately replied “Pokémon Go” then the Game that I had searched up earlier came up In my head, I asked “isn’t that for money?” She shook her head and said that it was for free.
I didn’t believe her so I went into the App Store and searched up ‘Pokémon’ again, this time the first result was Pokémon Go! I installed it and found out how fun it was, NOTHING has made Pokémon so real for me like that before,
Note: If you want Pokémon to be as real as possible download this app ❤️, if only there were a Pokémon emoji. 💔
Tahliaexcellent - Bearable when it works
Great intention behind this game when it first launched. Since then its became a constant grab for money with time not being devoted to bug testing. The game crashes, has many graphical glitches and other annoyances, which take the fun from the game. PvP was a great idea however it has broke the game in it’s entirety. There is to many cheaters and/or other bad mannered folk, to play the game as it was intended. I respect the free to play model as much as the next person however, there is definitely fairer and better ways of implementing this kinda model without turning it into a grab for money. Events can at times be worthwhile, however these are more targeted towards the newer players, and are rarely rewarding for those who have reached lvl 30 and beyond.
The recent experience with this game has not given me any reason to believe the game can be played for enjoyment.
Kristopher.P - Fix the buddy feature ASAP
I reopened the game after almost 4 years and almost forgot how to play it. There’s quite a lot of different menu’s, and it’s taken quite some time to relearn it’s complexity.
I do enjoy the buddy features, though I struggle to be able to place the buddy in a room to gain stars for playing and feeding the buddy candy - the main reason I’ve detracted a single star. Even in a well lit room or space, the game struggles to identify places and is a waste of time opening during the evening when I’ve finished my shift work.
I’ve also asked a question in the game regarding the ability to place your buddy on your characters shoulder (reflecting Misty and others in the cartoon TV series) however I received no reply.
I don’t like the aspects of the game where spending money is required either.
Kiwi3000 - I’m a 13 year old that thinks this game is awesome
I didn’t know what a Pokémon was until I heard a friend talk about this game so I got the game and I’ve been a Pokémon trainer ever sense the game is awesome but a trading and friend system is needed so you talk to friend in your contacts and trade Pokémon with friends to complete the Pokédex also at the start of the game you should be able to choose all the starters from gen 1, gen 2, gen 3 and so on and more ways to get pokecoins would be amazing thank you and keep up the good work niantic P.S legendarys are really hard to battle and I missed my favorite legend already mewtwo and I want to catch rayquaza so please could you guys make it a bit easier so I catch my first legendary
HairstylesInPokemonGo - Great, but requires some fixes
I’ve been playing for roughly 6 months now. My experience has been great, but there have been a few issues that have bugging me.
1) The speed limit is too low. Sometimes when I go on a jog the speed limit randomly pops up. I’ve asked others on reddit who also had this problem when they clearly haven’t passed 10km/h.
2) It’s too hard to get potions. With the addition of team rocket balloons, I’ve been in a lot more battles then usual. And as such, I used up all my potions. I live in a suburban area, but there aren’t any pokestops around me for a good distance. I’m about run out of revives and potions after fighting the team rocket leaders. There should be a new system where it’s easier to get potions, or that potions are rewards for field research quests.
3) There should be hairstyles and face shapes. This is purely for cosmetics, but there should be hairstyles and more customizations for face shape. This is as all trainers look basically the same. And if you ever do add these, I hope they aren’t behind a paywall. I understand you need to make money, but I don’t want to pay $10 for a different hairstyle.
PhoeniXx45 - I love it but more features please
I love the game but the hair styles we don’t have any plats, buns, out hair, short hair for girls long hair for boys the selection it terrible with the hair. I love the new buddy feature and their adorable but I’d love some more features to play with them and have a button to tech them tricks like a pet. And I hope we can maybe get another team like a team rocket so the have to try and take over stops and they have to battle good Pokémon and turn them dark and gyms they try to take over the gyms and their colour purple or black and they can still catch Pokémon but they will go dark. Other than that I’m obsessed with Pokémon go I love the Pokémon everything about it! 🤩
ClaytonJoycee - good but the bugs :((
this game is by far one of my favourites, i grew up with pokémon so being able to play on phone is really neat when out and about. it IS really nice and has improved so much since it was released but guys, come on, fix your bugs! the first worldwide GO Fest was an absolute sham, i haven’t met anyone who wasn’t disappointed. please update your servers, the fact that people couldn’t play due to the app freezing, lag and being forced shut is really terrible considering people had to pay to play yknow. remote passes have so many bugs too, please fix being kicked from raids & being unable to rejoin. it’s very frustrating and gives a sour taste towards the game. i appreciate the frequent updates but stop adding more fire to the issues than fixing them
Pika power galaxy - Good game but...
Hello I have been playing Pokémon go for a while now and I am enjoying it a lot but their are some things that are annoying. One of those things being u need mobile data or a hot spot on to be able to go through the world to get more Pokemon. Luckily I have a poke stop within my wi fi range so I can still get Pokemon. I understand is impossible for you guys to make this game without having to use wifi but it does annoy me sometimes.
Next thing is you need a pass thing that costs real money to participate in raid battles. They are basically the only way to get high cp Pokemon with out having to grind for a good encounter but I don’t think it’s necessary to pay for to participate in arias battle. I haven’t played for that long so their might be another way but yeah.
That’s my honest review :P
Mr vampony - Missing key Pokémon features
The game is boring and it’s hard to collect coins to buy backpack space, bag space is also way to limited, key features that are missing in this game that we need: surfing, fishing and fast travel/flying to new locations, joystick for surfing only, fishing, poke-ball crafting like in gold and silver, unlimited bag/item/Pokémon storage space, actual Pokémon game music, patches of tall grass to walk into to catch Pokémon just like in the actual games, decent U.i backgrounds and buildings, anything really to make it look like a game and not a avatar walking on a GPS screen, theirs so many more features I could list but theirs no room to right them all down, overall the game is poor due to activities like raids requiring 6-8 or more people to complete, regional Pokémon that can’t be captured in your own country, and micro transactions are very very expensive and it takes forever to earn required coins in game. 1/10
Wondering how you could earn $25 by just signing up? Earn $25 for free by joining Payoneer. Sign Up!
Lwoody52 - Great but...
Love the app would get 5 stars but I would love to see a “sort by most candy” filter option just so I don’t have ti check each different Pokémon if I can’t remember the candy amount, other than that the game is still amazing
Mbjb1972 - While looking at Pokemon ....
When you transfer or evolve Pokemon that aren't the first few it is so bloody annoying taking you back to Bulbasaur. This is a new "bug fix" in the last update? Come on. What a waste of time. When you have nearly 1000 Pokemon this is such a pain. Fix this now.
Nikkithomas780 - NEW FEATURES PLEASE
Great game I love all aspects of the game it’s great guys but please save us all!!
Please change couple things
1) after a certain level players should be able to gift items, pokeballs, revives maybe rare candys, or even just allow the trades to take place in person like trades so players have to b playing together in person in order to use the features,
2) just like all pokemon platforms players should be able to sell items for pokecoins just makes sense it would get more play time for sure also more sales in shop an players can get a few extra coins each week you gotta give us die hard fans some more love guys
Everyone who agrees please like or share or add to this we need to keep making this game amazing
Add my trainer code 5029 6224 7968
Dan the mac geek - Getting better, but...
What happened with this latest update?? When delete, change a mon's name, or evolve, it brings you back to the top of list... Every time!! This version is not usable to do anything w the mons you've caught already. Please fix asap!!
McRescue - No running eggs :(
The speed limit on hatching eggs needs to be increased to 15 km/hr to accumulate egg hatch distance while running. 10.5 is too slow. This is the biggest downfall IMO.
Luckyohgo - Very Frustrating.
The distance reader is horrible, WALKED 20km today and it only counted 4.6km, seemed like my distance counter just froze. Should be Pokemon in more places other than just in Towns or Cities.
Blazedit - Crashes before I can even open it
As soon as I press the app and the Niantic logo comes up, the games crashes back to the home screen, I’ve deleted and downloaded the app countless times and nothing seems to work.
Fieldkiller_28 - Bugs......
Do you test your updates before publishing them? I think not because the game has more and more bugs. the pokemon go plus no longer react under ios 11 and the application crash very often.
Aquarius27 - Great game
In quarantine, we should get daily inscenses and thats the only thing i think u should add, otherwise it’s a great game
Monabieder - New update disappointing
In the previous versions transferring and evolving Pokémon was easy and quick to do. I'm annoyed with the new update, when you transfer a Pokemon, you are automatically scrolled to the top of the Pokemon in your bag, rather than remaining in place. Before the update I could transfer a Pokémon and the app would leave me on the same pokemon number in my bag. Now you have to constantly scroll back.
Zimmiesz - Fraud & Theft!! Horrible customer service!!
I bought some pokecoins for my son and after the purchase went through they did not show up in the account. I called customer service and according to them I received them so they refused to add the coins to the account or to reimburse me for the purchase. I had to call my credit card company and report them for fraud and was reimbursed through them. This company is now being investigated by the Better Business Bureau and MBNA.
Gehsjsuahwh - Why coin limit
There shouldn’t a limit on how many coins I can get in a day it basically punishes the player for playing the game there is no real or justified reason for this please make bigger wallet
Zztrizz - Horrible raid boss catch rate
I have done so many raids where I get a majority of excellent throws and the raid boss still couldn’t get caught. Terrible rng
Elblondforlife - Le kilométrage!!!!
J’ai courut six kilomètres avec l’app ouvert tout le long avec mon LTE 200m calculer en tout j’aurais plusieurs œufs éclos au final aucun de éclos ☹️☹️☹️ très déçu du calcul de distance.
MercuryShadows - Changes
1) bring the incense back to how it was during the first few years of the pandemic.
2) the price for the bundle of 3 remote raid passes has increased to 300 coins. While, a single still costs a 100. I have also read that they are possibly getting rid of the single remote raid passes in the shop.
3) bring back the 1 coin pack that had a remote raid pass. No one has the money to keep forking over money to buy remote raid passes.
DrummerDebber - Changes are making this game unplayable
Pokémon used to be a super fun game but I’ve had to change my once 5* rating to 1* and thinking about quitting. I used to spend about $30/month but won’t be spending another dime.
Some of the they’ve made recently:
- Gotten rid of 1 coin bundles which include a free remote raid pass
- Reduced community day hours from 6 to 3, so many people will be unable to play during this short timeframe (Why? How does this cost them
- Increased the price of remote raid passes
- Decreased the frequency Pokémon spawn with incense (Again why? No one wants to buy them anymore now which loses them money)
- Lowered legendary rates from GO Battle League
- Lowered rare candy rates instead of increasing as promised
At this rate many people have opted out of playing. Why bother?
No niantic - Niantic getting greedy
1) you made incense impractical
2) you ruined community DAYS
3) lowered rare candies from raids
4) changed 3 remote raid passes from 250 coins to 300
5)removed remote raid pass from 1 coin bundle
I’ll be taking a break until you solve these issues.
WandaBlonda - Save your money
Niantic makes a TON of money off this game and yet the app has so many issues that they won’t or can’t fix. Would you buy a new car knowing the brakes would fail daily or the engine quits all the time? If you put money into this app then maybe you would. This is what Niantic is selling, a lemon of an app.
Stop wasting your money on Pokémon GO and buy yourself something frilly.
Figuugu - Awesome ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Love the game pushes me to go out side in self isolation ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Aadensett - Great game but...
Great game but you need data or wifi to play and some people only have limited access to data and can’t spin Pokestops from home. Also, there should be Poké Centers like in the main series games or at least make it more common to find potions and revives cause I love battling but it’s hard to do so when you only have Pokémon that are super low in cp still alive. Also I should mention that I found a shiny Roselia and had no poke balls so I think they should give you Poké balls when you find a shiny and don’t have poke balls or at least give you a way to keep the shiny where it is so you can catch it later. A
Nd my freind code is 4505 6927 4190 so invite me to a raid sometime
Sriracha24 - Crashinngggggg again
Oh my god...this game has started crashing every other time when i am in a raid battle.
Kelsey7313 - This game needs A LOT of work!!!!
The game has a lot of potential, but it also needs a lot of work! There are so many things wrong with this game!!
1. It shouldn’t take more then 10+ balls/berries to catch a Pokémon. Especially if they’re just going to flee right after!
2. Raids shouldn’t be so hard! Not everyone can always go out when there’s a raid going on. Let alone find enough people to battle with them to get the legendary Pokémon.
3. The battle CP should be more matchable to the CP of your own Pokémon. A Basic Pokemon against a bunch of legendary Pokémon, that’s not really fair! No ones gonna win that!
4. Research should actually have Pokémon you can’t always catch in the wild. I have enough Zubats, thanks!! More rare Pokémon would be nice.
5. You should be able to earn more then 50 coins from a gym per day! Or be able to remove your own Pokémon from the gym whenever you please. It’s not worth it to have it in there more then 1 day. I know someone that had theirs in a gym for 45 days. Only got 50 coins.
6. Not everyone is at a high level, a lot of the events that take place can’t be done with low levels or basic Pokémon. Maybe make it fair for everyone and give everyone a chance to catch some rare Pokémon.
The list can go on and on, hopefully better changes are In the near future for this game!
Swordran - Room for improvement!
1) I would like a grass feature from the original gameboy game
2) Major grind! I’ve had the game from before it even released in Canada, had been inactive for a year but all this time and I’ve got 4 maybe 5 perfect Pokémon!
3) I think you should be able to remote into a raid anyways, like within a certain radius of where you are and to register for it so you can have more participate instead of looking for one hopefully having others around especially in the town/city near the country! Even in the city I’ve scene some good raid opportunities but no shows, probably because no one saw anyone there.
4) have monster level or gain combat power when in battles or raids would be nice!
5) now glitching where the whole app closes in the middle of throwing a poke ball or hatching an egg.
6) Remote raid promo shows up but won’t let me use my 1 gold for the items. I have enough space, I’ve updated and restarted the app etc.
7) Stardust takes forever to gain! Even if you do quests and battles.
8) Do and fix the above and I think the game could really pick up some traction!
9) play with Pokémon feature half the time doesn’t recognize flat level unless a couple feet off the ground, and gets so big the minister that you have to be like 20 feet away to see reasonably at least.
Oh and iPhone 12 so not like old struggling phone.
Sad_Panda1 - Sylveon + the Tao Trio
Niantic probably gets a lot of complaints about Sylveon, and I’m not surprised. Sylveon has been in most of the Pokémon games, except Pokémon Go. Though, I don’t understand why. Sylveon could be a hidden Pokémon, and you’d have to hatch it. Or, you could have Eevee as your buddy, get two hearts with it, and you could teach it a fairy-type move and evolve it. Just a thought. :)
Oh, and can the Tao Trio make their debut in Pokémon Go? I like the Tao Trio, I think they look pretty cool, and putting them in legendary raids doesn’t sound like a bad idea.
Tachycardicdoll - New update keeps shutting app
Since the update yesterday, we’ve haven’t been able to play. Please fix, thank you
What what and what - Pokècoins
The pokècoins never work I can’t buy anything or else I see an infinite loading sequence please fix this
LegendFighter2006 - It’s quarantine
On the throwback quests, can you not put “walk your buddy till you get a candy” on it because it’s quarantine and I can’t walk anywhere and my house is small as hell and so is my backyard and my family won’t let me go outside
1234456777644 - Bob
Addd me 2054 5050 9118
Tomtrix2011 - Garbage
No one will help you they take your money and leave you hanging and no one will contact you at all it’s one big scam
Kjkukj - please fix
great game but when i hit 12 excellents out of 14 balls in a legendary raid please let me catch it
Kayna1 - Virtual friends
The app is great, what I would love to see is:
- Be able to send massive gifts to friends, it is a pain to have to choose one and send then another and send, why not just choose all the friends you want to send and that’s it.
- when the gyms have raids and there is people in the lobby waiting, it would be great to have a sign to see how many people is right now in the gym so you can join them or not.
- when are we going to be able to transfer Pokémon long distance instead of only when you are close?
- also it would be neat to be able to sort your pockemons by appreciate.
Cool ce jeu fun - Pokemon go
I love so much pokemon go is the best game ever he make me walk and see the world around me 🤩 THANKS YOU POKEMON GO !!❤️❤️
No prints out - Niantic doesn’t care about COVID-19
In the middle of a pandemic Niantic is shutting down the accounts of “spoofers”. Those are people who are still trying to play while they are quarantined. SHAME!!!
SkyeInTheSky - Amazing
Game works amazing. All the new features like trading and battling are perfect. Love all the new features that keep getting added.
735146853 - Latest update
Why am I only getting a black screen when I open Pokemon Go after this latest update???
Hanmyar - Fix ur gps
Wild ninetails on the nearby but since ur gps is incompetant i couldnt get it.
Lyndyboy9 - Good
Pokemon gotta catch em all
Pokemanlover4321 - Loved it before the update
Big fan of the game, but when the new update came out and you have to play with AR+ and it sucks! I don't want to be spinning in circles in the streets.. come on, fix this to turn it off again!
PS123Snowy - Bugs for iPhone6
The latest update on Aug 25th prevents me to start the App. I can’t get pass the title screen, and it keeps exiting the App and takes me back to the Apple Home screen. Please fix ASAP.
Roxxie_Cotton - Hackers in the go battle league
Kay y’all need to do something about the lag and hacking in the go battle league. How can my opponents get extra blocks and be able to charge attack me within two seconds and I haven’t even had a chance to charge attack on my own.
ThunderAwaits - They care only about money
As the title says. They don’t care about the player base. Just income. They have made so many missteps the last few months that show it. And now they charge people $15-$20 for GoFest and cheap out on giving everyone shinies when they know that’s what people want. Rip off.
Big lion69 - Stop
They need to stop “trying to build a community”
Kyla Ketch-up - Adventure sync needs to track more frequently
Daily/ weekly steps are horribly underrepresented to the point where I’m missing days full of 10,000+ steps. Please fix this.
Deedee manley - 5 stars
So much fun for Pokémon enthusiast like me
I love the game so much
Blue_tsi - Incense no longer works when stationary
I have been playing since 2016. I use the game as a way to distract from life. I am disabled and very rarely can I get out in my chair to get around the block. I’m usually house bound or in a car (and either gas prices that won’t be very often now). Now that the incense doesn’t work, I don’t get to play. I live on a quiet street with no poke stops within reach. I spent money ALL the time on the game to buy what I needed to play stationary. This is a huge hit to the disabled community. It’s discrimination making it so only abled individuals can play. I missed out on cubone spotlight hour due to this change. And can no longer shiny hunt (not that I have good odds anyway) during events such as spotlight hour. I’m honestly ready to delete the app. 7 years of loyal game play and purchasing and they go and take away the ONLY feature they offered for the disabled players.
Nick240416 - Good but has issues
Constantly freezes or has errors/network problems. Can’t run or ride my bike to hatch eggs so that side of the game is a bit of a write off. Inability to manually dodge attack during battle sucks. Also having very few poke stops near my day to day areas makes it tough.
Certainly stuff to improve but otherwise quite enjoyable.
Nevaeh May - APP INSTANT CRASHING AFTER NEWEST UPDATE
I recently updated to the latest version of the app... But when I open the game it shows the white NIANTIC loading screen (just for 1 second) and then it force exit back to my Home Screen. I tried deleting the app, re-downloading it and trying again... but with the same exact result. I’ve tried doing that multiple times. There is absolutely no explanation to this happening. I have no idea what I can do to fix this problem.
PLEASE SOMEBODY HELP ME FIX THIS INSTANT CRASHING PROBLEM!?
Canadian Pmkn Trainer - Frustrating and Disappointing
I came back to Pokemon Go during the pandemic and have been playing consistently since. The Pokestop spin distance has made the game 10x more enjoyable than it has ever been. You can comfortably reach mosf Pokestops from a safe distance, without needing to be directly on top of them, and given the GPS's inaccuracies, it makes everything feel a lot more forgiving and enjoyable. If these changes are rolled back in Canada, I will be benching this game for good. What a shame, so much wasted potential.
Fun ??? - Bug
When I try to load the game it crashes it’s terrible
Le quebec de demain! - careless of user experience
“improvements” are worthless;
user experience is too poor.
to be honnest , beside increasing the number of monster in the game , i csnt even tell you Real upgrades/add ons on the game.
Not enough quest variety and event quest are
likely the same every time.
(We get it that the team rocket is around , but can we fight sometime « leaders » others than the 4 useless overpowered one ?)
Gameboy game was at least let you fight in wild for improvement, this one is pay to upgrade and even there you’re not reaching the random npc.
what impress me the most is when they decide to « improve the graphics » that are not seen by the audience but that multitude of users cant play anymore cause them phone doesnt have no more the ability to do so.
raid , despite to be the best portion of the game need to be accessible not only to elite but standard player ; 30% of the people from my friend list quit because them lack of time to lvl. Ithey were mainlystruggling to any 3to5 stars raid.
leveling , thanks to have promising to bring easier exp but that would have been fun it it was true...
Quest can give you what 500xp maybe 1.500xp over the questing if captures but you need 1.5Millions xp to reach for next level . on over 7h contant gaming double xp + xp item enable doing over and over the quests ive reach 700k xp. that represent 6-7month of regular play and not even half of a level. So technically Worthless.
deep drop lvl cap for inferior level and increase task reward.
Raid Cue with country or even at large , remote passes should be the currency to cue to a random raid to a lvl choose by users .
