- It’s good but needs some improvement

First, I’d like to say that it’s a pretty good game but it has its flaws. I think that one major issue is running out of pokeballs which is super annoying. When you give your Pokémon to the professor you should get back the pokeball you used to catch it with. Say you catch like your fourth Bellsprout and you just give it to the professor for some Bellsprout candies. Well that kind of stinks for you because you don’t get that pokeball and it all seems like a waste. Second, coins should be more available in-game. Say you are low in pokeballs and you’d like some more but of course you need money for coins and coins for pokeballs. I know it’s a free game and Pokémon GO makes most of its money off of in app purchases but it’s a pretty popular game so maybe charge money for the game itself or money for cosmetics on your character. Another thing is there are so little chances to battle your Pokémon. You can really do trainer battles and that’s it. I mean you can do gym battles and battle friends but what happened to being able to battle wild Pokémon till there weak so you can catch them. You should add a feature where you can battle other trainer based on their skill set and Pokémon compared to your own. I’m just saying there are a few blockades in the way of this game becoming more fun and just overall better. This game is decent otherwise. Maybe try and make some of these improvements and maybe more add-ons to the game.

- Amazing? Not with so many problems.

I’ve been playing Pokémon Go for a while. It been really great. Now there’s just a lot of problems. One of them is with the shop. I’m getting the constant loading screen when I try to get something which means I have to resort to my IPad Mini 2 where it takes several attempts just to get something without it crashing constantly. I looked at Pokémon Go on the App Store for my IPad and it said it worked with that IPad. Well, not so much I’m afraid. The next one is how you get coins. There needs to be other ways to getting Pokecoins without having to wait for your Pokémon to return or spending real money. Maybe throw in some tasks with the reward being pokecoins. Last but not least are the online battles. PLEASE fix the charged tm issue. I have lost so many battles due to how broken it is. I would be against people who would use a charged tm not then use it again almost immediately. I mean 4-10 seconds fast. I know what charged tms should take a while and which ones shouldn’t. Especially ghost type charged tms. It shouldn’t charge up slowly for one Pokémon and quickly for another like Shadow Ball(slowly) and Shadow Punch(quickly). I had encountered someone who used Bone Club 5 or 6 maybe even 7 times before I could even use 1 or even 2 Shadow balls. Yes I am talking about the Halloween Cup too as this is when I experienced this issue. These need to be fixed.

- I love this game! But there is ONE problem.

This is one of my favorite games ever. But there is a huge difference between the girl avatars and the boy avatars. I tried to overlook it, but it’s kind of ruining my fun. Honestly, it kind of hurts my heart. A lot of games make the hairstyles and clothes different depending on gender. Long story short, please make it so the clothes are the same whether you’re a boy or a girl. And maybe you could make the hairstyle and body less gendered like you did in Pokémon Magikarp Jump and get rid of choosing genders at all. Or just make the outfits the same for everyone. Like, maybe everyone could have the option of the male or the female clothes without having to change their characters gender. Also, I’ve noticed that you can only change your name a certain amount of times. This is disappointing because maybe someone changed their in game name a bunch because they couldn’t decide what sounded better. But then they changed their name in real life because their gender changed or something like that. Then they wouldn’t be able to change their name again. I think you should make it so you can change your name as many times as you want but you have to wait 30 days between name changes so people don’t just change their name willy nilly. Well, thank you for reading my review. I truly hope you’ll consider my suggestion. -Pokémon Trainer Alex

- 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!

- 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.

- Hands down, best app available.

I’ll shoot it to you straight. Don’t listen to the negative reviews. Contrary to “popular” belief, this game isn’t “paywalled” unless you have a fear of missing out on what other players spend 6+ hours achieving in a day. A very small portion of exclusive events are paywalled, like go fest/safari zone and that’s it. If you want items from the store, Drop in as many gyms as possible, it’s good for 350 coins per week if done right, and have reasonable expectations (and by that I mean shiny Pokémon. Shiny Pokémon in GO are given out at an insanely high rate compared to main series games) Competitive gameplay (Go battle league) having some glitching issues, doesn’t make it a bad game for those that choose not to play competitively, and even with the glitching, proper investments in Pokémon far outweigh any glitching that occurs, that and most players just expect to go 5/5 on every round played and anything less than that is a failure on Niantic’s part. Raids are very easy if you toss your IV expectations out the window and focus on high CP counters. Each Pokémon has given base stats, and IV doesn’t make or break most Pokémon when raiding, counters make or break your success. The game is completely add free, it’s free of actual currency, it’s fun, it’s addictive and it gets you outside. Just play it how YOU want to play it, and you’ll love it regardless.

- It is fun.

It is indeed fun and has grown a lot since I first started about four years ago. I am also really glad they retracted with the sprite version of Pokémon. I would have quit. I am proud that those behind Pokémon Go are doing what they can to help people enjoy the app during the pandemic. Even more so, I commend them for standing up for the black people and all races. Being anything other than white dose not mean that they mean less. To me they mean so much more. Now on from that and back to Pokémon Go. I find myself pondering weather to keep with Pokémon go, or to let it go. Community days end when workers are getting off work or kids getting off school. That is extremely unfair. There should also be more Pokémon, Pokémon stops and gems for those in rural areas. Also, I purchased a remote raid pass for the event. When I hopped in to join, the people left so I hopped out only to find that I had completely lost my remote raid pass. This was also unfair as other raid passes do not vanish when you hop in and out when others leave. Another reason for me to consider leaving. It is very wrong for the raid to be used up like that especially when we have to pay for them. I surely will not buy another, event or not. Sure, coins, incubators, lucky eggs and so on are expected to disappear when used, but when other raid passes let you hop in and out, it is shameful to take the remote raid pass without having participated in any raid. That is all I have to say.

- 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.

- 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!

- 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.

- 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...

- 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.

- 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.

- I love this game but

I love this game and have been playing it for about 2 years now with no problems. It is my favorite game by far, mainly because of the random shinies. I love the shiny rates and think they are just right. My prized possession is my shiny volbeet, which is awesome to me because I live in the US and the shiny was only in one event. My problem with this though is that I think that if there is an event with a Pokémon that is usually found in a different hemisphere, it should be harder to find the shiny. I think this will make people get out for it and try way harder to grind for the shiny. Also I think we should get to pick from more Pokémon for the community days we pick. I think they should all be new shinies because sandshrew is my favorite shiny and it got beat out by Pokémon that were new shinies. Obviously this isn’t a big deal but I think they should all be new shiny options or they should be new Pokémon into the game, like Skrelp would be an awesome com day, mainly because if Dragalgae. Or you could add more options maybe for the com days. Anyway, no real problems with this game, but I do think that these may make the game better. You probably don’t care about these comments, but I think this would be cooler. I don’t know. Anyway I love this and recommend it highly.

- 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. EDIT I forgot to mention: I’m not sure why but when I’m on the bus or in any vehicle as a passenger I should be able to spin stops for rewards not “try again later”. It doesn’t make sense to allow me the option to catch Pokémon but I can’t get stops or gain steps with my eggs or buddy.

- 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!!!)

- 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

- 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.

- 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

- 4 stars due to issues with premium trainer battles.

Pokémon Go is by far my favorite pass time app. Everything I can say is positive with the exception of one flaw within the Pokémon go trainer battles. Sometimes during battle, quite often for more me, my character seem to be stuck and Can not attack my opponent which causes me to loose the battle. Each battle pass is good for 5 rounds, the more you win in a row the better the rewards. This is frustrating Being that I pay for the premium battle passes, and 1 glitch can cause you to loose out on the best rewards. Sometimes it happens only once and sometime it can take all 5 rounds to correct the issue. I’ve had this happen to me more time than I care to count and I’ve tried multiple things to try and correct the issues such as restarting the app, checking for updates, restarting device, and connecting to WiFi, none of which seem to make a different. I have also been in battles where you can see the same thing happen to an opponent. Also my friends experience the same issues just on a much lesser scale than I seem to. It is the only real issue that I would like to see corrected. Niantic has been very proactive when it comes down to quickly fixing and correcting all issues as they have come up.

- 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.

- 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

- 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!

- 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.

- 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!

- 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!!!

- 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

- Why the challenges

The games good I’ve had it ever since it came out it has amazing updates and features like the buddy and egg hatching mechanic but one thing I hate are the challenges. The problem with the challenges (I’m talking about the special ones not the ones that you get from pokestops) are that they don’t count unless you had the challenge. If you don’t understand I’ll explain, for the new challenge or Meltan go challenges there’s one specific challenge that took me a year to finally do, it was to catch a ditto which I had done an hour before I got the challenge.i had caught a ditto an hour prior of getting the catch a ditto challenge and the problem is it didn’t count towards the challenge, but not only that I had evolved a magikarp three weeks ago and I just got the challenge evolve a magikarp challenge I don’t want to wait another year to just get another stage of a challenge that I will inevitably will have to do that will take me another year to do I just want to play the game and earn the challenges that I did too early without knowing it was too early. I hope this is seen so at least I have some sort of reasoning for this and if this is seen by a developer thanks this game is really nice and I cannot wait to see what else this game holds in the future.

- 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.

- 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.

- Great, but needs improvement

I love this game and wish I could do everything in it but I don’t live close to any gyms so raids are almost impossible for me to do. I have been playing since the beginning but do not have a single legendary because of this. I know that they are sometimes in breakthrough boxes, but rarely. I just wish that I could get a legendary Pokémon. And when I said I’ve played since the beginning I have but under a different account. Also I have some issues with the special research because I evolved a grimer and literally 3 minutes later I got a quest to evolve a grimer and it really ticks me off that it is making me use up the candies to evolve another one instead of powering up my near perfect IV muk. Also the game crashes whenever I try to trade or do anything online. Idk If anyone else has this issue but I would greatly appreciate it if it would be fixed. That’s pretty much all of my complaints with this game. Other than this it is perfect. I love how you can actually be a trainer though I wish using AR wouldn’t crash on me so I could feel more immersed in the world. Also I would love to see some changes to the map. It has looked the same for ages and a fresh new look would be nice. Maybe implement a skin system so that you can change it. :)

- 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.

- Great Fun!!!

First let me say that I’m 53 years old, so I’m most likely not the average player of this game. I first became interested in the world of Pokémon back in 1998, when my older children discovered the TV show. Because of their heavy interest in all things Pokémon I took interest as well, trying to be a good dad. I invested HEAVILY in the card game, took the kids to weekend tournament each week, even became our local gym leader (because I was one of the rare adults who knew Pokémon as well as the children). Now we flash forward almost 20 years later an I’ve re-entered the world of Pokémon through Pokémon Go! The game is so well laid out, with quick and easy to learn game aspects, even for a newby to Pokémon. The best part of the game is that it’s design encourages the players to get out and move around. To walk and explore your town or city. Since every park, mall, restaurant, or store may be a hotspot for a new breed of Pokémon you’ve yet to catch. I’ve even been able to get my wife playing the game. Which says a lot since she almost totally avoided stuff back when our older children were heavily into the Pokémon world. This game is by far one of the best, most fun and addictive games I’ve ever played. Once you start you’ve “GOTTA CATCH EM ALL”!!!

- Not pleased currently

I’ve been playing Pokémon go since it first came out. There have probably only been 2 game apps I’ve ever used for this long. There are two things I’m currently unhappy about. How difficult it is for rural players to get some action. It is at least 5 miles to the closest pokestop—-there’s no way of walking that far, which I thought was the main idea of PG (getting people more active). There is NO Pokemon spawning near my home. I can walk from one end of my road to the other end and there are 2 spots where they spawn. 2 lousy spots. Once I catch what’s there, it takes a while for a new one to spawn so what am I supposed to do? Turn around and walk the miles again for 2 more Pokemon? And the raid battles. There is no way on earth that a small town will ever get 17-20 people together to catch a legendary out here. It’s impossible even with social media. My second complaint is the lack of revives! I understand that you want to make money on the game but come on! Pokémon go is one of the few games I have spent money on. I have mainly bought lucky eggs and incubators. No way am I gonna sink money into revives. I guess when all my Pokémon faint I will just quit the game. It wouldn’t be as bad if there was a way to earn coins in the game. I used to earn a few coins by defending gyms but you hardly earn any coins currently.

- Best game ever but it needs some work

People say that this game takes forever to load but it doesn’t. They say that Pokémon hardly show up anywhere but that’s not true they have been popping up all over the place. I can hardly go one minute without a Pokémon showing up on my screen. So those people need to shut their mouth unless they know what they are talking about. This game even makes lazy kids who sit on the couch and play video games all day get up and go outside. It helps people get exercise and many people have said that this game has helped change their lives and those of many others. Pokémon is a great game and anyone who thinks otherwise can go cry to their mommies about it. That being said, this app does need a little help. For instance pikachu is very rare in fact maybe a little too rare. I have heard many people complain about not even seeing a pikachu at all ,me being one of those people. Also there isn’t much to do on the game in rural areas and it would be nice if you could just do something with the game to make it easier on those living in rural areas. Also you need to make it easier for people to earn gold coins. Because most of us have been playing this game for years and still have not gotten any gold coins.

- 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. Update 6/6/20: 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.

- Go Battle League

The G.B.L used to be very fun and competitive. I could go out and see what people were using and strategize teams capable of doing well. But, now in season 3 the algorithm feels socialist and fixed, way more than last season. What I mean by that is, I’ll use a team and everyone I go up against “just happens” to have the perfect team to destroy mine more than half the time, so I’ll change my team to combat the teams that I have been seeing, but the teams I’ve been seeing are no longer what I am seeing and again everyone I verse has a different team which “happens” to be made to easily destroy my team. This algorithm has in fact ruined the G.B.L. by removing most if not all of the competitiveness. So, people get wins when the algorithm says they should win and loses when the algorithm says they should lose. The only way to really get more than 50% wins seems to be if your opponent makes a mistake, which doesn’t usually happen because people who you verse when ranking matters usually know what they’re doing because they got to the rank they have by knowing what they’re doing. So, socialism may sound great, but in a competitive game it is asinine to have the system built around an idea that completely lacks competitiveness. Please allow the matching system to be more capitalist because capitalism is very competitive. And competitiveness is way more fun than non-competitiveness. I’ll probably increase my ranking if this change is made.

- Not Right

I have been playing Pokémon go for several years now and about a year ago started getting into the raid. Until today I actually enjoyed playing Pokémon and doing the raids. I got the chance to do the new raid boss Giratina and actually had enough people to down the raid boss just before the time ran out. However I DIDNT GET Giratina because it would NOT stay in the White ball. I gave it berry’s but NOTHING WOULD HELP. I was not over throwing the balls and I didn’t miss 1 time but didn’t get the Pokémon because it would NOT stay in the ball AT ALL didn’t matter if I threw a berry or not. We do the raids to win the Pokémon and to do all that work and not win the Pokémon because it won’t stay in the ball is very wrong. It’s hard enough to actually find enough players to down a boss like Giratina where I live which is why I’m so very frustrated this happened. I’m sure some might think I’m just complaining but this is the 2nd time this has happened. I fully believe something needs to be done about this. If we are given these special white balls then it should be very hard for the Pokémon to brake out so we actually get the prize we are there for not break out as soon as it’s caught ever time. If that’s the case then why give us the special white balls .I don’t know if this has been happing to others I’m sure I’m not the only one but I can say if this happens again I will stop playing it Pokémon!!

- Overall a fun game

The catching system is charmingly simple yet not incredibly easy, and the game provides incentive to catch Pokémon in the form of the Pokédex. And while legendary Pokémon are obviously going to be sought after as status symbols, the gym system is painstakingly easy, but the Niantic does give pretty generous rewards for participating in gym battles, such as up to 50 premium currency a day to keep all content technically free, but I find it a chore to go out to an isolated gym or to a gym in the middle of the night just so I can make sure I cap out on 50 pokecoins a day. It is nearly impossible to fail a gym attack once you reach level 20, which isn’t a long time at all, and thus victories don’t feel fulfilling and rather tiresome. But, the game does put an emphasis on meeting up with people to battle a difficult enemy, also known as a raid, but that is the extent of difficult content, and even then you will never need more than 10 decently leveled people to breeze through a raid. I understand the combat system for raids, but I believe the gym combat system could benefit greatly from a more engaging overhaul that adds more depth. Overall, however, the charming and incredibly fun catching system compensated for the uninteresting combat system and still provides an enjoyable experience.

- Good, but limited now

This game is great. It is fun and does get you out, but some changes have occurred which have really made the game less fun. First, there is really no way to get coins, which allow you to play, without buying them (you can get some things you need within the game but it cripples your ability to play much). So now you have to pay to play more than just the minimum. Next, there is no longer any incentive to fight to capture a gym or to hold one. You can get 50 coins per day by holding a gym - but there isn’t anything you can buy for 50 coins in the game. For instance, an incubator, which lets you hatch an egg, costs 150 coins. And that’s it. You don’t get any points or experience beyond just practice fighting and you Pokémon’s are stuck in the gym until someone takes it over - which there isn’t much incentive to do. I’ve had Pokémons sit there for days waiting for someone to take the gym. I’ve noticed players now no longer support their pm’s in the gym if they are under attack and some players put in very week pm’s so they don’t have to waste resources to revive. As more players figure this out, fighting for and holding gyms will become a thing of the past. And people without money to spare will find the game frustrating and limited. So sad, because it really was a great, community game once.

- Battery Drainer

I really loved this game back in the beginning, and I forgot why I deleted it till I recently reinstalled it to my phone. It is a major battery killer. Ever since I downloaded it three days ago, I have been dealing with my phone randomly powering off, even when I made sure to completely close the app, or I turn off my phone at half power, then go to power it back on after a few hours, only to find that my previously charged phone is suddenly dead and won’t turn back on. I don’t know if it is just the app, or there is something more to it, but it is rather coincidental that I started having these problems shortly after downloading the app. Today, my battery life was stalled at 100% for over three hours, and I did everything I could to figure out how to fix it, including restarting the phone and meddling with the settings. The battery percentage only started going down after I deleted the app. Like I said, I doubt it was the only thing causing the power drain, but the app certainly wasn’t helping, and I hadn’t ever had these problems that I listed till the app was on my phone. Which is too bad, because I love this app, it’s cute, and I really would like to catch more Pokémon, but I don’t want to risk it. I don’t know if I am the only one who has this problem, but whatever it is, I hope it is resolved and I can download it again one day.

- Great Concept, But It Could Use Polish

So, Pokemon games are about getting Pokemon and pitting those Pokemon against other Pokemon, right? Well this game is just that, but without the second part. Sure, catching Pokémon in the real world with AR is genius, but it gets old after a while. And the only way to battle other Pokemon is going to gyms. Now, what’s smart about the gyms is that you need to be a certain level to enter certain gyms, which encourages you to level up more by, again, getting Pokemon. Now, what I mean by the battling part of the game not being there is this: it sort of feels like an afterthought. If your Pokemon faint in battle, you’re in for some SERIOUS grinding. First, you have to get potions from pokestops so you can use them to heal your Pokemon. But oh no! If your Pokemon aren’t leveled up enough, you can’t heal them! Wanna level them up? Sorry! Nope! YOU have to be a certain level in order to level up your Pokemon, AND THEN you can heal them. This is literally the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever experienced in a video game. Granted, gym battles are optional, but if the option is available, don’t make it so freaking tedious!! Although, I have hope that you will fix these problems, because this game used to have SEVERE internet issues, and you fixed that. So please, listen to my complaints and fix the grinding issues!!


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.)

- Location accuracy is terrible; gets real boring.

I could be right where a pokestop is, and when I click on it it says “walk closer “. How much closer do you want me to get??? Then all those annoying warnings about my speed when I’m not even moving is a HUGE NEGATIVE! The location accuracy is terrible; I can be right in one area, then the game will show I’m half way across from where I actually am. Furthermore, as they continue to add new Pokémon to the game; the same repetitive ones still show up consistently all the time. There’s no variety to catch unless you are walking all over the place; at random you may come across something worth the effort that’s IF the game is functioning properly; or if they have some sort of event happening. Lastly, I finally deleted the game because any time I have an opportunity to do something with the game, it ALWAYS takes a lifetime to load up EVERY time i get ready to try and play it, or it won’t load at all. Additionally you can’t play it if the game fails to read your location properly. I honestly wouldn’t recommend this game. Update: now the experience as far as catching the Pokémon is worst! They seem to now make you use the augmented reality when trying to catch the Pokémon forcing you to lose several balls, because if you move the phone around you lose sight of the Pokémon too. It’s like they think they’re making this game better, but it just gets worse with each update!

- My Favorite Game...By Far

I haven’t written a review for Pokemon Go yet, and I think it is about time. I have been playing since the day the game was officially launched and have loved it. I love the creativity, and all of the little details like team rocket taking over. The ability to play with my pokemon in the Let’s go Pikachu game on Nintendo Switch. I love how some community days I didn’t really catch everything I wanted to, but then the next time I catch twice as much, almost like it is making up for the last time. I love how the game is fair, you do not get everything all the time, but it is made up in other ways. One community day I remember it being awful, but part of the reason was I was in a bad location, so I didn’t get to evolve my Squirtle I think it was, but the next day I caught a Snorlax, it was just hanging out at my house. I love the incorporation of exercise and the idea of getting up and going to catch pokemon like a real trainer would. This game has meant so much to me, and I want to say that all of you at the Pokemon Company are amazing! In all of the games you create, the movies and episodes to the show that come out, the cards, the toys. I love it, and hope it goes on for so many more years to come!

- Love and hate it.

I have been playing this game since day one. For the most part I love it! Gets me out of the house, meet new people, feel accomplished, and keep trying for something better. You get coins from dropping off pokemon at gyms. You can get 50 coins in a day. So spending money really isn’t required. Of course if you want more raid passes, cool gear, and more you can spend money. Now to the negative. There is some tasks that you fly through and some that take TO LONG! Catching a ditto is part of the task. I catch everything it tells me to and nothing. The odds are to low. Team Rocket needs major improvement. It’s not worth it to me to do team rocket. You get a chance to encounter a Zubat plus it’s evolves, Rattata plus evolves, baulbasaur one evolve, charmander no evolves, squirtle no evolves, and Dratini no evolves. Needs more variety. Another special event is a chance to catch a shiny koffing or ekans. I have caught more then 150 each and no shinys. One of my friends have one. The new rating system is awesome but Pokémon that you caught so long ago and probably not gonna get again are 1 or 2 star of a three star rating with high or low attack, defense, and hp. I don’t know how much space I have so I better stop. Game has highs and lows. Still enjoy playing. Just needs work.

- Addicting, Free & Gets you moving!

Admitting I play Pokémon is kind of hard but I can honestly say that it’s fun to get out and explore new places and you get so much exercise. I’ve been playing for a couple of months now and I’ve lost 20 lbs. I started playing during the pandemic and thought I’d quit when places started opening, but I kept playing. I would really love it if there was a way though, to see how much candy you have for a specific Pokémon as your going to catch it. Sometimes I don’t know if I need to waste a certain berries or pinaps on them. Catching a shiny is the highlight of anyone’s day lol but if you don’t have enough candy for it to evolve it, it’d be nice to know before trying to catch it. Maybe where it shows the CP and the Pokémon name, you could add in how many candy you have for that Pokémon. Other than that, you’ve done an amazing job. I also think that if you catch a water type, their fast and charge attacks should be water by default. If you want to change them to other options they have, then do so, but I caught a grass type and it’s moves were both water and dark. It throws me off when I search for “grass” and it pulls them up but neither of their moves are grass lol.

- It’s good- but the Raids are a big issue

I have had this game since it came out in 2018- I stopped playing it when I was in school and worked at the same time so I didn’t have any free time to walk around after. Now that I have some more time I redownloaded it to play. It’s very good for majority of it- my biggest problems are the raids. Recently (including today) I had gotten and invite to a raid so I used my remote pass- however it took my remote pass and kicked me out of the gym and I could no longer go in it. Another thing is that after I win a few raids I will never catch the Pokémon- it doesn’t even have to be a legendary. My friends that are at a lower level are able to catch it since at first I thought it had to do with your level. I find it very unbalanced you do a raid that takes time/resources to do and you don’t even get the Pokémon at the end. What was the point of the raid then? Sure you get some stuff and exp- but the whole point was to get the Pokémon. It has gotten me so frustrated I have considered removing the game from my phone. It frustrates me constantly. It also favors highly populated areas, I live in a very rural area and the closest city is 2 hours away- it’s unfair to the people who put time and money into a game and don’t even have a chance at getting many Pokémon or any raids.

- PokemonGo has a big problem with step count rewards

I have been playing PG since 2016. It’s a great game in many ways. I especially appreciate the attention to getting players moving - increasing activity is so good for health - and it avoids the pitfall of most smartphone apps, which tend to incentivize sedentary behaviors. But recently they’ve started using language about “burning calories.” At the end of each week, the app pops up a notification that says “Congrats, you burned a ton of calories this week!” I have no idea why they would do this. First of all, it isn’t a weight loss or dieting app. Second of all, duh. You can lay in bed for a week straight and the human body will still burn about 13,000 calories. Calorie “burning” is a biological function that doesn’t need congratulated. Movement doesn’t increase it that dramatically, and increasing activity levels is laudable and healthy REGARDLESS of caloric effect. Thirdly, and most importantly, this kind of language is incredibly dangerous and triggering for those who are recovering from disordered eating and EDs. If the developers had consulted a medical or nutritional professional, they would know this. They are literally risking lives with this phrase. It would be very easy to correct. Do better, please. Also, minor, but when will we get alternate hairstyles? It’s so frustrating to be stuck with long hair just bc your avatar is female.

- Played since release.

Game used to be fun, then Niantic started enforcing their definition of what kind of fun you should be having with their game. I used hacks and location spoofing specifically because of Niantic shutting down any tracking program and the abomination they call trading Pokémon. The game location services gives errors more times than it loading properly. The game decides when you’re actually close enough to the stop/gym to spin for items. Instead of finding the Pokémon you wanted in an accessible public area, you’re forced to wander around potentially trespassing because being able to track isn’t fun to Niantic. When you trade Pokémon, all stats are randomly set so giving /receiving good stuff to/from your friends is fubar. Trading mechanics are completely random to the point that a good Pokémon immediately becomes trash to be transferred. Instead of putting in trading or switching teams to make the game somewhat enjoyable to play with friends or convince other people it’s not a waste of time, they hold events in cities that are only for the people willing to send them money and travel 500 to 2000 miles away. As well, that’s assuming that the real life events aren’t disasters like the first few events in Chicago. You’re doing good following Nintendo’s model of just adding in more busywork rather than doing anything groundbreaking, guys. You’re right in thinking people only want a mile wide but an inch deep.

- Buddy Pokémon

I honestly loved the idea of having the buddy Pokémon walk beside us because it’s adorable and allows us to make more of a connection towards our buddy Pokémon, but they need food too often. You give them 3 berries and then they’re full, you earn a heart, whatever, whatever, and then you go on a walk and a short amount of time later they’re hungry again. You gain a total amount of 3 hearts per day for feeding your buddy Pokémon so them being full should last for a while, but no it doesn’t. Every time I go on the app, my buddy Pokémon needs to be fed again. It becomes a chore instead of something fun and cute. You should either have it where it lasts for around 3 hours or have it where it will be hungry after a certain walking distance let’s say 1km or 2kms or do both where it will be hungry again after 3 hours or after 1 or 2 kms whichever comes first. Also my buddy (larvitar) gets left behind which is both adorable and annoying. He always does catch up though, but somethings I think that he’s hungry, but no he’s just completely off the screen chilling. [ side note: I love how Larvitar runs. ] The last thing that annoys me about the buddy Pokémon is you can’t tell them apart from wild Pokémon. They should have a coloured (perhaps your team colour) ring around them or something so you have tell the difference. In any case, I love the addition of buddy Pokémon. I wasn’t expecting it at all, it was a lovely surprise.

- Great but Improvements need to be Made

Overall the game has really improved since it’s release in 2016. Introducing trading Pokémon has helped me a lot and being able to make friends really improves the experience and expresses the aim of Pokémon Go; to make friends in the community. Some improvements that would improve the game for me and many others would be the ability to trade and/or sell items. I have evolved all the Pokémon that require the Dragon Scale and Metal Coat and still have about 10 of each left and I don’t know what to do with them. I feel like deleting them is wasting them since when they first came out I tried hard to get them. Another benefit of trading items is that items like Dragon Scale, Kings Rock and Metal Coat are fairly harder to obtain than when they were first released, so allowing item trading would mean that trainers that have been playing for a long time (e.g. since 2016) would be able to help trainers that have just started and need these items. Another improvement that would improve the game would be the ability to message your friends within the game. Bringing in this feature would mean that Ultra and Best friends would be able to organise remote battles without having to get their contact details and message them over Skype or Messages.

- Unnecessarily strict security

I became locked out of my account due to closing my old email account (I didn’t realise that was what I was logged in through, so my fault). I contacted support to help transfer my account to a new email, and I thought they were being helpful until I received 11 security questions to answer. Never have I had to answer 11 security questions, and for a game? Why on earth is there such tight security around a game? I answered them, however there were 4 I could not answer, which were very specific questions, such as “what was the last achievement you received in the game and what month did you achieve it?”. The whole reason I’m locked out is that’s it’s been so long, otherwise I’d just log back into my email, but it’s permanently gone now. How am I supposed to remember that? Yet I provided evidence that I am the owner of my Apple ID, a tax invoice of the last purchase I made through the game, the exact date I created my account and a bunch of other more valuable security questions. But because I cannot remember minuscule details from the last time I played the game, I am not able to retrieve my account. I’m not trying to log into my bank, I’m trying to log into a game! The security questions are ridiculous. Please change them and allow me access to my account.

- 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.

- Some areas been having trouble with Newtown park

Hi there, 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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

- Amazing but do this!

This game has been holding strong ever since the release of the game in 2016. They have added a lot of new and improved stuff into the game since launch. Such as battles, weather, friends, new Pokémon, team go rocket and heaps more. But here are some of the things I wish you guys could add into the game not only me but a lot of people would enjoy having in the game. 1. Update the streets and the poke stop pictures. New roads have been built around my suburb and poke stops don’t have the same picture as what the building or playground is currently looking atm. 2. Add teams/clans. I would love to make a clan with my friends also having a group chat text box in it. Would also be awesome if you could view your friends Pokédex and see what they have caught. 3. Global chat. Imagine a global chat which you can invite random people to your clan/team and also invite them as a friend and send gifts to them eventually. 4. You should add a world map and make the places you have visited around the world highlighted showing what Pokémon you have caught in this region or part in the world. 5. Increase the level gap! 6. You should also make Pokémon mini games that you can unlock by playing the game making it less boring to play Pokémon go if there is nothing to do at home or elsewhere. 7. Make more clothing you can also add clothing that has different effects such as lightning, fire or different effects that make your style look awesome.

- 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.

- From fun to frustrating fast.

The problem with Pokémon Go is that it starts off really fun and then after a few weeks it quickly gets frustrating and boring. You stop discovering new types and just catch the same old Pokémon over and over. You complete the research tasks or get close to finishing them but get stuck on extremely tedious tasks like evolving a magikarp which requires you to collect 400 candy for a Pokémon that rarely appears. The PVP competition is confusing as is the Pokémon appraisal system. The game is structured in a way that tries to force you to spend money in game. The game constantly glitches and freezes resulting in you losing things like remote raid passes halfway through a raid with no way of recovering them or the Pokémon you were attempting to defeat and catch. This is exceptionally annoying as it’s takes a lot of time or for you to pay money to obtain remote raid passes. You can’t communicate with friends in app which makes coordinating raids a nightmare. A lot more work has to be done to improve the stability of this app and make the game more engaging if Niantic wants to retain players long term.

- 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.

- 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!

- Needs more battle interaction

This is a great game, it gets me to go out to catch Pokémon and I love the idea of it. The only thing I don’t like is the fact that when you battle you only have to tap the screen. If you could give maybe 3 moves to each Pokémon and each did different damage and required a different amount of energy. Energy could be gained every time you attack. Anyway this would improve the game greatly and encourage people to battle more often. I also think you must improve how we can interact and make friends, i think there should be a message option so you can chat with friends, this would be great because it would increase interaction with friends. You should also add an option to friend people you battle or people who put Pokémon in gyms. This would allow me to trade and have fun with people who liver near you. Thanks

- 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.

- 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

- 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 Marilyn Guse Sorry to be so miserable but I like the game and I hate to see it fail so badly

- 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.

- 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..

- 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.)

- 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 :) .

- 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

- 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.

- 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

- 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.

- 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.

- 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?

- 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.

- 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 Thanks again Daniel

- 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.

- 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

- 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.

- 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

- 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.

- 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. 💔

- good concept, poor execution. don’t expect much

The two biggest problems in my opinion are: 1) Stability 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... 2) Gyms 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...)

- 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

- 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! 🤩

- 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

- 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

- Greed is ruining POGO

This game has been around since 2016, you would expect it to be incredibly polished by now, but it isn’t. That’s just the tip of the iceberg though, for example say you buy some raid passes to raid with friends, the game can glitch out and boot you from the raid. You lose your pass and the chance to catch the elite Pokémon, you might get one pass returned to you if you contact support, but that’s it, even though this problem is common you won’t get any more refunds and are possibly gambling money away. You can essentially be taxed for the technical faults of the game. Now there are nerfs to earning the in-game currency, in Australia at least. You could earn coins daily by holding gyms long enough, it was fair and rewarded players who kept going out and playing the game. Now they’re trying to make it harder and more tedious to earn coins for free, to encourage people to buy coins with real money.

- 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.

- Still Fun

It’s Still such a Fun game with Updates making even better. The Team Go Rocket Addition was very good but I think they should be could Team Shadow Rocket. Also them adding Unova Pokémon Was Good to now there are lots more Pokémon For my Father to discover who recently got into Pokémon Go and it’s made me get a lot closer to him. The only Bad thing I would say is that you can’t Change your Hair Style. They have added so much like more close and Poses but still no different hair Styles? It would definitely change the game a lot for me. It’s very sad that Not very many people play this game anymore but there is still a good amount of people to keep up a Gym Cycle and I love it. Keep it Up👍👍👍

- Good game but...

So this game is fun and if u like Pokémon and taking walks outside then I strongly recommend this game to you. Also I have a suggestion that I know many many people want in the game, and that suggestion is that in the thing where you check the nearby raids and Pokémon, I suggest you put some sort of indicator next to each nearby raid so people can see how many people are currently queuing up for a raid so that that way you don’t have to check how many people are queuing up for a raid by tapping on a raid because in my opinion that is too time consuming and this suggestion would make it much easier and I know a lot of people also want this in the game.

- Review

I think it’s a pretty good game. At first it was absolutely annoying because the servers weren’t working very well and when sometimes when you would click on a pokestop, gym or Pokémon it wouldn’t load up or it would say error, the gyms were nearly impossible to beat, there was just a lot to fix but now the game has improved a lot! Servers are running perfectly, more items have been added, it’s easier to defeat gyms you, there’s been a lot of Pokémon and features added to the game. So I would highly recommend playing this game because I absolutely love it because I’m getting outside more (which is rare for me) and it’s just a lot of fun!

- Legendary questions

Dear developers who created Pokémon go I would like to say that this is the best game I’ve played so far in my life. However their is something I’d like to confront ik you can get legendaries from raids and research break through but I realised a couple days ago that you can get 1 legendary per week and every week it is different but that’s where a complaint comes in what if you just make it random for ANY Legendary to spawn inside the legendary raid egg like now it’s only Zapdos but what if not him only but any legendary like maybe reshiram,Diagla, and also groudon and so on so please ASAP please make it any legendary from the legendary egg raids just random ty and please do this QUICKLY!

- Pokemon Go seriously need to fix This please

I love playing Pokemon go I play it everyone for a long time, at first the game worked perfectly no issues but now for me and for some other people who play this game it lags and kicks you off the game, when battling a friend and you send them an invite and they join and you both press ready to battle it won't start the battle. For me when feeding or trying to take a photo of my buddy it glitches out of the game and IK don't understand why. The game was working perfectly about a week ago but now it's lagging and glitching even when I walk 1 km it would come up as 0.01 or not even register. I use Apple but it's also Samsung some Samsung users who are having a problem with Pokemon Can you try and fix this please 🙏

- 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

- 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.

- 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!!


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

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- Fix ur gps

Wild ninetails on the nearby but since ur gps is incompetant i couldnt get it.

- Good

Pokemon gotta catch em all

- 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!

- 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.

- Awesome ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Love the game pushes me to go out side in self isolation ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

- New update keeps shutting app

Since the update yesterday, we’ve haven’t been able to play. Please fix, thank you

- 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

- IOS 14 Public Beta

IOS 14 Public Beta 2 no supported

- Pokècoins

The pokècoins never work I can’t buy anything or else I see an infinite loading sequence please fix this

- 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.

- Purchase problems

Please update. There is a problem with buying the team madallian. We cannot purchase. Also drops the app often. But would love to play with my family

- Crashinngggggg again

Oh my god...this game has started crashing every other time when i am in a raid battle.

- Great game

Got me walking more But how much every thing in the shop is is rediculus especially the team medallion, it’s also dumb how you could only get 50 pokey coin today

- 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.

- 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

- Amazing

Game works amazing. All the new features like trading and battling are perfect. Love all the new features that keep getting added.

- Latest update

Why am I only getting a black screen when I open Pokemon Go after this latest update???

- No update

The game will not let me play cuz I need to update it but when I go to the store to update it will not even show me that there is an update I tried to reinstall it but still won’t update and so now I can never play it again and I have spent over 100$ on it so I hope they fix the problem or else I will loos 100$ on a game I just got started playing

- Annoying

When you transfer a Pokémon, don’t send us back to the top of the list it’s really annoying when you need to transfer MULTIPLE Pokémon but you keep getting sent back to the top and you have to keep finding the ones you want t I transfer again

- Friend

6886 3770 2725 friend

- Breakthroughs???

What the heck happened to the weakly research breakthrough you used to get legendarys every time which was awesome but now I get Bugs and raichus? Not rewarding at all or At least make the rewards more rewarding like getting rarer Pokémon like (riolu,Rhydon,Dragonair,Pupitar,Slakoth) and not this garbage!

- Great game

We love this game and have played it since day one. I am writing this review in hopes that my request will be seen. I think it would be much easier to find and collect the Pokémon if you could stack them in your storage. It is such a pain to have to scroll through the entire deck searching to find what you are looking for. I know that you can type in what you are want to see but searching through 25 event pikachu to find a certain one is a pain


Arrgh! This is 3 bloody times now I've ended up with a new attack on a poke I DIDNT want to have one. I go to close a freaking poke info screen and it purchases a freaking new attack instead because the 'X' close is right on top of the damn "New Attack" button and I'm working fast. Seriously? There's no way I'm the only one having this issue. And that's hundreds of hard earned dust wasted now on attacks for inferior pokes. Urrrrgh. Move the F*CKN new attack button, guys!!!!! Or at least offer an undo for crying out loud. What a lousy way to end a session.

- Why when battling it doesn’t use my charged when I press it

How can’t you just make it so when I press my charged attack it doesn’t do it for like 10 seconds it’s getting annoying please fix your game

- Raiding Mega Pokémon Bug

PLEASE FIX THIS BUG SOON! Just now me and my friends joined a Mega Gengar remote raid in Burnaby, B.C. Canafa, after our pokémon fainted and the time wasn't even over yet we all got dropped out of the raid and couldn't find it, so basically the raid not only dropped us out after our pokémon fainted but could not be found and ate up our remote raid passes!

- Robbed

I payed money to get Raid passes and my game crashed I lost all the stuff I bought and lost the money

- Game quality decline

This could be a great game by Niantic refuses to fix anything and does not value long term players. It used to be amazing. They are ruining Pokémon Go one update at a time.

- Please fix

Your game crashed as I beat a raid and lost the Pokémon

- waste

waste my raid pass

- Very poor customer service

I have had this issue in the past as well. I bought storage in exchange of coins, lost coins and the storage doesn't show. So can't even play. Such a waste.

- Niantic is not the right developer for Pokémon games. Bring this back to Nintendo please.

Niantic is great at making this game unplayable and/or unenjoyable for a good number of players.

- 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

- Good game also add me

Overall good game. Wish it was easier to do things an had an offline version tho. Add my trainer code 6432 8032 6201

- iOS 14

The only reason I’m only giving this a 4 star is because I love this game but once my phone got iOS 14 the app won’t open. Please fix !!

- Love it but

Love Pokemon and go is no different but lately it just crashes right after opening the app. Please fix it.

- Good

Pretty good but needs more pokestops

- No tracking

Niantic is removing bonuses originally put in place due to the pandemic during the pandemic to artificially increase the labour in the game to increase it’s profit margins. They have also mishandled mega evolutions, turning them into 4-hour power hats that you rent, requiring the purchase of raid passes to fuel them at a reasonable pace.

- Okay but

They need to make it an offline game because I don’t have data so I can not play

- Help

Fix the snapshot with buddy’s please not able to get a heart with my buddy while snapshotting it

- I really love this game but I think it could use some features

I genuinely love Pokémon Go. I have stuck with it since it came out. There are some things I think would be cool to add. Trading Pokémon would be great but I understand why they haven’t released it yet. There is no defeating the game or beating a final boss or anything there is just filling your Pokédex, which with trading would then be too easy. I feel like you should be able to see other players in game their like avatars I don’t see why battling other trainers in the game would be a bad feature to add I think it would be fun. Also in the other Pokémon games there were healing stations, I get we have revives and pokestops but I have found it very hard to get enough to actually do battles. I have to say rural areas should have more pokestops and more accessible Pokémon. When the game first came out I lived 7 miles from the nearest pokestop. I have to get a ride into the small town near my where I lived and even then there were like 5 pokestops throughout the town. Maybe a way to message other players would be nice because I only know like 4 people near me interested in playing this game so if I could like message people and tell them I’m going to this raid battle come join that would be cool.

- PvP is so unbalanced it's not even funny

The base game is fun enough for a while, but once you've collected a couple dozen or even hundred of every Pokemon you have even the slightest interest in the only thing left it PvP, and oh man would it be better for my blood pressure if that just wasn't in the game. Almost every single team you're going to face is nearly identical and practically unbeatable unless you have a slightly better version of that same team or a perfect counter. You're going to lose to Giritina. You're going to lose to it a lot. It's stupidly powerful and everyone uses it. If you change your team to counter Giritina you will stop being matched with people who use Giritina. I'm 80 battles into the current league and 60 (I started keeping track after five in a row) of the teams I've fought had a Giritina. The remaining twenty battles were when I tried to just have a counter to Giritina, alternating between Umbreon and Darkrai depending on what I felt like using more. And every one of those twenty battles with a dark type on my team, not a single person I fought had a Giritina. I switched back to my usual team when I got absolutely fed up with this and was immediately bodied by the 60th Giritina. This isn't even taking bots and exploiters into account, both of which are frustratingly common and not worth talking about, it's just like you'd expect.

- Love this game. A few recommendations

I love this game, I think it’s really fun and it was complicated at first, but now that I’ve been playing for a while (not even that long), and with the help of my mom an brother we’ve been able to figure it out. The only thing I have to say is about the avatar customizing. And it’s mostly on the hair. Ok it’s all about the hair. There aren’t that many colors to chose from, I mean I guess there’s enough for you to get a color close to yours (if you want your avatar to look like you of course). Like if you’re a red head and have more orangey hair the closest you get is a red that you can only get by dyeing your hair. Another part is the hairstyles. All there is, is medium length hair up in a ponytail. I mean it’s pretty accurate to my hair but not every girl has that length of hair and wears it up like that. I have a friend who has a pixie cut. I have a friend who has hair almost up to her chin. What about girls with curly hair? All they get is somewhat wavy hair put up in a ponytail. I know this is a long thing just about the hair, and I don’t even know what it’s like for the guys. Anyways. Sorry for this long thing about hair, but thought I should say something. Still love the game!

- The game is amazing but could be better

Pokémon go has come a long way for what it was at first I don’t know absolutely everyone else but at first I dreaded updates because they always found a way to take away the fun of the game but it did make it “safer” I suppose. How ever with the recent updates Pokémon go has found a way to keep people coming back and even more excited about the game there are still ways I believe they could make the game even better though. Like ever Pokémon player loves a safari zone but we also like to battle wild Pokémon to help catch them. Why waist so many poke ball to lose the Pokémon in the end when you can battle them to make it easier like in the game. also it would be a way to further expand the buddy system they could not only gather EXP to raise there CP but could also be a way to gather candy for there buddy or battling Pokémon. Then people would have a better chance when having to face raid battles alone. A there would no longer be people opening there game and say oh I already have all of that then close the app. Instead they would open the game battle the surrounding Pokémon and make something out of it. It’s just the little things that make a game go so far.

- Still does not feel like the other Pokémon games

I find myself on this game at least once every day. And sometimes it’s just to listen to the soundtrack. Despite how much I like this game overall, we could still use some tweaks to make it feel more like the other DS Pokémon games. For one, even though there are no longer pokemarts, I miss greeting nurses every time I walk in. I suggest having nurses at pokestops. Another thing would be the map. The map can be very inaccurate (especially in rural areas). Also the map is pretty boring. I’m not expecting any 3D visuals because I know that it would be hard to see pokestops with all that. Maybe at the least there could be more detailed grass and roads, with trees, bushes, and fields or gardens. The last thing I would like to mention is our characters appearance on the map. It would be really nice if our character was smaller because it looks way out of proportion compared to the road. Lastly the run is really annoying because it never runs the whole time but instead it takes short breaks, so it’s switching from running to walking every 5 seconds. The run is not very attractive at all. Also you should consider adding an option to Naruto run. Everyone would like that. Thanks for taking time out of your day to read this.

- Niantic choosing fight against cheaters over legit players

With my account nearing 2 years of age, which will happen on the 7th of July, I have been waiting for trading since launch, and I have to say I’m disappointed, the IV reroll destroys any want for me to trade with my friends, I don’t have any interest in spending the stardust for a Pokémon I would otherwise transfer if I caught. Though I understand that it keeps cheaters and spoofers from acquiring perfect Accounts that much faster I believe it really screws the people that have been playing for 2 years now. Having played for two years, my Pokédex is pretty much full aside from regional exclusives and I looked forward to this as being an ability to fill these holes in my Pokédex with people I raid with a couple of times a week, knowing this is going to cost a million stardust, or make me wait 90 day’s for it to drop to a reasonable cost, has completely deterred me from trading all together. At the very least I would like to see the IV reroll be taken away. People are going to cheat, there’s no way around it, but I should be able to trade the High IV Pokemon that would make a much bigger impact on my friends teams then they would on mine .

- Best Game Out There

Let me say it to everyone straight, this game is hands down, the best game out there. I see like 50 negative reviews. People saying it’s “paywalled”, no. The only things that are actually paywalled are things like safari and 1 other thing. You can already make like 400 coins a week if you really “need” things from the item shop or for safari zone. You can make good coins just by doing gym battles + even if you need more backpack space or something, just delete duplicates. Raid passes can just be given by coming back on everyday and going to the specific raid. Now I still see people who think it’s paywalled, it’s not. Like I said, fight in gyms. You need potions or poke balls? Just go to poke stops. You really don’t need to spend money unless you really want good coins. And listen, don’t get angry if you don’t have enough space or strong pokemon. I have seen enough reviews about people losing raids and “never” getting a specific Pokémon again. I almost beat a raquayza, but I lost. You know, 23 minutes later, I find another raquayza. This game should not take hate. It’s a good game people. Thank you niantic. You really are the best at game developers ever. :)

- App is fine. Niantic is bad

Long story short I had to delete the email attached to my Pokémon go account due to it being compromised. I spent a whole day switching over accounts but I had forgotten about Pokémon go. Of course since the email no longer exists I’m unable to sign in, so I contacted Niantic about it. I got an email where I had to answer a series of questions about my account like the last achievement I had unlocked or my last in app purchase. I hadn’t played in months because I have limited to no time while university is in session so I regularly play during breaks. So you can imagine the difficulty I had in answering questions about game progress made over six months ago. I was given two tries to get 11 questions like this right (all of them, in fact, you have to get right or they don’t help you and I got most of them right in the first place) and of course I couldn’t, so now I lost my account that I had since the game’s release. It’s really telling that a player who has been with the game since the beginning just gets tossed to the side like it’s nothing. The game is awesome but niantic has by far the worst customer service/assistance I have ever seen in a company. To think all of this could have been solved by having a couple of security questions like literally any competent website has. I will never play another Niantic game again because of this experience

- Great updates, but something’s really bugging me

I LOVE what you’ve done to improve the game, with friends and raids and research and everything! One thing I’m bothered by, though, is the gym/coin system. I understand needing to put a cap on how much coin can be earned from having a Pokémon in a gym, but a 50 limit per day across the board seems stilted. For example, I had a Pokémon in a gym for a little while (a day or so), and when she came home she brought 50 coins. Awesome! But then, that same day, another Pokémon from a different gym came home - one who’d been at the gym for four days - and didn’t bring anything, because I’d already reached my daily 50-coin max. I just feel like the system could be improved - maybe keep the coin-every-ten-minutes but move the 50-coin cap to be per day each Pokémon is gone? So, if a Pokémon is only gone 20 minutes he brings home 2 coins, but if he’s gone for 2 days he brings home 100, regardless of what any other Pokémon brought home that day? Just a thought. But my four-days-missed Pokémon bringing home nothing was really a bummer, and I don’t feel incentivized to keep my Pokémon in gyms for very long, with the system working the way it does....

- Sweet game I enjoy it so far

I have been playing Pokémon Go for 18 yrs now and I have to say i'm very impressed by what I am able to do with no interference at all what so ever the only thing I would like to see tho in trainer battles is the option to do tag team battles with friends and against a certain team go rocket leader cause there r certain quests that sometimes require u to defeat a certain amount of grunts or a certain number of leader/s or to catch one shadow Pokémon etc etc and so on and so fourth I would also really appreciate it if u guys would add a feature where after u open a gift u can swipe across em to see what all u got and then be able to select items u don’t really need say if u already have that item u can give to another friend who may be in need of it!! But overall I totally dig this game and spend a lot of time with a few friends goin around trying to catch as many Pokémon as we possibly can old or new so we can either get candy outta of it or use that candy to power up our Pokémon and that makes them stronger in raids 😎🔥🦾🐺 I hope u guys take my suggestions into consideration if u have time thx 😉☺️. ThunderBird1728 have a good day.

- Glitches and Overachievement, yet Fun

Now, before I get too far in the review, I will say I like the game. It makes me want to go outside and exercise. But parts of the game are broken. Like how I put 3 Pokémon in a gym, yet when they fainted (they were in there for 24+ hours), I was off the app and it gave me no coins. I was frustrated, and those gyms are far away from me, so after a long walk (I do it everyday,) I was drained. Another glitch is when Pokémon simply don’t get caught, and it is constantly in the ball, not loading me to the catch stats screen. As an avid 4-year fan, these glitches are getting more frequent, causing some dissatisfaction. And the challenges to maybe, just maybe, catch a rare Pokémon. And I still haven’t even finished the Mew challenges. The FIRST challenge series. Raids aren’t easy at all and in one challenge, I have to win 10. Those Ditto challenges though...those are so hard to do. What do raid Pokémon even do? But on the plus side, the game offers loads of things to do and there are many events to boost chances of some Pokémon appearing. All and all I wanted to report some glitches and things that need balancing. EDIT: Found out there was a 50 coin limit per day. Again, needs to be fixed. This is especially annoying when you’re low on supplies.

- Great game, but I have a suggestion...

I love this game, but there is one thing I would appreciate if added. Me and my cousin have been playing this game together for about 2 years. We have made it a tradition for us to play this game during summer after we get out of school ever since we discovered it. We conquer gyms together, send gifts to each other every day, and catch Pokémon at the same time. We also spin pokestops, but most of the time we get an item that the other person needs. So, what we would like to suggest is to have the ability to trade items. We would love this, because battling gyms takes a lot of potions and catching Pokémon, especially flying Pokémon, takes a lot of pokéballs, and we might need to trade in order to Catch Pokémon or revive them after we battle in gyms. I think this could be a feature that everyone would enjoy with friends. I really enjoy the feature that allows you to trade Pokémon with a friend, but I think this would be another great aspect to add to the game, even if you have to be great friends or ultra friends to access this feature. Thank you for your time and this has been a pleasure to play this wonderful game.

- Great game

As far as this game could had gone, it did pretty well for itself. Niantic had some issues at the beginning, but up to now it seems that most of those issues have been solved. And about the rural players.I feel you, I live in a small town too. But there’s still a way to play the game. All you have to do is participate in community days or other big events that get players playing. You can even get some of your friends to play, making your own squad to take down those tough raids. I play with 9 of my friends and it seems to be working pretty well. Anyway, great game, loving the events, etc. the only problem that I can think of is the spoofing issue. TweakBox, tutu app and other apps are coming out with the latest spoofing hacks and Niantic seems to be falling a step behind. I hate the idea of spoofing because players like me who have been playing the game since day one now have to compete with spoofers who can grab a bunch of Pokémon and legendaries overnight. I’d like this issue to finally be solved soon, but if it can’t oh well I guess. Aside from that this game is a game that I’ll have for a looooooooong time. Keep up the great work Niantic!😁👌

- Obsessed but not quite impressed...

I love this game and cannot stop playing it... until it won’t work. I know every game has its bug and that they get fixed but when you fix one bug, please try not to add another. I hadn’t got the new update the other night and tried to get on because my egg was ready to hatch but it would work. I would click on the game and it would come up with the loading screen and the little bar at the bottom would go across the screen but then when the screen changed colour and had the spinning pokeball on top to load it would close itself out and go to the home screen on my phone. So I would try it again... and again... and again... and yet again until I finally gave up. Tried it AGAIN last night but the same thing happened. Gave up after a few dozen tries and came back this morning. Finally thought about it being an update that I needed. Downloaded the update and went to play my game and it STILL won’t load. I really don’t want to delete this game because I am totally addicted to it but if I can’t play it then I have no need for it to take space on my phone... this is a fun game that I love. I just want it fixed so I can keep it

- Best mobile game in history

Pokémon Go is a fantastic mobile game that models the Pokémon franchise that is Pokémon. The Pokémon and art in the game are one-hundred percent the originals and nothing looks off from previous Pokémon games. The game is completely legit. When I think of a Pokémon Game this the one that’s first in mind. If you where ever a fan of Pokémon like I am then you must agree that Pokémon Go is pretty close to being perfect and still has room to improve. By being a mobile game the game the app has to update in time and there is huge changes with the game since the day it started back in 2016. I give the game 5 starts for all the hard work that has been put forth to improve the game. It honestly is the best MOBILE game there is. You can take your device anywhere and now there is meaning why during the gameplay. You can meat people and learn about Pokémon in a way that I couldn’t before with the original game boy games I have grew up on. It’s Fantastic. The developers listen and reason with everybody they will explain why they do something the way they do. Niantic is a great developer and glad they took on the world of Pokémon with there Pokémon Go. Keep it up Niantic

- Great but bugs are driving me away

First off this game is great and I love the games and the franchise but it’s starting to be buggy and after this game high out for about 3 years I expect to see not many bugs and if I do not ones that take away my items. I do raids with people on Discord and and when we into the raid I CAN’T ATTACK and when your the only one who can’t attack and everyone else is fighting your gonna be kicked out next time and your gonna lose the item you use to get there to do the raid! As I’m writing this I was just fighting Mega Gengar who is my favorite Pokémon and I have a shiny gastly(although no being good) and love the shiny mega form but it just sat me there doing nothing and I lost an Raid pass that I was saving for so long to find a Gengar raid and then I can’t attack and then it kicked me and the worst part is I can use special attacks if I get them during the fight but right after and sometimes it just happens I can’t look around on the menu screen but I can click other things but this just driving me away and I just spent money on this game and still want to leave because of this bug if this can’t be fixed in the next month or so I’m leaving Pokémon go and possibly forever!

- Great game, but a few small complaints...

This game is absolutely amazing! I love to go out with my friends and play. The game works so well and it is always a blast to get outside and play. The only complaints I have are about the raid system. I live in a suburban area, where it is much harder to sometimes get pokecoins from the limited gyms and usually raids don’t spawn. If a raid does spawn though, not a lot of people that I live with play, making it very hard to take down high-level raids. However, I can understand that these problems aren’t really fixable. The main complaint I have is losing a raid Pokémon even after beating the raid. For example, last week I took down a Zekrom raid. I was so excited to catch myself this legendary... until it broke out of every ball and ran away. I feel that if I invest the pokecoins, items, and time into getting a rare raid Pokémon, I shouldn’t have to leave it up to RNG if I even receive the Pokémon. I feel that if you beat a raid, you should be awarded with the Pokémon, and shouldn’t be able to lose it. Imagine losing a rare shiny because of RNG. That would just be heartbreaking. This game is great, and if these tiny tweaks were made, I feel as if the game would be perfect.

- Good but...

I’ve been playing since the release and did drop off after a few months like most people due to the lack of things to do or catch until future releases. I’ve been daily playing again for about 3 months and I’m impressed with all the additions and of course the variety of Pokémon to catch now. My only complaints and reason it’s not 5 stars for me are I agree with other reviewers that there needs to be a way to add pokestops and update current ones. And also the Pokémon generator is messed up where I live, at my old house (which was in a subdivision on the edge of town) there were loads of Pokémon wandering the streets, at my sister’s house (which is out in the middle of nowhere) there are still several at any given time although not the variety that are in town, at my new house (which is literally a block off of Main Street) there are none! None! Not a single Pokémon EVER! But if I walk over 1 block there are loads. And even on the other side of main there are Pokémon (although not many) it would be nice to be able to walk on my actual street since I live in the center of town but my street is Pokémon free sadly. There needs to be a way to report bugs like this in the app.

- Pokémon Battles are an Absolute Disgrace

This game has the absolute worst battle system of any game ever created. It brings shame to the entire Pokémon brand. Battles are mindlessly frustrating tap fest with unbalanced and some downright game breaking attacks, dominated by legendary Pokémon that are incredibly difficult to obtain and, suffers from horrendous lag no matter what your internet connection is turning sure wins into losses. Charged attacks can be spammed within seconds doing more damage than you can hope to endure while your charge bar is not even a quarter full. Not very effective attacks pretty much always halve your health and Psystrike is is usually a OHKO to everything no matter what. Some fast attacks do a pittance of damage and attack extremely slowly while others move faster than you can blink and kill you before you can even switch. Type effectiveness the core mechanic of the games, is essentially non existent with psychic types obliterating dark types before they can act and ghost types being swept by a barrage of normal type attacks. This Battle system is the absolute worst and even if the devs addressed all of these issues it’d still be the worst by hundreds of miles. Give us real battles with strategy and fun, not a boring taping game with no balance or logic to its play.

- Good game, bad raids.

The game is honestly amazing, aside from the occasional glitch, but the raids are where that is different. The new remote raid passes have had several glitches as I have used them. The exact problem is that it works once and then when you go to try and beat the raid boss again, because you lost the first time, you can run into the problem of it kicking you out of the raid and saying, “walk closer to interact with this gym”. Another big problem with raids is related to the number of people they recommend is completely wrong. With the recent Darkrai, for example, they recommended 2 level 40 people or 3-4 level 30 people. We were able to take it down twice, but that was with 11 people all at or around 30-40 in level. While we probably could have done it with 8 people, we felt it necessary to have 11 as we had fought multiple times against a Darkrai with only 6 people, and 2-3 of those people were level 40. We lost multiple times due to glitching with the raid passes and the fact that Darkrai had so much health that we couldn’t deal enough damage to him that we couldn’t win. This is not to be an angry rant, but I hope that this issue is fixed.

- Very fun but has bad balancing issues

My main gripe with Pokémon go is the bad battling issues. The first issue is not being able to attack sometimes after using a battle pass. Even if you tap the screen it doesn’t attack wasting a battle pass battle. The second is the balancing issues in the battle leagues. 1500cp is over run by Altaria, Azumarill, and Umbreon and even if you have a great type match up you will still have a hard time winning because they are so strong. It puts off battling because you pretty much have to use the same party as everyone else ruining the fun. There’s similar issues with the 2500 league. You can have a 3* perfect match up and because of the opposing Pokémon you can still lose. Also, attacks shouldn’t cause status effects if they are blocked. Looking at you power up punch and acid spray. Why is my defense being lowered if I block it in the case of acid spray not to mention it’s a fast charge all but insuring you get a bunch of defense drops even after using your shields. These are two examples but there’s a lot of attacks that do this. I love battling in the 1-6 ranks because there’s a variety of Pokémon but as soon as you hit level 7 it’s always the same Pokémon no matter what CP league. It really puts off a huge part of the game.

- The worst update for players

I loved this game when it first came out and as I kept playing I got more and more into Pokémon then before I played. Even through gyms and having your own Pokémon there and some allies was really cool. But now it’s absolutely terrible that you have to constantly feed and monitor your Pokémon and for some silly reason if you put in a high cp Pokémon he loses his health more quickly! This new update is just really unfair and the update makes it so you have really low health Pokémon just so someone can use all there high cp Pokémon that can easily wipe out yours instantly. Believe it or not in the early stages of Pokémon go with gyms they were actually really well balanced and far having it so only a number of players are in the gym and people can use their high Pokémon to fight them and possibly kick them out. This is just a really bad update that was made and I hope it can change it was Actually fine in the past and probably the only players who would say that it was difficult and over powered was players with low Pokémon and just complaining about Other players having higher Pokémon. I personally hope it is changed but I am having really high hopes for the red rocket update and am really excited. But please change the gym update.

- Sound design and quality

i love the game and the gameplay can’t really get any better than it already is, however there is one glaring issue with the game. it has a few sound design issues. the sound effects that come out of my iPhone XS are so low resolution, it sounds like a Nintendo DS Lite. Every time i click a menu button there is an awful sound that sounds fuzzy, distant, and grainy. the game would be top notch if they simply added that. the music doesn't have the same problem, so why do sound effects which are equally (if not more important) hinder the experience of the game? i do have an issue with the music. why is it still this generic Pokémon GO song? why not remix some old route themes from all the different generations of Pokémon with Pokémon GO instruments? imagine running around your neighborhood catching Pokémon with a remix of route 209 from Sinnoh? that’d be so great, and its been 2 years and i’ve heard people argue for this in the past. I just cant justify five stars when the sound design is so effortless, and its been like that since launch. if they revamped the quality of sound effects this game would be perfect, i dont even need the music. fix those grainy sound effects!!!

- Great game Few cons tho

This is a great game. but the spawning of pokémon are lacking a bit. the insense are good but i have timed the pokémon and for a 30 min span it’s to far apart atleast out of 30 mins you should spawn 5 pokémon. another spawn problem is that there are so few pokémon to begin with. i say commons should be around a lot but nothing really around at all. another thing is as i quested to get a ditto i have realized that excellent is almost impossible. the ring size i have gotten to and still only get great is insane i have gotten where the ring is a fourth of the size of the ball and still only great. this should be fixed. i can not complete mission if i can get excellent. i have not seen many that have gotten this this pokémon with out the switchbeing involved in it. another thing is you should open the ring up to a bigger area for people to see more so they do not have to go into a home or hospital. this can make things fun for the fact the farther you are on the circle the farther the pokémon is away could me things fun and you could add a new medal for this. i hope the company sees this and will help out all of the trainers with this issue.

- Do you WANT dedicated players gone?

The past month or so has been a giant crap-fest of screwing over the main consumers of the game. Like, sure, spend three months putting the legendary birds in raids with a shiny chance, let your players spend $20+ on raid passes under the impression that they'll never have a shot at one in at least the next year, and then at the end of all of it release all three for a month as a "bonus" to nullify their efforts and bank account emptying. Not only that; spend over a YEAR watching people rush from their homes to complete raids at ex-eligible gyms for a shot at getting an ex-raid pass, only to release mewtwo for everyone? I just took a 3 hour long trip to nashville yesterday to complete an ex-raid because they were really that rare. Now apparently in a few weeks they're going to start spawning everywhere. And don't even get me started on lucky pokemon. Everyone that's actually into the game traded all of their old pokemon off for a higher lucky chance immediately. And everyone that didn't, already received 10 luckies and missed their chance at guaranteed luckies permanently. It almost feels like a reward for those who broke the rules and made multiple accounts; because who else is going to trade someone a guaranteed lucky valuable pokemon in exchange for a 10 cp bulbasaur from 2016?

- Please Change the Candy System

I have been playing this game since it’s release three years ago and love every second of it. My only gripe is the candy system in the game is ridiculous. It takes an immeasurable amount of time or luck just to get enough candies of a specific Pokémon to ‘level it up’ and eventually evolve it. My recommendation (or you could call it my hope) is that instead of specific Pokémon, the candies should be based on types. Take Bulbasaur for example. Upon catching him, you would gain a specific (randomized) number of Grass and Poison type candies. Then, in order to ‘level it up’, you need an equal number of both candy types to increase its CP. In order to evolve other Pokémon, you would need an equal amount of candies that correspond to the evolution’s type. Take Charmeleon for example. In order to evolve it to a Charizard (right now) you need several Charmander candies. With this system, you would need 25-30 each of Fire and Flying type candies as these are the types for Charizard. Obviously this is just my personal preference because I live on the east coast of the United States and rarely find enough of any Fire type Pokémon in order to evolve anything I currently have.

- For Niantic

I know this will only be read by people who obviously had Pokémon go. Honestly, who didn’t? It was the biggest thing in 2016 and everyone who wasn’t playing was on another world. The thing that I want to point out to niantic is that their customer service is horrible. Literally the worst in the business. I feel bad for them because their game had so much potential. It was bringing Pokémon to the ACTUAL world. Now the only thing that they can say they properly did was help kids get jumped at parks at 3 in the morning. Sadly, the game hasn’t changed much in the past 4 years and the only real things that changed is the grind to get just one shiny to be proud about. I expect nothing to change. I tried to help Niantic with creative ideas for the past 4 years and none of them have come to fruition. You still can’t even battle strangers! That’s like THE ONLY thing you do in Pokémon! It’s crazy how poorly they have delivered. To sum it up, I would just like to say to Niantic, listen to the players and listen to your customers. The only reason why we play is because we actually love Pokémon. The things we don’t love are the way you handle our childhood memories making us pay for every little thing just to get ahead. Pokémon was made for the adventurous not the ones with the deepest pockets.

- Great game

Let me start out by saying: I love the game. I originally got the game when it first came out and stopped playing after a few months but ended up coming back to the game a little over a year ago. Recently I’ve started noticing that the Pokestops items ratio is very skewed. The main items you can receive are pokeballs, berries, potions, eggs, and if you are lucky, some sort of evolution stone. My main concern is the rarity of some of these items. Pokeballs are the most common item which is good as you can lose those quickly if you catch a lot of Pokémon. The second most common item is berries which is fine, and the third most common item are potions. I keep finding myself in situations where I’ve just defeated a gym or raid and I need to heal a Pokemon but I have nothing to do it with. I have an abundance of berries but no potions. And it’s kind of annoying as I want to participate in raids and gyms and even the new team rocket go missions but I don’t have any Pokémon that can participate as they are all super low level. I feel like the potion to berry ratio needs to be switched or updated in order to fix this flaw in the game. Again, I love the game, but it’s making the game nearly unplayable for me.

- Great interactive game, But.....

I have had this game since it came out and have loved almost every min of it. There is always something new going on, new to catch, and new friends to be made. But yes there is a but. Lately the game has been experiencing a lot of technical issues, such as kicking people from remote raids and events not going to plan. I understand that with a game that has this many users it is to be expected that thing will go wrong. But when you contact the support hoping to get resolution to the issues, then being told there is nothing they can do. I spend actual money on the game to get the full experience and enjoy what others in lager city’s/communities do, being from small country town. I work hard for what little I get, and for them to say there is nothing they can do is to me BS. They made $17million from the last event because of people like me who love the game and want the full experience. I would still say try the game but maybe not spend money on it, because if something happens to where you lose out on something you bought from them, well you probably won’t get any good results back from their support. Just keep that in mind.

- I love it

This review is to tell you that I love this game and I can’t wait for the new evolved Eevee to come out The silver on leafeon Pokémon like that.I already have most of the evolved eevee Jolteon Flareon and last of all vaporreon was my first evolved Eevee and it’s like 1500 something and it’s annoying how low it is and it’s even more difficult for my Flareon because it’s 1300 something it’s not fair Flareon supposed to be the highest and it’s there and us it’s lower than my Vape porion sorry about the spacing between the names dictating does that I love this game and I I’ve only been playing it for for A few months now and I already have in team and all those Pokémon my dad is jealous because I have a sableye and l think this game is good for families that are wanting to play with each other so I love this game and I recommend you download it because it’s great and maybe you could make so that dragon and rare Pokémon come out a little more because my dad is really jealous because I have a lot of things he does not this is good for families who want to spend time with each other I’m sorry that the review was really long bye✋🏻😻😻😻😻😻🙀😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻🙀🙀😻🙀😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻😻 love many happy campers

- The Game Has Changed ( Literally)

I am returning player from 2016 and let me tell you this game is so much better than it was during its first year of release. I quickly got bored of the game back in 2016 because there wasn’t much to do outside of catching Pokémon. After the initial rush of everyone playing POGO for nostalgia, the base of players quickly shrank and I think for good reason. My girlfriend convinced me to start playing again in August of 2019 and since then they have added so much to the game. The two most notable is the public PVP system and the new buddy system. Along with that, Niantic has been excellent in supporting the game with events every week of the month including: Community Days, Spotlight hours, Raid hour, Go Fest, daily challenges, and the list goes on. They have also been great during COVID with generous bonuses for players making it easier to rank up. You really do not need to pay to play this game. You can rank up to the top level of 40 without paying, it will just take longer for you. I’d easily reccomend this game to anyone I talk too. It’s been great this past year and has kept me sane during COVID shutdowns.

- Good but has problems

I have played this game for a while and have deleted and reinstalled it many times. Overall it is a good game but because of the lack of people still playing Pokémon Go it is hard to win 5 star raid battles or just trade with your friends. Another thing is that it is very hard to level up pokémon in any way besides making that pokémon your partner and grinding candies for weeks if not longer, depending on how long you walk every day. I currently have a challenge that wants me to evolve a magicarp and as you know it requires 400 candies to evolve a magicarp into a gyrados so i will probably not complete this challenge for a long time which is annoying. I also have multiple weak shiny pokémon which i would like to evolve but they require too many candies and too much of my time. All i ask is that you make an easier way to get candies for your pokemon that are not your buddy. Like maybe when you spin a pokestop there would be a decent chance of getting a rainbow candy which you can use on the pokémon of your choice. Well anyway I hope you have read this and consider the things that i have suggested ✌️

- App kept crashing on my new iPhone xs max

Here’s my story...about a week ago I decided to buy the new series 4 watch and the new iPhone xs max. I was excited about using this app on my new watch since I’ve never owned an Apple Watch till recently. Anyway I launched the app and was prompted like normal to sign in to my google account, which I did. When the app reached 100% load time it simply crashed and shut down. I know this was a problem in the early stages of when the app had launched, so I did all the basic troubleshooting....restarted my phone, uninstalled the app and reinstalled, cleared browsing history, deleted account associated with google..all of that didn’t work so of course I was starting to get frustrated and was ready to write a review with a one star rating. But I kept my composure and thought outside the box, turns out that the cause for the crashes was with my watch. So what I did was uninstalled the app associated with my watch, relaunched the app from my phone, signed on, waited till the app launched completely and then installed the app on my watch. Anyhow I just wanted to share this experience in case anyone else out there ends up going through the same issue.

- Overall above average game

Pokémon go is pretty good if you live in an area with a lot of poke stops but if you don’t then you’re screwed. I live in a rural area and even though there are some stops and gyms there aren’t enough to sustain my supply of poke balls. If I go out and play I will end up catching a lot of Pokémon and run out of balls very quickly because there aren’t enough stops. So what I end up doing is I travel to the city where there are a lot of stops and it’s pretty fun playing there because there are a lot of gyms and stops but it’s very annoying to have to drive to the city every time I want to play. Also I know a lot of people have already said this but there should be trading and PVP it would make the game a lot better and more enjoyable. I also think there should be an easier way to get poke coins because the only way you can is to put your Pokémon in gyms and you only get 1 coin for every 10 minutes and it Maxs out at 50 coins. I feel like you should get 1 coin every 5 stops you spin or something similar to that because there should be another way to get coins. But even though there are a lot of negatives to Pokémon go it is very fun if you are in a good area.

- Personal goals system

So I love playing this game and have been with them since the beginning. Niantic has put in systems that have helped the game grow and stay in the top charts. I loved it when they added the 7 day streaks system. It gave me more XP and Stardust on a regular basis and I really needed it. I was thinking that they should add personal goals in Pokémon Go. For example, there could be daily and weekly challenges that could grant you Poké Coins, super incubators, and other bundles of items. In addition to personal goals, I believe that Niantic should scrap the EX Raids and make it so that you need to complete your own goals in order to attempt to catch Mewtwo. This way you won’t have to rely on luck as much and you don’t need to rely on other players. Another idea is that there should be a “Sell” option in he shop. Just like in the Pokémon games, you can sell items that either are worth a lot or don’t have any use for you. I have so 300+ total potions that’s I have to just discard to make more room for Poké balls. It would be awesome if I could sell the items I don’t want and receive Poké coins. It’s just a thought. I love this game so much and I hope the updates keep on rolling in!

- Recently returned and want to play more, but..

I was one of those players who played at launch for a month, and was driven away by how hollow the game was. There has been a lot of improvement since then. I’ve recently moved to Florida from the far north and am motivated to spend more time outside. Enter my Pokémon GO revival: The game itself is fun and engaging now that there has been a lot of content added. You can read that in any review. The criticisms I’d like to contribute outweigh the benefits I’ve been enjoying lately. Niantic has a bad reputation when it comes to app support and listening to customer feedback. The notable exception being during in game events that they need to continually host in order to sustain a player base. iPhone X users had been waiting for an update to support their device for quite some time, despite developers having more than adequate time to provide it. Niantic’s solution, nearly a full month after the iPhone X release, was to zoom everything in and make everything look and feel wonky. The edges are also cut off so they could stretch the UI vertically. Lazy and sloppy. There’s no excuse for this, and my rating will remain at 1 star until this is addressed. iPhone X users now have a smaller usable map on a larger display. The game was more playable before they “supported the iPhone X.” Get your stuff together, Niantic.

- Individual quests??

The game could use some individual quests where specific targets and goals need to be reached in order to capture a particular type of Pokémon. While the camaraderie that the raids bring out is fantastic, it also brings out certain drawbacks where trainers don’t utilize their stardust (many have saved up but relatively untapped because there’s really no reason to) to properly power up their Pokémon to assist with defeating Raid bosses leaving the burden to the rest of the trainers. While in a larger settings with 10+ trainers it really doesn’t matter but the underlying issues are that these raids are simply hand outs. The raids are often too easily won without much of a challenge. Experiences are too easily achieved, rewards are overwhelmingly abundant. There isn’t much that needs to be done from a strategic point of view. Perhaps individual goals or making the Raid bosses more difficult to actually defeat or returning the old gym system with highest CP on top. Currently as it stands, rare candies are in no shortage for the most part for those who participate in many raids; for some-stardust may be the limiting agent but that can be solved by catching more over time. For others, they keep storing their stardust and don’t necessarily use them because there hasn’t been any compelling reasons to.

- Love it!

People that don’t have the game don’t understand how fun it is and how big the community is. Wherever you go, or at least all over my area, you can always find people playing. It’s such a fun concept and has so many components that build up this amazing game. There is something new very often that keeps you interested. I would definitely recommend it for people of all ages. The only problem I have come across is very new and have only seen it now, which is with the pokestops. Recently double the distance for gyms came out because of the COVID-19 outbreak, which I think is a great idea because you can keep your distance but still play. Only problem- it doesn’t work! When you go to spin the stop, it says try again later over and over again, even when I’m not moving. Not only does it defeat the purpose, but annoys the heck out of me! I needed one more Grunt for a mission and I couldn’t get to it. I had been there spinning the stop without luck for about 5 minutes when I just had to give up. It’s super frustrating and I hope you take this to mind the next time you update your game.

- I’m getting fed up with this game!

I have been playing this game for almost 2 years. I have one account leveled up to 40. I’m working on another account and have it leveled up to 38. I don’t know if it’s Niantic’s issue, Verizon’s issue, or Apples issue, but I’m having constant problems with my gps and my avatar wandering way off. I was at an ex raid this afternoon and couldn’t play at all. I was sitting practically right on top of the gym and my avatar was wondering a few miles off somewhere. This is happening several times a day. On numerous occasions I will actually get into the gym and use my raid pass and my lucky egg, only to have my avatar take off for parts unknown. So I’m out my raid pass, my lucky egg, and the 20,000 xp for the raid. These inventory items cost me money. Another big issue is when I try to sign into the game. At least 1 out of every 3 times I attempt to sign in, the loading screen gets stuck right under the “Y” in the word “your”. That’s where it stays stuck no matter how long I wait. I always have to sign out and completely sign back in. I have played this game for a long time, and when it was working it was fabulous and fun. At this point I’m fed up with wasting money and being frustrated. I’m about ready to look for a new game to waste my hard earned dollars on.

- Makes much more sense but love it either way

You should implement fighting wild Pokémon to weaken them so they can be caught easier. It has been that way in the Pokémon lore all the way from the beginning to now. Pokémon go is the only game that that doesn’t allow you to fight wild Pokémon. Even in all the movies & all the shows this is how you catch Pokémon. You can give them food just like in this game to persuade them but this is not always the case because all Pokémon, just like all people, are different & have different personalities. If you guys could update the game to make it more like the shows & other Pokémon franchises that would be awesome. Because I have way too many revives & potions & I don’t really use them. I don’t have many people near me to play with & I can’t go to the gym near me every day. Thank you so much for this game it is loved around the world, but again if you did this I’m sure you would have double the support & people playing this game! Also the recent player battles update: you should be able to battle random people you’ve never met, & not people you are “”ultra”” friends with. Some people don’t have that much time to make it the “”ultra””.

- Reporting system is bunk

I don’t want to give a bad review that’ll deter people from the game but when you don’t give players an adequate reporting system that’s what it comes down to. Anyway, I have had up to 6 Pokemon posted at different gyms. I have noticed that when some of them return I do not receive currency for their duration in the gym. There is no concrete pattern. It happens at random but it is a very obvious occurrence considering how little pokecoin I have in the first place. Most of the Pokemon are posted in gyms for more than 24 hours and I still would not receive currency. It seems as if there is only a 50 coin limit PERIOD instead of per gym no matter the duration so it honestly feels like the incentive of the game has just disappeared completely. Also, the lure modules do NOT work (I get on average 2 Pokemon for 30 mins) and the incense yields only about 5 Pokemon IF you’re lucky during the 30 minutes it’s active. It’s also pretty frustrating getting only 3 poke balls per pokestop. I live in a suburban area that literally has only 3 known gyms and 6 pokestops. All about a 10-15 minute drive from my house. I really want to keep playing but I shouldn’t have to drive 20-45 minutes to get to a diverse Pokemon hunting ground.

- Game can be breeze or unplayable based on location

So let me start by saying this game had potential, but it has been ruining itself with worse and worse changes since rollout. The game depends on having a L O T of pokeballs. That’s it. That’s the game. If you never run out of pokeballs, you can always get XP and candy, and you’re good. Game plays as it should, encourages walking, level up at a decent rate, general good fun. But if you have no pokeballs, every aspect of this game dies. Now pokemon spawns do nothing but tease what you could have had, none of the tasks can be completed, no pokemon can be evolved, and you are left with just step counter that hatches virtual eggs. And since pokeballs are received by visiting gyms and pokestops, well that means that if you don’t live in a city or happen to live next to a Starbucks you can’t play. This inequality makes so many people give up that as an added benefit, if you do walk the half hour walk or whatever it is to the closest gym you won’t be able to actually beat any raids, because there aren’t enough players. If you live in a big city, this game works fine. If you live in a crowded country, this game works great. But for everyone else, 3 years after release, this game still isn’t playable

- App stability issues and money pit

The concept is great. With promoting a healthier and more active lifestyle in a game, PokemonGo created a new vertical in gaming. But that's about it. The app stability is horrendous. Having been around 4 years now, you would think that the game would run more smoothly, nope. Remote raids (while a great idea) are a 50/50 shot. There is a built in timer that times out early because the developers know that there is a huge latency is remote raid invites. Additionally, 250 pokecoins for 3 remote raid passes is absurd. That equates to about 58 cents per raid if buying the $100 coins pack. And, it doesn't gurnatee you catch the legendary or mythical Pokemon (which is fine, that's part of Pokemon from the beginning). 3 passes shouldn't be more than. 100 coins. Raids are probably one of the most popular features of the game to get awesome Pokemon, and with a chance to get shiny ones. But, I have done over 50 raids for two different raid weeks each, and didn't get a shiny either time. That's over $60. Come on, Niantic. You guys have built a strong foundation, now seriously focus on stability and don't be unbelievably greedy. I always believe that spending money on in-game purchases is good if you enjoy the game to support the developers, but there are some serious issues to address.

- Just some suggestions

I love this game it is super fun and it encourages you to walk while collecting Pokémon for fun. The only thing I would change about this app is that it’s kinda difficult to level up, you can’t customize the hairstyle of your character, and you cant change your team. I feel like you should be able to change you team and hairstyle because for the team at the beginning ,while we were able to chose I didn’t know what were those colors/teams so I just chooses my favorite color at the time and now that I know what they mean I want to change it, but I can’t ;( and I feel like the new people that have never had Pokémon cards or watched Pokémon don’t know what that was and they provoke may want to change it, And for the hair I remember that at the beginning there were different styles to choose from and hair colors, and sometimes I wish that I could change my hairstyle so I go to edit my avatar and it lets me change the color of my hair, but not the styles! By the way if you took out the features for hairstyles then please bring it back it would’ve bring more customization for you character in the game, and while you le at it I also think some new shoes styles would be great.

- Best App I have, but...

Pokémon in general are awesome to me. Pokémon go makes it a reality of being able to interact with Pokémon, not fully. Pokémon go is a great way to help me start walking around when there is a new Pokémon nearby. (however I’m never successful. 😂) But however, as amazing as this game is, I still wish you were able to interact with the Pokémon on a new level. In the Nintendo Pokémon games, you have the ability to play games, feed it, pet it, and raise its happiness. However this isn’t the case for Pokémon go. Giving players the experience to get to know their Pokémon and grow closer to them makes the game a lot more enjoyable, and gives perks in the actual game. Such as raising its happiness level, (which makes certain Pokémon evolve), raises its accuracy when it has higher happiness levels, and makes the Pokémon a lot more friendly, and more obedient. If the creators of Pokémon go just added this feature, I would be playing Pokemon go NON STOP. Literally, I would probably not stop playing. 😂 I’m sorry for rambling about, I’m done preaching. Thanks for listening to my wishes and my sincere gratitude for the creators, of Pokémon Go.

- I give up

I can’t believe that they are getting rid of the Adventure Sync. It won’t even register what I have done in walking to count towards my pokei candy or egg hatching. I work up to 70 hours a week and don’t get to play that often anymore but I could always rely on adventure sync to keep me from falling to far behind in the game. The fact that can’t track any of my workouts or walks with out my phone is such a disappointment, when I would go to the park to run or walk I could leave my phone and just use my Apple Watch to track my distance but now I can’t even do that anymore. To have put hundreds of dollars into this game since it 1st came out to have this happen just feels like a slap in the face being a user that would check my Pokémon go account at least every couple of days to see where my progress was, but I guess there is no point now that my only way of being able to play the game isn’t working and will be completely removed by July the 1st. Such a waste guess you guys lost a customer cuz I have no reason to spend money on a game I can’t use anymore 😒

- Spawn Removal

Had really been enjoying the game recently, but the removal of so many spawn points has removed a lot of the fun as well as my desire to play as much. I don’t say this as someone who had unreasonably large cluster spawns nearby prior and is just upset an unfair advantage is gone. That was never the case where we live. We had the occasional nearby spawns here and there throughout the day. It was reasonable and pleasant and cause to play the game on those days and during those moments when we couldn’t necessarily make a longer trek to some mon heavy destination further away. Now those are gone. And with them gone it’s discouraging me from picking up the game casually which, in turn, leads to me caring even less about making the larger treks. All this is very much leading to an out of sight, out of mind mentality. Really hoping this is fixed because the last year’s play has been a lot of fun. This, however, is not. The concept of nothing approaching some more casual moments of play in favor of something that’s ONLY large amounts of effort requiring significantly large amounts of travel is not appealing. This is doubly bad given even the places that had required larger treks are now also less rewarding thanks to fewer spawns once there. This was a really bad change to the game.

- Amazing, but still needs improvement

I love Pokémon Go and I am overall very satisfied with the game so far. But for the special research, it’s telling me to catch a Ditto, even though I already have one. It really bugs me because as far as I can tell you can’t catch two Dittos, so can you please fix that? Also, it must have been in one of the recent updates that the “appraise” function used on Pokémon changed...please fix this! It used to be where the team leader would come and talk to you about your Pokémon’s size (I.e: “___ is a little small for its kind, don’t you think?”) and then tell you about the best qualities it possesses during battle. (ie: “Its best quality is its Attack.”) Now, the team leader still comes to talk to you about your Pokémon’s size, but now, for some reason, instead of talking about its best battle tactics, it just tells you where it was caught and when. I like this feature, but can you please add the other stuff back? Unless you traded Pokémon, I don’t really see a reason why you wouldn’t remember where/when it was caught; or why you would want to remember. But otherwise, I really enjoy this game; everything else is amazing. Thank you!

- Last couple updates slowly made game unplayable!

Update 01/09 Game has suddenly started to work once again and not force closing. Don’t know why, maybe the 3rd delete and reinstall did it because there was no new update that I know of but maybe they fixed something on the server side but that being said, I’m a happy camper lol for now 😬 This was one of my favorite games, it really is a great game. I enjoy it very much. Definitely one of the few apps I actually do in-app purchases for. Only ridiculous downside is how sometimes to catch a Pokémon it can take up to like 5,6,7 balls just to catch a random Pokémon even low cp ones it’s ridiculous because they make these pokeballs hard to come by and get but want to make us use that many on one catch!! Not right!! Anyways the game worked fine but the last like 2 or 3 updates slowly messed up the app working, at first it kind of started to randomly kick me out of app here and there then next update made it more so and the last one well now it opens to about the game loading and signing in and then force closes! So game is UNPLAYABLE SINCE LAST UPDATE!! Hope they actually fix whatever the issue is ASAP

- Could be a lot better!!!

For small town people hunting Pokemon is TOO much a grind. Not enough Pokémon stops and when you do find one the items in them are practically useless. Would be a lot better if more Pokémon would appear in more places even those that aren’t over crowded. Second we need the ability to buy more than pokeballs. Great balls and ultra balls would be super awesome. The way Pokémon lvl up and gain maybe 10-50 points per cp and maybe 2 per hp is bull by a mile. Why would anyone wait to battle trainers after 90 days of playing assuming they connect everyday and exchange “gifts”. That’s a game kill for sure given Pokémon’s origin. If we could trade or send items not just in gifts would be great also. I like the Pokémon aspect of things but I hate the way the game is designed. It shouldn’t take this long to make any real progress. Trading Pokémon should be global completely if you are friends. In the animation they send all over the world!!!! This game isn’t designed to bring people together actively unless you have a massive group of people. Most people I know would rather stick to the handheld Pokémon than Pokémon go because it’s nothing like it should be. More items in pokestops and more random mixed Pokémon please!
